  Actin-dependent mechanisms of chromosome segregation in mammalian eggs
  Dr B Mogessie
Applications accepted all year round
Every human life starts when an egg is fertilised by a sperm. Fertilisable eggs are produced from oocytes by a specialised form of cell division called meiosis (1).
  How Chlamydia uses disorder to invade the host cell (BLUMENSCHEINTU19SF)
  Dr T Blumenschein
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
Intrinsically disordered proteins (IDPs) lack a single well-defined conformation and are instead flexible, exploring multiple possible conformations.
  Investigate a novel, unexplored link between WNT signalling and regulators of cell migration in cancer progression using CRISPR-Cas9 and advanced live cell imaging.
  Dr M Krause
Applications accepted all year round
Cancer is a devastating disease. more than one in three people in the UK will develop cancer in their lifetime. WNT signalling is a key pathway controlling morphogenesis in embryos and it has been shown that perturbations of this pathway promote cancer progression.
  Molecular mechanisms controlling cardiac fibroblast proliferation during cardiac fibrosis
  Dr M Bond
Applications accepted all year round
Applicants are invited for a new self-funded PhD studentship to study the molecular mechanisms of cardiac fibrosis. Myocardial fibrosis is a significant global health problem associated with nearly all forms of heart disease.
  (BBSRC DTP)Understanding structure and function of the mechanosensors talin and vinculin
  Dr C Ballestrem, Prof C Baldock, Dr A Roseman
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Any aberration in the cells’ ability to sense their environment leads to severe health deficiencies including cancer, deficiencies in wound-healing and inflammation.
  The molecular mechanisms of organelle transport by motor protein myosin-V
  Dr A Hume
Applications accepted all year round
Organelle transport is essential for cellular function and survival, and these processes are disrupted in many common diseases including cancer, diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease.
  Unveiling the nanomechanical properties of the LINC complex proteins with single molecule resolution
  Prof S Garcia Manyes
Application Deadline: 15 March 2019
Mechanical forces are involved in many physiological processes. While most of the current work in mechanotransduction has focused on the function of focal adhesion proteins and the actin cytoskeleton, the mechanical role of intracellular and nuclear proteins remains rather elusive.
  Novel anti-inflammatory mechanisms of cyclic-AMP in vascular smooth muscle cells
  Dr M Bond
Applications accepted all year round
A self-funded PhD studentship is available at the University of Bristol to study novel anti-inflammatory mechanisms of cyclic-AMP in vascular disease.
  Small G proteins and their effectors as therapeutic targets in cancer
  Dr D Owen
Applications accepted all year round
For the majority of cancers the acquisition of invasive and metastatic characteristics leads to incurable disease in the host.
