  Evolution of vertebrate blood vessels
  Dr T Takahashi, Dr S Herbert
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The blood vessels are the core elements of the circulatory system of animals, and their malfunction is related to most human diseases including cancer and heart attacks.
  Interneuron Development in the Zebrafish Spinal Cord
  Dr K Lewis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Lewis Lab moved to Syracuse University from Cambridge University in the UK in 2010.

  Investigation of a completely uncharacterised, embryonically lethal gene in immune cell development
  Dr J James, Prof K Sampath
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The development of vertebrate animals from a single fertilised cell to the fully formed adult is an astonishingly well-choreographed sequence of events, which is made more remarkable by being so faithfully recapitulated on each attempt.
  Understanding resistance and tolerance to chytrid fungal disease in amphibians to improve conservation
  Dr L Grogan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project will involve working with captive animals (Australian barred frogs and tadpoles, including the endangered Fleay’s barred frog) to understand host responses to infection and mechanisms of resistance and tolerance to the devastating fungal disease, frog chytridiomycosis.
  Gene regulation in cancer metastasis
  Dr F Wardle
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD studentship is available to work in the laboratory of Dr. Fiona Wardle (www.kcl.ac.uk/research/profile/wardle-group) in the Randall Centre for Cell and Molecular Biophysics, King’s College London.
  Role of telomere attrition in cardiometabolic disease risk
  Dr J Buxton, Dr N Hill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Common conditions such as Type 2 diabetes (T2D) and coronary artery disease (CAD) are complex disorders caused by a myriad of interacting genetic and lifestyle factors.
  MSc by Research Programme: Does CDK1 regulate NICD turnover in a cell cycle dependant manner in Drosophila Melanogaster?
  Prof J K Dale, Dr J Januschke
Application Deadline: 16 July 2020

Funding Type

This course allows you to work alongside our world renowned experts from the School of Life Sciences and gain a ’real research’ experience.
  MSc by Research Programme: Does increasing stability of Notch affect formation of the segmented body axis?
  Prof J K Dale
Application Deadline: 16 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This course allows you to work alongside our world renowned experts from the School of Life Sciences and gain a ’real research’ experience.
  Neuromuscular junction development and disease
  Dr C Lee
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Synapses are specialized cell membrane domains that facilitate neuronal communication in the intricate nervous system. These synaptic specializations develop in response to molecular interactions between pre- and postsynaptic cells.
  Assessing changes in wrist biomechanics during ageing and optimal design of total wrist arthroplasty and assistive rehabilitation devices
  Dr KT Bates, Dr S Fichera, Dr B Geraghty
Application Deadline: 15 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Training. The University of Liverpool has set up a Doctoral Training Network in Technologies for Healthy Ageing to train the next generation of physical scientists and engineers to develop novel technologies and devices to address the challenges faced by older people and our clinical colleagues who work with them.
  Understanding extinction risk in the Anthropocene
  Dr M Gonzalez-Suarez
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We live in a humanized world in which even the most remote areas have been affected by the actions of our species. Human impacts have caused a widespread loss of biodiversity, to the point that we have likely entered the sixth mass extinction event on Earth, the first primarily caused by humans.
  Identifying mechanisms regulating collective migration of embryonic progenitor cells
  Dr M Smutny, Prof M Balasubramanian, Dr D Köster
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Collective cell migration plays a fundamental role during development in the embryo and wound healing in adults, and is also a hallmark of invasive cancer cells [1].
  Mechanical and biochemical regulation of macrophage migration by TNF receptors
  Assoc Prof A Ratheesh, Dr J James
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ability of cells to cross tissue barriers is a crucial parameter governing several physiological and pathological events. Vertebrate immune cells cross blood vessels in order to reach sites of infection (1).
