  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.
  Identification, validation and characterisation of i-motif promoter elements in vertebrate genomes
  Dr G Scarlett, Prof M Guille, Dr F Myers
Application Deadline: 17 February 2019
Applications are invited for a fully-funded three year PhD to commence in October 2019. The PhD will be based in the School of Biological Sciences and will be supervised by Dr Garry Scarlett, Professor Matt Guille and Dr Fiona Myers.
  Epitranscriptomic mechanisms in the maternal to zygotic transition of vertebrate embryos
  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).
  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.
  Does predation drive synchrony in prey dynamics or does prey asynchrony drive predator dynamics? A test using small mammal prey and vertebrate predators in Britain and Ireland.
  Prof X Lambin, Dr N Reid
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Predation is a potent force that can synchronise prey populations as predators shift their attention to more dense, hence, profitable prey.
  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.
  Gene Regulatory Networks in Development and Disease: Focusing on systems level “big picture” approaches to understand gene regulation and build gene regulatory networks during development and disease in zebrafish, chick, lamprey and human models.
  Dr T Sauka-Spengler
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
Focusing on systems level “big picture” approaches to understand gene regulation and build gene regulatory networks during development and disease in zebrafish, chick, lamprey and human models.
  "Are we there yet?" Quantifying progress of invasive non-native species eradication using spatial capture-recapture and pedigree reconstruction.
  Prof X Lambin
Applications accepted all year round
Invasive non-native species (INNS) threaten biodiversity world-wide. In Scotland, introduced mammals including American mink, hedgehogs, grey squirrels and stoats damage multiple SPA or SAC designated areas.
  Signalling pathways controlling the generation of the pharyngeal arches
  Prof A Graham, Dr E Bell
Application Deadline: 4 March 2019
The pharynx is an important region of the body that is involved in many key processes including feeding, respiration, immune and endocrine activities.
