  Glial cells in nervous system development and regeneration in the fruit-fly Drosophila
  Dr A Hidalgo
Applications accepted all year round
Looking for keen PhD students to search for the molecular mechanisms underlying glial function in repair and regeneration in the nervous system using the fruit-fly Drosophila as a model organism.
  Tryptophan metabolism and fruit fly behaviour: implications for psychosis
  Prof F Giorgini, Prof C P Kyriacou, Mr C Breda
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
The kynurenine pathway of tryptophan degrades contains several neuroactive metabolites which have been implicated in the pathogenesis of psychotic and neurodegenerative disorders.
  BBSRC MIBTP - Structural Brain Plasticity in Health, Regeneration and Repair
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr A Hidalgo
Applications accepted all year round
The brain is plastic. neurons and glia make adjustments in cell size and shape (dendrites, axons), in synapses, and in cell number, throughout life.
  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.
  Thermodynamic modelling of alkali-activated materials
  Dr R Myers
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
The Industrial Ecology Team at the University of Edinburgh is seeking an outstanding PhD candidate to apply thermodynamic modelling to alkali-activated materials.
  Defining the metabolic determinants of intestinal stem cell homeostasis
  Dr A Rufini, Prof F Giorgini
Application Deadline: 6 January 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.
  An in vivo genetic screen of lung function candidate genes using tissue specific RNAi in Drosophila melanogaster
  Dr M Georgiou, Dr I Sayers
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a major cause of worldwide mortality and morbidity. Current strategies in management depend on accurate diagnosis, followed by appropriate treatment.
  Cancer Research UK funded PhD studentship: Defining the Rules of Cellular Darwinism
  Research Group: Barts Cancer Institute
  Dr P Ribeiro, Dr P R Cutillas
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
We are now accepting applications for a Cancer Research UK funded PhD studentship to start in September 2019. Barts Cancer Institute has an international reputation for cancer research, with world renowned experts in the field.
  Molecular genetic characterization of Drosophila reproductive behaviours for exploitation in insect population control
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr M Soller
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
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: 6 January 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.
