  Multimerisation of ELAV/Hu proteins – a key mechanism ensuring specificity for RNA recognition in health and disease
  Dr M Soller, Dr T Knowles
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Aims. Determine the structure of the ELAV dodecameric complex bound to target RNA by cryoEM and functionally probe interaction interfaces in vitro and in vivo in transgenic Drosophila models for neurodegeneration and cancer.
  LaNts in wound repair, stem cell activation and squamous cell carcinoma
  Dr K Hamill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Laminin N terminus proteins (LaNts) are a relatively unstudied protein family that are related to netrins and laminins. To date there are only two publications and one preprint about the LaNt proteins in the literature which means there is a massive potential to do novel, ground breaking research in this area.
  (MRC DTP) Investigating the role of neuroinflammation and cholesterol metabolism in the progression of brain injury following intracerebral haemorrhage
  Dr P Kasher, Dr D Brough, Prof S Allan, Dr A Parry-Jones
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Intracerebral haemorrhage (ICH) is a type of stroke caused by spontaneous bleeding within the brain.
  PhD position/Graduate Research Assistantship in the area of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology
  Dr A Mishra
Application Deadline: 14 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Laboratory of Lung Inflammation, Department of Pathobiology, College of Veterinary Medicine at Auburn University have opening for highly motivated PhD candidate/ Graduate Research Assistant to work on NIH-funded research project in the area of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology.
  Egr2 and 3 mediated T cell tolerance in cancer and their impact in immune checkpoint therapy
  Dr S Li
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tumour infiltrated lymphocytes (TILs) contain tumour reactive T cells and have been used as adoptive cell transfer therapy in patients which can mediate cancer regression.
  Can improved genetic understanding of grain weight help feed the world? (UAUYJ20DTP)
  Dr C Uauy
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Wheat provides 20% of the calories and protein consumed by humans. The world population will reach 9 billion by 2050, which requires food production to more than double.
  How does epithelial tissue organization modulate pluripotent stem cell identity and fate?
  Dr M Shahbazi
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

During embryogenesis pluripotent stem cells give rise to all the cell types present in the organism. How pluripotent cells decide their fate is a fundamental question in development and regeneration.
  Cellular cross-talk at the perivascular niche and the blood brain barrier
  Prof B Hogan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Much research on vasculature has focussed on the endothelial cells that line functional vessels, however the milieu of cells that surround vessels (mural cells) play important and under-appreciated roles in homeostasis and disease.
  The Hippo pathway and Yap1 in vascular growth control in development and disease
  Prof B Hogan, Dr A. Cox
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lymphatic vessels play roles in the drainage of tissue fluid, trafficking of immune cells and the metastatic spread of cancer.
  Development of gene therapies for muscular dystrophies
  Dr L Popplewell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The activities in the Popplewell lab focus on the development of pre-clinical gene therapies for neuromuscular diseases, in particular muscular dystrophies based on gene replacement, endonuclease-mediated gene editing, antisense oligonucleotide (AO)-induced exon skipping and gene sliencing.
  Interneuron Development in the Zebrafish Spinal Cord
  Dr K Lewis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Lewis Lab moved to Syracuse University from Cambridge University in the UK in 2010.
  Early detection of colorectal cancer

  (MRC DTP) Innate immune crosstalk and orchestration of mucosal immunity
  Dr M Hepworth, Prof A MacDonald
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Barrier tissue sites - including the gastrointestinal tract, lung and skin – are the primary site of exposure to a multitude of foreign organisms and environmental challenges.
  (MRC DTP) Location, Location, Location: The importance of the immunological landscape during parasitic infection
  Prof R K Grencis, Dr K Couper
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Whipworm infection is one of the three major types of parasitic helminth infections of man, infecting one in fifteen of the world’s population.
  (MRC DTP) The importance of 24h rhythms in the gut microbiome for immunity
  Dr J Gibbs, Dr M Hepworth, Prof K Else
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The gut microbiome is a collection of trillions of organisms. These bacteria and the metabolites they produce (through the breakdown of dietary components) play a critical role in the maintenance of immunity.
