  The production of alcohols as commodity chemicals/ biofuels using yeast as a vehicle
  Prof M Ashe, Prof C M Grant, Dr J-M Schwartz, Dr J Winterburn
Applications accepted all year round
Crude oil represents probably the most important natural resource to industrial nations. As well as fuel, crude oil is used to produce a host of chemicals that govern modern day life.
  Induction of yeast prions by oxidative stress
  Prof C M Grant, Prof M Ashe
Applications accepted all year round
Prions are novel protein-only infectious agents associated with a group of transmissible neurodegenerative diseases typified by human Creutzfeldt Jakob Disease (CJD).
  Production of Industrial Chemicals for Personal Care and Health Care Using Oleaginous Yeast
  Dr TS Wong, Dr K Tee
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Many ingredients in the personal care and health care products, for example lipids, are derived from petroleum, animal fat or vegetable oil.
  Investigating Organelle movement and inheritance by using a combination of yeast genetics, cell and molecular biology and live cell imaging
  Dr E Hettema
Applications accepted all year round
With every cell division cycle, organelles duplicate and are segregated between progeny cells. Cells have evolved organized ways of organelle segregation.
  Defining the sequence requirements for neo-centromere function in the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe
  Dr W R A Brown, Dr W Wickstead
Applications accepted all year round
Centromeres are the regions of the chromosome necessary for accurate segregation at cell division. They bind a complex set of proteins called the kinetochore which in turn tethers the chromosome to the microtubules of the spindle at cell division.
  Mapping the molecular mechanisms of chaperone-catalysed division of amyloid fibrils
  Dr W-F Xue, Prof M F Tuite
Application Deadline: 4 February 2019
PhD STUDENTSHIP STARTING Sept 2019. LOCATION. Kent Fungal Group, School of Biosciences, University of Kent, Canterbury. How do molecular chaperones interact and fragment amyloid fibrils in cells? This is the central question that this PhD project will address.
  Selective Autophagy of the Endoplasmic Reticulum
  Dr S Schuck
Applications accepted all year round
The laboratory of Sebastian Schuck at the Center for Molecular Biology of Heidelberg University is looking for a PhD student to investigate micro-ER-phagy, a novel type of autophagy that selectively targets the Endoplasmic Reticulum (ER).
  Dynamics of the Structure Maintenance of Chromosome (SMC) complexes
  Prof J Fajkus, Prof J Palecek
Application Deadline: 3 February 2019
The SMC (Structure Maintenance of Chromosome) complexes are the key components of higher-order chromatin fibers and play important roles in genome stability.
  Dynamics of the Structure Maintenance of Chromosome (SMC) complexes
  Prof J Palecek
Application Deadline: 3 February 2019
The SMC (Structure Maintenance of Chromosome) complexes are the key components of higher-order chromatin fibers and play important roles in genome stability.
  Centromere inheritance in S. pombe and beyond
  Dr L Subramanian
Applications accepted all year round
Accurate chromosome segregation relies on the stable inheritance of functional centromeres through generations. A key determinant of centromere function is the histone H3 variant CENP-A (Centromere Protein A), that epigenetically marks and specifies active centromeres.
