  *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.
  *EASTBIO* Building for a changing world: how do breeding birds respond to temperature variation?
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Prof S Healy, Prof S Meddle
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BBSRC Thematic Group. Frontier Bioscience. It may seem obvious that a bird’s nest plays an important role in reproduction. For example, the eggs or young in a nest that is exposed to predators, in a nest that gets too wet or too cold or is too loosely attached to a branch are unlikely to survive.
  EASTBIO Pre-natal soundscapes: understanding the functional significance of embryonic responses to external sounds
  Prof K Spencer, Prof S Meddle
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pre-natal soundscapes. understanding the functional significance of embryonic responses to external sounds. The avian egg represents a feat of evolutionary engineering, providing all the components required for embryonic growth in a self-contained package.
  EASTBIO The neural basis of descending motor control
  Dr S Pulver, Dr M Zwart
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A central view in neuroscience is that brain neurons produce the commands to start, stop and change movements,. while neurons in the spinal cord carry them out.
  EASTBIO The role of sequential effects in multisensory processing: A combined computational modelling and electrophysiology study
  Dr T Otto, Dr I Jentzsch
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The availability of multiple senses is highly beneficial to control behaviour.
  EASTBIO Neuroplasticity of a spinal motor circuit
  Dr W Li, Dr I Somorjai
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

One primary function for vertebrate spinal cord is to generate commands to control rhythmic locomotion like walking, swimming or running.
  How does a mammalian cell physically organise the complex processes of gene expression and regulation?
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr J Sleeman
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Accurate gene expression and regulation in mammalian cells is a hugely complex process, essential for cellular and organismal homeostasis.
  Impaired stress response as a pathological mechanism in Myotonic Dystrophy Type 1 and related degenerative conditions
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr J Sleeman
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Myotonic Dystrophy Type1 (DM1) is an incurable inherited multi-system disease that results in numerous symptoms including early cataract development, which can be the first sign of the disease.
