  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.
  (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).
  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.
  Understanding embryonic development of complex anatomy with novel reporter transgenic chickens and single cell sequencing
  Dr M Davey, Dr J Rainger
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019
For project description and full application procedures please go to. https://www.ed.ac.uk/roslin/postgraduate/studentships/understanding-embryonic-development-of-complex-anatomy-with-novel-reporter-transgenic-chickens-and-single-cell-sequencing.
  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: 26 July 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.
  Developmental response induced by abiotic stress during seed development in Brassica sp.
  Dr H.S Robert Boisivon
Application Deadline: 3 February 2019
Food production mostly relies on a proper sexual plant reproduction. Therefore research in fundamental aspects of seed development is crucial to the understanding of processes involved in seed viability.
  Gene Regulatory Networks in Development and Disease: Focusing on systems level “big picture” approaches to understand gene regulation and build gene regulatory networks during development and disease in zebrafish, chick, lamprey and human models.
  Dr T Sauka-Spengler
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
Focusing on systems level “big picture” approaches to understand gene regulation and build gene regulatory networks during development and disease in zebrafish, chick, lamprey and human models.
  Dissecting the role of DNA methylation in spiral cleavage
  Dr JM Martin, Dr R Lowe
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Nearly all animals originate during a process called embryogenesis, in which a single cell – the zygote – develops into a multicellular complex organism.
  Understanding how the NuRD complex regulates 3D genome organization using a combination of single-molecule super-resolution imaging and single cell biology
  Prof E D Laue
Applications accepted all year round
The spatial organisation of the genome is known to play an important role in regulating RNA transcription to effect cell-type-specific gene expression programs, and to control the differentiation of embryonic stem (ES) cells.
