  UCL-Birkbeck MRC Doctoral Training Programme across 4 strategic themes

Funding Type

PhD Type

The UCL-Birkbeck MRC Doctoral Training Programme provides state-of-the-art PhD training across four strategic themes. Fundamental mechanisms of disease.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Nanoinjection: a novel single molecule technique to study alpha-synuclein amyloid toxicity inside neurons
  Dr E W Hewitt, Dr P Actis, Prof S E Radford
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Aims. The aim of this project is to use nanoinjection to perform the quantitative delivery of alpha-synuclein fibrils or oligomers into the cytoplasm of neurons and then determine how many of each is required to induce cellular stress and death.
  Structure and function of enzyme complexes involved in post-transcriptional gene regulation
  Dr G S Winkler
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many proteins in human cells function as part of high molecular weight multi-subunit assemblies. The structure and function of such large molecular machines is often difficult to characterise due to their complexity, low abundance and structural dynamics.
  Protein engineering enzymes for Industry
  Prof K A Watson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are interested in key features of protein sequence - structure - function relationship, and how this information can be translated to health.
  Characterisaton of sequence-dependent phosphohistidine phosphatases
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr M E Webb, Prof R.W. Bayliss, Dr M Wright
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Phosphohistidine is an ubiquitous modification in bacterial cell signaling, however its function in eukaryotic cells has not been defined.
  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.
  Fully Funded Five Year PhD Fellowships in the Sciences

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fully Funded Five Year PhD Fellowships in the Sciences. The Sciences at the Graduate Center. The Graduate Center, CUNY PhD in the sciences is unique in that it is a consortium of faculty drawn primarily from CUNY campuses across the five boroughs of New York City.
  (BBSRC DTP CASE) Exploitation of P450 BM3 variants for production of valuable drug metabolites
  Prof A Munro, Prof D Leys
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have recommended that human drug metabolites (as well as their parent drugs) should be subject to testing for safety/toxicity.
  (BBSRC DTP) Inhibition of SR protein kinase 1 with designer peptides
  Dr A Golovanov, Dr A Almond
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Protein-protein interactions (PPIs) have fundamental biological importance, and using inhibitors to block their biological networks in a pathway-defined manner is a major pharmaceutical goal.
  Dissecting the tubulin diversity: understanding how tubulin isotypes regulate microtubule networks
  Dr J Ti
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

α/β-tubulin heterodimers form dynamic polymers, microtubules, that are central to cellular processes, such as cell division, cell migration, and organelle transportation.
