The electrical activity of neurons is metabolically demanding and generates. reactive oxygen species (ROS) through mitochondrial oxidative.
  Selective control of tRNA gene transcription by steroid receptors and BRCA1.
  Prof R J White, Dr W Brackenbury
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BRCA1 is an important tumour suppressor protein with roles in DNA repair. and transcription. BRCA1 binds many tRNA genes, but its role there is.
  Sorting old from new: protein assembly and turnover in the Gram-negative outer membrane
  Dr C G Baumann, Dr M A Fascione
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gram-negative bacteria have evolved to survive in diverse ecological niches. Some species are pathogenic, while others colonise the mammalian gut and aid food digestion.
  Structural biology of nucleic acid processing machines from human and bacterial viruses
  Prof A A Antson, Dr P Fogg
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Viruses are the most common biological entities on our planet, infecting all living things. In humans, viral infections like herpes and poliovirus cause serious illnesses but, because they are impossible to eradicate using current treatments, they can also persist indefinitely.
  Structure and activity of carbohydrate-active enzymes associated with human disease
  Dr L Willems, Prof G Davies
Application Deadline: 1 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Proteins on the surface of mammalian cells are often modified with diverse, complex carbohydrate structures. These carbohydrates, named glycans, play key roles in a range of cellular processes including cell-cell and host-pathogen interactions.
  Structure and function of CIZ1/RNA complexes
  Prof D Coverley, Prof A A Antson
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

X chromosome inactivation (XCI) serves as a model for establishment and. maintenance of selective transcriptional silencing throughout the genome.
  The aphid microbiome: ecological and evolutionary dynamics of multispecies interactions
  Dr J Ferrari, Dr AC Darby
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

All organisms face a multitude of environmental threats and have to. adapt to overcome these challenges. Many insects get help from an.
  The circadian clock in the ageing plant
  Dr D Ezer, Prof S J Davis
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants respond to environmental signals in a time-of-day dependent manner,. but we do not yet know how this process is affected by age.
  The development of Anthropocene biodiversity
  Prof C Thomas, Prof N Milner
Application Deadline: 29 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD studentship is available to investigate the impacts of humanity on biodiversity change. You will use a combination of biological and archaeological information to identify losses and gains of species diversity over time, and hence to provide insights into future impacts of human development on biodiversity.
