  Biological implications of genetics variation in rice for mycorrhizal colonisation.
  Prof A Price
Applications accepted all year round
We have demonstrated repeatable and substantial differences in the colonisation of rice cultivars by the model arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungus Rizophagus irregularis and mapped quantitative trait loci for the variation.
  Evolution of inbreeding mating systems in social species: theory on causes and consequences.
  Dr G Bocedi, Dr J Reid, Prof T Bilde
Application Deadline: 1 February 2019
This project aims at developing new spatially- and genetically-explicit theory to understand (1) evolution of inbreeding mating systems and associated sociality, and (2) its consequences for species adaptation to changing environments and evolutionary potential.
  Functional Significance of Al hyper-accumulation in Tropical Forest Trees
  Dr D Burslem, Dr Y Arn
Applications accepted all year round
Numerous plant species take up and store high concentrations of Al from the soil system, despite the toxicity of Al3+ to plant metabolism.
  Physiological and molecular characterisation of altered root hydraulic properties in rice due to allelic variation or genetic manipulation of plasma membrane intrinsic proteins (PIPs, a class of aquaporins)
  Prof A Price
Applications accepted all year round
A cluster of three PIPs on chromosome 7 of rice are all candidate genes for a drought avoidance locus. These genes are highly expressed in roots and thought to have a major role in root hydraulic conductance.
  A Tidal Clock: Circadian and Circatidal Rhythms in a Marine Intertidal Crustacean
  Dr D Wilcockson
Application Deadline: 17 January 2019
This project is part of a competition funded through the Aberystwyth University ’AberDoc’ scheme (https://www.aber.ac.uk/en/postgrad/fees-finance/uk-eu/research-competition/) and is in collaboration with Leicester University (Professor Bambos Kyriacou) and Cambridge MRC-LMB (Dr Michael Hastings).
  MPhil Scholarship: Developing Oats for Improving Human and Animal Health
  Dr I P Shah
Application Deadline: 10 January 2019
TO READ THE FULL PROJECT DESCRIPTION PLEASE VISIT. http://kess2.ac.uk/aum30004/. Available evidence highlights a major opportunity to add significant value to oats through the isolation and quantification of lipids as functional ingredients in the human food chain or for use in the cosmetic industry.
  Developing method to rationally design anti-cancer drug combinations
  Prof M Sherman
Applications accepted all year round
Developing novel approaches towards Drug Repurposing and Personalized Medicine. My laboratory is seeking a highly motivated PhD student and a Postdoc to use genetic screens, pathway analysis and other bioinformatics tools to design safe and effective drug combinations.
  Understanding the molecular mechanism of post-transcriptional regulation in eukaryotas
  Dr M Oren, Dr S Aronov
Applications accepted all year round
A molecular biology laboratory is seeking highly motivated Ph.D./MSc candidates to study two projects related to understanding the role of post-transcriptional regulation in gene expression and cell function in Eukaryotas.
  Marie Skłodowska-Curie ITN, Early Stage Researcher (iPLACENTA, ESR11): “Enhancing imaging of the placenta in murine models of preeclampsia and standardisation of preeclampsia mouse models”
  Prof A Ahmed
Application Deadline: 14 December 2018
Aston Medical School is looking for an Early Stage Researcher (ESR) to work on the project “Enhancing imaging of the placenta in murine models of preeclampsia and standardisation of preeclampsia mouse models (ESR11)” as part of iPLACENTA network collaborating with 14 other ESRs based in 11 European academic, industrial and clinical institutes.
  Understanding parallel origins of industrial metal tolerance in Silene uniflora
  Dr A. Papadopulos
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Climate change, urbanisation and exploitation of natural resources increasingly alter the environment, posing significant challenges for plants and animals.
