Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisors. Dr Jonathan Pettitt (University of Aberdeen). https://www.aberdeenwormlab.org/. Dr Berndt Mueller (University of Aberdeen).
  Advanced Image Processing and Machine Learning Techniques for Complex Multidimensional Imaging Data
  Dr B Obara
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

PhD in Computer Science at Durham University, UK. The project will develop techniques and methods for processing and analysis of complex multidimensional image data, with applications in biology, medicine, engineering, remote sensing, and arts and humanities.
  Computational Modelling of Biological Visual Processing Utilising MEA Electrode Arrays
  Prof TM McGinnity
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over 60 million people worldwide are blind and this number is rising as the global population ages. There are a number of major eye diseases, many of them associated with the retina and in addition many chronic diseases have manifestations in the eye.
  Precision Medicine DTP - A step change in sensitivity of Raman spectroscopy for accurate and rapid analysis of living cells
  Dr A Downes, Dr H Yin
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Most methods of cell characterization require a destructive or invasive test, without any real-time readout.
  Algorithms to process brain activity over networks for clinical applications
  Dr J Escudero Rodriguez
Application Deadline: 15 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This exciting inter-disciplinary PhD project will develop mathematical and computational algorithms to analyse brain activity and brain networks with the objective to help monitor neurological conditions.
  UKRI Centre for Doctoral Training in Natural Language Processing

Funding Type

PhD Type

FOUR YEAR PHD WITH INTEGRATED TRAINING. FULLY FUNDED. SEPTEMBER 2020. Tailored doctoral training comprising both taught courses and a doctoral dissertation.
  Towards personalised coronary artery disease consideration using medical image processing and computational modelling
  Dr S Beier
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is highly interdisciplinary, and will involve working with (and extending) a suite of existing software and computational models based on clinical imaging data.
  Understanding the role that the RNA helicase UPF1 plays in sorting ribonucleoprotein (RNP) complexes and the mechanism by which this role of UPF1 might reduce cellular stress and cell degeneration.
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr S Brogna
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project’s specific objective is to study the molecular role(s) that the RNA helicase UPF1 plays in RNA processing. UPF1 is a key player in nonsense-mediated mRNA decay (NMD), it is universally conserved in eukaryotes and is essential to the development of many organisms [1].
  Information Extraction from Scientific Texts to support Nature-Inspired Engineering (EPS2020/39)
  Prof M Desmulliez
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nature has inspired various highly innovative engineering solutions, such as Velcro, the Japanese bullet train and others. Solving engineering problems using Nature requires however specific and interdisciplinary domain knowledge.
  RNA metabolism in response to cellular stress
  Dr P Grzechnik, Dr S Brogna
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of the project is to understand roles for mRNA processing during the stress response in eukaryotic cells. Exposure to acute stress reduces cell viability or fitness and therefore immediate adaption is crucial for cell survival.
  Precision Medicine DTP - Proteomic analysis of FAK function in human pancreatic cancer
  Research Group: Centre for Inflammation Research
  Dr A Serrels, Dr A Byron, Dr A von Kriegsheim
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. In the United Kingdom, the 5-year survival rate for patients with pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is just 3% (Cancer Research UK statistics), and as a result pancreatic cancer is the 4th most common cause of cancer death in the UK and US.
  Chemo-enzymatic Synthesis and Potential Applications of Novel Heterocyclic Alkaloids
  Dr H Deng, Dr L Trembleau
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.
  A structural basis for the cross-talk between histones and RNA Polymerase II
  Prof R Stefl, Dr K Kubicek, Prof S Vanacova
Application Deadline: 20 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chromatin is a highly flexible architecture in which spatially and temporally coordinated changes between structurally condensed states (transcriptionally repressive), and structurally accessible states (transcriptionally active) regulate gene expression.
  Cracking the CTD code
  Prof R Stefl, Dr K Kubicek, Dr P Plevka
Application Deadline: 20 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The concept of the CTD code that specifies the position of RNAPII in the transcriptional cycle and thus recruits specific processing factors, was suggested almost a decade ago.
  Functions of cyclin-dependent kinase 11 (CDK11) in regulation of gene expression
  Dr D Blažek, Assoc Prof Z Zdráhal, Dr P Alexiou
Application Deadline: 18 December 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.
