  Budding yeast as a model for sudden cardiac death
  Dr T Hoefken
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sudden unexpected cardiac death is responsible for about half of all heart disease deaths. It is an unexpected death caused by a change in heart rhythm.
  The production of alcohols as commodity chemicals/ biofuels using yeast as a vehicle
  Prof M Ashe, Prof C M Grant, Dr J-M Schwartz, Dr J Winterburn
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Crude oil represents probably the most important natural resource to industrial nations. As well as fuel, crude oil is used to produce a host of chemicals that govern modern day life.
  Engineering synthetic ribosomal RNAs (rRNAs) in yeast
  Prof P Cai, Prof D Delneri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Advances in DNA synthesis technology have led to rapid growth in the field of synthetic biology, heralding a nascent era of synthetic genomics.
  Expanding the Genetic Code of a Synthetic Yeast
  Prof P Cai, Dr A Green
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The proposed project aims to develop an efficient yeast-based protein expression platform with an expanded genetic code. The standard genetic code of natural organisms comprises 20 canonical amino acids.
  Production of Industrial Chemicals for Personal Care and Health Care Using Oleaginous Yeast
  Dr TS Wong
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many ingredients in the personal care and health care products, for example lipids, are derived from petroleum, animal fat or vegetable oil.
  KESS2 Scholarship: Investigating stress specific functions of Mec1, the budding yeast functional homolog of the mammalian ATM/ATR
  Dr R Cha
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

ATM and ATR are conserved signal transduction proteins involved in a range of fundamental processes including genome duplication, the DNA damage response (DDR), protein homeostasis, cellular metabolism, and meiosis.
  The role mRNA-specific translation during chronological aging
  Prof C M Grant, Prof M Ashe, Prof S Hubbard
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biological ageing can be thought of as a progressive decline in the ability of an organism to survive stress and disease. It is a complex process which is influenced by both genetic and environmental factors.
  The mechanism of DNA organisation mediated by cohesion and condensin
  Dr B Hu, Prof A Donaldson
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The DNA of all organisms must be compacted in order to store a large amount of genetic information in one cell. Compaction must be regulated to allow access of DNA replication or transcription machinery, but to enable suitable condensation for effective chromosome segregation into two daughter cells at mitosis.
  EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in BioDesign Engineering

Funding Type

PhD Type

The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in BioDesign Engineering aims to train the next generation of leaders at the interface of biology, engineering and data science.
  (WIS) Optimisation of heteromeric protein complex formation via co-ordinated mRNA localisation
  Prof M Ashe, Prof C M Grant, Prof G D Pavitt
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The glycolytic pathway is critical for almost all living systems playing key roles in cancer, diabetes and various human genetic diseases.
