  Understanding the effects of brain disease on what functional brain imaging signals are telling us about neuronal activity
  Dr C Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Functional brain imaging methods such as functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) have already revolutionized how we can study the processes and functioning of the healthy human brain and are making an increasing impact on our understanding on what goes wrong in disease of the brain.
  Fractional order modelling of neurons
  Dr S Hadjiloucas, Dr E Delivopoulos
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fractional order calculus (integro-differential equations that are of non-integral order) is an emerging methodology with wide applications across all areas of Physics and Engineering.
  Investigating neuronal patterning and development
  Dr F Mackenzie, Prof A Walker, Dr N Hill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 3-year PhD will study molecular and cellular mechanisms of neuronal patterning and neural development using ex vivo/in vitro methods (mouse/human tissue/cells) and/or in vivo methods (invertebrates).
  Characterisation of the neuronal receptor for soluble amyloid precursor protein: a route to new therapeutic targets for Alzheimer’s disease
  Prof N Hooper, Prof M J Humphries
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the commonest form of dementia for which currently there is no means of stopping or even slowing the disease.
  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.
  Targeting Astrocyte-Mediated Mechanisms Leading to Neuronal Toxicity in Motor Neurone Disease
  Dr Y Buskila
Application Deadline: 30 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project, we propose to investigate the mechanisms by which astrocytes impact motor neuron hyperexcitability in Motor Neurone Disease (MND).
  Neuronal Dynamics from a complex network perspective
  Prof A Politi, Dr E Ullner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The human brain is possibly the most intriguing complex system we know. The combination of experimental work and theoretical approaches has gained many insides in the last century but we are still far away from a real understanding.
  Ion channel clustering in neuronal membranes
  Dr S M Prince, Prof R Ford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of the study is to investigate the organization of ion channels in the membranes of excitable cells by scaffold proteins, and to discover how the properties of the channels are modified by these interactions.
  MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT: Dissecting principles of long-range neuronal connectivity in mammalian motor circuits
  Dr P Chadderton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Start 23 September 2019. This MSc by Research is a laboratory-based project which offers the exciting opportunity to spend 1 year in one of our State-of-the-Art laboratories (plus 1 year thesis writing) at the University of Bristol and experience life as a researcher.
  Mechanisms of neuronal protection in diabetic neuropathy.
  Dr L Donaldson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sensory neurons are particularly vulnerable to damage. This is now most commonly found in diabetes mellitus where hyperglycaemia results in the production of several factors (e.g.
