  Genome mining of novel antimicrobial natural products from new bacterial strains
  Dr H Deng, Prof M Jaspars
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is rising to dangerously high levels in all parts of the world. In Europe alone, drug-resistant bacteria are estimated to cause 25,000 deaths annually and cost more than US$1.5 billion every year in healthcare expenses and productivity losses.
  Functions of cyclin-dependent kinase 11 (CDK11) in regulation of gene expression
  Dr D Bla┼żek, Assoc Prof Z Zdráhal, Dr P Alexiou
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

CDK11 is ubiquitously expressed in all tissues and the CDK11 null mouse is lethal at an early stage of development indicating an important role for Cdk11 in the adult as well as during development.
  Impact of alternative mRNA splicing on the human proteome
  Dr V Wickramasinghe, Prof R. Pearson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Alternative splicing of RNA transcripts has emerged as a key mechanism for enabling biological complexity within the human genome.
  Development of heterocyclic pharmacophores using diversity-oriented synthesis
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr K Pors, Prof L Patterson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Diversity-oriented synthesis (DOS) is a modern chemical tool, which aims to synthesise small molecules that cover new chemical space with the possibility of finding unexplored biological targets or pathways that may be important for disease progression.
  The mechanism of regulation of protein synthesis via eIF2 molecular complexes
  Dr A Roseman, Prof G D Pavitt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Control of protein synthesis is critical for normal metabolism, development and responses to stress. One major pathway is called the integrated stress response (ISR) and centres on translational control of the general protein synthesis factor eIF2B via the phosphorylation of eIF2 [1,2].
  CRISPR-Cas9 genome editing and super-resolved live cell imaging to study the extracellular microenvironment at the single molecule level
  Dr A Piccinini, Prof D Heery
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The three-dimensional space around and between mammalian cells is filled with a complex network of extracellular matrix (ECM) molecules, which instruct fundamental processes such as cell survival, differentiation and migration, in addition to providing structural support for cells.
  Bioinformatics studies of protein structures, functions and their interactions
  Dr L J McGuffin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The computational study of protein structures, functions and their interactions is fundamental to our understanding of disease.
  Hijacking of host cellular functions and metabolism in MRSA pathogenesis
  Dr M Letek, Dr V Behrends, Dr Y Calle
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited from potential PhD candidates to work at the Department of Life Sciences, University of Roehampton, supervised by Dr Michal Letek, Dr Volker Behrends, and Dr Yolanda Calle-Patino.
  Functional analysis of novel genes important in the physiology and pathogenesis of the human pathogen Campylobacter jejuni
  Prof D J Kelly
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Campylobacter jejuni and E. coli are the commonest cause of human bacterial gastroenteritis worldwide. Although pathogenic in humans, C.
  Uncovering the mechanisms leading to reduced extracellular vesicle production and secretion in C9orf72-related MND pathology
  Dr L Ferraiuolo, Dr E Seward
Application Deadline: 2 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are being invited for a 3.5-year Basic Neuroscience PhD Studentship, starting in October 2019.
