An emerging, exciting area of research is that of membrane contact site (MCS) biology.
  Ants as ecosystem engineers: the interaction between niche construction and land management
  Dr EJH Robinson, Dr K Redeker, Dr C Hawke
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are looking for an enthusiastic and ambitious student to develop an exciting. project that will use applied field experiments to quantify the relationship.
  Application of machine learning to establish epigenetic regulators in breast and bladder epithelial tissue
  Dr AN Holding, Prof J Southgate
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Epigenetics. modifications to DNA and histones that change the expression. of genes but do not alter the code of the genes, are critical to the.
  Behavioural Mechanisms Driving Collective Smothering in Hens
  Dr D Franks, Dr EJH Robinson
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding the qualities of captive environments that cause abnormal behaviour has been a major topic in animal welfare. However, smothering - a type of abnormal behaviour in hens - has received little study to date.
  Biochemical mechanism controlling bacterial evasion of human inflammasome
  Dr D Boucher, Dr M van der Woude
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Your body is constantly targeted by pathogens like Salmonella, a food-borne. pathogen. Immune cells recognize and protect your body against infections.
  Caught in a Venus flytrap: investigating the segregation dynamics of a multidrug resistance plasmid
  Dr D Barilla, Dr M Hawkins
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bacterial multidrug resistance is a growing burden on human health worldwide. Large, low copy number plasmids carrying resistance genes shuttle easily from cell to cell in bacterial populations, causing intra-species and inter-species spreading of antibiotic resistance.

  Dr HJ Chen, Dr M Plevin
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

RNA-binding proteins (RBPs) play an important role in the neuronal system. Dysregulation of RBPs caused by cellular stress or disrupted protein.
  Combining the strengths of competing automated protein model building tools through open research
  Dr K D Cowtan, Prof A A Antson
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD position is available to work in the group of Dr Kevin Cowtan on computational methods for automatic building of protein structures.
  Comparative analysis of carbon assimilation pathways in key species of marine phytoplankton
  Dr T Tonon, Dr L Mackinder
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Seas and oceans cover more than 70% of our planet, contribute to half of the primary production on Earth, and are responsible for cycling half of the carbon fixed by living organisms.
  Cooperative, non-specific binding and aggregation in protein/RNAinteractions: Beyond stoichiometry, specificity, and discrete binding sites
  Dr M Plevin, Dr S Shimizu
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Interactions between biomolecules are typically considered to be both. specific and stoichiometric. Even in cases of multiple binding sites,.
