  Multiscale Determinants of Myocardial Mechanics
  Dr D Nordsletten
Applications accepted all year round
First Supervisor. Dr David Nordsletten. Second Supervisor. Professor Reza Razavi. Understanding the health and function of heart muscle is critical to the assessment of a range of cardiac pathologies.
  Neuronal and biomechanical mechanisms underlying the control and plasticity of aimed limb movements
  Dr T Matheson, Dr S Ott
Applications accepted all year round
Most animal movements are driven by muscle contractions controlled by the nervous system, but there is now considerable evidence that passive forces, originating in muscles, tendons or other tissues, interact with active forces to generate limb movements in both vertebrates and invertebrates (Page et al.
  Regional variation of biomechanical stiffness across the surface of the cornea using a non-contact method
  Prof A Elsheikh
Application Deadline: 8 August 2019
This position will remain open until a suitable candidate has been found. In vivo determination of the biomechanical properties of the cornea is essential for customisation of treatments for individual patient’s needs.
  Design and Development of Artificial Blood Vessels For Use in the Treatment of Peripheral Artery Disease
  Dr K Andrews
Applications accepted all year round
Reference Number. EMRC-KDA-2018-1-PhD. Project Summary. There is a lack of viable tissue engineering treatment options for peripheral artery disease, with many unanswered fundamental questions.
  Neuro-biomechanics of movement recovery (PomeroyVU18SF)
  Prof Valerie Pomeroy
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
The 3-year research investigation for this studentship will focus on advancing knowledge of the neuro-biomechanical mechanisms of movement recovery after stroke.
  Data-driven reconstruction algorithms for Magnetic Resonance Elastography
  Dr M Iglesias, Prof D Avitabile, Dr D McGrath
Applications accepted all year round
Modelling and Analytics for Medicine and Life sciences Doctoral Training Centre. PhD Scholarship. Supervisors. Marco Iglesias (School of Mathematical Sciences), Daniele Avitabile (School of Mathematical Sciences) and Deirdre McGrath (School of Medicine).
  Behavioural and biomechanical analysis of socially induced changes in body and brain structure in desert locusts
  Dr T Matheson, Dr S Ott
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
All animals can tailor their phenotype to the environmental conditions they experience during their lifetime. Such phenotypic plasticity typically entails coordinated changes in morphology, physiology and behaviour.
  Finite element modelling of heart valve deformation and mitral regurgitation after mitraclip implantation - Ref: LG2UF2018
  Dr L Zhao
Applications accepted all year round
he mitral valve (MV) is a complex structure regulating forward flow of blood between the left atrium (LA) and left ventricle (LV) of human heart.
  Development of a fluid-structure interaction model for artery diseases (Advert Reference: RDF19/EE/MCE/FAROKHI)
  Dr H Farokhi
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Based on the World Health Organization, ischaemic heart disease and stroke are the two leading causes of death globally, accounting for more than 15 million deaths in 2016.
  Tissue Engineering of Functional Cardiac Tissue using a Newly Characterised Cardiac Stem Cell Population
  Dr R Oldershaw, Dr R Barrett-Jolley, Dr A P Meeson
Applications accepted all year round
We will develop a novel route to create and test stem cell-derived engineered cardiac tissue for use in heart infarct repair or in vitro drug screening.
