  Glucocorticoid regulation of NAD+ and energy metabolism in skeletal muscle ageing
  Prof G Lavery, Dr K Tsintzas
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
Glucocorticoid hormones are critical regulators of muscle energy homeostasis, and influence metabolic muscle disease contributing to age-related frailty and cardiovascular disease.
  Profiling stem cell epigenetic transitions within the Drosophila hematopoietic stem cell niche
  Dr P Badenhorst
Applications accepted all year round
The self-renewal and differentiation of stem cells is controlled by signals derived from the microenvironment or “niche”. The paired hematopoietic organs of the Drosophila genetic model organism are a well-characterized system in which the regulation of stem cell behaviour within a niche can be genetically dissected.
  Extracellular Vesicle mediated cross talk in exercise and ageing
  Dr M Whitham, Dr L Breen, Dr P Harrison
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
Research interests/description of main research theme. Exercise induces the release of a vast array of molecules into circulation and there is a growing appreciation that this represents a complex network of long-range signalling or ‘cross talk’ between organs of the body.
  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.

  Innovative biotechnologies for water purification in developing and developed countries: from bench to market
  Research Group: Water availability/cleanliness
  Dr L Orsini, Prof S Krause
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
Planet Earth is seemingly awash with water. However, only 0.3% of freshwater is available as surface water. Currently, about 40% of the world’s population live in water stressed areas, which are projected to become 50-65% of the earth surface by 2025.

  Mitochondrial quality control in skeletal muscle ageing and response to exercise
  Dr YL Lai, Prof P Atherton
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
Research interests/description of main research theme. Applications are invited for a 3-year PhD studentship, fully funded by the MRC-ARUK Centre for Musculoskeletal Ageing Research (CMAR), to work in the group of Dr.
  Analysis of pathogen determinants recognized by the hypervariable immune receptor Dscam
  Dr M Soller
Applications accepted all year round
Background. To mount an immune response, host organisms must first recognize the pathogen with which they are infected. The first line of defense against pathogen infection in animals is provided through the innate immune response.
