  PhD in evolutionary biology - examining the evolution of interactions between species
  Prof R Freckleton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Evolutionary biology is underpinned by models for the evolution of species and their traits. The growing body of phylogenetic information, as well as increases in computational power allows us to develop and test novel models and theories of evolution.
  Analysis of the role of Hypoxia Inducibe Factor pathway in radioprotection
  Dr F Van Eeden
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hypoxia inducible factor (HIF) is highly important in human health and disease, as is testified by the 2019 Nobel prize for Medicine or Physiology.
  BBSRC White Rose DTP Studentship - What are the molecular events that cause wound-induced muscle contraction?
  Dr H Roehl, Prof I A Hope
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many animals possess a remarkable ability to regenerate organs after extensive damage. It is hoped that by studying these species we may learn the mechanisms that enable regeneration.
  Characterisation of the role of the adhesion protein tensin 3 in breast cancer progression
  Dr E Rainero
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Breast cancer arises from the transformation of mammary epithelial cells. In the healthy tissue, these grow as a single monolayer of cells delimiting an internal hollow lumen 2.
  Elucidating the signalling pathways important for antibody production and secretion in CHO cells
  Dr A Peden, Dr M Collins
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Constitutive secretion is a fundamental cellular process required for the delivery of newly synthesised proteins and lipids to the cell surface as well as the exocytosis of physiologically important molecules such as antibodies, cytokines and extracellular matrix proteins.
  Identification of the molecular pathways that guide zebrafish regeneration.
  Dr H Roehl
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The study of regenerative biology aims to elucidate the innate ability of organisms to replace tissues or organs after they have been removed or damaged.
  Investigating the mechanobiological mechanisms of cancer
  Dr K Erdmann
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer is the second-leading cause for death globally and there is a high demand for novel approaches to understand and treat cancer.
  Investigating the role of the protease ADAMTS5 in ovarian cancer
  Dr E Rainero
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ovarian cancer is the most lethal gynaecological malignancy. Mostly because of late stage diagnosis, the 5-year survival rate is.
  Modelling a myelination disorder in the zebrafish: drug discovery and gene editing
  Prof T T Whitfield
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Adhesion G protein-coupled receptors (aGPCRs) have exciting potential as therapeutic targets for drug discovery. The aGPCR Adgrg6 (Gpr126) has a conserved role in myelination of the vertebrate peripheral nervous system, and is of considerable clinical interest.
  modelling skeletal dysplasias in zebrafish.
  Dr H Roehl, Dr M Balasubramanian
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Whole genome sequencing studies have led to a vast amount of new candidate genes for human diseases.
