  Dynamics of mitochondrial genome complexity in trypanosomes
  Research Group: Institute of Immunology & Infection Research
  Dr N Savill, Dr A Schnaufer
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sleeping sickness, caused by the African trypanosome, threatens millions of people in many countries in sub-Saharan Africa. Many of the affected populations live in remote rural areas with limited access to adequate health service.
  (BBSRC DTP) Complexity of heart development arising from evolution of signalling systems
  Dr K Hentges, Dr D Talavera, Prof S Lovell
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Protein families grow or shrink in size during evolution due to gene duplication and gene loss events. These events provide opportunities for protein function specialisation or innovation.
  EASTBIO Exploring the multilayer world: application of multilayer network analysis for livestock disease surveillance and control
  Dr T Porphyre, Dr IM McKendrick
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies / The Roslin Institute. Livestock movements are an important mechanism of infectious disease transmission.
  EMBLA Project - The regulation of phase transition by alternative splicing
  Dr R Weatheritt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

More than 90% of human genes undergo alternative splicing, the process by which multiple, distinct transcript and protein variants are expressed from a single gene.
  How does the microbiome affect behaviour? Discovering neuroactive compounds made by bacteria
  Research Group: Behavioural Genomics
  Dr A Brown
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The risk of psychiatric diseases and neurodegeneration is influenced by genetics and external environment. Increasingly, it is also thought to be influenced by the internal environment through gut microbes.
  Evolutionary dynamics of MEK inhibitor sensitivity and resistance in diffuse midline glioma
  Dr C Jones, Dr O Rossanese
Application Deadline: 17 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Institute of Cancer Research, London, is one of the world’s most influential cancer research institutes. We are committed to attracting and developing the best minds in the world to join us in our mission—to make the discoveries that defeat cancer.
  (BBSRC DTP CASE) Discovery and Engineering of Expanded Halogenases for Late Stage Enzymatic Functionalisation
  Prof J Micklefield, Prof P Barran
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project aims to discover and engineer novel enzymes (biocatalysts) that can affect regioselective halogenation of complex molecules enabling more efficient and environmentally sustainable production of pharmaceuticals which are urgently required to combat disease.
  GW4 BioMed MRC DTP PhD studentship: Using computational simulation and machine learning to understand bacterial phenotypes of public health importance
  Dr L A Cowley
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.
  Genetic and Epigenetic Mechanisms Linking Early-Life-Stress to Psycho-Cardio-Metabolic Multi-Morbidity
  Dr E Walton, Dr G Fairchild, Prof A Ward
Application Deadline: 27 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University of Bath (Department of Psychology) is pleased to offer two PhD projects starting in January 2020, supervised by Dr Esther Walton, Dr Graeme Fairchild, and Professor Andrew Ward (University of Bath).
  Methods for quantitative genetic analyses in autotetraploids
  Prof Z Luo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Methods for quantitative genetic analysis have been well established in almost all important diploid plants and animal including humans, and have served as essential tools for dissecting the genetic architectures underlying agronomically, evolutionarily and medically interesting quantitative and complex traits.
