  Multidisciplinary characterisation of an orphan cell membrane complex in lung cancer
  Dr M Coleman, Prof R Owens
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019
3rd supervisor. Dr John Le Quesne, University of Leicester. The objective of this exciting research project is to investigate a poorly characterised membrane complex implicated in lung cancer in order to help better understand this common cancer of unmet clinical need.
  Multimerisation of ELAV/Hu proteins – a key mechanism ensuring specificity for RNA recognition in health and disease
  Dr M Soller, Dr T Knowles
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019
Aims. Determine the structure of the ELAV dodecameric complex bound to target RNA by cryoEM and functionally probe interaction interfaces in vitro and in vivo in transgenic Drosophila models for neurodegeneration and cancer.
  Dissecting the interplay between cardiomyocytes and fibroblasts using human stem cell models of disease
  Dr D Pavlovic, Prof C Denning
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019
Applications are invited for a fully-funded PhD Studentship starting in October 2019, under the guidance of Dr Davor Pavlovic (University of Birmingham) and Prof Chris Denning (University of Nottingham).
  Determining the structure and function of an endothelial-mesenchymal bridging complex
  Dr V Heath, Dr J Woolard, Prof R Bicknell, Dr D Scott
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019
David Scott (University of Nottingham) 4th supervisor. Angiogenesis plays a critical role during development and in physiological processes such as wound healing, it is also critically involved in the pathogenesis of diseases including cancer and diabetic retinopathy.
  Probing cellular organisation via protein structure, function and evolution
  Dr P J Winn
Applications accepted all year round
A passion for science? Interested in biological organisation? Curious about bio-molecules? We are studying the interactions made by proteins, including the effects of drugs interacting with proteins, as well as the interaction between protein domains.
  Structure and Function Studies on Proteins from Predatory Bacteria
  Dr A Lovering
Applications accepted all year round
Bdellovibrio bacteriovorus is a small predatory bacterium able to invade and kill many different Gram-negative bacterial prey (including human, animal and crop pathogens; e.g.
  Synthetic Biology PhD - exploring how viruses can be used as components in bionanoassembly.
  Prof T R Dafforn
Applications accepted all year round
One of the aims of Synthetic Biology is to build complex bio-machines using the simple building blocks of life.
  Understanding the structure and function of human aquaporins: combining site-directed mutagenesis and mammalian cell culture techniques to elucidate the key residues of AQP proteins required for these processes
  Dr A Conner
Applications accepted all year round
PhD Research project. Aquaporins are an ancient family of proteins that provide a route for water to rapidly move in and out of cells in response to the changing needs of the body.
