  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.
  Fungal RNA Biology
  Dr M Blango
Application Deadline: 25 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Leibniz Institute for Natural Product Research and Infection Biology – Hans Knöll Institute (Leibniz-HKI, www.leibniz-hki.de) investigates the pathobiology of human-pathogenic fungi and identifies targets for the development of novel natural product-based antibiotics.
  Roles of RNA-binding proteins in subcellular RNA localization and translation in neurons
  Dr M Chekulaeva
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The subcellular localization and translation of mRNAs are fundamental biological processes. They underlie establishment of body axis, cell growth, cell migration, and synaptic plasticity, which serves as a foundations of learning and memory.
  Regulation of mitochondrial gene expression (On the University’s application portal, please select "PhD in Medical Science at the MRC Mitochondrial Biology Unit").
  Dr M Minczuk
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

MRC Mitochondrial Biology Unit. The key objective of this PhD project is to study nuclear-encoded proteins involved in mitochondrial (mt-) RNA metabolism, in order to understand how their dysfunction is linked to human mitochondrial pathologies.
  RNA Methylation in normal and malignant blood development
  Dr L. Kats
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

As is the case with DNA and histones, RNA can also be modified and indeed more than 100 chemical groups that decorate all four canonical RNA nucleotides have been described.
  Population-wide predictive pharmacogenomics for targeted RNA-cleaving and genome editing therapeutics (GEdit-SEQ) (Ref: SF20/APP/MOSCHOS3)
  Dr S Moschos
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the last decade a sleuth of interventions based on gene therapy and oligonucleotide therapeutics have received regulatory approval, paving the way for the era of personalised and N-of-1 medicine.
  Promoter associated non-coding RNA (ncRNA) regulation of MUC5B expression in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (Ref: SF20/APP/MOSCHOS1)
  Dr S Moschos
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF) is an ageing-associated, debilitating lung disease that manifests mainly in men over 60 years of age.
  Precision Medicine DTP: Structural effects of cross-kingdom miRNA on regulation of RNA function in cancer
  Research Group: Edinburgh Cancer Research Centre
  Prof T Hupp, Dr A Rajan
Application Deadline: 1 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Scientific research in the 20th century has established that plant-derived dietary vitamins and minerals can have a positive impact on human health.
  Use of single molecule fluorescence and cryo-EM to study the regulation of RNA splicing
  Prof I C Eperon, Dr A Hudson
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.
  Defining a novel assembly pathway in ssRNA viruses using X-ray footprinting.
  Prof P G Stockley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project co-supervised by Prof. Peter Stockley at Leeds and Prof. Reidun Twarock at University of York, as part of the White Rose network "Structural and Mechanistic Biology at the RNA/Ligand Interface".
  The role of phase separation in RNA polymerase II transition from initiation to elongation
  Dr F Robert
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

High resolution mapping of elongating RNA polymerase II (RNAPII) in yeast using Native Elongating Transcript sequencing (NET-seq) revealed frequent pausing events in the 5’end of genes (Churchman and Weissman, 2011).
  Promoter associated non-coding RNA (paRNA; ncRNA) regulation of MUC5B expression in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) (Ref: SF20/APP/MOSCHOS2)
  Dr S Moschos
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF) is an ageing-associated, debilitating lung disease affecting mainly men over 60 years of age.
  Gene therapy of Huntington’s disease: can we restore cognitive function through RNA-based treatment and cholinergic neuromodulation?
  Dr M Tsanov
Application Deadline: 22 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The proposed project explores the gene therapy of Huntington’s disease. We will compare the patterns of motor and cognitive improvement in rodent models of Huntington’s disease exposed to RNA-based gene therapy.
  Role of aberrant RNA products in influenza-associated morbidity and mortality
  Dr AJ Te Velthuis
Application Deadline: 17 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Influenza viruses are an important economic and public health problem. Every year, seasonal influenza A viruses infect around 5-10% of the adult population and 20-30% of all children.
  Efficient algorithms for single cell RNA-seq
  Prof P Melsted
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The goal of this project is to work on algorithmic problems that arise in single cell RNA-seq processing using the kallisto and BUS framework (https://www.kallistobus.tools/).
