  AstraZeneca/Pharmacology 4 year PhD studentship applications now open: Neuronal signalling of nutrients from mouse and human intestine
  Dr D Bulmer
Application Deadline: 10 May 2019
Applications are invited for 4-year PhD studentships funded by AstraZeneca and the Department of Pharmacology. The students will be working on collaborative projects co-led by departmental supervisors and AstraZeneca scientists.
  Molecular Pharmacology of N-Methyl-D-aspartate glutamate receptors
  Dr P Chen
Applications accepted all year round
Fast neuronal communication at synaptic contacts relies on neurotransmitter release from the presynaptic terminal and the majority of excitatory neurotransmission within the mammalian central nervous system is mediated by the neurotransmitter glutamate.
  Pharmacology of soft nanomaterials: investigating nanoparticle-cell interaction
  Dr M Jones
Applications accepted all year round
Research into so-called ’soft’ or organic nanomaterials has been thriving with a wide variety of compositions being explored for pharmaceutical applications.
  Understanding the role of the lipid bilayer on receptor function
  Dr J Simms, Prof H Maddock
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
Understanding how the binding of a single ligand influences the behaviour of a membrane protein target is of fundamental importance in drug discovery.
  MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT: Neural mechanisms of the effects of social interactions on the pain experience
  Dr B Lumb, Dr S Quadfledg
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT: Approach – Avoidance foraging; a novel and ethological rodent assay to evaluate anxiety-like behaviour and the brain networks that support it
  Dr R Apps, Dr B Lumb, Dr C Lawrenson
Applications accepted all year round
Start 23 September 2019. This MSc by Research is a laboratory-based project which offers the exciting opportunity to spend one year in one of our State-of-the-Art laboratories (and a year to write-up) at the University of Bristol and experience life as a researcher.
  Identification and characterisation of protein depalmitoylases
  Dr J Greaves, Prof M Wheatley
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
S-acylation (palmitoylation) is an essential post-translational modification (PTM) involving the reversible attachment of fatty acids, such as palmitic acid, onto the cysteine residues of proteins.
  Targeting the P2X7 purinergic receptor in melanoma (STOKESLU19SF)
  Dr L Stokes, Dr C Morris
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
There is much research into trying to regain control of cell proliferation or cell death (apoptosis) in cancer. Different strategies exist to do this and a multitude of individual receptor targets are being identified in tumour cell lines and primary cells.
  Using optogenetics to understand memory retrieval in models relevant to Alzheimer’s disease
  Research Group: Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences
  Dr S Wang, Dr K Horsburgh
Application Deadline: 30 April 2019
Memory dysfunction is a hallmark in Alzheimer’s disease (AD) that significantly affects the daily life in people living with AD. It remains debated whether memory deficits reflect an inability to store the information or an inability to retrieve information that is previously stored.
  Developing mechanistic models of immune response to checkpoint inhibitors and cell death that address inter-subject heterogeneity
  Dr K Ogungbenro, Dr H Mistry, Prof L Aarons
Application Deadline: 26 April 2019
Understanding the response of the immune system to perturbations is challenging because of the significant inter-subject variability in the response.
