  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Nanoinjection: a novel single molecule technique to study alpha-synuclein amyloid toxicity inside neurons
  Dr E W Hewitt, Dr P Actis, Prof S E Radford
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Aims. The aim of this project is to use nanoinjection to perform the quantitative delivery of alpha-synuclein fibrils or oligomers into the cytoplasm of neurons and then determine how many of each is required to induce cellular stress and death.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Understanding zinc-dependent regulation of TRPC5 channels and its role in diabetes
  Dr R.S. Bon, Dr S Muench, Dr P Sukumar
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

TRPC5 ion channels are emerging drug targets, for example for CNS disorders, renal disease, cancer and cardiovascular disease (Cells 2018, 7, pii.
  Understanding how intrinsic disorder drives the formation of fuzzy protein complexes and tunes protein function
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr S Kepinski, Dr A Zhuravleva, Prof N A Ranson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Intrinsically disordered protein regions lack stable structure and instead move stochastically through an ensemble of conformations.
  Developing new approaches to study V-ATPase mechanism and inhibition
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr S Muench, Dr R.F. Thompson, Dr M A Harrison
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Membrane proteins are the targets for over 60% of current therapeutics and are essential for cell survival and disease progression, however our current understanding of their structure and mechanism lags behind their soluble counterparts.
  Epigenetic temperature sensing in plants
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Prof B H Davies, Prof A Whitehouse, Dr J Aspden
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The changing climate is already having a dramatic effect on the growth and development of the plants that support our entire civilisation.
  Improving the isolation of biologics using molecular modeling and bioinformatics
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr D Tomlinson, Dr E Paci, Prof J Houwing-Duistermaat
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

PhD Type

with Prof. Jeanine Houwing-Duistermaat. The field of biotechnology has exploded over the past decade with many antibody-based therapeutics dominating the top-ten best selling drugs worldwide.
  Nanoinjection: a single molecule platform for the quantitative and targeted delivery of proteins into cells for functional analysis
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr E W Hewitt, Dr P Actis, Prof S E Radford
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Interested in amyloid disorders such as Parkinson’s and Huntington’s. Want to work with cutting edge technology in a multidisciplinary team.
  Structural and functional studies on ciliary proteins required for vision
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Prof C A Johnson, Dr J.J.B. Cockburn, Dr R.F. Thompson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Rod and cone photoreceptor cells in the retina detect light, allowing us to see. When specialised cellular structures in photoreceptors are disrupted, this is a major cause of childhood and adult-onset blindness.
  Structure and composition of specialised ribosomes
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr J Fontana, Dr J Aspden, Prof F. Sobott
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Until recently it was thought that all ribosomes were the same, but substantial new evidence has revealed that ribosome heterogeneity provides an additional level of translational control.
  Understanding molecular motors through imaging and modelling
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr SA Harris, Prof M Peckham, Dr O.G. Harlen
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Dimeric coiled coils are formed by two alpha helices that wrap around each other to bury hydrophobic residues. They are found widely throughout the proteome, and have important mechanical roles in proteins.
