  Climate Change Solutions: Developmental Programming of Fish Thermal Tolerance Limits
  Dr G Galli, Dr H Shiels
Applications accepted all year round
Climate change poses a significant threat to global biodiversity. Conservation strategies are critically dependent on a thorough understanding of the effects of fluctuating environments on animal morphology, physiology and behaviour.
  Developmental programming of cardiorespiratory physiology
  Dr A Coney
Applications accepted all year round
Developmental programming has the ability to change physiological function. We recently demonstrated changes in sympathetic nerve innervation and activity that would predispose in later life to hypertension.
  Born Talking: using birth cohort data to investigate risk factors and outcomes for developmental speech and language difficulties (McAllisterJU18SF1)
  Dr Jan Mcallister
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
Policy and practice in many areas of health and education have been informed by results from birth cohorts, which are longitudinal datasets that follow large numbers of individuals from birth and throughout their lives.
  Understanding signalling networks underpinning key developmental processes during plant evolution
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr J C Coates
Applications accepted all year round
Plants first appeared on land almost half a billion years ago. All land plants likely evolved from a single aquatic green algal ancestor.
  Using Statistical Techniques in Genetic Epidemiology to Investigate the Developmental Origins of Health and Disease (DOHaD)
  Prof D Evans
Applications accepted all year round
There is a well-documented observational relationship between low birthweight infants and increased risk of disease in later life (e.g.
  Investigating the interplay of maternal obesity and Neuro-immune interactions in neuropsychiatric disorders: a developmental approach
  Dr E Mire, Prof J Hall
Application Deadline: 20 March 2019
Growing evidence suggest that gene-environment interactions are critical in the pathogenesis of neuropsychiatric disorders. Maternal metabolic conditions, including obesity and diabetes, which are associated with chronic sub-threshold inflammation, are established risks factors for these disorders in the offspring.
  PhD position in Developmental Neurobiology: to understand the role and mechanism of action of the Prdm12 gene
  Dr E Bellefroid, Dr A Garcia-Pino
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
We are seeking highly motivated candidates to join us on a project beginning in 2019 on the molecular mechanisms of sensory neurogenesis.
  Pronoun Resolution in Children - Investigating the Developmental Trajectory Towards Adult-like Pronoun Interpretation
  Dr I Cunnings
Applications accepted all year round
This project investigates how language processing develops in young children, and in particular examines how children interpret pronouns such as ‘he’ or ‘she’.
  Signalling pathways maintaining human embryonic stem cells
  Prof S J Kimber, Prof D Brison
Applications accepted all year round
The aim of this project is to determine the function of novel genes predicted to have critical roles in preimplantation human development and in disease in later life.
  Clinical Genetics: Building the skull – normal and abnormal development
  Prof A Wilkie, Dr S Twigg
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
Working closely with the craniofacial teams based in Oxford and other UK units, we specialise in the application of whole exome and genome sequencing to children born with a serious malformation of the skull termed craniosynostosis.
