  (BBSRC DTP) Inhibition of SR protein kinase 1 with designer peptides
  Dr A Golovanov, Dr A Almond
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This PhD project addresses BBSRC’s ENWW in that the student will be trained in. Biophysical techniques - ITC, SPR, CD; Structural biology techniques - solution state NMR and X-ray crystallography; Computational techniques - molecular dynamics simulations and computer modelling and analysis.
  EPSRC DTP Studentship - Machine learning and drug discovery
  Prof G Csanyi
Application Deadline: 15 January 2019
An EPSRC funded PhD studentship is available in the Engineering Laboratory at the University of Cambridge.
  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.
  In vitro assessment of drug sequestration into lysosomes and in silico prediction of implications for drug disposition and therapeutic efficacy
  Dr A Galetin, Dr D Hallifax
Applications accepted all year round
Intracellular concentration of a drug is an important determinant of its efficacy, toxicity, and potential drug-drug interactions [1].
  Structure guided inhibitors design of human Mitochondrial Thymidine Kinase (TK2)
  Dr Y Jin
Application Deadline: 14 December 2018
Background. Mitochondrial Thymidine Kinase 2 (TK2) catalyses transfer of a γ-phosphate group from ATP to the 5′-hydroxyl group of thymidine, deoxycytidine, or deoxyuridine to form their 5’-mono-phosphates.
  A nanotechnology solution to one of drug discovery’s last challenges.
  Prof T R Dafforn, Dr F Fernandez-Trillo
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Membrane proteins represent 30-40% of the cellular proteome and carry out a wide range of fundamental biological process. These include sensing the outside world, helping maintain cellular structure and homeostasis.
  Using AI to Drive Drug Discovery for Membrane Protein Targets
  Dr PC Biggin
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Lead supervisor. Prof Phil Biggin, Department of Biochemistry, Oxford. Commercial partner. Vertex Pharmaceuticals, Milton site, Oxfordshire.
  PhD Studentship – Free energy calculations in drug discovery
  Prof J W Essex, Prof J G Frey
Applications accepted all year round
Protein-ligand binding free energy is a crucial property used in the discovery and optimisation of novel drugs.
  Chimeric Human-NavMs Sodium Channel Constructs for Structure/Function Studies of Selective Toxin Binding
  Prof B A Wallace
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Voltage-gated sodium channels are responsible for a wide range of neurological and cardiovascular channelopathies, and hence are important current and future targets for the development of novel and highly specific pharmaceutical drugs.
  Probing Conformational Change in Protein Kinases Using Single Molecule Fluorescence Spectroscopy and Unnatural Amino Acids
  Dr C Dodson
Application Deadline: 16 December 2018
Supervisory team. Lead supervisor -. Dr Charlotte Dodson, Department of Pharmacy & Pharmacology, University of Bath. Co-supervisors -.
