  PhD In ovo nutrition and embryonic gut development in chickens
  Dr M Navarro-Gomez
Application Deadline: 6 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are a research institute of The University of Queensland, one of the world’s leading research providers in tropical and sub-tropical agriculture and food production.
  Deciphering the principles underlying specification of endoderm versus mesoderm in mouse embryonic stem cells
  Dr C Hill
Application Deadline: 12 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 4-year PhD studentship is offered in Dr Caroline Hill’s Group based at the Francis Crick Institute (the Crick). Our lab focuses on the transforming growth factor beta (TGF-b) superfamily of ligands which comprises the TGF-bs, Activins, Nodal, BMPs and GDFs.
  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.
  Modeling differentiation of human embryonic stem cells and induced pluripotent stem cells into endodermal derivatives
  Prof A Adamo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Laboratory of Stem Cells and Diseases (STEMD-Lab) is seeking a highly motivated candidate to develop a project based on the use of human embryonic stem cells (hES) and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) to derive glucose sensitive differentiated cell types (i.e.
  Understanding the gene regulatory landscape of embryonic stem cells and cancer cells
  Prof A Sharrocks, Prof M Rattray
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cell identity is ultimately determined through decoding the genome through the action of gene regulatory mechanisms. In particular, sculpting of the chromatin landscape to reveal unique configurations of gene regulatory elements in each cell type is a major driver of cell identity.
  Regulation of autophagy in human embryonic stem cells and its therapeutic application in induced pluripotent stem cell-based disease models
  Dr S Sarkar
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project background. Regulation of proteostasis is critical for maintaining tissue homeostasis. Autophagy, a major intracellular degradation pathway essential for cellular and energy homeostasis, functions in the clearance of aggregation-prone proteins and damaged organelles.
  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.
  Investigating the function of developmental regulators in early human embryogenesis and stem cells
  Dr K Niakan
Application Deadline: 12 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 4-year PhD studentship is offered in Dr Kathy Niakan’’s Group based at the Francis Crick Institute (the Crick). This project will characterise key regulators of human embryogenesis.
  Gifts that keep on giving: maternal effects and insect pest control (CHAPMANU20DTP1)
  Prof T Chapman, Dr P Leftwich
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The student will train at the interface of genetic engineering and fundamental biology to understand the role of maternal RNAs in early 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.
