  Clock gene polymorphisms in Drosophila; natural selection and function
  Prof C P Kyriacou, Dr E Rosato
Application Deadline: 5 May 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.
  Profiling stem cell epigenetic transitions within the Drosophila hematopoietic stem cell niche
  Dr P Badenhorst
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.
  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
Applications accepted all year round
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: 5 May 2019
The circadian clock is an endogenous mechanism that synchronizes almost all behaviour and physiology with the Earth’s 24 hour environmental cycles.
  Multimerisation of ELAV/Hu proteins – a key mechanism ensuring specificity for RNA recognition in health and disease
  Dr M Soller, Dr T Knowles
Applications accepted all year round
Aims. Determine the structure of the ELAV dodecameric complex bound to target RNA by cryoEM and functionally probe interaction interfaces in vitro and in vivo in transgenic Drosophila models for neurodegeneration and cancer.
  PhD student position: to identify the mechanisms underlying adaptation in the Drosophila ear
  Dr J Clemens
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
The European Neuroscience Institute Göttingen invites applications for a. PhD student position. in project A10 of CRC 889. limited to 3.5 years, part-time (65 %) | salary according to TV-L.
  Mitochondrial toxicity in Drosophila models of neurodegenerative diseases
  Dr L Miguel Martins
Application Deadline: 30 April 2019
The MRC Toxicology Unit is a leading international research institute within the School of Biological Sciences in the University of Cambridge.
  Defining the metabolic determinants of intestinal stem cell homeostasis
  Dr A Rufini, Prof F Giorgini
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
The intestine is the fastest renewing organ. This ability is enabled by the presence of fast proliferating intestinal stem cells (ISCs) that reside in the crypts of Lieberkühn at the base of the intestinal villi.
