  Grazing and disturbance as management tools in coastal wetlands: consequences for soil organic matter, biodiversity and functional resilience
  Dr A Keith
Application Deadline: 9 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Application details. Reference number. CENTA20-LU15. Start date. 1 October 2020. Closing date. 9 June 2020. Interview date. Week beginning 22 June 2020.
  The effects of cannabinoids on pre- and post-synaptic activity during learning
  Prof N Hartell, Dr M Hamann
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

General Background. Learning and adaptation of behaviour requires long-term changes in the strength of synaptic transmission that in turn lead to alterations in the patterns of neuronal firing.
  Cryo-Electron Microscopy of Histone Deacetylase Complexes
  Prof J Schwabe, Dr S Cowley
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Histone deacetylase complexes play a role in many cellular processes, such as cancer, cell cycle progression and DNA repair. Investigating how these HDAC complexes act to control gene expression and their interactions with other proteins should lead to an understanding of their influence in the cell.
  Revealing molecular mechanisms of gene silencing
  Dr T Schalch, Dr S Cowley
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Regulation of transcription through chromatin architecture is governed by nucleosome remodelers and chromatin modifying complexes.
  Use of single molecule fluorescence and cryo-EM to study the regulation of RNA splicing
  Prof I C Eperon, Dr A Hudson
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the biggest challenges in molecular biology is presented by the selection of sites for RNA splicing. We cannot overstate its importance or apparent complexity.
  Network interactions shape the circadian clock in Drosophila melanogaster
  Dr E Rosato, Prof C P Kyriacou
Application Deadline: 7 June 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.
  Exploring the functional and pathological relevance of DJ-1 phosphorylation
  Prof F Giorgini
Application Deadline: 7 June 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.
  The evolution of the neurogenic gene regulatory networks in Bilateria
  Dr R FEUDA, Dr E Rosato
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The evolution of the nervous system is one of the most important innovations in the evolutionary history of animals. Because neurons are present in deuterostome (e.g.
  Discovery and modelling of common molecular mechanisms disrupting hearing in genetic mutations associated with hearing loss
  Prof I D Forsythe, Dr A Lecchini-Visintini
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Objectives. Determine the cellular and molecular changes in the auditory brainstem of mice carrying genetic mutations associated with hearing loss and language development and use modelling to evaluate common mechanisms.
  Epigenetics in the microbial world
  Prof M Oggioni, Dr A Morozov
Application Deadline: 7 June 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.
  The effect of air pollution on the interaction between bacteria and bacteriophage
  Dr J Morrissey, Prof M Clokie, Dr A Millard
Application Deadline: 7 June 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).
  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: 7 June 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).
  Bacteriophages
  Dr A Millard, Prof M Clokie
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bacteriophages are the most abundant entity on the planet and are known to drive the evolution of their bacterial hosts. Bacteriophages are known to convert harmless bacteria into pathogens by a process known as phage conversion.
  Role of the microbiome in neurodegenerative disease
  Prof J Ketley, Prof F Giorgini
Application Deadline: 7 June 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.
  Characterising Clostridium difficile defence strategies against bacteriophages
  Prof M Clokie, Dr A Millard
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Healthcare associated infections are a major problem for patients and a global health challenge.
