  Development of the hematopoietic/ immune system in the embryo: obtaining a mechanistic insight into the birth of hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells in embryonic development
  Prof M DeBruijn
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Development of the hematopoietic/ immune system in the embryo. Our aim is to obtain a mechanistic insight into the birth of hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells in embryonic development and determine the contribution of these cells to the emerging hematopoietic and immune systems of the embryo.
  Epitranscriptomic mechanisms in the maternal to zygotic transition of vertebrate embryos
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr M Soller, Prof F Mueller
Applications accepted all year round
Most mRNAs contain modified nucleotides in mRNA, but we know very little about their function (Haussmann et al, 2016, Dezi et al, 2016, Roignant and Soller, 2017).
  The Biology of Suspended Animation 2: discovering the process by which a diapausing embryo “senses” environmental cues to subsequently resume development
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Prof J Colbourne, Dr L Orsini, Prof M Viant, Prof J B Brown
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Project outline. Diapause is a natural process by which an organism enters a state of suspended animation in response to environmental challenges.
  Eomes-dependent transcriptional networks directing cell fate specification in the embryo
  Prof E Robertson
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Our work aims to understand the regulatory cues that guide cell fate decisions in the early mouse embryo.
  Integration of metabolic and developmental cues by the Arabidopsis endosperm
  Dr V Andriotis
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Seeds of flowering plants are made of distinct tissues – the embryo, endosperm and integuments – that collectively make a functional unit.
  Signalling pathways maintaining human embryonic stem cells
  Prof S J Kimber, Prof D Brison
Applications accepted all year round
The aim of this project is to determine the function of novel genes predicted to have critical roles in preimplantation human development and in disease in later life.
  Assessment of nanomaterial toxicity using alternative, non-rodent models
  Dr H Johnston
Application Deadline: 8 February 2019
The PhD will employ complex 3D in vitro or zebrafish embryo models to assess the toxicity of nanomaterials of varied physico-chemical properties to investigate impacts on the lung, immune system or intestine.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Understanding asymmetric cell divisions at the onset of life
  Dr J Rodriguez, Prof M Herbert
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
To generate a complex organism from a single-cell embryo, cells divide asymmetrically acquiring structural and functional differences.
  Actin-dependent mechanisms of chromosome segregation in mammalian eggs
  Dr B Mogessie
Applications accepted all year round
Every human life starts when an egg is fertilised by a sperm. Fertilisable eggs are produced from oocytes by a specialised form of cell division called meiosis (1).
  4 Year Wellcome Trust PhD Programme: Role of NICD stability turnover in development and breast cancer.
  Dr J K Dale
Application Deadline: 14 December 2018
My lab has recently found Notch ICD stability is regulated in a cell cycle dependent manner. We have shown this in HEK293 cells. This work is currently under revision.
