  Investigating the binding of MeCP2 on chromatin
  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
  Dr M Wilson, Prof A P Bird
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

MeCP2 is a nuclear protein that binds to methylated DNA in the genome. It is highly abundant in neurons and mutations in the MECP2 gene cause the severe X-linked autism spectrum disorder Rett syndrome.
  Designing and evolving plastic-degrading enzymes for new function
  Dr B Lichtenstein, Prof J McGeehan, Dr S Robson
Application Deadline: 7 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a fully-funded four year PhD studentship to commence in October 2020. The PhD will be based at the University’s Centre for Enzyme Innovation (CEI), and will be supervised by Dr Bruce Lichtenstein, Prof.
  Detection in cells of protein interactions on pre-mRNA during the regulation of splicing
  Prof I C Eperon, Dr S Cowley
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the biggest challenges in molecular biology is presented by the selection of sites for RNA splicing. We cannot overstate its importance or apparent complexity.
  IMPRS "From Molecules To Organisms”: Next application opens January 2020

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 chemistry and biophysics of phosphoryl transfer enzymes
  Prof J Waltho, Dr A Almond
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the most remarkable features of the chemistry of living organisms is the evolutionary utilisation of phosphate esters to provide biopolymers that encode genetic information, deliver temporal protein regulation, generate and distribute free energy throughout the cell, and to provide a ubiquitous handle for metabolic intermediates.
  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.
  Eastbio PhD Programme: Targeting the MYCBP2 E3 ubiquitin ligase with small molecules
  Prof A Ciulli, Dr S Virdee
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 4 year PhD project is part of a competition funded by EASTBIO BBSRC Doctoral Training Partnership http://www.eastscotbiodtp.ac.uk/how-apply-0.
  MSc by Research Programme: Bringing proteins together with small molecules
  Prof A Ciulli
Application Deadline: 16 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This course allows you to work alongside our world renowned experts from the School of Life Sciences and gain a ’real research’ experience.
  Investigating metalloprotein mechanism using ‘physiological’ X-ray absorption spectroscopy
  Dr P Ash
Application Deadline: 4 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A wide variety of metalloproteins, utilising a range of earth-abundant metals, are vital to many biological processes. Changes in metal-based oxidation state are critical to the function of metalloproteins with diverse roles in electron transfer and redox catalysis.
