  Synthetic Resistance to Potato Blight
  Prof R Van der Hoorn
Applications accepted all year round
The oomycete potato pathogen Phytophthora infestans has caused devastation during the Irish Potato Famine in the 1840s. P. infestans still causes major problems in the potato industry, and is mostly controlled using agrochemicals.
  Development of new serine protease inhibitors by optimisation of rationally designed covalent S1 fragments
  Dr M Stocks, Dr J Emsley
Applications accepted all year round
The PhD studentship is an EPSRC Doctoral Training Partnership (https://epsrc.ukri.org/skills/students/dta/termsconds/) in collaboration with KalVista Pharmaceuticals a pharmaceutical company focused on the discovery, development, and commercialisation of small molecule protease inhibitors for diseases with significant unmet medical need.
  Genetic basis of extracellular potato blight recognition in wild Solanum sp.
  Prof R Van der Hoorn
Applications accepted all year round
Potato late blight has caused the devastating Irish potato famine in the 1840s and is still an important pathogen in agriculture today.
  Functional analysis of fungal effector proteins in the barley/wheat powdery mildew plant-pathogen interactions.
  Dr L Bindschedler, Prof A Devoto
Applications accepted all year round
Pathogens secrete small proteins called effectors or virulence factors which are important for the successful invasion of the host.
  FGFR signalling in breast cancer
  Dr A Chioni
Applications accepted all year round
Growth factors are used during development to convey messages that tell cells to divide, survive, migrate and adopt a particular fate.
  Functional and structural studies of rod-like structures regulated by the dose and de-ubiquitinating activity of USP25, a gene with roles in Down Syndrome associated diseases
  Prof D Nizetic
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry at Queen Mary University of London and A*STAR PhD Studentship. Functional and structural studies of rod-like structures regulated by the dose and de-ubiquitinating activity of USP25, a gene with roles in Down Syndrome associated diseases.
  Novel extremophilic metalloprotease for consumer product application
  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
  Prof S Rosser
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
This PhD project will identify and characterise novel protease enzymes from extremophiles for use in processes and products of interest to the industrial collaborator Unilever.
  Cathepsin Z as a novel potential biomarker for osteoporosis
  Dr D Barraclough, Prof L Ranganath
Applications accepted all year round
Supervisors. Dr. Dong Barraclough, Professor Lakshminarayan Ranganath and Professor Sobhan Vinjamuri.
  Cryo electron microscopy to study innate immune complexes on the surface of cancer cells
  Dr J Emsley
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
Blood vessels of tumors carry specific markers on the cell surface. The innate immune system consisting of complement proteins and white blood cells (macrophages) are involved in the recognition and destruction of cancer cells.
  Functional assignment of Papain-like Cys proteases in plant development and immunity
  Prof R Van der Hoorn
Applications accepted all year round
The rapid and structured disassembly of plant proteomes during germination, senescence and defence are massive proteolytic events that underpin plant development and immunity.
