  Cancer Research UK Birmingham Centre - Clinical PhD Studentship
  Prof B Willcox, Prof G Middleton
Application Deadline: 14 March 2019
Applications are invited for a Clinical PhD studentship at the Cancer Research UK (CRUK) Birmingham Centre.
  Dynamic interplay of cell shape and tumour evolution
  Dr F Spill, Prof I Tomlinson
Applications accepted all year round
Tumour cells are long known to appear in vastly diverse shapes, both across patients and within a single tumour. This is in stark contrast to the regularity of cell shapes of healthy epithelial tissues from which most tumours originate.
  Mathematical Modelling of Cancer-Cell Transmigration Through Blood Vessels
  Dr F Spill
Applications accepted all year round
Cancer rarely kills through the primary tumour in which cancer arises, e.g. the prostate in prostate cancer. Instead, cancer cells may travel through the vasculature and colonialize distant organs – a process termed metastasis.
  Transcriptional responses to cellular stress
  Dr PG Grzechnik
Applications accepted all year round
Position for a PhD student is available in the group of Dr Pawel Grzechnik at the University of Birmingham. The aim of the project is to understand how eukaryotic cells remodel RNA biology in order to survive stress generated by pathological conditions and external stressors.
  Role of replication machinery disassembly in cancer development and treatment
  Research Group: Cancer research
  Dr A Gambus, Dr C Palles
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
Our recent work provided the first insights into the mechanism of replication machinery (replisome) unloading at the termination of DNA replication, making use of Xenopus laevis egg extract, which provides a simple cell-free system that recapitulates DNA replication.

  A high-throughput sugar-recognition immunoassay for early and accurate prostate cancer
  Research Group: Cancer research
  Dr P Mendes, Dr M Drayson
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
Prostate cancer is one of the most common types of cancer in men and claims over 350,000 lives worldwide every year. Early and accurate detection is critical to improve patient survival.

  Targeting hypoxic gliomas through their mitochondrial metabolic network
  Dr D Tennant, Prof C Watts
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
Applications are invited for a 3-year fully-funded PhD studentship starting in October 2019, supervised jointly by Dr Daniel Tennant and Professor Colin Watts.
  mRNA epigenetics: Charaterization of a novel layer of gene regulation for essential brain functions
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr M Soller, Dr PG Grzechnik
Applications accepted all year round
For over 40 years we know about modified nucleotides in mRNA, but the functions for these essential modifications are largely elusive.
