  Exploiting the true joint progenitor cell for articular cartilage repair
  Prof D Chan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Articular cartilage facilitates the frictionless motion of synovial joints. However, once damaged from trauma or excessive loading in daily use, repair is very poor leading to osteoarthritis (OA), a huge medical and social burden.
  Our Mission: to Educate, Nurture and Discover for the benefit of Human Health

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our ultimate purpose is to work in service of patients. RCSI was founded by Royal Charter on 11th February 1784, to set and support professional standards for surgical training and practice in Ireland.
  Functional analysis of novel genes important in the physiology and pathogenesis of the human pathogen Campylobacter jejuni
  Prof D J Kelly
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Campylobacter jejuni and E. coli are the commonest cause of human bacterial gastroenteritis worldwide. Although pathogenic in humans, C.
  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.
  Development of a three dimensional in vitro model of the human cornea to dissect the inflammatory events associated with sight-threatening ocular pathogens
  Dr C Dobson, Dr C Maldonado-Codina, Prof P Morgan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The presence of microbes at the corneal surface may trigger low grade discomfort through to acute eye infection and permanent loss of vision.
  Prebiotics and synbiotics for human health - converting biomass into functional food ingredients
  Prof R Rastall
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Prof. Rastall is interested in research in the area of prebiotic oligosaccharides, synbiotic combinations with probiotics and the impact of structure on the gut fermentation of carbohydrates.
  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.
  Creating “super” regulatory T cells to combat rejection, GVHD and autoimmunity through retroviral gene manipulation
  Dr N Jones, Dr S Lee
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research interests/description of main research theme. Foxp3+CD25+CD4+ regulatory T cells (Treg) have been shown to be essential for the induction of tolerance to foreign organ transplants in experimental models.
  3D shape reconstruction of deformable objects for biomechanics applications
  Dr A Drory
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for an exciting fully-funded PhD studentship in the Bioengineering Research Group, Faculty of Engineering at the University of Nottingham.
  Gene Regulatory Networks in Development and Disease
  Dr T Sauka-Spengler
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

  Genome mining of novel antimicrobial and antiviral natural products from new bacterial strains
  Dr H Deng, Dr R Ebel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is rising to dangerously high levels in all parts of the world. In Europe alone, drug-resistant bacteria are estimated to cause 25,000 deaths annually and cost more than US$1.5 billion every year in healthcare expenses and productivity losses.
  Deciphering the Built Environment Microbiome (Ref: ET20/HLS/APP/SHERRY)
  Dr A Sherry
Application Deadline: 1 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The impact that the construction of new dwellings has on our rural and urban environments is still in its infancy. Understanding this is of the utmost importance as the UK government has pledged to build half a million homes between 2020 and 2022 to meet the demand of a growing population.
  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.
  The role of bone marrow fat in advance prostate cancer using bioengineered humanised models
  Dr N Bock
Application Deadline: 1 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

SYNOPSIS. This highly innovative PhD project focuses on one of the key challenges in the fields of cancer research and translational medicine, which is to ‘make the mouse organism more human’.
