  Analysis of pathogen determinants recognized by the hypervariable immune receptor Dscam
  Dr M Soller
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019
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.
  Priestley PhD Scholarship in Youth Mental Health: Personhood, Epistemic injustice, and the Clinical Encounter in Early Psychosis
  Prof M.R. Broome, Prof L Bortolotti
Application Deadline: 24 January 2019
Supervisors. Professor Matthew Broome (UoB), Professor Lisa Bortolotti (UoB), Professor Barnaby Nelson (Orygen and University of Melbourne).
  Regulation of autophagy in human embryonic stem cells and its therapeutic application in induced pluripotent stem cell-based disease models
  Dr S Sarkar
Applications accepted all year round
Project background. Regulation of proteostasis is critical for maintaining tissue homeostasis. Autophagy, a major intracellular degradation pathway essential for cellular and energy homeostasis, functions in the clearance of aggregation-prone proteins and damaged organelles.
  Promoting positive parenting: Evaluating the impact of ‘kitbag’ tools and strategies to promote maternal and child mental health in diverse settings.
  Dr M Clark
Applications accepted all year round
Applications are invited for a 3-year full time or 5 year part time /self-funded PhD Studentship starting February 2019. Maternal and child mental health is a global public health priority (WHO 2013, WHO 2018).
  Neural basis underlying mating decisions in fruit flies
  Dr C Rezaval
Applications accepted all year round
Mate choice is an essential behavioural process with profound consequences in evolution. How do animals choose with whom to mate? How do they evaluate the features of a potential mate to maximise their reproductive success?.
  Structure and function of neurohypophysial hormone receptors
  Prof M Wheatley
Applications accepted all year round
The neurohypophysial peptide hormones vasopressin (AVP) and oxytocin (OT) regulate amongst other things diuresis and lactation respectively.
  Genetic and molecular mechanisms of nervous regeneration and repair
  Dr A Hidalgo
Applications accepted all year round
The project will aim to discover novel molecular mechanisms that could promote central nervous system regeneration. The focus will be on how neurons and glia interact to match their cell populations and functions, and on the regenerative potential of glial cells.
  Genetic and molecular mechanisms of brain structural plasticity and neurodegeneration
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr A Hidalgo
Applications accepted all year round
The project will test the potential of a molecular mechanism that we recently discovered, in modulating brain structural plasticity versus neurodegeneration.
  Eukaryotic gene expression: understanding the role of UPF1 in global mRNA processing and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
  Dr S Brogna
Applications accepted all year round
This project’s specific objective is to study the molecular role(s) that the RNA helicase UPF1 plays in RNA processing. UPF1 is a key player in nonsense-mediated mRNA decay (NMD), it is universally conserved in eukaryotes and is essential to the development of many organisms [1].
  The importance of the DNA damage response in neurodegeneration
  Dr R Tuxworth
Applications accepted all year round
DNA damage occurs in early-stage neurodegenerative diseases. The response of neurons to the damage may contribute to disease progression by inducing senescence, cell-cycle and apoptosis.
