  MSc by Research Programme: How are SUMO substrates selected for modification
  Prof R Hay
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.
  Investigate a novel, unexplored link between WNT signalling and regulators of cell migration in cancer progression using CRISPR-Cas9 and advanced live cell imaging.
  Dr M Krause
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer is a devastating disease. more than one in three people in the UK will develop cancer in their lifetime. WNT signalling is a key pathway controlling morphogenesis in embryos and it has been shown that perturbations of this pathway promote cancer progression.
  Structure based design of angiotensin-converting enzyme (from Anopheles gambiae) inhibitors as mosquitocides
  Prof K R Acharya
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The mosquitoes of the Anopheles and Aedes genus are some of the most deadly insects to humans because of their effectiveness as vectors of malaria and a range of arboviruses, including yellow fever, dengue, chikungunya, West Nile and zika.
  Adjuvant therapies for mupirocin-resistant bacteria
  Dr B Bonev, Dr A Cockayne
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Multi-drug resistant Staphylococcus aureus has been able to adapt constantly to therapeutic use of antibiotics and remains an important source of clinical complications, morbidity and mortality.
  PhD studentship in Engineering/Physics/Neuroscience/Medicine/Maths to work on Imaging brain and nerve function with Electrical Impedance Tomography.
  Prof D Holder, Dr K aristovich
Application Deadline: 1 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Electrical Impedance Tomography is a new medical imaging method which enables images of the internal electrical impedance of a subject to be produced with arrays or external electrodes.
  Developing chemical probes to distinguish CDK4-cyclin D
  Prof J Endicott
Application Deadline: 15 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Number of awards. 1. Start date and duration. October 2020 for four years. Overview. CDK4/6 inhibitors have been approved to treat hormone responsive/HER2 negative breast cancer.
  Deciphering the neural code of the hippocampus
  Dr M Montemurro, Dr J Gigg
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The brain processes and stores information about our lives and the world that surrounds us. At the neural scale, information is encoded through the precise timing of activity across populations of neurons.
  How do antibiotics kill bacteria?
  Prof S J Foster
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite being a lynchpin of modern healthcare we still do not understand how cell wall active antibiotics such as penicillin and vancomycin kill growing bacteria, although several theories have been proposed.
  Structural and dynamical characterisation of therapeutic protein formulations by mass spectrometry and simulation
  Prof P Dalby
Application Deadline: 15 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antibody-based therapeutics and diagnostics are major breakthrough applications of proteins. Getting them to patients is often challenging due to their poor stability and tendency to aggregate.
  PhD Studentship Opportunity in quantum and drugs: spin dynamics in an antibiotic
  Prof J J Mcfadden, Dr SS Turner
Application Deadline: 19 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Spin physics, the science that describes how electron spin may be coupled through ‘spooky action at a distance’ or quantum entanglement.
  Protein Misfolding and the Molecular Basis of Alzheimer’s Disease
  Dr J Viles
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. World-wide one in three people over the age of 65 will die with Alzheimer’s Disease (AD). The disease is characterised by deposits of amyloid plaques and fibrils of amyloid-beta peptide (Ab) are their main constituent.
  High-throughput discovery of novel antibiotics using synthetic microbiology
  Dr R Draheim
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a frequent problem in the treatment of disease caused by several clinical bacterial pathogens. In the European Union, antibiotic-resistant infections kill nearly 25,000 patients and represent a total expenditure of £1.5 billion per year.
  PhD Studentship Opportunity in Quantum and drugs: spin dynamics in an antibiotic (theory)
  Dr B Howlin, Prof J J Mcfadden
Application Deadline: 19 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Spin physics, the science that describes how electron spin may be coupled through ‘spooky action at a distance’ or quantum entanglement.
  Using single molecule spectroscopy to determine the drivers of conformational change in protein kinases
  Dr C Dodson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Protein kinases are central to many cellular processes (eg cell division and the response to external signals) and are current drug targets in cancer, cardiac and inflammatory disease.
  Computer Simulations of Biological Macromolecules
  Research Group: Molecular and Nanoscale Phsyics
  Dr SA Harris
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Computational models are invaluable for visualisation in molecular biology, as they employ our best quantitative physical understanding of biomolecules and their interactions to predict their dynamics, which is often missing from biophysical experiments.
  Chemical reaction to mechanical motion towards the physio-chemical model of heart cells.
  Dr Y Hayashi, Dr Z Wang, Dr N Vasudevan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Living systems are complex, and are based on the basic building blocks of genes, proteins, chemical reactions, and physical forces.
  Modelling and understanding of biological systems, using physics as a tool
  Dr Y Hayashi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Living systems are complex, and are based on the basic building blocks of genes, proteins, chemical reactions, and physical forces.
  Understanding Movement and Mechanism in Molecuar Machines (MACMILLANF2U20SF)
  Dr F MacMillan
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We study the architecture and functional dynamics of membrane proteins, especially many medically relevant membrane transport systems.
  Is epigenetic information is exchanged between sister chromatids to restore chromatin structure and maintain epigenetic information after DNA replication?
  Dr N Francis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

DNA in eukaryotic cells is organized into chromatin. Far from being an inert packing material, chromatin is a rich source of information for gene regulation.
