  Evolution and biochemistry of photosynthesis - electron transfer reactions, renewable energy production, biotechnology, and chloroplast genomes
  Prof C J Howe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The common theme of our work is the biochemistry and evolution of photosynthesis.
  Accelerating molecular phylogenetic inference using high performance computing.
  Dr A Meade
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Molecular phylogenetic inference, constructing evolutionary histories from molecular data, is an activity universal to all biological disciplines.
  Imaging cancer response and resistance to therapy using the chick CAM and isolated perfused tumour
  Dr T Witney, Dr R Southworth
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Drug-resistance is a major obstacle for the effective treatment of patients with high grade metastatic cancer. Currently, there is no satisfactory way to identify patients that will respond and those that will fail standard-of-care therapy.
  The role of matrix interactions in regulating the SPARC family of matricellular proteins.
  Dr N Hill, Dr A Munasinghe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The SPARC family of matricellular proteins determine the way in which cells respond to their extracellular environment. SPARC family proteins interact with a range of binding partners, including matrix proteins (1).
  Genetic and molecular mechanisms of brain structural plasticity and neurodegeneration
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr A Hidalgo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project will test the potential of a molecular mechanism that we recently discovered, in modulating brain structural plasticity versus neurodegeneration.
  The genetic basis of cognitive impairment in intellectual disability and schizophrenia
  Prof C Inglehearn, Dr M Ali
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Schizophrenia is a chronic mental health condition affecting 1% of human populations, with symptoms that include visual and auditory hallucinations, delusions and disordered thought, leading to disruption of the sense of self.
  Biogenesis and functional mechanism of mitochondrial sulfhydryl oxidase proteins in health and disease
  Dr H Lu, Prof N Scrutton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mitochondrial sulfhydryl oxidases Erv1/ALR play an essential role in biogenesis of mitochondria – the power plant of eukaryotic cells.
  Biology and genetics of reproduction in filamentous fungi
  Prof P S Dyer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Filamentous fungi are of importance in the food, industrial and medical sectors and have important roles in the ecology of natural ecosystems.
  Defining the sequence requirements for neo-centromere function in the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe
  Dr W R A Brown, Dr W Wickstead
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Centromeres are the regions of the chromosome necessary for accurate segregation at cell division. They bind a complex set of proteins called the kinetochore which in turn tethers the chromosome to the microtubules of the spindle at cell division.
  Designing of novel biosensors using synthetic biology approaches
  Dr S Heeb
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Infectious diseases are still a major cause of death, disability and social and economic upheaval accounting for more than 11.9 million deaths a year worldwide.
