  Hematopoietic Stem Cell Genetics: Using single cell biology and genetics to understand how hematopoietic stem cells normally sustain blood formation, and how this process is altered during ageing and when leukemia develops.
  Prof Claus Nerlov, Dr P Vyas
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
Using single cell biology and genetics to understand how hematopoietic stem cells normally sustain blood formation, and how this process is altered during ageing and when leukemia develops.
  Genetics and Genomics of Type 2 Diabetes: using human genetics to drive a mechanistic understanding of type 2 diabetes and to identify novel translational opportunities
  Prof M I McCarthy, Dr A Gloyn
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
We focus on the use of human genetics to drive a mechanistic understanding of type 2 diabetes, and to identify novel translational opportunities.
  Spatio-temporal dynamics of plague vectors in Madagascar: using population genetics and landscape scale modelling to inform disease reduction strategies
  Dr S Telfer, Dr S Helyar
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Many emerging diseases are zoonotic (transmitted from animal to human), with human exposure typically higher in low income countries.
  PhD in Cancer & Genetics - Targeting intestinal cancer using 3D organoid cell models
  Prof J R Sampson, Dr L Thomas
Application Deadline: 27 February 2019
Over one million new cases of colorectal cancer (CRC) are diagnosed worldwide each year. Inherited factors appear to be involved in up to 35% of cases.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Understanding the genetics of melanoma by studying heritable risk factors
  Dr MM Iles, Prof T Bishop
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Background. Melanoma is the fifth most common cancer in the UK and its incidence has risen faster than any other common cancer - a five-fold increase since 1975.
  Developing and applying computational methods to understand the genetics of ageing
  Dr JP de Magalhaes
Applications accepted all year round
Ageing is the chief biomedical challenge of the 21st century, yet it remains a major puzzle of biology. Although it is clear that the process of ageing has a strong genetic component, much work remains to elucidate how the genome regulates ageing.
  Statistical and Molecular Genetics of Complex Traits
  Prof Z Luo
Applications accepted all year round
Most characters of any living organism are polygenically controlled and environmentally modified, including those threatening human health and those important in breeding for high yield, better quality and improved adaption of animals, plants and microbes.
  Statistical genetics and genomics of complex traits
  Dr L Leach, Prof Z Luo
Applications accepted all year round
A highly motivated student is sought to train as a statistical geneticist working on the dissection of complex trait phenotypes in human, plant and animal populations into their underlying genetic components.
  Using genetics to explore patterns of change in weight and height during key life course periods on subsequent health outcomes
  Prof D Lawlor, Prof K Tilling, Dr N Warrington
Application Deadline: 1 February 2019
3/4-year PhD starting in October 2019. Closing date. 5pm, 1st February 2019. We are offering an exciting PhD opportunity for candidates interested in using innovative statistical methods to investigate the causal role of pubertal growth on health outcomes in adulthood.
  Genetics and molecular basis of insect resistance in forest trees
  Prof J Mackay
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Background. Insect pests pose a rapidly growing threat to the sustainability of forest systems as a result of climate change and globalisation of commerce.
