  Self-management in burns aftercare: exploratory research
  Dr J Mathers, Dr I Litchfield
Applications accepted all year round
Background. Some 250,000 individuals sustain burns in the UK every year with the potential of lasting impact on appearance, and psychological, social, and physical functioning.
  Social mechanisms of self-harm in adolescence - ESRC DTP Joint Studentship
  Dr S Burnett-Heyes, Prof M.R. Broome
Application Deadline: 11 February 2019
The Midlands Graduate School is an accredited Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP).
  Perception in a dynamic multisensory world
  Prof U Noppeney
Applications accepted all year round
The aim of this project is to unravel the computations and neural mechanisms that enable us to perceive, understand and interact effectively with the dynamic multisensory world around us.
  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.
  Molecular genetic characterization of Drosophila reproductive behaviours for exploitation in insect population control
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr M Soller
Applications accepted all year round
Female reproductive behaviours in most insects profoundly change after mating leading to rejection of courting males and induction of egg laying.
  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.
  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).
  The psychology of problem gambling: A mixed methods approach.
  Prof R Tunney, Dr M Larkin
Application Deadline: 17 February 2019
The Harms Paradox. When matched for levels of alcohol consumption people from deprived communities suffer greater ill-health than people from more affluent communities (Mackenbach et al, 2015).
