  Evolution and conservation of membrane-associated effector proteins in plant pathogens
  Dr CN Meisrimler
Application Deadline: 25 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We seek a PhD candidate to join a 3-year research program based at the University of Canterbury (UC) to investigate the 3D structure of effector proteins targeting the membrane associated NAC transcription factors.
  MSc by Research Programme: Signalling pathways controlling protein degradation upon stress
  Dr A Rousseau
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.
  Establishing Chlamydomonas reinhardtii as an industrial chassis for the production of high value biochemicals
  Research Group: Institute of Molecular Plant Sciences
  Dr Attila Molnar, Dr A McCormick
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii is an invaluable reference organism to research fields including algal, plant and ciliary biology (1).
  The impact of gene expression noise on plant fitness under stress conditions linked to climate change
  Dr U Bechtold, Dr R Zabet, Dr A P Harrison
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Start date. October 2020. Duration. 3 years (full time). Location. Colchester Campus. Based in. School of Life Sciences (in collaboration with Department of Mathematical Sciences).
  Exploring the mitotic functions of ASPM in human brain size regulation
  Dr J Bond, Dr E E Morrison, Prof M Peckham
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The increase in relative brain size is one of the most striking events in human evolution. To determine how human brain size is normally regulated we have investigated the cause of autosomal recessive primary microcephaly (MCPH), a congenital disorder of reduced brain size and associated mental retardation.
  Tackling the fungal threat to global food security
  Prof S Avery, Dr M Brock
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fungi cause diseases of crops and spoilage of foods that cause losses of up to a third of food yield. This is a major global challenge given the world’s growing population and need for more food, while climate change is predicted to limit food supply in the future.
  DNA repair fidelity, radiosensitivity and cancer.
  Prof T Humphrey, Dr V D'Angiolella
Application Deadline: 3 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

THE PROJECT. With almost half of all cancer patients receiving radiotherapy, tumour-specific radiosensitization remains an important goal for cancer research.
  The role of the AXL Receptor Tyrosine Kinase in the DNA damage response
  Prof A Giaccia, Prof E Hammond
Application Deadline: 3 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

THE PROJECT. The Axl receptor tyrosine kinase is a critical driver of tumour progression and drug resistance, and has resulted in combining Axl inhibitors with both targeted and cytotoxic therapies.
  Regulation of synaptic protein function by protein palmitoylation
  Dr M Collins
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Palmitoylation (S-acylation), the only known reversible lipid modification of proteins, is an important regulator of protein localisation and function.
  Elucidating plant alkaloid biosynthesis
  Dr B R Lichman, Dr W Unsworth
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants are capable of forming complex natural products from simple starting materials. Many of these natural products are bioactive, but access is limited as they are difficult to synthesise using organic chemistry and are present in small quantities in the natural source.
