  A multi-tissue in vitro model of osteoarthritis
  Prof M.P. Lewis, Dr D Player
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Osteoarthritis (OA) is a joint disorder which is predominantly found in elderly individuals (Lee et al., 2013), but has recently been linked to sports participation at high levels (Vannini et al., 2016).
  The role of endogenous retroviruses in human health and disease
  Dr G Magiorkinis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

More than 10 years have passed since the first high quality (nearly) complete version of the human genome and we are still exploring its functionality.
  Plant responses to stress, metabolites for health and fuel from cell walls.
  Prof A Devoto
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Projects are available in the following areas. Stress responses in crops and sustainable biomass production and processing. The project aims at elucidating several aspects of the control of plant defences and to identify environmentally friendly forms of plant protectants, leading to enhanced crop yields.
  Epitranscriptomic mechanisms in the maternal to zygotic transition of vertebrate embryos
  Dr M Soller, Prof F Mueller
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most mRNAs contain modified nucleotides in mRNA, but we know very little about their function (Haussmann et al, 2016, Dezi et al, 2016, Roignant and Soller, 2017).
  Modulation of cardiovascular progenitor stem cell development by targeting VEGF receptors
  Research Group: School of Biomedical Sciences
  Dr A.J. Smith, Dr S Ponnambalam
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will elucidate mechanisms underlying repair and regeneration of cardiac tissues and damaged blood vessels, by assessing functional requirement for specific vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) receptors.
  Signalling pathways maintaining human embryonic stem cells
  Prof S J Kimber, Prof D Brison
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to determine the function of novel genes predicted to have critical roles in preimplantation human development and in disease in later life.
  Machine learning food webs from next-generation sequence data
  Dr D Bohan, Dr A Tamaddoni-Nezhad, Dr A Raybould
Application Deadline: 20 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Developments in next-generation sequencing (NGS) of DNA, to identify species present in environmental samples, holds out the possibility that we could use these samples as ecological data.
  The role of fibroblasts in skeletal muscle ageing (SSEHS/NM)
  Dr N Martin, Prof M.P. Lewis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Loughborough University is a top-ten rated university in England for research intensity (REF2014) and an outstanding 66% of the work of Loughborough’s academic staff who were eligible to be submitted to the REF was judged as ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’, compared to a national average figure of 43%.
  Detoxification of diterpene resin acids by the pine weevil (Hylobius abietis)
  Prof J Gershenzon, Prof E. Kothe, Dr A Schmidt
Application Deadline: 24 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Many insect species feed on plants containing toxic defense compounds without any apparent negative effects. Since many such insects are important agricultural or forestry pests, scientists have been making intensive efforts to discover how insects can overcome chemical defenses.
  Tapping into signaling interactions between nematodes and aphids
  Prof N VanDam, Dr G Kunert
Application Deadline: 24 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. In natural environments, plants are commonly infested by both aboveground and belowground pests. This causes interactions between shoot and root herbivores via systemic induced responses.
