  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.
  Understanding regulation of gene expression during development via an integrated computational analysis of ‘omics data
  Prof S Hubbard, Prof S Griffiths-Jones, Dr M Baron
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Embryonic development requires exquisite control of the expression of large numbers of genes, integrating components from the genome, transcriptome and proteome.
  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.
  Uncovering the role of RNA m6A modification in germ cell proliferation (AKAYU20DTP1)
  Dr A Akay, Prof T Dalmay
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Germline stem cells are essential for the survival of organisms by giving rise to the offspring. Gene expression changes within the germ cells can affect embryonic development and in some organisms such changes are transgenerationally inherited.
  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.
  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.
  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.
  Dynamic cell fate decisions: linking mechanical signals and protein expression dynamics in the developing eye to understand human developmental disorders
  Dr Cerys Manning, Prof N Papalopulu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inherited developmental disorders account for much of childhood visual impairment. Development of the eye requires cell fate decisions that balance stem cell proliferation and differentiation.
  Exploiting the true joint progenitor cell for articular cartilage repair
  Prof D Chan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Articular cartilage facilitates the frictionless motion of synovial joints. However, once damaged from trauma or excessive loading in daily use, repair is very poor leading to osteoarthritis (OA), a huge medical and social burden.
  (MRC DTP) Modelling inherited developmental ocular disorders using in vitro organoids to understand retinal stem cell fate decisions
  Dr Cerys Manning, Prof G Black
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inherited developmental disorders account for much of childhood visual impairment. During early eye development stem cells must balance fate decisions between proliferation and differentiation at the same time as undergoing cell migration and morphogenesis to prevent such disorders.
