  Mechanistic, structural, and functional studies of a human carbohydrate processing enzyme
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr T Gloster
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Carbohydrates, or sugars, are ubiquitous throughout nature and perform a number of important functions in our cells.
  Structural biology of nucleic acid processing machines from human and bacterial viruses
  Prof A A Antson, Dr P Fogg
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Viruses are the most common biological entities on our planet, infecting all living things. In humans, viral infections like herpes and poliovirus cause serious illnesses but, because they are impossible to eradicate using current treatments, they can also persist indefinitely.

  A structural basis for the cross-talk between histones and RNA Polymerase II
  Prof R Stefl, Dr K Kubicek, Prof S Vanacova
Application Deadline: 20 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chromatin is a highly flexible architecture in which spatially and temporally coordinated changes between structurally condensed states (transcriptionally repressive), and structurally accessible states (transcriptionally active) regulate gene expression.
  Cracking the CTD code
  Prof R Stefl, Dr K Kubicek, Dr P Plevka
Application Deadline: 20 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The concept of the CTD code that specifies the position of RNAPII in the transcriptional cycle and thus recruits specific processing factors, was suggested almost a decade ago.
  Dynamics of the Structure Maintenance of Chromosome (SMC) complexes
  Prof J Palecek
Application Deadline: 20 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The SMC (Structure Maintenance of Chromosome) complexes are the key components of higher-order chromatin fibers and play important roles in genome stability.
  Structure/function studies of component proteins of anti-feeding prophage (Afp), a bacteriophage tail-like particle using high-resolution cryo-EM and x-ray crystallography
  Prof A Mitra
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are seeking a highly motivated candidate to carry out structure/function studies of component proteins of anti-feeding prophage (Afp), a bacteriophage tail-like particle using high-resolution cryo-EM and x-ray crystallography.
  Role of m6A reader proteins in virus infection
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Prof A Whitehouse, Dr A.K Tuplin
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

RNA is an intermediate molecule in the flow of genetic information from DNA to protein. It is a critical junction for the cell to regulate gene expression, through multiple RNA processing events.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: The in situ 3D molecular structure of Alzheimer’s disease-associated pathology by cryo-electron microscopy
  Dr R Frank, Prof S E Radford, Dr E W Hewitt
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Synapses are the microprocessors of the mind that encode and store memories. In Alzheimer’s disease (AD), synapses are damaged by the constituents of abnormal beta-amyloid plaques that accumulate in the brain.
  Integrative Computational Biology and Machine Learning
  Dr A Sahakyan
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In Sahakyan Group, we strive to make computational biology maximally independent from empirical experimental data, by basing our models and predictions on genomic sequences and core biological mechanisms.

  Designing and evolving plastic-degrading enzymes for new function
  Dr B Lichtenstein, Prof J McGeehan, Dr S Robson
Application Deadline: 7 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a fully-funded four year PhD studentship to commence in October 2020. The PhD will be based at the University’s Centre for Enzyme Innovation (CEI), and will be supervised by Dr Bruce Lichtenstein, Prof.
  PhD Position in Cryo Electron Microscopy of Rhodopsin Cyclases
  Prof P Wendler
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Eukaryotic rhodopsin guanylyl cyclases (RhGC) and rhodopsin phosphodiesterases (RhPDE) combine a rhodopsin photoreceptor module with an enzymatic unit that catalyzes the conversion of cyclic nucleotides to the corresponding 5’-phosphate nucleotide or vice versa.
