  Neuronal Src kinases: oncogenes in brain development?
  Dr G Evans, Dr S Chawla
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The challenges of the developing human brain include co-ordinating the birth and migration of 100 billion neurons and the formation of their 1000 trillion synaptic connections.
  New approaches to understanding the physical biology of blood stem cells
  Dr D G Kent, Dr S D Johnson
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Trillions of blood cells are produced and destroyed every day. Adult blood stem cells are ultimately responsible for the lifelong maintenance of this system, making it essential to understand their biology for a wide array of clinical and industrial applications.
  New biological diagnostics for environmental contaminants
  Prof J Moir, Dr S D Johnson
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are interested in recruiting a student interested in using biological methods to detect biological and chemical contamination in environmental samples.
  New metalloenzymes for biomass degradation
  Prof P Walton, Prof G Davies
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Where will out fuels come from in the future and still prevent catastrophic climate change? This question lies at the heart of one of humankind’s major challenges.
  Normal and malignant blood stem cell biology
  Dr D G Kent, Prof I Hitchcock
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the simplest and most provocative concepts in all of stem cell biology is how a single stem cell can give rise to any of the highly specialised cell types of a given tissue while also having the capacity to make a new equally potent stem cell.
  Nutritious crops: genomic approaches to improving the nutritional and commercial value of oilseed rape
  Prof Ian Bancroft, Dr A Harper
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Oilseed rape is the third largest source of vegetable oil in the world. It is also a fascinating species in which to undertake genomic studies due to its polyploid ancestry.
  Probing a DNA segregation machine at single molecule level to combat antibiotic resistance
  Dr D Barilla, Prof M Leake
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bacterial multidrug resistance is a global burden on human health worldwide. Large, low copy number plasmids responsible for antibiotic resistance have.
  Proteolytic network regulating the human innate immune response
  Dr D Boucher, Prof I Hitchcock
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The innate immune system is our first line of defence against a wide range of bacteria and viruses. Upon infection, immune cells, such as macrophages and neutrophils, will assemble signalling platforms termed inflammasome, to restrict and clear the insult.
  Regulating oxidative stress protection in neurons: structural studies of a signal integration system
  Prof A J Wilkinson, Dr S Sweeney
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project has at its heart the structure and interactions of three proteins and a small molecule that regulate the response of neurons.
  Replication and transcription machinery collisions in Escherichia coli.
  Dr M Hawkins, Prof M Leake
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

DNA duplication is essential for life but replication forks can be blocked when. they collide with proteins bound to DNA. Exactly how multiple rescue.
