Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The spatial organisation of the genome is known to play an important role in regulating RNA transcription to effect cell-type-specific gene expression programs, and to control the differentiation of embryonic stem (ES) cells.

  Dr C Francavilla, Prof S Hubbard
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background and goals. Cells respond appropriately to their surroundings by activating plasma membrane spanning receptors like Receptor Tyrosine Kinases (RTKs) and thereby adapting long-term outputs (e.g.

  Dr S Kourmpetli, Dr L Bell
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. Umbelliferae species flower and set seed over a period of about 6 weeks depending on weather conditions.
  Deep Learning / Bioinformatics Approach for Protein-Protein Interaction Prediction
  Dr JC Nebel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Since most molecular processes rely on protein–protein interactions PPIs), knowledge of those interactions is extremely valuable for biomedical research and drug design.
  ESRC PhD Studentship: Improving respiratory care via statistical modelling of multiple sources of data
  Prof J Knight, Dr F Dondelinger
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Data science and statistics are rapidly transforming the face of health care and are leading to efficiency increases in prevention, diagnosis and treatment for a multitude of diseases.
  Interactive eating (HCI, Interaction Design)
  Prof F Mueller
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

PhD opening (HCI, Interaction Design). around the body, technology and play in the Exertion Games Lab, Melbourne, Australia. The Exertion Games Lab (exertiongameslab.org) in Melbourne, Australia, is seeking exceptional PhD and Post-Doc candidates to research novel interfaces around digital play.
  Developing Robust Visual Recognition Frameworks using Synthetic Data (Application Ref: SF19/EE/CIS/HO)
  Dr E Ho, Dr H Shum
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Deep Learning is one of the major research themes across different areas in scientific research. With the promising performance and results presented over the last few years, deep learning algorithms are dominating a lot of data-driven tasks in visual recognition.
  Overcoming the penetration depth limitations of optical coherence tomography in clinical dentistry using full electromagnetic wave computer models
  Dr P H Tomlins, Dr R Donnan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. In healthcare, imaging is one of the most important diagnostic tools available. Deep tissue imaging is usually achieved using either ionising X-Ray radiation, MRI which is expensive or ultrasound, which has low resolution.
  Enhancing radiotherapy sensitisation and improving cancer control by modulating tumour microenvironment derived angiocrine signalling
  Prof K Hodivala-Dilke, Dr S Boulton
Application Deadline: 16 March 2020

  (WIS) Deciphering escape from senescence in vivo
  Prof P Townsend, Prof A D Whetton
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Senescence is a dynamic cellular state characterised by a prolonged and generally irreversible cell-cycle arrest that promotes tissue remodelling but it can also have detrimental implications on regenerative capacities of tissues and conduce to inflammation and the progression of ageing-related disease including cancer.
  Building the human endometrium in vitro: The role of macrophages in receptive and decidual endometrium to optimise reproductive health
  Dr E Mann, Dr Peter Ruane, Prof J Aplin, Dr L Mohiyiddeen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The human endometrium is a highly dynamic tissue that rapidly generates over ~20 days and differentiates to form a uterus lining receptive to embryo implantation, further transforming into decidua to support embryonic development, or breaking down before regenerating a few days later.
  Understanding the gene regulatory landscape of embryonic stem cells and cancer cells
  Prof A Sharrocks, Prof M Rattray
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cell identity is ultimately determined through decoding the genome through the action of gene regulatory mechanisms. In particular, sculpting of the chromatin landscape to reveal unique configurations of gene regulatory elements in each cell type is a major driver of cell identity.
