  Caught in a Venus flytrap: investigating the segregation dynamics of a multidrug resistance plasmid
  Dr D Barilla, Dr M Hawkins
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bacterial multidrug resistance is a growing burden on human health worldwide. Large, low copy number plasmids carrying resistance genes shuttle easily from cell to cell in bacterial populations, causing intra-species and inter-species spreading of antibiotic resistance.
  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.
  Dissecting the mechanisms underlying sleep disturbances in Parkinson’s Disease
  Dr S Chawla, Dr C J H Elliott
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ageing and neurodegenerative disorders, such as Parkinson’s, are characterized by a progressive loss of neurons in particular brain regions leading to characteristic behavioural changes including cognitive decline and sleep disruption.
  Ecological and evolutionary interactions in insect symbiont communities
  Dr J Ferrari
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most organisms host bacterial symbionts, which can substantially affect the biology of their hosts. For example, they can alter the host’s nutrition, reproduction, immunity and protect the host from environmental stresses.
  Evolutionary acceleration in the Anthropocene
  Dr K Dasmahapatra, Prof C Thomas
Application Deadline: 29 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD position is available to investigate whether rates of evolution, hybridisation and speciation have been accelerating during the Anthropocene.
  Functional analysis of CIZ1
  Prof D Coverley
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are interested in the structure, function and disease implications of the CIZ1 protein, and related factors involved in organisation of the mammalian cell nucleus.
  Investigating the role of the FGF pathway in gene regulation during early amphibian development.
  Dr H V Isaacs, Dr M E Pownall
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGF) signalling pathway plays critical roles in regulating cell lineage during normal development and stem cell differentiation in culture.
  Ion channel signalling in cancer cells
  Dr W Brackenbury
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our cells constantly sense and transport ions present in their environment. From embryonic development to epilepsy to heart disease to cancer, our cells’ ability to respond to changes in the ionic microenvironment is essential for healthy ageing.
  Modulating cell signalling regulates morphogenesis of the developing nervous system
  Dr M E Pownall, Dr H V Isaacs
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Growth factors such as FGFs and Wnts are important signalling molecules that regulate development and are also known to cause disease when they go wrong.
  Neuronal Src kinases: oncogenes in brain development?
  Dr G Evans, Dr S Chawla
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The challenges of the developing human brain include co-ordinating the birth and migration of 100 billion neurons and the formation of their 1000 trillion synaptic connections.
