  Investigation of molecular mechanisms of Intellectual disability using human-brain organoids
  Dr E Kang, Dr D Berg
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Intellectual disability (ID) is a condition characterized by significant limitation in cognitive ability and adaptive behaviours with a disease onset before adulthood.
  Developing nutritional guidelines for human breast milk bank donors
  Dr S Dyall, Dr Y Jeanes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Appropriate nutrition is particularly important for preterm infants, since their maternal nutrient supply has been prematurely interrupted.
  Neurocomputational mechanisms of modularity in human motor control
  Research Group: School of Biomedical Sciences
  Dr I Delis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human motor behaviour is the outcome of the combined action of an extensive neural circuit that generates and controls movement and the mechanical properties of the human body.
  Our Mission: to Educate, Nurture and Discover for the benefit of Human Health

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our ultimate purpose is to work in service of patients. RCSI was founded by Royal Charter on 11th February 1784, to set and support professional standards for surgical training and practice in Ireland.
  (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.
  The first comprehensive assessment of human infant brain injury tissue
  Dr V Miron, Dr A Williams
Application Deadline: 26 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The newly established four-year Medical Sciences & Translational Research PhD with integrated studies in Engagement for Impact Programme will combine medical…
  Exploring the mitotic functions of ASPM in human brain size regulation
  Dr J Bond, Dr E E Morrison, Prof M Peckham
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The increase in relative brain size is one of the most striking events in human evolution. To determine how human brain size is normally regulated we have investigated the cause of autosomal recessive primary microcephaly (MCPH), a congenital disorder of reduced brain size and associated mental retardation.
  Auditory cognition and human factors
  Dr P Beaman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Expressions of interest are invited on any topics related to either auditory cognition and working memory or to human factors as they relate to energy conservation and climate change.
  Sequence variation and epigenomic mechanisms underlying human neuropsychiatric and neurodegenerative diseases
  Dr HM Knight
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is the decade of the ‘brain’ and this is also the decade of advancements in ‘genomic technologies’. This project aims to use cutting edge sequencing technologies to understand susceptibility to human disorders of the brain.
  Investigating the attentional consequences of the uncanny valley
  Dr E Poliakoff, Dr E Gowen, Dr C Capek
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The “uncanny valley” was hypothesed by roboticist Mori in 1970, whereby people would like robots of increasingly human-likeness until they were close to, but not fully human.
  Mechanistic analysis of neurodevelopmental disorders caused by mutations in the gene RAC1
  Dr T Millard, Dr S Banka
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

RAC1 is a signalling protein that regulates many cellular processes and is essential during embryonic development. We recently discovered a novel genetic disease called RAC1-related neurodevelopmental disorder (RRND) that results from mutations in the RAC1 gene.
  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.
  The impact of gut microbiome and diet interplay on neurodegeneration
  Dr E Kevei
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s or Huntington’s disease represent major health risks and economic burden for the society.
  The potential of elevating Epac2 to modulate glial activation and promote motor neuron regeneration in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
  Dr W Huang, Dr G S Bewick
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is a fatal neurodegenerative disease characterised by the selective degeneration and death of motor neurons.
  Biologically-Plausible Continual Learning
  Dr K Chen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Continual learning (aka lifelong learning) refers to a problem on how a learning system learns multiple tasks in succession over the lifespan where later tasks do not degrade the performance of the system learned for the earlier tasks and, ideally, the system can leverage the knowledge learned in previous tasks to facilitate learning the new tasks better.
