  Highly-diverse, synthetic gene libraries for antibody replacement technology
  Dr A Hine, Dr AJ Sutherland
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a three year Postgraduate studentship funded by the School of Life and Health Sciences and the EU H2020 FET-OPEN programme, to be undertaken within the Biosciences Research Group at Aston University.
  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.
  Identifying the evolutionary origins of the MADS-box floral quartet mechanism in seedless vascular plants
  Dr A.R.G Plackett, Dr J C Coates
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite its commonplace occurrence in today’s environment, the reproduction of plants via flowers and seeds is a recent evolutionary innovation arising from an ancestral seedless reproductive system similar to that still found in a subset of today’s plants (e.g.
  Discovering molecular genetic mechanisms of central nervous system regeneration
  Dr A Hidalgo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Is it possible to promote regeneration of the central nervous system after injury, damage or disease? During normal development, neutrons and glia interact to coordinate the generations of neutrons and glia, and direct cell migration patterns, axonal navigation, dendritic arborisation and the emergence of neural circuits.
  Molecular and genetic mechanisms of brain structural plasticity and neurodegeneration in the fruit-fly Drosophila.
  Dr A Hidalgo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The brain changes throughout life. brain plasticity enables the brain to adjust in response to experience, whereas during aging natural neurodegeneration takes over.
  Genetic analysis of the bacterial translocation machinery
  Dr D Huber
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Every subcellular compartment in a cell contains proteins, and yet all of these proteins are initially synthesised in the same compartment.
  Build and destroy: investigating targeted protein degradation in plant development and stress-response
  Dr D Gibbs
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In order to effectively co-ordinate their growth and development, plants need to be able to respond to changes in their environment, whether it is adapting to the seasons or coping with stresses.
  Understanding signalling networks underpinning key developmental processes during plant evolution
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr J C Coates
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants first appeared on land almost half a billion years ago. All land plants likely evolved from a single aquatic green algal ancestor.
  Determining novel molecular regulators of necrosis controlling premature cell death
  Dr Y Fan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Necrosis, a form of premature cell death, is frequently caused by excessive insults such as trauma, infection and toxins. It has been implicated in many human diseases including cancer, neurodegenerative disorders and inflammatory diseases.
  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.
  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).
  Investigating the influence of polyploidy on the evolution of a major human fungal pathogen
  Dr E Ballou
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The human fungal pathogen Cryptococcus neoformans undergoes an unusual morphological transition from haploid yeast to highly polyploid Titan cells during infection of the human host.
  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

PhD Type

Adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) is a rare cancer with a generally poor prognosis and partially unknown pathogenesis.
  Biodiversity conservation ex situ or in situ with a focus on genetic diversity.
  Dr N Maxted
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Field studies, ecogeography, geographic information systems and estimation of patterns of genetic diversity, IUCN taxonomic and genetic threat assessment will help elucidate conservation strategies and taxonomic clarity of critically endanged plant species.
