  Multicellular Cell Differentiation Model: The control of root hair patterning in Aspergillus thaliana
  Dr N Savage, Dr A Bishopp
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants absorb water and nutrients from the soil through hairs that grow along their roots. As such, being able to manipulate root hair numbers may be advantageous to the development of crops more resistant to drought and nutrient deficient soils.
  Root legume symbioses signalling (CHARPENTIERJ20DTP)
  Dr M Charpentier
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) are major macronutrients for plant productivity. They are essentials for all aspect of plant growth, and they help converting solar radiation into carbohydrates that drive crop yields.
  Do plants always have to behave that way? Understanding the evolution of root behaviour and its effects on fitness in flowering plants on Mount Etna, Sicily
  Dr J Bridle, Prof C S Grierson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A fundamental issue in biology is understanding how.
  Developing and testing models of human tooth shape using dental radiographs
  Prof H Liversidge, Prof F Wong
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Human teeth vary in shape. The dimensions and shape of teeth from dental radiographs has not been studied in detail. Knowledge of the variation in crown and root dimensions of the mature tooth helps to define abnormal teeth as well as abnormal tooth eruption.
  Molecular control of Eye development: investigating a novel gene network at the root of retinogenesis (GROCOTTU20DTP)
  Dr T Grocott, Prof A E Munsterberg
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The eye is our primary sense organ and a major conduit through which we experience the world around us. Congenital malformations that arise in the developing embryo can compromise vision, accounting for a quarter of all childhood blindness with life-long consequences.
  Antibiotic discovery in the wheat rhizosphere (HUTCHINGSU20DTP)
  Prof M Hutchings, Prof B Wilkinson
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is focussed on the interactions between common bread wheat Triticum aestivum, which provides fundamental nutrition to much of the world’s population, and antibiotic-producing Streptomyces bacteria.
  Resolving the limitations on plant growth and biomass
  Research Group: Centre for Plant Sciences
  Dr T.A. Bennett, Dr S Batterman
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

What limits primary productivity in plants remains a major question relevant across scales and biological systems. Agronomists and farmers have long sought the factors that support efficient accumulation of biomass in order to maximize crop production.
  Function of miRNAs in formation and regeneration of human hair follicles
  Dr S Kurinna, Dr S Herrick, Prof R Paus
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent advances in treating a severe skin condition with autologous transgenic keratinocyte cultures emphasises the importance of molecular mechanisms in selecting subpopulations of skin cells for cutaneous repair [1].
  Understanding the aetiology of diabetic neuropathy
  Dr N Gardiner, Dr R Unwin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Diabetic neuropathy is a common secondary complication of diabetes mellitus which affects around 50% of all patients with diabetes - impacting on health, wellbeing and quality of life.
  Developing novel bioactive restorative materials
  Dr J Camilleri, Dr M Milward, Prof PR Cooper
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This work will focus on gingival recession and the use of smart dental material in order to mitigate it. Gingival recession is prevalent in the adult population with studies suggesting that approximately 50% of the population has one or more recession defects this increases to 88% in over 65 year olds.
