  Reprogramming stomatal behaviour to reduce water use in crops
  Prof L Sweetlove, Prof R G Ratcliffe
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Future food security will depend on developing crop plants that are as efficient as possible in their utilisation of finite resources such as water.
  EASTBIO: Gut microbiota mediates distinct metabolic effects through dietary fibre fermentation.
  Dr A Ross, Prof P Morgan
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisors. Dr Alexander Ross (University of Aberdeen). https://www.abdn.ac.uk/rowett/research/alexander-ross.php. Professor Peter Morgan (University of Aberdeen).
  EASTBIO: The impact of soft-fruit phytochemicals on the gut microbiome and bile acid metabolism.
  Dr A Kolb, Dr G McDougall, Dr K Scott, Dr C D Mayer
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisors. Dr Andreas Kolb (University of Aberdeen). http://www.abdn.ac.uk/rowett/research/andreas-kolb.php. Dr Gordon McDougall (The James Hutton Institute).
  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).
  Development of gene therapies for muscular dystrophies
  Dr L Popplewell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The activities in the Popplewell lab focus on the development of pre-clinical gene therapies for neuromuscular diseases, in particular muscular dystrophies based on gene replacement, endonuclease-mediated gene editing, antisense oligonucleotide (AO)-induced exon skipping and gene sliencing.
  Function of miRNAs in formation and regeneration of human hair follicles
  Dr S Kurinna, Dr S Herrick, Prof R Paus
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent advances in treating a severe skin condition with autologous transgenic keratinocyte cultures emphasises the importance of molecular mechanisms in selecting subpopulations of skin cells for cutaneous repair [1].
  Live-imaging and genetic approaches to explore cross-talk between tissue damage, immune dysfunction and infection within novel animal models of cystic fibrosis
  Dr H Weavers, Prof E Mahenthiralingam, Dr D N Sheppard
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a genetic disorder driven by mutations in the CFTR (Cystic Fibrosis Transmembrane Conductance Regulator) gene.
  Do diatoms feel cold? Mechanisms of temperature sensing in temperate and polar diatoms (WHEELERUMBA20ARIES)
  Dr G Wheeler, Prof T Mock, Dr K Helliwell
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND. Diatoms are single-celled algae that are able to inhabit diverse marine environments, including habitats that experience significant fluctuations in temperature and salinity, such as estuaries.
  Understanding how altered GABA signalling in the brain’s master clock contributes to circadian rhythm disruption in Alzheimer’s disease. PhD in Medical Studies (MRC GW4 BioMed DTP)
  Dr M Belle
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisory team. Dr Mino Belle, Institute of Biomedical and Clinical Science, Medical School, University of Exeter. Dr James Hodge, Faculty of Life Sciences, University of Bristol.
  That sinking feeling - how do marine diatoms actively control sinking rates?
  Dr G Wheeler, Prof C Moore, Dr K Helliwell
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Diatoms are one of the most important groups of phytoplankton in our oceans and make a major contribution to the global carbon cycle.
  Transcriptional battles in plant-pathogen interactions: understanding and re-wiring gene regulatory networks to enhance disease resistance
  Prof K Denby, Prof I A Graham
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The severity of plant disease is determined by a battle between pathogen virulence and host plant immunity – understanding this relationship is key to developing sustainable methods of pathogen control.
