  Midlands Integrative Biosciences Training Partnership (MIBTP) Funded PhD Studentships

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Midlands Integrative Biosciences Training Partnership (MIBTP) is a BBSRC-funded doctoral training partnership between five research-intensive universities.
  Genetic, transcriptomic and phenotypic analyses of cells of the blood vessel wall for understanding cardiovascular disease
  Prof S Ye
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This studentship will align with the strategic priorities of the Leicester British Heart Foundation Accelerator Award. Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is one of the main causes of death and disability in the UK and many other countries.
  Discovery and modelling of common molecular mechanisms disrupting hearing in genetic mutations associated with hearing loss
  Prof I D Forsythe, Dr A Lecchini-Visintini
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Objectives. Determine the cellular and molecular changes in the auditory brainstem of mice carrying genetic mutations associated with hearing loss and language development and use modelling to evaluate common mechanisms.
  Application of advanced spectroscopic techniques to monitor real-time transformations in aerosolized bovine tuberculosis bacteria
  Dr N Garton, Dr A Hudson
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mycobacterium bovis is the causative agent of bovine tuberculosis (bTB), a devastating disease affecting global cattle populations.
  Protein kinases and nitric oxide in the stealthy survival of Mycobacterium tuberculosis
  Dr G Mukamolova, Dr H O’Hare
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tuberculosis remains a major global threat as it affects humans and production animals. Mycobacterium tuberculosis and Mycobacterium bovis, the causative agents of tuberculosis in human and animals, are highly successful pathogens which have sophisticated mechanisms for adaptation to hostile conditions.
  Characterising the function of PRPF40 in spliceosome assembly at the single molecule level
  Dr O V Makarova, Prof I C Eperon
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

PhD Start date. September 2020. Most of genes in eukaryotes contain introns that are recognised and spliced out by a macromolecular complex, the spliceosome.
  Control of gene expression by RNA-binding proteins
  Prof I C Eperon
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

PhD Start date. September 2020. RNA-binding proteins regulate the selection of splice sites in RNA.
  Cryo-Electron Microscopy of Histone Deacetylase Complexes
  Prof J Schwabe, Dr S Cowley
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Histone deacetylase complexes play a role in many cellular processes, such as cancer, cell cycle progression and DNA repair. Investigating how these HDAC complexes act to control gene expression and their interactions with other proteins should lead to an understanding of their influence in the cell.
  Defining how reactive small molecules in cells regulate the oncogenic KRAS.G12C GTPase
  Dr R Hopkinson, Dr K Tanaka
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

PhD Start date. September 2020. The KRAS gene are among the most mutated genes in cancer cells. KRAS.G12C (glycine at position 12 to cysteine), which is found in about 12% of all KRAS-mutated cancers, has attracted much attention as the cysteine residue is highly reactive.
  Enzyme mechanism through advanced techniques
  Dr P C E Moody
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This studentship is for up to 4 years and supported by a Royal Society Wolfson Fellowship. “Traditional” protein X-ray crystallography has contributed enormously to our understanding of enzyme mechanisms.
