  Membrane protein biogenesis and quality control
  Dr R Hegde
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Approximately 20-25% of genes in humans encode integral membrane proteins that must be selectively targeted to and inserted into the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) membrane.
  Membrane protein misfolding and disease: quality control pathways
  Dr L Swanton, Prof P Woodman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Misfolded proteins represent a continuous threat to cell viability, and if allowed to accumulate, can disrupt cellular function and induce cell death.
  Investigating the role of membrane transporters in early development
  Research Group: Chromatin & Development
  Dr M Percharde, Dr L Fets
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is a joint project between the Chromatin and Development and the Drug Transport and Tumour Metabolism groups within the MRC LMS.
  Transport of essential nutrients across the outer membrane of a bacterial pathogen
  Dr M Thomas
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gram-negative bacteria possess a second membrane, the outer membrane (OM), that serves as an additional line of defence against noxious agents, including antibiotics.
  Structural and Biophysical Characterisation of Novel Membrane Protein Ion Channels (Chinese candidates / China mainland only)
  Research Group: School of Biomedical Sciences
  Dr C Pliotas
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research in the Pliotas group (https://www.pliotasgroup.org/) focuses on the investigation of molecular mechanisms which underlie the structure and function of integral membrane proteins, in particular ion channels.
  Pathophysiology of red cell membrane permeability
  Dr J Gibson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our project investigates how red cell membrane permeability is altered in pathophysiological states.
  Advancing our understanding of fundamental cellular processes by investigating membrane contact sites.
  Dr P Pryor, Dr C G Baumann
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

An emerging, exciting area of research is that of membrane contact site (MCS) biology.
  Imaging viruses and cells by electron cryomicroscopy (cryoEM)
  Dr P Rosenthal
Application Deadline: 12 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 4-year PhD studentship is offered in Dr Peter Rosenthal’s Group based at the Francis Crick Institute (the Crick). Our group studies the architecture of large protein assemblies in order to understand basic molecular mechanisms that control protein and membrane traffic in the cell and in virus infection.
  A mechanistic understanding of circadian clock-dependent regulation of the secretory pathway
  Prof K E Kadler, Dr Q-J Meng, Dr J Swift
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The protein secretory pathway comprises a series of membranous compartments and transport vesicles that cells use to synthesise, post-translationally modify, and move proteins for delivery to the plasma membrane or for secretion to the extracellular matrix.
  GW4 BioMed MRC DTP PhD studentship: Using nanotechnology, structural biology and genome editing to study how fungal receptors promote the spread of lethal diseases
  Dr N Brown
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the ‘GW4 BioMed MRC Doctoral Training Partnership’ which is offering up to 18 studentships for entry in September 2020.
