  Analysis of pathogen determinants recognized by the hypervariable immune receptor Dscam
  Dr M Soller
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. To mount an immune response, host organisms must first recognize the pathogen with which they are infected. The first line of defense against pathogen infection in animals is provided through the innate immune response.
  *EASTBIO* Adaptation in Exploratory Processes
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Prof K N Laland, Prof G Ruxton
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BBSRC Thematic Group. Frontier Bioscience. Organisms often respond to new challenges through ‘exploratory mechanisms’ (Gerhart & Kirschner, 1997), which are complex developmental systems that operate by generating variation (i.e.
  The representation of syntax in English and Mandarin Chinese
  Dr B Yao, Dr A Stewart
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

How syntax (language structure) is mentally represented in the brain is an ancient and challenging question in cognitive sciences.
  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.
  Structural plasticity and regeneration in the Drosophila brain.
  Dr A Hidalgo
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The brain is plastic. neurons and glia make adjustments in cell size and shape (dendrites, axons), in synapses, and in cell number, throughout life.
  Inflammation and Oxidative stress in Early Psychosis: a multimodal data science and brain imaging approach
  Dr R Upthegrove, Dr M Katshu
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

3rd supervisor. Professor Peter Liddle (University of Nottingham). Activation of the innate immune system is of increasing interest in the pathogenesis of psychosis.
  EASTBIO: Studying brain architecture using molecular imaging of single synapses
  Prof S Grant, Dr M Horrocks
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A major conceptual advance in our understanding of the mammalian nervous system is that the vast numbers of synapses – the junctions between nerve cells - are highly diverse [1].
