Funding Type

PhD Type

We are pleased to invite candidates to apply for our PhD studentship investigating the role of cell cycle protein regulation in preventing cell division errors that lead to infertility and miscarriage in women.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: A New Front in Microbial Warfare—Delivery of Antifungal Effectors by the Type VI Secretion System
  Prof J Quinn, Dr C Stewart
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The type VI secretion system (T6SS) is widely used by bacteria to fire diverse effector proteins directly into neighbouring target cells.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Understanding dysregulated repair in lung disease through precise laser injury and quantitative analysis of live cell behaviours in a human airway epithelial model
  Dr C Ward, Dr R Tetley, Dr J Garnett
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Noncommunicable diseases, including chronic respiratory diseases, are responsible for 63% [36 million] of all deaths worldwide, making improved understanding and research an international priority.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Combining senolytic treatment with exercise to prevent the development of sarcopenia
  Dr S Miwa, Prof A McArdle, Prof T von Zglinicki
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020
