  Understanding molecular processes that control cell adhesion and migration
  Dr I Barsukov, Dr T Zech
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cells have an amazing ability to form complex tissues, differentiate and migrate. All these processes are controlled by a network of proteins that constantly change their activity and interactions in response to the environment.
  Molecular analysis of the dynamic sulfotyrosine proteome
  Prof C E Eyers, Prof P Eyers, Dr A R Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The survival of an organism depends upon the ability of different cell types to communicate with each other by assembling the correct complexes of proteins at the correct time in the correct place.
  Deep learning approaches to discover new roles for non-canonical protein modifications in cancer
  Prof C E Eyers, Prof A Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Abnormal protein phosphorylation is strongly associated with cancer aetiology. Considerable efforts have been undertaken to profile phosphorylation signalling networks acting through serine, threonine and tyrosine residues.
  Characterization and functional analysis of a novel cancer-associated gene
  Dr JP de Magalhaes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This opportunity will remain open until the position has been filled. In order to identify new candidate cancer-related genes, our lab developed a bioinformatics “guilt-by-association” method to identify and rank genes that are co-expressed with known cancer-related genes.
  Investigating the mechanisms driving meiotic gene re-expression in cancer
  Dr U McClurg, Dr W Wei Tee
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Meiosis is a specialised type of cell division which involves genome rearrangements. Many of the genes involved in meiotic homologous recombination are meiosis-specific however, they also constitute a latent toolbox of chromosome remodelling and recombination factors, which can be exploited by cancer cells.
  Investigation of the role of post-translational modifications in hypoxia signalling
  Dr V See, Prof C E Eyers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The hypoxia signalling pathway is required for the adaptation of cells to a low oxygen environment, which cells can experience in various physiological and pathological circumstances related to high altitude, development, wound healing and cancer.
  Validation of novel biomarkers for improved risk stratification and therapy for the paediatric cancer neuroblastoma
  Dr V See, Dr A Herrmann
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neuroblastoma is the second most common cancer in childhood but still has one of the lowest survival rates of all childhood malignancies.
  Exploring the role of meiotic proteins in cancer
  Dr U McClurg
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer is one of the main causes of death worldwide. The main challenge is the development of treatments specifically targeting cancers without killing healthy cells.
  Multi-omics investigations for enhanced understanding of NF-κB mediated drug resistance
  Prof R Goodacre, Prof N Perkins, Prof C E Eyers, Dr A R Jones
Application Deadline: 1 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We have an established system that can be used to investigate the role of NF-κB signalling in the cancer cell response to DNA replication stress and have generated cell lines which are resistant to treatment with a highly selective and specific CHK1 inhibitor (CCT244747).
  Targeting ageing: Genes and compounds with pro-longevity, health-preserving effects
  Dr JP de Magalhaes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ageing is arguably the major biomedical challenge of the 21st century. In model organisms, the process of ageing can be manipulated by both genetic manipulations and dietary interventions.
