  EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Sustainable Approaches to Biomedical Science: Responsible and Reproducible Research - SABS

Funding Type

PhD Type

Good degree in the Physical or Life Sciences? Interested in biological or medical research? We offer fully-funded PhD places across the Oxford Doctoral Training Centre programmes.
  Investigating metabolic changes in neurodegeneration
  Dr F Mackenzie, Dr M Stolinski
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 3-year PhD will study the increasingly recognised association between metabolic disease and neurodegeneration using in vitro cell culture methods.
  Imaging the rhythms of stress hormone secretion
  Dr K Iremonger
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Corticosteroid stress hormones are released throughout the day in hourly pulses with a peak in secretion prior to the onset of the active period (early morning for humans, early evening for rodents).
  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.
  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.
  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.
  Targeting inflammation to prevent brain swelling following paediatric head injury
  Dr F Corrigan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited to undertake a PhD/Higher Degree by Research (HDR) to investigate how the inflammatory response to a traumatic brain injury differs in the paediatric population compared to adults.
  Modelling a myelination disorder in the zebrafish: drug discovery and gene editing
  Prof T T Whitfield
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Adhesion G protein-coupled receptors (aGPCRs) have exciting potential as therapeutic targets for drug discovery. The aGPCR Adgrg6 (Gpr126) has a conserved role in myelination of the vertebrate peripheral nervous system, and is of considerable clinical interest.
  Live imaging of neural circuits mediating pain
  Dr A Nikolaev, Dr E Seward
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to characterize the neuronal circuitry involved in pain signaling in genetically modified zebrafish expressing fluorescent reporters of activity.
  Regulation of SNARE complex assembly and function by the lysine deacetylase Sirtuin-2
  Dr M Collins, Dr A Peden
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sirtuin-2 (Sirt2) is a lysine deacetylase that regulates acetylation levels of cytoplasmic proteins and has established roles in neurodegeneration, cancer and infection.
