  Neural basis underlying mating decisions in fruit flies
  Dr C Rezaval
Applications accepted all year round
Mate choice is an essential behavioural process with profound consequences in evolution. How do animals choose with whom to mate? How do they evaluate the features of a potential mate to maximise their reproductive success?.
  *IAPETUS* Gene expression and sexual selection in sex role reversed flies
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Prof MG Ritchie
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Empid flies (commonly known as dance flies) are exceptional in displaying elaborate sexually selected morphologies and behaviours in females.
  Development of an invertebrate model of alternating hemiplegia of childhood
  Research Group: School of Biomedical Sciences
  Dr S Clapcote, Dr A Bretman, Prof R E Isaac, Dr D I Lewis
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Heterozygous mutations in ATP1A3, encoding the Na+,K+-ATPase (NKA) alpha3 subunit, are identified as the cause of a phenotypic continuum of ATP1A3-related…
  Control of tissue growth and cancer by the Hippo pathway
  Dr K. Harvey, Dr C Poon
Applications accepted all year round
A new frontier in biomedical research will involve watching individual proteins work in real time, in living organs. Traditionally, researchers have drawn conclusions about gene function using indirect techniques that only allow us to infer what a gene normally does, without actually watching it work.
  How does the brain make decisions when faced with conflicting options?
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr C Rezaval
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Animals engage in daily activities that are essential for survival and reproduction, such as feeding, mating or fighting for resources.
  Stressed! How do animals cope with what life throws at them?
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Dr A Bretman, Dr E.J.. Duncan, Dr S M Sait
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Animals face many environmental stresses, and this is only likely to get worse as we face an era of rapid climate change. This brings into sharp focus the need to understand what the responses to stressors are and what molecular mechanisms underpin the strategies animals use to cope with stress.
  A chemical sensor to detect active metabolites linked to the pathogenesis of neurodegenerative disorders
  Dr A Hudson, Prof F Giorgini
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Kynurenine is an intermediate in the pathway that converts the amino acid, tryptophan, to the redox enzyme, nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+/NADH) - an essential molecule of life.
  Fluorescence-based sensing of active metabolites linked to the pathogenesis of neurodegenerative disorders
  Dr A Hudson, Prof F Giorgini
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Kynurenine is an intermediate in the pathway that converts the amino acid, tryptophan, to the redox enzyme, nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+/NADH) - an essential molecule of life.
  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.
  ChromDesign-ITN: Role of transcription and Polycomb proteins in 3D genome organisation and cell differentiation (subproject ESR11); Hosting institution: Institute of Human Genetics (IGH-CNRS), Montpellier, France
  Prof G Cavalli, Dr Luciano DiCroce
Application Deadline: 21 December 2018
"ChromDesign” is a European innovative and interdisciplinary Research and Training network, which aims to characterize the impact of the 3D chromatin organization on gene regulation during cellular differentiation and in several human disorders, and to train junior researchers in the biomedical field, either in academia or in the private sector.
