  Precision Medicine DTP – Integration of single-cell RNA sequencing data from human and murine kidney disease to identify novel therapeutic targets
  Research Group: Centre for Cardiovascular Science
  Dr BC Conway, Dr T Chandra, Dr D Ferenbach
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease and for end-stage kidney disease (ESRD), at which point patients require dialysis or transplantation.
  Wellcome Trust funded four-year PhD programme in ‘One Health Models of Disease: Science, Ethics and Society’

Funding Type

PhD Type

Edinburgh Infectious Diseases, with the Centre for Biomedicine, Self and Society, is delighted to open applications to the first cohort of students on this new Wellcome Trust funded four-year PhD programme.
  EASTBIO: Novel approaches to improving calf health: new technology and data analytics
  Dr M Haskell, Dr C Duthie
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Maintaining good calf health is important for both the productivity and sustainability of farming enterprises. A report by the Cattle Health and Welfare Group (GB)) showed that 3.6% of dairy bull calves and 2.5% of dairy heifer calves died under 1 month of age.
  Precision Medicine DTP - Genomic analysis of the impact of sexual recombination on the segregation of virulence genes in African trypanosomes
  Research Group: The Roslin Institute
  Dr L Morrison, Dr A MacLeod, Dr J Prendergast
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. African trypanosomes are vector-borne protozoa that cause serious human and animal disease across sub-Saharan Africa.
  Precision Medicine DTP - 3D Modeling of Changes in Genome Architecture in Development and Disease
  Research Group: Institute of Cell Biology
  Prof E Schirmer, Dr D Marenduzzo
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Defects in spatial genome organisation have recently been linked to human disease and the National Institutes of Health, USA director speculated that most as yet unidentified disease alleles will occur in non-coding genome regions.
  Engineering de novo microscopic ecologies to monitor and dissect disease spread
  Dr T Gorochowski, Dr S English
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding what regulates the spread of diseases in space and time is critical if we are to combat them effectively.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Replacing deficient microglia in the developing brain: using a zebrafish model of human leukodystrophy to test new therapies
  Dr N Hamilton, Dr A J Grierson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

RNASET2-deficient leukodystrophy is a heritable white matter disorder affecting infants and characterised by severe psychomotor impairments.
  Mechanistic analysis of neurodevelopmental disorders caused by mutations in the gene RAC1
  Dr T Millard, Dr S Banka
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

RAC1 is a signalling protein that regulates many cellular processes and is essential during embryonic development. We recently discovered a novel genetic disease called RAC1-related neurodevelopmental disorder (RRND) that results from mutations in the RAC1 gene.
  Functional role of transcript diversity in salmon immunity: development of full-length RNA sequencing
  Dr D Macqueen, Dr D Robledo
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Disease is a pressing challenge to the sustainability of fish farming, causing huge economic loss, environmental issues, animal welfare problems, and reputational harm to industry.
  FULLY FUNDED PHD: Using remote imaging and machine learning tools to quantify ecological effects of red deer (Cervus elaphus)
  Dr R Biek, Dr T Morrison, Dr k Park, Dr L Gilbert
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The spatial distribution and movement of animal populations shapes a variety of ecological processes, including resource-consumer interactions, inter-specific competition and parasite/disease dynamics.
  (BBSRC DTP) Functional and structural analysis of RBBP5: a histone tail modifier essential for development, disease and healthy ageing
  Dr G Poulin, Prof A Sharrocks, Dr A J Whitmarsh
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The genome is the blueprint of any living system. However, it is the regulation of gene expression that enables life. For transcription to take place, the molecular machinery involved has to access genomic DNA.
  Project title: Elucidating the mechanisms of pathology in neurodevelopmental white matter diseases
  Dr N Hamilton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our research interests are to dissect the mechanism of auto-inflammatory neurological disorders using zebrafish as an animal model.
  Identifying inhibitors specific to the OPG-kinome: towards novel treatments for Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH).
  Prof A Lawrie, Dr R Thompson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a fatal progressive disease. Median life expectancy in untreated PAH patients is 2.8 years.
  (BBSRC DTP) Cardiac Physiology in the World’s Oldest Vertebrate, The Greenland Shark
  Dr H Shiels, Dr G Galli
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The life span of the Greenland shark is at least 272 years and may be as long as 500 years making this animal the longest living vertebrate on the planet1.
  (BBSRC DTP) The role of clock dysfunction in obesity-related inflammation and insulin resistance
  Dr D Bechtold, Dr S Cruickshank, Dr I Iqbal
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Obesity is one of the biggest challenges to public health in the UK and across much of the world. The major threat is in obesity-related metabolic disturbances, which drive insulin resistance, type-2 diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.
