  Alternative pre-mRNA splicing
  Prof C W J Smith
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The following is a general statement about ongoing research on alternative splicing in the Smith lab. Specific projects will be available in one or more of these areas.
  Evolution and biochemistry of photosynthesis - electron transfer reactions, renewable energy production, biotechnology, and chloroplast genomes
  Prof C J Howe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The common theme of our work is the biochemistry and evolution of photosynthesis.
  Mechanism of transmembrane receptor activation
  Dr M Hyvonen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a PhD position, starting in October 2019, in the group Dr Marko Hyvonen at University of Cambridge (http://hyvonen.bioc.cam.ac.uk/) to study the mechanism of transmembrane signalling by TGFbeta family growth factors.
  Small G proteins and their effectors as therapeutic targets in cancer
  Dr D Owen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

For the majority of cancers the acquisition of invasive and metastatic characteristics leads to incurable disease in the host.
  Structure, regulation and dynamics of small G proteins and their interactions with membranes and effector proteins
  Dr H Mott
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our lab are interested in cell signalling via small G proteins of the Ras superfamily. We use a range of biochemical, biophysical and structural approaches to understand these fascinating proteins, which are involved in multiple cellular processes and are often deregulated in diseases such as cancer.
  Understanding how the NuRD complex regulates 3D genome organization using a combination of single-molecule super-resolution imaging and single cell biology
  Prof E D Laue
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The spatial organisation of the genome is known to play an important role in regulating RNA transcription to effect cell-type-specific gene expression programs, and to control the differentiation of embryonic stem (ES) cells.
  How do malaria parasites sense and respond to DNA damage?
  Dr C Merrick
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The malaria parasite Plasmodium has a complex lifecycle involving several highly unusual cell cycles. Rather than conventional binary fission, it grows via syncytial modes of replication, producing multinucleate syncytia prior to budding and cytokinesis.
  Exploring aberrant inflammasome activation in chronic granulomatous disease
  Dr S Webster, Prof C E Bryant
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will test the hypothesis. Aberrant inflammasome activation can be caused by mitochondrial ROS mediated NLRP3 inflammasome activation.
  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.
  Using canine models of obesity to discover the mechanisms by which genes influence obesity.
  Dr E Raffan, Dr D Sargan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are interested in discovering the mechanisms by which genes influence obesity. The dog is an excellent model organism for human comparative analyses.
