  The New Iron Age: Investigating the impact of Brain Iron on Neurodegeneration.
  Dr G Waiter, Dr C McNeil
Application Deadline: 30 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will investigate the role of iron in brain ageing and provide insight into its influence on neurodegeneration and cognitive decline.
  Genetic and molecular mechanisms of brain structural plasticity and neurodegeneration
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr A Hidalgo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project will test the potential of a molecular mechanism that we recently discovered, in modulating brain structural plasticity versus neurodegeneration.
  13 ESR positions available within the HORIZON 2020 - Marie Sklodowska-Curie ITN-European Joint Doctorate TubInTrain: PhD programme in Chemistry and Biology of Neurodegeneration

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Horizon 2020 MSCA joint doctoral project TubInTrain (“Tuning Tubulin Dynamics and Interactions to Face Neurotoxicity.
  Investigating metabolic changes in neurodegeneration
  Dr F Mackenzie, Dr M Stolinski
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 3-year PhD will study the increasingly recognised association between metabolic disease and neurodegeneration using in vitro cell culture methods.
  Mitochondrial calcium in neurodegeneration (PhD in Biological Science at the MRC Mitochondrial Biology Unit)
  Dr A J Whitworth
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mitochondrial calcium plays a key role in a wide array of cellular homeostatic processes as diverse as bioenergetics and cell death, and has been linked to disease conditions as varied as cancer, ischemia-reperfusion injury and neurodegeneration (1-3).
  The importance of the DNA damage response in neurodegeneration
  Dr R Tuxworth
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

DNA damage occurs in early-stage neurodegenerative diseases. The response of neurons to the damage may contribute to disease progression by inducing senescence, cell-cycle and apoptosis.
  BBSRC MIBTP - Identification of pathways deregulating neuronal ELAV/Hu RNA binding proteins and alternative splicing in neurodegeneration
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr M Soller, Dr M Tomlinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

ELAV/Hu proteins comprise a family of highly conserved neuronal RNA binding proteins important for the development of the nervous system and for neuronal functions.
  Stress regulation of protein translation: role in cancer and neurodegeneration
  Dr A J Whitmarsh, Prof M Ashe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cells are subjected to a range of stresses that include physical injury, changes in oxygen levels or temperature, nutrient deprivation, radiation and infection.
  Medical Research Council (MRC) Parkinson’s Disease and Neurodegeneration PhD Programme 2019/2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are seeking bright and enthusiastic young students to join a new PhD programme at the MRC-PPU dedicated to understanding the cellular mechanisms underlying Parkinson's disease and other neurodegenerative diseases.
  Ion channel regulation in models of neurodegeneration
  Dr M Dallas, Prof G J Stephens, Dr A Bithell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ion channels are important regulators of cellular physiology. There is now growing awareness that these proteins are invovled in pathological states, with relation to neurodegeneration voltage-gated potassium and voltage-gated calicum channels have been implicated.
