  Natural toxins and their synthetic analogues as tools to study ion channels and as potential drugs and pesticides
  Dr I R Mellor
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project will use a combination of electrophysiological techniques such as voltage-clamp and patch-clamp with molecular biology and protein expression to understand how natural toxins and their synthetic analogues act on ion channels in the nervous system.
  Molecular Mechanisms of Receptor and Ion Channel Regulation in Pain and Inflammation
  Dr G Cottrell, Dr D Widera, Dr S Amadesi, Dr A McNeish
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Receptors and ion channels are responsible for the transmission of signals across cellular membranes that regulate a plethora of biological and cellular functions.
  The mechanism of gating and transport of pentameric Magnesium ion channels
  Dr S M Prince, Prof R Ford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Magnesium ions are a co-factor in many important biological processes particularly because of the requirement for Mg2+ in the hydrolysis of Adenosine tri-phosphate, the ubiquitous cellular energy source.
  Molecular Modelling of P2X receptor agonism and antagonism
  Dr R Schmid
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

P2X receptors (P2XRs) form a family of ligand-gated ion channels activated upon binding of extracellular ATP (for review see [1]).
  Ion channel regulation in models of neurodegeneration
  Dr M Dallas, Prof G J Stephens, Dr A Bithell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ion channels are important regulators of cellular physiology. There is now growing awareness that these proteins are invovled in pathological states, with relation to neurodegeneration voltage-gated potassium and voltage-gated calicum channels have been implicated.
  Ion channel signalling in cancer cells
  Dr W Brackenbury
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our cells constantly sense and transport ions present in their environment. From embryonic development to epilepsy to heart disease to cancer, our cells’ ability to respond to changes in the ionic microenvironment is essential for healthy ageing.
  Ion channel clustering in neuronal membranes
  Dr S M Prince, Prof R Ford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of the study is to investigate the organization of ion channels in the membranes of excitable cells by scaffold proteins, and to discover how the properties of the channels are modified by these interactions.
  Molecular Transport through Angstrom scale confinement
  Dr R Boya
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Housed within the world-leading condensed matter physics group and National Graphene Institute, our group focuses on 2D materials and angstrom scale capillaries.
  Neurotransmitter gated channels - relating structure to function
  Prof S C R Lummis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The 5-HT3 receptor is a member of the family of neurotransmitter gated ion channels that includes nicotinic acetylcholine, GABA and glycine receptors.
  Structural, kinetic and functional characterisation of ion channel function in the gal-3-fibrosome
  Prof B Gooptu, Prof G Vuister
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

4 Year PhD Studentship available to start September 2020. Fibrosis is a common ageing-associated process that affects all organs.
  Direct characterisation of TRPC channel dynamics triggered by drug-like modulators using high-speed atomic force microscopy
  Research Group: Molecular and Nanoscale Phsyics
  Dr G Heath
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The rapid expansion in the structural understanding of membrane proteins through recent progress in electron microscopy and X-ray crystallography is leading to an ever greater need for techniques which provide high temporal resolution dynamics.
  P2X receptors in the peripheral nervous system: molecular pharmacology (FOUNTAINSU20SF)
  Dr S Fountain
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

P2X receptors are ligand-gated ion channels activated by extracellular adenosine 5’-triphosphate (ATP). In the peripheral nervous system (PNS), ATP is a neurotransmitter acting in both autonomic and sensory nerve control of body tissue function and homeostasis.
  Monolayer Metal-Organics
  Dr R Boya
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Housed within the world-leading condensed matter physics group and National Graphene Institute, our group focuses on 2D materials and angstrom scale capillaries.
  Open Position in Computational Molecular Biophysics
