  Monitoring bacterial metabolism using advanced metabolomics methods
  Dr D H Kim, Prof D A Barrett
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University of Nottingham seeks an enthusiastic PhD candidate to work on an exciting multi-disciplinary project that brings together the techniques of synthetic biology, analytical science and systems biology.
  Modelling the interface of metabolism, methylation and mitochondria in prostate cancer
  Prof A Lynch
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The interface of metabolism, methylation and mitochondria is of key importance for understanding the aetiology, biology and prognosis of prostate cancer[1].
  How does amino acid metabolism affect tumour growth?
  Dr L. Cheng
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The effect of diet on tumour growth is hotly debated but poorly characterized. Due to the heterogeneous nature of the tumours, dietary studies in patients with varied genetic background often led to inconclusive outcome.
  The function of mitochondrial uncoupling proteins in energy metabolism (CRICHTONU19FMH)
  Dr P Crichton, Dr S Rushworth
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is an exciting and timely opportunity to study the mitochondrial Uncoupling Proteins (UCPs), which are a group of membrane protein transporters that impact on cellular energy metabolism.
  Investigation of the chemo-protectant effect of Vitamin E throughout cellular fatty acid metabolism
  Dr N Rattray, Dr D Watson
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Global ageing and associated age-related disease is presently causing a substantial economic burden on health and social care costs.
  Oestrogen metabolism and metabolomics in pulmonary hypertension
  Prof M MacLean, Dr N Rattray
Application Deadline: 10 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH) is a disease that affects more women than men. The project will examine blood levels of oestrogen and its metabolites in PAH patients as well as conducting metabolomics screens, in vivo, in vitro and functional assays.
  Metabolic rewiring in liver cancer: Role of oxidative stress and the Nrf2 pathway
  Dr A. Cox
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many of the major risks factors for developing liver cancer such as alcohol, obesity, smoking and toxin exposure share in common a role for oxidative stress.
  Determining brain glycosylation in ageing and Alzheimer’s disease
  Research Group: Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics
  Dr R Williamson, Dr C Sutton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Increasing age is associated with lower levels of cognitive performance; concomitant with this is a decrease in brain glucose metabolism.
  Regulation of the In Vivo Response to Cardiac Hypoxia – The Role of FIH1
  Dr M Cole
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hypoxia-inducible factors (HIFs) are transcription factors present in all mammalian cells, and play a pivotal role in the molecular response to changes in oxygen availability.
  Iron and Immunity: studying how iron and anaemia influence immunity and infectious diseases
  Prof A Drakesmith, Dr S Draper
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

We study how iron and anaemia influence immunity and infectious diseases. Our research inspires therapies that control iron physiology to improve immunity, combat infections and treat disorders of iron metabolism.
