  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.
  MRC DTP 4 Year PhD Programme: mRNA cap regulation in embryonic stem cell function
  Prof V Cowling, Dr M Stavridis
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
This project is part of our exciting and challenging University of Dundee 4-year MRC DTP Programme in Quantitative and Interdisciplinary approaches to biomedical science.
  Innate antiviral immunity of human embryonic stem cells
  Research Group: Institute of Immunology & Infection Research
  Dr S Macias, Dr P De Sousa
Application Deadline: 13 December 2018
Unlike differentiated or somatic cells, embryonic stem cells (ESCs) are unable to activate their complete innate immune response when confronted with pathogens such as viruses.
  Roles of histone acetylation in the control of bivalent genes during embryonic stem cell differentiation
  Research Group: Institute of Cell Biology
  Dr P Voigt, Dr A Kerr
Application Deadline: 13 December 2018
Histone modifications play key roles in the regulation of gene expression. In embryonic stem cells, promoters of developmental genes carry a signature combination of histone H3 lysine 4 trimethylation (H3K4me3), which is usually found at active promoters, and H3K27me3, a hallmark of repressive chromatin.
  (BBSRC DTP) Integrative statistical inference methods for eukaryotic gene regulation with applications to embryonic stem cell differentiation
  Prof M Rattray, Dr I Iqbal, Prof A Sharrocks
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Embryonic stem cells (ESCs) can differentiate into different cell types through intermediary cell states and deeper understanding of the regulatory control underlying these differentiation stages is a very important topic in the study of mammalian development (Yang et al., 2014).
  Butterfly evo-devo in a conservation context: how embryos respond to pesticides and immune challenges
  Dr C Breuker
Application Deadline: 3 January 2019
Over the course of their life cycle butterflies are exposed to a range of environmental factors, which act as both inducers of phenotypic variation as well as selective agents.
  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
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.
  4 Year Wellcome Trust PhD Programme: Functions & Applications of a Novel Embryonic Stem Cell Signalling Pathway
  Dr GM Findlay
Application Deadline: 14 December 2018
The Findlay lab employs cutting-edge technologies to unravel Embryonic Stem (ES) cell signalling networks (Williams et al, Cell Rep 2016, Fernandez-Alonso et al, EMBO Rep 2017; Bustos et al, Cell Rep 2018), culminating in our recent discovery of the ERK5 pathway as an exciting new regulator of ES cell pluripotency.
  Mechanisms of poising at bivalent promoters and enhancers in embryonic stem cells
  Research Group: Institute of Cell Biology
  Dr P Voigt
Application Deadline: 13 December 2018
Histone modifications play key roles in the regulation of gene expression. In embryonic stem cells, promoters of developmental genes simultaneously carry histone H3 lysine 4 trimethylation (H3K4me3), which is usually found at active promoters, and H3K27me3, a hallmark of repressive chromatin.
  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.
