  Fusion Forest : Numerical Modelling of Air Flow in Forests to Secure Disease Resilience through Pattern Variability
  Dr B Fraga, Dr E Luna-Diez
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
Trees have proficient tools that allow them to survive biological threats. However, we have seen recent outbreaks of tree diseases that we were not prepared for.
  Profiling stem cell epigenetic transitions within the Drosophila hematopoietic stem cell niche
  Dr P Badenhorst
Applications accepted all year round
The self-renewal and differentiation of stem cells is controlled by signals derived from the microenvironment or “niche”. The paired hematopoietic organs of the Drosophila genetic model organism are a well-characterized system in which the regulation of stem cell behaviour within a niche can be genetically dissected.
  Extracellular Vesicle mediated cross talk in exercise and ageing
  Dr M Whitham, Dr L Breen, Dr P Harrison
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
Research interests/description of main research theme. Exercise induces the release of a vast array of molecules into circulation and there is a growing appreciation that this represents a complex network of long-range signalling or ‘cross talk’ between organs of the body.
  Transcriptional responses to cellular stress
  Dr PG Grzechnik
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  Towards Sustainable E-waste treatment in Africa
  Research Group: Air Pollution
  Prof S J Harrad, Dr R Cline-Cole
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
Urbanisation and industrial activity in Africa is increasing rapidly including treatment of e-waste to recover valuable resources.

  Analysis of pathogen determinants recognized by the hypervariable immune receptor Dscam
  Dr M Soller
Applications accepted all year round
Background. To mount an immune response, host organisms must first recognize the pathogen with which they are infected. The first line of defense against pathogen infection in animals is provided through the innate immune response.
  Multimerisation of ELAV/Hu proteins – a key mechanism ensuring specificity for RNA recognition in health and disease
  Dr M Soller, Dr T Knowles
Applications accepted all year round
Aims. Determine the structure of the ELAV dodecameric complex bound to target RNA by cryoEM and functionally probe interaction interfaces in vitro and in vivo in transgenic Drosophila models for neurodegeneration and cancer.
  mRNA epigenetics: Charaterization of a novel layer of gene regulation for essential brain functions
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr M Soller, Dr PG Grzechnik
Applications accepted all year round
For over 40 years we know about modified nucleotides in mRNA, but the functions for these essential modifications are largely elusive.
  BBSRC MIBTP - Identification of pathways deregulating neuronal ELAV/Hu RNA binding proteins and alternative splicing in neurodegeneration
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr M Soller, Dr M Tomlinson
Applications accepted all year round
ELAV/Hu proteins comprise a family of highly conserved neuronal RNA binding proteins important for the development of the nervous system and for neuronal functions.
