  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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Proteomics to determine how defects in membrane trafficking within the secretory pathway cause human disease
  Prof M Lowe, Prof V Allan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Work in the Lowe laboratory is aimed at deciphering the molecular mechanisms that control membrane trafficking within cells. A major focus of our work is the trafficking of proteins to and through the Golgi apparatus, which lies at the heart of the secretory pathway.
  Search for new regulators of intracellular trafficking in plants
  Dr T Nodzynski, Dr M Zwiewka
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants are the organisms providing oxygen for the biosphere being the fundamental element of food chain, therefore, basic understanding of molecular mechanisms guiding their growth is essential.
  Researching human trafficking policies and programmes in West Africa
  Dr A Balch
Application Deadline: 8 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human trafficking and ‘modern slavery’ have been identified as among the key priorities in the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals but there is a lack of high quality, critical research into the production of evidence in this area, and its uptake by policymakers, particularly in low and middle-income countries.
  The role of the Exocyst complex in trafficking ion channels in polarised epithelia
  Dr K Hamilton, Prof F McDonald
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Associate Professor Kirk L. Hamilton and Associate Professor Fiona J. McDonald. Proper trafficking of ion channels in epithelia is key to epithelial cell function.
  Microtubule motors in cell migration and integrin trafficking
  Prof V Allan, Prof P Woodman, Dr P Caswell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cell migration is vital for the development and health of multicellular organisms. However, enhanced cell migration is also a hallmark of cancer cells, and contributes greatly to metastasis.
  Physical mechanisms of evolution of cell trafficking
  Dr A Saric
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Complex eukaryotic cells first appeared on earth over a billion years ago. Such cells are built out of physical compartments separated from each other by membrane boundaries.
  Leucocyte trafficking in multiple sclerosis - a systems biology approach for personalised medicine
  Dr C Rice, Dr L Marucci
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are now open for a PhD studentship entitled ‘Leucocyte trafficking in multiple sclerosis - a systems biology approach for personalised medicine’ via the GW4 BioMed MRC Doctoral Training Partnership.
  Investigating the role of the mechanosensor channel Piezo1 in human disease
  Dr K Erdmann
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cell migration during wound healing or cancer cell invasion involves responses to multiple factors including extracellular matrix and growth factors.
