  Dr B Lichtenstein, Prof J McGeehan, Dr S Robson
Application Deadline: 7 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a fully-funded four year PhD studentship to commence in October 2020. The PhD will be based at the University’s Centre for Enzyme Innovation (CEI), and will be supervised by Dr Bruce Lichtenstein, Prof.
  Evolution of antimicrobial resistance
  Prof S Lovell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The increasing prevalence of anti-microbial resistance (AMR) is one of the key health challenges of the 21st centuryThe emergence of AMR is inherently an evolutionary problem.
  (BBSRC DTP) Understanding and predicting evolutionary change in HIV
  Prof S Lovell, Dr C Walton, Prof S Griffiths-Jones
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our overall aim is to understand viral evolution, and the limitations on evolution that arise from the viral genome, proteome and structure-function relationships.
  Evolutionary insights for engineering improved globin oxygen carriers
  Dr M Berenbrink, Dr J Madine
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Around 2 million red blood cell units at a cost of 120.00 GBP per unit are transfused annually in England alone (http://www.nhsbt.nhs.uk/what-we-do/blood-transfusion/).
  FoodBioSystems DTP - A receptor-ligand module that triggers cell death in plants: a killer in disguise
  Dr M Bosch, Dr L J McGuffin, Prof G J Stephens
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. Most of our food is a product of plant reproduction with fertility and seed set critical for crop yield and thus food security.
  Structure, function and evolution of plant telomere components
  Prof J Fajkus, Prof J Palecek
Application Deadline: 20 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Telomeres are terminal, but nevertheless integral parts of chromosomes, and as such they are also formed and function as supramolecular nucleoprotein (chromatin) structures.
  Evolution of vertebrate blood vessels
  Dr T Takahashi, Dr S Herbert
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The blood vessels are the core elements of the circulatory system of animals, and their malfunction is related to most human diseases including cancer and heart attacks.
  Structural studies of the TPLATE complex
  Dr K Tripsianes
Application Deadline: 20 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The TPLATE complex (TPC) is essential for endocytosis in plants, yet it is evolutionary lost from yeasts and animals, pointing to the fact that endocytosis is mechanistically regulated differently.
  IMPRS "From Molecules To Organisms”

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our PhD program in the life sciences places special emphasis on interdisciplinary interactions. We want to train the next generation of scientists to study complex biological processes that cannot be adequately understood within the limits of a single discipline.
  10+ fully funded PhD student positions in the Plant Sciences

Funding Type

PhD Type

The International Max Planck Research School (IMPRS) on Understanding Complex Plant Traits using Computational and Evolutionary Approaches is a local collaboration between the Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research (MPIPZ) and the Universities in Cologne and Düsseldorf (Germany).
