  PhD student in biological physics / theoretical biology: Understanding the mechanisms of spatial organisation of proteins within bacterial cells
  Dr S Murray
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The research group of Dr Seán Murray in the Department of Systems and Synthetic Microbiology at the Max Planck Institute for Terrestrial Microbiology, Marburg, Germany invites applications for a PhD student in biological physics to start in early 2020.
  Unveiling the nanomechanical properties of the LINC complex proteins with single molecule resolution
  Prof S Garcia Manyes
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  The physics of glass - fundamental mechanisms and novel applications
  Dr J Mattsson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The formation and behavior of glassy disordered non-equilibrium solids is one of the deepest unsolved fundamental questions in physics.
  Boundary Effects in Active Matter Systems
  Dr F Ginelli
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

he study of collective properties of active matter is a fast-emerging interdisciplinary research field.
  Modelling and understanding of biological systems, using physics as a tool
  Dr Y Hayashi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Living systems are complex, and are based on the basic building blocks of genes, proteins, chemical reactions, and physical forces.
  Sub-nanometer resolution imaging of individual biological molecules by electron cryomicroscopy
  Dr C Russo
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many fundamental problems in biology relate to how proteins interact with DNA and RNA. The difficulty in addressing these questions arises from the limitations of current microscopes and the complex and fragile nature of biomolecules.
  Computational Modelling of Biological Visual Processing Utilising MEA Electrode Arrays
  Prof TM McGinnity
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over 60 million people worldwide are blind and this number is rising as the global population ages. There are a number of major eye diseases, many of them associated with the retina and in addition many chronic diseases have manifestations in the eye.
  Computer Simulations of Biological Macromolecules
  Dr SA Harris, Dr D Read
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Computational models are invaluable for visualisation in molecular biology, as they employ our best quantitative physical understanding of biomolecules and their interactions to predict their dynamics, which is often missing from biophysical experiments.
  How to make molecular machines: modelling ribosome biogenesis
  Prof C Romano, Prof I Stansfield
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ribosomes are arguably the most important biological molecular machines. Cells can be seen as factories of proteins, with ribosomes being the machines producing them.
  PhD Studentship in the School of Mathematics, Statistics and Physics - Integrating palaeontological data in phylogenetic analysis – developing a principled statistical model for morphological evolution
  Dr TMW Nye
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020
