  How are kinetochores, cohesin and the pericentromeric chromatin modified during chromosome segregation in meiosis?
  Research Group: Institute of Cell Biology
  Prof A Marston
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are studying the molecular mechanisms that ensure the accurate segregation of chromosomes during cell division.
  How to build chromosome segregation machinery in meiosis and mitosis
  Research Group: Institute of Cell Biology
  Prof H Ohkura
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Genes must be passed on accurately from cell to cell and from parents to children. Failure to do so can be a cause or contributing factor in human illnesses, such as cancer or reproductive/birth defects.
  Regulation of mitotic and meiotic chromosome function by different cohesin complexes
  Research Group: Meiosis
  Dr E Martinez-Perez
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cohesin, the complex that provides sister chromatid cohesion (SCC) to ensure correct chromosome segregation during cell division, belongs to a family of SMC (structural maintenance of chromosomes) proteins conserved from bacteria to humans (1).
  EASTBIO: Does Rif1 regulate meiotic DNA replication and recombination?
  Dr A Lorenz, Prof A Donaldson, Prof A Marston
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisors. Dr Alexander Lorenz (University of Aberdeen). https://homepages.abdn.ac.uk/a.lorenz/pages/index.html. Professor Anne Donaldson (University of Aberdeen).
  Establishment of germline-specific DNA methylation in plants (FENGJ20DTP)
  Dr X Feng
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our recent work demonstrated distinctive DNA methylation occurs at hundreds of genes across the entire male germline in plants. This germline-specific methylation is catalysed by a ubiquitous methylation pathway, and regulates meiosis by controlling gene expression and splicing.
  Deciphering a novel anti-ageing epigenetic programme
  Dr G Poulin, Prof A Sharrocks
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over two decades of intense research in the field of epigenetics have produced compelling evidence that chromatin modifications are crucial for processes such as DNA repair, transcription, splicing, mitosis, meiosis, and in the preservation of the epigenetic memory of cells.
  Male-driven sex allocation: adaptive adjustments in sperm sex ratios.
  Dr R Firman
Application Deadline: 20 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ability of males to adjust offspring sex ratios has traditionally been dismissed on the assumption that their contribution is genetically determined during meiosis and therefore not under adaptive control.
