  Dynamics of mitochondrial genome complexity in trypanosomes
  Research Group: Institute of Immunology & Infection Research
  Dr N Savill, Dr A Schnaufer
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sleeping sickness, caused by the African trypanosome, threatens millions of people in many countries in sub-Saharan Africa. Many of the affected populations live in remote rural areas with limited access to adequate health service.
  EASTBIO Dynamics of mitochondrial genome complexity in trypanosomes
  Research Group: Institute of Immunology & Infection Research
  Dr N Savill, Dr A Schnaufer
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sleeping sickness, caused by the African trypanosome, threatens millions of people in many countries in sub-Saharan Africa. Many of the affected populations live in remote rural areas with limited access to adequate health service.
  (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.
  Developing an Integrated Platform to Explore Metastatic Colorectal Cancer
  Prof O Sansom
Application Deadline: 9 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite increasingly sophisticated pre-clinical models, more than 9/10 promising cancer therapeutics fail in clinical trials. The nature of this resistance is complex and not fully understood.
  EASTBIO Exploring the multilayer world: application of multilayer network analysis for livestock disease surveillance and control
  Dr T Porphyre, Dr IM McKendrick
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies / The Roslin Institute. Livestock movements are an important mechanism of infectious disease transmission.
  EMBLA Project - The regulation of phase transition by alternative splicing
  Dr R Weatheritt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

More than 90% of human genes undergo alternative splicing, the process by which multiple, distinct transcript and protein variants are expressed from a single gene.
  Development of bioinformatics methods for data integration from various diagnostic types in clinical oncology
  Dr V Bystrý, Dr P Alexiou
Application Deadline: 20 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the state of the art personalised therapy planning for oncology patients multiple examinations and laboratory tests are performed to get a thorough characterisation of a tumour.
  (BBSRC DTP CASE) Discovery and Engineering of Expanded Halogenases for Late Stage Enzymatic Functionalisation
  Prof J Micklefield, Prof P Barran
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project aims to discover and engineer novel enzymes (biocatalysts) that can affect regioselective halogenation of complex molecules enabling more efficient and environmentally sustainable production of pharmaceuticals which are urgently required to combat disease.
  Understanding signalling networks underpinning key developmental processes during plant evolution
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr J C Coates
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants first appeared on land almost half a billion years ago. All land plants likely evolved from a single aquatic green algal ancestor.
  Use of single molecule fluorescence and cryo-EM to study the regulation of RNA splicing
  Prof I C Eperon, Dr A Hudson
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the biggest challenges in molecular biology is presented by the selection of sites for RNA splicing. We cannot overstate its importance or apparent complexity.
  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.
