  Molecular mechanisms underpinning EML4 driven microtubule stabilization and cell migration
  Prof A M Fry, Prof K Brown
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
EML4 is a poorly characterised microtubule-associated protein [1]. The purpose of this cell biology-focused PhD project is to explore the molecular mechanisms through which EML4 regulates microtubule dynamics and cell migration.
  Mechanisms of microtubule organization by cell-cell adhesion in epithelial cells.
  Dr N Bulgakova
Applications accepted all year round
The correct organization of the microtubule cytoskeleton is critical for the survival and normal function of cells in a multicellular organism.
  Role of the centrosome and cilia in development
  Dr C Wilkinson
Applications accepted all year round
My research interest lies in the roles of centrioles and associated proteins, as parts of the centrosome and cilium, in early vertebrate development, using zebrafish embryos as a model system.
  Functional role of presynaptic tau during aging and Alzheimer’s disease
  Dr W Noble, Dr P Giese
Application Deadline: 13 May 2019
1 fully funded 4-year BBSRC CASE studentship with AstraZeneca. Tau is a microtubule stabilizing protein primarily localized to the axonal region of neurons but is also found in synapses.
  Actin-dependent mechanisms of chromosome segregation in mammalian eggs
  Dr B Mogessie
Applications accepted all year round
Every human life starts when an egg is fertilised by a sperm. Fertilisable eggs are produced from oocytes by a specialised form of cell division called meiosis (1).
  Spatial control of autophagosome biogenesis
  Dr J D Lane
Applications accepted all year round
Autophagy is an essential catabolic process that promotes cell survival during episodes of nutrient/growth factor stress. Autophagy is involved in many human diseases, so complete understanding of this process is needed.
  The molecular mechanisms of organelle transport by motor protein myosin-V
  Dr A Hume
Applications accepted all year round
Organelle transport is essential for cellular function and survival, and these processes are disrupted in many common diseases including cancer, diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease.
