  Exploring the mitotic functions of ASPM in human brain size regulation
  Dr J Bond, Dr E E Morrison, Prof M Peckham
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The increase in relative brain size is one of the most striking events in human evolution. To determine how human brain size is normally regulated we have investigated the cause of autosomal recessive primary microcephaly (MCPH), a congenital disorder of reduced brain size and associated mental retardation.
  Neural basis underlying mating decisions in fruit flies
  Dr C Rezaval
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mate choice is an essential behavioural process with profound consequences in evolution. How do animals choose with whom to mate? How do they evaluate the features of a potential mate to maximise their reproductive success?.
  Specialized cortical circuits for representation of three-dimensional visual space
  Dr P Znamenskiy
Application Deadline: 12 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 4-year PhD studentship is offered in Dr Petr Znamenskiy ’s Group based at the Francis Crick Institute (the Crick). Biological neural circuits are products of millions of years of evolution that have shaped them to perform tasks essential for animals’ survival.
