PhD Type

Current industrial bio-production processes exclusively uses yeast and bacteria as the microorganism hosts to synthesise valuable commercial compounds.
  (BBSRC DTP) Optimisation of heteromeric protein complex formation via co-ordinated mRNA localisation
  Prof M Ashe, Dr M Pool, Prof C M Grant
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

RNA granules play key roles in cells controlling many aspects of mRNA fate. For instance, in response to stress the relocalisation of mRNAs to mRNA processing bodies (P-bodies) and stress granules facilitates the degradation or storage of unwanted or valuable mRNAs, respectively.
  (BBSRC DTP) Understanding mitochondrial protein quality control under normal and stress conditions
  Dr H Lu, Prof C M Grant, Prof S Hubbard
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mitochondria are vitally important organelles within living cells and are often described as their powerhouses, as the primary energy source for all biological activities.
  Partitioning primary and secondary changes of gene expression caused by gene mutations
  Dr D Talavera, Prof G D Pavitt, Dr J-M Schwartz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Control of gene expression is a complex cell process, which involves balancing both the synthesis and the degradation of RNA and protein so as to establish optimal levels of each protein.
  Proteomic approach to understand mitochondrial quality control under normal and stress conditions
  Dr H Lu, Prof S Hubbard
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Defects in protein quality control lead to the accumulation of misfolded and damaged proteins, which play an important role in many diseases (e.g.
  Regulatory roles for ribosome-associated proteins in protein synthesis
  Prof G D Pavitt, Dr M Pool
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Protein synthesis is a highly-conserved, dynamic and tightly controlled process that is central to the activity of all cells. All phases of translation can be controlled.
  Genetic constraints on adaptive evolution
  Dr M Reuter
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research in my group aims to understand how the genetic encoding of traits affects whether and how they will respond to selection.
  Investigating the influence of polyploidy on the evolution of a major human fungal pathogen
  Dr E Ballou
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The human fungal pathogen Cryptococcus neoformans undergoes an unusual morphological transition from haploid yeast to highly polyploid Titan cells during infection of the human host.
