  MicroRNA and Extracellular Vesicles Mediation of Embryo-Maternal Communication
  Prof A Fazeli, Dr P Heath
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Infertility is a substantial problem affecting couples worldwide. The scars inflicted on couples as a result of not being able to conceive affects their general health, mental well-being and even raising social issues particularly in the old age.
  Gene regulatory networks in the early zebrafish embryo
  Dr F Wardle
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD studentship is available to work in the laboratory of Dr. Fiona Wardle (www.kcl.ac.uk/research/profile/wardle-group) in the Randall Centre for Cell and Molecular Biophysics, King’s College London.
  The Role of CCR5 in Embryo Development
  Dr R Sturmey
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chemokines are small peptides that play key roles in cell migration and signalling. They act primarily by binding specific cell surface receptors to drive intracellular signalling and are key mediators of the immune response.
  Symmetry breaking in early mammalian organogenesis: the mechanical and cellular basis of gut tube formation
  Dr K McDole
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The McDole lab is a newly established lab that studies how the mouse embryo builds complex structures such as a beating heart or the intricate folds of the brain from initially simple and uniform starting materials.
  Epitranscriptomic mechanisms in the maternal to zygotic transition of vertebrate embryos
  Dr M Soller, Prof F Mueller
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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).
  Molecular control of Eye development: investigating a novel gene network at the root of retinogenesis (GROCOTTU20DTP)
  Dr T Grocott, Prof A E Munsterberg
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The eye is our primary sense organ and a major conduit through which we experience the world around us. Congenital malformations that arise in the developing embryo can compromise vision, accounting for a quarter of all childhood blindness with life-long consequences.
  Expanded potential stem cells for regenerative medicine, immunotherapy, and biotechnology
  Prof P Liu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Embryonic stem cells (ES cells) and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS cells) are pluripotent and thus hold great promise in regenerative medicine, studying disease mechanisms and drug discovery.
  How does epithelial tissue organization modulate pluripotent stem cell identity and fate?
  Dr M Shahbazi
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

During embryogenesis pluripotent stem cells give rise to all the cell types present in the organism. How pluripotent cells decide their fate is a fundamental question in development and regeneration.
  (MRC DTP) Peri-conceptional stress signalling through O-GlcNAcylation: effects on the early maternal-embryonic interface
  Prof J Aplin, Prof D Brison, Dr Peter Ruane, Dr A Stevens
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cellular stress during the peri-conceptional period, including that caused by assisted reproductive treatment (ART), can lead to early pregnancy loss, reduced gestation or birthweight and altered postnatal growth, with short- (neurodevelopmental delay) and long- (cardiovascular and metabolic disease)-term health consequences.
  Plant Stem Cell formation
  Prof T Laux
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are seeking highly motivated candidates for a newly funded PhD position in plant embryo development. The goal is to investigate how the stem cells of the shoot meristem are formed during embryo development.
