  Insulin receptor phosphorylation of SNARE proteins at the adipocyte plasma membrane
  Research Group: Institute of Molecular, Cell and Systems Biology
  Prof G Gould, Dr N Bryant
Application Deadline: 13 February 2019
The stimulation of glucose transport in peripheral tissues is a fundamental action of insulin.
  Understanding signalling by a novel hormone receptor in the brain
  Dr N Vasudevan, Prof P G Knight
Application Deadline: 1 April 2019
"Our laboratory is interested in how hormones, in particular oestrogen, signal and how this signal drives social behaviours in animals.
  Understanding the role of the novel apelin receptor ligand apela in the regulation of neuroendocrine function.
  Dr A O'Carroll
Applications accepted all year round
The apelin receptor APJ (1) was first identified as an orphan GPCR, with closest identity to the angiotensin II receptor, type AT1a.
  Circadian control of energy metabolism and inflammation: Employing a range of approaches to address the physiological importance of the circadian:nuclear receptor system, ranging from population genetics, experimental medicine studies, CRISPR engineered mice, and cell biology
  Prof D Ray
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
Employing a range of approaches to address the physiological importance of the circadian:nuclear receptor system, ranging from population genetics, experimental medicine studies, CRISPR engineered mice, and cell biology.
  Targeting the P2X7 purinergic receptor in melanoma (STOKESLU19SF)
  Dr L Stokes, Dr C Morris
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
There is much research into trying to regain control of cell proliferation or cell death (apoptosis) in cancer. Different strategies exist to do this and a multitude of individual receptor targets are being identified in tumour cell lines and primary cells.
  Modulation of mu-opioid receptor dynamics at the plasma membrane and its implications for signalling and trafficking
  Prof M Canals, Dr S Briddon
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019
The mu opioid receptor (MOP) is the target of most commonly used analgesics, such as morphine. Unfortunately, despite opioids being very effective at treating severe pain, they still induce adverse effects that limit their clinical use, including addiction, respiratory depression and constipation.
  Functional Selectivity and the Regulation of Receptor-Activated Signaling Pathways
  Dr G Cottrell, Dr D Widera, Dr S Amadesi, Dr A McNeish
Applications accepted all year round
The molecular mechanisms that regulate receptors and receptor-activated signaling pathways in the cardiovascular and nervous systems are complex.
  Plant genetics and molecular biology - dissecting the role of receptor-like kinases
  Dr L Smith
Applications accepted all year round
My group is interested in understanding aspects of basic plant biology, primarily through the application of molecular biology and genetics.
  Involvement of P2X7 receptors in cancer
  Dr E Polycarpou
Applications accepted all year round
The P2X receptors are a family of ligand-gated receptor channels activated by ATP and other extracellular nucleotides. A member of this family, the P2X7 purinergic receptor has been shown to play a crucial role in various physiological and pathophysiological processes.
  Structural biology of the intrinsically disordered protein SH2B1
  Prof M P Williamson
Applications accepted all year round
Signalling between the outside of the cell and the inside uses a complicated network of interacting systems. One common signalling mechanism uses receptor tyrosine kinases.
