  PhD: Microbial activity at the ice-soil interface in a High-Arctic setting
  Dr J Bradley, Dr A Jungblut, Prof K Heppell
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Summary. The Arctic is currently experiencing amplified effects of climate change, including dramatic warming, the widespread retreat of glaciers, and the thawing of permafrost.
  Transcription control and immune evasion in African trypanosomes
  Research Group: Division of Cell & Molecular Biology
  Prof G Rudenko
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Trypanosomes are unicellular eukaryotes which cause African Sleeping Sickness, which is endemic to subSaharan Africa. Trypanosomes can be easily grown as suspension cell lines in the laboratory, where they are straightforward to manipulate and genetically modify.
  Distribution modelling and the management and conservation of European ectomycorrhizal communities
  Dr M Bidartondo, Dr C D L Orme
Application Deadline: 23 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project, the student will develop cutting-edge distributional models of dominant ectomycorrhizal (ECM) fungal species across Europe and establish vital practice and policy recommendations for the monitoring, management and conservation of these ecologically critical organisms.
  Development of a Spores-on-a-Chip Microfluidic Chemostat for Exploring the Responsiveness of Bacterial Spore Communities
  Dr C Stanley
Application Deadline: 1 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Stanley Lab will be moving to the Department of Bioengineering at Imperial College London, the UK’s leading Bioengineering department, and has a fully funded PhD studentship to develop Spores-on-a-Chip microfluidic technology to gain a deeper insight into bacterial spore germination.
  Investigating host-microbial crosstalk, immunity and tissue repair at the intestinal barrier
  Research Group: Inflammation & Obesity
  Dr C Schiering
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fully funded 3.5 year PhD programme available in the lab of Dr. Chris Schiering at the London Institute of Medical Sciences.
  Investigating the role of gut microbes in regulating hallmarks of Ageing
  Research Group: Host-Microbe Co-Metabolism
  Dr F Cabreiro
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD Studentship is available at the MRC London Institute of Medical Sciences, under the supervision of Dr Filipe Cabreiro (Host-Microbe Co-Metabolism Group).
  Chromatin evolution – beyond histones
  Research Group: Molecular Systems
  Dr T Warnecke
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Across all domains of life, DNA is intimately associated with proteins that wrap, package, and protect it. Bacteria encode a variety of small basic proteins that are dynamically expressed and fulfil a variety of architectural roles by bridging, wrapping, or bending DNA.
  How does the microbiome affect behaviour? Discovering neuroactive compounds made by bacteria
  Research Group: Behavioural Genomics
  Dr A Brown
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The risk of psychiatric diseases and neurodegeneration is influenced by genetics and external environment. Increasingly, it is also thought to be influenced by the internal environment through gut microbes.
  Crop seed quality refinement with beneficial microbes
  Prof G Leubner, Dr T Steinbrecher
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Royal Holloway University of London’s (RHUL) Seed Science and Technology Group lead by Prof Gerhard Leubner is focused on improving crop seed quality and seedling performance by innovative seed refinement technologies.
  Global cellular controls in eukaryotic cells
  Dr P Nurse
Application Deadline: 12 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 4-year PhD studentship is offered in Dr Paul Nurse’s Group based at the Francis Crick Institute (the Crick). The laboratory is interested in the global networks that regulate the eukaryotic cell cycle, cell form and cell growth.
