  Sensing, motility and information processing in brainless organisms, Biological Physics – PhD (Funded)
  Dr K Wan, Dr F Gielen
Application Deadline: 19 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University of Exeter’s College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences is inviting applications for a fully-funded PhD studentship to commence in March 2020.
  Investigation of molecular mechanisms of Intellectual disability using human-brain organoids
  Dr E Kang, Dr D Berg
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Intellectual disability (ID) is a condition characterized by significant limitation in cognitive ability and adaptive behaviours with a disease onset before adulthood.
  RNA metabolism in response to cellular stress
  Dr P Grzechnik, Dr S Brogna
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of the project is to understand roles for mRNA processing during the stress response in eukaryotic cells. Exposure to acute stress reduces cell viability or fitness and therefore immediate adaption is crucial for cell survival.
  Regulation of mitochondrial gene expression (On the University’s application portal, please select "PhD in Medical Science at the MRC Mitochondrial Biology Unit").
  Dr M Minczuk
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

MRC Mitochondrial Biology Unit. The key objective of this PhD project is to study nuclear-encoded proteins involved in mitochondrial (mt-) RNA metabolism, in order to understand how their dysfunction is linked to human mitochondrial pathologies.
  (BBSRC DTP) Optimisation of heteromeric protein complex formation via co-ordinated mRNA localisation
  Prof M Ashe, Dr M Pool, Prof C M Grant
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

RNA granules play key roles in cells controlling many aspects of mRNA fate. For instance, in response to stress the relocalisation of mRNAs to mRNA processing bodies (P-bodies) and stress granules facilitates the degradation or storage of unwanted or valuable mRNAs, respectively.
  LaNts in wound repair, stem cell activation and squamous cell carcinoma
  Dr K Hamill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Laminin N terminus proteins (LaNts) are a relatively unstudied protein family that are related to netrins and laminins. To date there are only two publications and one preprint about the LaNt proteins in the literature which means there is a massive potential to do novel, ground breaking research in this area.
  A novel silk biomaterial-based combinational approach to enhance axonal regrowth after spinal cord injury
  Dr W Huang, Prof C McCaig, Dr P Seib
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Spinal cord injury causes permanent and incurable functional impairment below the injure site. No single therapy has ever been successful, so a combined approach is much more likely to succeed.
  Determination of the function of inherited refractive error risk factor genes in the embryonic development of the eye.
  Prof L Erskine, Prof N Vargesson, Prof M Collinson
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Refractive errors, such as short-sightedness (myopia) and long-sightedness (hyperopia), are becoming epidemic, and in parts of southeast Asia around 80% of people have short-sight.
  Do rural-dwellers develop more aggressive breast and prostate cancer than those living in the city?
  Prof P Murchie, Dr Z Miedzybrodzka, Prof V Speirs, Dr R Vieira
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BACKGROUND.
  Identifying the determinants of tumour susceptibility to replication-inhibiting chemotherapy
  Prof A Donaldson, Dr S R Dundas
Application Deadline: 17 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chromosome replication and maintenance are central for cell division, and derailment of these processes is a major cause of cancer.
