  Transcriptional responses to cellular stress
  Dr PG Grzechnik
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Position for a PhD student is available in the group of Dr Pawel Grzechnik at the University of Birmingham. The aim of the project is to understand how eukaryotic cells remodel RNA biology in order to survive stress generated by pathological conditions and external stressors.
  Proteomic approach to understand mitochondrial quality control under normal and stress conditions
  Dr H Lu, Prof S Hubbard
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Defects in protein quality control lead to the accumulation of misfolded and damaged proteins, which play an important role in many diseases (e.g.
  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.
  Metabolic rewiring in liver cancer: Role of oxidative stress and the Nrf2 pathway
  Dr A. Cox
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many of the major risks factors for developing liver cancer such as alcohol, obesity, smoking and toxin exposure share in common a role for oxidative stress.
  Creating a systematic mycobacterial stress-response map
  Dr M Banzhaf
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bacterial chemical-genomics screens can quantify the impact of each gene on the fitness of the organism subjected to a large number of chemical/environmental perturbations.
  Biological role of Stress Hormones
  Dr A B Bicknell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

OVERVIEW. Our lab focuses on the biological roles of peptide hormones derived from pro-opiomelanocortin (POMC), a protein produced in the anterior pituitary gland.
  Induction of yeast prions by oxidative stress
  Prof C M Grant, Prof M Ashe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Prions are novel protein-only infectious agents associated with a group of transmissible neurodegenerative diseases typified by human Creutzfeldt Jakob Disease (CJD).
  Effects of essential aminoacid (EAA) restriction on cognitive function, ageing and neurodegeneration.
  Prof B Platt, Prof M Delibegovic
Application Deadline: 28 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The developed world is currently facing a significant increase in average lifespan, with the implication of increased age-related diseases including various cancers, dementia, and type 2 diabetes in our aged population.
  Impact of autophagy and nucleophagy deregulation in psoriasis
  Dr D Bergamaschi, Prof M Philpott
Application Deadline: 8 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic graduate with an interest in autophagy and inflammation, but also with a strong background in skin biology as well as cell and molecular biology.
  Understanding signalling networks underpinning key developmental processes during plant evolution
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr J C Coates
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants first appeared on land almost half a billion years ago. All land plants likely evolved from a single aquatic green algal ancestor.
