  PhD in cellular and structural biology - Elucidating infection at the plant-microbe interphase to define targets for crop breeding
  Dr C Voigt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Achieving food security is one of the most important global challenges. Crop production and yield has been increasingly threatened by plant pathogens in a rapidly changing environment.
  Myocardial biology with a specific focus on the mechanisms underlying cardiac fibrosis and atrial fibrillation
  Dr S Reilly, Prof C Redwood, Assoc Prof M Lei
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cardiac fibrosis is a hallmark histological feature of structural changes in the myocardium associated with virtually all cardiac diseases (e.g., heart failure, hypertension, atrial fibrillation and myocarditis).
  Understanding the mechanism of RNA recognition by La-related proteins
  Prof MR Conte
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD studentship is available to work in the laboratory of Prof. Sasi (Maria R) Conte (https://www.kcl.ac.uk/people/sasi-conte), in the Randall Centre for Cell and Molecular Biophysics, King’s College London (https://www.kcl.ac.uk/lsm/research/divisions/randall).
  Enzyme mechanism through advanced techniques
  Dr P C E Moody
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This studentship is for up to 4 years and supported by a Royal Society Wolfson Fellowship. “Traditional” protein X-ray crystallography has contributed enormously to our understanding of enzyme mechanisms.

  Bioengineering of bacterial CO2-concentrating system for improved photosynthesis
  Prof LN Liu, Dr D Canniffe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The single-cell photosynthetic bacteria, cyanobacteria, account for over 25% of global carbon fixation, thanks for their powerful CO2-concentrating machinery.
  Control and inhibition of virus replication
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Dr A.K Tuplin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type


The Tuplin laboratory utilises a range of cutting-edge approaches to investigate how arboviruses - specificaly Chikungunya, Dengue and Zika viruses - control replication and translation of their genomes through interactions between RNA structures, host cell proteins and non-coding RNA, and the potential of such RNA elements/interactions as novel therapeutic targets.
  Epigenetics and Cancer: Determining how Mistakes in V(D)J Recombination Trigger Leukaemias and Lymphomas
  Research Group: School of Molecular and Cellular Biology
  Dr J Boyes
Application Deadline: 1 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

V(D)J recombination is essential to produce an effective adaptive immune system but since the reaction involves the breakage and rejoining of DNA, it is highly dangerous and errors have long been thought to lead to leukaemias and lymphomas.
