  Sex differences of ultra-endurance running: Profiling of female ultra-runners
  Dr H Moir
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ultra-endurance running has become increasingly popular, both in amateur and recreational athletes, with an exponential increase in the number of ultra-marathon finishers between 1998 and 2011 (Cejka et al., 2013; Hoffman & Krishnan 2013;).
  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.
  Understanding and combatting antimicrobial resistance plasmids
  Dr M Buckner, Dr J Blair
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a major crisis for human medicine. Globally, untreatable bacterial infections are rapidly increasing, leaving us with limited treatment options.
  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).
  Investigating the role of gut microbes in regulating hallmarks of Ageing
  Research Group: Host-Microbe Co-Metabolism
  Dr F Cabreiro
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD Studentship is available at the MRC London Institute of Medical Sciences, under the supervision of Dr Filipe Cabreiro (Host-Microbe Co-Metabolism Group).
  Role of RNA decay SKI complex in telomere maintenance, DNA damage response and human THES syndrome.
  Research Group: Telomere Replication & Stability
  Dr J B Vannier, Dr R Porreca
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

During DNA replication multiple factors are transiently recruited to facilitate the movement of the replisome, especially when the replication forks are hindered by DNA secondary structures (T-loop, G4, RNA/DNA hybrids) or protein/DNA complexes (Zimmermann et al.
  Microenvironmental interactions and regulation of their crosstalk in malignant B-cells by transcription factors
  Prof M Mráz
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are looking for a motivated PhD student that would like to work on the following project funded by the ERC (European Research Council) Starting grant.
  How cells transform cytosol-invading bacteria into anti-bacterial signalling platforms
  Dr F Randow
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The cytosol of mammalian cells appears an attractive niche for bacterial pathogens since it is rich in nutrients. However, perhaps surprisingly, most intracellular bacteria avoid the cytosol and rather reside inside membrane-surrounded vacuoles.
