  EASTBIO Mechanisms and functions of RNA interference in Cryptococcus neoformans
  Research Group: Institute of Cell Biology
  Dr E Bayne, Dr E Wallace
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

RNA interference is a fundamental mechanism of genome regulation mediated by small RNAs and conserved across eukaryotes. It can operate at both transcriptional and post-transcriptional levels, and plays important roles in controlling gene expression and genome stability.

  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.
  Temperature regulation of non-coding RNA and crop - rhizosphere interactions
  Dr J Dalzell, Dr FL Liu
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Crop plants manipulate rhizosphere interactions through the release of root exudates. Whilst root exudates can attract beneficial microbes, they are also exploited by pathogens and plant parasitic nematodes (PPNs).
  Cloning and expression of topoisomerase genes from Trypanosoma brucei (SteverdingD-2U19SF)
  Dr D Steverding
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Topoisomerases (TOPs) are essential enzymes that catalysis topological changes in DNA. TOPs are pivotal to cell survival and therefore inhibitors have been developed to target these enzymes both for antimicrobial and anti-cancer chemotherapy.
  EASTBIO: The role of secreted tumour suppressor SPZ1 in Papillomavirus E7-mediated oncogenesis
  Prof J Haas, Dr K Cuschieri
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Deanery of Biomedical Sciences. Currently, 112 different non-human papillomavirus (PV) types are known, which have been isolated from a broad range of 54 host species including cattle, canines, horses, rodents, bats, dolphins and primates.
  Validating gene essentiality using functional genomics
  Dr N Young, Prof RB Gasser
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Parasitic worms (helminths) cause some of the world’s most neglected diseases, affecting billions of animals and people worldwide.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Is less sometimes more? Balancing immunity, homeostasis and healthy ageing
  Dr I Evans, Dr M J P Simons
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The cells of our immune system perform key roles, such as shaping our bodies as they develop, fighting-off infection, and repairing tissues.
