  Cognitive control over feeding behaviour: The impact of prefrontal inputs onto hypothalamic MCH populations
  Dr J Apergis-Schoute, Dr T V Gerdjikov
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
The prefrontal cortex (PFC) is critical for optimising behavioural outcomes by prioritising choices relevant to an animal’s well-being.
  Prefrontal control of hypothalamic feeding circuits: Balancing executive control of eating
  Dr J Apergis-Schoute, Dr T Gerdjikov
Applications accepted all year round
Binge-eating disorder and Anorexia Nervosa are physically debilitating eating disorders where advanced stages of the disease can result in a number of health-related consequences including a myriad of obesity-related diseases and extreme malnutrition, respectively.
  Understanding social, genetic and environmental risks factors across eating disorders.
  Dr G Breen, Prof J Treasure
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
Eating disorders are severe psychiatric illnesses associated with greatly reduced quality of life (Ágh et al., 2016) and increased mortality, rendering them the most lethal psychiatric disorders (Chesney, Goodwin, & Fazel, 2014).
  Rhythmic control of energy balance - to understand how our internal clocks regulate energy metabolism
  Dr D Bechtold, Prof D Ray
Applications accepted all year round
24-hour rhythms are present in virtually all aspects of our behaviour and physiology. These rhythms are underpinned by circadian clocks that run throughout the body, and act within each tissue to orchestrate many organ functions and rhythmic activities (e.g.
  Microstructure and macrostructure of low protein-induced feeding patterns
  Dr J McCutcheon
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Understanding how particular diets affect eating and drinking behaviour is a fundamental biological question as well as one with huge implications for health.
  Impulsivity in decision making: investigating the relationship between inhibitory control and rational decision-making in different contexts and modalities
  Dr P Warren, Dr J McBride
Applications accepted all year round
Impulsivity plays an important role in healthy behaviour, but it can also be dysfunctional and has been linked to mania, substance abuse, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, pathological gambling, and eating-disorders (e.g., De Wit, 2009; Evenden, 1999; Moller et al., 2001, Verdejo, Lawrence, & Clark, 2008).
  PhD Studentship applications 2019
The Fisheries Society of the British Isles (FSBI) call for PhD Studentship applications 2019. The Fisheries Society of the British Isles (FSBI) offers up to two competitively awarded MPhil/PhD studentships annually.
  Structural biology of the intrinsically disordered protein SH2B1
  Prof M P Williamson
Applications accepted all year round
Signalling between the outside of the cell and the inside uses a complicated network of interacting systems. One common signalling mechanism uses receptor tyrosine kinases.
