  Investigating the structure and function of the divisome, the multi-protein complex that facilitates cell division in bacteria.
  Dr J Lowe
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

When bacteria and archaea divide, most form a ring structure that facilitates the separation of mother and daughter cells. The best-known component of the cytokinetic ring is FtsZ, the bacterial tubulin homologue.
  Mechanisms of regulation of the phosphoinositide 3-kinase family of enzymes
  Dr R Williams
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our research programme aims at establishing mechanisms of regulation of an ancient family of giant kinases involved in cellular homeostasis.
  Role and mechanism of mitochondrial transport proteins (On the University’s application portal, please select "PhD in Medical Science at the MRC Mitochondrial Biology Unit").
  Prof E Kunji
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Mitochondria are central to the utilization of sugars and fat by the eukaryotic cell in order to synthesise ATP via oxidative phosphorylation.
  Using convolutional neural networks to distinguish between autophagy and related processes
  Dr R Beale
Application Deadline: 12 November 2019

This 4-year PhD studentship is offered in Dr Rupert Beale’s Group based at the Francis Crick Institute (the Crick).
  A functional proteomic approach to reveal how receptor tyrosine kinases trafficking specifies cancer cell responses
  Dr C Francavilla, Prof S Hubbard
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background and goals. Cells respond appropriately to their surroundings by activating plasma membrane spanning receptors like Receptor Tyrosine Kinases (RTKs) and thereby adapting long-term outputs (e.g.
  Preparing the acid bath: how epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) controls its own down-regulation
  Prof P Woodman, Dr C Francavilla
Applications accepted all year round

Signalling by cell surface receptors determines nearly every aspect of the cell’s response to its environment. Endosomes are hubs for regulating these signalling pathways.
  Live cell imaging under extreme conditions
  Dr B Baum
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Complex eukaryotic cells first appeared on earth over a billion years ago. It is now thought that they arose as the result of the establishment of a symbiotic partnership between an archaeal host cell and a bacterium, which went on to become the mitochondrion.
  The role of pore-forming bacterial proteins in pneumonia and meningitis
  Prof T J Mitchell, Dr M Tomlinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The bacterium Streptococcus pneumoniae (the pneumococcus) is carried in the nasopharynx of most children and some adults without causing disease.
  Simulation and Optimisation of Reverse Osmosis Based Desalination Process
  Research Group: Mechanical and Process Engineering
  Prof I Mujtaba
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Potable water supply is becoming a limited resource now days due to the increase in size of the community. Desalination process to compensate the shortage in potable water is necessary.
  Identification of colistin resistant gene, mcr-1, in clinical isolated Enterobacteriaceae and characterisation of pathogenicity and virulence of mcr-1 harboured bacterial pathogens
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr C Chang, Dr J N Fletcher
Applications accepted all year round
