  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.
  Pathophysiology of red cell membrane permeability
  Dr J Gibson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our project investigates how red cell membrane permeability is altered in pathophysiological states.
  Development of a treatment for drug-resistant childhood epilepsy caused by potassium channel dysfunction.
  Dr J D Lippiat, Dr S Clapcote, Dr S Muench
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gain-of-function mutations in the human gene KCNT1, which encodes the KNa1.1 sodium-activated potassium channel, cause severe childhood epilepsy that cannot be controlled by current medication.
  Ion channel signalling in cancer cells
  Dr W Brackenbury
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our cells constantly sense and transport ions present in their environment. From embryonic development to epilepsy to heart disease to cancer, our cells’ ability to respond to changes in the ionic microenvironment is essential for healthy ageing.
  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.
  MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT: Maturing stem cell-derived cardiomyocytes to provide improved models of arrhythmia
  Dr S Harmer, Prof J C Hancox
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.
  Natural toxins and their synthetic analogues as tools to study ion channels and as potential drugs and pesticides
  Dr I R Mellor
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project will use a combination of electrophysiological techniques such as voltage-clamp and patch-clamp with molecular biology and protein expression to understand how natural toxins and their synthetic analogues act on ion channels in the nervous system.
  P2X receptors in the peripheral nervous system: molecular pharmacology (FOUNTAINSU20SF)
  Dr S Fountain
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

P2X receptors are ligand-gated ion channels activated by extracellular adenosine 5’-triphosphate (ATP). In the peripheral nervous system (PNS), ATP is a neurotransmitter acting in both autonomic and sensory nerve control of body tissue function and homeostasis.
  Neural circuit dysfunction in a mouse model of 22q11.2 deletion syndrome. PhD in Medical Studies (MRC GW4 BioMed DTP)
  Dr M Craig
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisory team. Dr Michael Craig, Institute of Biomedical and Clinical Science, College of Medicine and Health, University of Exeter.
  Homeostatic balancing of neuronal excitation and inhibition in vivo
  Dr A Lin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neuronal excitation and inhibition are very carefully balanced in the brain, and perturbed excitation/inhibition (E/I) balance has been linked to diseases such as epilepsy, autism and schizophrenia.
