  Development of Novel Crystallization Methods for Integral Membrane Proteins
  Dr G Patchornik
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our research is focused on one of the major barriers in Structural biology. growing high quality three dimensional (3D) crystals of integral membrane proteins for structural analysis.
  Mechanism of Bacterial Resistance to Antimicrobial Peptides
  Prof Mibel Aguilar
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antibiotic resistance continues to emerge and intensify.
  Sorting old from new: protein assembly and turnover in the Gram-negative outer membrane
  Dr C G Baumann, Dr M A Fascione
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gram-negative bacteria have evolved to survive in diverse ecological niches. Some species are pathogenic, while others colonise the mammalian gut and aid food digestion.
  Structural and Biophysical Characterisation of Novel Membrane Protein Ion Channels (Chinese candidates / China mainland only)
  Research Group: School of Biomedical Sciences
  Dr C Pliotas
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research in the Pliotas group (https://www.pliotasgroup.org/) focuses on the investigation of molecular mechanisms which underlie the structure and function of integral membrane proteins, in particular ion channels.
  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.
  Physical mechanisms of evolution of cell trafficking
  Dr A Saric
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Complex eukaryotic cells first appeared on earth over a billion years ago. Such cells are built out of physical compartments separated from each other by membrane boundaries.
  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.
  GW4 BioMed MRC DTP PhD studentship: Using nanotechnology, structural biology and genome editing to study how fungal receptors promote the spread of lethal diseases
  Dr N Brown
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the ‘GW4 BioMed MRC Doctoral Training Partnership’ which is offering up to 18 studentships for entry in September 2020.
  Structure-function relationships governing polyphenol bioactivity with respect to plasma membranes
  Prof R A Frazier, Dr R Green
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to investigate polyphenol binding to lipid membrane surfaces with a view to understanding how polyphenol structure and aggregation within the gastrointestinal tract (GIT) affects the bioavailability of these nutraceuticals.
  Investigating the role of the mechanosensor channel Piezo1 in human disease
  Dr K Erdmann
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Piezo proteins are ion channels that are gated by mechanical stimuli like stretch or shear stress. In mammalians there are two Piezo isoforms (Piezo1 and Piezo2) with largely different expression pattern.
