  Atmospheric dispersion of greenhouse gases using novel tracers - MScR in Global Environmental Challenges
  Prof S O'Doherty, Dr M Rigby, Prof P Simmonds
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

About the Project. Emissions of greenhouse gases are now widely recognised as a potential threat to the long-term stability of the Earth’s climate.
  Data mining for microbial adaptation to climate change - MScR in Global Environmental Challenges
  Dr G Barker
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

About the Project. Microbes are key members of nutrient and energy cycles in all global ecosystems. Whole meta genome DNA sequencing is increasingly used to characterise microbial ecosystems and vast amounts of data are deposited in the public domain every year.
  Does CO2 Enrichment of Temperate Forests also Affect Soil N Cycling and the Emission of Nitrous Oxide (N2O)? - MScR in Global Environmental Challenges
  Dr J House, Dr F Sgouridis
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

About the Project. Increasing atmospheric CO2 concentrations in temperate forests may affect soil nitrogen (N) cycling processes due to the increased demand for nitrogen availability by tree photosynthesis.
  (Photo)Synthetic Biology - Engineering Biohybrid Photosystems For Enhanced Solar Energy Conversion in Devices
  Dr M R Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is growing interest in the use of photosynthetic proteins in devices for solar energy conversion, biosensing, photosensing, photocatalysis, touch sensing, molecular electronics and biodegradable solar cells.
  Actin-dependent mechanisms of chromosome segregation in mammalian eggs
  Dr B Mogessie
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Every human life starts when an egg is fertilised by a sperm. Fertilisable eggs are produced from oocytes by a specialised form of cell division called meiosis (1).
  Adhesion Pathways in Extracellular Matrix Organisation
  Prof J Adams
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The extracellular matrix (ECM) provides structural and mechanical support to tissues and modulates cell phenotype and behaviour in health and disease.
  Chromatin and maintenance of genome stability
  Dr A Chambers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Within eukaryotes, DNA is packaged into chromatin. The basic unit of chromatin is the nucleosome, formed by the wrapping of ~147 bp of DNA around an octamer of histones proteins.
  Cytoskeletal dynamics and intracellular trafficking in angiogenesis
  Prof H Mellor
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Angiogenesis is the fundamental physiological process by which new blood vessels are generated from pre-existing vasculature.
  Effects of transcription on genome stability
  Prof N J Savery
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Transcription-coupled DNA repair (TCR) pathways prioritise the repair of certain lesions in "active" genes. These pathways help maintain genome integrity throughout the lifetime of multi-cellular organisms, and thus help prevent the occurrence of mutation that might cause cancer or other disorders.
  Elucidating the mechanism of SMC complexes
  Prof M Dillingham
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The segregation of bacterial chromosomes is orchestrated by the co-ordinated actions of ParB and condensin [1]. ParB (also called Spo0J) is a site-specific DNA binding protein that binds at and around parS sequences near the origin of replication to form “ParB networks” which define the bacterial centromere [2].
