  Virus evolutionary strategies: the role of mutations in facilitating successful transmission in multiple host systems.
  Dr N Forrester-Soto
Application Deadline: 15 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Viruses emerging from endemic cycles remain a huge threat, as demonstrated by the recent emergence of Zika virus (ZIKV) and Chikungunya virus (CHIKV).
  Design and Development of Artificial Nerve Grafts
  Dr K Andrews
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Reference Number. EMRC-KDA-2018-2-PhD. Project Summary. There is a lack of viable treatment options for nerve damage and disease in humans.
  A genetic investigation of human and non-human remains from Hadrian’s Wall and the northern frontier of the Roman empire (ref: SF18/APP/GRAHAM)
  Dr E Graham
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over the past decade, advances in genetic technologies have made it possible to determine much more information from a sample of DNA.
  New Privilege nutrients of Human Gut Microbiota from Western Diet (ref: SF18/APP/Munoz)
  Dr J Munoz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The human large bowel contains ~1013 bacteria, referred to as the human gut microbiota or HGM. There is considerable interest in deploying prebiotic and probiotic strategies to maximise the impact of the HGM on human health.
  Eukaryotic gene expression: understanding the role of UPF1 in global mRNA processing and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
  Dr S Brogna
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project’s specific objective is to study the molecular role(s) that the RNA helicase UPF1 plays in RNA processing. UPF1 is a key player in nonsense-mediated mRNA decay (NMD), it is universally conserved in eukaryotes and is essential to the development of many organisms [1].
  PhD Scholarship in molecular biology of plant stress adaptation: The role of the membrane-associated NAC transcription factors
  Prof IA Dickie
Application Deadline: 21 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

We seek a PhD candidate to join a 3-year research program based at the University of Canterbury (UC) to investigate the role of membrane associated NAC transcription factors in plant stress adaptation.
  EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Sustainable Approaches to Biomedical Science: Responsible and Reproducible Research - SABS

Funding Type

PhD Type

Good degree in the Physical or Life Sciences? Interested in biological or medical research? We offer fully-funded PhD places across the Oxford Doctoral Training Centre programmes.
  Hijacking of host cellular functions and metabolism in MRSA pathogenesis
  Dr M Letek, Dr V Behrends, Dr Y Calle
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited from potential PhD candidates to work at the Department of Life Sciences, University of Roehampton, supervised by Dr Michal Letek, Dr Volker Behrends, and Dr Yolanda Calle-Patino.
  Engineering Microbial Communities for Biotechnology and Bioremediation
  Dr J Pandhal
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microbial biotechnology is usually undertaken by a single species in a fermenter. However, some processes are metabolically challenging for a single species and therefore more suited to communities of microbes.
  Towards more sustainable use of phosphorus in UK grasslands considering soil-plant interactions
  Dr V Niasar, Prof D Johnson, Dr S Lee
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This ambitious project will lead to a major shift in how soil phosphorus (P), is managed in UK grasslands.
