A PhD position is available to investigate whether rates of evolution, hybridisation and speciation have been accelerating during the Anthropocene.
  Selective control of tRNA gene transcription by steroid receptors and BRCA1.
  Prof R J White, Dr W Brackenbury
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BRCA1 is an important tumour suppressor protein with roles in DNA repair. and transcription. BRCA1 binds many tRNA genes, but its role there is.
  Unraveling the survival mechanisms of bacteria
  Dr M van der Woude, Dr G H Thomas

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bacteria are exposed to a constantly changing environment. Salmonellae are. zoonotic and/or transmitted by an oral-fecal route, and thus need to survive.
  Transcriptional battles in plant-pathogen interactions: understanding and re-wiring gene regulatory networks to enhance disease resistance
  Prof K Denby, Prof I A Graham
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The severity of plant disease is determined by a battle between pathogen virulence. and host plant immunity – understanding this relationship is key to developing.

  Dr S Chawla, Dr C J H Elliott
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ageing and neurodegenerative disorders, such as Parkinson’s, are characterized by a progressive loss of neurons in particular brain regions leading to characteristic behavioural changes including cognitive decline and sleep disruption.
