4-year PhD Studentship: A genetic atlas of human molecular phenotypes for causal modelling of disease

Genome wide association studies enable the mapping of genetic effects to molecular phenotypes (such as gene expression levels or protein levels in specific tissues), and those genetic effects can then be mapped to disease traits for causal inference using a statistical framework known as Mendelian randomisation (e.g. Read more

Using ex-vivo genetic systems as models to detect genetic susceptibility to co-morbidities in Covid 19 infection, and to test specific anti-inflammatory / antiviral drugs in Covid 19 infection

  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
Research has shown that certain individuals are more susceptible to SARS-CoV-2. Approximately, 20–51% of COVID-19 patients presented with a least one co-morbidity on admission, with diabetes (10–20%) hypertension (10–15%) and other cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases (7–40%) being most prevalent.

4-year PhD Studentship: The relationship of psychological symptoms in dementias to genetic risk

Behavioural and neuropsychological symptoms are very common in dementias such as Alzheimer's Disease. These behavioural and neuropsychological symptoms cause considerable distress, are difficult to treat and the underlying biology remains unclear. Read more

Deep phenotyping of genetic syndromes associated with autism

Autism is an extremely heterogeneous condition. Some of this variability results from genetic heterogeneity. Some rare genetic conditions appear to have an increased prevalence of autism. Read more

Development and Evolution of Shapes: Investigating the genetic pathways governing the leaf shape in Arabidopsis

The shapes and sizes of organisms and organs are scrupulously conserved within a species. What regulates the shapes and sizes of organisms and their lateral organs are intriguing and fundamental questions in Biology. Read more

Understanding Historical and Contemporary Forces Shaping Tropical Biodiversity for Future Conservation

The large amount of environmental change that has occurred during the Pleistocene, in which tropical forests and grasslands have repeatedly contracted and expanded, has dramatically shaped the biodiversity of tropical ecosystems. Read more

A PhD Position focusing on molecular and network mechanisms-derived targeted intervention in neonatal genetic epilepsies is available at the Section for Translational Epilepsy Research, Institute of Neuropathology, University Bonn Medical School, Germany. Read more

Ecosystem functioning: a Southern and Northern Hemisphere freshwater comparison

Project Background. Freshwater ecosystems provide key ecosystem services but are among the most threatened globally due to pollution, eutrophication, overexploitation, land-use change and invasive species (Dudgeon et al. Read more
