  SOD1 The Key protein for finding a cure for familial Motor Neurone Disease
  Dr S Antonyuk, Prof S Hasnain
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Motor neurone disease is a progressive, fatal neurological disorder with no known cure. It is characterised by selective loss of motor neurons in the spinal cord and cortex.
  TDP-43 The Key protein for finding a cure for Motor Neurone Disease
  Dr S Antonyuk, Prof S Hasnain
Applications accepted all year round

Motor neurone disease is a progressive, fatal neurological disorder with no known cure. It is characterised by selective loss of motor neurons in the spinal cord and cortex.
  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 fragment-based approach to identify protein-protein interaction inhibitors of Shelterin complex assembly
  Prof I Collins, Dr S Guettler, Dr S Hoelder
Application Deadline: 17 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Institute of Cancer Research, London, is one of the world’s most influential cancer research institutes. We are committed to attracting and developing the best minds in the world to join us in our mission—to make the discoveries that defeat cancer.
  Mechanism of transmembrane receptor activation
  Dr M Hyvonen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a PhD position, starting in October 2019, in the group Dr Marko Hyvonen at University of Cambridge (http://hyvonen.bioc.cam.ac.uk/) to study the mechanism of transmembrane signalling by TGFbeta family growth factors.
  Conformational dependence of glycan geometry in protein glycosylation: applications for macromolecular refinement in atomic structure determination by X-ray crystallography and electron cryo-microscopy
  Dr J Agirre, Dr K D Cowtan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Proteins are composed of 20 individual building blocks, the L-amino acids, linked together by a largely inflexible amide bond.
  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).
  Methionine adenosyltransferases in disease and regulation of gene expression
  Dr S Antonyuk, Prof S Hasnain
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Transmethylation, the transfer of a methyl group from one molecule to another, is a fundamental chemical reaction that plays a central role in important biological processes such as gene expression, cell growth and apoptosis.
  How does the protein LicB underpin infection by opportunistic bacteria?
  Dr P Curnow
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The human body is colonized by trillions of bacteria. These are generally harmless but can become a serious threat to human health.
  Modular design of custom protein structures
  Dr F Parmeggiani
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Proteins perform most of the functions in biological systems, from structural support, to movement, communication and catalysis. Our goal is to use modular building blocks to quickly and precisely design novel protein nanomaterials and nanoparticles to control cell behaviour.
