PhD studentship "RNA methylation in Diabetes endothelial damage contributing to limb ischaemia”

Preliminary applications are invited for a 3-year PhD studentship (reserved to British and European citizens, only, following founder guidelines) in the Professor Costanza Emanueli group. The studentship is fully funded by Diabetes UK, for 3 years. The PhD project will involve exploring the role of RNA modifications in endothelial cells (ECs) in the context of type-2 diabetes mellitus (DM).

The PhD student will be supervised by Prof Emanueli and co-supervised by Dr Aranzazu Chamorro-Jorganes, who also has extensive experience in ncRNAs and vascular biology. Through a combination of seminars and independent research, students develop the necessary skill-sets to become future research leaders in the cardiovascular sciences. Training is structured to encourage students to take novel, interdisciplinary approaches to address key cardiovascular questions.

The winning candidate will hold undergraduate biomedical degree at first or at least upper-second level and preferably from a top-class UK or European University & a Master degree. Ideally, the candidate will have a background in molecular and cellular biology.

For preliminary information, please email to and attach a short CV with your education track and research experience (if any).

The expected starting date is between May and July 2018.
