  Plant responses to stress, metabolites for health and fuel from cell walls.
  Prof A Devoto
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Projects are available in the following areas. Stress responses in crops and sustainable biomass production and processing. The project aims at elucidating several aspects of the control of plant defences and to identify environmentally friendly forms of plant protectants, leading to enhanced crop yields.
  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.
  (MRC CASE) Methods for non-invasive sampling and detection of exhaled breath aldehydes as markers of oxidative stress.
  Dr S Fowler, Prof P Barran
Application Deadline: 14 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Aldehydes are end-products of lipid peroxidation, and hence represent potential markers of oxidative stress, produced via generation of alkoxyl radicals.
  Development of stimuli-responsive metallosupramolecular architectures for sensing and/or delivery of medicine for the treatment of solid tumours
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr D Petty, Dr M Najafzadeh, Dr S Pike
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a new self-funded PhD opportunity in the School of Chemistry & Biosciences at the University of Bradford.
  The mechanism of regulation of protein synthesis via eIF2 molecular complexes
  Dr A Roseman, Prof G D Pavitt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Control of protein synthesis is critical for normal metabolism, development and responses to stress. One major pathway is called the integrated stress response (ISR) and centres on translational control of the general protein synthesis factor eIF2B via the phosphorylation of eIF2 [1,2].
  Finite element modelling of heart valve deformation and mitral regurgitation after mitraclip implantation - Ref: LG2UF2018
  Dr L Zhao
Application Deadline: 3 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

he mitral valve (MV) is a complex structure regulating forward flow of blood between the left atrium (LA) and left ventricle (LV) of human heart.
  Repairing DNA Damage in Response to BRAF Mutation
  Dr C McCabe, Prof G Stewart
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are the leading thyroid cancer research group in the UK; we work on other neoplasias as well, including breast and head and neck etc.
  (MRC CASE) Aptamer biosensors to measure health via PAR dynamics in living cells
  Prof S Taylor, Prof P Townsend
Application Deadline: 14 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

We live in an era of ‘precision health and wellness’. Each and every one of us are different and the manner in which we age, live or become ill is unique, but predicting an individual’s fate is notoriously difficult.
  Multitasking abilities – Are computerised laboratory tasks predictive of real-world tasks?
  Dr A Szameitat, Dr A Parton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Multitasking, i.e. the concurrent performance of two or more tasks, has been investigated in many different domains. In Cognitive Psychology, experimental paradigms such as the task switching paradigm or the dual-task paradigm of the Psychological Refractory Period (PRP) are the most widely used multitasking paradigms.
  How to fix a broken heart - The next frontier: from cell to cage side treatment
  Dr D Connolly, Prof D Werling, Dr J Dudhia
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Dilated Cardiomyopathy (DCM) is a common and serious disease, which imposes a significant welfare burden in dogs. DCM is particularly well characterise in Dobermans where a 58.8% cumulative prevalence has been identified in European lines.
