  Investigating the Contribution of IGF-1 to Risk of Developing Prostate Cancer
  Prof V Macaulay, Prof I Mills
Application Deadline: 11 September 2019
Subjects with low circulating insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) are strongly protected from cancer, while men with high IGF-1 are at increased risk of prostate cancer.
  Effects of fasting-induced torpor on sleep and behaviour in mice
  Prof v Vyazovskiy, Prof D Bannerman, Dr S Peirson
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
This project will investigate the effects of food restriction on torpor in mice, the effects of torpor on subsequent behavioural performance and sleep, and will develop a standardized approach to detect the occurrence of torpor during food restriction.
  An integrated study of genetics and silviculture in Continuous Cover Forestry in Britain
  Prof J Mackay
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
SUPERVISORS. Professor John MacKay (University of Oxford), Dr Gary Kerr (Forest Research). -----------------------------------------------------------------------.
  Mechanisms controlling the biogenesis and functions of chloroplasts in plants: protein transport and the ubiquitin-proteasome system
  Prof P Jarvis
Applications accepted all year round
Our research is focused on the biogenesis of chloroplasts and other plastids in plants, particularly in relation to the import of nucleus-encoded proteins and the role of the ubiquitin-proteasome system.
  Race structure and pathogenicity mechanisms in Pseudomonas syringae pv. syringae, the causal agent of brown spot of Phaseolus vulgaris (common bean)
  Prof G Preston
Applications accepted all year round
BACKGROUND. Beans provide one of the most important staple sources of dietary protein in many parts of Africa and worldwide, and are an important part of the horticultural export market.
  Studying chloroplast biogenesis in the basal land plant Marchantia polymorpha: Using CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing and forward genetics to assess functional conservation and seek novel components
  Prof P Jarvis, Prof L Dolan
Applications accepted all year round
Chloroplasts are responsible for photosynthesis, and are the organelles that define plants [1]. They evolved as a result of an endosymbiotic relationship between a cyanobacterium and an algal progenitor, in a process that began over a billion years ago.
  Systemic infection of bean by the halo blight pathogen Pseudomonas syringae pv. phaseolicola
  Prof G Preston
Applications accepted all year round
BACKGROUND. Beans provide one of the most important staple sources of dietary protein in many parts of Africa and worldwide, and are an important part of the horticultural export market.
  Comparative analyses of kin selection and sexual selection in cooperative breeders
  Prof A Griffin, Dr C Cornwallis
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
The last 30 years have generated hundreds of papers of data on cooperative breeding species revealing bewildering diversity in behaviour and form.
  Evolutionary Conflict Over Maternal Diet
  Dr J Perry, Dr S Wigby
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
A key assumption in animal nutrition is that, when given a choice, individuals will choose optimal diets that maximize their reproduction and lifespan.
