  A comparison of transcriptome signature of resistance exercise adaptations in young, older adults and athlete
  Dr N Clarke, Dr P Mundy, Dr I Haussmann
Application Deadline: 12 April 2019
Greater muscular strength is strongly associated with improved physical performance in athletes. A recent investigation identified 16 loci associated with handgrip strength; however, handgrip strength is a poor indicator of athletic performance.
  Predicting falls in the older adults close to a fall event by continuous monitoring of physical behaviour patterns using body-worn monitors
  Dr M Granat, Dr S Thies, Prof L Kenney
Applications accepted all year round
Falls are a major health problem in the elderly population and prevention is needed. One in three (3.4 million) individuals over 60 years of age experience at least one fall every year.
  PhD Studentship: Developing a hybrid simulation modelling approach to planning integrated care services
  Dr A Tako
Application Deadline: 26 April 2019
Application details. Reference number. SBE-ATSLR19. Start date of studentship. 1 October 2019. Closing date of advert. 26 April 2019.
  Self-association of the Alzheimer’s peptide Aβ on membrane surfaces
  Prof M P Williamson
Applications accepted all year round
Alzheimer’s disease is a neurodegenerative disease that is particularly common amongst the elderly. It accounts for about 65% of all cases of dementia, and affects about 6% of people over 65, rising to 50% of people over 85.
  Dynamic prediction modelling in Parkinson’s disease
  Dr D McLernon, Dr A Macleod
Application Deadline: 29 March 2019
1. Background to the project. Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a progressive, disabling, neurodegenerative disorder which is common in the elderly.
  Edge Computing for Internet of Things (Self-Funded Students Only)
  Research Group: Complex Systems
  Prof O F Rana, Dr C Perera
Applications accepted all year round
This project has two different research themes. (1) Edge Computing; (2) Data Science. (1) Edge Computing is the notion of performing computation close to the data generation source, by significantly reducing data communication latency and ensuring that private data is maintained closer to the data generation source.
  Privacy-aware home activity monitoring and automated analysis system
  Dr M Mata, Dr R Gibson, Prof L Paul
Application Deadline: 28 March 2019
This project aims to develop a smart distributed environmental system able to sense and learn activity patterns from the users at their homes, then find deviations from the usual patterns that could highlight a number of potential issues.
  Security for mass scale remote health monitoring using IoT and machine learning
  Dr K Owens, Dr H Larijani, Prof J Woodburn
Application Deadline: 29 April 2019
Currently, research into security for wearable devices using Internet of Things (IoT), for controlling patients’ health indicators remotely is of interest.
  Electromagnetic Sensors for Wearable Healthcare Applications
  Dr D Anagnostou
Applications accepted all year round
Wearable electronics technology for healthcare management, personal safety, and consumer products enhancement has the potential to transform our everyday life and improve the quality of living of healthcare patients and athletes.
