  PhD Studentship: Crack behaviour in a residual stress field at fillet welds in ship structures
  Mr G Wu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Welding residual stresses are complex in fillet welds used to join longitudinal stiffened plate at the bottom of ship structures that are exposed to complex cyclic loads.
  Plant responses to stress, metabolites for health and fuel from cell walls.
  Prof A Devoto
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Projects are available in the following areas. Stress responses in crops and sustainable biomass production and processing. The project aims at elucidating several aspects of the control of plant defences and to identify environmentally friendly forms of plant protectants, leading to enhanced crop yields.
  Characterisation of cell death pathways upon activation of the endoplasmic reticulum stress sensor IRE1alpha
  Dr M Schroeder
Application Deadline: 20 December 2019

A competition-funded Durham Doctoral studentship to investigate cell death pathways activated by endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress is available in the group of Dr.
  Adaptation to oxidative stress in hepatitis C virus persistence: the role of IRES-dependent translation.
  Dr S-W Chan, Prof R Ford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) causes a clinically important disease affecting 3% of the world population (Chan 2014). About 75% of the infection will develop into chronic hepatitis, which can then progress into fibrosis, cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma.

Funding Type

PhD Type

Myotonic Dystrophy Type1 (DM1) is an incurable inherited multi-system disease that results in numerous symptoms including early cataract development, which can be the first sign of the disease.
  Epigenetic regulation of meiotic genes by the transcription factor Hac1i
  Dr M Schroeder
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

Defects in protein quality control lead to the accumulation of misfolded and damaged proteins, which play an important role in many diseases (e.g.
  Psychological, Physiological, and Behavioural Responses to Stress
  Dr S Williams
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

By its very nature, sport and physical activity can be very stressful. How an individual responds to these demands, and whether they appraise this stress as challenging or threatening can influence whether they excel or fall to pieces in such situations.
