  Characterising the human Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) synaptic proteome
  Dr C Henstridge, Dr T Wishart
Application Deadline: 1 February 2019
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is caused by the breakdown of upper and lower motor neurons leading to the progressive weakness and atrophy of muscle, often resulting in respiratory failure and death within a few years of diagnosis.
  Eukaryotic gene expression: understanding the role of UPF1 in global mRNA processing and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
  Dr S Brogna
Applications accepted all year round
This project’s specific objective is to study the molecular role(s) that the RNA helicase UPF1 plays in RNA processing. UPF1 is a key player in nonsense-mediated mRNA decay (NMD), it is universally conserved in eukaryotes and is essential to the development of many organisms [1].
  Crime scene based screening and identification of intimate body fluids
  Dr G Williams
Applications accepted all year round
The screening and identification of blood at crime scenes has been extensively and exhaustively researched with a range of strategies developed ranging from general LMG/KM testing through to ALS, Raman and Hyperspectral imaging.
  A comprehensively analysis of microorganisms and viruses from ancient samples using minion sequencing techniques
  Prof M Marz
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
In current metagenomic samples we are able to assign only up to 10% of the microorganisms, most of them being bacteria. This number drops significantly when investigating additionally viruses in especially ancient samples.
  Ancient proteins as indicators of climatic and evolutionary change
  Dr N Boivin
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Zooarchaeology by Mass Spectrometry (ZooMS) is a powerful new method that is revolutionizing the ability of archaeologists to provide insights into faunal changes through time.
  Co-estimating Human Mobility and Language Dispersal with Ancient DNA and Linguistic Data
  Dr S. Schiffels
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Human mobility is a key factor for the spread of genes and languages, but it affects them in different ways. While genes spread exclusively by movements of people, cultural traits such as languages can spread independently.
  Contact and change in the diversification of the Indo-Iranic languages
  Prof R. Gray
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Indo-Iranic is the largest, and historically the most geographically extensive, branch of the Indo-European language family. It consists of hundreds of languages spread over a vast area of west, central and south Asia, with diffusion even further afield along with migration in the modern period.
  Cross-Linguistic Strategies of Denotation: Advancing data and methods in lexical typology
  Dr J List
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Although on first sight there are many different ways in which the languages classify the world around us, many of the techniques used for naming are surprisingly similar across very different languages.
  Dog-Human Cooperation – A Comparative Approach
  Prof S Schweinberger
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Cooperation, defined as a behaviour that is beneficial to another individual or to several individuals involved in a task, is characteristic for humans, but also for domestic dogs.
  Domestication of Perennial Plants: Evolution and Dispersal
  Dr R Spengler
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Some of the most heavily investigated research topics in the sciences relate to the origins of agriculture. Over the past century and a half, scholars from across several fields of scholarship have dedicated their careers to the questions of when, where, how, and why plants and animals were first domesticated.
