University of Manchester
The programme covers the area of cell biology, underpinned by facilities in confocal, electron and light microscopy; research is focussed on understanding the molecular basis of cell division, organelle biogenesis and protein targeting, differentiation, adhesion and secretion.
A 1st or 2.1 Honours degree, or the overseas equivalent, in a relevant subject; 2.2 Honours degree supplemented by appropriate relevant experience may be acceptable; IELTS 6.5, TOEFL 577 (paper based), TOEFL 233 (computer based) or TOEFL 90 (internet based).
Research areas include: Cytoskeleton and control of the cell cycle; molecular mechanisms of chromosome segregation; mechanisms of DNA repair; animal and plant apoptosis; palate and epidermal development; protein targeting; translocation and secretion; adhesion and the extracellular matrix; vascular development in plants; ultrastructure of eukaryotic microbes and fungi; host immune responses.
Assessment is by a research project.
A large number of funded PhD places are offered annually via the UK Research Councils; other studentships may be available through charities, internal funds and some industry- sponsored awards.
