  Etiology, assessment and treatment of scoliosis
  Prof K Cheung
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Scoliosis is an abnormal curvature of the spine that can be present in 3-4% of the population. If left untreated, some can progress to lead to back pain, shortness of breath and severe deformities.
  Transferability of genetic risk scores for complex human diseases across diverse population groups
  Dr AM Morris, Dr J Bowes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have been extremely successful in identifying DNA variants that are associated with a wide range of complex human traits and common diseases.
  PhD position in Statistical Genomics/Genetic Epidemiology
  Dr B St Pourcain
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

(Starting salary. € 32,813 p.a.). 4-years full time. Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics, Nijmegen, the Netherlands. Language & Genetics Department.
  Molecular mechanisms regulating the developmental plasticity of pancreatic cancer cells #NDORMS-2020/6
  Dr S Pauklin
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pancreatic cancers are among the most lethal malignancies in human due to highly metastatic characteristics and the poor responsiveness to currently used cancer therapeutics.
  Understanding the functional role of the non-coding genome in cardiovascular disease
  Prof N Bobola, Prof N Hanley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death worldwide. Inherited DNA sequence variants contribute to human diseases and susceptibility.
  Expanded potential stem cells for regenerative medicine, immunotherapy, and biotechnology
  Prof P Lui
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Embryonic stem cells (ES cells) and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS cells) are pluripotent and thus hold great promise in regenerative medicine, studying disease mechanisms and drug discovery.
  GW4 BioMed MRC DTP PhD studentship: Using computational simulation and machine learning to understand bacterial phenotypes of public health importance
  Dr L A Cowley
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the ‘GW4 BioMed MRC Doctoral Training Partnership’ which is offering up to 18 studentships for entry in September 2020.
  Investigating modes of action of genetic risk variants through integrated analysis of multiple high-dimensional “omics” data.
  Research Group: Division of Statistics
  Prof A Lynch, Dr M Papathomas
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Genome-wide association studies have identified thousands of genomic loci that are associated with higher risk of a trait (often a disease such as breast cancer).
  Developing and applying computational methods to understand the genetics of ageing
  Dr JP de Magalhaes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
