Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Organoids are self-organised, 3D structures generated in vitro from adult or pluripotent stem cells, that exhibit similar functionality as their tissue of origin.
  Genetic mechanisms of chronic kidney disease
  Prof M Tomaszewski, Prof A Woolf
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is one of the most common complex disorders. The prevalence of CKD is on the rise in all populations around the globe and both the clinical and economic pressures of CKD on the healthcare systems increase exponentially.
  PhD positions in innovative application of x-rays in materials and tissue analysis

  4 Year funded PhD position: Toxic secretion by bacterial nanomachines
  Dr T Costa
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Type IV secretion systems (T4SS) are ubiquitous nanomachines that assemble at the bacterial inner and outer membranes to orchestrate the delivery of proteins and DNA into bacterial and eukaryotic cell targets.
  The role of oesophageal submucosal glands in epithelial homeostasis and the development of Barrett’s oesophagus
  Research Group: Cancer Biology & Surgical Oncology Laboratory
  Prof W. Phillips, Dr N. Clemons
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Barrett’s oesophagus, the premalignant precursor of oesophageal adenocarcinoma, is a metaplastic condition where the normal stratified squamous epithelium that lines the oesophagus is replaced by an intestinal-like columnar epithelium.
  3D tissue engineering-based model of craniosynostosis for identifying potential therapeutic targets that might enhance bone repair.
  Dr F O'Brien, Dr A Gonzalez Vazquez
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Craniosynostosis (CS) is a bone developmental condition that affects 1 in 2000 children worldwide. Children suffering with CS have premature fusion (bone formation) of the skull sutures, which restricts brain growth and may cause severe brain damage.
