  Membrane protein biogenesis and quality control
  Dr R Hegde
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Approximately 20-25% of genes in humans encode integral membrane proteins that must be selectively targeted to and inserted into the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) membrane.
  Water treatment with membranes in Scotland: what affects their performance, and how to improve their lifespan?
  Dr A Semião, Dr S Romero-Vargas Castrillon, Dr M Graham
Application Deadline: 1 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mankind cannot survive without potable water. Despite this, our potable water resources are becoming more polluted due to human activity (e.g., mining, industry and agriculture), rendering them unfit for consumption.
  Membrane protein misfolding and disease: quality control pathways
  Dr L Swanton, Prof P Woodman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Misfolded proteins represent a continuous threat to cell viability, and if allowed to accumulate, can disrupt cellular function and induce cell death.
  Protein sensitivity of membrane curvature
  Prof R Vácha
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The control of biological membrane shape and composition is vital to eukaryotic life. The shape is so specific that it allows us to recognize various organelles in the cell.
  Development of Novel Crystallization Methods for Integral Membrane Proteins
  Dr G Patchornik
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our research is focused on one of the major barriers in Structural biology. growing high quality three dimensional (3D) crystals of integral membrane proteins for structural analysis.
  Sustainable Lithium Mining and Recycling using Membrane Technology
  Dr Y Huang
Application Deadline: 11 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

With continual technological advancements in mobile devices and electric cars, the global demand for lithium has quickly outpaced the rate at which it can be mined or recycled.
  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.
  Complement resistance mechanisms by multi-drug resistant Klebsiella pneumonia
  Prof S Rooijakkers, Prof A Blom
Application Deadline: 10 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to characterize complement evasion molecules in the opportunistic bacterium Klebsiella pneumoniae (K. pneumoniae) where carbapenem-resistance grew from 1.6% to 10.4% in 10 years.
  Self-association of the Alzheimer’s peptide Aβ on membrane surfaces
  Prof M P Williamson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Alzheimer’s disease is a neurodegenerative disease that is particularly common amongst the elderly. It accounts for about 65% of all cases of dementia, and affects about 6% of people over 65, rising to 50% of people over 85.
  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.
