  Development of heterocyclic pharmacophores using diversity-oriented synthesis
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr K Pors, Prof L Patterson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Diversity-oriented synthesis (DOS) is a modern chemical tool, which aims to synthesise small molecules that cover new chemical space with the possibility of finding unexplored biological targets or pathways that may be important for disease progression.
  Inhibitors of cilia and Hedgehog signaling: from phenotype to mechanistic understanding
  Prof S Hoogendoorn
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Hedgehog (Hh) signaling pathway is a major contributor to embryonic development, and tissue homeostasis and stem cell maintenance in children and adults.
  Chemical biology meets microbiology to combat climate change (GATESU20DTP)
  Dr A Gates, Dr Z Waller
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

As well as carbon dioxide (CO2), other important climate-active gases are known to drive global warming. Importantly, nitrous oxide (N2O), is a greenhouse gas with 300-times greater global warming power than CO2 and it also contributes to the destruction of the ozone layer.
  Sex pheromone metabolism in Coccoidea (PATRONE20DTP1)
  Dr N Patron
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sex pheromones are substances secreted by animals that elicit powerful attractant effects and mating stimuli on individuals of the same species.
  Global cellular controls in eukaryotic cells
  Dr P Nurse
Application Deadline: 12 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 4-year PhD studentship is offered in Dr Paul Nurse’s Group based at the Francis Crick Institute (the Crick). The laboratory is interested in the global networks that regulate the eukaryotic cell cycle, cell form and cell growth.
  Regulation of autophagy in human embryonic stem cells and its therapeutic application in induced pluripotent stem cell-based disease models
  Dr S Sarkar
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project background. Regulation of proteostasis is critical for maintaining tissue homeostasis. Autophagy, a major intracellular degradation pathway essential for cellular and energy homeostasis, functions in the clearance of aggregation-prone proteins and damaged organelles.
  Carbon Capture for Soil Ecosystem Service Enhancement (REIDUENV20ARIES)
  Dr B Reid, Dr A Harwood
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BACKGROUND. Over the last century, agriculture has caused soil erosion and the loss of soil organic carbon on an enormous scale.
  EASTBIO Investigating the role of cell polarity pathways during neurite formation
  Research Group: Institute of Cell Biology
  Dr D Cheerambathur
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The establishment of an orderly neuronal circuitry is essential for proper organismal development and function.
  Incest and insects: How plant sex affects herbivores and pollinators
  Dr S Campbell, Prof M T Siva-jothy
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A long-standing paradigm in ecology and evolutionary biology suggests that the immense diversity of insects has been driven by adaptation to the defences of the plants they feed on.
  The cost of being well-defended: How leaf herbivores make flowers stink and what plants can do about it
  Dr S Campbell
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants use a diverse array of traits to repel or kill pests and pathogens. Following attack, a sophisticated hormonal signaling system regulates the production of defensive metabolites, allowing plants to fine-tune their responses to specific enemies and environments.
