  Excitatory interneuron defects in motor neurone disease
  Dr J McDearmid, Dr W NORTON
Applications accepted all year round
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is an untreatable disease that causes degeneration of motor neurons, typically resulting in death within 2-3 years of diagnosis.
  Understanding the neurological basis of concussion
  Dr B Warren, Dr J Steinert
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
How many fingers am I holding up? What day of the week is it? Follow my finger? These three questions are designed to test your sensory, memory and motor neural abilities following an accident; all three systems are affected by a severe deceleration of your brain.
  Multilevel modelling of neuronal function: combining metabotropic pathways and membrane excitability in-silico.
  Dr F Tamagnini, Dr M Tindall
Application Deadline: 23 February 2019
Neurons work as information relays. They integrate information received from the environment at the subcellular scale, generating an appropriate electrophysiological response.
  Regulation of neuronal excitability and synaptic transmission by metabolic demand in health and disease
  Prof I D Forsythe, Dr J Steinert
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
The brain uses vast metabolic resources to maintain electrical excitability and to integrate sensory information (Harris et al., 2012).
  Aiming to elucidate the pathophysiological basis of human neurological disorders from genetic molecular networks to complex neural systems.
  Dr Z Cader
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Aiming to elucidate the pathophysiological basis of human neurological disorders from genetic molecular networks to complex neural systems.
  Understanding the role of serotonergic systems in motor control
  Dr J McDearmid, Dr W NORTON
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Serotonin is a key modulator of locomotor activity in the brain and spinal cord of vertebrates. A wide range pharmacological and lesion studies have provided important information about the role of serotonergic systems in modulation of motor output.
  Pathophysiology of red cell membrane permeability
  Dr J Gibson
Applications accepted all year round
Our project investigates how red cell membrane permeability is altered in pathophysiological states.
  Regulation of cortical and sub-cortical neural circuits by incretins, Neuroscience – PhD (Funded)
  Dr J Brown, Prof A Randall
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
The University of Exeter’s College of Medicine and Health, in partnership with Eli Lilly and Company Limited, is inviting applications for a fully-funded BBSRC-CASE PhD studentship to commence in September 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter.
  Mechanistic involvement of sodium in cell metabolism and signalling
  Dr W Brackenbury, Dr D Lagos
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Our cells constantly sense and transport ions present in their environment. From. embryonic development to epilepsy to heart disease to cancer, our cells’ ability.
  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
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.
