  How does the brain make decisions when faced with conflicting options?
  Dr C Rezaval
Application Deadline: 30 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Animals engage in daily activities that are essential for survival and reproduction, such as feeding, mating or fighting for resources.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Investigating the in vivo targets and mechanism of action of a toxic acetylcholinesterase-derived peptide upregulated in Alzheimer’s disease
  Dr M Collins, Prof S Greenfield
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that is characterised by the deposition and accumulation of amyloid beta plaques and phosphorylated tau filaments in the brain, the latter correlating with the onset of symptoms.
  ORBITAL (MSCA-European Training Network) 4 Early Stage Researcher PhD Studentships

Funding Type

PhD Type

4 Early Stage Researcher (ESR) PhD studentships still available on the Marie Skłodowska-Curie action (MSCA) European/Innovative Training Network, ORBITAL (Ocular Research By Integrated Training And Learning) within the Horizon 2020 programme.
  Embodied learning: How motor difficulties constrain learning during parent-child interaction in infants/toddlers with Down syndrome and Williams syndrome
  Research Group: Brain and Cognition Research Group
  Dr D D'Souza, Dr H D'Souza, Dr J Lambie
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Proposed supervisory team. Dr Dean D’Souza ([email protected])- (Anglia Ruskin University), Dr Hana D’Souza - (Cambridge University), Dr John Lambie ([email protected])- (Anglia Ruskin University).
  Targeting ageing: Genes and compounds with pro-longevity, health-preserving effects
  Dr JP de Magalhaes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ageing is arguably the major biomedical challenge of the 21st century. In model organisms, the process of ageing can be manipulated by both genetic manipulations and dietary interventions.
  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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Deciphering the neural code of the hippocampus
  Dr M Montemurro, Dr J Gigg
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The brain processes and stores information about our lives and the world that surrounds us. At the neural scale, information is encoded through the precise timing of activity across populations of neurons.
  Protein Misfolding and the Molecular Basis of Alzheimer’s Disease
  Dr J Viles
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. World-wide one in three people over the age of 65 will die with Alzheimer’s Disease (AD). The disease is characterised by deposits of amyloid plaques and fibrils of amyloid-beta peptide (Ab) are their main constituent.
  KETOGENIC DIET: An in vitro single-cell imaging and molecular analysis approach to determine and therapeutically target the control principles of neuronal bioenergetics for the treatment of epilepsy with ketogenic diet
  Prof J Prehn
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Glutamate is the main excitatory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system (CNS)CNS. Glutamate receptor activation imposes a significant work load and energy demand on neurons which requires neurons to increase ATP production.
  A 3D in vitro model of wound healing incorporating skin, nerves and immune cells
  Dr A M Rajnicek, Prof H M Wilson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Diabetes, paralysis, being bed ridden and other conditions can result in chronic wounds that fail to heal, with significant personal consequences for patients and an annual cost of £4.5-5.1 billion annually (Guest et al., 2015) to the National Health Service.
