  Proteomic approach to understand mitochondrial quality control under normal and stress conditions
  Dr H Lu, Prof S Hubbard
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Defects in protein quality control lead to the accumulation of misfolded and damaged proteins, which play an important role in many diseases (e.g.
  Cell cycle regulation in Arabidopsis
  Prof L Bogre
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plant growth is tightly controlled by environmental factors. We investigate how these stress and growth stimulatory factors regulate plant growth and cell cycle.
  Discovery of peptide ligands of endoplasmic reticulum (ER) chaperone ERp44 that counter metabolic syndrome
  Prof A Mitra
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are seeking a well-qualified and highly motivated candidate for the position of a doctoral student to carry out a peptide-based drug-design project involving a multi-disciplinary approach.
  Mitochondrial protein folding and diseases
  Prof L-Y Lian, Dr D Criddle
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many diseases, including cancer and neurological disease, stem from mitochondrial dysfunctions often triggered by sudden elevation of agents such as calcium and reactive oxygen species.
  Chromatin remodelling in health and disease: determining the role of ATRX in the maintenance of chromatin and how mutations perturb disparate nuclear nuclear processes and lead to human disease
  Dr R Gibbons, Prof D Higgs
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

It has become apparent that the regulation of chromatin structure is of paramount importance in a wide variety of fundamental nuclear processes including gene expression, DNA replication, repair and recombination.
  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.
  Dissecting cell complexity using super-resolution microscopy, one molecule at a time
  Research Group: Physics of Life - Biological Physics and Biophysics
  Prof M Leake, Prof A J Wilkinson
Application Deadline: 1 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The stress response of sporulation in bacteria is a fantastically system for studying biophysics processes of emergent complexity.
  Single-molecule imaging in live cell to study gene geography and the role of DNA biophysics in regulating genes
  Research Group: Physics of Life - Biological Physics and Biophysics
  Prof M Leake, Prof C Dorman
Application Deadline: 1 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Your project will address the key question of what is the importance of the physical location of genes in determining their state of activity.
  The long and winding roads of the cell
  Research Group: Physics of Life - Biological Physics and Biophysics
  Prof M Leake, Dr C MacDonald
Application Deadline: 1 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Intracellular membrane trafficking is essential for many cellular processes and its impairment leads to over 80 major human diseases.
