  Computer-aided molecular design: improved ligand docking using electronic structure and molecular dynamics simulations
  Dr R A Bryce, Dr N Burton
Applications accepted all year round
In structure-based drug design, computational modelling techniques are frequently used to predict the orientation and affinity with which a ligand binds to its protein receptor.
  The molecular structure and function of the synaptonemal complex in chromosome synapsis and recombination during meiosis
  Dr O Davies
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Meiosis, the process of reductive cell division, is essential for fertility and genetic diversity in all sexually reproducing organisms.
  Effect of Big data and Linked Open Data in innovation of IPR management processes (REF: SF18/BAM/DAMIJ)
  Dr N Damij
Applications accepted all year round
Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) data can shape (present and future) investment decisions in R&D, protect companies freedom to operate, assess the value…
  Efficient calculation of binding free-energies and druggability in challenging drug targets
  Prof F Gervasio
Application Deadline: 3 June 2019
This four year PhD research project, due to start in October 2019, is a collaboration between University College London and UCB pharma, a global biopharmaceutical company (www.ucb.com).
  Structural investigation of interactions within the tripartite drug-efflux pumps in Gram-negative bacteria.
  Dr VN Bavro, Dr K Futterer
Applications accepted all year round
Tripartite multidrug efflux-pumps are key contributors to the rising global problem of multidrug resistance in Gram-negative bacteria.
  Discovery of ubiquitin-conjugation enzyme inhibitors from marine natural products.
  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
  Prof M Auer, Dr N Carragher
Application Deadline: 13 December 2018
Ubiquitination is a key biochemical event which regulates most cell processes. Proteins are modified with ubiquitin, or ubiquitinated, through a series of reactions involving the E1, E2 and E3 enzymes.
  Exploring the boundaries of the human acetylome
  Dr S Cowley, Prof D Panne
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Lysine acetylation (Lys-Ac) is an abundant post-translational modification (PTM) occurring on thousands of proteins. However, our understanding of ‘acetylome’ regulation and its functional consequences remains well behind other common PTMs such as phosphorylation and ubiquitination.
  Exploiting druggability host spots in protein phosphatase targets
  Dr L Tabernero, Prof D Procter, Dr S Butterworth
Applications accepted all year round
In the past years the use of virtual screening or computer-based screening of compound libraries against selected targets has expanded exponentially the boundaries of drug discovery.
  (BBSRC DTP) A computational model for improving catalytic rate in enzymes.
  Dr J Warwicker, Dr S De Visser, Dr S Hay
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project will use computational approaches to couple a widely accepted feature of importance in enzyme activity to visualisation and prediction.
  Identification, screening and scale up of enzymes in the Biocatalyst Discovery Metagenomics platform
  Prof N Scrutton, Prof N Turner
Applications accepted all year round
Background – Enzyme engineering strategies, supported by computational and molecular modelling to maximise speed and efficiency, has been shown to be a powerful tool for (semi-) rational design of enzymes.1,2 We will evaluate protein mobility/dynamics, docking/binding of substrates and calculation of free energy barriers for catalysis.
