Application Deadline: 26 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The School of Biological and Chemical Sciences at Queen Mary is one of the UK’s elite research centres, according to the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF).
  Understanding the mechanism of RNA recognition by La-related proteins
  Prof MR Conte
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD studentship is available to work in the laboratory of Prof. Sasi (Maria R) Conte (https://www.kcl.ac.uk/people/sasi-conte), in the Randall Centre for Cell and Molecular Biophysics, King’s College London (https://www.kcl.ac.uk/lsm/research/divisions/randall).
  Enzyme mechanism through advanced techniques
  Dr P C E Moody
Application Deadline: 3 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This studentship is for up to 4 years and supported by a Royal Society Wolfson Fellowship. “Traditional” protein X-ray crystallography has contributed enormously to our understanding of enzyme mechanisms.

  Ion channel clustering in neuronal membranes
  Dr S M Prince, Prof R Ford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of the study is to investigate the organization of ion channels in the membranes of excitable cells by scaffold proteins, and to discover how the properties of the channels are modified by these interactions.
  The mechanism of gating and transport of pentameric Magnesium ion channels
  Dr S M Prince, Prof R Ford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Magnesium ions are a co-factor in many important biological processes particularly because of the requirement for Mg2+ in the hydrolysis of Adenosine tri-phosphate, the ubiquitous cellular energy source.
  Development of Novel Crystallization Methods for Integral Membrane Proteins
  Dr G Patchornik
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our research is focused on one of the major barriers in Structural biology. growing high quality three dimensional (3D) crystals of integral membrane proteins for structural analysis.
  PhD positions at the International Max Planck Research School in Chemical and Molecular Biology

Funding Type

PhD Type

Dortmund, Germany. Application Deadline. April 13th 2020. The International Max Planck Research School in Chemical and Molecular Biology (IMPRS-CMB) is looking for talented and motivated PhD candidates of all nationalities to carry out novel projects in the following research areas.
  Bioengineering of bacterial CO2-concentrating system for improved photosynthesis
  Prof LN Liu, Dr D Canniffe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The single-cell photosynthetic bacteria, cyanobacteria, account for over 25% of global carbon fixation, thanks for their powerful CO2-concentrating machinery.
  Control and inhibition of virus replication
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Dr A.K Tuplin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type


The Tuplin laboratory utilises a range of cutting-edge approaches to investigate how arboviruses - specificaly Chikungunya, Dengue and Zika viruses - control replication and translation of their genomes through interactions between RNA structures, host cell proteins and non-coding RNA, and the potential of such RNA elements/interactions as novel therapeutic targets.
  Epigenetics and Cancer: Determining how Mistakes in V(D)J Recombination Trigger Leukaemias and Lymphomas
  Research Group: School of Molecular and Cellular Biology
  Dr J Boyes
Application Deadline: 1 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

V(D)J recombination is essential to produce an effective adaptive immune system but since the reaction involves the breakage and rejoining of DNA, it is highly dangerous and errors have long been thought to lead to leukaemias and lymphomas.
  Structural and functional studies of outer membrane assembly in Gram-negative bacteria and mitochondria - DongMED_Oct2020
  Prof C Dong, Dr P Crichton
Application Deadline: 17 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The outer membrane plays essential roles in Gram-negative bacteria and mitochondria. Dysfunction of outer membrane proteins occur in several human diseases, such as diabetes, Parkinson and other neurodegenerative disease.
  Fostering development of ‘smart’, responsive therapeutics against cancer-related microRNAs.
  Dr E Bichenkova, Prof D Clarke, Dr H Aojula
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Short functional non-coding microRNAs are implicated in many types of cancer, and thus can be used as biological targets for development of more selective and powerful anticancer therapies.
  Mitochondrial protein folding and diseases
  Prof L-Y Lian, Dr D Criddle
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many diseases, including cancer and neurological disease, stem from mitochondrial dysfunctions often triggered by sudden elevation of agents such as calcium and reactive oxygen species.
