  How do epigenetic modifications affect evolution in phytoplankton?
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr S Collins, Dr Attila Molnar
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Epigenetic modifications, such as DNA methylation and histone modifications, affect how organisms respond to environmental changes such as light or temperature variation.
  NERC GW4+ DTP CASE studentship: Competition amongst endemic lizard species on a tropical island (Round Island, Mauritius)
  Prof W Symondson, Dr I Vaughan, Dr P Orozco Ter Wengel
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Round Island, Mauritius, hosts a community of rare endemic lizard species. Their environment was cleared of most vegetation by introduced goats and rabbits (now eliminated).
  International Ph.D. Programs in the Life Sciences

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Life Science Zurich Graduate School consists of several highly competitive Ph.D. programs. We are run jointly by the ETH Zurich and the University of Zurich.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: The role of circular RNAs in the development and progression of Parkinson’s disease
  Dr M Jackson, Dr M Santibanez-Koref, Dr G Hudson, Dr O Izuogy
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the UK alone there are currently 145,000 people diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease (PD). In an increasingly aged population, this number is rising, with on average 2 people every hour told that they have PD.
  An ancient transcription factor controlling cuticle development and water transport in the liverwort Marchantia polymorpha
  Research Group: Institute of Molecular Plant Sciences
  Dr W J Goodrich, Dr C Kidner
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We identified a basic helix loop helix transcription factor (called ZOU) which is specifically expressed in the endosperm of seed in flowering plants.
  Dynamics of ribosome synthesis during T-cell activation
  Research Group: Institute of Cell Biology
  Prof D Tollervey, Prof R Zamoyska
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ribosome synthesis plays a major role in cellular metabolism, consuming some ~80% of total transcription. Probably because of these high metabolic demands, ribosome synthesis is tightly linked to cell growth and division and numerous human diseases have been linked to defects in ribosome synthesis.
  Evolutionary consequences of mutation rate variation in bacteria
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr H Alexander, Dr M El Karoui
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

As the ultimate source of new genetic variation, mutations fuel evolutionary change. Mutation rate is thus a key parameter determining how fast populations adapt to new environments, or even whether they survive a severe environmental challenge, such as antibiotic treatment in the case of bacteria.
  Ph.D. position in Plant Vascular Development
  Prof C Hardtke
Application Deadline: 30 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

A fully funded Ph.D. position is available (flexible starting date, 04/2020 or after). in the lab of Prof. Christian Hardtke at the Department of Plant Molecular Biology,.
  Control and inhibition of virus replication
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Dr A.K Tuplin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type


The Tuplin laboratory utilises a range of cutting-edge approaches to investigate how arboviruses - specificaly Chikungunya, Dengue and Zika viruses - control replication and translation of their genomes through interactions between RNA structures, host cell proteins and non-coding RNA, and the potential of such RNA elements/interactions as novel therapeutic targets.
  International PhD Academy: Medical Research
