PhD Studentship in thyroid hormones
28 Nov 2019

Oxford Brookes University are offering a PhD Studentship in the role of thyroid hormones during fetal growth and development.

The aim of this PhD studentship is to investigate the mechanisms by which hypothyroidism in utero influences the activity of the fetal HPA axis.  In collaboration with colleagues at the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge, the project will use immunohistochemistry to assess neuronal networks and pituitary cell populations, and tissue culture to examine the secretory capacity of the fetal pituitary in vitro.

For further information contact Dr Alison Forhead: aforhead@brookes.ac.uk

Eligibility: Home UK/EU applicants who must be permanently resident in the UK/EU.  Applicants should have a first or upper second class honours degree in physiology or related discipline.

Start date: September 2020 
Closing date: 31 December 2019
