We have 24 yeast PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

Identification of phosphatases that inactivate the endoplasmic reticulum stress sensor Ire1

A self-funded PhD studentship is available in the group of Dr. Martin Schröder in the Department of Biosciences at Durham University to study stress signalling mechanisms originating from the endoplasmic reticulum. Read more

Understanding the molecular basis for mitophagic selectivity in yeast

A Rehovot-based lab (Hebrew University- Rehovot campus) is seeking outstanding Ph.D. candidates for an exciting molecular biology project involving proteomic and advanced microscopy analyses of autophagic protein degradation networks. Read more

Investigating the role of SUMOylation in meiotic recombination and chromosome segregation in Arabidopsis

Post-translational modifications of proteins such as phosphorylation, methylation and acetylation have been extensively studied in eukaryotes and now the Small Ubiquitin modifier (SUMO) is gaining attention for its importance in fundamental biological roles. Read more

Chaperones and the response to protein misfolding stress

Misfolded proteins are usually refolded to their functional conformations or degraded by quality control mechanisms. When misfolded proteins evade quality control, they form aggregates that are sequestered to specific sites within cells. Read more

Biodesigning the future of scent experience using microbial organisms

Based at Central Saint Martins, UAL, in collaboration with Haeckels. Project overview. Working with microbial organisms such as bacterial, algae, fungi and yeasts, this project aims to explore how scents of the future can be produced, designed and experienced. Read more

Obtaining insights into how a signalling hub protein Ras activates multiple effectors

The RAS family of small GTPases act as signalling hubs regulating cell proliferation and differentiation. They are highly conserved from yeast to humans, highlighting their fundamental biological roles. Read more

Epigenetic ageing and calorie restriction in an insect model system

This project will help establish an insect model for epigenetic ageing, by analysing the effects of calorie restriction on chronological and epigenetic aging in an important insect model, Nasonia vitripennis, extending our discovery of an epigenetic clock in Nasonia. . Read more

Assessment of phototherapy with model organism Saccharomyces cerevisiae

Project Overview.  . Saccharomyces cerevisiae is extensively used as model organism and is well understood from a sequencing perspective so up-regulation or down-regulation of gene expression is tractable. Read more

Mitigating the impact of environmental stress on the quality and sustainability of malting barley

Climate change is challenging our ability to reliably grow crops. This PhD will be focused on the impact this is having on our capacity to produce a sustainable supply of malted barley for use within the brewing and distilling industries. Read more

Targeting Ras palmitoylation for the treatment of cancer

Lay summary. Proteins can be thought of as molecular machines that carry out work within cells. Protein activity can be regulated through the reversible attachment of certain chemical groups to specific amino acids within proteins. Read more

Development of a personalized therapy for pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH)

  Research Group: Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics
Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a devastating cardiovascular disorder which, if left untreated, leads to heart failure and death. Read more

Cellular mechanisms of equal chromosome segregation and genome stability

The PhD project will investigate how chromosomes segregate equally in each cell division through epigenetic regulation of the centromere, and how cells respond in stress conditions to maintain genome instability. Read more

MSc by Research: Degrade or die: Understanding proteasome regulation upon stress

The Rousseau lab is interested in decoding how protein degradation by the proteasome is regulated in cells so that accumulation of unfolded, misfolded, or damaged proteins can be cleared before they become deleterious. Read more
