  Dr B Wall
Application Deadline: 15 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Join a world-leading, cross-continental research team.
  Building bionanohybrid circuits: understanding and applying single protein molecule function
  Prof J E Macdonald, Dr D Jones, Dr O Castell
Application Deadline: 5 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Merging ideas and principles from biology with the physical sciences has proved pivotal in improving our fundamental understanding of nature and the generation of new technologies that impact on our everyday lives.
  A bioinformatics approach to understanding protein solubility tags
  Dr J Warwicker, Dr R Curtis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The crowded environment of a cell cytoplasm reveals that proteins and other biological molecules co-exist at high macromolecular concentrations.
  Characterising surface properties of protein biopharmaceutical molecules
  Dr A Golovanov, Dr J Warwicker
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Protein biologicals have great potential for the effective treatment of a wide range of diseases. However, aggregation and instability are inherent issues with all protein pharmaceuticals, which is a problem that can limit their utility and developability.
  Deep Learning / Bioinformatics Approach for Protein-Protein Interaction Prediction
  Dr JC Nebel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Since most molecular processes rely on protein–protein interactions PPIs), knowledge of those interactions is extremely valuable for biomedical research and drug design.
  Oxidative protein folding of industrially and pharmaceutically important recombinant proteins
  Dr H Lu, Dr A Day
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Oxidative protein folding is an important process for the function of many proteins, which includes both folding and formation of native disulphide bonds.
  Exploiting advanced methods for protein structure prediction
  Prof D J Rigden, Dr R Keegan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Protein structural information is crucial for an understanding of protein function and evolution. Currently, there is only experimental data for a tiny fraction of the protein universe.
  Discerning the mechanisms of cell membrane budding by coronavirus non structured proteins nsp3, nsp4 and nsp6
  Dr D Köster, Dr A Dixon
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Coronaviruses are positive strand- non-segmented RNA viruses, infect a wide range of hosts including mammalian species and have recently caused the severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), the Middle-East respiratory syndrome (MERS) and the current SARS CoV-2 (Covid-19) pandemic.
  Cellular protein quality control in diabetes-associated heart disease: The insight into mechanisms and therapeutic potentials
  Dr V Liu, Dr L Swanton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cardiovascular complications are the leading causes of diabetes mortality. With the exception of vascular and valvular injuries, diabetic cardiomyopathy (DCM) is a distinct myocardial disease, which is characterised by abnormal cellular metabolism and defects in organelles function, leading to impaired cardiac function.
  Regulatory roles for ribosome-associated proteins in protein synthesis
  Prof G D Pavitt, Dr M Pool
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Protein synthesis is a highly-conserved, dynamic and tightly controlled process that is central to the activity of all cells. All phases of translation can be controlled.
  Build and destroy: investigating targeted protein degradation in plant development and stress-response
  Dr D Gibbs
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In order to effectively co-ordinate their growth and development, plants need to be able to respond to changes in their environment, whether it is adapting to the seasons or coping with stresses.
  MSc by Research Programme: Greasing protein function – how is post-translational protein S-acylation regulated in plants?
  Dr P Hemsley
Application Deadline: 16 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This course allows you to work alongside our world renowned experts from the School of Life Sciences and gain a ’real research’ experience.
  Working at the intersection of protein bioinformatics and structural biology: exploiting protein structural ensembles to facilitate structure solution from X-ray crystallography and cryo-EM
  Prof D J Rigden, Dr R Keegan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Structural biology contributes enormously to advances across all areas of biology. X-ray crystallography is the major structure determination workhorse but cryo-EM studies are increasingly popular and powerful.
  Regulation of synaptic protein function by protein palmitoylation
  Dr M Collins
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Palmitoylation (S-acylation), the only known reversible lipid modification of proteins, is an important regulator of protein localisation and function.
  Exploring the functional and pathological relevance of DJ-1 phosphorylation
  Prof F Giorgini
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

DJ-1 is a small conserved protein of 189 residues which is ubiquitously expressed and primarily localized to the cytoplasm, but also found in the nucleus and associated with mitochondria.
