FULLY FUNDED PHD: Understanding how intestinal inflammation contributes to systemic inflammation in seronegative arthritis.

Project Description


Applications are invited for a four-year full time PhD studentship within The Research into Inflammatory Arthritis Centre Versus Arthritis (RACE), starting October 2020.

Using samples from individuals with seronegative inflammatory disease, we will investigate the mechanisms connecting the intestine with systemic inflammatory pathology.

This project will be based in Glasgow, but will make use of technologies and expertise through collaborations with RACE investigators in Birmingham, Newcastle and Oxford.

We will use multi-dimensional analysis of blood samples to identify cellular and molecular mechanisms connecting intestinal and systemic pathology, and will explore these using intestinal biopsies from patients who have experienced both intestinal and systemic symptoms.

The student and the project will be based in Glasgow, but specific experiments will be performed using samples and techniques RACE collaborators in Newcastle, and Oxford.

This project is part of the RACE programme RACE is a collaboration between the Universities of Birmingham, Glasgow, Newcastle and Oxford, with funding and support from Versus Arthritis.

The programme capitalises on the expertise of the contributing academic institutions, and offers an outstanding opportunity for students to undertake excellent project-based research training within world-class research environments.

Applicants will normally be expected to reside (or have residency) within the UK/EU. Applicants should have obtained, or expect to obtain a 2:1 or 1st Class Honours degree in a relevant subject.


Funding Notes

Support includes an annual stipend at RCUK rates for 4 years, PhD registration fees at UK/EU student rate, research expenses and travel costs.
