  How does a mammalian cell physically organise the complex processes of gene expression and regulation?
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr J Sleeman
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Accurate gene expression and regulation in mammalian cells is a hugely complex process, essential for cellular and organismal homeostasis.
  Partitioning primary and secondary changes of gene expression caused by gene mutations
  Dr D Talavera, Prof G D Pavitt, Dr J-M Schwartz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Control of gene expression is a complex cell process, which involves balancing both the synthesis and the degradation of RNA and protein so as to establish optimal levels of each protein.
  (MRC DTP) Understanding the role and regulation of a tumour suppressor’s oscillatory gene expression in cancer cell plasticity
  Prof N Papalopulu, Dr R Clarke, Dr T House
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Advances in breast cancer treatment mean that more patients survive cancer than ever before. However, in estrogen positive (ER+) breast cancer, the most common type of breast cancer, some patients either develop resistance to anti-estrogen therapies during the treatment itself or relapse after the end of treatment.
  Identifying global regulators of effector gene expression in the rice blast fungus (TALBOTS20DTP)
  Prof N Talbot
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Magnaporthe oryzae is the causal agent of rice blast, one of the most serious diseases affecting rice cultivation around the world.
  Functions of cyclin-dependent kinase 11 (CDK11) in regulation of gene expression
  Dr D Blažek, Assoc Prof Z Zdráhal, Dr P Alexiou
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

CDK11 is ubiquitously expressed in all tissues and the CDK11 null mouse is lethal at an early stage of development indicating an important role for Cdk11 in the adult as well as during development.
  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.
  Intronic gene silencing: new mechanism of gene expression regulation and its relevance to cancer
  Dr M Gullerova
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mammalian cells employ small RNAs (sRNAs) molecules to regulate gene expression in a pathway known as RNA interference (RNAi). Transfer RNAs (tRNAs) are essential for translation but also serve as a source for tRNA-derived small RNAs (tsRNAs).
  Molecular Mechanisms for the Regulation of IL-10 Production in T Cells
  Dr A O’Garra.
Application Deadline: 12 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 4-year PhD studentship is offered in Dr Anne O’Garra’s Group based at the Francis Crick Institute (the Crick). Interleukin (IL)-10 is critical for limiting the immune response to pathogens, therefore preventing immunopathology [1].
  Evolution of gene regulatory networks after gene duplication
  Research Group: Lymphocyte Development
  Prof M Merkenschlager, Dr P Sarkies
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Throughout evolution multicellular organisms have experienced large-scale structural alterations, in which regions of the genome or even the entire genome have been duplicated (1-7).
  Eukaryotic gene expression: understanding the role of UPF1 in global mRNA processing and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
  Dr S Brogna
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project’s specific objective is to study the molecular role(s) that the RNA helicase UPF1 plays in RNA processing. UPF1 is a key player in nonsense-mediated mRNA decay (NMD), it is universally conserved in eukaryotes and is essential to the development of many organisms [1].
