  Investigating the pathophysiology of Motor Neuron Disease (MND/ALS) using rodent and human iPSC-based models
  Prof G Miles, Prof S Chandran
Application Deadline: 29 March 2019
There is growing evidence that early changes in neuronal function contribute to the pathogenesis of Motor Neuron Disease/Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (MND/ALS).
  Molecular and cell-biological mechanisms mediating establishment of neuron polarity during development
  Dr R Das, Dr C Francavilla
Applications accepted all year round
Background. Cells undergoing neuronal differentiation in the embryonic spinal cord delaminate from the neuroepithelium, resulting in loss of apical cell polarity.
  Understanding neuron connectivity in health and disease
  Dr F Dajas-Bailador
Applications accepted all year round
The ability to think, move, or sense the environment depends on the correct formation and subtle changes of neuronal circuits and their billions of connections.
  A 3D in vitro model of wound healing incorporating skin, nerves and immune cells
  Dr A M Rajnicek, Dr H M Wilson
Application Deadline: 29 March 2019
Diabetes, paralysis, being bed ridden and other conditions can result in chronic wounds that fail to heal, with significant personal consequences for patients and an annual cost of £4.5-5.1 billion annually (Guest et al., 2015) to the National Health Service.
  PhD in Dementia Research - Detecting dysfunction in the single-cell gene networks underlying Parkinson’s disease.
  Prof C Webber
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
Parkinson’s disease (PD) is the second most common neurodegenerative disorder and results from the selective loss of dopaminergic neurons within the Substantia nigra pars compacta.
  Neural circuitry underlying goal directed search behaviour in Drosophila larvae
  Dr C Larsen, Dr M Meyer
Applications accepted all year round
Animals including humans make choices continuously based in past experience, present sensory input and internal state. A major goal in neuroscience is to identify the neural circuits underlying goal directed choices and to elucidate the neural computation driving goal orientated behaviour.
  Developing a new learning algorithm for biologically inspired spiking neural networks
  Dr A Taherkhani, Prof TM McGinnity, Dr G Cosma
Applications accepted all year round
The brain’s processing ability to solve complex problems has inspired many researchers to investigate how the brain processes information, reasons and its learning mechanisms.
  Dynamics of a minimal neuronal network with multisynaptic dendrites
  Dr J Liu, Dr V Marra
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
Neurons are morphologically very complex cells with large arborisations that can extend for several millimetres. Communication between neurons relies on action potential driven release of neurotransmitter at specialised sites called synapses.
  Neural mechanisms of memory formation, consolidation and recall
  Prof R Quian Quiroga
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
Understanding how the firing of neurons underlies memory functions is one of the most important and challenging goals in neuroscience.
  Optogenenetic voltage reporting to understand cerebellar learning
  Dr R Empson
Applications accepted all year round
Cerebellar Purkinje neurons, the main output neuron of the cerebellar cortex, undergo a variety of forms of synaptic plasticity that are thought to underlie aspects of motor learning.
