  Develop/refine and exploit cutting edge molecular genetics tools for the identification of livestock helminths and the detection of anthelmintic resistance
  Dr D Bartley
Application Deadline: 8 April 2019
We are seeking applications from suitably experienced and highly motivated, individuals for this exciting 36 month project, funded by the Veterinary Medicines Directorate to develop/refine and exploit cutting edge molecular genetics tools for the identification of livestock helminths and the detection of anthelmintic resistance.
  Statistical and Molecular Genetics of Complex Traits
  Prof Z Luo
Applications accepted all year round
Most characters of any living organism are polygenically controlled and environmentally modified, including those threatening human health and those important in breeding for high yield, better quality and improved adaption of animals, plants and microbes.
  Molecular Genetics of Durable Disease Resistance in Wheat
  Prof S Krattinger
Applications accepted all year round
The identification of agriculturally important genes in wheat had long been limited by its large genome, which is five times larger than the human genome.
  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Molecular pathology data science studies of breast cancer
  Dr J Figueroa, Dr A Sims, Assoc Prof N Tobin
Application Deadline: 8 April 2019
BACKGROUND. Datasets linked to molecular phenotypes are desperately needed to provide academia and industry the real-world evidence needed for discovery, validation and implementation of new biomarkers for improved cancer outcomes.
  A New Molecular Machine Required for Bacterial Development into Spores
  Dr C Rodrigues
Applications accepted all year round
The Rodrigues Lab focuses on how bacteria develop into spores. Bacterial spores are one of the hardiest cell types on Earth and allow bacteria to persist in the environment when nutritional conditions are no longer favourable for growth.
  Genotype-to-structure: analysis of the glycosylation of the flagella of Campylobacter jejuni, a major cause of food-borne gastroenteritis
  Dr C D Bayliss, Prof J Ketley
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
Campylobacter jejuni is the major causative agent of foodborne gastroenteritis across Europe. Contaminated chicken meat is the main source of infections and hence control of this pathogen is critical to food security in the poultry industry.
  Understanding the development of Industrial Streptomyces strain lineages
  Dr P Hoskisson, Prof I Hunter
Application Deadline: 15 April 2019
Project Description. (Max 2000 characters including spaces). A studentship is offered to undertake exciting research for a PhD degree.
  Eukaryotic gene expression: understanding the role of UPF1 in global mRNA processing and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
  Dr S Brogna
Applications accepted all year round
This project’s specific objective is to study the molecular role(s) that the RNA helicase UPF1 plays in RNA processing. UPF1 is a key player in nonsense-mediated mRNA decay (NMD), it is universally conserved in eukaryotes and is essential to the development of many organisms [1].
  Molecular characterisation of novel pathways for cell envelope protein localisation in mycolic acid-producing actinomycetes (ref: SF18/APP/Sutcliffe)
  Prof I Sutcliffe
Applications accepted all year round
Mycolic acid-producing actinomycetes are of vital economic and medical importance. They include pathogenic species including Corynebacterium diphtheriae, Mycobacterium tuberculosis and Rhodococcus equi as well as industrially important organisms.
  Molecular mechanisms involved in the impact of air pollution on bacterial cells
  Dr J Morrissey, Prof J Ketley
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
Air pollution is the world’s largest single environmental health risk, being responsible for an eighth of all global deaths per year (World Health Organisation, 2014).
