  4 Year Wellcome Trust PhD Programme: Biological and molecular mechanisms underlying a new syndromic form of X-linked intellectual disability
  Dr D M F Van Aalten
Application Deadline: 14 December 2018
Intellectual disability (ID) and concomitant developmental delay are severe neurodevelopmental conditions which affect approximately 1% of the world population.
  China Scholarship Council PhD Programme: Biological and molecular mechanisms underlying a new syndromic form of X-linked intellectual disability
  Dr D M F Van Aalten
Application Deadline: 14 January 2019
Intellectual disability (ID) and concomitant developmental delay are severe neurodevelopmental conditions which affect approximately 1% of the world population.
  The genetic basis of cognitive impairment in intellectual disability and schizophrenia
  Prof C Inglehearn, Dr M Ali
Applications accepted all year round
Schizophrenia is a chronic mental health condition affecting 1% of human populations, with symptoms that include visual and auditory hallucinations, delusions and disordered thought, leading to disruption of the sense of self.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Functional Characterization of a Truncation Mutation Associated with Intellectual Disability
  Dr S Clapcote, Prof C Inglehearn, Dr M Ali
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Intellectual disability (ID) is a common neurodevelopmental disorder with an onset of cognitive impairment before the age of 18 years and is characterized by significant limitations in intellectual functioning and adaptive behaviour.
  Pacing and performance in sports, rehabilitation, exercise and health (RDF19/HLS/SER/HETTINGA)
  Dr F Hettinga
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Recent research explored how athletes and exercisers alike regulate their exercise intensity. However, most studies and theories focused on (elite) athletes alone, and a gap of knowledge exists in our understanding of pacing and fatigue in special populations.
  Genetic contributions to neurodevelopmental disorders
  Dr D Newbury, Prof I Bermudez
Application Deadline: 3 January 2019
Neurodevelopmental disorders, such as Autistic Spectrum Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Intellectual Disability and Developmental Language Disorder are all known to have substantial and overlapping genetic risk contributions that, presumably, affect early brain development (Newbury, Monaco, Paracchini, 2014).
  A computational and mechanistic study of sodium-activated potassium channel function
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr J D Lippiat, Dr A Kalli, Dr S Muench
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The sodium-activated potassium channel KNa1.1 (KCNT1, Slack, Slo2.2) is found in neurons and its function is to conduct ions across neuronal membranes.
  Exploring the pathogenic roles of Rab GTPases in models of taupathy
  Prof F Giorgini, Prof C P Kyriacou
Application Deadline: 28 January 2019
Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common neurodegenerative disorder and the predominant cause of dementia. The main pathological hallmarks of the disease in the brain are the presence of amyloid plaques and neurofibrilliary tangles composed of hyperphosphorylated forms of tau (P-tau).
  Chromatin remodelling in health and disease: determining the role of ATRX in the maintenance of chromatin and how mutations perturb disparate nuclear nuclear processes and lead to human disease
  Dr R Gibbons, Prof D Higgs
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
It has become apparent that the regulation of chromatin structure is of paramount importance in a wide variety of fundamental nuclear processes including gene expression, DNA replication, repair and recombination.
  Molecular dissection of protein palmitoylation in neurons
  Dr M Collins
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Palmitoylation (S-acylation), the only known reversible lipid modification of proteins, is an important regulator of protein localisation and function.
