  A Statistical Approach to Understanding the Complexity of Bryozoan Mineralogy
  Dr P Dillingham, Prof D Bryant
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Project. Bryozoans are one of the most mineralogically-complex phyla in the sea. These small colonial invertebrates make hard skeletons from seawater in any of three carbonate minerals, sometimes in various combinations, in response to controls that are intrinsic (phylogeny, development) and extrinsic (environment).
  Understanding genome regulation via DNA methylation and enhancer interactions in cancer
  Dr M Parry, Dr A Chatterjee
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gene expression changes are likely in cancer patients, as well as methylation changes. However, there is a paucity of enhancer data for cancer patients.
  Ubiquitin binding and the assembly of ubiquitin chains
  Dr C Day
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A talented PhD candidate interested in studying the biochemical properties of ubiquitin E3-ligases is being recruited to join Catherine Day’s laboratory in the Biochemistry Department, University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand.
  Development of chemical tools to interrogate cannabinoid receptors
  Dr A Vernall
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Suitable for an international or New Zealand candidate to work on the design and synthesis of small molecules and chemical tools to study cannabinoid type 2 receptors.
  Stress responses in the diabetic heart: Effects of exercise training and glycaemic control
  Dr C Baldi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The diabetic heart, even before developing disease, has impaired relaxation and contractility. These changes limit the work capacity of the heart (maximal cardiac output) and limit the functional capacity of people with diabetes.
  Sex hormone actions in frailty and health during ageing
  Dr M Garratt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

It is well established that testosterone and estrogens can influence ageing, with hormone administration improving physical function, muscle and bone strength in some cohorts of the elderly.
  Sensory perception in control of mammalian life-history
  Dr M Garratt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Life history theory is built on the assumption that there are trade-offs between life-history traits, such as between early and late-life reproduction, and between reproduction and lifespan.
  Optogenetic voltage reporting to probe cerebellar to motor cortex connections
  Dr R Empson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The cerebellum and the motor cortex are known to communicate during motor behaviour for the refinement of movement.
  Optogenenetic voltage reporting to understand cerebellar learning
  Dr R Empson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cerebellar Purkinje neurons, the main output neuron of the cerebellar cortex, undergo a variety of forms of synaptic plasticity that are thought to underlie aspects of motor learning.
  Therapeutic approaches for the treatment of cerebellar ataxias and tremors
  Dr R Empson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cerebellar ataxias and tremor are devastating movement disorders that often begin early in life and for which there is no cure.
