  The role of protein turnover in bacterial life and death
  Prof S J Foster
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The control of protein levels in bacterial cells is essential for their growth and survival. This is an interplay between protein synthesis and turnover.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: RNA modifications: cracking the RNA code in health and disease
  Prof K Stellos, Prof I Spyridopoulos, Dr A Gatsiou, Dr S Tual-Chalot
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inflammation comprises a fundamental biological process tasked to protect our body against invasion of microorganisms (e.g virus, bacteria, etc).
  EASTBIO: Resistance in Crop Roots: Functional Analysis of the H2-Meditated Response to Nematodes
  Dr S Mantelin, Prof J Jones
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Resistance genes provide plants with protection against a range of pathogens. Despite their use in crop breeding programmes, our knowledge of how plant resistance genes function is still sketchy and mainly based on studies in leaves rather than roots.
  Unravelling the Cause of Parkinson’s Disease in Molecular Detail
  Prof MP Crump, Prof J Mason, Dr R Taylor
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Prof. Matthew Crump (School of Chemistry, University of Bristol). Dr Richard Taylor (UCB, Slough, UK). Prof. Jody Mason (Department of Biology and Biochemistry, University of Bath).
  How do antibiotics kill bacteria?
  Prof S J Foster
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite being a lynchpin of modern healthcare we still do not understand how cell wall active antibiotics such as penicillin and vancomycin kill growing bacteria, although several theories have been proposed.
  Defining novel regulators of cancer cell invasion
  Prof M Parsons, Prof J Marshall
Application Deadline: 29 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The cytoskeleton of cells is known to be essential to the behaviour of cancer cells and their ability to invade throughout the body.
  Novel Bio-Chips for real-time detection of acidification in the tumour microenvironment
  Dr P Georgiou, Dr C Bakal
Application Deadline: 22 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Novel Bio-Chips for real-time detection of acidification in the tumour microenvironment. Project Description. Cancers often return after a period of remission, and detection of these recurrences is key to begin follow-up treatments as early as possible.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Harnessing Autophagy for the Clinical benefit of Oropharyngeal Squamous Cell Carcinoma
  Prof P Lovat, Dr M Robinson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma (OPSCC) accounts for 97,000 deaths annually worldwide with an increasing incidence attributed to human papillomavirus (HPV).
  Assessing the Behaviour of Endotoxin in Biopharmaceutical Formulations: towards creating improved medicines
  Dr A Golovanov
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisors. Dr Alexander Golovanov (The University of Manchester) and Dr Adrian Podmore (AstraZeneca). Biopharmaceuticals are the fastest-growing type of treatments for wide range of diseases, with enormous potential for personalised medicine.
  (BBSRC DTP) Characterising the proteolytic network of plant cathepsin B
  Dr P Gallois, Dr A Day
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Programmed Cell Death (PCD) is a process that is critical to all organisms for development and defence against pathogens. The process of PCD in plants does not mirror what has been described in animal apoptosis and represents a novel alternative pathway still to be fully discovered.
