  Fueling chemotherapy resistance in triple-negative breast cancer
  Dr K Brown
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) is a molecularly heterogeneous group of diseases defined by the lack of estrogen receptor (ER), progesterone receptor (PR) and absence of human epidermal growth factor receptor-2 (HER2) amplification.
  Investigating the requirements of pro-inflammatory signaling in skin and head & neck Squamous Cell Carcinomas
  Dr C Darido
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Squamous cell carcinomas (SCC) are amongst the most common cancer types afflicting man. SCCs most frequently arise from stratified squamous epithelia such as the epidermis or the mucosae of the head and neck.
  Mechanisms of regulating gene expression via selective mRNA transport
  Dr V Wickramasinghe, Prof R. Pearson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A critical step in the gene expression pathway that is altered in cancer is nuclear export of mRNA. We have demonstrated that mRNA export is not constitutive, but highly selective and can regulate distinct biological processes through poorly understood mechanisms.
  Metabolic rewiring in liver cancer: Role of oxidative stress and the Nrf2 pathway
  Dr A. Cox
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many of the major risks factors for developing liver cancer such as alcohol, obesity, smoking and toxin exposure share in common a role for oxidative stress.
  Predicting the development of oral cancer
  Dr C Darido
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human head and neck cancer is a devastating disease with poor survival rates.
  Unravelling the oncogenic activities of serum- and glucocorticoid-regulated kinase 1 (SGK1)
  Dr K Brown
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI3K) pathway is a master regulator of numerous cellular phenotypes associated with cancer including cell survival, proliferation, growth, altered metabolism and malignant transformation.
  Fostering development of ‘smart’, responsive therapeutics against cancer-related microRNAs.
  Dr E Bichenkova, Prof D Clarke, Dr H Aojula
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Short functional non-coding microRNAs are implicated in many types of cancer, and thus can be used as biological targets for development of more selective and powerful anticancer therapies.
  A novel therapeutic targeting the inflammasome as a treatment for glaucoma.
  Dr V McGilligan, Dr S Atkinson, Prof C Willoughby
Application Deadline: 7 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Glaucoma is the leading cause of irreversible blindness and is a global problem that affects over 60 million people. Unfortunately, there is no cure for this disease and, with the rapidly expanding aging population, the number of people diagnosed with glaucoma is predicted to exceed 100 million by 2040.
  PhD in Chemical Biology -- Neuropeptide Research -- University of Vienna
  Prof M Muttenthaler
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neuropeptides are key mediators in many biological functions and understanding their interaction with target proteins is fundamental to unravel the underlying mechanism of diseases.
  Biosensors for Forensic Analysis - 4 Year PHD Studentship
  Research Group: School of Population Health & Environmental Sciences
  Dr N Frascione, Dr J Gooch
Application Deadline: 14 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Forensic Biochemistry group within the School of Population Health & Environmental Sciences is seeking an exceptional and highly motivated early career researcher with a strong background in analytical science, forensic science or biochemistry to undertake a fully funded PhD studentship in the development of biosensors for the detection and identification of body fluids.
