  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.
  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.
  What can pregnancy tell us about maternal behaviour? A neurohormonal investigation
  Research Group: Brain and Cognition Research Group
  Dr J Aspell, Dr F Cardini
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. Brain and Cognition Research Group - https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-engineering/research/institutes-and-groups/brain-and-cognition.
  PhD Scholarship in Neuroecology - Investigating the neural bases of animal behaviour in the context of its habitat and ecology.
  Prof S P Collin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our Research Laboratory lies at the intersection of two major fields of biology (Neurobiology. the study of the nervous system, and Ecology.
  It’s not what you see, but what it means to you: Changing perceptions of the environment to impact sedentary behaviour in children (ref: SF20/SER/LING)
  Dr F Ling
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the UK, 3 in 5 children are insufficiently physically active, spending on average 6 hours a day engaging in sedentary activities.
  MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT: Approach – Avoidance foraging; a novel and ethological rodent assay to evaluate anxiety-like behaviour and the brain networks that support it
  Dr R Apps, Dr B Lumb, Dr C Lawrenson
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 one year in one of our State-of-the-Art laboratories (and a year to write-up) at the University of Bristol and experience life as a researcher.
  Understanding the link between healthy ageing and social interaction
  Dr E Kevei, Dr N Vasudevan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Healthy ageing is a priority for all countries since we are living longer than ever before. A number of studies show that social behaviours can prevent some detrimental aspects of aging such as dementia and memory loss.
  MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT: Sleep and affective behaviour: exploring the long-lasting effects of chronic sleep loss in adolescence
  Dr L de Vivo
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.
  How protective signals from the gut modify neuronal activity and behaviour, using C. elegans as a model system.
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Dr P van Oosten-Hawle, Prof N Cohen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Amyloid protein misfolding leading to loss of neuronal function are fundamental pathogenic mechanisms of numerous age-associated neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer’s (AD).
  What is the impact of atypical neurogenesis on brain activity, cognition and behaviour?
  Dr A McNeill, Dr M Freeth
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neurogenesis is the process by which stem cells form brain cells. This process is disrupted by genetic mutations causing childhood neurological disorders which cause symptoms such as learning disability, behaviour problems and epilepsy.
  Molecular and genetic mechanisms of brain structural plasticity and neurodegeneration in the fruit-fly Drosophila.
  Dr A Hidalgo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The brain changes throughout life. brain plasticity enables the brain to adjust in response to experience, whereas during aging natural neurodegeneration takes over.
  Construction and attentional control of complex thought and behaviour
  Research Group: Brain and Cognition Research Group
  Prof P Bright, Dr M Pake, Dr I van der Linde
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Proposed supervisory team. Prof Peter Bright ([email protected]), Dr Mike Pake, ([email protected]) Dr Ian van der Linde ([email protected] ).
  Understanding obesity: studies on the top-down control of feeding behaviour
  Research Group: Metabolic Signalling
  Prof D J Withers
Application Deadline: 26 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Metabolic Signalling group investigates the role of the central nervous system in the regulation of energy homeostasis with a view to understanding the causes of metabolic diseases such as obesity and type 2 diabetes.
  Discovering molecular genetic mechanisms of central nervous system regeneration
  Dr A Hidalgo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Is it possible to promote regeneration of the central nervous system after injury, damage or disease? During normal development, neutrons and glia interact to coordinate the generations of neutrons and glia, and direct cell migration patterns, axonal navigation, dendritic arborisation and the emergence of neural circuits.
  Neural dynamics of drug-paired memory in the mouse brain
  Dr D Dupret
Application Deadline: 22 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited from UK or EU residents to join a multidisciplinary team of scientists studying brain network mechanisms supporting memory-guided behaviour.
