  Mapping the circadian clock-dependent regulation of the secretory pathway
  Prof K E Kadler, Dr Q-J Meng
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The protein secretory pathway in cells comprises a series of membranous compartments and transport vesicles that the cell uses to synthesise, post-translationally modify, and move proteins for delivery to the plasma membrane or for secretion to the extracellular matrix.
  Transcription factors mediating light input to the Arabidopsis circadian clock
  Dr P Devlin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The circadian clock is tightly tied to the light environment. Transcriptional feedback loops are able to generate a self-sustaining rhythm of approximately 24 hours which impinges on almost every aspect of physiology in higher organisms.
  (BBSRC DTP) The role of clock dysfunction in obesity-related inflammation and insulin resistance
  Dr D Bechtold, Dr S Cruickshank, Dr I Iqbal
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Obesity is one of the biggest challenges to public health in the UK and across much of the world. The major threat is in obesity-related metabolic disturbances, which drive insulin resistance, type-2 diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.
  Rhythmic control of energy balance - to understand how our internal clocks regulate energy metabolism
  Dr D Bechtold, Prof D Ray
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

24-hour rhythms are present in virtually all aspects of our behaviour and physiology. These rhythms are underpinned by circadian clocks that run throughout the body, and act within each tissue to orchestrate many organ functions and rhythmic activities (e.g.
