  Membrane protein misfolding and disease: quality control pathways
  Dr L Swanton, Prof P Woodman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Misfolded proteins represent a continuous threat to cell viability, and if allowed to accumulate, can disrupt cellular function and induce cell death.
  Investigating the role of membrane transporters in early development
  Research Group: Chromatin & Development
  Dr M Percharde, Dr L Fets
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is a joint project between the Chromatin and Development and the Drug Transport and Tumour Metabolism groups within the MRC LMS.
  Self-association of the Alzheimer’s peptide Aβ on membrane surfaces
  Prof M P Williamson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Alzheimer’s disease is a neurodegenerative disease that is particularly common amongst the elderly. It accounts for about 65% of all cases of dementia, and affects about 6% of people over 65, rising to 50% of people over 85.
  Proteomics to determine how defects in membrane trafficking within the secretory pathway cause human disease
  Prof M Lowe, Prof V Allan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Work in the Lowe laboratory is aimed at deciphering the molecular mechanisms that control membrane trafficking within cells. A major focus of our work is the trafficking of proteins to and through the Golgi apparatus, which lies at the heart of the secretory pathway.
  Pathophysiology of red cell membrane permeability
  Dr J Gibson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our project investigates how red cell membrane permeability is altered in pathophysiological states.
  Advancing our understanding of fundamental cellular processes by investigating membrane contact sites.
  Dr P Pryor, Dr C G Baumann
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

An emerging, exciting area of research is that of membrane contact site (MCS) biology.
  Imaging viruses and cells by electron cryomicroscopy (cryoEM)
  Dr P Rosenthal
Application Deadline: 12 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 4-year PhD studentship is offered in Dr Peter Rosenthal’s Group based at the Francis Crick Institute (the Crick). Our group studies the architecture of large protein assemblies in order to understand basic molecular mechanisms that control protein and membrane traffic in the cell and in virus infection.
  Physical mechanisms of evolution of cell trafficking
  Dr A Saric
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Complex eukaryotic cells first appeared on earth over a billion years ago. Such cells are built out of physical compartments separated from each other by membrane boundaries.
  Mechanistic dissection of interplay between membrane traffic and apoptosisby mutations in the endosomal sorting regulatory protein Vps45.
  Prof N Bryant, Dr C MacDonald
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Eukaryotic cells have to coordinate a large number of cellular processes in. order to function properly. Understanding how this is achieved is critical for.
  A mechanistic understanding of circadian clock-dependent regulation of the secretory pathway
  Prof K E Kadler, Dr Q-J Meng, Dr J Swift
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The protein secretory pathway comprises a series of membranous compartments and transport vesicles that cells use to synthesise, post-translationally modify, and move proteins for delivery to the plasma membrane or for secretion to the extracellular matrix.
