  Tracking the reconstruction of memories in the human brain
  Dr M Wimber, Dr I Charest
Application Deadline: 15 February 2019
The PhD candidate will work on the ERC-funded project STREAM - The Spatio-Temporal Representational Architecture of Memory. This project, led by Dr Maria Wimber, aims to track how memories are reconstructed in the human brain.
  Exploring the causes and consequences of deficits in social cognition within clinical populations: a study of motor function and interoception
  Dr J Cook, Dr J Galea
Application Deadline: 15 February 2019
Research interests/description of main research theme. Aims. In collaboration with industrial partner BioBeats, this project aims to delineate the structure of social cognition and examine the relationship between socio-cognitive ability, interoception (the perception of internal bodily signals) and body movements.
  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.
  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.
  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?.
