About the PhD
This is a PhD project that is part of the Food DTP, funded by the BBSRC. The Food DTP project looks to understand the effects of endocrine disrupters, that leach from microplastics, on behaviour, aging and cognition using both cell-line based models and a novel worm model, C.elegans.
Successful candidates are fully funded for three years and will work with a collaborative team at the primary site (University of Reading) and a secondary site (Queens University, Belfast).
Motivated candidates with a 1st or upper 2:1 undergraduate degree interested in behaviour, neuroendocrinology, nuclear receptor biology, cell signaling and/or animal model development are encouraged to apply.
