  Understanding cellulose synthesis in plants
  Prof S Turner, Prof S High
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

It is clear that there is now enormous pressure to develop much better replacements for plastics derived from fossil fuels. One possibility is to develop novel plastics based on polymers from plants.
  Determining the importance of lipid remodelling in the rhizosphere bacteria
  Dr Y Chen
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Maintaining an adequate food supply for a growing population in the face of emerging global crises presents one of the great challenging of the 21st Century.
  Viral re-wiring of cyanobacterial photosynthesis
  Prof D J Scanlan, Dr A Millard, Dr R Puxty
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Oxygenic photosynthesis is a fundamental biological activity. As well as oxygenating the atmosphere, it is also the basis of all food chains and global carbon cycling via the direct fixation of carbon dioxide (CO2) into organic matter.
  Genetic analysis of the bacterial translocation machinery
  Dr D Huber
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Every subcellular compartment in a cell contains proteins, and yet all of these proteins are initially synthesised in the same compartment.
  PhD in cellular and structural biology - Elucidating infection at the plant-microbe interphase to define targets for crop breeding
  Dr C Voigt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Achieving food security is one of the most important global challenges. Crop production and yield has been increasingly threatened by plant pathogens in a rapidly changing environment.
  PhD in Evolution and Behaviour: exploring the connection between how organisms have evolved and how they behave
  Dr C Voigt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The connection between how organisms have evolved and how they behave is a fundamental principle of biology. It can show us why organisms are the way they are, and answer deep questions about the diversity of life on earth.
  PhD in Plants and Microbes: crop production and protection, the interaction between plants and other plants, pests and pathogens, and soils, and the interactions of ecosystems with global change
  Dr C Voigt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants underpin life on Earth. In Sheffield, world leading plant research is undertaken across all scales from the molecular level through to the leaf and root, whole plant and ecosystem.
  Environmentally induced epigenetic effects in a fish
  Dr P J Watt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Animals may be exposed to a wide range of environmental stimuli over the course of their development, some of which may be harmful, such as pollutants, and these may subsequently affect their behaviour and/or physiology and that of their offspring.
  Elucidating and exploiting molecular mechanisms of bacterial antibiotic biosynthesis
  Prof G Challis, Dr L Alkhalaf
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antibiotics are an essential part of modern medicine, but antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is rapidly neutralising their effectiveness.
  Molecular characterisation of novel virulence genes and vaccine candidates in pathogenic Corynebacterium diphtheria (Ref: SF20/APP/SANGAL)
  Dr V Sangal
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Corynebacterium diphtheriae is a prominent human pathogen that causes diphtheria, a toxin mediated disease of upper respiratory tract, resulting in significant mortality and morbidity in humans.
  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.
  The Hippo pathway and Yap1 in vascular growth control in development and disease
  Prof B Hogan, Dr A. Cox
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lymphatic vessels play roles in the drainage of tissue fluid, trafficking of immune cells and the metastatic spread of cancer.
  Molecular and genetic mechanisms of brain structural plasticity and neurodegeneration in the fruit-fly Drosophila.
  Dr A Hidalgo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The brain changes throughout life. brain plasticity enables the brain to adjust in response to experience, whereas during aging natural neurodegeneration takes over.
  Investigating the mechanisms driving meiotic gene re-expression in cancer
  Dr U McClurg, Dr W Wei Tee
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Meiosis is a specialised type of cell division which involves genome rearrangements. Many of the genes involved in meiotic homologous recombination are meiosis-specific however, they also constitute a latent toolbox of chromosome remodelling and recombination factors, which can be exploited by cancer cells.
  Identifying pharmacological targets for osteoporosis intervention using whole-genome and exome sequencing of bone related phenotypes
  Dr J Kemp
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Osteoporosis (OP) is an often asymptomatic multi-factorial condition that is characterized by a progressive loss of bone mass resulting in increased fracture (FX) risk and reduced lifespan(1).
