Deficiencies of thyroid hormone, in particular subclinical hypothyroidism is common throughout the globe. Adult-onset hypothyroidism affects around 8-10% of the population and has been associated with reproductive disorders, anxiety, depression and impairment of memory.
  The role of tumour microenvironment in hormone refractory prostate cancer
  Research Group: Edinburgh Cancer Research Centre
  Dr B Qian
Application Deadline: 15 February 2019
This is one of several projects available on a CRUK funded PhD programme at the Cancer Research UK Edinburgh Centre, which is part of the Institute of Genetics and Molecular Medicine (IGMM) at the University of Edinburgh.
  Molecular mechanism of transcriptional regulation by nuclear hormone receptors
  Dr E Cheung
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
PhD studentship in Biomedical Sciences (to be admitted in mid-August 2019). The laboratory of Professor Edwin Cheung is seeking highly motivated PhD candidates to perform research on gene regulation in breast and prostate cancer.
  Control of Parathyroid Hormone Secretion
  Dr D Ward, Dr J Bruce
Applications accepted all year round
The regulation of parathyroid hormone (PTH) secretion is of fundamental importance for calcium homeostasis and in mineral conditions affecting bone and the kidneys.
  FOXA1 mutations in Lobular Breast Cancer: Reprogramming Responses to Tamoxifen
  Prof D Heery, Dr S Johnston
Applications accepted all year round
Tumours of the breast are often hormone-dependent, meaning their growth is driven by steroid hormones such as estrogen. This hormone acts upon the estrogen receptor (ER), which together with other transcription factors such as FOXA1 drives tumour growth.
  Structure and function of neurohypophysial hormone receptors
  Prof M Wheatley
Applications accepted all year round
The neurohypophysial peptide hormones vasopressin (AVP) and oxytocin (OT) regulate amongst other things diuresis and lactation respectively.
  Implementing clinical practice guidelines
  Dr S MacLennan, Dr S MacLennan, Dr E Duncan, Prof J N'Dow
Application Deadline: 29 March 2019
To ensure that prostate cancer patients have the best treatments and outcomes, their care ought to be based on the best available evidence.
  Understanding signalling by a novel hormone receptor in the brain
  Dr N Vasudevan, Prof P G Knight
Application Deadline: 1 April 2019
"Our laboratory is interested in how hormones, in particular oestrogen, signal and how this signal drives social behaviours in animals.
  How does the one-humped Arabian camel survive in the desert without drinking?
  Prof D Murphy, Dr M Greenwood
Applications accepted all year round
Whilst water balance is aggressively defended in all mammals, this is all the more so in the one-humped Arabian camel, which has a remarkable capacity to thrive in the hot, arid conditions of the Arabian deserts (1), and to survive extended periods of dehydration (2).
  The physiological roles of the Rasd1 interactome in the central control of hydromineral homeostasis
  Prof D Murphy, Dr M Greenwood
Applications accepted all year round
The brain mechanisms responsible for osmotic stability are located in the hypothalamo-neurohypophyseal system (HNS), which consists of magnocellular neurons located in the supraoptic nucleus (SON) and paraventicular nucleus (PVN), the axons of which terminate in the posterior pituitary gland.
