  Using the fly kidney to develop new treatments for genetic kidney diseases
  Prof A Ong, Dr N Bulgakova
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Polycystic kidney disease is the most common hereditary cause of kidney failure in man. It comprises a spectrum of diseases of which Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease (ADPKD) is the most common form in adults and Nephronophthisis (NPHP) the most common form in children.
  Biomass Combustion Ash in the Removal of Micro-pollutants from Water
  Dr S Soltani
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The UK is committed to reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 80% compared to the 1990 emission levels by the year 2050. Negative emission technologies such as biomass combustion with carbon capture is vital to meet the Paris Agreement climate targets.
  Sociobiology on the fly; understanding social interactions in multispecies groups
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Dr A Bretman, Dr X Harrison
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The effects of social environments on individuals are widespread, even in species not classically thought of as social (Bailey and Moore 2018).
  Calcined clays as a reactive alternative to fly ash as a binder in Portland cement concrete
  Dr M Tyrer
Application Deadline: 14 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

A fully-funded PhD studentship in partnership with BRE Trust https://www.bretrust.org.uk/) is available to study the use of naturally occurring clays as reactive (pozzolanic) materials for low carbon cement production.
  Fly, mouse and computational modelling of the effect of Alzheimer’s disease on clock neuron excitabilit
  Dr J Hodge, Prof K Tsaneva-Atanasova
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) involves amyloid-B and tau accumulation resulting in memory, sleep and circadian rhythm loss. How this occurs is unknown hampering the development of effective AD drugs.
  Mapping the 3D structure of the gut to investigate inter-organ signalling in humans and flies
  Research Group: Gut Signalling & Metabolism
  Dr I Miguel-Aliaga, Dr D O'Regan
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The gut has a complex 3D structure, forming a looping folded path inside the abdomen.
  Watching the Hippo pathway in real time in growing organs
  Dr K. Harvey
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Sentence planning in bilingual speakers: Incrementality and adaptation in native and non-native language production.
  Dr A Konopka
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

How do speakers put thoughts into words? Native speakers normally plan what they are going to say incrementally.
  Drosophila as a model to study redox signalling and diet-induced obesity in ageing
  Research Group: Redox Metabolism
  Dr H Cocheme
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD Studentship is available under the supervision of Dr Helena Cochemé (Redox Metabolism Group) at the MRC London Institute of Medical Sciences, Imperial College London.
  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

Funding Type

PhD Type

Female reproductive behaviours in most insects profoundly change after mating leading to rejection of courting males and induction of egg laying.
