  Functional characterization of Neisserial toxin-antitoxin systems
  Dr N Oldfield, Dr D Turner
Applications accepted all year round
Toxin-antitoxin (TA) systems are commonly found in both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria and comprise a stable toxin able to stall bacterial replication and an antitoxin that neutralises the activity of the toxin.
  Visualizing synaptic AMPA receptors with con-ikot-ikot toxin
  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
  Dr J Baranovic, Dr M Horrocks
Application Deadline: 13 December 2018
AMPA-type glutamate receptors are transmembrane proteins found in the postsynaptic membranes of our central nervous system. They play one of the main roles during excitatory synaptic transmission in the mammalian brain.
  Chimeric Human-NavMs Sodium Channel Constructs for Structure/Function Studies of Selective Toxin Binding
  Prof B A Wallace
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Voltage-gated sodium channels are responsible for a wide range of neurological and cardiovascular channelopathies, and hence are important current and future targets for the development of novel and highly specific pharmaceutical drugs.
  Protein engineering of synthetic enzyme switches for the next generation for infectious-disease and toxin diagnostics. (CASE Studentship with Dstl)
  Research Group: School of Biomedical Sciences
  Prof L J C Jeuken, Prof C Wälti
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
There is an ever-increasing demand for better, more reliable, more cost-effective, faster point-of-care (PoC) diagnostic tools.
  Development of a novel immunotoxin
  Dr L J Partridge
Applications accepted all year round
Immunotoxins represent a form of immunotherapy whereby antibodies are used to target a toxin, usually to cancer or infected host cells.
  Intervention management options for algal blooms: working with the Canal and River Trust
  Dr R Perkins
Application Deadline: 17 December 2018
The Canal and River Trust own and manage over 2000 miles of waterways used for a wide range of recreational purposes and which also support a highly important aquatic biodiversity and scarce and rare species of wildlife.
  Identifying new drugs to combat the virulence mechanisms underlying multidrug-resistant typhoid.
  Dr D Humphreys
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Multidrug-resistant typhoid. --------------------------------------------. The world is facing an epidemic of multidrug-resistant (MDR) typhoid fever.
  Dangerous liaisons: the relationships between algal blooms and human pathogens in freshwaters
  Dr D Oliver, Dr L Carvalho, Dr P Hunter, Dr R Quilliam
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
We are seeking a highly motivated individual to carry out interdisciplinary PhD research linking across freshwater ecology and applied microbiology in the context of integrated catchment management.
  Structural analysis of the Legionella pneumophila type IV secretion system by single particle cryo-electron microscopy.
  Dr T Costa
Application Deadline: 1 January 2019
A 3.5-year MRC funded PhD studentship is available to work in the laboratory of Dr Tiago Costa, in the Centre for Molecular Bacteriology and Infection (CMBI) at Imperial College London.
  Metabolic rewiring in liver cancer: Role of oxidative stress and the Nrf2 pathway
  Dr A. Cox
Applications accepted all year round
Many of the major risks factors for developing liver cancer such as alcohol, obesity, smoking and toxin exposure share in common a role for oxidative stress.
