  Clock gene polymorphisms in Drosophila; natural selection and function
  Prof C P Kyriacou, Dr E Rosato
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
The molecular function of circadian clock genes are well understood and conserved from flies to mammals, but the implications of natural variation in clock gene sequences are only recently becoming evident.
  PhD in Psychological Medicine & Clinical Neurosciences - Analysing the mechanisms underlying dystonia pathogenesis through characterisation of a Drosophila melanogaster model of Myoclonus Dystonia
  Dr K Peall, Dr O Peters
Application Deadline: 27 February 2019
ackground. Dystonia is one of the most common movement disorders, affecting ~1% of the population worldwide. Well recognised forms include writer’s cramp, although more severe forms are frequently observed.
  (BBSRC DTP) Probing Regulatory Networks setting Notch signalling levels in vivo in Drosophila and Zebrafish.
  Dr M Baron, Dr S Herbert, Prof S Hubbard
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Development of organisms and maintenance of healthy tissues depends on proper control of cell to cell communication networks that control cell fate and behaviour.
  Profiling stem cell epigenetic transitions within the Drosophila hematopoietic stem cell niche
  Dr P Badenhorst, Prof C Bonifer
Applications accepted all year round
The self-renewal and differentiation of stem cells is controlled by signals derived from the microenvironment or “niche”. The paired hematopoietic organs of the Drosophila genetic model organism are a well-characterized system in which the regulation of stem cell behaviour within a niche can be genetically dissected.
  BBSRC MIBTP - Structural Brain Plasticity in Health, Regeneration and Repair
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr A Hidalgo
Applications accepted all year round
The brain is plastic. neurons and glia make adjustments in cell size and shape (dendrites, axons), in synapses, and in cell number, throughout life.
  Neural circuitry underlying goal directed search behaviour in Drosophila larvae
  Dr C Larsen, Dr M Meyer
Applications accepted all year round
Animals including humans make choices continuously based in past experience, present sensory input and internal state. A major goal in neuroscience is to identify the neural circuits underlying goal directed choices and to elucidate the neural computation driving goal orientated behaviour.
  Nutritional Immunity in Drosophila - identifying the underlying nutrient-sensing control of host immune regulators and investigating how altered nutrients affect pathogen prosperity
  Dr M Piper, Dr L Wakeling
Applications accepted all year round
PhD Student Position. Nutritional Immunity in Drosophila. Monash University, Australia and Newcastle University, UK.
  Molecular genetic characterization of Drosophila reproductive behaviours for exploitation in insect population control
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr M Soller
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Female reproductive behaviours in most insects profoundly change after mating leading to rejection of courting males and induction of egg laying.
  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.
  An in vivo genetic screen of lung function candidate genes using tissue specific RNAi in Drosophila melanogaster
  Dr M Georgiou, Dr I Sayers
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a major cause of worldwide mortality and morbidity. Current strategies in management depend on accurate diagnosis, followed by appropriate treatment.
