  (MRC DTP) Understanding how EDAR-signalling modulates susceptibility to skin and colorectal cancer
  Dr K Finegan, Prof K R Brennan
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This work will provide vital information to help stratify patients for EDAR-based therapy by determining the patient populations that are susceptible to oncogenic side-effects of these agents.
  Transferability of genetic risk scores for complex human diseases across diverse population groups
  Dr AM Morris, Dr J Bowes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have been extremely successful in identifying DNA variants that are associated with a wide range of complex human traits and common diseases.
  GW4 BioMed MRC DTP PhD studentship: Cannabis, Tobacco and Psychiatric Disease: Isolating their Relationship by Comparing Data from Countries that Smoke Cannabis with and without Tobacco
  Dr G Taylor
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the ‘GW4 BioMed MRC Doctoral Training Partnership’ which is offering up to 18 studentships for entry in September 2020.
  Evolutionary dynamics of diverse communities: linking speciation with contemporary evolution.
  Prof T Barraclough
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

All organisms live in diverse communities with hundreds of other species. Understanding what species are, where they come from, and how they coexist and interact is therefore vital for predicting how living systems will evolve in response to contemporary changes, as well as for knowing where diversity comes from.
  Evolution of mimicry: Genetic, morphometric, and functional origins of leaf mimicry in singing insects
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Dr N Bailey
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mimicry is a remarkable Darwinian adaptation, and bush crickets whose wings resemble plant leaves are among the most spectacular examples of mimicry in the natural world.
  Investigating modes of action of genetic risk variants through integrated analysis of multiple high-dimensional “omics” data.
  Research Group: Division of Statistics
  Prof A Lynch, Dr M Papathomas
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Genome-wide association studies have identified thousands of genomic loci that are associated with higher risk of a trait (often a disease such as breast cancer).
