  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.
  (MRC CASE) Methods for non-invasive sampling and detection of exhaled breath aldehydes as markers of oxidative stress.
  Dr S Fowler, Prof P Barran
Application Deadline: 14 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Aldehydes are end-products of lipid peroxidation, and hence represent potential markers of oxidative stress, produced via generation of alkoxyl radicals.
  The mechanism of regulation of protein synthesis via eIF2 molecular complexes
  Dr A Roseman, Prof G D Pavitt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Control of protein synthesis is critical for normal metabolism, development and responses to stress. One major pathway is called the integrated stress response (ISR) and centres on translational control of the general protein synthesis factor eIF2B via the phosphorylation of eIF2 [1,2].
  Persistence of the Listeria monocytogenes in food processing environments: Unravelling the mechanisms using omics approaches (ref: SF18/APP/FOX)
  Dr E Fox
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The pathogenic bacterium Listeria monocytogenes causes the severe disease listeriosis, which is associated with high mortality rates of approximately 20%.
  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.
  Characterization and functional analysis of a novel cancer-associated gene
  Dr JP de Magalhaes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In order to identify new candidate cancer-related genes, our lab developed a bioinformatics “guilt-by-association” method to identify and rank genes that are co-expressed with known cancer-related genes.
  Chromatin remodelling in health and disease: determining the role of ATRX in the maintenance of chromatin and how mutations perturb disparate nuclear nuclear processes and lead to human disease
  Dr R Gibbons, Prof D Higgs
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

It has become apparent that the regulation of chromatin structure is of paramount importance in a wide variety of fundamental nuclear processes including gene expression, DNA replication, repair and recombination.
  Hematopoietic Stem Cell Genetics: Using single cell biology and genetics to understand how hematopoietic stem cells normally sustain blood formation, and how this process is altered during ageing and when leukemia develops.
  Prof Claus Nerlov, Dr P Vyas
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Using single cell biology and genetics to understand how hematopoietic stem cells normally sustain blood formation, and how this process is altered during ageing and when leukemia develops.
