  BBSRC White Rose DTP Studentship - How do enhancers control the expression of the same transcriptional factor in different regions of the nervous system?
  Dr A Tsakiridis, Dr Dan Bose
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Non-coding DNA regulatory elements or enhancers control tissue and region-specific expression of critical developmental regulators thus playing a crucial role in the correct formation of the embryonic body.
  Understanding the genetic blueprint of photosynthetic bacteria?
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr R Puxty, Prof D J Scanlan
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Highlights. Cutting-edge 3D chromosome reconstruction and “gene transplants” using CRISPR. Understanding the evolution of chromosomes of photosynthetic organisms.
  EMBL Australia Partnership PhD Program

Funding Type

PhD Type

Undertake interdisciplinary, postgraduate research for a PhD degree at Australia's top life science laboratories. Successful students will receive generous scholarships and travel grants while undertaking their PhD at an EMBL Australia laboratory in Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra or Adelaide.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: The role of circular RNAs in the development and progression of Parkinson’s disease
  Dr M Jackson, Dr M Santibanez-Koref, Dr G Hudson, Dr O Izuogy
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the UK alone there are currently 145,000 people diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease (PD). In an increasingly aged population, this number is rising, with on average 2 people every hour told that they have PD.
  Novel microbial fuel design and production - a multidisciplinary approach (Advert Reference: SF19/EE/MCE/AZIMOV)
  Dr U Azimov, Prof A Burluka
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this multidisciplinary project is to experimentally produce novel microbial fuels from microalgae, organic waste and wastewater to be designed in order to improve the performance of internal combustion engines for future low-carbon hybrid powertrains and range extenders of light- and heavy-duty vehicles.
  A multiple modality approach for targeting treatment-resistant ovarian cancer
  Dr E. Sanij, Prof R. Pearson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

High-grade serous ovarian cancer (HGSOC) accounts for 70% of ovarian cancer (OvCa) deaths and its five-year survival rate is 43%.
  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.
  mRNA translation reprogramming and metabolic re-wiring in response to ribosome-targeted therapies
  Prof R. Pearson, Dr J Kang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Increased synthesis and activity of ribosomes are associated with oncogenesis downstream of the major oncogenes including MYC, RAS and PI3K.
  Testing the function of immune suppressive cytokines and cells in bone metastasis
  Assoc Prof B Parker
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bone metastasis is a common occurrence in breast and prostate cancer that leads to patient morbidity and, in many cases, mortality.
  (BBSRC DTP) Complexity of heart development arising from evolution of signalling systems
  Dr K Hentges, Dr D Talavera, Prof S Lovell
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Protein families grow or shrink in size during evolution due to gene duplication and gene loss events. These events provide opportunities for protein function specialisation or innovation.
