  Vitamin D and immunometabolism
  Prof M Hewison, Dr S Dimeloe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Vitamin D has potent anti-inflammatory and antibacterial immune effects.
  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.
  Development of novel artificial intelligence algorithms for network wide metabolic flux analysis with stable isotope tracers
  Dr C Ludwig, Dr S He
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The efficient function of the metabolic network in eukaryotic cells relies on its separation into a number of closely-linked but metabolically distinct compartments.
  Hijacking of host cellular functions and metabolism in MRSA pathogenesis
  Dr M Letek, Dr V Behrends, Dr Y Calle
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited from potential PhD candidates to work at the Department of Life Sciences, University of Roehampton, supervised by Dr Michal Letek, Dr Volker Behrends, and Dr Yolanda Calle-Patino.
  EMBL Australia Partnership PhD Program

Funding Type

PhD Type

Undertake interdisciplinary, postgraduate research for a PhD degree at Australia's top life science laboratories. Successful students will receive generous scholarships and travel grants while undertaking their PhD at an EMBL Australia laboratory in Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra or Adelaide.
  Elucidating the protein interaction network 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.
  Metabolic reprogramming and chemotherapy resistance in triple-negative breast cancer
  Dr K Brown
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Treatment options for the triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) subtype of breast cancer are limited to conventional chemotherapy agents.
  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.
  Bioengineering of bacterial CO2-concentrating system for improved photosynthesis
  Prof LN Liu, Dr D Canniffe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The single-cell photosynthetic bacteria, cyanobacteria, account for over 25% of global carbon fixation, thanks for their powerful CO2-concentrating machinery.
  Characterising and repurposing cyanobacterial CO2-fixing organelles for metabolic engineering
  Prof LN Liu, Dr J Hartwell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Compartmentalisation represents an effective strategy used by cells to enhance their activities. By creating physical barriers and compartments, cells sequester the metabolic pathways from the cellular milieu to allow controls of metabolic flux and toxic diffusion.
  Cellular protein quality control in diabetes-associated heart disease: The insight into mechanisms and therapeutic potentials
  Dr V Liu, Dr L Swanton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cardiovascular complications are the leading causes of diabetes mortality. With the exception of vascular and valvular injuries, diabetic cardiomyopathy (DCM) is a distinct myocardial disease, which is characterised by abnormal cellular metabolism and defects in organelles function, leading to impaired cardiac function.
  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].
  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.
