  Structural Biology of Wnt Signalling
  Dr K Tripsianes
Application Deadline: 20 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We apply structural biology methods in order to gain a mechanistic view of CK1ε action in the Wnt signalling pathways. CK1ε represents an attractive therapeutic target but currently two key steps in the CK1ε-mediated Wnt signal transduction are unclear.
  Integrative structural biology of 3’UTRs
  Dr P J Lukavsky, Dr B Tichý, Prof Z Zdrahal
Application Deadline: 20 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The non-coding part of the genome vastly increased from worm to humans while the number of protein-coding genes remained constant.
  Structural biology of the intrinsically disordered protein SH2B1
  Prof M P Williamson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Signalling between the outside of the cell and the inside uses a complicated network of interacting systems. One common signalling mechanism uses receptor tyrosine kinases.
  Control and inhibition of virus replication
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Dr A.K Tuplin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type


The Tuplin laboratory utilises a range of cutting-edge approaches to investigate how arboviruses - specificaly Chikungunya, Dengue and Zika viruses - control replication and translation of their genomes through interactions between RNA structures, host cell proteins and non-coding RNA, and the potential of such RNA elements/interactions as novel therapeutic targets.
  Exploiting druggability host spots in protein phosphatase targets
  Dr L Tabernero, Prof D Procter, Dr S Butterworth
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the past years the use of virtual screening or computer-based screening of compound libraries against selected targets has expanded exponentially the boundaries of drug discovery.
  Novel strategies for the diagnosis and treatment of snakebites
  Dr S Vaiyapuri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Snakebites represent a major neglected tropical disease affecting several million people worldwide and resulting in as many as 150000 deaths each year.
  A better model for structures of biological macromolecules determined by X-ray crystallography
  Research Group: Thorn Lab
  Dr A Thorn
Application Deadline: 1 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

For over 50 years, X-ray crystallography has been the primary method to determine the structures of biological macromolecules. However, the atomic structure is not the direct outcome of the experiment.
  Combining Synthetic Biology and Modelling to Understand and Predict Evolution
  Dr M Lagator, Dr J-M Schwartz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mutations, and their effects on organismal fitness, lie at the heart of understanding and predicting evolution. Because of its central role in determining evolutionary outcomes, much experimental and theoretical effort has been put into describing the fitness effects of mutations.
  IMPRS "From Molecules To Organisms”

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our PhD program in the life sciences places special emphasis on interdisciplinary interactions. We want to train the next generation of scientists to study complex biological processes that cannot be adequately understood within the limits of a single discipline.
  EMBL Australia Partnership PhD Program

Funding Type

PhD Type

Undertake interdisciplinary, postgraduate research for a PhD degree at Australia's top life science laboratories. Successful students will receive generous scholarships and travel grants while undertaking their PhD at an EMBL Australia laboratory in Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra or Adelaide.
  The role of Efflux in Antibiotic Resistance of Clinically Relevant Pathogens
  Dr J Blair
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antibiotics underpin all of modern medicine; they are used to treat bacterial infections, and to prevent infections after surgery and in patients with a suppressed immune system such as those undergoing cancer chemotherapy or organ transplantation.

PhD Type

Our PhD program in the life sciences places special emphasis on interdisciplinary interactions. We want to train the next generation of scientists to study complex biological processes that cannot be adequately understood within the limits of a single discipline.
  Protein engineering enzymes for Industry
  Prof K A Watson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are interested in key features of protein sequence - structure - function relationship, and how this information can be translated to health.
  Molecular analysis of the dynamic sulfotyrosine proteome
  Prof C E Eyers, Prof P Eyers, Dr A R Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The survival of an organism depends upon the ability of different cell types to communicate with each other by assembling the correct complexes of proteins at the correct time in the correct place.
  Next-generation protein engineering: integration of ab-initio modelling, high-throughput screening and structural fingerprinting by mass spectrometry
  Prof F. Sobott, Dr E Paci, Dr J.H. Tomlinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recombinant proteins are playing an ever-increasing role as therapeutics and reagents. High-affinity binding candidates can be produced in a high-throughput manner through the process of selection and evolution from large libraries.
