  Advancing our understanding of fundamental cellular processes by investigating membrane contact sites.
  Dr P Pryor, Dr C G Baumann
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

An emerging, exciting area of research is that of membrane contact site (MCS) biology.
  Application of machine learning to establish epigenetic regulators in breast and bladder epithelial tissue
  Dr AN Holding, Prof J Southgate
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Epigenetics. modifications to DNA and histones that change the expression. of genes but do not alter the code of the genes, are critical to the.
  Caught in a Venus flytrap: investigating the segregation dynamics of a multidrug resistance plasmid
  Dr D Barilla, Dr M Hawkins
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bacterial multidrug resistance is a growing burden on human health worldwide. Large, low copy number plasmids carrying resistance genes shuttle easily from cell to cell in bacterial populations, causing intra-species and inter-species spreading of antibiotic resistance.
  Characterization the role RNA interaction in TDP-43 protein dynamic in neurons
  Dr HJ Chen, Dr M Plevin
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

RNA-binding proteins (RBPs) play an important role in the neuronal system. Dysregulation of RBPs caused by cellular stress or disrupted protein.
  Combining the strengths of competing automated protein model building tools through open research
  Dr K D Cowtan, Prof A A Antson
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD position is available to work in the group of Dr Kevin Cowtan on computational methods for automatic building of protein structures.
  Comparative analysis of carbon assimilation pathways in key species of marine phytoplankton
  Dr T Tonon, Dr L Mackinder
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Seas and oceans cover more than 70% of our planet, contribute to half of the primary production on Earth, and are responsible for cycling half of the carbon fixed by living organisms.
  Cooperative, non-specific binding and aggregation in protein/RNAinteractions: Beyond stoichiometry, specificity, and discrete binding sites
  Dr M Plevin, Dr S Shimizu
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Interactions between biomolecules are typically considered to be both. specific and stoichiometric. Even in cases of multiple binding sites,.
  Deciphering algal metabolism of key marine chemicals involved in the sulfur biogeochemical cycle
  Dr T Tonon, Prof S J McQueen-Mason
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Marine ecosystems play major role in the biogeochemical cycling of several chemical elements, including sulfur. This is due to the metabolism of two key compounds, dimethylsulfoniopropionate (DMSP) and dimethyl sulfide (DMS).
  Designing a microbial platform for the biorefinery of Sargassum (brown algae) golden tides
  Dr T Tonon, Prof S J McQueen-Mason
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Oceans are the largest untapped growth opportunity for biomass. As an. illustration, golden tides due to the massive beaching of floating Sargassum.
  Development of magnetic nanoparticles for in vivo tissue regeneration
  Dr D Ungar, Prof P G Genever
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The regeneration of injured tissues can best be achieved through the action of appropriate stem cells that proliferate and differentiate to heal the injury.
