A joint Crick-King’s College London funded PhD position for the 2020 programme between the labs of Maxim Molodtsov and Susan Cox.
  Mechanisms of microtubule organization by cell-cell adhesion in epithelial cells.
  Dr N Bulgakova
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

The correct organization of the microtubule cytoskeleton is critical for the survival and normal function of cells in a multicellular organism.
  Cytoskeleton self-organisation and microtubule-based transport
  Prof A Straube
Application Deadline: 15 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Disciplines. Physical Sciences, Biological and Medical Sciences,. Subjects. Biophysics, Biochemistry, Cell Biology / Development.
  Microtubule motors in cell migration and integrin trafficking
  Prof V Allan, Prof P Woodman, Dr P Caswell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cell migration is vital for the development and health of multicellular organisms. However, enhanced cell migration is also a hallmark of cancer cells, and contributes greatly to metastasis.
  Dissecting the tubulin diversity: understanding how tubulin isotypes regulate microtubule networks
  Dr J Ti
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

α/β-tubulin heterodimers form dynamic polymers, microtubules, that are central to cellular processes, such as cell division, cell migration, and organelle transportation.
  Role of the centrosome and cilia in development
  Dr C Wilkinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  CDKL5’s role in neuronal homeostatic plasticity
  Dr S Ultanir, Dr J Burrone
Application Deadline: 12 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

A joint Crick-King’s College London funded PhD position for the 2019 programme between the labs of Sila Ultanir and Juan Burrone.
  Structural and biochemical analysis of chromosome segregation in yeast
  Dr D Barford
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our research is focused on understanding the mechanisms and regulation of chromosome segregation in mitosis. During the cell cycle, accurate chromosome segregation ensures that both daughter cells inherit the correct complement of chromosomes.
  Exploring the mitotic functions of ASPM in human brain size regulation
  Dr J Bond, Dr E E Morrison, Prof M Peckham
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The increase in relative brain size is one of the most striking events in human evolution. To determine how human brain size is normally regulated we have investigated the cause of autosomal recessive primary microcephaly (MCPH), a congenital disorder of reduced brain size and associated mental retardation.
  Development of new drugs to reverse tumour resistance to chemotherapy
  Research Group: Biomedical Research Group
  Dr C Erridge, Dr G Pirianov
Applications accepted all year round
