  Budding yeast as a model for sudden cardiac death
  Dr T Hoefken
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sudden unexpected cardiac death is responsible for about half of all heart disease deaths. It is an unexpected death caused by a change in heart rhythm.
  The production of alcohols as commodity chemicals/ biofuels using yeast as a vehicle
  Prof M Ashe, Prof C M Grant, Dr J-M Schwartz, Dr J Winterburn
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Crude oil represents probably the most important natural resource to industrial nations. As well as fuel, crude oil is used to produce a host of chemicals that govern modern day life.
  Dissecting and modelling of a cell fate decision in yeast
  Dr F van Werven
Application Deadline: 12 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 4-year PhD studentship is offered in Dr Folkert van Werven’s Group based at the Francis Crick Institute (the Crick). Alternative mRNA isoforms and long noncoding RNAs (lncRNA) and make up a large fraction of the transcriptome and play key functions in cell-fate programming.
  Engineering synthetic ribosomal RNAs (rRNAs) in yeast
  Prof P Cai, Prof D Delneri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Advances in DNA synthesis technology have led to rapid growth in the field of synthetic biology, heralding a nascent era of synthetic genomics.
  Production of Industrial Chemicals for Personal Care and Health Care Using Oleaginous Yeast
  Dr TS Wong
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many ingredients in the personal care and health care products, for example lipids, are derived from petroleum, animal fat or vegetable oil.
  A genome-wide view of posttranscriptional processes
  Dr J Mata
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A typical yeast cell contains around 40,000 molecules of messenger RNA (mRNA), whereas a typical mammalian cell more than 100,000.
  Structural and biochemical analysis of chromosome segregation in yeast
  Dr D Barford
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our research is focused on understanding the mechanisms and regulation of chromosome segregation in mitosis. During the cell cycle, accurate chromosome segregation ensures that both daughter cells inherit the correct complement of chromosomes.
  Engineering tRNA neochromosomes in yeast
  Prof P Cai, Prof D Delneri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Advances in DNA synthesis technology have led to rapid growth in the field of synthetic biology, heralding a nascent era of synthetic genomics.
  Defining the sequence requirements for neo-centromere function in the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe
  Dr W R A Brown, Dr W Wickstead
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Centromeres are the regions of the chromosome necessary for accurate segregation at cell division. They bind a complex set of proteins called the kinetochore which in turn tethers the chromosome to the microtubules of the spindle at cell division.
  The role mRNA-specific translation during chronological aging
  Prof C M Grant, Prof M Ashe, Prof S Hubbard
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biological ageing can be thought of as a progressive decline in the ability of an organism to survive stress and disease. It is a complex process which is influenced by both genetic and environmental factors.
