  Investigating a parasite-specific gene expression mechanism for the identification of novel anthelmintic drug targets
  Dr B Mueller, Dr J Pettitt, Dr B Connolly
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nematode parasites remain a major cause of neglected human disease and make significant global impacts on the health of agriculturally important animals and plants.
  How does serotonin affect sexual behaviour in fish?
  Dr D Joyce
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is a possible role for serotonin in the sand-castle building behaviour of cichlid fishes, behaviour carried out by males to attract females.
  Pollution of freshwaters with selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors: a health perspective
  Dr P Beltran-Alvarez
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A range of pharmaceuticals including selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI) have routinely been measured in waterways, such as rivers and estuaries, in the ng/L range (e.g.
  PhD in population genetics
  Dr K Zeng
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our research combines theoretical development and empirical data analysis. In particular, we are interested in developing new methods for analyzing DNA sequence data, and applying them to real datasets.
  Application of random regression and genomic models to study growth curves in UK beef cattle and sheep and estimate Genotype x Environment interactions
  Dr R Mrode
Application Deadline: 7 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Currently, multivariate systems are utilized for the computation of breeding values in the UK national Beef and Sheep populations but these models are inadequate in modelling the growth curves of animals when multiple weight records have been taken over the life of the animal.
  The role of serotonin in crayfish anti-predatory behaviour and dominance
  Dr T Breithaupt
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Serotonin is involved in anxiety-like behaviour as well as in dominance fights in crayfish. Anxiety-like behaviour can be elicited by a stressful experience such as exposure to chemical predation cues or intraspecific fight experience.
  The epigenetic regulation of early annelid development
  Dr JM Martin
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD position is available to start in September 2020 at Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) in the Martín-Durán Lab (www.martinduranlab.com), to work on the project “The epigenetic regulation of early annelid development”.
  Uncovering 3D genome architecture in annelid worms
  Dr JM Martin
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).
  Expanded potential stem cells for regenerative medicine, immunotherapy, and biotechnology
  Prof P Liu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Embryonic stem cells (ES cells) and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS cells) are pluripotent and thus hold great promise in regenerative medicine, studying disease mechanisms and drug discovery.
  The genetics/genomics of adaptive evolutionary change
  Dr N Nadeau
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The basic process of evolution by natural selection involves genetic changes that confer an advantage in survival or reproduction.
