  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: How to kill a difficult superbug: understanding the evolution of antimicrobial resistance in Clostridioides difficile
  Dr R Fagan, Prof M Brockhurst
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Increasing resistance to antibiotics is one of the greatest health challenges facing humanity today. Clostridioides difficile is the primary cause of antibiotic-associated infections in UK hospitals and antibiotic-induced disruption of the gut microbiota is a prerequisite for infection.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Is less sometimes more? Balancing immunity, homeostasis and healthy ageing
  Dr I Evans, Dr M J P Simons
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The cells of our immune system perform key roles, such as shaping our bodies as they develop, fighting-off infection, and repairing tissues.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Targeting pathogen subversion of cellular ageing to combat antimicrobial-resistant typhoid fever
  Dr D Humphreys, Prof S Baker, Dr T Darton
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

- Antimicrobial-resistant typhoid fever is fuelled by chronic Salmonella carriage. The world faces epidemics of untreatable typhoid fever caused by antimicrobial-resistant strains of Salmonella Typhi (~27 million cases/year).
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Understanding the role of DRAM in infection and autophagy-related disease
  Dr J King, Dr P Elks
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Intracellular degradation by lysosomes is important in a wide range of diseases. The capture and degradation of cytoplasmic components by autophagy allows tumour cells to survive starvation and neurons to remove the protein aggregates associated with neurodegeneration.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Using the fly kidney to understand human genetic kidney diseases
  Dr N Bulgakova, Dr J Rodriguez, Prof A Ong
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Polycystic kidney disease is the most common hereditary cause of kidney failure in man. It comprises a spectrum of diseases of which Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease (ADPKD) is the most common form in adults and Nephronophthisis (NPHP) the most common form in children.
  (BBSRC DTP) Definition of integrin signalling networks in neurons in vivo
  Prof A Prokop, Prof M J Humphries
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cell adhesion molecules (CAMs) of the plasma membrane physically tie cells together into tissues, both via interaction of cells with other cells or with ECM (extracellular matrix); they also constitute hubs of information exchange with neighbouring cells and the environment.
  (BBSRC DTP) Modulating the microtubule network to improve nerve regeneration
  Dr N Gardiner, Prof A Prokop, Dr I Hahn, Dr A Reid
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Axon terminals typically undergo dynamic extension and retraction processes in response to stimuli such as neurotrophic factors, physical stimuli or damage.
  Ph.D. Student Positions - International Max Planck Research School (IMPRS) for Genome Science

Funding Type

PhD Type

The IMPRS for Genome Science is a graduate program established as a cooperation between the University of Göttingen and several other research institutions at the Göttingen Campus, including the Max Planck Institutes.
  EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Sustainable Approaches to Biomedical Science: Responsible and Reproducible Research - SABS

Funding Type

PhD Type

Good degree in the Physical or Life Sciences? Interested in biological or medical research? We offer fully-funded PhD places across the Oxford Doctoral Training Centre programmes.
  Investigating the in vivo targets and mechanism of action of a toxic acetylcholinesterase-derived peptide upregulated in Alzheimer’s disease.
  Dr M Collins
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project description. Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that is characterised by the deposition and accumulation of amyloid beta plaques and phosphorylated tau filaments in the brain, the latter correlating with the onset of symptoms.
