  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.
  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.
  Molecular genetic characterization of Drosophila reproductive behaviours for exploitation in insect population control
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr M Soller
Applications accepted all year round
Female reproductive behaviours in most insects profoundly change after mating leading to rejection of courting males and induction of egg laying.
  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.
  Network interactions shape the circadian clock in Drosophila melanogaster
  Dr E Rosato, Prof C P Kyriacou
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
The circadian clock is an endogenous mechanism that synchronizes almost all behaviour and physiology with the Earth’s 24 hour environmental cycles.
  Homeostatic balancing of neuronal excitation and inhibition in vivo
  Dr A Lin
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  Imaging neurotransmitter release to measure synaptic plasticity underlying associative memory
  Dr A Lin
Applications accepted all year round
How does the brain encode memories? We think learning occurs by changes in the strength of synaptic connections between neurons, but the precise mechanisms by which this synaptic plasticity occurs is often unknown.
  EngD and PhD Studentships: Centre for Doctoral Training in Future Innovation in Non-Destructive evaluation (FIND)
 The Centre for Doctoral Training in Future Innovation in Non-Destructive evaluation (FIND) is a partnership between a group of leading universities (Bristol, Imperial College London, Manchester, Nottingham, Strathclyde or Warwick) offering a 4-year industrially-linked doctoral training programme designed to launch you into an engineering career.
  Neural circuitry underlying goal directed search behaviour in Drosophila larvae
  Dr C Larsen, Dr M Meyer
Applications accepted all year round
Animals including humans make choices continuously based in past experience, present sensory input and internal state. A major goal in neuroscience is to identify the neural circuits underlying goal directed choices and to elucidate the neural computation driving goal orientated behaviour.
  Regulation of cancer growth by Rho GTPase and cytoskeletal signalling
  Dr A Elbediwy, Mr P Waller, Dr H Ashrafi
Applications accepted all year round
What is the reason why cells can suddenly switch to uncontrolled cellular growth? What causes the normal formation of cellular contacts and organs to stop growing when reaching their normal size to ignore normal signals and multiply uncontrollably?.
