  The role of the breast microenvironment in suppressing early cancer invasion
  Assoc Prof B Parker, Dr D Zanker
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) is a pre-invasive stage of breast cancer, whereby the tumour cells remain restrained by myoepithelial cells that surround breast ducts.
  Computational investigation of cell-shape signalling feedback during normal and pathological angiogenesis
  Dr K Bentley
Application Deadline: 17 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 4-year PhD studentship is offered in Dr Katie Bentley Group based at the Francis Crick Institute (the Crick). Our lab integrates computational and wetlab biology approaches to better understand the complex and often counter intuitive dynamics as endothelial cells coordinate and compete to grow new blood vessels.
  Evolution and conservation of membrane-associated effector proteins in plant pathogens
  Dr CN Meisrimler
Application Deadline: 25 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We seek a PhD candidate to join a 3-year research program based at the University of Canterbury (UC) to investigate the 3D structure of effector proteins targeting the membrane associated NAC transcription factors.
  The functional characterization of the tumour suppressor gene CSMD1 in breast cancer
  Dr S Bell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

CUB and Sushi multiple domains protein 1 (CSMD1) maps to 8p23, a region deleted in many cancers including breast cancer. Our previous work has established that CSMD1 is an independent prognostic marker in ductal breast cancer, with reduced expression associated with high tumour grade and poor survival1.
  ’Follow my leader’: in vitro studies of oral cancer cell motility
  Dr S Whawell, Dr H Colley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Oral cancer cell invasion is a crucial step in the progression of the disease and is mediated by interactions with the extra cellular matrix and factors released by the tumour cells as well as cells that occupy the tumour microenvironment (stroma).
  Characterisation of in vitro models of human salivary glands and their use in functional studies
  Dr L Bingle, Prof C Bingle
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Saliva is produced by three pairs of major salivary glands and multiple minor glands in the lips, associated with the tongue and also with the palate.
  (WIS) Deciphering escape from senescence in vivo
  Prof P Townsend, Prof A D Whetton
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Senescence is a dynamic cellular state characterised by a prolonged and generally irreversible cell-cycle arrest that promotes tissue remodelling but it can also have detrimental implications on regenerative capacities of tissues and conduce to inflammation and the progression of ageing-related disease including cancer.
  Does fatty acid uptake by oral cancer cells drive metastasis?
  Dr C Murdoch, Dr H Colley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The cell surface receptor CD36 belongs to a large scavenger receptor family that primarily bind lipid-containing molecules. Until recently their expression was thought to be restricted to macrophages and endothelial cells but recent data suggest that epithelial cancer cells may also express this receptor.
