  Using embryonic stem cell models to determine the importance of post transcriptional gene regulation in the early stages of embryo development
  Dr S Tew, Dr D Turner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This opportunity will close once a successful applicant has been appointed. This project will examine how regulators of gene expression at the post transcriptional level, affect the very earliest processes of embryo development.
  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.
  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.
  Investigation of a completely uncharacterised, embryonically lethal gene in immune cell development
  Dr J James, Prof K Sampath
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The development of vertebrate animals from a single fertilised cell to the fully formed adult is an astonishingly well-choreographed sequence of events, which is made more remarkable by being so faithfully recapitulated on each attempt.
  Development of the hematopoietic/ immune system in the embryo
  Prof M DeBruijn
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.

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.
  The role of the spliceosome protein Prpf8 in embryonic development
  Dr K Hentges
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Errors that occur during cardiac development cause congenital heart defects (CHD). Despite the prevalence of CHD, the developmental processes that ensure the heart forms correctly are still being elucidated.
  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.
  The Hippo pathway and Yap1 in vascular growth control in development and disease
  Prof B Hogan, Dr A. Cox
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lymphatic vessels play roles in the drainage of tissue fluid, trafficking of immune cells and the metastatic spread of cancer.
  Identifying mechanisms regulating collective migration of embryonic progenitor cells
  Dr M Smutny, Prof M Balasubramanian, Dr D Köster
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Collective cell migration plays a fundamental role during development in the embryo and wound healing in adults, and is also a hallmark of invasive cancer cells [1].
  Molecular dissection of blood cell fate determination
  Assoc Prof C Porcher
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over the past decade, numerous efforts have been deployed to reproduce the development of HSCs in vitro from pluripotent stem cells as it happens in the embryo, for mechanistic and therapeutic purposes.

  Early Stage Researcher (PhD Student) position in the field of Bioanalytical Toxicology: “ESR8 - Linking retinoid and thyroid hormone signaling disruption with adverse effects on early development”
  Assoc Prof Klara Hilscherova
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Bioanalytical Toxicology group of RECETOX, Masaryk University in Brno, Czech Republic, and the Marie Skłodowska -Curie Innovative Training Network (MSCA-ITN) project “Best chemical risk assessment professionals for maximum Ecosystem Services benefit (PRORISK)” offer an Early Stage Researcher (PhD Student) position.
  Tracking the motion of single nanoparticles inside living cells: New insights into intracellular crowdedness
  Prof P Borri, Dr TE Woolley, Prof W Langbein, Prof K Swann
Application Deadline: 5 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

EPSRC funded DTP PhD Studentship within the Interdisciplinary Doctoral Training Hub “Physics of Life”. The Hub is designed as a cross-disciplinary PhD research and training programme at the physics/life science interface.
  Building the human endometrium in vitro: The role of macrophages in receptive and decidual endometrium to optimise reproductive health
  Dr E Mann, Dr Peter Ruane, Prof J Aplin, Dr L Mohiyiddeen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The human endometrium is a highly dynamic tissue that rapidly generates over ~20 days and differentiates to form a uterus lining receptive to embryo implantation, further transforming into decidua to support embryonic development, or breaking down before regenerating a few days later.
