Successfully added to shortlist

Discovering new DNA repair enzymes using archaea as a model for mammals

This PhD research project will combine protein biochemistry and molecular biology methods, and will provide detailed training into how to analyse gene and protein function. Read more

QUADRAT DTP: Multitrophic responses to multitrophic conservation interventions: non-target species responses to biological eradications on an island

Non-native alien species are one of the main drivers of biodiversity loss, especially on islands. Eradication of such species, although controversial, remains the only effective means by which to prevent extinctions and restore native island ecosystem functioning. Read more

Control of developmental timing in mammals

How biological timing is encoded in the genome is a fundamental question in biology. In development, the pace of developmental programs is a source of evolutionary change. Read more

Exploring the vocal learning behaviour of bats with a view to understanding human speech

  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
In speech acquisition, humans must employ vocal learning, making this a key trait for the understanding of the biology and evolution of speech and language. Read more

Determining the neural architecture of vocal learning in bats to shed light on human speech and language

  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
In speech acquisition, humans must employ vocal learning, making this a key trait for the understanding of the biology and evolution of speech and language. Read more

Modelling the role of L-type voltage-gated calcium channels (CACNA1C) in behaviour and mental health

Primary supervisor. Dr James Hodge (Bristol), Prof Jeremy Hall (Cardiff). CACNA1C regulates neuronal excitability underlying memory, sleep and circadian rhythms and has been associated with schizophrenia, autism, bipolar disorder and ADHD. Read more

Macroevolutionary patterns in mammalian locomotion

  Research Group: Interdisciplinary Centre for Ancient Life
PhD research in the lab of Dr. Katrina Jones investigating macroevolutionary patterns in mammalian locomotion. The lab uses a combination of quantitative shape analysis, biomechanics, and macroevolutionary analyses to understand major transitions in the evolution of mammals and their extinct relatives. Read more

QUADRAT DTP: Ecological drivers and conservation implications of parental care diversity in vertebrates

There are astonishing differences in whether, how, and how long for, animals care for their offspring. In most species, such as many marine fishes, parents abandon their fertilized eggs to their own destiny, which is mostly being eaten by predators. Read more

Biological Rhythms and Neuronal Pharmacology

We are pleased to offer the opportunity for a self-funded PhD student to join our research teams within the School of Pharmacy, University of Kent and the Department of Clinical Neurosciences, University of Oxford. Read more

Expanded potential stem cells for regenerative medicine, immunotherapy, and biotechnology

Embryonic stem cells (ES cells) and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS cells) are pluripotent and thus hold great promise in regenerative medicine, studying disease mechanisms and drug discovery. Read more
