  (BBSRC DTP) Electron Paramagnetic Resonance Pulsed Dipolar Spectroscopy for Structural Biology
  Dr A Bowen, Dr S Hay, Dr M Shanmugam
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Electron Paramagnetic Resonance is a rapidly expanding suit of techniques used for the study of complex (bio)molecules that possess spin-active moieties with unaired electrons.
  Structural biology of the intrinsically disordered protein SH2B1
  Prof M P Williamson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Signalling between the outside of the cell and the inside uses a complicated network of interacting systems. One common signalling mechanism uses receptor tyrosine kinases.
  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.
  (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.
  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.
  Bioengineering of bacterial CO2-concentrating system for improved photosynthesis
  Prof LN Liu, Dr D Canniffe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The single-cell photosynthetic bacteria, cyanobacteria, account for over 25% of global carbon fixation, thanks for their powerful CO2-concentrating machinery.
  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.
  *EASTBIO* Dissecting the structure and function of a highly unusual bacteriophage DNA ligase
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr S MacNeill
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BBSRC Thematic Group. Frontier Bioscience. In all forms of life, DNA ligase enzymes are essential for joining strands of DNA when new DNA is being made or when damaged DNA is being repaired.
