  Obtaining mechanistic insights into interplay of multiple RAS effectors in a model system
  Dr K Tanaka, Dr C Dominguez
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
The RAS family of small GTPases act as signalling hubs regulating cell proliferation and differentiation. Importantly, about 20% of all human cancers harbour mutations in RAS genes (COSMIC).
  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
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.
  Induction of yeast prions by oxidative stress
  Prof C M Grant, Prof M Ashe
Applications accepted all year round
Prions are novel protein-only infectious agents associated with a group of transmissible neurodegenerative diseases typified by human Creutzfeldt Jakob Disease (CJD).
  Production of Industrial Chemicals for Personal Care and Health Care Using Oleaginous Yeast
  Dr TS Wong, Dr K Tee
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Many ingredients in the personal care and health care products, for example lipids, are derived from petroleum, animal fat or vegetable oil.
  Investigating Organelle movement and inheritance by using a combination of yeast genetics, cell and molecular biology and live cell imaging
  Dr E Hettema
Applications accepted all year round
With every cell division cycle, organelles duplicate and are segregated between progeny cells. Cells have evolved organized ways of organelle segregation.
  Exploring the importance of fungal-specific aspects of RNase MRP in ribosome production
  Dr C Schneider
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Fungal contamination leading to reduced harvest and post-harvest food spoilage accounts for the loss of 10- 20% of food production worldwide.
  Regulation of ribosome modification as a means to enhance anti-fungal antibiotic efficacy
  Dr N Watkins
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
10-20% of worldwide food, from reduced harvest and post-harvest food spoilage, is lost due to fungal contamination. Food loss is due to contamination with mycotoxins such as aflatoxins, which are potent carcinogens and cause severe liver damage.
  Re-engineering the spindle checkpoint response in fission yeastr
  Research Group: Institute of Cell Biology
  Prof K Hardwick
Application Deadline: 13 December 2018
Background. We study mitosis and chromosome segregation in yeast, with a particular focus on the spindle checkpoint.
  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
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.
  Genetics of quantitative traits through a multi-omic approach
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Prof Z Luo
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Most characters of any living organism are polygenically controlled and environmentally modified, including those threatening human health and those important in breeding for high yield, better quality and improved adaption of animals, plants and microbes.
