  Genotype-to-structure: analysis of the glycosylation of the flagella of Campylobacter jejuni, a major cause of food-borne gastroenteritis
  Dr C D Bayliss, Prof J Ketley
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Campylobacter jejuni is the major causative agent of foodborne gastroenteritis across Europe. Contaminated chicken meat is the main source of infections and hence control of this pathogen is critical to food security in the poultry industry.
  PhD Studentship: Modelling Polymeric Materials in Spontaneously Flowing Biofluids
  Prof T Ala-Nissila
Application Deadline: 1 February 2019
Reference number. TAN/MA/2018. Start date of studentship. 1st April 2019. Closing date of advert. 1th February 2019. Supervisors.
  Exploring the pathogenic roles of Rab GTPases in models of taupathy
  Prof F Giorgini, Prof C P Kyriacou
Application Deadline: 28 January 2019
Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common neurodegenerative disorder and the predominant cause of dementia. The main pathological hallmarks of the disease in the brain are the presence of amyloid plaques and neurofibrilliary tangles composed of hyperphosphorylated forms of tau (P-tau).
  Development and Optimisation of a Biohybrid Heart Assist Device
  Prof S Korossis
Application Deadline: 28 January 2019
Reference number. WS19. Start date of studentship. 1st October 2019. Closing date of advert. 28th January 2019. Interview date. TBC.
  Development of molecularly imprinted polymer nanoparticles (nanoMIPs) specific for anti-AAV antibodies, their characterisation and application
  Dr E Piletska
Application Deadline: 17 January 2019
The studentship aims at addressing the issue of pre-existing humoral immunity to Adeno-Associated Viruses (AAV), which is frequently found in humans, and prevents treatment with AAV vectors.
  Exploring the boundaries of the human acetylome
  Dr S Cowley, Prof D Panne
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Lysine acetylation (Lys-Ac) is an abundant post-translational modification (PTM) occurring on thousands of proteins. However, our understanding of ‘acetylome’ regulation and its functional consequences remains well behind other common PTMs such as phosphorylation and ubiquitination.
  Heme regulation of signalling at potassium channels in the cardiovascular system
  Dr N Storey, Dr N W Davies
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Ion channels in the smooth muscle of the cardiovascular system control blood pressure and cardiac contractility through changes in their membrane potential.
  How does nucleosome remodelling silence chromatin?
  Dr T Schalch, Dr S Cowley
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Regulation of transcription through chromatin architecture is governed by nucleosome remodelers and is essential in establishing the transcriptional programs of eukaryotic cells, which underpin survival, cellular identity and many disease states.
  Molecular mechanisms underpinning EML4 driven microtubule stabilization and cell migration
  Dr A M Fry, Prof K Brown
Application Deadline: 1 January 2019
EML4 is a poorly characterised microtubule-associated protein [1]. The purpose of this cell biology-focused PhD project is to explore the molecular mechanisms through which EML4 regulates microtubule dynamics and cell migration.
  Obtaining mechanistic insights into interplay of multiple RAS effectors in a model system
  Dr K Tanaka, Dr C Dominguez
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
The RAS family of small GTPases act as signalling hubs regulating cell proliferation and differentiation. Importantly, about 20% of all human cancers harbour mutations in RAS genes (COSMIC).
