  (BBSRC DTP) Uncovering the mechanism(s) responsible for a novel neurite co-orientation process
  Dr C Dobson, Prof Keith Crutcher, Dr T Brown, Prof R Baines
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

How do neurons decide where to grow? Although there is evidence for the role of growth factors (diffusible or bound) as well as electrical activity, the specific mechanism remains elusive.
  EASTBIO: Brain mechanisms underlying the interaction between language and visual attention.
  Dr J Rommers, Dr S Andersen
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisors. Dr Joost Rommers (University of Aberdeen). http://www.joostrommers.com. Dr Soren K Andersen (University of Aberdeen).
  Controlling the emergent dynamical phenomena in neural circuits engineered in vitro
  Dr N Janson, Dr A Balanov, Dr P Roach
Application Deadline: 1 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will be dedicated to mathematical modelling of the collective dynamics in complex living neural networks engineered in vitro.
  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.
  (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.
  Lateral hypothalamus as a visual centre controlling arousal, autonomic function and reflex behaviours
  Dr T Brown, Dr D Bechtold
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In addition to supporting our conscious perception of the world around us, light and visual stimuli exert wide ranging effects on animal physiology and behaviour via hard-wired ‘reflexes’ which range from simple effects of light on sleep, alertness and neuroendocrine function to the avoidance of rapidly approaching objects.
  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.
  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 cannabinoids on pre- and post-synaptic activity during learning
  Prof N Hartell, Dr M Hamann
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

General Background. Learning and adaptation of behaviour requires long-term changes in the strength of synaptic transmission that in turn lead to alterations in the patterns of neuronal firing.
  Optogenenetic voltage reporting to understand cerebellar learning
  Dr R Empson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cerebellar Purkinje neurons, the main output neuron of the cerebellar cortex, undergo a variety of forms of synaptic plasticity that are thought to underlie aspects of motor learning.
  Deriving functional neurons from hIPSCs
  Dr E Delivopoulos, Dr F Tamagnini
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neuronal networks grown on petri dishes encode information as electrical activity. This activity is dictated by their underlying structural and functional connectivity.
  Fractional order modelling of neurons
  Dr S Hadjiloucas, Dr E Delivopoulos
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fractional order calculus (integro-differential equations that are of non-integral order) is an emerging methodology with wide applications across all areas of Physics and Engineering.
  Multi-modal neuroimaging of subcortical connectivity in flexible decision-making
  Dr A Christakou
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research in our lab investigates the neurobiological mechanisms that support learning from experience and adjusting subsequent decisions.
  Role of Sulfiredoxin-1 in maintaining neuronal function and redox homeostasis.
  Dr S Chawla, Dr S Sweeney
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type
