  Statistical genetics and genomics of complex traits
  Dr L Leach, Prof Z Luo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A highly motivated student is sought to train as a statistical geneticist working on the dissection of complex trait phenotypes in human, plant and animal populations into their underlying genetic components.
  MRC DTP 4 Year PhD Programme: Metformin-associated B12 deficiency and cognitive function in Type 2 Diabetes
  Dr L Kang, Dr A Doney
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”.
  Dissection of host gene regulation during infection by an intracellular pathogen
  Dr L Morrison, Dr J Prendergast, Dr T Connelly
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

How gene expression is regulated is key to determining how cells within an animal respond to infection. This is particularly important when cells are invaded by intracellular pathogens, and can determine infection, establishment and proliferation.
  EASTBIO Dark matter in the microbiome – assembling eukaryotic genomes from large metagenomic datasets
  Dr M Watson, Prof JN Newbold
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies / The Roslin Institute.
  EASTBIO Dissecting the role of the immune system in tumour initiation using experimental & computational analysis
  Dr Y Feng, Dr L Schumacher
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The mechanisms that modulate the pre-neoplastic stage of tumourigenesis in vivo are largely unknown due to the lack of suitable animal models.
  EASTBIO The role and optimisation of the microbiome in molluscan larval development
  Dr T Bean, Dr FB Batista, Dr M Watson
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies / The Roslin Institute. Bivalve hatcheries produce millions of juvenile animals for on-growing in aquaculture farms worldwide.
  Precision Medicine DTP - Analyzing network formation during brain tumour initiation
  Dr D Sieger, Prof P Uhlén
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. High grade brain tumours (HGBTs) represent a complex and devastating disease and are posing an unmet clinical need. These tumours resist multi-modal therapies and survival times are only 15 months on average.
  Genetic studies of corneal endothelial dystrophies and development of alternative treatment options
  Dr M Ali
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The cornea is the protective front part of the eye that provides most of the eyes focusing power. The endothelium is a single-cell layer on the inside of the cornea that maintains fluid balance and is required for corneal transparency.
  How human teeth form and how that process fails in the inherited condition amelogenesis imperfecta
  Prof C Inglehearn
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Amelogenesis is the process of enamel formation and is essential for the development of functional teeth. Amelogenesis imperfecta (AI) is a failure of that process.
  Molecular mechanisms of influenza virus replication
  Prof E Fodor
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Influenza viruses are important human and animal pathogens; they cause widespread clinical and veterinary disease and have a considerable economic impact.
