  Protein sensitivity of membrane curvature
  Prof R Vácha
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The control of biological membrane shape and composition is vital to eukaryotic life. The shape is so specific that it allows us to recognize various organelles in the cell.
  Self-association of the Alzheimer’s peptide Aβ on membrane surfaces
  Prof M P Williamson
Applications accepted all year round

Alzheimer’s disease is a neurodegenerative disease that is particularly common amongst the elderly. It accounts for about 65% of all cases of dementia, and affects about 6% of people over 65, rising to 50% of people over 85.
  Imaging viruses and cells by electron cryomicroscopy (cryoEM)
  Dr P Rosenthal
Application Deadline: 12 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 4-year PhD studentship is offered in Dr Peter Rosenthal’s Group based at the Francis Crick Institute (the Crick). Our group studies the architecture of large protein assemblies in order to understand basic molecular mechanisms that control protein and membrane traffic in the cell and in virus infection.
  A mechanistic understanding of circadian clock-dependent regulation of the secretory pathway
  Prof K E Kadler, Dr Q-J Meng, Dr J Swift
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The protein secretory pathway comprises a series of membranous compartments and transport vesicles that cells use to synthesise, post-translationally modify, and move proteins for delivery to the plasma membrane or for secretion to the extracellular matrix.
  Red blood cells and phagocytosis: how the immune system sorts new cells from old. PhD in Mathematics (GW4 BioMed MRC DTP)
  Dr D Richards
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisory team. Dr David Richards, Department of Mathematics, Living Systems Institute, University of Exeter. Charlie Jeynes, Department of Mathematics, Living Systems Institute, University of Exeter.
  Molecular analysis of neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) in rheumatoid arthritis
  Dr HL Wright, Prof RJ Moots
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) kill pathogens via the release of chromatin and anti-microbial granule enzymes in an extracellular mesh or “net”.
  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.
  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.
  Using our expertise to develop future scientists - BHF Four Year Programme

Soon 1 in 10 UK adults will have diabetes. In spite of modern treatments, most of these people will suffer major cardiovascular problems, including heart attack and stroke impairing their quality of life and survival.
  PhD Studentship – Predicting Skin Interactions and Permeation of Chemical Agents using Computational Modelling
  Prof J W Essex
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Co-Supervisor. Dr Thomas J Piggot (Dstl). The skin is the outermost barrier for most of the human body. The majority of chemicals that come into contact with the body will initially do so through an interaction with the skin.
