  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Killing the unkillable. Developing bacterial capture compounds to identify new targets against antimicrobial resistant Staphylococcus aureus
  Dr R Corrigan, Dr D Williams
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The “superbug”, Methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is a major threat to global health. Once inside a host, bacteria, like S.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: How do non-coding enhancer RNAs confer genetic risk in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)?
  Dr Dan Bose, Dr J Cooper-Knock
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project. Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is an aggressive neurodegenerative disease with no effective therapy. The established genetic causes of ALS can only explain a small fraction of the observed disease phenotypes.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Targeting ageing mitochondrial metabolism with dietary interventions to combat colorectal cancer
  Dr M J P Simons, Dr K Campbell, Dr L Greaves
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Colorectal cancer is the second most common cause of death by cancer in the UK. Diet in particular, impacts on colorectal cancer development.
  BBSRC White Rose DTP Studentship - Regulatory potential of 3’UTR introns in stem cell differentiation
  Dr I Sudbery, Dr I Barbaric
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gene regulation is at the heart of many biological processes, including the processes by which embryonic stem cells differentiate to become adult tissues.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Development of an automated analysis pipeline to study bacterial cell wall structure and resistance to beta-lactam antibiotics
  Dr S Mesnage, Dr M Collins
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The most widely used antibiotics ever discovered (beta-lactams) are targeting the enzymes that polymerize peptidoglycan (PG), the essential component of the bacterial cell wall.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Is less sometimes more? Balancing immunity, homeostasis and healthy ageing
  Dr I Evans, Dr M J P Simons
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The cells of our immune system perform key roles, such as shaping our bodies as they develop, fighting-off infection, and repairing tissues.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Sharpening the blunted neutrophil response to antimicrobial resistant fungal infection
  Dr P Elks, Prof A Condliffe, Dr V See, Dr S Johnston
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Life-threatening invasive fungal infection is a major health problem in the immunocompromised, and emerging drug resistance is a major threat to global health.
  Detecting the effect of climate change on animals: how mathematics can help optimise data-gathering efforts
  Dr J Potts, Dr S Patrick
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Are you a mathematics/statistics graduate, or finalist, with an interest in animal conservation and a desire to use your knowledge to help understand and mitigate against climate change?.
  The genomics of natural selection
  Dr K Zeng, Prof J Slate
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Adaptation is the process in which organisms become better suited to the. environment, in order to survive and thrive. Identifying genomic regions involved in this process is key to understanding the genetic basis of adaptation.
  The Genomic Basis of Life History in a Natural Population
  Prof T A Burke, Prof J Slate
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Traits that have more influence on an individual’s fitness are known to be under stronger selection and to have lower heritabilities.
