  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?.
  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: 12 May 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.
  MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT: Developing Drosophila as a model to study the molecular and behavioural changes underlying Parkinson’s disease
  Dr J Hodge
Applications accepted all year round
Start 23 September 2019. This MSc by Research is a laboratory-based project which offers the exciting opportunity to spend 1 year in one of our State-of-the-Art laboratories (plus 1 year thesis writing) at the University of Bristol and experience life as a researcher.
  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.
  A chemical sensor to detect active metabolites linked to the pathogenesis of neurodegenerative disorders
  Dr A Hudson, Prof F Giorgini
Application Deadline: 25 April 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.
  Dynamics and Control of Flapping Wing Micro Air Vehicles Inspired by Monarch Butterflies
  Prof T Lee
Applications accepted all year round
The Flight Dynamics and Control Laboratory (http://fdcl.seas.gwu.edu) at The George Washington University, Washington DC, USA is looking for a doctoral candidate in robotics and control.
  Revealing the Ancestral Circadian Clock - to start October 2019 - for an MSc by Dissertation (MSD)
  Dr M Jones, Dr F Prischi
Application Deadline: 24 April 2019
Circadian clocks are the underlying cause of jetlag, but they also play vital roles in metabolism and physiology in animals, plants, and bacteria.
  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.
  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.
