Mitochondria are fundamental to the function of our neurons, and defects in the function of this important organelle are found in several neurodegenerative disorders, as well as in normal ageing.
  (BBSRC DTP) Understanding mitochondrial protein quality control under normal and stress conditions
  Dr H Lu, Prof C M Grant, Prof S Hubbard
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

Mitochondria are vitally important organelles within living cells and are often described as their powerhouses, as the primary energy source for all biological activities.
  EASTBIO Understanding the rules of mitochondrial nucleic acid escape in innate immune activation
  Dr A Dhir, Dr S Tait
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mitochondria are the ‘power-stations’ of our cell, providing energy for cellular function. Mitochondria have evolved from ancient bacteria that invaded our cells a billion of years ago and have ‘integrated’ into our biological system in an endosymbiotic relationship.
  Targeting molecules to mitochondria, mitochondrial radical production, thiol redox state and redox signalling (On the University’s application portal, please select "PhD in Medical Science at the MRC Mitochondrial Biology Unit").
  Prof M Murphy
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Targeting molecules to mitochondria. Bioactive molecules can be targeted to mitochondria within cells by linking them to lipophilic cations.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Elucidating Disease Mechanisms using New Approaches to Capture Transient Protein Complexes in the Mitochondria
  Prof L-Y Lian, Prof A J Wilson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell. Its malfunction is the cause of many diseases, ranging from cancer to heart and neurological diseases, which become more prevalent with age.
  Proteomic approach to understand mitochondrial quality control under normal and stress conditions
  Dr H Lu, Prof S Hubbard
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Defects in protein quality control lead to the accumulation of misfolded and damaged proteins, which play an important role in many diseases (e.g.
  Finding the eat-me signals
  Dr I Ganley
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Ganley lab is interested in unravelling the molecular mechanism of autophagy (which literally translates from the Greek meaning to eat oneself).
  China Scholarship Council - Finding the eat-me signals
  Dr I Ganley
Application Deadline: 15 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The School of Life Sciences at the University of Dundee, joint with the China Scholarship Council (CSC), is proud to be able to offer a scholarship programme for postgraduate research students.
  An exploration of the links between mitochondrial function and splicing regulation. PhD in Medical Studies (SWBio DTP)
  Dr L Harries
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Professor Lorna Harries, College of Medicine and Health, University of Exeter. Additional Supervisors. - Professor Mark Lindsay, Department of Pharmacy and Pharmacology, University of Bath.
  Hydrogen sulphide as a treatment for respiratory disease.
  Dr R Roberts, Dr SPH Alexander
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We have demonstrated that hydrogen sulphide (H2S) is synthesised within the airways in the lungs. H2S synthesis in the airways occurs through activation of the enzymes cystathionine  lyase, cystathionine β synthase, and mercaptopyruvate sulphurtransferase (MPST).

  Prof E Kunji
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mitochondria are central to the utilization of sugars and fat by the eukaryotic cell in order to synthesise ATP via oxidative phosphorylation.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Mitochondrial DNA mutations in blood: Why do they decline?
  Dr S Pickett, Prof M Collins, Dr O Russell
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type
