  Methionine adenosyltransferases in disease and regulation of gene expression
  Dr S Antonyuk, Prof S Hasnain
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Transmethylation, the transfer of a methyl group from one molecule to another, is a fundamental chemical reaction that plays a central role in important biological processes such as gene expression, cell growth and apoptosis.
  TDP-43 The Key protein for finding a cure for 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.
  International PhD Programme in Molecular Life Sciences

Funding Type

PhD Type

 The Vienna Biocenter (VBC) PhD Programme in Life Sciences has been running since 1993, providing students from all over the world with excellent training.
  Molecular basis of cellular organisation
  Dr M Dodding
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research in our lab aims to understand the molecular mechanisms and signaling pathways that control the distribution and dynamics of subcellular components, focusing on structure, function, molecular mechanism and regulation of the key biomolecular machines regulate cellular organization including cytoskeletal motor proteins.
  Mass spectrometry analysis of human tissue to characterise cleavage events resulting in amyloid deposition associated with aortic aneurysm and dissection
  Dr J Madine, Prof C E Eyers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The most common form of localised amyloid occurs in the aorta (aortic medial amyloid; AMA) and is estimated to occur in 97% of Caucasian people over 50.
  Understanding how the NuRD complex regulates 3D genome organization using a combination of single-molecule super-resolution imaging and single cell biology
  Prof E D Laue
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The spatial organisation of the genome is known to play an important role in regulating RNA transcription to effect cell-type-specific gene expression programs, and to control the differentiation of embryonic stem (ES) cells.
  Characterising surface properties of protein biopharmaceutical molecules
  Dr A Golovanov, Dr J Warwicker
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Protein biologicals have great potential for the effective treatment of a wide range of diseases. However, aggregation and instability are inherent issues with all protein pharmaceuticals, which is a problem that can limit their utility and developability.
  Dissecting the role of MCE proteins in Cyanobacteria
  Dr V Darbari, Prof C Mullineaux
Applications accepted all year round

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 link between the gut microbiome and health: probing the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying prebiotic effects
  Prof K A Watson
Application Deadline: 30 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisory Team. Professor Kimberly Watson (Biological Sciences), Professor Glenn Gibson (Food Biosciences) and Dr. Lucien Harthoorn (Clasado Ltd).
  Investigation of aortic remodelling in obesity and role of mitochondrial dysfunction
  Dr A Kitmitto, Dr E Cartwright
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Obesity is a global healthcare and economic burden with currently more than 650 million adults classified as obese (WHO, 2017). Obesity is a common precursor to type 2 diabetes (T2DM), and both are risk factors for developing cardiovascular disease.
  The bacterial protein translocation machinery: a target for new strategies against antimicrobial resistance
  Prof I Collinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bacterial resistance to antibiotics is a major problem affecting millions of people across the world. This severely affects treatment of bacterial infections as strains are emerging that are totally resistant to all clinically used antibiotics.
  Using computational biology to understand how cancer-associated mutations disrupt protein complexes
  Research Group: MRC Human Genetics Unit
  Dr J Marsh
Application Deadline: 3 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited from outstanding candidates to join the MRC Human Genetics Unit (HGU), part of the Institute of Genetics and Molecular Medicine (IGMM) at the University of Edinburgh.
  Observing Nucleic Acid Aptamer Binding with Ultrafast 2D-IR Spectroscopy
  Prof N Hunt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project will be a collaboration with Prof Glenn Burley (University of Strathclyde). Background. The strong and specific binding of small molecules and proteins to DNA has relevance across many areas, from fundamental biophysics, through chemical biology to nanotechnology.
  Structure, regulation and dynamics of small G proteins and their interactions with membranes and effector proteins
  Dr H Mott
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our lab are interested in cell signalling via small G proteins of the Ras superfamily. We use a range of biochemical, biophysical and structural approaches to understand these fascinating proteins, which are involved in multiple cellular processes and are often deregulated in diseases such as cancer.
  Molecular mechanisms of eukaryotic SMC complexes
  Research Group: Cell Cycle
  Dr L Aragon
Application Deadline: 26 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Every cell contains an enormous amount of DNA organised into one or more chromosomes. Chromosomes need to be accessed by components of the cell so that the information they contain can be read and used.
