  Developing methods for the analysis of chromosome conformation data
  Dr T Thorne
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chromosome conformational data allows us to investigate the three dimensional structure of the genome. This project will involve developing novel computational and statistical methods for the analysis of genomic contact data.
  Developing pipelines for the inference of gene regulatory networks
  Dr T Thorne
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gene regulatory networks are fundamental to many processes that take place in the cell. However learning the structure of these networks from high-throughput experimental data and deriving useful biological insights is challenging.
  A Nutrigenetics approach to study gene-diet interactions on Cardio-metabolic diseases in different ethnic groups
  Dr V Karani, Prof J Lovegrove
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"We are seeking a highly motivated candidate for a PhD project that will focus on genetic epidemiology and statistical genetics.
  Multi-omics data fusion for better understanding of host-microbe interactions in health and disease
  Dr A Wijeyesekera, Dr S Gweon
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"The rapid development and adoption of high-throughput, high resolution analytical technologies (e.g. genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics, metagenomics) has resulted in the generation of an avalanche of omics data.
  Accelerating molecular phylogenetic inference using high performance computing.
  Dr A Meade
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Molecular phylogenetic inference, constructing evolutionary histories from molecular data, is an activity universal to all biological disciplines.
  Bioinformatics analyses of unknown metagenomics fraction
  Dr S Gweon
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"DNA sequencing technology now allows us to investigate not only the identity of organisms that are present in complex environments like soil, but also what these tiny microbes are doing.
  Bioinformatics studies of protein structures, functions and their interactions
  Dr L J McGuffin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The computational study of protein structures, functions and their interactions is fundamental to our understanding of disease.
  Campylobacter genomics: host specific phenotypes and antibiotic resistance in the farmyard
  Dr S MacIntyre
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Campylobacteriosis is the primary cause of bacterial induced gastroenteritis in the UK. Contaminated retail poultry and meat is recognised as a primary source of infection.
  Microbiology and ecology of microbes in our rivers - their niche distribution and functional implications
  Dr S Gweon
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"The distributions of microorganisms in our rivers and their interactions play an important role to environment and human health.
  Multilevel selection on transposition rates in cancer
  Dr L J Johnson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer is an evolutionary process. Cells in a tumour vary due to mutation, and so over many generations they adapt in response to both intrinsic selective pressures (such as anoxia) and extrinsic selective pressures (such as chemotherapy).
