  Climate change, risk and migration in Global North and Global South: A comparison study
  Dr T Guma, Dr K Sharapov
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will explore the migration-climate nexus from a comparative perspective.
  Microtubule motors in cell migration and integrin trafficking
  Prof V Allan, Prof P Woodman, Dr P Caswell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cell migration is vital for the development and health of multicellular organisms. However, enhanced cell migration is also a hallmark of cancer cells, and contributes greatly to metastasis.
  Understanding microtubule-actin crosstalk in neuronal cell migration
  Prof A M Fry, Prof I D Forsythe
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Summary. This BBSRC-funded 4-year PhD studentship will address the mechanism of action of a microtubule-associated protein, EML4, in promoting microtubule-actin crosstalk and neuronal cell migration [1].
  Mechanical and biochemical regulation of macrophage migration by TNF receptors
  Assoc Prof A Ratheesh, Dr J James
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ability of cells to cross tissue barriers is a crucial parameter governing several physiological and pathological events. Vertebrate immune cells cross blood vessels in order to reach sites of infection (1).
  The impact of transcultural migration on body image and disordered eating
  Research Group: Centre for Societies and Groups
  Prof V Swami
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. Centre for Societies and Groups https://aru.ac.uk/science-and-engineering/research/institutes-and-groups/aru-centre-for-societies-and-groups.
  Understanding molecular processes that control cell adhesion and migration
  Dr I Barsukov, Dr T Zech
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cells have an amazing ability to form complex tissues, differentiate and migrate. All these processes are controlled by a network of proteins that constantly change their activity and interactions in response to the environment.
  Identifying mechanisms regulating collective migration of embryonic progenitor cells
  Dr M Smutny, Prof M Balasubramanian, Dr D Köster
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Collective cell migration plays a fundamental role during development in the embryo and wound healing in adults, and is also a hallmark of invasive cancer cells [1].
  Unraveling the signal regulation network of cell adhesion, migration, and invasion in podosomes and invadopodia
  Dr C Yu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Integrin-mediated adhesions, such as podosomes and invadopodia, are the biophysical anchor to sense and to translate mechanobiological signals into various cellular events.
  Role of lipids in regulating in vivo chemotaxis
  Dr A Renault
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Aberrant cell migration is a critical factor in the progression of many diseases including cancer and atherosclerosis.
  Investigating the role of the protease ADAMTS5 in ovarian cancer
  Dr E Rainero
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ovarian cancer is the most lethal gynaecological malignancy. Mostly because of late stage diagnosis, the 5-year survival rate is.
  Investigate a novel, unexplored link between WNT signalling and regulators of cell migration in cancer progression using CRISPR-Cas9 and advanced live cell imaging.
  Research Group: Randall Division of Cell and Molecular Biophysics
  Dr M Krause, Dr K Liu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer is a devastating disease. more than one in three people in the UK will develop cancer in their lifetime. WNT signalling is a key pathway controlling morphogenesis in embryos and it has been shown that perturbations of this pathway promote cancer progression.
  From fines migration to filter cake formation and back again: state-of-the-art in situ observation to understand pore scale processes
  Dr K Dobson
Application Deadline: 1 October 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will use the latest 4D (3D + time) imaging methods to capture the porosity networks within the geological samples, and then track flow, and the transport of the suspended fine particles through that pore network.
  PhD student for the research project DATA4ALL at the Faculty of Law

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Faculty of Law, University of Copenhagen, is seeking applications for a position as PhD. The position is part of the research project “DATA4ALL” and is available from 1 September 2020, for a duration of 36 months.
  VC International Scholarship in Social Sciences - Migration and non-monetary chronic poverty in Low and Middle Income Countries (January 2021)
  Dr S Nandy, Dr M Pomati
Application Deadline: 1 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chronic poverty – that is prolonged exposure to the conditions associated with or caused by insufficient resources to attain a minimally acceptable standard of living – is a major global challenge, affecting the lives of hundreds of millions around the world.
  The Missing Sink? Controls on Iodine Migration in the Geosphere
  Prof F Livens, Prof J Lloyd, Prof K Morris
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

129I (t1/2 1.57 x 106 years) is a high yield fission product which has a complex and poorly understood biogeochemistry in the Earth’s subsurface.
