Wellcome Trust Graduate programme in Cellular Structural Biology

 . The University of Oxford, Diamond Light Source and the Rosalind Franklin Institute, in conjunction with the Wellcome Trust, offers a four-year graduate programme in Cellular Structural Biology, leading to the PhD degree. Read more

Using structural biology to understand membrane proteins important in health and disease

  Research Group: Midlands Integrative Biosciences Training Partnership (MIBTP)
Membrane transporters and channels allow molecules and ions to cross cell membranes. Dysregulation of the proteins can lead to disease and inhibition of the proteins by pharmaceuticals can be exploited for drug discovery. Read more

Genetic and structural analysis of pilin-associated adhesins of Neisseria

Type IV pili are major adhesins of many bacterial organisms. Adhesion by these structures is usually mediated by adhesin proteins located at the tip of a pilus that can extend a significant distance from the bacterial surface. Read more

Cryo-electron microscopy of plant clathrin cages

  Research Group: Midlands Integrative Biosciences Training Partnership (MIBTP)
Endocytosis via clathrin coated vesicles is a process fundamental to eukaryotic cell health and vitality, and the core proteins as well as the beautiful geometry of clathrin cages are highly conserved. Read more

Cryo-electron microscopy of the hormone transport protein AUX1

  Research Group: Midlands Integrative Biosciences Training Partnership (MIBTP)
Biology background. Auxin signalling is quintessentially important for higher plant life and auxin transport proteins establish gradients of this hormone to help determine plant form and size. Read more

Motor proteins: from structural biology to human disease

Dynein and kinesin are families of motor proteins that use ATP hydrolysis to transport cellular components and signalling molecules along the microtubule cytoskeleton. Read more

EASTBIO The molecular structure and function of the synaptonemal complex in crop meiosis

  Research Group: Institute of Cell Biology
In meiosis, haploid germ cells are formed through the segregation of homologous chromosomes following their genetic exchange by crossing over. Read more

Neurodegenerative disorders

We are currently looking for a PhD candidate to work on the following projects. Understanding enzymes linked to neurodegeneration and antiviral defence. Read more

MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Structural and mechanistic studies of fibroblast growth factor receptor signalling

We have identified a previously undiscovered ‘signal switching’ mechanism used by a branch of the receptor tyrosine kinase (RTK) family – fibroblast growth factor receptors (FGFRs) – that are important in early development but also oncogenic in a range of cancers. Read more

Towards new drugs and diagnostics for tuberculosis: Elucidating and exploiting essential pathways in the Mycobacterium tuberculosis pathogen

  Research Group: Midlands Integrative Biosciences Training Partnership (MIBTP)
Tuberculosis (TB) is a major global health challenge. TB is the leading cause of death worldwide from a single bacterial pathogen killing more people than HIV and malaria combined. Read more
