  The mechanism of gating and transport of pentameric Magnesium ion channels
  Dr S M Prince, Prof R Ford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Magnesium ions are a co-factor in many important biological processes particularly because of the requirement for Mg2+ in the hydrolysis of Adenosine tri-phosphate, the ubiquitous cellular energy source.
  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.
  PhD Position in Cryo Electron Microscopy of Rhodopsin Cyclases
  Prof P Wendler
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Eukaryotic rhodopsin guanylyl cyclases (RhGC) and rhodopsin phosphodiesterases (RhPDE) combine a rhodopsin photoreceptor module with an enzymatic unit that catalyzes the conversion of cyclic nucleotides to the corresponding 5’-phosphate nucleotide or vice versa.
  (BBSRC DTP CASE) Design of a light-driven biocatalyst
  Prof D Leys, Dr S Hay
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Illumination is able to unlock a wide range of photochemical reactions, but light is rarely used by living organisms. In fact, to date only three light dependent enzymes have been described in detail.
  (BBSRC DTP) Reductive dehalogenation and detoxification of pollutants
  Prof D Leys, Dr S Hay, Prof A Munro
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many of the key pollutants released into the environment are halogenated organic molecules, containing at least one or more chloride or bromide atoms.
  China Scholarship Council - Structural and membrane biology of polarized trafficking
  Dr D H Murray, Dr J Januschke
Application Deadline: 15 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The School of Life Sciences at the University of Dundee, joint with the China Scholarship Council (CSC), is proud to be able to offer a scholarship programme for postgraduate research students.
  EASTBIO Defining the structural basis of Tdp1-dependent DNA repair
  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
  Dr J Richardson, Dr H Interthal
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

DNA topoisomerases are described as “magicians of the DNA world”. They allow DNA strands and double helices to “pass through each other” thereby resolving topological strain created during DNA replication and transcription.
  Fostering development of ‘smart’, responsive therapeutics against cancer-related microRNAs.
  Dr E Bichenkova, Prof D Clarke, Dr H Aojula
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Short functional non-coding microRNAs are implicated in many types of cancer, and thus can be used as biological targets for development of more selective and powerful anticancer therapies.
  Department of Biochemistry: 3- and 4-year PhD/DPhil Studentships

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Department of Biochemistry conducts interdisciplinary research applying cutting-edge techniques in bionanotechnology, biophysics, computational biology…
  Molecular mechanisms of herpesviral infection
  Dr A Golovanov
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Herpes viruses are known to cause a wide range of human diseases, ranging from simple cold sores to cancer, Kaposi Sarcoma. Kaposi Sarcoma, for example, is a type of cancer which affects immunocompromised patients and is endemic in Africa, where it is linked with the spread of HIV infection and AIDS.
