  Multimerisation of ELAV/Hu proteins – a key mechanism ensuring specificity for RNA recognition in health and disease
  Dr M Soller, Dr T Knowles
Applications accepted all year round
Aims. Determine the structure of the ELAV dodecameric complex bound to target RNA by cryoEM and functionally probe interaction interfaces in vitro and in vivo in transgenic Drosophila models for neurodegeneration and cancer.
  Structural and Functional Characterisation of TRIM25-RNA Complex
  Research Group: Edinburgh Infectious Diseases
  Dr G Michlewski, Dr A Cook
Application Deadline: 1 February 2019
RNA viruses continue causing devastating epidemics and pandemics in the 21st century. For example, influenza A virus kills 250,000 to 500,000 people annually and generates huge socioeconomic burden.
  Understanding the biogenesis, dynamics and function of different classes of RNAs and RNPs in both yeast and human cells.
  Dr M Bohnsack
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
The University Medical Center Göttingen is a tertiary care center and offers great development potential. Its 7,700 employees work in over 65 departments and facilities to provide top-quality patient care, excellent research and modern teaching.
  Defining the role of RNA metabolic processes in colorectal cancer development
  Research Group: Edinburgh Cancer Research Centre
  Dr K Myant
Application Deadline: 15 February 2019
This is one of several projects available on a CRUK funded PhD programme at the Cancer Research UK Edinburgh Centre, which is part of the Institute of Genetics and Molecular Medicine (IGMM) at the University of Edinburgh.
  Roles of RNA-binding proteins in subcellular RNA localization and translation in neurons
  Dr M Chekulaeva
Applications accepted all year round
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 2019
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.
  Cancer Research UK funded 4 year studentship: RNA Pol II subunits in the regulation of transcription and genome instability
  Dr M Saponaro, Dr A Gambus
Application Deadline: 15 February 2019
Applications are invited for a non-clinical PhD studentship at the Cancer Research UK (CRUK) Birmingham Centre.
  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].
  Insights into Transcription/Translation in Prostate Cancer through analyses of novel data sets
  Prof A Lynch
Applications accepted all year round
Approximately one in eight men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer (PCa) in his life, while a substantially higher proportion of men would show evidence of PCa under histopathological examination.
  Genetic Dark Matter? Functional characterization of a non-coding RNA regulation of microbial metabolism of climate active trace gases.
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr Y Chen, Dr H Schaefer
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Project Highlights. Climate change meets microbiology. Unique opportunity to study a ‘junk’ RNA. World-leading supervisory team on climate-change microbiology.
