  (A*STAR) Elucidation of molecular footprints of kidney fibrosis through integrative ‘omics’-based analysis
  Prof M Tomaszewski, Dr A Adamson, Prof A Woolf
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The fibrosis is a common pathway of structural damage in many kidney diseases. It is usually diagnosed when patients present with an irreversible drop in glomerular filtration rate.
  PhD Studentship in Renal Transplantation - investigating the cellular and molecular processes involved in kidney damage and repair
  Prof M Nicholson
Application Deadline: 11 February 2019
Applications are invited for a three-year PhD studentship based in the University of Cambridge, Department of Surgery and funded by Kidney Research UK.
  Pre-clinical testing of new therapeutic treatments for cystic kidney disease
  Dr S Bell, Prof C A Johnson
Applications accepted all year round
The primary cilium on the ventral surface of most vertebrate cells acts as an “antennae” that receives and transduces chemo- and mechanosensory signals.
  Lifestyle management and interventions for patients with chronic kidney disease or a kidney transplant
  Prof A Smith
Applications accepted all year round
The Kidney Lifestyle research team run a broad translational research programme building the evidence base for lifestyle management in chronic kidney disease and developing and testing lifestyle interventions for implementation in primary and secondary care.
  Genetic mechanisms of chronic kidney disease
  Prof M Tomaszewski, Prof A Woolf
Applications accepted all year round
Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is one of the most common complex disorders. The prevalence of CKD is on the rise in all populations around the globe and both the clinical and economic pressures of CKD on the healthcare systems increase exponentially.
  Quantification of novel MR imaging biomarkers in Kidney Disease.
  Dr S Francis, Prof M Taal, Dr N Selby
Application Deadline: 25 February 2019
This PhD studentship will run in conjunction with a MRC-funded Partnership research project UKRIN-MAPS (UKRIN MRI Acquisition and Processing Standardisation https://www.nottingham.ac.uk/research/groups/spmic/research/uk-renal-imaging-network/ukrin-maps.aspx).
  Development of novel models of kidney damage using induced human pluripotent stem cells
  Research Group: Centre for Experimental Medicine
  Dr D Brazil, Dr A Margariti
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
A 3-year PhD studentship is available with Dr. Derek Brazil and Dr. Andriana Margariti at the Wellcome Wolfson Institute for Experimental Medicine (WWIEM) at Queen’s University Belfast.
  PhD in Immunology - Investigation of the role of TLR endogenous ligands in the increased risk of cardiovascular disease patients with chronic kidney disease
  Dr A Raby
Application Deadline: 1 February 2019
This PhD project aims at investigating the inflammatory mechanisms behind the increased risk of cardiovascular disease in patients suffering from kidney disease.
  Academic Endocrine Unit: investigating the molecular basis of endocrine and metabolic disorders that principally affect calcium and phosphate homeostasis.
  Prof R Thakker, Dr K Lines, Dr M Stevenson, Dr K Kooblall
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
Other Potential Supervisors. Dr Asha Bayliss. The Academic Endocrine Unit investigates the molecular basis of endocrine and metabolic disorders that principally affect calcium and phosphate homeostasis.
  Using state-of-the-art proteomics to study the cellular and extracellular protein composition in human kidney disease; identification of novel biomarkers and bioactive drug targets in IgA Nephropathy
  Dr A Didangelos, Prof J Barratt
Applications accepted all year round
One of the key pathological characteristics of IgA nephropathy (IgAN) is the maladaptive and chronic accumulation and remodelling of the extracellular matrix (ECM) in affected glomeruli leading to fibrosis and progressive loss of function.
