  Evolution of Reproductive traits - to elucidate the genetic and developmental basis of reproductive failure
  Dr N Hemmings
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sexual selection is underpinned by variation in reproductive success. Our research group studies the mechanisms underpinning this variation, primarily using birds as a model.
  Etiology, assessment and treatment of scoliosis
  Prof K Cheung
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Scoliosis is an abnormal curvature of the spine that can be present in 3-4% of the population. If left untreated, some can progress to lead to back pain, shortness of breath and severe deformities.
  Scoliosis research and outcomes
  Dr J Cheung
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis is the commonest form of spinal deformity in the paediatric population. Without proper treatment, these curves may deteriorate and lead to cosmetic disfigurement, back pain, and cardiopulmonary compromise.
  Unravelling the mechanism of viral factory formation. An unexplored target for the development of novel antivirals (fully funded PhD).
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Dr A Calabrese
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Viral replication factories (sites of viral replication/assembly) are formed when a number of important human and animal pathogens infect cells, including influenza, rabies, measles and rotavirus.
  Protein Misfolding and the Molecular Basis of Alzheimer’s Disease
  Dr J Viles
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. World-wide one in three people over the age of 65 will die with Alzheimer’s Disease (AD). The disease is characterised by deposits of amyloid plaques and fibrils of amyloid-beta peptide (Ab) are their main constituent.
  Investigating the mechanobiological mechanisms of cancer
  Dr K Erdmann
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer is the second-leading cause for death globally and there is a high demand for novel approaches to understand and treat cancer.
  A mechanistic understanding of allosteric regulation of neuronal sodium-activated potassium channels
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr J D Lippiat, Dr S Muench, Dr A Kalli
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The sodium-activated potassium channel KNa1.1 (KCNT1, Slack, Slo2.2) is found in neurons and couples sodium influx to excitability.
  An integrated approach to the study of cellular interactions with amyloid
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Dr E W Hewitt, Prof S E Radford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The formation of insoluble amyloid fibrils is associated with a spectrum of human disorders, the amyloidoses, which include Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, type 2 diabetes and dialysis related amyloidosis (DRA).
  Defining a novel assembly pathway in ssRNA viruses using X-ray footprinting.
  Prof P G Stockley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project co-supervised by Prof. Peter Stockley at Leeds and Prof. Reidun Twarock at University of York, as part of the White Rose network "Structural and Mechanistic Biology at the RNA/Ligand Interface".
  Enhancing stability of biocatalyst for fuel cells and bioelectrocatalysis
  Prof L J C Jeuken, Dr P Beales
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Progress in biotechnology over the last two decades has greatly increased the use of biocatalyst in the industrial production of fine chemicals.
