  Genome-wide responses to stress
  Dr J Mata
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are interested in gene regulation in responses to stress, using both simple model organisms, human and plant pathogens. Cells respond to stress conditions by launching complex programs of gene expression, both transcriptional and posttranscriptional, and which are often closely linked with each other.
  Molecular mechanism of innate immunity mediated by the Toll/IL1 receptor signalling pathways.
  Prof N J Gay
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This group participates in the Wellcome Trust 4 year PhD programme in Developmental biology., MRC and BBSRC Doctoral Training Programmes.
  Regulation of virulence and biofilm formation by quorum sensing and the "stress alarmone" ppGpp in gram-negative pathogenic bacteria.
  Dr M Welch
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are investigating the complex interplay between cell-cell signalling (quorum sensing), microbial lifestyle (i.e., free-living planktonic cultures vs sessile biofilm communities), growth phase and virulence in gram-negative bacteria.
  Small G proteins and their effectors as therapeutic targets in cancer
  Dr D Owen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

For the majority of cancers the acquisition of invasive and metastatic characteristics leads to incurable disease in the host.
  Structure, regulation and dynamics of small G proteins and their interactions with membranes and effector proteins
  Dr H Mott
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our lab are interested in cell signalling via small G proteins of the Ras superfamily. We use a range of biochemical, biophysical and structural approaches to understand these fascinating proteins, which are involved in multiple cellular processes and are often deregulated in diseases such as cancer.
  Understanding how the NuRD complex regulates 3D genome organization using a combination of single-molecule super-resolution imaging and single cell biology
  Prof E D Laue
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The spatial organisation of the genome is known to play an important role in regulating RNA transcription to effect cell-type-specific gene expression programs, and to control the differentiation of embryonic stem (ES) cells.
  Repurposing Existing Drugs as Cancer Therapies
  Dr J Brenton
Application Deadline: 30 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The extraordinary genomic complexity of copy-number aberration in high grade serous ovarian carcinoma (HGSOC) has prevented effective molecular stratification in the clinic.
  Neurotransmitter gated channels - relating structure to function
  Prof S C R Lummis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The 5-HT3 receptor is a member of the family of neurotransmitter gated ion channels that includes nicotinic acetylcholine, GABA and glycine receptors.
  PhD studentship (Sponsored by TWI Ltd and Lancaster University) - Digital Process Iteration human-robot for improved brazing safety and productivity NSIRC240
  Mr N Ludford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Brazing is a well-established manufacturing process for a range of different safety critical components, however, a number steps are still operator dependent.
  Clonal and cell state heterogeneity in breast cancer xenografts
  Prof C Caldas
Application Deadline: 30 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Members of the Caldas research team have developed a biobank of patient-derived breast cancer xenografts (Bruna et al, Cell 2016) that represent the inter- and intra-tumour heterogeneity of human breast cancers (Curtis et al, Nature 2012; Pereira et al, Nat Commun 2016; Rueda et al, Nature 2019).
