  How does the brain make decisions when faced with conflicting options?
  Dr C Rezaval
Application Deadline: 30 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Animals engage in daily activities that are essential for survival and reproduction, such as feeding, mating or fighting for resources.
  Molecular genetic characterization of Drosophila reproductive behaviours for exploitation in insect population control
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr M Soller
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Female reproductive behaviours in most insects profoundly change after mating leading to rejection of courting males and induction of egg laying.
  mRNA epigenetics: Charaterization of a novel layer of gene regulation for essential brain functions
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr M Soller, Dr P Grzechnik
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

For over 40 years we know about modified nucleotides in mRNA, but the functions for these essential modifications are largely elusive.
  Behavioural and brain mechanisms of social decision-making across the lifespan and in antisocial behaviour.
  Dr P Lockwood, Dr J Galea, Dr S De Brito
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The social decision neuroscience lab (www.sdn-lab.org) is offering a competitively funded project examining the fundamental behavioural, computational and neural mechanisms of social decision-making in humans.
  Cognitive deficits and accelerated brain ageing in older adults at risk for undiagnosed sleep apnea
  Dr M Chechlacz, Prof H Dehghani
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cognitive ageing is inevitable but numerous studies indicate a large heterogeneity in the rate of cognitive deterioration, ranging from a gradual drop in cognitive functioning to dementia.
  The genetics of cognitive ageing: neuromodulators and prefrontal cortex
  Dr M Chechlacz, Prof G Gkoutos, Dr P C Hansen
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neuromodulators including dopamine, noradrenaline, serotonin, and acetylcholine have been implicated in numerous cognitive functions and behaviours.
  Understanding the role that the RNA helicase UPF1 plays in sorting ribonucleoprotein (RNP) complexes and the mechanism by which this role of UPF1 might reduce cellular stress and cell degeneration.
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr S Brogna
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project’s specific objective is to study the molecular role(s) that the RNA helicase UPF1 plays in RNA processing. UPF1 is a key player in nonsense-mediated mRNA decay (NMD), it is universally conserved in eukaryotes and is essential to the development of many organisms [1].
  The integration of visually-guided interception with balance
  Dr R Reynolds, Dr S-H Yeo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Control of fast interceptive movements is the highlight of human sensorimotor behaviour, whose flexibility and adaptability far surpasses that of any existing robot.
