  Autophagy and neuroinflammation in Parkinson’s
  Dr J D Lane
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Autophagy is an essential catabolic process that protects cells against diverse stresses. Autophagy prevents many human diseases including neurodegeneration, so a complete understanding of this process is needed.
  Mechanisms of selective cell vulnerability to protein assembly propagation in neurodegenerative disease
  Dr B Falcon
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The assembly of a small number of proteins into amyloid structures within neurons and, in some cases, glia underlies neurodegenerative disease.
  Resolving heterogeneity in a stem cell population
  Dr R Lovell-Badge
Application Deadline: 12 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 4-year PhD studentship is offered in Dr Robin Lovell-Badge’’s Group based at the Francis Crick Institute (the Crick). Adult Stem Cells (SCs) are tissue specific undifferentiated cells characterised by their self-renewal and differentiation properties.
  Genetic and molecular mechanisms of nervous regeneration and repair
  Dr A Hidalgo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project will aim to discover novel molecular mechanisms that could promote central nervous system regeneration. The focus will be on how neurons and glia interact to match their cell populations and functions, and on the regenerative potential of glial cells.
  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

PhD Type

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.
  MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT: Modulation of Brain Energy Metabolism by Astrocytic G-protein-coupled Receptors
  Dr A Teschemacher
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Endoplasmic Reticulum Transport and Morphoregulation in Neuron (Patho) Physiology
  Dr E Avezov
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Endoplasmic Reticulum (ER) is a multifunctional organelle, shaped as a contiguous network of membranous pipes extending throughout the cell periphery.
  Basic and clinical studies on spinal cord injury
  Dr G Shea
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Spinal cord injury has a devastating effect on affected individuals, who are often of working age and subject to a lifetime of dependency and debilitation.
