  The importance of sensory acuity and sensory thresholds in human postural control
  Dr G Blenkinsop
Applications accepted all year round
The control of movement and posture requires the detection of the environment through various sensory receptors throughout the body.
  Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry and A*STAR PhD Studentship: 3D printing the human hair follicle
  Prof M Philpott
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry at Queen Mary University of London and A*STAR PhD Studentship. 3D printing the human hair follicle.
  Clinical Genetics: De Novo Mutations, Selfish Selection, Mosaicism and Human Disease - developing methods for identification of new genes/molecular pathways subject to selfish selection within the human testis
  Prof A Goriely, Prof A Wilkie
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
De novo mutations (DNMs) are a significant contributor to human disease, affecting ~1:300 new births. We study the mechanisms by which these spontaneous mutations arise in the first instance, concentrating on the tissue where most of them originate, the human testis.
  Regulation of autophagy in human embryonic stem cells and its therapeutic application in induced pluripotent stem cell-based disease models
  Dr S Sarkar
Applications accepted all year round
Project background. Regulation of proteostasis is critical for maintaining tissue homeostasis. Autophagy, a major intracellular degradation pathway essential for cellular and energy homeostasis, functions in the clearance of aggregation-prone proteins and damaged organelles.
  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.
  Myocardial biology with a specific focus on the mechanisms underlying cardiac fibrosis and atrial fibrillation
  Dr S Reilly, Assoc Prof M Lei
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
Using a combination of extensive cell culture and molecular biology techniques, and functional cellular assays to understand molecular mechanisms underlying myocardial structural and electrical remodelling associated with atrial fibrillation.
  Mechanisms of microtubule organization by cell-cell adhesion in epithelial cells.
  Dr N Bulgakova
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
The correct organization of the microtubule cytoskeleton is critical for the survival and normal function of cells in a multicellular organism.
  Dog-Human Cooperation – A Comparative Approach
  Prof S Schweinberger
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Cooperation, defined as a behaviour that is beneficial to another individual or to several individuals involved in a task, is characteristic for humans, but also for domestic dogs.
  Human fat distribution and metabolic disease: Identifying the mechanistic basis for site-specific fat storage to identify new ways of tackling the metabolic consequences of obesity.
  Prof F Karpe, Dr M Neville, Dr M Todorcevic, Dr K Pinnick
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
Identifying the mechanistic basis for site-specific fat storage to identify new ways of tackling the metabolic consequences of obesity.
  PhD Studentship – Development of New Reagents for Protein Chemistry
  Dr M Baud
Applications accepted all year round
A PhD position is available to start in October 2019 for an outstanding candidate to work under the supervision of Dr Matthias Baud in the School of Chemistry at the University of Southampton.
