About the Project
The student will learn a variety of techniques to examine GPCR function including cell culture, molecular biology, structural modelling, biophysical techniques, signalling assays (FRET, BRET, HTRF) and single-molecule (super-resolution) microscopy. They will benefit from an interdisciplinary supervisory team comprising: Dr Caroline Gorvin, the principal supervisor based at the Institute of Metabolism and Systems Research, University of Birmingham; Professor Dmitry Veprintsev, University of Nottingham; and Professor Davide Calebiro, University of Birmingham. The student will be expected to embrace being part of a world-class metabolic research institute within IMSR and an innovative interdisciplinary environment in the Centre of Membrane Proteins and Receptors (COMPARE).
Applicants should have a strong background in cell biology or pharmacology and an interest in membrane proteins, GPCRs and advanced imaging techniques. They should hold or realistically expect to obtain at least an Upper Second Class Honours Degree in a related biological subject (e.g. molecular biology, biochemistry, biomedical sciences).
