  Sexual conflict in moths, NERC GW4+ DTP, PhD in Biosciences studentship
  Dr N Wedell, Prof D Hosken
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Location. University of Exeter, Penryn Campus, Penryn, Cornwall TR10 9FE. This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  (BBSRC DTP) Partitioning primary and secondary changes of gene expression caused by gene mutations
  Dr D Talavera, Prof G D Pavitt, Dr J-M Schwartz
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
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.
  *IAPETUS* Gene expression and sexual selection in sex role reversed flies
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Prof MG Ritchie
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Empid flies (commonly known as dance flies) are exceptional in displaying elaborate sexually selected morphologies and behaviours in females.
  Evolutionary consequences of sexual mode switches on gene expression
  Dr R Hammond, Dr E Mallon
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The evolution of separate sexes - males and females (dioecy) – sets in train evolutionary conflicts between those genes that benefit females and those that benefit males.
  Eukaryotic RNA biology: understanding the role that the RNA helicase UPF1 plays in gene expression
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr S Brogna
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
UPF1 is an RNA helicase that is conserved in all eukaryotes and it is best known for its role in nonsense-mediated mRNA decay (NMD).
  Functions of cyclin-dependent kinase 11 (CDK11) in regulation of gene expression
  Dr D Blažek, Assoc Prof Z Zdráhal, Dr P Alexiou
Application Deadline: 15 March 2019
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.
  Chromatin remodelling in health and disease: determining the role of ATRX in the maintenance of chromatin and how mutations perturb disparate nuclear nuclear processes and lead to human disease
  Dr R Gibbons, Prof D Higgs
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
It has become apparent that the regulation of chromatin structure is of paramount importance in a wide variety of fundamental nuclear processes including gene expression, DNA replication, repair and recombination.
  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Connecting Molecular Profiles to Phenotype: A Proteomic Resource for Assigning Cell Cycle and Senescent States
  Research Group: Institute of Cell Biology
  Dr T Ly, Dr A Lindqvist
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Background. Cellular heterogeneity is frequently found in solid tumours and is thought to contribute to resistance to cancer therapy.
  Gene Regulation: How mammalian genes are switched on and off during development and differentiation and how this goes awry in human genetic diseases
  Prof D Higgs, Assoc Prof J Hughes, Dr R Gibbons, Dr V Buckle
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Other Potential Supervisors. Mira Kassouf. Our laboratory addresses the question of how mammalian genes are switched on and off during development, lineage commitment and differentiation.
  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
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].
