  Working at the intersection of protein bioinformatics and structural biology: exploiting protein structural ensembles to facilitate structure solution from X-ray crystallography and cryo-EM
  Prof D J Rigden, Dr R Keegan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Structural biology contributes enormously to advances across all areas of biology. X-ray crystallography is the major structure determination workhorse but cryo-EM studies are increasingly popular and powerful.
  Dissecting the role of MCE proteins in Cyanobacteria
  Dr V Darbari, Prof C Mullineaux
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The School of Biological and Chemical Sciences at Queen Mary is one of the UK’s elite research centres, according to the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF).
  A multidisciplinary approach to elucidate how TB obtains and uses essential energy sources
  Dr E Fullam, Dr A Cameron, Prof I Gibson
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tuberculosis (TB) is a major global health challenge. TB is now the leading cause of death from a single infectious agent worldwide killing more people than HIV and malaria combined.
  Bacterial ABC transporters involved in antibiotic resistance and sensing
  Dr A Crow, Prof D Roper, Dr S Gebhard
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Type VII ABC transporters are a superfamily of ATP-powered membrane proteins that function in bacterial antibiotic resistance, toxin secretion, cell division and membrane biogenesis [1,2,3].
  Protein complexes required for bacterial cell wall biosynthesis and division
  Prof D Roper, Dr A Crow, Dr M Jenner, Prof T R Dafforn
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) is now widely understood to be a global healthcare emergency, exacerbated by many socio-economic factors.
  Molecular mechanism of innate immunity mediated by the Toll/IL1 receptor signalling pathways.
  Prof N J Gay
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This group participates in the Wellcome Trust 4 year PhD programme in Developmental biology., MRC and BBSRC Doctoral Training Programmes.
  Molecular architecture of a DNA transfer machinery and its contribution to the dissemination of antibiotic resistance
  Prof T Forsyth, Dr D Traore
Application Deadline: 29 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project title. Molecular architecture of a DNA transfer machinery and its contribution to the dissemination of antibiotic resistance genes.
  Molecular mechanisms of herpesviral infection
  Dr A Golovanov
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Herpes viruses are known to cause a wide range of human diseases, ranging from simple cold sores to cancer, Kaposi Sarcoma. Kaposi Sarcoma, for example, is a type of cancer which affects immunocompromised patients and is endemic in Africa, where it is linked with the spread of HIV infection and AIDS.
  Rewiring Bacterial Metabolism through Assembly of Biological nanowires (CLARKETU20VC)
  Dr T Clarke, Prof D J Richardson, Prof J Butt
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BACKGROUND. In a microbial fuel cell, respiring bacteria pass electrons generated during metabolism to an anode, which generates electric current.
  Myocardial biology with a specific focus on the mechanisms underlying cardiac fibrosis and atrial fibrillation
  Dr S Reilly, Prof C Redwood, Assoc Prof M Lei
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cardiac fibrosis is a hallmark histological feature of structural changes in the myocardium associated with virtually all cardiac diseases (e.g., heart failure, hypertension, atrial fibrillation and myocarditis).
  “Green carbon capture”: Towards a mechanistic understanding of how photosynthetic bacteria transport and store CO2.
  Dr A Cameron, Dr R Puxty, Prof D J Scanlan
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Membrane transport proteins enable small molecules such as nutrients, ions, neurotransmitters, and toxins to move across cellular membranes.
  Ultrafast crystallography using X-ray Free Electron Lasers

  The chemistry and biophysics of phosphoryl transfer enzymes
  Prof J Waltho, Dr A Almond
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the most remarkable features of the chemistry of living organisms is the evolutionary utilisation of phosphate esters to provide biopolymers that encode genetic information, deliver temporal protein regulation, generate and distribute free energy throughout the cell, and to provide a ubiquitous handle for metabolic intermediates.
  Structure based design of angiotensin-converting enzyme (from Anopheles gambiae) inhibitors as mosquitocides
  Prof K R Acharya
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The mosquitoes of the Anopheles and Aedes genus are some of the most deadly insects to humans because of their effectiveness as vectors of malaria and a range of arboviruses, including yellow fever, dengue, chikungunya, West Nile and zika.
