Project Description

We are looking to recruit a student for a 4 year funded A*STAR PhD studentship in the area of multiciliogenesis. Defects in ciliogenesis and cilia function underpin many human diseases and the process of ciliogenesis is incompletely understood. Our previous bioinformatic and functional analysis has identified novel ciliogenesis candidate genes. This project will use a multispecies strategy to identify and validate the role of novel proteins in the ciliogenesis pathway. Such proteins may play role in the pathogenesis of human diseases associated will cilia defects. It will work with both in vivo and in vitro techniques. This proposal builds on a productive collaboration established through the joint supervision of a previous A*STAR student ( The student will spend up to two years working in Singapore.

Supervisor(s): Professor Colin Bingle (University of Sheffield), Dr Sudipto Roy (IMCB, A*STAR Singapore)

Proposed start date: 1st October 2019

Funding Notes

University of Sheffield/A*STAR Institute Singapore

The project is funded at UKRI rates, currently £15,009 p.a, whilst the student is in the UK. Whilst in Singapore the student will receive a stipend of 2500 SDG per month as well as additional allowances, including airfare, a settling-in allowance and medical insurance.
