  The analysis of genetic and environmental contributions to the risk of congenital heart disease
  Dr S Loughna, Prof J D Brook
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

According to BHF statistics 12 babies are born with heart defects in the UK each day and more cases. are diagnosed in later life.
  Epigenetic mechanisms of phenotypic plasticity and the evolution of adaptive responses
  Dr R Hager, Prof J McInerney
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We now live in a world of rapidly changing environmental conditions where species will need to adapt or perish. While populations may evolve in response to environmental change, more rapid responses may happen through processes like phenotypic plasticity.
  Learning and cognition: Investigating the pathways from genetic variation to phenotypic expression
  Dr M Malanchini
Application Deadline: 16 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A fully funded PhD studentship is available to start in September 2020 in Dr Margherita Malanchini’s group. The project will be co-supervised by Dr Kaili Rimfield and Professor Robert Plomin of King’s College London.
  Understanding disease mechanisms in autoimmune inflammatory muscle disease
  Dr J Lamb, Dr H Chinoy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The idiopathic inflammatory myopathies are a spectrum of rare autoimmune disorders characterized by inflammation of muscle tissue (myositis), which leads to muscle weakness and fatigue, and heterogeneous systemic organ involvement.
  Sexual Selection and Sexual Conflict in Hermaphrodites

Fully-funded PhD position available in the lab of Dr Romina Vuono at the Medway School of Pharmacy (University of Kent). The project will be carried out in collaboration with the University of Cambridge and the UK Brain Banks Network.
  Development and Evolution of Shapes: Investigating the genetic pathways governing the leaf shape in Arabidopsis
  Dr M Kim, Prof S Turner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The shapes and sizes of organisms and organs are scrupulously conserved within a species. What regulates the shapes and sizes of organisms and their lateral organs are intriguing and fundamental questions in Biology.
  Development of iPSCs from patients with Urofacial Syndrome for disease modelling
  Prof S J Kimber, Prof A Woolf
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Peripheral neuropathies (PNs) affect 2% of the general population. Somatic PNs cause locomotor and sensory deficits, while autonomic PNs cause cardiac dysrhythmias and gastrointestinal and urinary bladder dysfunction.
  Genetic mechanisms of chronic kidney disease
  Prof M Tomaszewski, Prof A Woolf
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is one of the most common complex disorders. The prevalence of CKD is on the rise in all populations around the globe and both the clinical and economic pressures of CKD on the healthcare systems increase exponentially.
  The role mRNA-specific translation during chronological aging
  Prof C M Grant, Prof M Ashe, Prof S Hubbard
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biological ageing can be thought of as a progressive decline in the ability of an organism to survive stress and disease. It is a complex process which is influenced by both genetic and environmental factors.
