  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: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

During morphogenesis, cells undergo complex behaviours, including cell movement and apical constriction to shape tissues and organs.
  Defined outcomes from chaotic directions – The influence of random nanoscale mechanical stress on cancer cell behaviour and drug resistance
  Dr M Zelzer, Dr A Piccinini
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We invite you to apply for an exciting opportunity for a fully funded PhD project at the interface of material science, engineering, cancer cell biology and mathematic modelling.
  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.
  Genetic, transcriptomic and phenotypic analyses of cells of the blood vessel wall for understanding cardiovascular disease
  Prof S Ye
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This studentship will align with the strategic priorities of the Leicester British Heart Foundation Accelerator Award. Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is one of the main causes of death and disability in the UK and many other countries.
  PhD position in comparative neurogenetics and behaviour
  Dr T Auer, Prof R. Benton
Application Deadline: 15 December 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.
  Molecular and genetic mechanisms of brain structural plasticity and neurodegeneration in the fruit-fly Drosophila.
  Dr A Hidalgo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The brain changes throughout life. brain plasticity enables the brain to adjust in response to experience, whereas during aging natural neurodegeneration takes over.
  Structural plasticity and regeneration in the Drosophila brain.
  Dr A Hidalgo
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The brain is plastic. neurons and glia make adjustments in cell size and shape (dendrites, axons), in synapses, and in cell number, throughout life.
  Discovering molecular genetic mechanisms of central nervous system regeneration
  Dr A Hidalgo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Is it possible to promote regeneration of the central nervous system after injury, damage or disease? During normal development, neutrons and glia interact to coordinate the generations of neutrons and glia, and direct cell migration patterns, axonal navigation, dendritic arborisation and the emergence of neural circuits.
  *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.
