  Mathematical Modelling of Cancer-Cell Transmigration Through Blood Vessels
  Dr F Spill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Investigating novel epigenetic modifiers of PARP inhibition
  Dr M Higgs, Dr T Stankovic
Application Deadline: 8 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research interests/description of main research theme. Applications are invited for a 4-year fully-funded PhD Studentship starting in October 2020 in the laboratory of Dr Martin Higgs at the University of Birmingham (http://www.birmingham.ac.uk/research/cancer-genomics/research/lysine-methylation-dna-damage/index.aspx).
  Defining genomic, pharmacological and microenvironmental contexts in which to target a protein hydroxylase in cancer
  Dr M Coleman
Application Deadline: 8 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited from EU and UK students for a prestigious 4-year fully-funded CRUK PhD Studentship starting October 2020.
  Investigating the role of RNaseH2B in the response to oncogene-induced replication stress
  Dr E Petermann, Dr T Stankovic
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a 4-year fully-funded PhD Studentship starting October 2020. Replication stress is an important source of genomic instability in cancer.
  Integrated PhD in Life Sciences Doctoral Training Programme (iDTP)

Funding Type

PhD Type

Integrated PhD in Life Sciences Doctoral Training Programme (iDTP). A specialist four-year PhD programme at the University of Birmingham, open for applications for October 2020 entry.
  Cancer Research UK Birmingham Centre - Clinical and Non-Clinical PhD Fellowships

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Centre's PhD programme provides an outstanding opportunity for early career training in this dynamic, multidisciplinary environment.
  Regulation of host cell DNA damage response pathways by adenovirus
  Dr A S Turnell, Dr C McCabe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human adenoviruses are small non-enveloped viruses with a linear, double-stranded DNA genome. Adenovirus has long served as a faithful model for dissecting the molecular basis of key cellular signalling pathways that regulate fundamental biological processes such as cell growth, cell differentiation and cell death.
  Toxicological Assessment of Nanomaterials towards the development of a Nanotoxocicology Framework
  Dr H Ali-Boucetta
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The use of sophisticated delivery systems that allow the delivery and targeting of anti-cancer drugs into tumour tissue is an ever expanding area of research.
  Toxicological Assessment of Carbon Based Nanomaterials
  Dr H Ali-Boucetta
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The use of sophisticated delivery systems that allow the delivery and targeting of anti-cancer drugs into tumour tissue is an ever expanding area of research.
  Carbon Nanotubes Mediated Drug Delivery in 3D cancer models
  Dr H Ali-Boucetta
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Current treatment with anticancer drugs suffers from the drawbacks of systemic toxicity, drug resistance and limited cellular entry.
  Regulation of apoptosis-induced compensatory cell proliferation and its implications for cancer and tissue regeneration
  Dr Y Fan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In multi-cellular organisms, coordinated cell death (e.g. apoptosis) and cell replacement is critical for tissue recovery in response to stress or damage.
  Delay to diagnosis and treatment in pancreatic cancer with patients, caregivers and healthcare professionals
  Prof A Topping
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a 3-year full time self-funded PhD Studentship (part time would be considered). Patients with pancreatic cancer are commonly diagnosed with advanced disease.
  Analysing immune responses to metastatic ovarian tumours to identify therapeutic targets
  Dr J H Caamano, Dr D Withers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research interests/description of main research theme. Ovarian cancer remains the most lethal gynaecological malignancy for women over 50 years old (1).
  Investigating how ovarian tumours avoid immune responses in cancer patients
  Dr J H Caamano, Dr D Withers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research interests/description of main research theme. Ovarian cancer remains the most lethal gynaecological malignancy for women over 50 years old (1).
  Peer led storytelling intervention for individuals with cancer
  Dr A Soundy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The most recent developments in my research is the establishment and benefits of story telling for people with cancer. We have developed an intervention training package for health care professionals that needs testing.
  Metabolic control of T cell function
  Dr S Dimeloe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Current research interests in Sarah Dimeloe’s lab focus on the metabolism and interlinked immune function of T lymphocytes in health and disease.
  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.
  Targeting steroid metabolism to block colorectal cancer proliferation
  Dr P Foster, Dr L Cox
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our group is a world leader in targeting specific aspects of steroid metabolism to block cancer growth. Our research has been instrumental in the successful pre-clinical and clinical development of various novel anti-cancer compounds.
  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.
  Polo-like kinase inhibitors for targeted therapy in adrenocortical carcinoma
  Dr C L Ronchi, Dr P Foster
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type
