We are seeking exceptional and highly motivated candidates for an interdisciplinary PhD studentship aiming to identify non-coding RNAs that can be used for therapy to limit the development of heart failure. Potential therapeutic non-coding RNAs will be identified using the high content screening facility within our BHF Centre of Excellence. Those identified will then be evaluated after nanoparticle delivery in a mouse model of heart failure. In Dr Burgoyne’s lab the student will learn molecular and biochemical techniques, as well as in vivo cardiac models of heart failure. While Dr de Rosales’s lab will provide advanced training in nanoparticle delivery systems and in in vivo PET imaging.
The programme welcomes applications from a diverse range of backgrounds. Applicants will be reviewed on qualifications, experience and potential to undertake a research degree.
To be eligible for consideration applicants must possess, or be expected to achieve, a 1st or good upper 2nd class degree (or equivalent) in a relevant subject. A 2:2 degree may be considered only where applicants also offer a Master’s degree with Merit or above.
