The Faculty of Medicine at the University of Southampton has a strong reputation in research, enterprise and education, with an emphasis on translating new discoveries from basic science into clinical innovation.
  Dissecting the tubulin diversity: understanding how tubulin isotypes regulate microtubule networks
  Dr J Ti
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

α/β-tubulin heterodimers form dynamic polymers, microtubules, that are central to cellular processes, such as cell division, cell migration, and organelle transportation.
  Improving Photosynthetic Efficiency - Engineering and Evolution of Light-Harvesting Complexes via Synthetic Biology
  Dr D Canniffe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Photosynthesis is the ultimate source of food and energy for almost all forms of life. Using sunlight as the energy input, photosynthesis removes carbon dioxide from the atmosphere generating the oxygen and carbohydrate that support complex life.
  Open Position in Computational Molecular Biophysics
  Prof B de Groot
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The research group of Computational Biomolecular Dynamics (Prof. Dr. Bert de Groot) invites applications for a position as. PhD Student (f/m/d) (Code number 06-20) for the project.
  Molecular analysis of the dynamic sulfotyrosine proteome
  Prof C E Eyers, Prof P Eyers, Dr A R Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The survival of an organism depends upon the ability of different cell types to communicate with each other by assembling the correct complexes of proteins at the correct time in the correct place.
  (Photo)Synthetic Biology - Engineering Biohybrid Photosystems For Enhanced Solar Energy Conversion in Devices
  Dr M R Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is growing interest in the use of photosynthetic proteins in devices for solar energy conversion, biosensing, photosensing, photocatalysis, touch sensing, molecular electronics and biodegradable solar cells.
  Defining a novel assembly pathway in ssRNA viruses using X-ray footprinting.
  Prof P G Stockley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project co-supervised by Prof. Peter Stockley at Leeds and Prof. Reidun Twarock at University of York, as part of the White Rose network "Structural and Mechanistic Biology at the RNA/Ligand Interface".
  Learning from plant cell walls as a path for innovations in food and material sciences
  Dr Y Benitez-Alfonso, Dr C Bosch
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The research will dissect the structural factors controlling cell walls and cell communication for two main purposes. to improve the health value of food crops and to design strategies for the valorisation of wasted plant materials.
  Nanoinjection: a single molecule technique to study amyloid toxicity in neurons
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Dr E W Hewitt, Prof S E Radford, Dr P Actis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Interested in amyloid disorders such as Parkinson’s and Huntington’s. Want to work with cutting edge technology in a multidisciplinary team.
  Role of m6A methylation in virus infection
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Prof A Whitehouse, Dr A.K Tuplin
Application Deadline: 6 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

RNA can be chemically modified and it’s now emerging that the modification status of an RNA can affect its fate and function. The most common mRNA modification, m6A methylation, functions by recruiting so-called effector m6A reader proteins to modified RNAs.
  Evolutionary insights for engineering improved globin oxygen carriers
  Dr M Berenbrink, Dr J Madine
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Around 2 million red blood cell units at a cost of 120.00 GBP per unit are transfused annually in England alone (http://www.nhsbt.nhs.uk/what-we-do/blood-transfusion/).
  Exploiting advanced methods for protein structure prediction
  Dr D J Rigden, Dr R Keegan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Protein structural information is crucial for an understanding of protein function and evolution. Currently, there is only experimental data for a tiny fraction of the protein universe.
  SOD1 The Key protein for finding a cure for familial Motor Neurone Disease
  Dr S Antonyuk, Prof S Hasnain
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Motor neurone disease is a progressive, fatal neurological disorder with no known cure. It is characterised by selective loss of motor neurons in the spinal cord and cortex.
  The mechanism of regulation of protein synthesis via eIF2 molecular complexes
  Dr A Roseman, Prof G D Pavitt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Control of protein synthesis is critical for normal metabolism, development and responses to stress. One major pathway is called the integrated stress response (ISR) and centres on translational control of the general protein synthesis factor eIF2B via the phosphorylation of eIF2 [1,2].
  Synthetic Virology: Development of gene delivery vectors/synthetic vaccines
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Prof P G Stockley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is worldwide interest in exploiting our modern understanding of genomics to target gene expression therapeutically via a variety of mechanisms, such as transgene insertion and CRISPR-Cas gene editing.
