  “Green carbon capture”: Towards a mechanistic understanding of how photosynthetic bacteria transport and store CO2.
  Dr A Cameron, Dr R Puxty, Prof D J Scanlan
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Membrane transport proteins enable small molecules such as nutrients, ions, neurotransmitters, and toxins to move across cellular membranes.
  3D Organ design in plants
  Prof G Bassel, Dr M Gifford
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Across evolutionary history, multicellularity has arisen multiple times independently. By having cells co-operate together, multicellular organisms developed adaptive advantages over their unicellular counterparts.
  Bacterial ABC transporters involved in antibiotic resistance and sensing
  Dr A Crow, Prof D Roper, Dr S Gebhard
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Type VII ABC transporters are a superfamily of ATP-powered membrane proteins that function in bacterial antibiotic resistance, toxin secretion, cell division and membrane biogenesis [1,2,3].
  High resolution cryo-electron microscopy of clathrin cage networks
  Dr Corinne Smith, Prof Richard Napier
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In cryo-electron microscopy, the superior signal sensitivity of new direct electron detectors has revolutionised the field of structure determination allowing sub-4Å structures of challenging targets such as membrane proteins and ribosomes to be obtained without using X-ray crystallography.
  Phytopharmacology of Polar Auxin Transport
  Prof Richard Napier, Dr A Cameron, Dr M Wall
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Polar transport of hormones lays down patterning in plants. Polar auxin transport is mediated by PIN proteins which are plasma membrane-bound transporters.
  Protein complexes required for bacterial cell wall biosynthesis and division
  Prof D Roper, Dr A Crow, Dr M Jenner, Prof T R Dafforn
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) is now widely understood to be a global healthcare emergency, exacerbated by many socio-economic factors.
  Understanding the Maturation and Localisation Pathways within the Bacterial Cell Envelope
  Dr P Stansfeld, Prof D Roper
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the fundamental challenges in biological sciences is to visualise the dynamics of biomolecular machines in high-resolution detail.
  Curly, a novel IQGAP protein domain that bends actin filaments: characterisation and novel applications
  Dr D Köster, Prof M Balasubramanian
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Actin filaments are central to a large number of biological processes in all domains of life. Dirven by the interplay with molecular motors, actin binding and actin modulating proteins, the actin cytoskeleton exhibits a variety of geometries.
  Investigation of a completely uncharacterised, embryonically lethal gene in immune cell development
  Dr J James, Prof K Sampath
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The development of vertebrate animals from a single fertilised cell to the fully formed adult is an astonishingly well-choreographed sequence of events, which is made more remarkable by being so faithfully recapitulated on each attempt.
  Exploring cell wall biosynthethic complexes for next generation antimicrobial discovery
  Prof D Roper
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The biosynthesis of the bacterial cell wall represents an area of bacterial metabolism, which is a validated target for numerous antimicrobials1.
