  Regulation of autophagy in human embryonic stem cells and its therapeutic application in induced pluripotent stem cell-based disease models
  Dr S Sarkar
Applications accepted all year round
Project background. Regulation of proteostasis is critical for maintaining tissue homeostasis. Autophagy, a major intracellular degradation pathway essential for cellular and energy homeostasis, functions in the clearance of aggregation-prone proteins and damaged organelles.
  Investigating the link between autophagy and DNA damage in Alzheimer’s disease neurons
  Prof T McKay
Application Deadline: 12 April 2019
Many neuronopathic diseases affecting the ageing population such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Huntington’s, ALS with Frontotemporal dementia and Lewy body dementia all result from the aberrant accumulation of substrate in intracellular vesicles within cortical neurons.
  Selective Autophagy of the Endoplasmic Reticulum
  Dr S Schuck
Applications accepted all year round
The laboratory of Sebastian Schuck at the Center for Molecular Biology of Heidelberg University is looking for a PhD student to investigate micro-ER-phagy, a novel type of autophagy that selectively targets the Endoplasmic Reticulum (ER).
  Finding the eat-me signals
  Dr I Ganley
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
University of Dundee, MRC Protein Phosphorylation and Ubiquitylation Unit, Dundee, United Kingdom. Dr. Ian Ganley. The Ganley lab is interested in unravelling the molecular mechanism of autophagy (which literally translates from the Greek meaning to eat oneself).
  Spatial control of autophagosome biogenesis
  Dr J D Lane
Applications accepted all year round
Autophagy is an essential catabolic process that promotes cell survival during episodes of nutrient/growth factor stress. Autophagy is involved in many human diseases, so complete understanding of this process is needed.
  Two pore channel segment 2: a new partner in crime for mTORC1 in pulmonary hypertension
  Prof A M Evans
Applications accepted all year round
Mechanistic target of Rapamycin (mTOR) and regulatory protein of TOR (Raptor) complexes (mTORC1) promote idiopathic- and hypoxic pulmonary hypertension (PH), facilitating pulmonary arterial smooth muscle cell (PASMC) growth, proliferation, and thus pulmonary vascular remodelling.
  The role of the p53 co-factor JMY in the regulation of gene expression in human cancer
  Dr A Coutts
Application Deadline: 4 April 2019
Tumour growth is achieved by overriding cell cycle control and bypassing cell death mechanisms. Mechanisms influencing cell survival such as apoptosis and autophagy are key determinants of cell fate during stress.
  Natural chemicals as anti-aging compounds
  Dr A Kolb
Application Deadline: 29 March 2019
Aging is a complex, multi-facetted process during which key parameters in an organism change gradually, resulting in an overall functional decline.
  Molecular mechanisms underlying Parkinson's disease
  Prof D Alessi
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
University of Dundee, MRC Protein Phosphorylation and Ubiquitylation Unit, Dundee, United Kingdom. Prof. Dario Alessi. There is great need for improved understanding of the mechanistic biology underlying Parkinson’s disease.
