  Evolution of vertebrate blood vessels
  Dr T Takahashi, Dr S Herbert
Applications accepted all year round
The blood vessels are the core elements of the circulatory system of animals, and their malfunction is related to most human diseases including cancer and heart attacks.
  (BBSRC DTP) Cardiac Physiology in the World’s Oldest Vertebrate, The Greenland Shark
  Dr H Shiels, Dr G Galli, Dr A Stevens, Dr C Pinali
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The life span of the Greenland shark is at least 272 years and may be as long as 500 years making this animal the longest living vertebrate on the planet1.
  Epitranscriptomic mechanisms in the maternal to zygotic transition of vertebrate embryos
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr M Soller, Prof F Mueller
Applications accepted all year round
Most mRNAs contain modified nucleotides in mRNA, but we know very little about their function (Haussmann et al, 2016, Dezi et al, 2016, Roignant and Soller, 2017).
  The effects of multiple stressors on the global declines of vertebrate populations - NERC GW4+ DTP
  Dr C Clements
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
In a rapidly changing world characterised by increasing anthropogenic pressures the maintenance of biodiversity is a key target. One major challenge to overcome is the multi-faceted nature of human alterations.
  After the gold rush: vertebrate communities in abandoned gold mines and implications for restoration
  Dr J Bicknell
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Across Amazonia, small scale gold mining is on the rise (Kalamandeen et al. 2018). Over the last decade, this has led to a sharp increase in localised deforestation.
  Molecular Programming of blood stem and progenitor cells during vertebrate development
  Dr M Gering
Applications accepted all year round
To maintain the blood system, billions of blood cells need to be generated on a daily basis. This is achieved by blood stem cells, immature blood cells that are able to self-renew and to generate progenitors that are committed to differentiate into mature blood cells.
  Study of pioneer transcription factor dynamics during vertebrate Zygotic Genome Activation
  Research Group: MRC Human Genetics Unit
  Dr D Papadopoulos
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
How do transcription factors (TFs) regulate development at the correct time, dosage and place? How do they “know” how to “find” their target sites in live cells, with ultimate precision and specificity? Many developmental disorders are caused by haploinsufficiencies of TFs, thus their concentration and molecular behaviour is critical for directing correct embryonic development.
  Quantifying the value of pollinators in biodiversity conservation (DICKSUBIO19ARIES) [CASE project with Flora and Fauna International]
  Dr L Dicks, Dr R Davies, Dr M Klailova, Dr M Molokwu
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
This is a CASE project with Flora and Fauna International. Scientific background. Pollinator decline is an issue of global concern, with a wide range of potential impacts on biodiversity, human society and wellbeing [1,2].
  Interneuron Development in the Zebrafish Spinal Cord
  Dr K Lewis
Applications accepted all year round
The Lewis Lab moved to Syracuse University from Cambridge University in the UK in 2010.
  Unravelling early teleost relationships: diversification at the dawn of the most successful fish radiation
  Dr S Giles, Dr Z Johanson
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
With over 30,000 living species ubiquitous in all aquatic environments, teleost ray-finned fishes represent the largest living vertebrate group.
