  Precision Medicine DTP - A step change in sensitivity of Raman spectroscopy for accurate and rapid analysis of living cells
  Dr A Downes, Dr H Yin
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Most methods of cell characterization require a destructive or invasive test, without any real-time readout.
  Understanding the role that the RNA helicase UPF1 plays in sorting ribonucleoprotein (RNP) complexes and the mechanism by which this role of UPF1 might reduce cellular stress and cell degeneration.
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr S Brogna
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

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].
  Role of metal resistance in foodborne bacterial disease
  Dr J Morrissey, Prof J M Ketley
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Foodborne infectious diseases are frequent and growing public health problems worldwide (World Health Organisation).
  RNA metabolism in response to cellular stress
  Dr P Grzechnik, Dr S Brogna
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of the project is to understand roles for mRNA processing during the stress response in eukaryotic cells. Exposure to acute stress reduces cell viability or fitness and therefore immediate adaption is crucial for cell survival.
  Investigating Ohmic Heating as a novel food process on the deactivation of microbial cells, especially the spores.
  Dr T Miri, Dr T Overton, Dr H Onyeaka
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The traditional thermal processing method, which is widely used in the food industry, can certainly destroy microbial cells and provide safe food.
  Chemo-enzymatic Synthesis and Potential Applications of Novel Heterocyclic Alkaloids
  Dr H Deng, Dr L Trembleau
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is rising to dangerously high levels in all parts of the world. In Europe alone, drug-resistant bacteria are estimated to cause 25,000 deaths annually and cost more than US$1.5 billion every year in healthcare expenses and productivity losses.
  (BBSRC DTP) Optimisation of heteromeric protein complex formation via co-ordinated mRNA localisation
  Prof M Ashe, Dr M Pool, Prof C M Grant
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

RNA granules play key roles in cells controlling many aspects of mRNA fate. For instance, in response to stress the relocalisation of mRNAs to mRNA processing bodies (P-bodies) and stress granules facilitates the degradation or storage of unwanted or valuable mRNAs, respectively.
  China Scholarship Council: The molecular cell biology of Plant-Phytophthora interactions
  Prof P Birch, Dr P Boevink
Application Deadline: 15 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The School of Life Sciences at the University of Dundee, joint with the China Scholarship Council (CSC), is proud to be able to offer a scholarship programme for postgraduate research students.
  EASTBIO: Functional genomics for understanding behaviour and learning in a single-celled brainless blob, the slime mould Physarum polycephalum
  Dr M Wenzel, Prof D Lusseau, Prof P Schaap
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisors. Dr Marius Wenzel (University of Aberdeen). https://www.abdn.ac.uk/people/marius.wenzel. Professor David Lusseau (University of Aberdeen).
  Resistance isn’t futile: Dissecting adaptation and antimicrobial resistance in pathogenic fungi
  Dr D Childers, Prof C Munro
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

What will you investigate?. We have only four major classes of antifungals to treat life-threatening fungal infections, which even with treatment will claim over 1 million lives this year.
  Developing programmable DNA-guided endonucleases for genome engineering
  Prof M Mahfouz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bacterial and archaeal species are rich with proteins used for DNA processing or host defense. We aim to engineer some of these proteins and test their ability to generate double strand breaks in a programmed and site-specific fashion.
  Modelling memristive artificial neurons
  Prof S Saveliev, Dr P Borisov
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Does the brain operate as a computer? In short the answer is no, but why? We use logic when thinking and coming to a decision by linking events in a causal relationship.
  EMBL Australia Partnership PhD Program

Funding Type

PhD Type

Undertake interdisciplinary, postgraduate research for a PhD degree at Australia's top life science laboratories. Successful students will receive generous scholarships and travel grants while undertaking their PhD at an EMBL Australia laboratory in Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra or Adelaide.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Are microbes the hidden influencers? Unravelling the genomic network of host-microbe interactions
  Dr D Rico, Prof S Hambleton, Dr C Lamb, Prof R Hirt
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background and hypotheses. Each of us has a genome. The genome is the same in every cell of our organism but its three-dimensional (3D) structure is different in every cell type.
  (BBSRC DTP CASE) Microbial chassis engineering for next generation hydrocarbon biofuels manufacturing
  Prof N Scrutton, Dr S Hay
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The development of economically viable microbial biofuels is a consequence of global concerns about reducing carbon emissions, dwindling fossil fuel supply and the development of cost effective renewable and sustainable bio-based strategies.
