  Is epigenetic information is exchanged between sister chromatids to restore chromatin structure and maintain epigenetic information after DNA replication?
  Dr N Francis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

DNA in eukaryotic cells is organized into chromatin. Far from being an inert packing material, chromatin is a rich source of information for gene regulation.
  Epitranscriptomic mechanisms in the maternal to zygotic transition of vertebrate embryos
  Dr M Soller, Prof F Mueller
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most mRNAs contain modified nucleotides in mRNA, but we know very little about their function (Haussmann et al, 2016, Dezi et al, 2016, Roignant and Soller, 2017).
  Does Histone Deacetalyse Inhibition Reduce Atherosclerosis and Stroke Risk (PhD only) 
  Prof H Markus
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Cambridge Stroke Group led the identification of the HDAC9 (histone deacetalyse 9) gene as a risk factor for stroke. The association is specific for large artery stroke due to atherosclerosis.
  Gene Regulation by the KAT6A/MOZ Histone Acetyltransferase
  Prof D Heery
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The human KAT6A and KAT6B genes encode the nuclear proteins MOZ and MORF, which are key gene regulators in development of blood, brain and other tissues.
  A structural basis for the cross-talk between histones and RNA Polymerase II
  Prof R Stefl, Dr K Kubicek, Prof S Vanacova
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chromatin is a highly flexible architecture in which spatially and temporally coordinated changes between structurally condensed states (transcriptionally repressive), and structurally accessible states (transcriptionally active) regulate gene expression.
  Development of treatment for Osteoarthritis by blocking metalloproteinases
  Prof G Bou-Gharios
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

MMP13 (collagenase 3) plays a vital role in the pathogenesis of osteoarthritis (OA) because MMP13 preferentially cleaves type II collagen, the main component of cartilage, and both MMP13 levels and enzymatic activity are enhanced in OA.
  Tumor-promoting roles of the chromatin-associated DEK oncogene in metastatic melanoma
  Dr F Kappes, Prof C Eyers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The candidate should have a master’s degree (or equivalent qualification) in biochemistry, cell biology or a life-science related discipline.
  The role of phase separation in epigenetic inheritance by Polycomb Group proteins.
  Dr N Francis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In recent years, the role of phase separation in organizing macromolecules in cells is increasingly appreciated. This includes the organization of chromatin into physical and functional domains.
  Visualising chromatin replication with cryo-electron microscopy
  Dr A Costa
Application Deadline: 12 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 4-year PhD studentship is offered in Dr Alessandro Costa’s Group based at the Francis Crick Institute (the Crick). Eukaryotic chromosomes are packaged in nucleosome arrays that protect and regulate our genome.
  Deciphering a novel anti-ageing epigenetic programme
  Dr G Poulin, Prof A Sharrocks
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over two decades of intense research in the field of epigenetics have produced compelling evidence that chromatin modifications are crucial for processes such as DNA repair, transcription, splicing, mitosis, meiosis, and in the preservation of the epigenetic memory of cells.
