  Biological role of neurooestrogens in behaviour
  Dr N Vasudevan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our laboratory primarily investigates animal behaviour through the lens of neuroendocrinology i.e. hormones. We are interested in non-classical ways in which hormones may act to regulate behaviours.
  EASTBIO: Functional genomics for understanding behaviour and learning in a single-celled brainless blob, the slime mould Physarum polycephalum
  Dr M Wenzel, Prof D Lusseau, Prof P Schaap
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisors. Dr Marius Wenzel (University of Aberdeen). https://www.abdn.ac.uk/people/marius.wenzel. Professor David Lusseau (University of Aberdeen).
  Studying tissue wide coordination of pulsed contractility during morphogenesis in Drosophila
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr M Bischoff
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

During morphogenesis, cells undergo complex behaviours, including cell movement and apical constriction to shape tissues and organs.
  The genetic basis of canine oral melanoma for the prediction of disease behaviour
  Dr V James
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The School of Veterinary Medicine and Science (SVMS) undertakes research on many key aspects of companion animals and livestock health and production.
  Understanding the link between healthy ageing and social interaction
  Dr E Kevei, Dr N Vasudevan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Healthy ageing is a priority for all countries since we are living longer than ever before. A number of studies show that social behaviours can prevent some detrimental aspects of aging such as dementia and memory loss.
  PhD position in comparative neurogenetics and behaviour
  Dr T Auer, Prof R. Benton
Application Deadline: 30 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are looking for a PhD candidate (earliest starting date. 01/01/2020) to develop a project in comparative neuroscience and behaviour in the lab of Prof.
  Reprogramming stomatal behaviour to reduce water use in crops
  Prof L Sweetlove, Prof R G Ratcliffe
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Future food security will depend on developing crop plants that are as efficient as possible in their utilisation of finite resources such as water.
  *EASTBIO* Can we predict supergenes? Testing the genetic basis of a colour polymorphism in an aposematic bug.
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Dr D Shuker
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BBSRC Thematic Group. Frontier Bioscience. Understanding the genetic basis of traits remains central to understanding fundamental biological questions – such as how genetic variation maintained in populations – and to developing genetic interventions for beneficial or pest species.
  Using CRISPR genome editing to determine the effects of obesity and hypertension associated polymorphisms
  Dr A MacKenzie, Prof M Delibegovic
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Introduction. There is now little doubt that morbid conditions such as obesity, cardiovascular disease and diabetes are mechanistically linked.
  GW4 BioMed MRC DTP studentship: To treat or not to treat: investigating the impact of depression and antidepressant use in pregnancy.
  Prof RM John
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Depression in pregnancy, often occurring in combination with anxiety and a stressful environment, increases the risk of adverse outcomes for offspring with males showing more attention deficits, cognitive problems and externalising behaviour and females tending to present with anxiety, depression and internalising symptoms.
