Four fully-funded 3-year PhD studentships starting late September 2019

Realise your research ambitions in state-of-the-art research laboratories with world class facilities and expertise. You will be joining a dynamic and multi-disciplinary community with over 200 researchers located within a purpose-built research building.

Research in the Leicester Institute of Structural and Chemical Biology and the Department of Molecular and Cell Biology focuses on understanding the fundamental mechanisms of life, and disease, at both a molecular and cellular level.

Key areas of study include the mechanisms controlling gene expression, cell proliferation and differentiation, and the regulation of channels, receptors and signalling pathways.

This fundamental research underpins translational studies to further our understanding of the biochemical mechanisms of human disease, including cancer biology and structure-based drug design. Details of specific projects and supervisors can be found here.

Our major research facilities include:

  • Advanced Imaging Facility for research at both the cellular and single molecule level
  • Structural Biology Facility including Cryo-electron Microscopy, X-ray crystallography & Nuclear Magnetic Resonance
  • Powerful GPU & CPU based computing facility to support advanced research technologies.

Alongside these facilities you will have access to multiple services to accelerate your research.

We are looking for highly motivated students with enthusiasm to work on advanced research projects that will transform our understanding.

Students will benefit from joining a community of like-minded post-graduate research students. We have a well-established support structure for all students that includes a program of regular meetings with second-supervisors and committee members to ensure the highest quality of research supervision.
