  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.
  Determining brain glycosylation in ageing and Alzheimer’s disease
  Research Group: Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics
  Dr R Williamson, Dr C Sutton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Increasing age is associated with lower levels of cognitive performance; concomitant with this is a decrease in brain glucose metabolism.
  MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT: Modulation of Brain Energy Metabolism by Astrocytic G-protein-coupled Receptors
  Dr A Teschemacher
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  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.
  Identifying glucose-dependent mechanisms underlying risk factors for Alzheimer’s disease
  Research Group: Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics
  Dr R Williamson, Dr S McLean
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Several risk factors for Alzheimer’s disease including diabetes and midlife obesity are age-dependent and have an obvious metabolic component resulting in impaired glucose metabolism.
  PhD studentship in Delineating Molecular Mechanisms of Human Neuronal Physiology and Neurodegeneration
  Dr C Rallis
Application Deadline: 16 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a fully-funded PhD research studentship in the School of Health, Sport and Bioscience, University of East London.
  An integrated approach to the study of cellular interactions with amyloid
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Dr E W Hewitt, Prof S E Radford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The formation of insoluble amyloid fibrils is associated with a spectrum of human disorders, the amyloidoses, which include Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, type 2 diabetes and dialysis related amyloidosis (DRA).
  The effects of high fat diet on adult neurogenesis in the brainstem
  Dr S Deuchars, Dr B.M. Filippi
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Postnatal neurogenesis is known to occur in specific niches of the brain, such as the hippocampus and subventricular zone, which enables production of new interneurones to be integrated into neuronal circuits.
  Impact of maternal intermittent fasting on cognitive development
  Dr N Ashton, Prof J Neill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many pregnant Muslim women take part in the daily fast during the month of Ramadan, even though they are exempt. The long term effects on the child are not fully known; however an association between exposure to fasting in utero and an increased incidence of mental impairment in children has been shown.
  Enzymes of endocannabinoid turnover in inflammatory responses
  Dr SPH Alexander
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over recent years, we have generated, developed and established a wide range of assays for different enzyme activities.
