  Dynamics of protein folding on the ribosome
  Dr D Balchin
Application Deadline: 12 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 4-year PhD studentship is offered in Dr David Balchin’s Group based at the Francis Crick Institute (the Crick). Proteins are synthesised on the ribosome as linear polypeptides that in most cases must fold into defined 3-D structures to be biologically active.
  Oxidative protein folding of industrially and pharmaceutically important recombinant proteins
  Dr H Lu, Dr A Day
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Oxidative protein folding is an important process for the function of many proteins, which includes both folding and formation of native disulphide bonds.
  Mitochondrial protein folding and diseases
  Prof L-Y Lian, Dr D Criddle
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many diseases, including cancer and neurological disease, stem from mitochondrial dysfunctions often triggered by sudden elevation of agents such as calcium and reactive oxygen species.
  Simulation of the HP-model of protein folding
  Research Group: Dynamical Systems and Statistical Physics
  Dr T Prellberg
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The School of Mathematical Sciences of Queen Mary University of London invite applications for a PhD project commencing either in September 2019 for students seeking funding, or at any point in the academic year for self-funded students.
  Regulation of mitotic and meiotic chromosome function by different cohesin complexes
  Research Group: Meiosis
  Dr E Martinez-Perez
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cohesin, the complex that provides sister chromatid cohesion (SCC) to ensure correct chromosome segregation during cell division, belongs to a family of SMC (structural maintenance of chromosomes) proteins conserved from bacteria to humans (1).
  3D printing of Smart Shape Memory Materials for Advanced Sensors and Actuators
  Dr M Bodaghi
Application Deadline: 27 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Academic Associate in Engineering (Smart Materials). Job reference. 06686. Location. Clifton Campus. Closing date. 27/10/2019. Salary.
  A bioinformatics approach to understanding protein solubility tags
  Dr J Warwicker, Dr R Curtis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The crowded environment of a cell cytoplasm reveals that proteins and other biological molecules co-exist at high macromolecular concentrations.
  A mechanistic understanding of circadian clock-dependent regulation of the secretory pathway
  Prof K E Kadler, Dr Q-J Meng, Dr J Swift
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The protein secretory pathway comprises a series of membranous compartments and transport vesicles that cells use to synthesise, post-translationally modify, and move proteins for delivery to the plasma membrane or for secretion to the extracellular matrix.
  Dynamic cell fate decisions: linking mechanical signals and protein expression dynamics in the developing eye to understand human developmental disorders
  Dr Cerys Manning, Prof N Papalopulu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inherited developmental disorders account for much of childhood visual impairment. Development of the eye requires cell fate decisions that balance stem cell proliferation and differentiation.
  Mapping the circadian clock-dependent regulation of the secretory pathway
  Prof K E Kadler, Dr Q-J Meng
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The protein secretory pathway in cells comprises a series of membranous compartments and transport vesicles that the cell uses to synthesise, post-translationally modify, and move proteins for delivery to the plasma membrane or for secretion to the extracellular matrix.
