  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.
  Investigation of optical properties of the cornea
  Prof A Augousti, Dr A Al-kinani
Applications accepted all year round
The cornea is an essential component in the human optical system and provides the main refracting power of the eye, approximately twice as much as the human lens.
  Diagnosis and management of corneal conditions based on its response to dynamic excitation by an external air puff
  Prof A Elsheikh
Application Deadline: 8 August 2019
This position will remain open until a suitable candidate has been found. Keratoconus is a genetic condition that affects cornea’s microstructure and leads to progressive distortion in corneal surface and loss of clear vision.
  Medical Imaging and Artificial Intelligence Technologies for the detection of Eye Diseases
  Research Group: Visual Computing
  Prof R Qahwaji
Applications accepted all year round
This project aims to develop Visual Computing and Artificial Intelligence-Based System for the Diagnosis of Infectious keratitis in the Cornea.
  Contribution of mechanical action to the initiation and progression of keratoconus
  Dr B Geraghty, Mr V Romano, Dr H Levis
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019
Keratoconus (KC) is the most prevalent form of idiopathic corneal ectasia and is characterized by progressive thinning and conical protrusion of the cornea.
  Determination of hyper-elasticity, viscoelasticity and anisotropy of ocular tissue
  Prof A Elsheikh
Application Deadline: 8 August 2019
This position will remain open until a suitable candidate has been found.
  Targeting NAD+ for retinal ganglion cell protection in experimental glaucoma
  Mr J Morgan, Dr M Votruba
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
Applications are invited for a fully-funded 3-year PhD studentship to study novel neuroprotective strategies for the treatment of glaucoma at the Cardiff University School of Optometry and Vision Sciences and the Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden.
  Natural products as prophylaxis and treatment for gonococcal eye infections
  Dr L Snyder
Applications accepted all year round
Neisseria gonorrhoeae bacteria can infect the eyes of infants born to mothers infected with gonorrhoea, up to 80% of whom have no symptoms of their disease.
  Using massively-paralleled sequencing to find the cause of inherited conditions that affect the front of the eye
  Dr M Ali, Prof C Inglehearn
Applications accepted all year round
Eye diseases are a common cause of human disability and many of them are inherited. These include congenital as well as adult-onset conditions and diseases of ageing, and may involve abnormalities at the back of the eye or the anterior eye structures.
  BBSRC iCASE Project: Supercritical Sterilisation for Biological Tissue Transplant Products
  Dr L White
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
One of the significant challenges for translation of any tissue derived products is to ensure sterility without compromising structural and biochemical integrity and clinical performance.
