  Connective Tissue Fibrosis: Understanding basic biological mechanisms and the development of targeted therapies
  Prof G Bou-Gharios
Applications accepted all year round
The PhD proposal is aimed at understanding some of the fundamental mechanism(s) that control extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins and to develop new technologies and therapeutic based on changes in fibroblast gene expression profiling and surface antibodies during the development of connective tissue fibrosis.
  Developing and applying computational methods to understand the genetics of ageing
  Dr JP de Magalhaes
Applications accepted all year round
Ageing is the chief biomedical challenge of the 21st century, yet it remains a major puzzle of biology. Although it is clear that the process of ageing has a strong genetic component, much work remains to elucidate how the genome regulates ageing.
  Development of treatment for Osteoarthritis by blocking metalloproteinases
  Prof G Bou-Gharios
Applications accepted all year round
We aim to understand how MMP13 is transcriptionally regulated and whether a newly identified enhancer is involved in normal and osteoarthritic cartilage.
  Inner ear development and evolution - investigating prenatal development of the inner ear region at the micro and macro-anatomical level
  Dr N Jeffery
Applications accepted all year round
Sound and head movements are detected by the inner ear, providing signals that are integral to how species move, interact and survive (e.g.
  Conservation genetics and infectious disease in Brandt’s bats
  Prof S Paterson, Dr K Zeng, Dr T Lilley
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
There are hundreds of species of bats, each adapted to its environment. This project will use latest methods in genome sequencing to understand bat biodiversity, evolution and resistance to infectious disease.
  Disease control and conservation: applying grazing pressure to solve ’The World’s Worst Wildlife Infectious Disease’
  Dr D J S Montagnes, Prof A Fenton
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
BACKGROUND & TIMELINESS. Infectious diseases threaten ecosystem function, biodiversity, and humans through zoonotic infections. Water-borne diseases, in particular, are predicted to increase through anthropogenic factors, including climate-change.
  Form, function and macroevolution in dinosaurs
  Dr KT Bates
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Dinosaurs dominated terrestrial ecosystems throughout the Mesozoic, and radiated into a diverse array of body shapes and sizes. They are therefore a model system for understanding the interactions between anatomy, function and ecology through time.
  How common are heritable microbes, and why?
  Dr SJ Cornell, Prof G Hurst
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Heritable endosymbionts are extremely common, being observed in around 30% of all arthropod species. Their pervasiveness is very puzzling from an evolutionary perspective, because any host species represents a dead end to a symbiont that is only transmitted vertically (i.e.
  How is the Gut Microbiome Community Assembled in Wild Rodents?
  Prof M Viney, Prof JL Hurst
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
This project will investigate how the gut bacterial community – the microbiome – is assembled in wild animals. The bacterial gut microbiome has a profound impact on the biology of its host.
  Reducing the environmental impact of controlling invasive rodent pests
  Prof JL Hurst, Prof P Stockley
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Background. Rodents play important roles in many ecosystems, influencing habitat structure and plant diversity, and providing an important food source for many predators.
