  Dynamics of protein folding on the ribosome
  Dr D Balchin
Application Deadline: 12 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 4-year PhD studentship is offered in Dr David Balchin’s Group based at the Francis Crick Institute (the Crick). Proteins are synthesised on the ribosome as linear polypeptides that in most cases must fold into defined 3-D structures to be biologically active.
  Breaking the rule: blocking protein degradation by N-terminal tagging as a strategy to cure disease
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr CM Czekster
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background and project details. Proteins in a cell can last less than a minute to several days. Not only does the cell need to control protein levels but it must also eliminate proteins that are misfolded or abnormal in any way.
  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.
  Regulation of protein-protein interactions
  Prof R Vácha
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project is focused on the regulation of protein interactions, which have been associated with numerous diseases including cancer.
  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.
  From start to finish: roles for the N-end rule pathway of protein degradation in plant development and stress-response
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  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.
  Exploiting advanced methods for protein structure prediction
  Dr 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.
  Chemical biology approaches to study the ubiquitin system
  Dr K Rittinger
Application Deadline: 12 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 4-year PhD studentship is offered in Dr Katrin Rittinger’s Group based at the Francis Crick Institute (the Crick).
