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.
  Uncovering the role of lipid renovation in bacteria-host interactions
  Dr Y Chen, Prof D J Scanlan
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance is one of the most serious threats to humans in the 21stcentury. Hence, understanding antimicrobial resistance mechanisms is pivotal for combating superbugs that are constantly emerging.
  Direct observation of the structure and function of cooperatively assembled membrane spanning pores formed by antimicrobial peptides
  Dr O Castell, Dr Y Jin, Prof A Jones, Dr PD Watson
Application Deadline: 5 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will combine multiple single molecule imaging techniques applied to model membranes [1] to study the mechanisms of peptide interaction of established and novel AMPs.
  Nanoscale imaging of membrane pore formation in bacterial attack and immune defence
  Prof B Hoogenboom
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pore forming proteins are crucial armaments in the battle between organisms and their pathogens. Secreted as monomers in solution, these proteins self-assemble into oligomeric structures that punch holes into membranes.
  Transport of essential nutrients across the outer membrane of a bacterial pathogen
  Dr M Thomas
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gram-negative bacteria possess a second membrane, the outer membrane (OM), that serves as an additional line of defence against noxious agents, including antibiotics.
  Enhancing stability of biocatalyst for fuel cells and bioelectrocatalysis
  Prof L J C Jeuken, Dr P Beales
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Progress in biotechnology over the last two decades has greatly increased the use of biocatalyst in the industrial production of fine chemicals.
  Development of membrane-based compound semiconductor and devices for heterogeneous integration
  Prof B Ooi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Photonics laboratory at KAUST is conducting research on the development of membrane-based wide-gap compound semiconductors and developing micro / nano optoelectronic devices.
  Sorting old from new: protein assembly and turnover in the Gram-negative outer membrane
  Dr C G Baumann, Dr M A Fascione
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gram-negative bacteria have evolved to survive in diverse ecological niches. Some species are pathogenic, while others colonise the mammalian gut and aid food digestion.
  Proteomics to determine how defects in membrane trafficking within the secretory pathway cause human disease
  Prof M Lowe, Prof V Allan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Work in the Lowe laboratory is aimed at deciphering the molecular mechanisms that control membrane trafficking within cells. A major focus of our work is the trafficking of proteins to and through the Golgi apparatus, which lies at the heart of the secretory pathway.
