  The effects of stress on serotonergic signalling and brain development
  Dr W NORTON, Dr V Straub
Applications accepted all year round
Pre- and early postnatal stress has been shown to affect brain development and adult behaviour, and is a known risk factor for the onset of anxiety and depression in later life.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Understanding the molecular pathophysiology of stress on the developing and adult brain
  Dr N Krone, Dr V T Cunliffe
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Stress is associated with significant morbidity including depression and anxiety. Activation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis leads to synthesis of cortisol, which is a key mediator of the pathology of chronic stress.
  Early life adversity and cardiovascular and immune responses to stress
  Dr A C Phillips
Applications accepted all year round
This project can be offered either on a full-time or a part-time basis. Please email the prospective supervisor for more details.
  4 Year MRC PhD Programme: Cell stress patterns and pathways in the mammalian embryo
  Prof K G Storey, Prof C R Wolf, Dr C Henderson
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Exposure to toxins from the environment has been linked to a rise in non-communicable diseases and behavioral deficits in adults.
  Stressed! How do animals cope with what life throws at them?
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Dr A Bretman, Dr E.J.. Duncan, Dr S M Sait
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Animals face many environmental stresses, and this is only likely to get worse as we face an era of rapid climate change. This brings into sharp focus the need to understand what the responses to stressors are and what molecular mechanisms underpin the strategies animals use to cope with stress.
  Increasing fitness potential of plants through chromatin landscape analysis during stress responses
  Prof A Devoto, Dr C Turnbull
Application Deadline: 15 January 2019
Stress responses under water scarcity are induced to enable survival and simultaneously shoot growth is reduced to limit water loss.
  BBSRC MIBTP - Transcriptional responses to cellular stress
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr PG Grzechnik, Dr S Brogna
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Position for a PhD student is available in the group of Dr Pawel Grzechnik at the University of Birmingham. The aim of the project is to understand how eukaryotic cells remodel RNA biology in order to survive stress generated by pathological conditions and external stressors.
  Dimerization and RNA-binding dynamics of TDP-43 during stress responses in neurons
  Dr HJ Chen, Dr M Plevin
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
RNA-binding proteins (RBPs) are known to play an important role in. neurons, where they are involved heavily in maintaining normal cell.
  MRC DTP 4 Year PhD Programme: Investigating the role of oxidative stress and anti-angiogenic factors in preeclampsia utilising physiological and 3D-cell models.
  Prof C Murdoch, Dr C Henderson
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Preeclampsia occurs in 3-8% of all pregnancies causing rapid hypertension and kidney dysfunction in pregnant woman which is difficult to predict and untreatable.
  Epigenetic mechanisms underlying responses to environmental stress
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr A Bretman, Dr E.J.. Duncan, Dr S M Sait
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Animals face challenges of environmental stress from many sources, such as temperature, nutrition, toxins, disease and social interactions.
