  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.
  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.
  Evolutionary Conflict Over Maternal Diet
  Dr J Perry, Dr S Wigby
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
A key assumption in animal nutrition is that, when given a choice, individuals will choose optimal diets that maximize their reproduction and lifespan.
  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.
  Bowel and Cancer Research funded PhD studentship: A Novel Genetic System to Study Tumour Heterogeneity and Clonal Competition in Gastrointestinal Tract Cancers
  Research Group: Barts Cancer Institute
  Dr P Ribeiro, Dr S McDonald
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019
A graduate with an interest in biology, genetics and their application for the study of the basic mechanisms of cancer, with or is expecting at least an upper second class honours degree in Biology, Genetics or a revelant subject area, is required for this project aimed at developing a novel genetic system to study tumour heterogeneity and clonal competition in gastrointestinal cancers.
  China Scholarship Council PhD Programme: Biological and molecular mechanisms underlying a new syndromic form of X-linked intellectual disability
  Dr D M F Van Aalten
Application Deadline: 11 February 2019
Intellectual disability (ID) and concomitant developmental delay are severe neurodevelopmental conditions which affect approximately 1% of the world population.
