  Structural and biophysical characterisation of novel plastic degrading enzymes
  Dr M Zahn, Prof J McGeehan, Dr A Pickford
Application Deadline: 7 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a fully-funded four year PhD studentship to commence in October 2020. The PhD will be based at the University’s Centre for Enzyme Innovation (CEI), and will be supervised by Dr Michael Zahn, Prof John McGeehan and Dr Andy Pickford.
  International PhD Programme Fellowships in Biomedicine

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Institute for Research in Biomedicine (IRB Barcelona) is recruiting highly motivated and talented students to its International PhD programme.
  Structure and activity of carbohydrate-active enzymes associated with human disease
  Dr L Willems, Prof G Davies
Application Deadline: 1 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Proteins on the surface of mammalian cells are often modified with diverse, complex carbohydrate structures. These carbohydrates, named glycans, play key roles in a range of cellular processes including cell-cell and host-pathogen interactions.

  Ion channel clustering in neuronal membranes
  Dr S M Prince, Prof R Ford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of the study is to investigate the organization of ion channels in the membranes of excitable cells by scaffold proteins, and to discover how the properties of the channels are modified by these interactions.
  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.
  The mechanism of gating and transport of pentameric Magnesium ion channels
  Dr S M Prince, Prof R Ford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Magnesium ions are a co-factor in many important biological processes particularly because of the requirement for Mg2+ in the hydrolysis of Adenosine tri-phosphate, the ubiquitous cellular energy source.
  Enzyme mechanism through advanced techniques
  Dr P C E Moody
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This studentship is for up to 4 years and supported by a Royal Society Wolfson Fellowship. “Traditional” protein X-ray crystallography has contributed enormously to our understanding of enzyme mechanisms.
  Development of Novel Crystallization Methods for Integral Membrane Proteins
  Dr G Patchornik
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our research is focused on one of the major barriers in Structural biology. growing high quality three dimensional (3D) crystals of integral membrane proteins for structural analysis.
  PhD Position in Cryo Electron Microscopy of Rhodopsin Cyclases
  Prof P Wendler
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Eukaryotic rhodopsin guanylyl cyclases (RhGC) and rhodopsin phosphodiesterases (RhPDE) combine a rhodopsin photoreceptor module with an enzymatic unit that catalyzes the conversion of cyclic nucleotides to the corresponding 5’-phosphate nucleotide or vice versa.
