  Why do proteins aggregate under flow?
  Dr D Brockwell, Prof S E Radford
Application Deadline: 15 March 2019
The function and stability of proteins are intimately linked to their environment and consequently, changes in environmental factors such as pH can trigger conformational changes that in turn modulate protein function.
  Posttranslational modifications of the tumor suppressor PTCH1: characterisation and functional significance
  Dr N.A. Riobo-Del Galdo, Prof R.W. Bayliss
Application Deadline: 10 March 2019
PTCH1, the receptor of the Hedgehog family of proteins and a well-characterised tumor suppressor, is a 12-transmembrane protein with long intracellular N- and C-termini (1).
  Rational design and production of glyco-peptidic inhibitors of pathogens’ adhesion to host cells.
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Dr E Paci, Prof W B Turnbull
Application Deadline: 30 September 2019
The ability of protein molecules to stick to cells is crucial for life and disease. The project is based on a novel concept to design adhesive molecules based on multivalence and entropic stabilisation.
  Structural biology of membrane proteins
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Dr C Pliotas
Application Deadline: 15 March 2019
Research in the Pliotas group focuses on the investigation of molecular mechanisms which underlie the structure and function of integral membrane proteins, in particular ion channels and transporters.
  Pattern Formation (Applied Nonlinear Dynamics): understanding the formation and stability of complex patterns such as quasipatterns, spatio-temporal chaos or turbulent spirals
  Prof A M Rucklidge
Applications accepted all year round
Regular patterns, such as stripes, squares and hexagons, are ubiquitous in nature, and their formation and stability are governed by the intricate and complex interactions of symmetry and nonlinearity.
  Leeds/AstraZeneca CASE: Structural mechanisms of fibroblast growth factor receptor signalling at the membrane interface
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Prof A.L. Breeze, Prof F. Sobott
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
Fibroblast growth factor receptors (FGFRs) are receptor tyrosine kinases that play key roles in embryo development, tissue remodelling, wound healing, and cancer.
  An integrated approach to the study of cellular interactions with amyloid
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Dr E W Hewitt, Prof S E Radford
Applications accepted all year round
The formation of insoluble amyloid fibrils is associated with a spectrum of human disorders, the amyloidoses, which include Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, type 2 diabetes and dialysis related amyloidosis (DRA).
  How human teeth form and how that process fails in the inherited condition amelogenesis imperfecta
  Prof C Inglehearn
Applications accepted all year round
Amelogenesis is the process of enamel formation and is essential for the development of functional teeth. Amelogenesis imperfecta (AI) is a failure of that process.
  The genetic basis of cognitive impairment in intellectual disability and schizophrenia
  Prof C Inglehearn, Dr M Ali
Applications accepted all year round
Schizophrenia is a chronic mental health condition affecting 1% of human populations, with symptoms that include visual and auditory hallucinations, delusions and disordered thought, leading to disruption of the sense of self.
  WRDTP ESRC PhD Studentships 2019/20
 . The White Rose Social Sciences Doctoral Training Partnership (WRDTP), accredited by the Economic and Social Research Council in 2016, is a collaboration across the social sciences at the Universities of Leeds, Sheffield, York, Bradford, Sheffield Hallam, Hull, and Manchester Metropolitan.
