  Using CRISPR genome editing to determine the effects of obesity and hypertension associated polymorphisms
  Dr A MacKenzie, Prof M Delibegovic
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Introduction. There is now little doubt that morbid conditions such as obesity, cardiovascular disease and diabetes are mechanistically linked.
  New Methods in Molecular Phylogenetics
  Assoc Prof R Lanfear
Application Deadline: 16 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Phylogenies form the backbone of our understanding of much of life on earth. We are looking for a candidate with experience in bioinformatics, mathematics, computer science, or machine learning to help us build and apply the next generation of phylogenetic methods.
  Markers of Expertise in Sport and Physical Activity: Triangulated Approaches
  Dr D Broadbent, Dr D Bishop, Dr A Cocks, Dr A Nowicky
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to adopt a mixed methods approach to determine the various factors – innate, learnt, and environmental – that ultimately contribute to skill acquisition and/or expertise within a specified domain.
  Identification of novel complement evasion mechanisms developed by bacterial pathogens
  Prof A Blom, Prof S Rooijakkers
Application Deadline: 10 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project is focused on discovery of new complement evasion mechanisms developed by bacterial pathogens. One of the studied bacteria will be opportunistic Filifactor alocis, a recently identified periodontal pathogen of major importance but still poorly studied.
  Transcriptional heterogeneity and resistance to therapy in prostate cancer
  Dr D. Goode
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) is a standard treatment for prostate cancer that works well in many cases but rapidly fails in others.
  Precision Medicine: Pharmacogenomics in modern clinical practice
  Dr J Ellis
Application Deadline: 20 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Adverse Drug Reactions (ADRs) are a significant cause of hospitalisations and deaths, that incur significant costs to health care providers.
  Biomedical research in a simple non-animal model
  Prof R S B Williams
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research in biomedical neuroscience generally employs mammalian tissue culture experiments to look at disease-related neuronal cell function.
  Development of gene therapies for muscular dystrophies
  Dr L Popplewell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The activities in the Popplewell lab focus on the development of pre-clinical gene therapies for neuromuscular diseases, in particular muscular dystrophies based on gene replacement, endonuclease-mediated gene editing, antisense oligonucleotide (AO)-induced exon skipping and gene sliencing.
  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.
  Using canine models of obesity to discover the mechanisms by which genes influence obesity.
  Dr E Raffan, Dr D Sargan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are interested in discovering the mechanisms by which genes influence obesity. The dog is an excellent model organism for human comparative analyses.
