Investigating neuronal patterning and development


Faculty of Science, Engineering and Computing

About the Project

This 3-year PhD will study molecular and cellular mechanisms of neuronal patterning and neural development using ex vivo/in vitro methods (mouse/human tissue/cells) and/or in vivo methods (invertebrates). Results from this work will provide new insights into neuronal organisation.

The student will be trained in techniques including handling ex vivo tissue, cell culture, RNA/qRT-PCR analysis, bioinformatics, protein analysis (Western blotting), microscopy, and immunohistochemistry/ immunofluorescence.

The student will be part of the Vision, Cognition and Neuroscience (VCN) group at Kingston University London (https://www.kingston.ac.uk/faculties/science-engineering-and-computing/research/research-centres/ihsha/vision-cognition-and-neuroscience/), which lies within the Interdisciplinary Hub for the Study of Health and Age-related conditions (IhSHA Research Centre https://www.kingston.ac.uk/faculties/science-engineering-and-computing/research/research-centres/ihsha/).

Applicants should have or be expecting to obtain at least an Upper Second (2i) class degree in a related subject. Experience in laboratory work or an MSc/MScR would be an advantage, but training can be given. The student should be enthusiastic, self-motivated, and committed to carrying out their own research.

This PhD project will be available in Summer/Autumn 2019.
