  PhD positions at the International Max Planck Research School in Chemical and Molecular Biology

Funding Type

PhD Type

Dortmund, Germany. Application Deadline. April 13th 2020. The International Max Planck Research School in Chemical and Molecular Biology (IMPRS-CMB) is looking for talented and motivated PhD candidates of all nationalities to carry out novel projects in the following research areas.
  The role of oesophageal submucosal glands in epithelial homeostasis and the development of Barrett’s oesophagus
  Research Group: Cancer Biology & Surgical Oncology Laboratory
  Prof W. Phillips, Dr N. Clemons
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Barrett’s oesophagus, the premalignant precursor of oesophageal adenocarcinoma, is a metaplastic condition where the normal stratified squamous epithelium that lines the oesophagus is replaced by an intestinal-like columnar epithelium.
  Exploring viral evolution along the invasion route of the demon shrimp, Dikerogammarus haemobaphes
  Dr J Bojko
Application Deadline: 20 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Start date. Successful applicants will be expected to start on 5 October 2020 but consideration will also be given for applicants starting on 7 December 2020.
  Uncovering the mechanisms of cryoprotectant toxicity and improving cryopreservation protocols
  Dr JP de Magalhaes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cryopreservation is the process of placing cells, organs or even whole organisms at low temperatures so that they remain in a state of suspended animation and function is preserved.
  EPSRC PhD studentship in: Evaluating the Public Health Risks of Urban Flooding Events
  Dr I Douterelo, Dr JD Shucksmith, Dr H Jensen
Application Deadline: 18 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

EPSRC PhD studentship in. Evaluating the Public Health Risks of Urban Flooding Events. 3.5 years tax-free stipend of £15,000 per year and all tuition fees paid The University of Sheffield, Sheffield Water Centre.
  Identifying inhibitors specific to the OPG-kinome: towards novel treatments for Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH).
  Prof A Lawrie, Dr R Thompson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a fatal progressive disease. Median life expectancy in untreated PAH patients is 2.8 years.
  The molecular mechanisms of organelle transport by motor protein myosin-V
  Dr A Hume
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Organelle transport is essential for cellular function and survival, and these processes are disrupted in many common diseases including cancer, diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease.
  Role of primary cilia in skeletal muscle stem cells and muscle regeneration.
  Dr A G Borycki
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Primary cilia are ancient organelles present at the surface of many cell types in vertebrates. In recent years, they have been shown to play essential roles in relaying sensory and signalling information from the environment to the cell.
  Targeting pathogen subversion of cellular ageing to combat antimicrobial-resistant typhoid fever
  Dr D Humphreys, Dr T Darton
Applications accepted all year round

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).
  Therapeutic models for Spinal muscular atrophy
  Prof R Yáñez-Muñoz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our laboratory works on Gene Therapy in the Central Nervous System and Gene Repair, using novel viral vectors, gene targeting and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) as core technologies.
  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.
  Genome-wide responses to stress
  Dr J Mata
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are interested in gene regulation in responses to stress, using both simple model organisms, human and plant pathogens. Cells respond to stress conditions by launching complex programs of gene expression, both transcriptional and posttranscriptional, and which are often closely linked with each other.
  Chromatin remodelling in health and disease
  Dr R Gibbons, Prof D Higgs
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

It has become apparent that the regulation of chromatin structure is of paramount importance in a wide variety of fundamental nuclear processes including gene expression, DNA replication, repair and recombination.

  Developing phage therapy to control plant pathogenic bacteria in the rhizosphere microbiome
  Dr V Friman
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plant pathogenic bacteria cause considerable economic losses to food production systems. The main reason for this is that hardly any effective control methods exist to mitigate this damage.
