  Primed for parasitism: pathogenic nematodes tailor their response to host plant exudates.
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Prof P E Urwin, Dr K. Field
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Background. Plant-parasitic nematodes are a major threat to global food security, causing billions of dollars of crop losses to agriculture throughout the world.
  Apoplastic signalling in the interaction between plant-parasitic nematodes and their host plants
  Research Group: Centre for Plant Sciences
  Prof P E Urwin
Application Deadline: 20 December 2018
Plant-parasitic nematodes are economically important crop pathogens that cause billions of dollars of crop losses to agriculture throughout the world.
  Using Reverse Metagenomics to characterise nematode communities and soil health (YUUBIO19ARIES)
  Prof D W Yu, Prof M Hutchings
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Scientific background. Free-living nematodes are present in huge numbers in the soil. A few species are estimated to cause tens of billions ($USD) of damage to crops globally each year.
  Environmental maternal effects and intergenerational inheritance
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr A Pires da Silva, Dr R Allaby
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Project Highlights. Mechanisms by which organisms rapidly respond to sudden environmental changes. Mother senses environmental stress signals to produce stress-resistant progeny.
  The Biology of Parasitism in Parasitic Nematodes
  Prof M Viney
Applications accepted all year round
We work on the biology of parasitic nematode worms, particularly Strongyloides spp. The recent, detailed characterisation of the Strongyloides genome (Hunt et al.
  H3.3 and its chaperones in the nervous system
  Dr D Bano
Applications accepted all year round
The German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE) investigates the causes of diseases of the nervous system and develops strategies for prevention, treatment and care.
  How do cells generate functional asymmetries?
  Dr J Rodriguez
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
The lab (https://www.staff.ncl.ac.uk/josana.rodriguez/) enjoys state of the art equipment and is situated in the ambitious and supportive research environment of the Institute for Cell and Molecular Biosciences (https://www.ncl.ac.uk/camb/), within the Medical School at Newcastle University (Newcastle upon Tyne, UK).
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Understanding asymmetric cell divisions at the onset of life
  Dr J Rodriguez, Prof M Herbert
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
To generate a complex organism from a single-cell embryo, cells divide asymmetrically acquiring structural and functional differences.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Elucidating new redox-signalling mechanisms that act to maintain healthy tissues during ageing
  Prof E Veal, Prof M Jackson, Dr N Conlon
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Project Summary. This iCASE MRC studentship provides an exciting opportunity to use a diverse range of cutting-edge techniques, and exploit the advantages of different model systems, to identify new molecular mechanisms, that protect against ageing/age-associated diseases.
  Building a nervous system: Analysis of transport and assembly mechanisms in synapse formation
  Dr M Kittelmann, Prof I Bermudez, Prof A McGregor
Application Deadline: 3 January 2019
In order for animals to react to an internal or external stimulus with the appropriate behaviour, the input signals need to be received, processes and transmitted correctly to the effector cells, e.g.
