  SWBio DTP PhD project: Role of microRNAs in regulating sex differences in stress responsive neurocircuitry across the lifespan
  Prof M Lindsay, Dr S J Bailey
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the South West Biosciences Doctoral Training Partnership (SWBio DTP).
  Neural basis underlying mating decisions in fruit flies
  Dr C Rezaval
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mate choice is an essential behavioural process with profound consequences in evolution. How do animals choose with whom to mate? How do they evaluate the features of a potential mate to maximise their reproductive success?.
  Biological role of neurooestrogens in behaviour
  Dr N Vasudevan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our laboratory primarily investigates animal behaviour through the lens of neuroendocrinology i.e. hormones. We are interested in non-classical ways in which hormones may act to regulate behaviours.
  (BBSRC DTP) Brain integration and processing of ingestive signals
  Prof S Luckman, Dr G D'Agostino
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

After meal consumption, the brain evaluates the value of its contents and relays this information via neuronal circuits connecting the periphery with the brain (1,2).
  (BBSRC DTP) Cytoskeletal re-arrangements leading to correct neuron polarisation during vertebrate CNS development
  Dr R Das, Prof V Allan, Dr S Herbert
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Neuronal differentiation during embryonic development is a fundamentally important process that ultimately results in the formation of functional neural circuitry.
  (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.
  (BBSRC DTP) Epigenetic mechanisms of behavioural, placental and cognitive impairment in a neurodevelopmental model for schizophrenia
  Dr R Hager, Prof J Neill, Dr J Glazier
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A fundamental unknown in understanding mechanisms of disease, and therefore improving therapy, is how stressors experienced during critical developmental periods influence the genesis or ‘programming’ of adult disease (Estes & McAllister 2016).
  (BBSRC DTP) Examining the neural pathways controlling human swallowing in the older brain through cortical and peripheral neurostimulation
  Prof S Hamdy, Prof R Elliott
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ageing process involves physiological and neurological changes that diminish swallowing safety and efficiency, which may increase the risk of life-threatening complications such as malnutrition and aspiration pneumonia.
  (BBSRC DTP) Light-dependent control of physiology via the brain’s central clock
  Dr T Brown, Dr D Bechtold, Dr G D'Agostino
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Aside from helping us perceive the world around us, light is a key regulator of physiology and behaviour due to its influence on the brains internal clock in the suprachiasmatic nuclei (SCN).
  (BBSRC DTP) Modulating the microtubule network to improve nerve regeneration
  Dr N Gardiner, Prof A Prokop, Dr I Hahn, Dr A Reid
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Axon terminals typically undergo dynamic extension and retraction processes in response to stimuli such as neurotrophic factors, physical stimuli or damage.
