  Understanding how the NuRD complex regulates 3D genome organization using a combination of single-molecule super-resolution imaging and single cell biology
  Prof E D Laue
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.
  (BBSRC DTP) Development of anti-cancer agents and biomarkers that target intrinsically disordered regions of transcription factors and protein kinases
  Prof J Waltho, Dr A Almond
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The controlled manipulation of transcription factors, protein kinases and protein phosphatases is central to improving our understanding of cellular processes and, importantly, in the development of next-generation therapeutics for a variety of cancers.
  Effects of transcription on genome stability
  Prof N J Savery
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Transcription-coupled DNA repair (TCR) pathways prioritise the repair of certain lesions in "active" genes. These pathways help maintain genome integrity throughout the lifetime of multi-cellular organisms, and thus help prevent the occurrence of mutation that might cause cancer or other disorders.
  Precision Medicine DTP - Dissecting the biophysics of ocular transcription factors in vivo
  Research Group: MRC Human Genetics Unit
  Dr D Papadopoulos, Prof W Bickmore, Prof V Vukojevic
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Of the ~1,600 human TF genes, up to ~25% (~400 genes) are expected to be haploinsufficient with a plethora of them leading to developmental disorders1, underlining that transcription factor (TF) abundance (dosage) plays a major role during cell and tissue specification.
  Replication and transcription machinery collisions in Escherichia coli.
  Dr M Hawkins, Prof M Leake
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

DNA duplication is essential for life but replication forks can be blocked when. they collide with proteins bound to DNA. Exactly how multiple rescue.
  BBSRC EASTBIO PhD Programme: Uncovering molecular details of regulation of the mRNA capping enzymes in gene expression
  Dr A Pisliakov, Prof V Cowling
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

This 4 year PhD project is part of a competition funded by EASTBIO BBSRC Doctoral Training Partnership http://www.eastscotbiodtp.ac.uk/how-apply-0.
  SWBio DTP PhD project: Amyloid Transcription Block Survival - Deriving Functionally Active Peptide Inhibitors of Amyloidosis and Toxicity
  Prof J Mason
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the South West Biosciences Doctoral Training Partnership (SWBio DTP).
  BBSRC SWBio DTP studentship: Analysis of Gene Interactions in Neurodegeneration
  Dr M Taylor, Prof A Rosser
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The striatum is a key component of the basal ganglia in the forebrain. One of its important roles is in the control of voluntary movement.
  BBSRC SWBio DTP studentship: Regulation of stem cell biology by RNA-binding proteins during fly development
  Dr S Lopez de Quinto, Prof H White-Cooper
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Although transcription is the first step in eukaryotic gene expression, many post-transcriptional events determine the final fate of RNA molecules and impose additional complexity to gene expression.
  Using synthetic biology to understand the evolution of antibiotic resistance
  Dr M Lagator, Dr C Knight
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Imagine an architect, tasked with converting an old stadium into a building with a different function, without demolishing it.
