  Investigating the function of developmental regulators in early human embryogenesis and stem cells
  Dr K Niakan
Application Deadline: 12 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 4-year PhD studentship is offered in Dr Kathy Niakan’’s Group based at the Francis Crick Institute (the Crick). This project will characterise key regulators of human embryogenesis.
  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.
  Understanding and predicting disease-associated mutations in dynamic and disordered regions of proteins
  Research Group: MRC Human Genetics Unit
  Dr J Marsh
Application Deadline: 13 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited from outstanding candidates to join the MRC Human Genetics Unit (HGU), part of the Institute of Genetics and Molecular Medicine (IGMM) at the University of Edinburgh.
  The role of endogenous retroviruses in human health and disease
  Dr G Magiorkinis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

More than 10 years have passed since the first high quality (nearly) complete version of the human genome and we are still exploring its functionality.
  (MRC DTP) Developing a zebrafish model for a novel human neurodevelopmental disorder
  Prof G D Pavitt, Dr P Kasher, Dr S Banka
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. We have recently discovered a novel human disorder caused by mutations in the EIF5A1 gene resulting in developmental problems, small head size and craniofacial defects in children [1].
  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.
  Genomics, bioinformatics and evolution of inherited chromosomal integrated human herpesvirus 6.
  Dr A Aswad, Prof B Kaufer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are inviting applications for a 3-4 year PhD student in the area of bioinformatics and evolutionary genomics of endogenous Human Herpesvirus 6 (HHV-6).
  (MRC DTP) RAC1 mutations in human neurodevelopmental syndrome: from mechanism to treatment
  Dr T Millard, Dr S Banka, Dr S Woolner, Prof V Allan
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

RAC1 regulates a variety of essential cellular functions1,2,3. We recently showed that it is critical for normal human development by discovering a novel neurodevelopmental syndrome caused by mutations in the RAC1 gene4.
  Metals and host-pathogen interactions: the role of metal handling systems in the human gastrointestinal pathogen Campylobacter jejuni
  Dr J Cavet, Dr D Linton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Campylobacter jejuni is a globally important food-borne pathogen causing an estimated 400-500 million cases of acute human gastroenteritis each year.
  Investigating the influence of polyploidy on the evolution of a major human fungal pathogen
  Dr E Ballou
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The human fungal pathogen Cryptococcus neoformans undergoes an unusual morphological transition from haploid yeast to highly polyploid Titan cells during infection of the human host.
