  The mysterious microbial ecosystem beneath our feet: Unravelling the groundwater microbiology archive
  Mr J Sorensen
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This FRESH CDT project aims to provide the first overview of the UK’s groundwater microbial ecosystem. Groundwater constitutes 99% of all accessible freshwater on the planet and is a vital resource for public water supply in the UK.
  Do urine vesicles offer a fingerprint of Chronic Kidney Disease
  Dr E Verderio-Edwards
Application Deadline: 4 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

There are almost four million people in the UK affected by chronic kidney disease (CKD), a silent and progressive kidney damage for which there is no cure.
  Gene Regulation by the KAT6A/MOZ Histone Acetyltransferase
  Prof D Heery
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The human KAT6A and KAT6B genes encode the nuclear proteins MOZ and MORF, which are key gene regulators in development of blood, brain and other tissues.
  Tackling the fungal threat to global food security
  Prof S Avery, Dr M Brock
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fungi cause diseases of crops and spoilage of foods that cause losses of up to a third of food yield. This is a major global challenge given the world’s growing population and need for more food, while climate change is predicted to limit food supply in the future.
  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.
  Sequence variation and epigenomic mechanisms underlying human neuropsychiatric and neurodegenerative diseases
  Dr HM Knight
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is the decade of the ‘brain’ and this is also the decade of advancements in ‘genomic technologies’. This project aims to use cutting edge sequencing technologies to understand susceptibility to human disorders of the brain.
  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.
  DNA replication, recombination and repair in Archaea
  Dr T Allers, Dr E Bolt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Additional Supervisor. Anita Marchfelder (University of Ulm, Germany). Archaea are the third domain of life, alongside eukaryotes and bacteria.
  Natural toxins and their synthetic analogues as tools to study ion channels and as potential drugs and pesticides
  Dr I R Mellor
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project will use a combination of electrophysiological techniques such as voltage-clamp and patch-clamp with molecular biology and protein expression to understand how natural toxins and their synthetic analogues act on ion channels in the nervous system.
  Pyocins as alternatives to antibiotics against Pseudomonas aeruginosa infections
  Dr C Penfold
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pyocins are bacteriocins produced by Pseudomonas aeruginosa to kill closely related strains of the same species during times of environmental stress.
