  A functional proteomic approach to reveal how receptor tyrosine kinases trafficking specifies cancer cell responses
  Dr C Francavilla, Prof S Hubbard
Applications accepted all year round
Background and goals. Cells respond appropriately to their surroundings by activating plasma membrane spanning receptors like Receptor Tyrosine Kinases (RTKs) and thereby adapting long-term outputs (e.g.
  The role of the Exocyst complex in trafficking ion channels in polarised epithelia
  Dr K Hamilton, Prof F McDonald
Applications accepted all year round
Associate Professor Kirk L. Hamilton and Associate Professor Fiona J. McDonald. Proper trafficking of ion channels in epithelia is key to epithelial cell function.
  MRC DTP 4 Year PhD Programme: Structural and developmental mechanics in polarized membrane trafficking
  Dr D H Murray, Dr J Januschke
Application Deadline: 19 April 2019
This project is part of our exciting and challenging University of Dundee 4-year MRC DTP Programme in Quantitative and Interdisciplinary approaches to biomedical science.
  The long and winding roads of the cell
  Research Group: Physics of Life - Biological Physics and Biophysics
  Prof M Leake, Dr C MacDonald
Application Deadline: 1 September 2019
Intracellular membrane trafficking is essential for many cellular processes and its impairment leads to over 80 major human diseases.
  Investigating the role of the mechanosensor channel Piezo1 in human disease
  Dr K Erdmann
Applications accepted all year round
Piezo proteins are ion channels that are gated by mechanical stimuli like stretch or shear stress. In mammalians there are two Piezo isoforms (Piezo1 and Piezo2) with largely different expression pattern.
  Syndecan-4 regulates cell migration during healing and cancer through caveolar endocytosis
  Dr M Bass
Applications accepted all year round
Cell migration during wound healing or cancer cell invasion involves responses to multiple factors including extracellular matrix and growth factors.
  Cytoskeletal dynamics and intracellular trafficking in angiogenesis
  Prof H Mellor
Applications accepted all year round
Angiogenesis is the fundamental physiological process by which new blood vessels are generated from pre-existing vasculature.
  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: 6 May 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.
  Nanoscale organization of adaptor scaffolds involved in polarized cargo sorting at the trans-Golgi network (TGN)
  Prof F Bottanelli
Application Deadline: 29 April 2019
A 4 years PhD position will be available in the group of Prof. Francesca Bottanelli at Freie Universität Berlin (Institute of Chemistry and Biochemistry) pending approval of the upcoming Collaborative Research Centre 958 "Scaffolding of Membranes - Molecular Mechanisms and Cellular Functions".
  Biogenesis of nitrous oxide reductase – a key enzyme in controlling climate change (LEBRUNNU19SF)
  Prof N Le Brun, Dr A Gates
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
Atmospheric nitrous oxide (N2O) not only destroys stratospheric ozone, it also accounts for ~10% of the impact due to greenhouse gases.
