Showing 1 to 10 of 136
  Understanding transcription mediated methylation of intragenic CpG islands in health and disease
  Dr C Tufarelli, Prof S Cowley
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
1. Project outline describing the scientific rationale of the project (max 4,000 characters incl. spaces and returns). DNA methylation is an epigenetic modification that affects gene expression without altering gene sequences.
  Harnessing large-scale genomic sequencing data to understand smoking behaviour
  Dr C Batini
Applications accepted all year round
In 2018 it has been announced that both whole exome sequences and whole genome sequences will be analysed in the 500K individuals in UK Biobank over the next two to five years.
  Genetic variants associated with multiple diseases
  Prof M Tobin
Applications accepted all year round
As increasing numbers of genetic associations are discovered, it is becoming clear that some genetic variants are associated with more than one or human phenotype (including disease phenotypes).
  Impact of hypermutable sequences on microbial elicitation and evasion of host immune responses
  Dr C D Bayliss
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019
Non-typeable Haemophilus influenzae (NTHi) cause multiple human diseases including otitis media, the commonest bacterial infection in children.
  Genotype-to-structure: analysis of the glycosylation of the flagella of Campylobacter jejuni, a major cause of food-borne gastroenteritis
  Dr C D Bayliss, Prof J Ketley
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Campylobacter jejuni is the major causative agent of foodborne gastroenteritis across Europe. Contaminated chicken meat is the main source of infections and hence control of this pathogen is critical to food security in the poultry industry.
  PhD Studentship: Modelling Polymeric Materials in Spontaneously Flowing Biofluids

Application Deadline: 1 February 2019
Reference number. TAN/MA/2018. Start date of studentship. 1st April 2019. Closing date of advert. 1th February 2019. Supervisors.
  Improving overheating risk assessment procedures in urban dwellings
  Dr C Hopfe
Application Deadline: 3 January 2019
Reference number. ABCE18/CH. Start date of studentship. 1 April 2019. Closing date of advert. 3 February 2019. Interview date. tbc.
  Exploring the pathogenic roles of Rab GTPases in models of taupathy
  Prof F Giorgini, Prof C P Kyriacou
Application Deadline: 28 January 2019
Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common neurodegenerative disorder and the predominant cause of dementia. The main pathological hallmarks of the disease in the brain are the presence of amyloid plaques and neurofibrilliary tangles composed of hyperphosphorylated forms of tau (P-tau).
  3D printing of proteins for biopharmaceuticals
  Dr X Han
Application Deadline: 1 October 2019
The sales of biopharmaceuticals and biotherapy from only Humira, Remicade, and Enbrel are over $18 billion in US in 2015. Protein therapy is expected to make about $250 billion in savings for US over the next 10 years.
