  *IAPETUS* Gene expression and sexual selection in sex role reversed flies
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Prof MG Ritchie
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Empid flies (commonly known as dance flies) are exceptional in displaying elaborate sexually selected morphologies and behaviours in females.
  Impacts of El Nino Costero on fishing and fisher communities in Peru
  Research Group: Scottish Oceans Institute
  Prof A Brierley, Prof ND Laurie
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The El Nino Southern Oscillation (ENSO) has a major impact on fishery production in the Humboldt Current off Peru, so much so that El Nino years are readily apparent in downward dips in annual time series of global fish catch.
  Expression and function of homeobox genes during regeneration in cephalochordates
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr I Somorjai
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Cephalochordates ("amphioxus" or "lancelet") are an ideal model for studying developmental and regenerative processes (Bertrand and Escriva 2011; Somorjai 2017).
  Studying cell-cell interactions during collective cell migration during Drosophila tissue morphogenesis
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr M Bischoff
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Background. To shape tissues and organs, cells undergo different behaviours, such as cell migration and shape change. Many morphogenetic processes rely on collective cell migration, where cells move coordinately as a group (Scarpa and Mayor, 2016).
  Ghrelin-based therapies for ALS – understanding mechanisms of action
  Dr G H Doherty, Dr J Harvey
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Ghrelin is an endogenous growth hormone secretagogue and neuropeptide that enhances food intake and appetite, and which signals via the GHSR1 receptor.
  Quantitative interactomics to identify cellular pathways affected in Spinal Muscular Atrophy
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr J Sleeman
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
This project is offered as part of the SPRINT-MND/MS PhD Programme. Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) is an inherited neurodegenerative condition resulting from production of insufficient amounts of the Survival Motor Neurones (SMN) protein due to mutuation or deletion of the SMN1 gene.
  Stochastic modelling of populations of interacting cells with complex underlying phenotypes
  Dr G Minas, Dr T Lorenzi
Applications accepted all year round
Individual based models describe the stochastic evolution of interacting individuals-cells with different phenotypes. Reaction networks on the other hand describe the stochastic interactions between different phenotypes-molecular species within a single cell.
  Plasmodesmal gating by a contractile cellular machinery
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr J Tilsner
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Background. Plant viruses are major crop pathogens with a global agro-economic impact. The Tilsner lab has recently made major advances in understanding how they transport their genome from infected into naïve cells through plasmodesmata (PD), cell-cell-connecting membrane-lined channels.
