  Defining diets to treat inborn errors of metabolism
  Dr T Johnson, Dr M Piper
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fully funded PhD scholarships are available for both Australian and international students through the School of Biological Sciences and Monash University.
  Understanding the role of TNFRSF11B polymorphisms in osteoprotegerin bioavailability and bone metabolism
  Dr A Daroszewska, Prof R van ‘t Hof
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will focus on determining the effect of the polymorphisms of the TNFRSF11B gene, which encodes osteoprotegerin (OPG), on bone metabolism.
  How does amino acid metabolism affect tumour growth?
  Dr L. Cheng
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The effect of diet on tumour growth is hotly debated but poorly characterized. Due to the heterogeneous nature of the tumours, dietary studies in patients with varied genetic background often led to inconclusive outcome.
  Regulation of the In Vivo Response to Cardiac Hypoxia – The Role of FIH1
  Dr M Cole
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hypoxia-inducible factors (HIFs) are transcription factors present in all mammalian cells, and play a pivotal role in the molecular response to changes in oxygen availability.
  Inhibiting cell metabolism to enhance tumour cell death
  Dr C Bubici, Dr S Papa
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

As you read this, millions of your cells from your body are dying. Do not panic – this is not bad news. Most of them are either superfluous or potentially harmful, so you are better off without them.
  Hijacking of host cellular functions and metabolism in MRSA pathogenesis
  Dr M Letek, Dr V Behrends, Dr Y Calle
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited from potential PhD candidates to work at the Department of Life Sciences, University of Roehampton, supervised by Dr Michal Letek, Dr Volker Behrends, and Dr Yolanda Calle-Patino.
  How does PAP, a stress-induced metabolite, regulate gene expression?
  Research Group: Institute of Molecular, Cell and Systems Biology
  Dr Matt Jones, Dr E Kaiserli
Application Deadline: 22 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Jones lab investigates how light signals from the environment interact with the circadian clock to minimize crop loss in adverse conditions.
  Genomics of Diabetes: Functional characterisation of T2D GWAS
  Dr A Gloyn
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Diabetes already affects 415 million people worldwide. In the UK, there will be 5M people with type 2 diabetes (T2D) by 2025, accounting for 1 in 30 prescriptions and £25 billion in annual NHS costs.
  Functional Significance of Al hyper-accumulation in Tropical Forest Trees
  Dr D Burslem, Dr Y Arn Teh
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Numerous plant species take up and store high concentrations of Al from the soil system, despite the toxicity of Al3+ to plant metabolism.
  Open PhD positions - IMPRS for Heart and Lung Research

Funding Type

PhD Type

The International Max Planck Research School for Heart and Lung Research (IMPRS-HLR) offers up to ten positions to talented and enthusiastic students holding a relevant Master‘s degree.
