  How human teeth form and how that process fails in the inherited condition amelogenesis imperfecta
  Prof C Inglehearn
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Amelogenesis is the process of enamel formation and is essential for the development of functional teeth. Amelogenesis imperfecta (AI) is a failure of that process.
  How to prevent promiscuous gene regulation
  Prof M C Gambetta
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Regulatory elements that turn genes ON or OFF are promiscuous and can act over large genomic distances. How are genes protected from unwanted regulation?.
  Host factors determining latency and reactivation of MDV-1 virus
  Dr Y Yao, Dr F Grey
Application Deadline: 17 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Herpesviruses are large dsDNA viruses that cause widespread, lifelong latent infections in different hosts, through multiple virus-host interactions to create a delicate balance between the virus and the host.
  The genetic basis of cognitive impairment in intellectual disability and schizophrenia
  Prof C Inglehearn, Dr M Ali
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Schizophrenia is a chronic mental health condition affecting 1% of human populations, with symptoms that include visual and auditory hallucinations, delusions and disordered thought, leading to disruption of the sense of self.
  Understanding how the NuRD complex regulates 3D genome organization using a combination of single-molecule super-resolution imaging and single cell biology
  Prof E D Laue
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The spatial organisation of the genome is known to play an important role in regulating RNA transcription to effect cell-type-specific gene expression programs, and to control the differentiation of embryonic stem (ES) cells.
  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.
  DNA Damage and Repair: Studying DNA damage and repair to understand the causes of cancer and improve its treatment
  Prof P McHugh, Prof J Rehwinkel, Prof A Harris
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our DNA is constantly under threat from damaging agents. If unrepaired this DNA damage can lead to errors during genome duplication, including the mutations that can lead to cancer and other human diseases.
  Stimulating the sirtuin family in the treatment of cancer.
  Dr P Ragazzon
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Every year, thousands of people face cancer diagnosis. Survival rates are high, but many face devastating disabilities and long-term side effects resulting from currently treatments.
  Understanding Gram-negative envelope biogenesis using genome-wide approaches.
  Dr M Banzhaf
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many Gram-negative bacteria are common foodborne pathogens. Most often strains belong to the genera of Escherichia, Salmonella and Campylobacter.
  Structure and Function Studies on Proteins from Predatory Bacteria
  Dr A Lovering
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bdellovibrio bacteriovorus is a small predatory bacterium able to invade and kill many different Gram-negative bacterial prey (including human, animal and crop pathogens; e.g.
