  *EASTBIO* Adaptation in Exploratory Processes
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Prof K N Laland, Prof G Ruxton
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BBSRC Thematic Group. Frontier Bioscience. Organisms often respond to new challenges through ‘exploratory mechanisms’ (Gerhart & Kirschner, 1997), which are complex developmental systems that operate by generating variation (i.e.
  QUADRAT DTP: Actions of early life endocrine-disrupting chemical exposure on adult fish health using the zebrafish model
  Prof S Martin, Prof G Hardiman
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Landfills and other legacy waste sites in coastal zones are major sources of persistent organic pollutants (POPs), including polychlorinated biphenyl (PCBs), Perfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs), to transitional waters and marine environments.

  Chronic Wounds and Infection - impact on diabetic patients
  Research Group: Centre for Skin Sciences
  Dr M J Thornton, Dr J N Fletcher
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Non-healing chronic wounds present a significant clinical challenge. In Europe, the cost of wound management accounts for 2%–4% of the health care budget and the complications associated with impaired wound healing can have a significant, long-term effect on the morbidity, mortality, and quality of life for patients.
  MRC DTP 4 Year PhD Programme: Defining the signalling pathways regulating intraepithelial lymphocytes in the gut
  Dr M Swamy, Dr I Moraga Gonzalez
Application Deadline: 11 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is offered as part of the University of Dundee 4-year MRC DTP Programme “Quantitative and Interdisciplinary approaches to biomedical science”.
  Precision Medicine DTP - Harnessing plasticity to repair spinal cord injury
  Dr T Becker, Prof C G Becker, Prof A El Manira
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. After a spinal cord injury in the zebrafish, lost neurons are replaced and axonal connections re-established (Tsarouchas et al., 2018).
  Obtaining mechanistic insights into interplay of multiple effectors of oncogenic RAS molecules
  Dr K Tanaka, Dr A Revyakin
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The RAS family of small GTPases act as signalling hubs regulating cell proliferation and differentiation. Importantly, about 20% of all human cancers harbour mutations in RAS genes (COSMIC).
  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.
  Dynamics of ribosome synthesis during T-cell activation
  Research Group: Institute of Cell Biology
  Prof D Tollervey, Prof R Zamoyska
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ribosome synthesis plays a major role in cellular metabolism, consuming some ~80% of total transcription. Probably because of these high metabolic demands, ribosome synthesis is tightly linked to cell growth and division and numerous human diseases have been linked to defects in ribosome synthesis.
  EASTBIO The genetic basis of helminth-specific immune responses in wild Soay sheep (Ovis aries)
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr S Johnston, Dr T McNeilly, Prof D Nussey
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Individual differences in immune responses are widely observed in nature and are likely to be a major factor underlying variation in disease resistance, health and evolutionary fitness.
  Functional and –omics investigation of neutrophil activation in rheumatoid arthritis
  Dr HL Wright, Prof RJ Moots, Dr M Phelan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neutrophils are key effector cells in the pathogenesis of autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA), systemic lupus erythematosus and vasculitis.
  Development and Maturation of B cell Mediated Immune Responses
  Dr O Bannard
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We study the cellular interactions and molecular events that lead to the development of high affinity and protective antibodies during humoral immune responses.
  Gaming the system: how bacterial pathogens steal food from commensals
  Prof G H Thomas, Prof A J Wilkinson, Dr M van der Woude
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The mammalian gut is a complex environment where communities of bacteria. live together creating a robust microflora that protects us from infections.
  Metabolic control of T cell function
  Dr S Dimeloe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Current research interests in Sarah Dimeloe’s lab focus on the metabolism and interlinked immune function of T lymphocytes in health and disease.
