  Combining molecular genetics and biochemistry to explore the biology of chromosomal DNA replication in the Archaea
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr S MacNeill
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Archaea constitute the third domain of life on Earth, comprise an estimated 20% of the planet’s biomass and make a major impact on both biosphere and atmosphere.
  Molecular Genetics of Durable Disease Resistance in Wheat
  Prof S Krattinger
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  A New Molecular Machine Required for Bacterial Development into Spores
  Dr C Rodrigues
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  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.
  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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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].
  Elucidating infection at the plant-microbe interphase on a cellular, molecular and structural level to improve crop resistance and support food security
  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.
  Natural selection in action: molecular evolution of resistance to anti-microbials (BROWNJ20DTP)
  Prof J Brown
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Evolution of resistance to drugs and pesticides is a problem of great practical importance and is also one of the clearest demonstrations of natural selection in action.
  MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT: Developing Drosophila as a model to study the molecular and behavioural changes underlying Parkinson’s disease
  Dr J Hodge
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Start 23 September 2019. This MSc by Research is a laboratory-based project which offers the exciting opportunity to spend 1 year in one of our State-of-the-Art laboratories (plus 1 year thesis writing) at the University of Bristol and experience life as a researcher.
  PhD student (m/f/d) in Systems Biology of Epigenetic Regulation
  Dr E Schulz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics is an international research institute with approximately 350 employees, working in the field of genomics and gene regulation.
  Accelerating disease resistance breeding for diploid potato germplasm improvement (JONESS20CASE)
  Prof J Jones
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pests and diseases reduce crop yields, requiring agrichemical sprays. We aim to replace agrichemicals with genetic resistance for pest and disease control.
