  Investigating the function of developmental regulators in early human embryogenesis and stem cells
  Dr K Niakan
Application Deadline: 12 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 4-year PhD studentship is offered in Dr Kathy Niakan’’s Group based at the Francis Crick Institute (the Crick). This project will characterise key regulators of human embryogenesis.
  Hot stuff? Evaluating the human exposure hazard presented by land contaminated with organic flame retardants
  Prof S J Harrad, Dr M Abdallah
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chemical flame retardants (FRs) such as polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) and chlorinated organophosphates (e.g. tris (2-chloroisopropyl)phosphate – TCIPP) have been used extensively in a wide range of applications worldwide.
  Regulation of autophagy in human embryonic stem cells and its therapeutic application in induced pluripotent stem cell-based disease models
  Dr S Sarkar
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project background. Regulation of proteostasis is critical for maintaining tissue homeostasis. Autophagy, a major intracellular degradation pathway essential for cellular and energy homeostasis, functions in the clearance of aggregation-prone proteins and damaged organelles.
  Expanded potential stem cells for regenerative medicine, immunotherapy, and biotechnology
  Prof P Liu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Embryonic stem cells (ES cells) and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS cells) are pluripotent and thus hold great promise in regenerative medicine, studying disease mechanisms and drug discovery.
  Intelligent Human-Robot Collaboration for Smart Factory
  Dr Y Lu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent advances in sensing, computational intelligence, and big data analytics have been rapidly transforming and revolutionizing the manufacturing industry towards robot-rich and digitally connected factories.
  Funded PhD position in variable autonomy Human-Robot systems in extreme environments
  Dr M Chiou, Prof R Stolkin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Robotics systems used in time- and safety-critical domains (e.g. disaster response, nuclear decommissioning) are often remotely teleoperated, with little or no autonomy used to assist the human operator.
  Human fat distribution and metabolic disease: Identifying the mechanistic basis for site-specific fat storage to identify new ways of tackling the metabolic consequences of obesity.
  Prof F Karpe, Dr M Neville, Dr M Todorcevic, Dr K Pinnick
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Identifying the mechanistic basis for site-specific fat storage to identify new ways of tackling the metabolic consequences of obesity.
  The effectiveness of independent directors in family businesses in emerging economies: Contingent on social and human capital? (SF19/AFM/SOBHAN)
  Dr A Sobhan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Independent directors, one of the most crucial element of corporate governance (CG) codes based on the Anglo-American model, have been transplanted across emerging economies (Aguilera and Haxhi, 2018).
  Cognitive Robotics and Human Robot Interaction
  Prof A Cangelosi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research on cognitive robotics focuses on the design of intelligent behaviour and sensorimotor and cognitive skills in robots, by taking inspiration from human cognition (psychology) and brain mechanisms (neuroscience).
  Digital Multimedia and Human Memory - Preventing Technology-Driven Memory Degredation
  Dr S Clinch
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Digital Multimedia and Memory. Technology has the potential to transform the way that we think and remember, with potential positive and negative impacts on every aspect of our lives.
  A human ’mini-gut-on-a-chip’ to study microbial-epithelial cell interactions (SAEEDU20DTP)
  Dr A Saeed, Dr M R Williams
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human organoids are 3D fragments of adult tissues and ideally conserve all of the (stem) cell types and recapitulate all of the (patho)physiological processes associated with human health and disease.
  Understanding and predicting disease-associated mutations in dynamic and disordered regions of proteins
  Research Group: MRC Human Genetics Unit
  Dr J Marsh
Application Deadline: 13 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited from outstanding candidates to join the MRC Human Genetics Unit (HGU), part of the Institute of Genetics and Molecular Medicine (IGMM) at the University of Edinburgh.
  Virtual Human-Robot Collaboration: developing an immersive human-robot collaboration testing environment using virtual reality tools
  Prof A Tiwari
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this research theme is to develop an immersive human-robot collaboration testing environment using virtual reality tools, such as HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and VR CAVEs.
  The role of endogenous retroviruses in human health and disease
  Dr G Magiorkinis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

More than 10 years have passed since the first high quality (nearly) complete version of the human genome and we are still exploring its functionality.
  (MRC DTP) Developing a zebrafish model for a novel human neurodevelopmental disorder
  Prof G D Pavitt, Dr P Kasher, Dr S Banka
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. We have recently discovered a novel human disorder caused by mutations in the EIF5A1 gene resulting in developmental problems, small head size and craniofacial defects in children [1].
