  Network interactions shape the circadian clock in Drosophila melanogaster
  Dr E Rosato, Prof C P Kyriacou
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
The circadian clock is an endogenous mechanism that synchronizes almost all behaviour and physiology with the Earth’s 24 hour environmental cycles.
  A mechanistic understanding of circadian clock-dependent regulation of the secretory pathway
  Prof K E Kadler, Dr Q-J Meng, Dr J Swift
Applications accepted all year round
The protein secretory pathway comprises a series of membranous compartments and transport vesicles that cells use to synthesise, post-translationally modify, and move proteins for delivery to the plasma membrane or for secretion to the extracellular matrix.
  Studying the role of the circadian clock in plant-virus interaction
  Research Group: Institute of Molecular Plant Sciences
  Dr Attila Molnar
Application Deadline: 13 December 2018
Circadian rhythm is an approximately 24-hour cycle in the physiological processes of living organisms, which is driven by the circadian clock (1).
  Mapping the circadian clock-dependent regulation of the secretory pathway
  Prof K E Kadler, Dr Q-J Meng
Applications accepted all year round
The protein secretory pathway in cells comprises a series of membranous compartments and transport vesicles that the cell uses to synthesise, post-translationally modify, and move proteins for delivery to the plasma membrane or for secretion to the extracellular matrix.
  Dissecting quantitative variation in the plant circadian clock
  Prof S J Davis, Dr J Pitchford
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The seasonal timing of growth is critical for plant performance under both ecological and agricultural settings. The circadian clock holds a key place in such seasonal adaptation as crop adaptations to agriclimatic zones is realised.
  To address the functional significance of circadian clock genes in regulating the “stemness” and tumorigenesis of mammary cells
  Prof C Streuli, Dr Q-J Meng
Applications accepted all year round
Circadian (24 hourly) rhythms generated by our intrinsic biological clocks play critical roles in regulating physiology and behaviour.
  Transcription factors mediating light input to the Arabidopsis circadian clock
  Dr P Devlin
Applications accepted all year round
The circadian clock is tightly tied to the light environment. Transcriptional feedback loops are able to generate a self-sustaining rhythm of approximately 24 hours which impinges on almost every aspect of physiology in higher organisms.
  CINCHRON Marie Skłodowska-Curie ITN Early Stage Researcher: Investigating how the Nasonia circadian clock entrains to light cycles
  Dr R A Hut
Application Deadline: 29 June 2019
Our objective is to investigate how the Nasonia circadian clock entrains to light cycles and whether adaptive changes to this underlying entrainment mechanism have generated the latitudinal clines we observe in circadian light sensitivity in Europe and America.
  How do circadian and behaviour-driven metabolite rhythms influence health and ageing in humans
  Prof W Dunn, Dr R Dallmann
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Introduction and project rationale. Endogenous circadian rhythms are key in many physiological and behavioural processes in humans and changes in rhythms or desynchronization processes (for example, in shift workers) have been linked with adverse outcomes related to health and ageing.
  (BBSRC DTP) The role of clock dysfunction in obesity-related inflammation and insulin resistance
  Dr D Bechtold, Dr S Cruickshank, Dr I Iqbal
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Obesity is one of the biggest challenges to public health in the UK and across much of the world. The major threat is in obesity-related metabolic disturbances, which drive insulin resistance, type-2 diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.
