  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.
  Role of BTG1 and BTG2 in acute lymphocytic leukaemia and diffuse large B-cell lymphoma
  Dr G S Winkler
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Acute lymphocytic leukaemia (ALL) and diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) is often associated with small deletions of or point mutations in the highly related BTG1 or BTG2 genes.
  Clinical Genetics: Building the skull – normal and abnormal development
  Prof A Wilkie, Dr S Twigg
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Working closely with the craniofacial teams based in Oxford and other UK units, we specialise in the application of whole exome and genome sequencing to children born with a serious malformation of the skull termed craniosynostosis.
  DNA Damage and Repair: Studying DNA damage and repair to understand the causes of cancer and improve its treatment
  Prof P McHugh, Prof J Rehwinkel, Prof A Harris
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our DNA is constantly under threat from damaging agents. If unrepaired this DNA damage can lead to errors during genome duplication, including the mutations that can lead to cancer and other human diseases.
  Role of Hedgehog signalling in skeletal muscle regeneration
  Dr A G Borycki
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ability of skeletal muscle to regenerate in response to injury, exercise, growth or disease depends on a population of stem cells called satellite cells.
  Dissecting the mechanisms of antibiotic resistance in Clostridium difficile
  Dr R Fagan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antibiotic resistance in pathogenic bacteria is one of the greatest health challenges facing humanity today.
  Central Nervous system Gene therapy to treat obesity Bardet-Biedl Syndrome (BBS). Analysis of the BBS brain development
  Dr V Hernandez
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bardet-Biedl syndrome (BBS) is a debilitating, often life-limiting heritable multisystem disorder caused by dysfunction of non-motile cilia (ciliopathy).
  Egr2 and 3 mediated T cell tolerance in cancer and their impact in immune checkpoint therapy
  Dr S Li
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tumour infiltrated lymphocytes (TILs) contain tumour reactive T cells and have been used as adoptive cell transfer therapy in patients which can mediate cancer regression.
  The impact of mixed radiation and chemicals exposure on neuronal cytotoxicity, ageing and transcription
  Dr R Anderson
Application Deadline: 31 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

A 3-year funded PhD studentship is available in the College of Health and Life Sciences at Brunel University London. Project description.
  Understanding cell differentiation programs using a model progenitor cell system
  Dr M Taylor
Application Deadline: 19 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cell differentiation programs drive the production of specialised tissues from progenitor cells during animal development.
