  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.
  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.
  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.
  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.
  Influence of a dietary supplement on blood and muscle oxidative stress biomarkers, skeletal muscle respiration and exercise performance in healthy adults
  Dr S Bailey, Dr NC Bishop, Dr N Martin
Application Deadline: 3 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will assess the efficacy of a dietary supplement to alter endogenous antioxidant systems, oxidative stress biomarkers and cellular respiration in human primary myoblasts and skeletal muscle sampled from humans undergoing dietary supplementation.
  Creating a systematic mycobacterial stress-response map
  Dr M Banzhaf
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bacterial chemical-genomics screens can quantify the impact of each gene on the fitness of the organism subjected to a large number of chemical/environmental perturbations.
