  Bioinformatics analyses of unknown metagenomics fraction
  Dr S Gweon
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"DNA sequencing technology now allows us to investigate not only the identity of organisms that are present in complex environments like soil, but also what these tiny microbes are doing.
  Autonomous learning with Artificial Intelligence
  Dr A Starkey, Dr M N Campbell-Bannerman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ability to learn the sensorimotor maps of unknown environments without supervision is a vital capability of any autonomous agent, be it biological or artificial.
  Structural studies of the TPLATE complex
  Dr K Tripsianes
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The TPLATE complex (TPC) is essential for endocytosis in plants, yet it is evolutionary lost from yeasts and animals, pointing to the fact that endocytosis is mechanistically regulated differently.
  Genome mining of novel antimicrobial natural products from new bacterial strains
  Dr H Deng, Prof M Jaspars
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is rising to dangerously high levels in all parts of the world. In Europe alone, drug-resistant bacteria are estimated to cause 25,000 deaths annually and cost more than US$1.5 billion every year in healthcare expenses and productivity losses.
  Functions of cyclin-dependent kinase 11 (CDK11) in regulation of gene expression
  Dr D Blažek, Assoc Prof Z Zdráhal, Dr P Alexiou
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

CDK11 is ubiquitously expressed in all tissues and the CDK11 null mouse is lethal at an early stage of development indicating an important role for Cdk11 in the adult as well as during development.
  Integrative structural biology of 3’UTRs
  Dr P J Lukavsky, Dr B Tichý, Prof Z Zdrahal
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The non-coding part of the genome vastly increased from worm to humans while the number of protein-coding genes remained constant.
  Characterising temperate bacteriophages in complex microbial communities and their role in antimicrobial resistance (Ref:SF18/APP/Smith)
  Dr D Smith
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Temperate bacteriophages have the ability to integrate into the chromosome of their target bacterium that leads to a change in the physiology of their bacterial host.
  Investigating the Drosophila DF31 protein to gain insight into the mechanisms and chromatin maintenance in animal cells
  Dr S Cotterill, Dr A Nohturfft
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Drosophila DF31 protein is an abundant ribonucleoprotein that localises to euchromatic regions and is involved in maintaining chromosome structure.
  Genomic basis of extra-group paternity in the cooperatively breeding Seychelles warbler
  Dr H L Dugdale
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Indirect genetic benefits are hypothesised to drive the evolution of extra-group paternity (EGP), yet its genomic basis is unknown.
  How passive diffusivity in cells can be a function of protein diffusant’s physiochemical properties
  Dr R Bearon, Prof Y-C Lin
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Precise regulation of protein distribution and dynamics is vital for cellular functions and organization. Defects in protein transport have been implicated in degenerative and neoplastic diseases.
