  Characterisation of cell death pathways upon activation of the endoplasmic reticulum stress sensor IRE1alpha
  Dr M Schroeder
Application Deadline: 20 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

A competition-funded Durham Doctoral studentship to investigate cell death pathways activated by endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress is available in the group of Dr.
  Metabolic reprogramming in cancer: starving tumors of essential nutrients to promote cell death
  Dr S Papa
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

All the cells in our bodies are programmed to die. As they get older, our cells accumulate toxic molecules that make them sick. In response, they eventually break down and die, clearing the way for new, healthy cells to grow.
  Inhibiting cell metabolism to enhance tumour cell death
  Dr C Bubici, Dr S Papa
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

As you read this, millions of your cells from your body are dying. Do not panic – this is not bad news. Most of them are either superfluous or potentially harmful, so you are better off without them.
  (BBSRC DTP) Understanding the role of RNA binding proteins in the regulation of NF-kappa B dynamics, inflammation and cell death
  Prof M White, Dr A P Gilmore, Prof S Griffiths-Jones, Dr M Muldoon
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

NF-kB is a key signalling system that controls inflammation and cell fate, dysregulation of which can lead to inflammatory disease or cancer.
  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.
  The role of protein turnover in bacterial life and death
  Prof S J Foster
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The control of protein levels in bacterial cells is essential for their growth and survival. This is an interplay between protein synthesis and turnover.
  MRC DTP 4 Year PhD Programme: Understanding the difference between inflammasome activation in neutrophils and macrophages
  Dr G Sollberger, Prof S Arthur
Application Deadline: 11 January 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”.
  An ancient transcription factor controlling cuticle development and water transport in the liverwort Marchantia polymorpha
  Research Group: Institute of Molecular Plant Sciences
  Dr W J Goodrich, Dr C Kidner
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We identified a basic helix loop helix transcription factor (called ZOU) which is specifically expressed in the endosperm of seed in flowering plants.

  Autoimmunity against TNF and its role in inflammatory diseases
  Dr S Jiang, Dr N Burgess-Brown
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

THE PROJECT. Tumour Necrosis Factor (TNF) is a pro-inflammatory cytokine. It regulates a complex signalling network able to trigger cell survival, as well as cell death via apoptosis or necrosis/necroptosis.
