  Do Altered host-microbial interactions promote oral inflammation during ageing?
  Dr J Konkel, Prof A McBain
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

As we age, the systems of our bodies become less able to function; rendering people increasingly infirm. Ageing affects our immune system, impeding our ability to both fight infection and maintain tolerance.
  (MRC DTP) The oral microbiome, microbial metabolites and their impact upon local and systemic immunity
  Dr A McBain, Dr J Konkel
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Commensal microbes and the host immune system have formed an evolutionary partnership that is vital for the development, metabolism and defensive immunity of the host.
  Predicting the development of oral cancer
  Dr C Darido
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human head and neck cancer is a devastating disease with poor survival rates.
  Understanding factors that influence behaviour change talk in routine dental care to prevent oral health problems in young children
  Dr S Peters, Dr J Goldthorpe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Dental decay is a preventable disease that impacts significantly on children’s development and wellbeing. Tooth extraction due to decayed teeth is the number one reason for hospital admission in young children and in Greater Manchester, a 1/3 of children have dental decay by the time they start school.
  Modelling of Oral Neutrophil Epithelial interactions
  Dr E Hagi-Pavli
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background and Clinical Significance. Neutrophils are an important and vital cellular component of the innate immune system providing rapid protection against microbial invasion.
  PhD in Chemical Biology -- Neuropeptide Research -- University of Vienna
  Prof M Muttenthaler
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neuropeptides are key mediators in many biological functions and understanding their interaction with target proteins is fundamental to unravel the underlying mechanism of diseases.
  Inhibitors of cilia and Hedgehog signaling: from phenotype to mechanistic understanding
  Prof S Hoogendoorn
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Hedgehog (Hh) signaling pathway is a major contributor to embryonic development, and tissue homeostasis and stem cell maintenance in children and adults.
  The role of modified microRNAs in fibrosis during ageing
  Dr K Whysall, Prof G Bou-Gharios
Application Deadline: 22 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small, non-coding RNAs that regulate the expression of multiple mRNAs posttranscriptionally (Brown & Goljanek-Whysall, Aging Res Rev 2015).
  Using multi-omics to understand autoimmune diseases
  Dr J Peters
Application Deadline: 8 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project description. We invite applications for a Department of Immunology and Inflammation-funded PhD studentship in the research group of Dr James Peters in the Centre for Inflammatory Disease.
  Engineering nanomaterials for intracellular delivery in regenerative medicine.
  Dr C Chiappini, Prof F Dazzi
Application Deadline: 11 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This position is to conduct an ERC-funded research project. This exciting project aims to investigate the mechanisms activated by the interaction of cells with nanomaterials and leverage them to control the intracellular fate of the cargo.
