  Investigation of a probiotic strain of Lactobacillus plantarum 2025 and the development of novel antibacterials
  Prof A Karlyshev
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The rise of multidrug resistant forms of microbial pathogens imposes a serious problem to public health worldwide. The rapid spread of antimicrobial resistance is associated with misuse of conventional antibiotics.
  Valuing ecosystem services provided by UK bats under climate change. PhD in Biosciences (NERC GW4 + DTP)
  Dr O Razgour
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Dr Orly Razgour, Department of Biosciences, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter. Additional Supervisors.
  MRC DTP 4 Year PhD Programme: Bacterial stress sensing and antibiotic action
  Dr U Zachariae, Dr M Bergkessel
Application Deadline: 11 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is offered as part of the University of Dundee 4-year MRC DTP Programme “Quantitative and Interdisciplinary approaches to biomedical science”.
  Investigating modes of action of genetic risk variants through integrated analysis of multiple high-dimensional “omics” data.
  Research Group: Division of Statistics
  Prof A Lynch, Dr M Papathomas
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Genome-wide association studies have identified thousands of genomic loci that are associated with higher risk of a trait (often a disease such as breast cancer).
  (BBSRC DTP) A computational model for improving catalytic rate in enzymes
  Dr J Warwicker, Dr S De Visser, Dr S Hay
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Directed evolution of enzyme activity is an established methodology, generating biocatalysts that are of benefit for biotechnology, for example in bioenergy production [Turner 2009].
  Regulation of autophagy in human embryonic stem cells and its therapeutic application in induced pluripotent stem cell-based disease models
  Dr S Sarkar
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project background. Regulation of proteostasis is critical for maintaining tissue homeostasis. Autophagy, a major intracellular degradation pathway essential for cellular and energy homeostasis, functions in the clearance of aggregation-prone proteins and damaged organelles.
  Building the human endometrium in vitro: The role of macrophages in receptive and decidual endometrium to optimise reproductive health
  Dr E Mann, Dr Peter Ruane, Prof J Aplin, Dr L Mohiyiddeen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The human endometrium is a highly dynamic tissue that rapidly generates over ~20 days and differentiates to form a uterus lining receptive to embryo implantation, further transforming into decidua to support embryonic development, or breaking down before regenerating a few days later.
  Deciphering the neural code of the hippocampus
  Dr M Montemurro, Dr J Gigg
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The brain processes and stores information about our lives and the world that surrounds us. At the neural scale, information is encoded through the precise timing of activity across populations of neurons.
  Investigating the role of bioactive lipids in skin health
  Prof A Nicolaou, Prof C A O'Neill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human skin depends on systemic provision of fatty acids that are important to maintain the integrity of the epidermal barrier as well as to support the associated immune and inflammatory reactions.
  Repurposing Existing Drugs as Cancer Therapies
  Dr J Brenton
Application Deadline: 30 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The extraordinary genomic complexity of copy-number aberration in high grade serous ovarian carcinoma (HGSOC) has prevented effective molecular stratification in the clinic.
