  Mapping the circadian clock-dependent regulation of the secretory pathway
  Prof K E Kadler, Dr Q-J Meng
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The protein secretory pathway in cells comprises a series of membranous compartments and transport vesicles that the cell uses to synthesise, post-translationally modify, and move proteins for delivery to the plasma membrane or for secretion to the extracellular matrix.
  Transcription factors mediating light input to the Arabidopsis circadian clock
  Dr P Devlin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The circadian clock is tightly tied to the light environment. Transcriptional feedback loops are able to generate a self-sustaining rhythm of approximately 24 hours which impinges on almost every aspect of physiology in higher organisms.
  Rhythms under your skin: Enhancing vaccine efficiency using a state-of-the-art dissolvable intradermal microneedle patch and harnessing the skin dendritic cell circadian clock
  Dr A Curtis, Dr R Donnelly
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Vaccination is the greatest success story of modern medicine with the WHO estimating 10 million deaths were prevented by vaccines between 2010 and 2015.
  (BBSRC DTP) The role of clock dysfunction in obesity-related inflammation and insulin resistance
  Dr D Bechtold, Dr S Cruickshank, Dr I Iqbal
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Obesity is one of the biggest challenges to public health in the UK and across much of the world. The major threat is in obesity-related metabolic disturbances, which drive insulin resistance, type-2 diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.
  Circadian control of energy metabolism and inflammation
  Prof D Ray
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Employing a range of approaches to address the physiological importance of the circadian:nuclear receptor system, ranging from population genetics, Circadian mechanisms regulate most mammalian physiology, with particular importance in the regulation of innate immunity, through the macrophage in particular, and energy metabolism, regulating liver, adipose and muscle.
  Rhythmic control of energy balance - to understand how our internal clocks regulate energy metabolism
  Dr D Bechtold, Prof D Ray
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

24-hour rhythms are present in virtually all aspects of our behaviour and physiology. These rhythms are underpinned by circadian clocks that run throughout the body, and act within each tissue to orchestrate many organ functions and rhythmic activities (e.g.
  How does the macrophage molecular clock modulate thrombogenesis?
  Dr R Preston, Dr A Curtis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of mortality and morbidity worldwide. A common feature of CVD is vascular inflammation that in turn promotes blood clotting and thrombosis.
  MSc by Research programme: The role of the CCR4-NOT complex in somite segmentation
  Prof J K Dale
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.
