  The role of novel genes in CNS axon regeneration
  Dr Z Ahmed, Prof A Logan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

CNS injuries result in considerable mortality and morbidity, with limited prospects of recovery for acquired disability. Lost central nervous system (CNS) neurons are not replaced and severed CNS axons do not regenerate.
  Using canine models of obesity to discover the mechanisms by which genes influence obesity.
  Dr E Raffan, Dr D Sargan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are interested in discovering the mechanisms by which genes influence obesity. The dog is an excellent model organism for human comparative analyses.
  The physiological roles of the Rasd1 interactome in the central control of hydromineral homeostasis
  Prof D Murphy, Dr M Greenwood
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The brain mechanisms responsible for osmotic stability are located in the hypothalamo-neurohypophyseal system (HNS), which consists of magnocellular neurons located in the supraoptic nucleus (SON) and paraventicular nucleus (PVN), the axons of which terminate in the posterior pituitary gland.
  Interneuron Development in the Zebrafish Spinal Cord
  Dr K Lewis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Lewis Lab moved to Syracuse University from Cambridge University in the UK in 2010.
  Genome and transcriptome sequencing and functional analysis to find new mutation types in patients with inherited blindness
  Prof C Inglehearn
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human inherited retinal dystrophies (IRDs) result from mutations in over 200 different genes, many of them first implicated by the Leeds Vision Research Group (eg Panagiotou E et al 2017, AJHG 100:960-968; El-Asrag M et al 2015, 96:948-54).
  How to prevent promiscuous gene regulation
  Prof M C Gambetta
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Regulatory elements that turn genes ON or OFF are promiscuous and can act over large genomic distances. How are genes protected from unwanted regulation?.
  The genetic basis of cognitive impairment in intellectual disability and schizophrenia
  Prof C Inglehearn, Dr M Ali
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Schizophrenia is a chronic mental health condition affecting 1% of human populations, with symptoms that include visual and auditory hallucinations, delusions and disordered thought, leading to disruption of the sense of self.
  Molecular dissection of activity-dependent neuronal signalling pathways using quantitative proteomics
  Dr M Collins
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent proteomic investigations have identified several thousand proteins in biochemically purified synapses and have uncovered multiprotein complexes essential for synapse function.
  MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT: Testing whether pain underlies the altered behaviour of zebrafish osteoarthritis mutants
  Dr C L Hammond
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Start 23 September 2019. This MSc by Research is a laboratory-based project which offers the exciting opportunity to spend 1 year in one of our State-of-the-Art laboratories (plus 1 year thesis writing) at the University of Bristol and experience life as a researcher.
  Rhythmic control of energy balance - to understand how our internal clocks regulate energy metabolism
  Dr D Bechtold, Prof D Ray
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

24-hour rhythms are present in virtually all aspects of our behaviour and physiology. These rhythms are underpinned by circadian clocks that run throughout the body, and act within each tissue to orchestrate many organ functions and rhythmic activities (e.g.
