  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.
  Pre-clinical study of novel treatment targets for chronic kidney disease, Biological & Medical Sciences – PhD
  Dr M Koeners
Applications accepted all year round
The University of Exeter’s Medical School is inviting applications for an unfunded PhD position to commence in September 2018 or as soon as possible thereafter.
  PhD in Immunology - Understanding the role of group 2 innate lymphoid cells in the pathogenesis of kidney stones
  Dr M Starkey
Applications accepted all year round
Supervisors. Dr Malcolm Starkey (PhD), Dr Aniruddh Deshpande (MBBS, PhD), Dr Simon Jiang (MBBS, PhD) and Prof. Phil Hansbro (PhD).
  Enhancer and Super-Enhancer Dynamics in Kidney Injury and Repair
  Dr J Wilflingseder
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The project focuses on enhancer and super-enhancer regulation in kidney disease. The overall. aim is to understand the transcriptional regulation of kidney specific programs in normal.
