  Developing optogenetic therapies for retinal degeneration
  Prof R Lucas, Dr Nina Milosavljevic
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Retinal degeneration is the leading cause of blindness in developed countries. The new exciting biological approach of optogenetic therapy in which ectopic expression of photosensitive proteins (photopigments) is used to restore photosensitivity, offers a potential breakthrough for treating these conditions.
  Molecular and genetic mechanisms of brain structural plasticity and neurodegeneration in the fruit-fly Drosophila.
  Dr A Hidalgo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The brain changes throughout life. brain plasticity enables the brain to adjust in response to experience, whereas during aging natural neurodegeneration takes over.
  Insulin signalling and behavioural rigidity
  Dr J Glennon
Application Deadline: 22 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Evolutionary success depends on being flexible and adapting to your environment. Our research suggests that insulin signalling is a key mechanism underlying behavioural inflexibility in Alzheimer’s Disease, obsessive compulsive disorder, type 1 myotonic dystrophy and autism.
  Discovering molecular genetic mechanisms of central nervous system regeneration
  Dr A Hidalgo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Is it possible to promote regeneration of the central nervous system after injury, damage or disease? During normal development, neutrons and glia interact to coordinate the generations of neutrons and glia, and direct cell migration patterns, axonal navigation, dendritic arborisation and the emergence of neural circuits.
  Understanding cellular and network mechanisms underlying memory dysfunction in Alzheimer’s disease
  Dr S Wang, Prof S Grant
Application Deadline: 21 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Memory impairment is among the early signs in Alzheimer’s disease (AD) that significantly affects daily function. It is vital to understand how neurons encoding memory (i.e.
  Simons Initiative for the Developing Brain (SIDB) PhD Studentship 2020: Imaging cortical codes for learning and memory in models of Autism spectrum disorders
  Dr G Surmeli
Application Deadline: 19 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project title. “Imaging cortical codes for learning and memory in models of Autism spectrum disorders” (project code. SIDB-Surmeli-2020).
  Novel Camera Technology for Imaging of Cell Collectives - Start date: 1st October 2019
  Prof D Faccio
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University of Glasgow (UofG) is home to world-leading research in the fields of imaging and computing science. UofG is also home to the UK Hub for Quantum Imaging Technologies, QuantIC (https://quantic.ac.uk/) who are co-funding this PhD research project in collaboration with a Horiba.
  Decoding movement kinematics from subpopulations of motor cortex neurons
  Dr T V Gerdjikov, Dr J Liu
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Fine motor control involves the ability to reach, grasp and release objects. It is a fundamental aspect of motor behaviour essential for feeding, self-care and the manipulation of tools.
  Mathematical Modelling of Neurovascular function: Developing and refining brain tissue models to enable world leading research into neurovascular coupling in health and disease
  Dr J Berwick
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Developing and refining brain tissue models to enable world leading research into neurovascular coupling in health and disease.
