  Investigating the function of developmental regulators in early human embryogenesis and stem cells
  Dr K Niakan
Application Deadline: 12 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 4-year PhD studentship is offered in Dr Kathy Niakan’’s Group based at the Francis Crick Institute (the Crick). This project will characterise key regulators of human embryogenesis.
  Regulation of autophagy in human embryonic stem cells and its therapeutic application in induced pluripotent stem cell-based disease models
  Dr S Sarkar
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project background. Regulation of proteostasis is critical for maintaining tissue homeostasis. Autophagy, a major intracellular degradation pathway essential for cellular and energy homeostasis, functions in the clearance of aggregation-prone proteins and damaged organelles.
  Expanded potential stem cells for regenerative medicine, immunotherapy, and biotechnology
  Prof P Liu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Embryonic stem cells (ES cells) and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS cells) are pluripotent and thus hold great promise in regenerative medicine, studying disease mechanisms and drug discovery.
  A human ’mini-gut-on-a-chip’ to study microbial-epithelial cell interactions (SAEEDU20DTP)
  Dr A Saeed, Dr M R Williams
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human organoids are 3D fragments of adult tissues and ideally conserve all of the (stem) cell types and recapitulate all of the (patho)physiological processes associated with human health and disease.
  The role of endogenous retroviruses in human health and disease
  Dr G Magiorkinis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

More than 10 years have passed since the first high quality (nearly) complete version of the human genome and we are still exploring its functionality.
  (MRC DTP) Developing a zebrafish model for a novel human neurodevelopmental disorder
  Prof G D Pavitt, Dr P Kasher, Dr S Banka
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. We have recently discovered a novel human disorder caused by mutations in the EIF5A1 gene resulting in developmental problems, small head size and craniofacial defects in children [1].
  A 3D in vitro model of wound healing incorporating skin, nerves and immune cells
  Dr A M Rajnicek, Dr H M Wilson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Diabetes, paralysis, being bed ridden and other conditions can result in chronic wounds that fail to heal, with significant personal consequences for patients and an annual cost of £4.5-5.1 billion annually (Guest et al., 2015) to the National Health Service.
  Molecular regulation of surface remodelling in the human pathogen Schistosoma mansoni
  Prof A Walker
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this PhD project you will perform cutting edge research that aims to identify molecular signalling events that underpin the survival of schistosomes in their human host.
  Defining the dynamics of lineage segregations during human neuromesodermal axial progenitor differentiation
  Dr A Tsakiridis, Dr A Fletcher
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Embryonic axis elongation is the process that gives rise to all cell types making up the body trunk.
  Regulation of T cell immunity in human barrier tissues - PhD position in Munich
  Prof C Zielinski
Application Deadline: 15 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Technical University of Munich (TUM) is one of the most renowned Universities in Europe. The research group is located in a prestigious newly built research building, TranslaTUM, which is dedicated to interdisciplinary translational research.
