  Transport of essential nutrients across the outer membrane of a bacterial pathogen
  Dr M Thomas
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gram-negative bacteria possess a second membrane, the outer membrane (OM), that serves as an additional line of defence against noxious agents, including antibiotics.
  Molecular analysis of neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) in rheumatoid arthritis
  Dr HL Wright, Prof RJ Moots
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) kill pathogens via the release of chromatin and anti-microbial granule enzymes in an extracellular mesh or “net”.
  Bacterial iron uptake pathways as targets for the development of novel antimicrobials
  Dr M Thomas
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance is an ever increasing problem. Presently it is estimated to be responsible for 700,000 deaths p.a. and it is predicted that this figure will rise to 10 million by 2050.
  The role of integrins in muscle stem cell function (MAYERU20DTP)
  Prof U Mayer, Prof A E Munsterberg
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Men and women lose 50% of their skeletal muscle mass in later life through a process called age-related sarcopenia, characterised by a combined loss of muscle mass, endurance and strength.
  Elucidating the molecular function of SNAP29 a gene mutated in CEDNIK syndrome
  Dr A Peden
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

CEDNIK (cerebral dysgenesis, neuropathy, ichthyosis and keratoderma) syndrome is a rare fatal disease caused by the loss of SNAP29.

  The functions of the Class II Pi3-kinase signals in vivo
  Dr L MacDougall, Dr M Baron
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Phosphoinositide lipids (PIPs) play critical roles in development and the homeostasis of adult tissues and their dysfunction has been linked to major human diseases such as cancer, diabetes, myopathies and neuropathies.
  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…
  Rhomboid-like proteins and the cell biology of signalling
  Prof M Freeman
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The main questions we study are what cellular mechanisms regulate signalling between animal cells, and how does that signalling control biological functions like physiology, development and disease? Our current focus recently is the rhomboid-like superfamily of proteins.
