  Bactofilins and the bacterial cytoskeleton
  Dr E Hoiczyk
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Newly developed light and electron microscopy methods are revolutionising our understanding of bacterial cells. Once thought to be simple, bacteria have now been recognised at highly organised cells using many elements previously only known from eukaryotes.
  Unravelling real-time cytoskeleton dynamics using single molecule imaging tools
  Dr M Molodtsov, Dr S Cox
Application Deadline: 12 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

A joint Crick-King’s College London funded PhD position for the 2020 programme between the labs of Maxim Molodtsov and Susan Cox.
  The regulation of signalling pathways in cancer initiation by Rho GTPases and the Cytoskeleton
  Dr A Elbediwy, Dr M Stolinski, Mr P Waller, Dr H Ashrafi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

What is the reason why cells can suddenly switch to uncontrolled cellular growth? What causes the normal formation of cellular contacts and organs to stop growing when reaching their normal size to ignore normal signals and multiply uncontrollably?.
  Characterising the cyanobacterial cytoskeleton (LEASMITHU20DTP)
  Dr D Lea-Smith, Dr G Kelemen
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cyanobacteria (photosynthetic bacteria) are amongst the most abundant organisms on the planet, accounting for approximately a quarter of carbon fixation.
  Cytoskeleton self-organisation and microtubule-based transport
  Prof A Straube
Application Deadline: 15 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Disciplines. Physical Sciences, Biological and Medical Sciences,. Subjects. Biophysics, Biochemistry, Cell Biology / Development.
  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.
  Investigation of the generation of force by fibroblasts under the influence of therapeutic ultrasound
  Dr M Bass
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Chronic ulcers are non-healing wounds that affect 200,000 UK patients annually and frequently result in amputation.
  Defining novel regulators of cancer cell invasion
  Prof M Parsons, Prof J Marshall
Application Deadline: 29 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The cytoskeleton of cells is known to be essential to the behaviour of cancer cells and their ability to invade throughout the body.
  Molecular mechanisms controlling cardiac fibroblast proliferation during cardiac fibrosis
  Dr M Bond
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Novel anti-inflammatory mechanisms of cyclic-AMP in vascular smooth muscle cells
  Dr M Bond
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A self-funded PhD studentship is available at the University of Bristol to study novel anti-inflammatory mechanisms of cyclic-AMP in vascular disease.
