PhD Studentship (full-time, 3 years): “Testing the gliocentric hypothesis of brain pathology”

The Plymouth University Peninsula Schools of Medicine & Dentistry are seeking to attract PhD candidates of outstanding ability to join their exciting and rapidly expanding programme of internationally-rated research. Applications are invited from suitably qualified graduates, 2:1 or above, for a PhD Studentship in Professor Bob Fern’s laboratory. International students must also have an IELTS score of 7.0 or above (or equivalent qualification).

In the human brain, the astrocyte cell type outnumber the neuron cell type and have the principle function of providing for and protecting neurons. Any form of brain malfunction is therefore a failure of astrocyte function. There is increasingly convincing evidence that astrocyte failure plays an important role in a variety of conditions including stroke and neurodegenerative disorders. While there is a lot of data describing regional variability in neuronal susceptibility to injuries such as ischemia, nothing has been published on this subject for astrocytes despite the growing understanding of the significance of astrocytes to disease. This proposal will examine the regional variability of astrocyte tolerance of acute ischemia, relate this pattern to important neuropathies, and investigate the underlying mechanisms. An interest in basic and translational neuroscience is important, and a good degree in a biological subject. Full training in a number of major research techniques will be provided.
