  Social networking: Understanding promiscuity in the transfer of bacterial virulence genes
  Research Group: Institute of Infection, Immunity & Inflammation
  Prof JR Penades
Application Deadline: 1 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The development of novel multiresistant hypervirulent strains from formerly avirulent or only weakly virulent strains is dramatically fuelled by the acquisition of mobile genetic elements carrying virulence factors.
  Interneuron Development in the Zebrafish Spinal Cord
  Dr K Lewis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Lewis Lab moved to Syracuse University from Cambridge University in the UK in 2010.
  Moonlight activities for cyclin genes in plants (MOUBAYIDINJ18RS)
  Dr L Moubayidin
Application Deadline: 28 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The control of cell division in plant development is crucial to achieve coherent organ patterning, and bilateral and radial symmetry.
  Understanding the interplay of mutations and selection during cancer evolution
  Prof D Weghorn
Application Deadline: 23 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer is a genetic disease, subject to population genetics forces like mutation, selection and stochasticity.
  The genomics of sperm killing gene drive
  Dr T Price, Prof G Hurst, Prof S Paterson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many selfish genetic elements spread rapidly through populations by killing gametes that do not carry them. This fascinating phenomena also has practical applications.
  The role of endogenous retroviruses in human health and disease
  Dr G Magiorkinis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

More than 10 years have passed since the first high quality (nearly) complete version of the human genome and we are still exploring its functionality.
  Genetic constraints on adaptive evolution
  Dr M Reuter
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research in my group aims to understand how the genetic encoding of traits affects whether and how they will respond to selection.
  Evolution and biochemistry of photosynthesis - electron transfer reactions, renewable energy production, biotechnology, and chloroplast genomes
  Prof C J Howe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The common theme of our work is the biochemistry and evolution of photosynthesis.
  Adaptation to oxidative stress in hepatitis C virus persistence: the role of IRES-dependent translation.
  Dr S-W Chan, Prof R Ford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) causes a clinically important disease affecting 3% of the world population (Chan 2014). About 75% of the infection will develop into chronic hepatitis, which can then progress into fibrosis, cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma.
  How does clubroot obtain nutrients from its living plant host?
  Dr S A Rolfe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Clubroot is an important pathogen of Brassica crops. The disease is found throughout the world and causes severe economic losses.
