  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.
  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).
  Structure and function of tetraspanin complexes involved in autophagy.
  Dr F Berditchevski
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
This project offers the opportunity to elucidate the structure and molecular interactions of a novel tetraspanin complex involved in autophagy.
  Are metabolites generated by the microbiota key to a young immune system?
  Prof K Simon
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
NDORMS 2019/12. By 2050, the world’s population aged >60 years is expected to be 2 billion, up from 900 million in 2015, which is a major concern for the individual and for society generally.
  Are metabolites generated by the microbiota key to a young immune system?
  Prof K Simon, Dr G Alsaleh
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
By 2050, the world’s population aged >60 years is expected to be 2 billion, up from 900 million in 2015, a major concern for the individual and for society.One of the contributing factors is ageing of the immune system.
  Targeting TFEB to correct autophagy/lysosomal deficits in Parkinson’s disease
  Prof R Wade-Martins
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Commercial partner. Biogen, Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA. Parkinson’s disease is the second most common neurodegenerative disorder but disease-modifying therapies are still lacking.
  Finding the eat-me signals
  Dr I Ganley
Application Deadline: 31 December 2018
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.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Using bioinformatics to identify pathways regulating pancreatic beta-cell function and survival
  Dr C Arden, Dr A Teo,, Prof P Lovat
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Applications are invited for a PhD studentship under the supervision of Dr Catherine Arden (Newcastle University), Dr Adrian Teo (A*STAR Singapore) and Professor Penny Lovat (Newcastle University).
