Showing 1 to 10 of 27
  Determining the translational potential of the highly phosphorylated proto-oncogene PBF
  Dr V Smith
Applications accepted all year round
In order to translate the many molecular alterations now detectable in human tumours into effective clinical management we need to fully understand their impact on tumour biology.
  Promoting positive parenting: Evaluating the impact of ‘kitbag’ tools and strategies to promote maternal and child mental health in diverse settings.
  Dr M Clark
Applications accepted all year round
Applications are invited for a 3-year full time or 5 year part time /self-funded PhD Studentship starting February 2019. Maternal and child mental health is a global public health priority (WHO 2013, WHO 2018).
  Cleavage of receptor protein tyrosine phosphatases: mechanisms and consequences
  Dr D Cunningham, Dr M Tomlinson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
This project aims to establish a new paradigm in cell signalling by showing how cell surface-anchored phosphatases can be converted into distinct cytoplasmic phosphatases by a cleavage event, thus effectively doubling a cell’s phosphatase repertoire.
  The role of recruiting epigenetic regulators by the LMO2 complex in making cell fate choices
  Dr M Hoogenkamp
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
The three germ layers give rise to the approximate 200 different cell types found in mouse and man. The cardiovascular system, including the blood, is derived from the mesoderm.
  Structure and function of tetraspanin complexes involved in autophagy.
  Dr F Berditchevski
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
This project offers the opportunity to elucidate the structure and molecular interactions of a novel tetraspanin complex involved in autophagy.
  Statistical and Molecular Genetics of Complex Traits
  Prof Z Luo
Applications accepted all year round
Most characters of any living organism are polygenically controlled and environmentally modified, including those threatening human health and those important in breeding for high yield, better quality and improved adaption of animals, plants and microbes.
  Termination of DNA replication: mechanism and importance
  Dr A Gambus, Dr M Saponaro
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Cell division is the basis for the propagation of life and requires accurate duplication of all genetic information. DNA replication must be precisely regulated as unrepaired mistakes can change cell behaviour with potentially severe consequences, such as genetic disease, cancer and premature ageing.
  Interplay between RNA Pol II transcription and DNA replication
  Dr M Saponaro, Dr M Higgs
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Background. RNA Pol II transcription and DNA replication are the two essential processes that use as a substrate the DNA in our cells, allowing them to express the content of their genetic information and to propagate these instructions to daughter cells.
  BBSRC MIBTP - Transcriptional responses to cellular stress
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr PG Grzechnik, Dr S Brogna
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Position for a PhD student is available in the group of Dr Pawel Grzechnik at the University of Birmingham. The aim of the project is to understand how eukaryotic cells remodel RNA biology in order to survive stress generated by pathological conditions and external stressors.
  BBSRC MIBTP: Roles of transcriptional factors in RNA:DNA hybrids formation
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr PG Grzechnik, Dr Aditi Kanhere
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Position for a PhD student is available in the group of Dr Pawel Grzechnik at the University of Birmingham. The aim of the project is to uncover novel roles for transcriptional factors and to investigate how mRNA 3’ end maturation alters gene expression in human cells.
