  Deciphering a novel anti-ageing epigenetic programme
  Dr G Poulin, Prof A Sharrocks
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over two decades of intense research in the field of epigenetics have produced compelling evidence that chromatin modifications are crucial for processes such as DNA repair, transcription, splicing, mitosis, meiosis, and in the preservation of the epigenetic memory of cells.
  Understanding regulation of gene expression during development via an integrated computational analysis of ‘omics data
  Prof S Hubbard, Prof S Griffiths-Jones, Dr M Baron
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Embryonic development requires exquisite control of the expression of large numbers of genes, integrating components from the genome, transcriptome and proteome.
  Intronic gene silencing: new mechanism of gene expression regulation and its relevance to cancer
  Dr M Gullerova
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mammalian cells employ small RNAs (sRNAs) molecules to regulate gene expression in a pathway known as RNA interference (RNAi). Transfer RNAs (tRNAs) are essential for translation but also serve as a source for tRNA-derived small RNAs (tsRNAs).
  FGFR signalling in breast cancer
  Dr A Chioni
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Growth factors are used during development to convey messages that tell cells to divide, survive, migrate and adopt a particular fate.
  The role of long noncoding RNAs in cell division and genome stability
  Dr L Stojic, Dr S McClelland
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our group studies the biology of long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) and their roles in cell division and maintenance of genome stability.
  Basal stem cells in the lung and their recognition of dying cells
  Prof T Hussell, Dr N Fujino
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Stem cell division and differentiation is critical for barrier repair following inflammation, but the initial trigger for this process is unknown.
  Microtubule motors in cell migration and integrin trafficking
  Prof V Allan, Prof P Woodman, Dr P Caswell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cell migration is vital for the development and health of multicellular organisms. However, enhanced cell migration is also a hallmark of cancer cells, and contributes greatly to metastasis.
  Stress regulation of protein translation: role in cancer and neurodegeneration
  Dr A J Whitmarsh, Prof M Ashe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cells are subjected to a range of stresses that include physical injury, changes in oxygen levels or temperature, nutrient deprivation, radiation and infection.
  The functions of the Class II Pi3-kinase signals in vivo
  Dr L MacDougall, Dr M Baron
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Phosphoinositide lipids (PIPs) play critical roles in development and the homeostasis of adult tissues and their dysfunction has been linked to major human diseases such as cancer, diabetes, myopathies and neuropathies.
  Non-coding RNA regulation of stem cells
  Dr S Brown, Dr P Gokhale
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Stem cells have the potential to make any cell type in the Human body and are powerful tools in drug discovery (Xia and Wong, 2012).
