  Deciphering the role of the tumour suppressor Hippo pro-apoptotic network in cancer
  Dr D Gomez
Application Deadline: 22 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

At SBI we believe that studying the dynamic control of cell-signalling is key for understanding many diseases, including cancer.
  Integration of environmental signals in plants
  Prof G Bassel, Dr M Gifford
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants use a diversity of signals from the environment to make decisions during their life cycle. This project will focus on understanding how multiple signals from the environment are integrated to control seed dormancy.
  Investigation of a probiotic strain of Lactobacillus plantarum 2025 and the development of novel antibacterials
  Prof A Karlyshev
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The rise of multidrug resistant forms of microbial pathogens imposes a serious problem to public health worldwide. The rapid spread of antimicrobial resistance is associated with misuse of conventional antibiotics.
  Detection in cells of protein interactions on pre-mRNA during the regulation of splicing
  Prof I C Eperon, Dr S Cowley
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the biggest challenges in molecular biology is presented by the selection of sites for RNA splicing. We cannot overstate its importance or apparent complexity.
  PhD position (m/f/d) on Translational Readthrough
  Dr S Thoms
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Department of Child and Adolescent Health at the University Medical Center Göttingen invites applications for a. PhD position (m/f/d) on Translational readthrough.
  Developing optogenetic therapies for retinal degeneration
  Prof R Lucas, Dr Nina Milosavljevic
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Retinal degeneration is the leading cause of blindness in developed countries. The new exciting biological approach of optogenetic therapy in which ectopic expression of photosensitive proteins (photopigments) is used to restore photosensitivity, offers a potential breakthrough for treating these conditions.
  Exploring the transcriptomic and chromatin landscapes of fibroblast-like synoviocytes in rheumatoid arthritis
  Dr S Eyre, Mr P Martin, Dr AM Morris
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Genetic studies in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) have been successful in identifying regions of the genome which contribute to disease risk, but it is often unclear which genes they effect.
  Using synthetic biology to understand the evolution of antibiotic resistance
  Dr M Lagator, Dr C Knight
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Imagine an architect, tasked with converting an old stadium into a building with a different function, without demolishing it.
  Molecular Pathology of Glaucoma
  Prof C Willoughby
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) is a leading cause of blindness worldwide affecting over 64 million people. Glaucoma is a complex multifactorial ocular disease with significant health and socio-economic impact.
  Control and inhibition of virus replication
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Dr A.K Tuplin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type


The Tuplin laboratory utilises a range of cutting-edge approaches to investigate how arboviruses - specificaly Chikungunya, Dengue and Zika viruses - control replication and translation of their genomes through interactions between RNA structures, host cell proteins and non-coding RNA, and the potential of such RNA elements/interactions as novel therapeutic targets.
  Mapping the three dimensional structure of RNA
  Prof M Wills
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We aim to combine organic synthetic chemistry, molecular biology, virology and computational biology tools to elucidate the 3D structure determinants behind RNA viruses such as dengue virus and coronaviruses.
  Gene regulation in cancer metastasis
  Dr F Wardle
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD studentship is available to work in the laboratory of Dr. Fiona Wardle (www.kcl.ac.uk/research/profile/wardle-group) in the Randall Centre for Cell and Molecular Biophysics, King’s College London.
