  Unravelling the mechanism of glutamyl-tRNA reductase, a target for broad-spectrum antibiotic development
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr RG Da Silva
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance is on the rise. This global threat is predicted to claim more lives than cancer by 2050 if not properly addressed.
  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.
  Molecular and cellular mechanisms of regeneration in the invertebrate chordate amphioxus
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr I Somorjai
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cephalochordates ("amphioxus" or "lancelet") are an ideal model for studying developmental and regenerative processes (Bertrand and Escriva 2011; Somorjai 2017).
  Impact of environmental stressors on microbiota and health in a marine chordate
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr I Somorjai
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The gut microbiota - the complex community of bacteria, viruses and archaea with which we live - has an important impact on health, disease progression, lifespan and behaviour (Glendinning and Free 2014).
  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.
  The genetics of sperm competition in Drosophila pseudoobscura
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Prof MG Ritchie
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sperm competition is a major source of selection on animal mating systems, and studies of Drosophila have shown that genes expressed in male reproductive tissues are amongst the most rapidly evolving between species.
  Impacts of fishing-induced changes in forage fish school structure on African penguin foraging
  Research Group: Scottish Oceans Institute
  Prof A Brierley
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD will examine African penguin – fish school interactions using a combination of acoustic survey and biologging off Robben and Dassen Islands, South Africa.
  Studying tissue wide coordination of pulsed contractility during morphogenesis in Drosophila
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr M Bischoff
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

During morphogenesis, cells undergo complex behaviours, including cell movement and apical constriction to shape tissues and organs.
