  How regulatory immunological cues (re)programme cellular metabolism to control effector T cell behaviour and function
  Dr K Couper, Prof R K Grencis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Upon activation a T cell transitions from a state of semi-quiescence to a state of high activity. During the process of activation the T cell therefore needs to up regulate metabolic pathways to acquire the energy and nutrients required to facilitate the behavioural changes associated with its new functional state.
  The impact of zinc deficiency on Alzheimer’s disease
  Dr C Lawrence, Prof D Brough
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In addition to memory problems, people with Alzheimer’s disease (AD) also experience ‘non-memory’ behavioural symptoms including depression, anxiety, and agitation.
  Investigating the communication between cancer cells and cells in the tumour microenvironment to improve our understanding of epigenetic regulatory mechanisms and identify new targets for cancer therapy
  Prof K Gaston, Dr P-S Jayaraman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

It is well-established that the molecular mechanisms controlling gene expression are disrupted in cancer cells and work in this area has laid the foundations for targeted cancer therapies.
  Investigating fatigue and the response to exercise training in clinical population with functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS)
  Dr H Kubis
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

PhD Studentship/Junior Technician. Applications are invited for a six year, 50% FTE part time PhD studentship/50% FTE part time Junior Technician post funded by the School of Sport, Health and Exercise Sciences at Bangor University.
  Using zebrafish to model Facioscapulohumeral muscle dystrophy and screen for drugs to enhance muscle stem cell health
  Dr R Knight, Dr P Zammit
Application Deadline: 26 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Facioscapulohumeral dystrophy (FSHD) is the 3rd most common muscle dystrophy leading to progressive muscle weakness of facial, shoulder and limb muscles and so impairing quality of life.
  (BBSRC DTP) Development of anti-cancer agents and biomarkers that target intrinsically disordered regions of transcription factors and protein kinases
  Prof J Waltho, Dr A Almond
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The controlled manipulation of transcription factors, protein kinases and protein phosphatases is central to improving our understanding of cellular processes and, importantly, in the development of next-generation therapeutics for a variety of cancers.
  (A*STAR) Regulatory pathways and skin barrier function
  Dr S Cruickshank, Dr J Wong
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Maintaining a healthy skin barrier is vital for our health and in response to skin wounding, we have a well -orchestrated immune response that heals the breach.
  Regulation of appetite during inflammation and its functional implication for disease outcomes (Manchester-Melbourne Dual Award)
  Prof S Luckman, Dr G D'Agostino
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inflammation requires energy to fight infection and sustain immune responses, yet during inflammation there is a dramatic loss of appetite.
  Resolving the spatiotemporal events controlling effector T cell responses during malaria (Manchester-Melbourne Dual Award)
  Dr K Couper, Prof A MacDonald
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Malaria remains one of the most important diseases in the world, responsible for hundreds of thousands of deaths and significant morbidity and suffering in many millions of people, each year.
  Elucidating the signalling pathways important for antibody production and secretion in CHO cells
  Dr A Peden, Dr M Collins
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Constitutive secretion is a fundamental cellular process required for the delivery of newly synthesised proteins and lipids to the cell surface as well as the exocytosis of physiologically important molecules such as antibodies, cytokines and extracellular matrix proteins.
