Breast Cancer Now Funded PhD Studentship At Imperial College London


Project Description

A 4-year PhD studentship funded by Breast Cancer Now is available starting in
October 2019 in Prof. Xiaodong Zhang’s laboratory, Section of Structural Biology,
Department of Medicine, Imperial College London and in collaboration with Prof. Jo
Morris, Institute of Cancer and Genomic Sciences, University of Birmingham. The
project will characterise the structural and molecular consequences of germline
cancer associated mutations in two major tumor suppressors, the breast cancer
susceptibility genes BRCA1 and BRCA2. This project will use a range of molecular
and structural biology tools, including cutting-edge cryo electron microscopy
techniques coupled with in vivo cellular assays. We aim to find the structural,
functional, cellular and physiological consequences of these mutations.

Funding Notes

You must be a UK or EU residence with at least an upper second BSc degree or
equivalent in Biochemistry or related subject and demonstrated interest and
experience in structural biology research and cancer biology. The successful
candidate will be a registered student at Imperial College London and will spend time
at both Imperial and Birmingham. The project offers excellent multidisciplinary
training opportunities and the successful candidate will benefit from extensive
support provided by Breast Cancer Now, Imperial College London and University of
Birmingham. The funding covers UK/EU student fees and an annual stipend.
