  (BBSRC DTP) Understanding structure and function of the mechanosensors talin and vinculin
  Dr C Ballestrem, Prof C Baldock, Dr A Roseman
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ability of cells to sense biochemical and mechanical properties of their extracellular matrix (ECM) environment is critical for the development of functional tissue.
  Single-molecule analysis of structure and function of human transcription complexes using DNA origami nano-robots
  Research Group: Structural Biology and Molecular Enzymology
  Dr A Revyakin, Prof D Panne
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

PhD Type

DNA origami is a rapidly evolving area of nanotechnology in which self-assembly properties of the DNA double helix are harnessed to build three-dimensional structures on the dimensional scale of ~50 nm.
  Exploiting advanced methods for protein structure prediction
  Dr D J Rigden, Dr R Keegan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Protein structural information is crucial for an understanding of protein function and evolution. Currently, there is only experimental data for a tiny fraction of the protein universe.
  SOD1 The Key protein for finding a cure for familial Motor Neurone Disease
  Dr S Antonyuk, Prof S Hasnain
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Motor neurone disease is a progressive, fatal neurological disorder with no known cure. It is characterised by selective loss of motor neurons in the spinal cord and cortex.

PhD Type

Understanding mechanical properties and performance of various biological materials and tissues and their responses to different loading and environmental conditions is becoming increasingly important for development of new medical procedures and devices.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Drug discovery to control C. difficile infections by targeting sporulation
  Dr P Salgado, Dr J Hubbard
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Interested in a PhD studying antibiotic resistant bacteria and explore new ways to treat drug-resistant infections? In this PhD, you will use a range of biochemistry, biophysical and structural techniques, together with molecular biology, genetics, and microbiology approached to develop new therapeutics targeting C.
  Data-driven engineering of novel drugs by machine-learning-derived understanding of the molecular basis for drug action
  Dr I Styles, Prof D Veprintsev
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to pave the way for AI-based data-driven drug “engineering” that will shape a new generation of drugs that are more efficacious and have fewer side-effects.
