  Structural and biochemical analysis of chromosome segregation in yeast
  Dr D Barford
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our research is focused on understanding the mechanisms and regulation of chromosome segregation in mitosis. During the cell cycle, accurate chromosome segregation ensures that both daughter cells inherit the correct complement of chromosomes.
  Structural and biochemical studies of macromolecular complexes involved in telomere maintenance
  Dr K Nguyen
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Linear eukaryotic chromosomes are capped with telomeres, which protect chromosomes against degradation and inter-chromosomal fusion and thus are essential for maintaining genome integrity.
  Structure and mechanisms of the eukaryotic replisome
  Dr J Yeeles
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Each time a cell divides it must duplicate its genetic material. The extraordinary molecular machine responsible for this task is called the replisome.
  Sub-nanometer resolution imaging of individual biological molecules by electron cryomicroscopy
  Dr C Russo
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many fundamental problems in biology relate to how proteins interact with DNA and RNA. The difficulty in addressing these questions arises from the limitations of current microscopes and the complex and fragile nature of biomolecules.
  Supra-molecular architecture of neurotransmitter receptor complexes
  Dr R Aricescu
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chemical synapses are cellular connectors that define the organization and function of neuronal circuits and, as a result, the fundamental ability of the brain to acquire and store information.
  Symmetry breaking in early mammalian organogenesis: the mechanical and cellular basis of gut tube formation
  Dr K McDole
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The McDole lab is a newly established lab that studies how the mouse embryo builds complex structures such as a beating heart or the intricate folds of the brain from initially simple and uniform starting materials.
  Systematic cell reprogramming –transdifferentiation– cell fate and evolution using computational approaches.
  Dr J Gough
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The field of regenerative medicine was stunned in 2007 by the possibility of creating stem cells from adult human cells (1). Since then it has been shown that it is also possible to trans-differentiate from one mature human cell type to another.
  The role of crosslink repair in primordial germ cells and germ cell tumours
  Dr G Crossan
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Germ cells are uniquely tasked with passing on genetic information. They ultimately give rise to sperm or eggs that come together to produce a new organism with new germ cells.
  The structural basis of viral transport by dynein/dynactin.
  Dr A Carter
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Viruses are too large to move inside cells unless they hijack cytoskeletal motors such as the microtubule motor dynein. Remarkably dynein is co-opted by all classes of virus.
  Towards RNA-mediated peptide synthesis
  Dr J Sutherland
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to build on recently discovered activation chemistry and shed some light on the origin of ribosomal peptide synthesis.
