  Synthetic Virology: Development of gene delivery vectors/synthetic vaccines
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Prof P G Stockley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is worldwide interest in exploiting our modern understanding of genomics to target gene expression therapeutically via a variety of mechanisms, such as transgene insertion and CRISPR-Cas gene editing.
  Developing optogenetic therapies for retinal degeneration
  Prof R Lucas, Dr Nina Milosavljevic
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Retinal degeneration is the leading cause of blindness in developed countries. The new exciting biological approach of optogenetic therapy in which ectopic expression of photosensitive proteins (photopigments) is used to restore photosensitivity, offers a potential breakthrough for treating these conditions.
  Nanoparticles in drug delivery
  Dr G Stenbeck, Dr U Kishore
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nanoparticles (NPs) are materials with overall dimensions in the nano scale range (5nm-100nm). Due to their unique physicochemical properties, they have found a wide range of applications and are currently explored as drug and gene delivery vehicles.
  Peptide Self-assembling for Biomedical Applications
  Dr X Zhao
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Designed short peptides can self-assemble into different nanostructures (such as nanovesicles and nanofibrils) through weak interactions and have a variety of applications.
  Dual-Action Anti-Cancer Drug Delivery Vehicles
  Prof D K Smith
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer is a challenging disease target, and requires wide-ranging strategies for intervention. Given the difficulties in treating recalcitrant tumours, multi-mode therapies are of significant potential value.
  Creating “super” regulatory T cells to combat rejection, GVHD and autoimmunity through retroviral gene manipulation
  Dr N Jones, Dr S Lee
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research interests/description of main research theme. Foxp3+CD25+CD4+ regulatory T cells (Treg) have been shown to be essential for the induction of tolerance to foreign organ transplants in experimental models.
  Non coding RNAs in Adrenocortical Cancer
  Prof G. Hutvagner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Industry, society or clinical need for project and scientific rationale. Adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) is a rare disease which occurs with an annual incidence of 2-4 cases per million with a five-year survival of less than 16-38%.
  RNAi as a pest management tool in Aphids
  Dr T Davies, Dr S Foster
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

An exciting opportunity for a 3-year AHDB-funded PhD on ‘targeted gene silencing’ to control aphid infestations in UK cereals and oilseeds.
  EMBL Australia Partnership PhD Program

Funding Type

PhD Type

Undertake interdisciplinary, postgraduate research for a PhD degree at Australia's top life science laboratories. Successful students will receive generous scholarships and travel grants while undertaking their PhD at an EMBL Australia laboratory in Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra or Adelaide.
  Metabolic programming: Role of micronutrient (B12) deficiency and associated epigenetic marks
  Dr A Antonysunil
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The global epidemic of childhood obesity is a major public health issue. Although current adverse lifestyle (nutrition and physical inactivity) contributes to obesity, a growing body of evidence links early life nutritional adversity to the development of obesity and metabolic disorders in children.
