  Learning from the past to predict and reduce the risk of infectious disease pandemics
  Dr F Perez-Reche, Prof N Strachan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The World Health Organisation reports that infectious diseases cause 63% of childhood deaths and 48% of premature deaths. There is the ongoing risk of epidemics and pandemics that can cause widespread morbidity and mortality (Spanish flu, ebola, SARS, E.
  Determination of the function of inherited refractive error risk factor genes in the embryonic development of the eye.
  Prof L Erskine, Prof N Vargesson, Prof M Collinson
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Refractive errors, such as short-sightedness (myopia) and long-sightedness (hyperopia), are becoming epidemic, and in parts of southeast Asia around 80% of people have short-sight.
  Do rural-dwellers develop more aggressive breast and prostate cancer than those living in the city?
  Prof P Murchie, Prof Z Miedzybrodzka, Prof V Speirs, Dr R Vieira
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BACKGROUND.
  Investigating a parasite-specific gene expression mechanism for the identification of novel anthelmintic drug targets
  Dr B Mueller, Dr J Pettitt, Dr B Connolly
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nematode parasites remain a major cause of neglected human disease and make significant global impacts on the health of agriculturally important animals and plants.
  Is breast cancer more aggressive when developed by rural-dwellers compared to those living in the city?
  Prof P Murchie, Prof Z Miedzybrodzka, Prof V Speirs, Dr R Vieira
Application Deadline: 27 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BACKGROUND.
  Telomere integrity: How do Replication Factor C-like complexes maintain telomere length?
  Dr T Kubota, Prof A Donaldson
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Telomeres, the ends of eukaryotic chromosomes, play an essential role in protecting linear DNA from degradation. Derailed telomere regulation causes genome instability and has been implicated in increased rates of cellular senescence and many diseases, including cancer.
  The mechanism of DNA organisation mediated by cohesion and condensin
  Dr B Hu, Prof A Donaldson
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The DNA of all organisms must be compacted in order to store a large amount of genetic information in one cell. Compaction must be regulated to allow access of DNA replication or transcription machinery, but to enable suitable condensation for effective chromosome segregation into two daughter cells at mitosis.
  What determines tumour susceptibility to replication-inhibiting chemotherapy?
  Prof A Donaldson, Dr S R Dundas
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chromosome replication and maintenance are central for cell division, and derailment of these processes is a major cause of cancer.
  FoodBioSystems DTP - A machine learning approach to the metabolic profiling of a diverse heritage collection of apples and pears
  Dr D Thorogood, Prof L A Terry, Dr A Winters, Dr M Anastasiadi
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. The project will provide an excellent opportunity for a bio-sciences graduate to develop highly transferrable skills in computational biology using big data analytics.
  FoodBioSystems DTP - A receptor-ligand module that triggers cell death in plants: a killer in disguise
  Dr M Bosch, Dr L J McGuffin, Prof G J Stephens
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. Most of our food is a product of plant reproduction with fertility and seed set critical for crop yield and thus food security.
  FoodBioSystems DTP - Deep learning based phenotyping of crop seed banks and herbaria
  Dr J Doonan, Dr L Tang, Dr CL Lu, Dr D Thorogood
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. Biodiversity underpins long term sustainability of both ecosystems and agriculture. The study of biodiversity, as represented by Herbaria, is one of the oldest branches of biology stretching back at least 400 years.
  FoodBioSystems DTP - Identifying beneficial plant-microbial interactions using multi-omic approaches
  Dr M Swain, Dr S Cameron, Dr K Farrar
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. Microbes known as endophytes are usually bacteria or fungi, which live within specific plant tissues without causing disease.
  FoodBioSystems DTP - Variation in forages for improved micronutrient nutrition in livestock
  Dr S Palmer, Dr S Stergiadis, Prof A Kingston-Smith, Mr P Billings
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. Milk is a rich source of protein, calcium, iodine, magnesium and manganese, and is seen as a key mechanism via which health and nutrition can be improved in many countries, developed and developing alike.
