  Investigating the function of developmental regulators in early human embryogenesis and stem cells
  Dr K Niakan
Application Deadline: 12 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 4-year PhD studentship is offered in Dr Kathy Niakan’’s Group based at the Francis Crick Institute (the Crick). This project will characterise key regulators of human embryogenesis.
  Regulation of autophagy in human embryonic stem cells and its therapeutic application in induced pluripotent stem cell-based disease models
  Dr S Sarkar
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project background. Regulation of proteostasis is critical for maintaining tissue homeostasis. Autophagy, a major intracellular degradation pathway essential for cellular and energy homeostasis, functions in the clearance of aggregation-prone proteins and damaged organelles.
  Expanded potential stem cells for regenerative medicine, immunotherapy, and biotechnology
  Prof P Liu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Embryonic stem cells (ES cells) and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS cells) are pluripotent and thus hold great promise in regenerative medicine, studying disease mechanisms and drug discovery.
  A human ’mini-gut-on-a-chip’ to study microbial-epithelial cell interactions (SAEEDU20DTP)
  Dr A Saeed, Dr M R Williams
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human organoids are 3D fragments of adult tissues and ideally conserve all of the (stem) cell types and recapitulate all of the (patho)physiological processes associated with human health and disease.
  Understanding and predicting disease-associated mutations in dynamic and disordered regions of proteins
  Research Group: MRC Human Genetics Unit
  Dr J Marsh
Application Deadline: 13 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited from outstanding candidates to join the MRC Human Genetics Unit (HGU), part of the Institute of Genetics and Molecular Medicine (IGMM) at the University of Edinburgh.
  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.
  (MRC DTP) Developing a zebrafish model for a novel human neurodevelopmental disorder
  Prof G D Pavitt, Dr P Kasher, Dr S Banka
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. We have recently discovered a novel human disorder caused by mutations in the EIF5A1 gene resulting in developmental problems, small head size and craniofacial defects in children [1].
  The relationship between dietary iron and zinc, and the gut microbiota: Can dietary iron and zinc regime be exploited to improve health?
  Prof S C Andrews
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"The gut microbiota (100 trillion cells) outnumber human cells by 10 to 1. Its composition of around 500 to 1000 species is specific for each individual and is dynamic, changing with age, health and diet.
  Regulation of T cell immunity in human barrier tissues - PhD position in Munich
  Prof C Zielinski
Application Deadline: 15 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Technical University of Munich (TUM) is one of the most renowned Universities in Europe. The research group is located in a prestigious newly built research building, TranslaTUM, which is dedicated to interdisciplinary translational research.
  (MRC DTP) Building the human endometrium in vitro: The role of macrophages in receptive and decidual endometrium to optimise reproductive health
  Dr E Mann, Dr Peter Ruane, Prof J Aplin, Dr L Mohiyiddeen
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The human endometrium is a highly dynamic tissue that rapidly generates over ~20 days and differentiates to form a uterus lining receptive to embryo implantation, further transforming into decidua to support embryonic development, or breaking down before regenerating a few days later.
