  The regulation of Staphylococcus aureus cell division
  Prof S J Foster
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Staphylococcus aureus is a major human pathogen causing significant death and disease around the world. The problem is exacerbated by the spread of antibiotic resistant strains.
  Protein complexes required for bacterial cell wall biosynthesis and division
  Prof D Roper, Dr A Crow, Dr M Jenner, Prof T R Dafforn
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) is now widely understood to be a global healthcare emergency, exacerbated by many socio-economic factors.
  Asymmetric cell division as mechanism for generating cell diversity
  Dr A Pires da Silva, Dr I Nezis
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

During embryonic development, a single fertilised egg ultimately generates every cell of an organism. To generate diverse types of cells, some cell divisions occur asymmetrically, resulting in daughter cells inheriting different proteins and organelles.
  Basal stem cells in the lung and their recognition of dying cells
  Prof T Hussell, Dr N Fujino
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Stem cell division and differentiation is critical for barrier repair following inflammation, but the initial trigger for this process is unknown.
  Exploring cell wall biosynthethic complexes for next generation antimicrobial discovery
  Prof D Roper
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The biosynthesis of the bacterial cell wall represents an area of bacterial metabolism, which is a validated target for numerous antimicrobials1.
  Physics of cutting and reshaping of cell membranes
  Dr A Saric
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are looking for highly motivated students to join our interdisciplinary team for an exciting project at the interface of physics, biology, and chemistry.
  Bacterial ABC transporters involved in antibiotic resistance and sensing
  Dr A Crow, Prof D Roper, Dr S Gebhard
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Type VII ABC transporters are a superfamily of ATP-powered membrane proteins that function in bacterial antibiotic resistance, toxin secretion, cell division and membrane biogenesis [1,2,3].
  Defining the sequence requirements for neo-centromere function in the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe
  Dr W R A Brown, Dr W Wickstead
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Centromeres are the regions of the chromosome necessary for accurate segregation at cell division. They bind a complex set of proteins called the kinetochore which in turn tethers the chromosome to the microtubules of the spindle at cell division.
  Microtubule motors in cell migration and integrin trafficking
  Prof V Allan, Prof P Woodman, Dr P Caswell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cell migration is vital for the development and health of multicellular organisms. However, enhanced cell migration is also a hallmark of cancer cells, and contributes greatly to metastasis.
  Curly, a novel IQGAP protein domain that bends actin filaments: characterisation and novel applications
  Dr D Köster, Prof M Balasubramanian
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Actin filaments are central to a large number of biological processes in all domains of life. Dirven by the interplay with molecular motors, actin binding and actin modulating proteins, the actin cytoskeleton exhibits a variety of geometries.
  Bioengineering of patient-derived explants (PDEs) and 3D organoid culture systems for tissue regeneration, cancer and drug discovery
  Dr A Shams Nateri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The intestine provides an attractive route to model biologically important intestinal processes and a unique opportunity for the direct identification and analysis of factors that contribute to development and maintenance of both normal as well as the development of neoplasia.
  Modelling stem cell fate and alterations due to mutations
  Dr E Morrissey
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The group uses a combination of deep learning, stochastic models and Bayesian modelling to study questions relating to stem cell fate dynamics and how mutations in stem cells alter their normal behaviour, become fixed and accumulate in the tissue eventually leading to cancer.
