  A multi-tissue in vitro model of osteoarthritis
  Prof M.P. Lewis, Dr D Player
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Osteoarthritis (OA) is a joint disorder which is predominantly found in elderly individuals (Lee et al., 2013), but has recently been linked to sports participation at high levels (Vannini et al., 2016).
  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.
  Structure/function studies of component proteins of anti-feeding prophage (Afp), a bacteriophage tail-like particle using high-resolution cryo-EM and x-ray crystallography
  Prof A Mitra
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are seeking a highly motivated candidate to carry out structure/function studies of component proteins of anti-feeding prophage (Afp), a bacteriophage tail-like particle using high-resolution cryo-EM and x-ray crystallography.
  Signalling pathways maintaining human embryonic stem cells
  Prof S J Kimber, Prof D Brison
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to determine the function of novel genes predicted to have critical roles in preimplantation human development and in disease in later life.
  The mechanism, function, and medically-relevant dysfunction of mitochondrial complex I (NADH:ubiquinone oxidoreductase) (On the University’s application portal, please select "PhD in Medical Science at the MRC Mitochondrial Biology Unit").
  Prof J Hirst
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Complex I (NADH:ubiquinone oxidoreductase) catalyses the first step in the respiratory chain and oxidative phosphorylation. NADH oxidation and quinone reduction, coupled to proton translocation across the inner membrane.
  Protein Misfolding and the Molecular Basis of Alzheimer’s Disease
  Dr J Viles
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. World-wide one in three people over the age of 65 will die with Alzheimer’s Disease (AD). The disease is characterised by deposits of amyloid plaques and fibrils of amyloid-beta peptide (Ab) are their main constituent.
  Functional analysis of fungal effector proteins in the barley/wheat powdery mildew plant-pathogen interactions.
  Dr L Bindschedler, Prof A Devoto
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pathogens secrete small proteins called effectors or virulence factors which are important for the successful invasion of the host.
  Role of the centrosome and cilia in development
  Dr C Wilkinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

My research interest lies in the roles of centrioles and associated proteins, as parts of the centrosome and cilium, in early vertebrate development, using zebrafish embryos as a model system.
  Functional interactions between GPCRs in the renal microvasculature
  Dr S V Smirnov
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hypertension and diabetes resulting in diabetic nephropathy (DN) are amongst the leading causes of chronic kidney disease (CKD) and end-stage kidney disease.
  Development of novel cancer treatments: structural studies of Nectin 4 in complex with bespoke anti-cancer peptides – to start October 2019 - for an MSc by Dissertation (MSD)
  Dr F Prischi, Dr V Bavro
Application Deadline: 1 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Scientific background. This project targets the current gap in therapeutic approaches targeting Triple Negative Breast Cancer (TNBC) that, unlike other breast cancer subtypes, lacks recommended chemotherapy treatment.
