  PhD Scholarship in molecular biology of plant stress adaptation: The role of the membrane-associated NAC transcription factors
  Prof IA Dickie
Application Deadline: 21 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

We seek a PhD candidate to join a 3-year research program based at the University of Canterbury (UC) to investigate the role of membrane associated NAC transcription factors in plant stress adaptation.
  Plant responses to stress, metabolites for health and fuel from cell walls.
  Prof A Devoto
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Projects are available in the following areas. Stress responses in crops and sustainable biomass production and processing. The project aims at elucidating several aspects of the control of plant defences and to identify environmentally friendly forms of plant protectants, leading to enhanced crop yields.
  Transcriptional responses to cellular stress
  Dr PG Grzechnik
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Position for a PhD student is available in the group of Dr Pawel Grzechnik at the University of Birmingham. The aim of the project is to understand how eukaryotic cells remodel RNA biology in order to survive stress generated by pathological conditions and external stressors.
  Adaptation to oxidative stress in hepatitis C virus persistence: the role of IRES-dependent translation.
  Dr S-W Chan, Prof R Ford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) causes a clinically important disease affecting 3% of the world population (Chan 2014). About 75% of the infection will develop into chronic hepatitis, which can then progress into fibrosis, cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma.
  Psychological, Physiological, and Behavioural Responses to Stress
  Dr S Williams
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

By its very nature, sport and physical activity can be very stressful. How an individual responds to these demands, and whether they appraise this stress as challenging or threatening can influence whether they excel or fall to pieces in such situations.
  Multi-scale Characterisation of Residual Stress in AGR Fuel Cladding
  Dr H Coules
Application Deadline: 1 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Residual stresses in the stainless steel cladding of spent Advanced Gas-cooled Reactor (AGR) nuclear fuel elements affect their behaviour during storage.
  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.
  Impact of diet on cardiovascular responses to acute mental stress
  Dr C Rendeiro, Dr JJCS Veldhuijzen van Zanten
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cardiovascular diseases remain the second cause of premature death in the UK. In particular, mental stress is a known important contributing factor to mechanisms underlying cardiovascular events, with mounting evidence suggesting that mental stress can negatively affect human endothelial function (Poitras et al., 2013).
  How does PAP, a stress-induced metabolite, regulate gene expression?
  Research Group: Institute of Molecular, Cell and Systems Biology
  Dr Matt Jones, Dr E Kaiserli
Application Deadline: 22 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Jones lab investigates how light signals from the environment interact with the circadian clock to minimize crop loss in adverse conditions.
  Stress regulation of protein translation: role in cancer and neurodegeneration
  Dr A J Whitmarsh, Prof M Ashe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cells are subjected to a range of stresses that include physical injury, changes in oxygen levels or temperature, nutrient deprivation, radiation and infection.
  A co-creation development and feasibility study to adapt a Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction intervention, HEADS: UP, for people with aphasia
  Dr M Lawrence, Ms G Pearl, Prof M Grealy, Dr A Lowit
Application Deadline: 4 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Ref. SHLS19035. Within the United Kingdom there are 100,000+ strokes per year and an estimated 1.1 million stroke survivors.
  Metabolic rewiring in liver cancer: Role of oxidative stress and the Nrf2 pathway
  Dr A. Cox
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many of the major risks factors for developing liver cancer such as alcohol, obesity, smoking and toxin exposure share in common a role for oxidative stress.
  From start to finish: roles for the N-end rule pathway of protein degradation in plant development and stress-response
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr D Gibbs
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In order to effectively co-ordinate their growth and development, plants need to be able to respond to changes in their environment, whether it is adapting to the seasons or coping with stresses.
  Experimental and numerical investigation of methods to dynamically influence the permeability of fractured rock in the near field environment using thermal stress and fluid pressure.
  Dr C McDermott, Dr A Fraser Harris
Application Deadline: 5 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD will form part of a larger industry sponsored project developing smart pumping technology capable of delivering controlled location specific fluid pulses to rock.
  TempR: Developing reproductive resilience to heat stress in rice.
  Prof Z Wilson, Dr S Heuer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Flower development and seed set is critical for high-yielding crops. Pollen formation is extremely sensitive to temperature stress, resulting in male sterility and seed-set failure.
