  Mechanistic analysis of neurodevelopmental disorders caused by mutations in the gene RAC1
  Dr T Millard, Dr S Banka
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

RAC1 is a signalling protein that regulates many cellular processes and is essential during embryonic development. We recently discovered a novel genetic disease called RAC1-related neurodevelopmental disorder (RRND) that results from mutations in the RAC1 gene.
  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.
  Exploring the mitotic functions of ASPM in human brain size regulation
  Dr J Bond, Dr E E Morrison, Prof M Peckham
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The increase in relative brain size is one of the most striking events in human evolution. To determine how human brain size is normally regulated we have investigated the cause of autosomal recessive primary microcephaly (MCPH), a congenital disorder of reduced brain size and associated mental retardation.
  Membrane protein misfolding and disease: quality control pathways
  Dr L Swanton, Prof P Woodman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Misfolded proteins represent a continuous threat to cell viability, and if allowed to accumulate, can disrupt cellular function and induce cell death.
  Fully Funded PhD Scholarship: Developing the next generation of neural stimulation devices.
  Assoc Prof R Richardson
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

RMIT University and the Bionics Institute invite applications from highly motivated individuals to complete a PhD in the field of medical bionics.
  FoodBioSystems DTP - The impact of food transmitted endocrine disruptors on animal and human health
  Dr E Kevei, Dr L Connolly, Dr N Vasudevan, Dr G Arnott
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. We are seeking a highly motivated individual to carry out PhD research on the biomedical impact of microplastic pollution in the environment and in the Agrifood sector to determine its effect on human health.
  Elucidation of structure-function relationship of individual disease relevant protein aggregates in motor neuron disease using single molecule and super resolution imaging
  Dr S De, Dr L Ferraiuolo
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Aggregation and deposition of specific protein(s) are common hallmark of several neurodegenerative disorders including motor neuron disease (MND).
  Identifying the role of glycosaminoglycans and microglia in early pathology of mucopolysaccharide diseases
  Dr B BIgger, Dr R Holley, Prof S Flitsch
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mucopolysaccharidoses (MPS) are inherited metabolic disorders caused by the deficiency of specific lysosomal enzymes required for the catabolism of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) where each MPS type lacks a specific enzyme resulting in the build-up of GAGs in all cells of the body.
  Transfer RNA fragments in the mechanism and treatment of epilepsy
  Prof D Henshall, Dr M Hogg
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Epilepsy is a neurological disorder caused by hyperexcitable brain networks that give rise to seizures. Many epilepsies have a genetic cause whereas some develop following a brain injury.
  (BBSRC DTP) Definition of integrin signalling networks in neurons in vivo
  Prof A Prokop, Prof M J Humphries
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cell adhesion molecules (CAMs) of the plasma membrane physically tie cells together into tissues, both via interaction of cells with other cells or with ECM (extracellular matrix); they also constitute hubs of information exchange with neighbouring cells and the environment.
