  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.
  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.
  Expanded potential stem cells for regenerative medicine, immunotherapy, and biotechnology
  Prof P Lui
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.
  Investigating the role of membrane transporters in early development
  Research Group: Chromatin & Development
  Dr M Percharde, Dr L Fets
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is a joint project between the Chromatin and Development and the Drug Transport and Tumour Metabolism groups within the MRC LMS.
  Epigentic control of muscle development: the impact of chromatin accessibility on gene regulation (MUNSTERBERGU20DTP1)
  Prof A E Munsterberg, Dr W Haerty
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Skeletal muscle is important for health and well-being throughout life. To understand better the factors that contribute to the maintenance of this important tissue, we study its development in the embryo.
  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).
  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.
  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.
  Characterization of monoallelic regulation variation and aneuploidy associated dosage compensation mechanisms in human pre-implantation embryos (MONKU20DTP1)
  Dr D Monk, Dr W Haerty
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are developing and applying computational and experimental methods to help decipher the underlying reason why some human embryos undergo spontaneous developmental arrest.
  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.
