Showing 1 to 10 of 27
  Biochemical elucidation of the novel ECP bacterial stress response
  Dr N Dixon, Prof R Breitling
Application Deadline: 20 March 2019
This PhD project will focus on the detailed elucidation of the biochemical mechanism of a recently discovered gene regulatory network in bacteria.
  EPSRC-SFI Centre for Doctoral Training in Advanced Metallic Systems – Call for Applications for 4-year Funded PhD and EngD Studentships
We are looking for one hundred STEM graduates excited to improve the world via impactful research in new and novel metallic materials for power generation, transport, sustainability and recyclables, in a rapidly evolving digital manufacturing era using advanced computing techniques.
  Defining the role of UBLylation pathways in the DNA damage response
  Dr C.K Schmidt, Prof A Sharrocks
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
This 4-year BBSRC Case studentship with AstraZeneca will look at posttranslational modifications with ubiquitin-like proteins (UBLs) within and beyond the DNA damage response (DDR).
  Proteomic approach to understand mitochondrial quality control under normal and stress conditions
  Dr H Lu, Prof S Hubbard
Applications accepted all year round
Defects in protein quality control lead to the accumulation of misfolded and damaged proteins, which play an important role in many diseases (e.g.
  (MCRC Non-Clinical) NK cell control of tumour growth dependent on the inflammatory environment
  Prof D Davis, Dr S Zelenay
Application Deadline: 24 February 2019
Arguably, immune therapies for cancer are at a tipping point. Undoubtedly, there are many more successes to come. Understanding the mechanisms behind a strong anti-tumour immune response will surely seed new ideas for immune therapies.
  (WIS) Understanding the molecular basis of cartilage lubrication – an essential aspect of articular joint function: biophysical approaches to investigate supramolecular synergy
  Prof T Day, Dr C Milner
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
Articular cartilage, which coats the ends of bones in joints such as hips and knees, is a uniquely well-lubricated tissue. No synthetic material can match the almost frictionless movement between the cartilage surfaces as they slide past each other during joint articulation.
  The mechanism of gating and transport of pentameric Magnesium ion channels
  Dr S M Prince, Prof R Ford
Applications accepted all year round
Magnesium ions are a co-factor in many important biological processes particularly because of the requirement for Mg2+ in the hydrolysis of Adenosine tri-phosphate, the ubiquitous cellular energy source.
  (WIS) Inhibition of osteoclastogenesis for the prevention of bone wasting in human disease
  Prof J Hoyland, Dr J Bella
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
Osteoclasts (OCLs) are phagocytic cells that degrade bone as part of its homeostatic regulation. Abnormal activity of OCLs in several pathologies, such as osteoporosis and cancer, results in loss of bone mass, increased risk of fractures, and in an overall increase in significant morbidity and mortality.
  (WIS) The role of IL1 and inflammasome activation in behavioural manifestations in neurological lysosomal disease progression
  Dr B BIgger, Dr D Brough
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
Childhood dementia is a hallmark of around 2/3 of pediatric lysosomal storage disorders, together having a frequency of around 1/5500 live births.
  Graphene assembly and modification with biological approaches
  Dr H Lu, Prof P Xiao
Applications accepted all year round
Graphene, a two-dimensional (2D) carbon material, has attracted huge attention in recent years due to its unique and outstanding electronic, thermal, and mechanical properties.
