  Adapting methods from statistical ecology and applying them to molecular data in cancer
  Prof A Lynch, Dr H Worthington
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There are a number of questions that arise from proteomic and RNA studies in cancer that have clear parallels in the world of ecology.
  Investigating modes of action of genetic risk variants through integrated analysis of multiple high-dimensional “omics” data.
  Research Group: Division of Statistics
  Prof A Lynch, Dr M Papathomas
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Genome-wide association studies have identified thousands of genomic loci that are associated with higher risk of a trait (often a disease such as breast cancer).
  How does a mammalian cell physically organise the complex processes of gene expression and regulation?
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr J Sleeman
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Accurate gene expression and regulation in mammalian cells is a hugely complex process, essential for cellular and organismal homeostasis.
  Impaired stress response as a pathological mechanism in Myotonic Dystrophy Type 1 and related degenerative conditions
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr J Sleeman
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Myotonic Dystrophy Type1 (DM1) is an incurable inherited multi-system disease that results in numerous symptoms including early cataract development, which can be the first sign of the disease.
  Integrating Interdisciplinary Big Data: A Network-Based Approach
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Dr V A Smith
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Big data across diverse fields is both a growing resource and a growing challenge.
  Studying evolutionary processes with polymorphism-aware phylogenetic models
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr C Kosiol
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The recent sequencing of genomes of closely related species and of many individuals from the same species enables the study of speciation and the inference of the history of populations.
  Adaptation in Exploratory Processes
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Prof K N Laland, Prof G Ruxton
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Organisms often respond to new challenges through ‘exploratory mechanisms’ (Gerhart & Kirschner, 1997), which are complex developmental systems that operate by generating variation (i.e.
  Combining molecular genetics and biochemistry to explore the biology of chromosomal DNA replication in the Archaea
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr S MacNeill
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Archaea constitute the third domain of life on Earth, comprise an estimated 20% of the planet’s biomass and make a major impact on both biosphere and atmosphere.
  Understanding the biological function of a highly unusual bacteriophage DNA ligase
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr S MacNeill
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

In all forms of life, DNA ligase enzymes are essential for joining strands of DNA when new DNA is being made or when damaged DNA is being repaired.
