Background. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are short non-coding RNAs ~22 nt in length that function as important regulators of gene expression1.

  Actin regulation of nuclear mechanics during DNA repair
  Dr C Toseland
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In eukaryotic cells, the nucleus houses the genomic material and transcription machinery that allows the cell to develop and perform its role.
  Oncogenic mechanisms causing malignant transformation of lymphoid cells
  Prof U Klein
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancers of B cells and plasma cells, lymphomas and multiple myeloma, can be very aggressive, and often the cancer rapidly reoccurs after standard therapy.
  MRC DTP 4 Year PhD Programme: Uncovering molecular details of regulation of the mRNA capping enzymes in gene expression
  Dr A Pisliakov, Prof V Cowling
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is offered as part of the University of Dundee 4-year MRC DTP Programme “Quantitative and Interdisciplinary approaches to biomedical science”.
  PhD in Chemical Biology -- Neuropeptide Research -- University of Vienna
  Prof M Muttenthaler
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neuropeptides are key mediators in many biological functions and understanding their interaction with target proteins is fundamental to unravel the underlying mechanism of diseases.
  Unravelling the mysteries of retinoid signalling
  Dr E Pohl, Prof J Endicott
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Retinoids, such as all-trans-retinoic acid (ATRA), are a class of endogenous molecules derived from Vitamin A. These compounds control a wide range of cellular processes in chordates, including differentiation, proliferation and apoptosis, by binding one or more of related transcriptional receptors in the cell nucleus.
  What is the significance of MCT1 distribution to a novel subcellular location (nucleus) for cancer progression?
  Dr A Latif, Prof K Williams, Dr A Hurlstone
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

MCT1 is a transmembrane protein involved in cell metabolism and mediates transport of monocarboxylates (such as pyruvate {a metabolic substrate} and lactate {a metabolic by product}) in and out of the cell.
  Investigation of DNA/RNA Instability in Neurological Disease
  Prof S El-Khamisy, Dr G Hautbergue, Dr F Van Eeden
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our genome is constantly threatened by environmental and endogenous stressors. One consequence of this threat is the formation of the rather unusual nucleic acid structures involving a duplex DNA and RNA, called DNA/RNA hybrids (R-loops).
