  Obtaining mechanistic insights into interplay of multiple effectors of oncogenic RAS molecules
  Dr K Tanaka, Dr A Revyakin
Application Deadline: 7 June 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).
  Detection in cells of protein interactions on pre-mRNA during the regulation of splicing
  Prof I C Eperon, Dr S Cowley
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.
  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.
  Cerebellar control of aggression
  Dr W NORTON, Dr J McDearmid
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research in our laboratory investigates the genes and neural circuits that control aggression, an adaptive behaviour that animals use to establish social hierarchies and fight for resources such as food or territory.
  Behavioural, tomographic and biomechanical analysis of socially induced changes in body and brain structure in desert locusts
  Dr S Ott, Dr T Matheson, Prof J Pan
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

All animals can tailor their phenotype to the environmental conditions they experience during their lifetime. Such phenotypic plasticity typically entails concerted changes in morphology, physiology and behaviour.
  Neuronal coupling across spatiotemporal scales and dimensions of cortical population activity
  Dr M Okun, Dr J Liu
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The human cortex is the most complex known system. It is responsible for a vast range of sensorimotor, decision making, and other cognitive abilities of humans and other mammals.
  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.
  Plant and crop fertility: the evolution and impact of gene control networks
  Research Group: Midlands Integrative Biosciences Training Partnership (MIBTP)
  Prof D Twell, Dr R Badge
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plant fertility is vitally dependent upon sexual reproduction and the differentiation of the male (sperm) and female (egg) gametes.
  Role of metal resistance in foodborne bacterial disease
  Dr J Morrissey, Prof J M Ketley
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Foodborne infectious diseases are frequent and growing public health problems worldwide (World Health Organisation).
  Molecular mechanisms of genomic imprinting in an insect
  Dr E Mallon, Dr C Tufarelli, Dr E Rosato
Application Deadline: 7 June 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.
  Genome association studies to detect genetic determinants of virulence traits of invasive meningococcal disease isolates with age stratification
  Dr C D Bayliss
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neisseria meningitidis is the major cause of bacterial meningitis but is also widespread as an asymptomatic coloniser of human oropharyngeal tissues.
  Midlands Integrative Biosciences Training Partnership (MIBTP) Funded PhD Studentships

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Midlands Integrative Biosciences Training Partnership (MIBTP) is a BBSRC-funded doctoral training partnership between five research-intensive universities, the University of Warwick, the University of Birmingham, the University of Leicester, Aston University, and Harper Adams University.
