  The breakdown of neurovascular coupling in the diseased state specifically Epilepsy and Alzheimer’s disease
  Dr J Berwick
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Epilepsy is the most common neurological condition in the UK, affecting 1 – 2 % of the population. Epilepsies often involve only a small area of the brain - the epileptic focus – and the abnormal activity can propagate out from there.
  Development of a treatment for drug-resistant childhood epilepsy caused by potassium channel dysfunction.
  Dr J D Lippiat, Dr S Clapcote, Dr S Muench
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gain-of-function mutations in the human gene KCNT1, which encodes the KNa1.1 sodium-activated potassium channel, cause severe childhood epilepsy that cannot be controlled by current medication.
  Role of glutamate receptor dynamics in synaptic plasticity
  Dr I Greger
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Information transfer in the brain occurs at synapses, where memories are stored as a result of synaptic plasticity processes. AMPA-type glutamate-receptors (AMPARs), the main mediators of signal transmission, centrally contribute to synaptic plasticity.
  Biomedical research in a simple non-animal model
  Prof R S B Williams
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research in biomedical neuroscience generally employs mammalian tissue culture experiments to look at disease-related neuronal cell function.
  CDKL5’s role in neuronal homeostatic plasticity
  Dr S Ultanir, Dr J Burrone
Application Deadline: 12 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

A joint Crick-King’s College London funded PhD position for the 2019 programme between the labs of Sila Ultanir and Juan Burrone.
  Inflammation, the immune system and neurological disease
  Prof S Allan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inflammation is now recognised as a key contributor to neuronal injury in both acute and chronic neurodegenerative disease. Many studies in this area have focussed on the post-injury inflammatory response and in particular on the role of specific cytokines in the central nervous system.
  BBSRC MIBTP - Identification of pathways deregulating neuronal ELAV/Hu RNA binding proteins and alternative splicing in neurodegeneration
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr M Soller, Dr M Tomlinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

ELAV/Hu proteins comprise a family of highly conserved neuronal RNA binding proteins important for the development of the nervous system and for neuronal functions.
  mRNA epigenetics: Charaterization of a novel layer of gene regulation for essential brain functions
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr M Soller, Dr PG Grzechnik
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

For over 40 years we know about modified nucleotides in mRNA, but the functions for these essential modifications are largely elusive.
  Developing new adaptive and machine learning algorithms to successfully decode brain signals across subjects
  Dr M Arvaneh
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A brain decoding model aims at predicting what sensory stimulus is received (e.g. visual stimuli, different images), which mental state is experienced (i.e.
  Homeostatic balancing of neuronal excitation and inhibition in vivo
  Dr A Lin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neuronal excitation and inhibition are very carefully balanced in the brain, and perturbed excitation/inhibition (E/I) balance has been linked to diseases such as epilepsy, autism and schizophrenia.
