  Prof I Clark, Dr S Fountain
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

ATP is well known for its role in intracellular energy metabolism but ATP and a number of related nucleotides are also important extracellular signalling molecules.

We study the architecture and functional dynamics of membrane proteins, especially many medically relevant membrane transport systems.
  Arctic climate extremes: the role of changing interactions between atmospheric modes (MARSHALLUBAS20ARIES)
  Dr G Marshall, Prof I Renfrew, Dr S Hosking, Dr J Jones
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND. During the past few decades the Arctic has experienced the greatest warming on Earth. the resultant sea ice loss, permafrost melting and snow cover changes have affected the regional hydrology, ecosystems and indigenous peoples.
  CO2 Uptake by the Southern Ocean: Using atmospheric measurements to understand the key processes (SUNTHARALINGAMUENV20ARIES)
  Dr P Suntharalingam, Dr A Jones, Dr A Manning, Prof C Le Quere
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BACKGROUND AND APPROACH. The Southern Ocean plays a fundamental role in regulating global climate through uptake of heat and atmospheric carbon-dioxide (CO2), and removes ~40% of atmospheric CO2 derived from human activity.
  Unravelling the mysteries of air quality above polar snow and ice using the isotopic fingerprints of reactive nitrogen (FREYUBAS20ARIES)
  Dr M Frey, Prof J Kaiser
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND. Climate and environment in polar and high-altitude regions are particularly sensitive to anthropogenic perturbation.
  How Proteins Bind Unusual DNA Structures (WALLERU20DTP2)
  Dr Z Waller, Dr A Gates
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Think you know the structure of DNA? Think again. It is often assumed that DNA exists only as the iconic Watson-Crick “twisted ladder” double helix; but it can actually adopt many different types of structures.
  School of Law Studentships

Funding Type

PhD Type

Join a leading Law school. UEA Law School is a vibrant and supportive community of expert academics & scholars, housed in the splendid 17th century Earlham Hall.
  EASTBIO Antimicrobial peptide signalling to CD8+ T cells
  Dr E Gwyer Findlay, Dr M Swamy
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

CD8+ T cells are essential for robust immune responses to pathogens, particularly in the intestine. We are interested in how antimicrobial peptides – released from neutrophils and mucosal epithelial cells – affect the differentiation of, and cytokine production by, CD8+ T cells.
