  Neural basis underlying mating decisions in fruit flies
  Dr C Rezaval
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mate choice is an essential behavioural process with profound consequences in evolution. How do animals choose with whom to mate? How do they evaluate the features of a potential mate to maximise their reproductive success?.
  MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT: Developing Drosophila as a model to study the molecular and behavioural changes underlying Parkinson’s disease
  Dr J Hodge
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.
  Dissecting neural circuits for goal-oriented actions
  Dr M Tripodi
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Movement is our only way to interact with the environment, to explore it and modify it. We study the organization and function of neural circuits controlling movement in mice, with particular focus on goal oriented movements.
  Neural circuit basis of sexually dimorphic and learned behaviours in Drosophila
  Dr G Jefferis
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

We study how sensory information is transformed into behaviour in the fly brain. We mostly use the olfactory system, because olfaction is a relatively shallow sense.
  Probing the structure and function of neural connectomes
  Dr W Schafer
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Connectomics offers the possibility of understanding the brain in terms of its neural components and their interactions. However, such a reductionist understanding of the brain presents many challenges.
  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.
  Genetic and molecular mechanisms of nervous regeneration and repair
  Dr A Hidalgo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project will aim to discover novel molecular mechanisms that could promote central nervous system regeneration. The focus will be on how neurons and glia interact to match their cell populations and functions, and on the regenerative potential of glial cells.
  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.
  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.
  3 years fully funded PhD in Neuroscience: Astrocytic Modulation of Epileptic Activity
  Dr Y Buskila
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The MARCS institute for Brain, Behaviour and Development is a research institute within Western Sydney University. MARCS has rapidly become a research leader in neuroscience and cognition research, with a strong reputation for delivering research outcomes of the highest quality.
