  Investigating the role of tauopathy-induced activating transcription factor 3: a transcriptional hub to modulate neurodegeneration.
  Research Group: Neurosciences
  Dr K Deinhardt, Prof V M O'Connor
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fully funded PhD position available to study the role of ATF3 in tau-mediated neurodegeneration. We have previously identified an upregulation of the transcription factor ATF3 in mouse models of neurodegeneration.
  Going across temporal scales: how are oscillatory dynamics of protein expression decoded in the bursty expression of downstream genes in neurogenesis?
  Prof N Papalopulu, Prof H Ashe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In recent years, our understanding of gene expression dynamics has been transformed by the application of single cell molecular and imaging technologies.
  Understanding the gene regulatory landscape of embryonic stem cells and cancer cells
  Prof A Sharrocks, Prof M Rattray
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cell identity is ultimately determined through decoding the genome through the action of gene regulatory mechanisms. In particular, sculpting of the chromatin landscape to reveal unique configurations of gene regulatory elements in each cell type is a major driver of cell identity.
  New ways of terminating transcription in bacterial pathogens
  Dr C Brown
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

An excellent PhD candidate (’A’ grades) interested in researching the fundamental process of gene expression in bacteria is being recruited to join a multidisciplinary team led at University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand.
  Characterization of cyclin-dependent kinases 12 and 11 (CDK12 and CDK11) in gene expression and tumorigenesis
  Dr D Blažek, Prof Z Zdrahal, Dr P Alexiou
Application Deadline: 20 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cdk12 is transcriptional cyclin-dependent kinase (Cdk) found mutated in various cancers. In previous studies we found that Cdk12 maintains genome stability via optimal transcription of key homologous recombination repair pathway genes including BRCA1.
  Investigating the role of RNaseH2B in the response to oncogene-induced replication stress
  Dr E Petermann, Dr T Stankovic
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a 4-year fully-funded PhD Studentship starting October 2020. Replication stress is an important source of genomic instability in cancer.
  The generation of RBCs in vitro from stem cell sources and the molecular regulation of erythropoiesis in health and disease
  Dr J Frayne
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Development of systems for the generation of red blood cells (RBCs) from stem cell sources (adult peripheral blood, cord blood and pluripotent stem cells)…
  Hypoxia links the unfolded proteim response with the DNA damage response
  Prof E Hammond, Prof A Giaccia
Application Deadline: 3 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

THE PROJECT. Regions of hypoxia (insufficient oxygen) occur in most if not all solid tumours and are clinically relevant as they correlate with poor patient prognosis and therapy resistance.
  Laboratory of Gene Regulation
  Prof D Higgs, Prof J Hughes, Dr R Gibbons, Dr V Buckle
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type
