  Moving about a new axis: The role of the backbone in major adaptive radiations of terrestrial vertebrates
  Dr KT Bates, Dr K Jones, Dr P Cox, Dr J Gardiner
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Evolutionary shifts in locomotion underpin major ecological transitions in vertebrates. Our understanding of how key innovations in the locomotor system drive taxonomic and ecological diversity during evolutionary transitions is largely based on the limbs.
  Evolution of vertebrate blood vessels
  Dr T Takahashi, Dr S Herbert
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Identification of the molecular pathways that guide zebrafish regeneration.
  Dr H Roehl
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The study of regenerative biology aims to elucidate the innate ability of organisms to replace tissues or organs after they have been removed or damaged.
  Molecular and cellular mechanisms of regeneration in the invertebrate chordate amphioxus
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr I Somorjai
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cephalochordates ("amphioxus" or "lancelet") are an ideal model for studying developmental and regenerative processes (Bertrand and Escriva 2011; Somorjai 2017).
  Gene splicing in tissue morphogenesis (HAERTYE20DTP)
  Dr W Haerty
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nearly all the genes in vertebrates undergo alternative splicing, the process through which different transcripts are generated from a single gene.
  Kidneys in a dish: epithelial polarity and tube formation in human renal organoids
  Dr K Roeper
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Epithelia constitute one of the major tissue types in all animals and form the basic building blocks of tubular organs in both vertebrates and invertebrates.
  Interneuron Development in the Zebrafish Spinal Cord
  Dr K Lewis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Lewis Lab moved to Syracuse University from Cambridge University in the UK in 2010.
  Deciphering the principles underlying specification of endoderm versus mesoderm in mouse embryonic stem cells
  Dr C Hill
Application Deadline: 12 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 4-year PhD studentship is offered in Dr Caroline Hill’s Group based at the Francis Crick Institute (the Crick). Our lab focuses on the transforming growth factor beta (TGF-b) superfamily of ligands which comprises the TGF-bs, Activins, Nodal, BMPs and GDFs.
  A mechanistic understanding of circadian clock-dependent regulation of the secretory pathway
  Prof K E Kadler, Dr Q-J Meng, Dr J Swift
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The protein secretory pathway comprises a series of membranous compartments and transport vesicles that cells use to synthesise, post-translationally modify, and move proteins for delivery to the plasma membrane or for secretion to the extracellular matrix.
  Climate Change Solutions: Developmental Programming of Fish Thermal Tolerance Limits
  Dr G Galli, Dr H Shiels
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change poses a significant threat to global biodiversity. Conservation strategies are critically dependent on a thorough understanding of the effects of fluctuating environments on animal morphology, physiology and behaviour.
