  Determining the epidemiology and molecular evolution of antimicrobial drug resistance in Cape Verde
  Dr S Beleza, Prof MR Oggioni
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cape Verde is an archipelago located 450 km off the coast of Senegal, that was found uninhabited by the Portuguese in the mid-15th century.
  Epigenetics in the microbial world
  Prof M Oggioni, Dr A Morozov
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

New technologies have opened a whole new world relative to non-genetic epigenetic mechanisms for gene regulation both in eukaryotes and prokaryotes.
  Exploring the functional and pathological relevance of DJ-1 phosphorylation
  Prof F Giorgini
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

DJ-1 is a small conserved protein of 189 residues which is ubiquitously expressed and primarily localized to the cytoplasm, but also found in the nucleus and associated with mitochondria.
  Molecular mechanisms of genomic imprinting in an insect
  Dr E Mallon, Dr C Tufarelli, Dr E Rosato
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Genomic imprinting is a phylogenetically widespread phenomenon, and genes have been shown to be imprinted in mammals, plants, and fungi, as well as insects.
  Network interactions shape the circadian clock in Drosophila melanogaster
  Dr E Rosato, Prof C P Kyriacou
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The circadian clock is an endogenous mechanism that synchronizes almost all behaviour and physiology with the Earth’s 24 hour environmental cycles.
  Plant and crop fertility: the evolution and impact of gene control networks
  Prof D Twell, Dr R Badge
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will explore the conservation and mechanisms by which the DUO1-DAZ1 module coordinates cell proliferation with sperm differentiation.
  Role of the microbiome in neurodegenerative disease
  Prof J Ketley, Prof F Giorgini
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The human microbiome is essential for human health as it is crucial for the development of immunity, tissue development, host metabolism and protection from various infectious diseases.
  Structural and functional analysis of the meiotic synaptonemal complex
  Dr J Higgins, Prof E Louis
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Meiotic recombination generates novel allelic combinations that may be selected in the progeny. It is therefore essential for evolution, whilst also necessary for accurate chromosome segregation and gamete formation in sexually reproducing organisms.
  The effect of air pollution on the behaviour of bacteria
  Dr J Morrissey, Prof J Ketley, Prof P W Andrew, Prof P Monks
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is at the cutting edge of investigations of the increase in infection resulting from airborne pollution. Air pollution is the world’s largest single environmental health risk, being responsible for an eighth of all global deaths per year (World Health Organisation, 2017).
  The effect of air pollution on the interaction between bacteria and bacteriophage
  Dr J Morrissey, Prof M Clokie, Dr A Millard
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Air pollution is the world’s largest single environmental health risk, being responsible for an eighth of all global deaths per year (World Health Organisation, 2017).
