MRC DTP Precision Medicine funded PhD Scholarship

Open to UK/EU students only (EU students must be able to demonstrate 
that they have resided in the UK for three years prior to commencing 
studentship).
Fully funded with Research Council's stipend (£14,296 for 2016-17)

"Investigating Individual Specific Effects in Omics Datasets"

New omics technologies have yielded vast data sets on the degree of 
molecular variation in individuals with a wide range of inherited and 
acquired disorders. Analysis of these datasets under the classic 
case-control paradigm has revealed key differences between those with 
and without disease, but many of the claims made of these technologies 
remain unfulfilled.  Limitations in the analysis of datasets play their 
part. There is also considerable symptomatic and molecular variation 
within any group of patients that the case-control paradigm 
oversimplifies. Recently, we have found evidence of a previously 
unaccounted source of individual-specific variability in microarray data 
from myotonic dystrophy patients.  This project aims to develop 
analytical methods that account for individual specific effects in the 
analysis of omic datasets and investigate their significance and genetic 
basis across a range of studies and disorders. The student will develop 
these methods using generalized linear models and Bayesian analyses and 
apply them to in-house and publicly available data sets.

The project will be based in the Institute of Cardiovascular and Medical 
Sciences at the University of Glasgow with the primary supervisor, Dr 
John McClure, and will also be supervised by Prof Darren Monckton 
(Institute of Molecular, Cell and Systems Biology) and Dr Simon Rogers 
(School of Computing Science).  Glasgow is a vibrant and forward-looking 
city, situated close to some of Europe's most beautiful countryside.

Applicants should have obtained, or expect to obtain a 2:1 or 1st Class 
Honours (or equivalent) Bachelors or Masters degree, preferably in a 
quantitative discipline (e.g. statistics, genetics, bioinformatics, 
applied mathematics or computing). The PhD studentship will be available 
for 4 years for those with a high BSc (Hons) and for 3.5 years for 
students already with a relevant masters degree. Training with a suite 
of bespoke precision medicine courses will be informed by individual 
assessment of training needs.
