  Understanding eye-hand coordination in object interception – a computational modelling approach
  Dr S-H Yeo
Applications accepted all year round
This PhD project with Dr Yeo will focus on understanding how we perform interception. Interceptive movements--such as catching a gently thrown ball, quickly grabbing a tilting cup to avoid spilling or even just handshaking someone--feel like trivial everyday tasks for us that seemingly look too simple to study.
  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.
  More than meets the eye? Using eye movements to understand the cognitive mechanisms underlying reading
  Dr V McGowan, Prof K Paterson
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
As we read our eyes make a series of brief pauses to extract visual information from the text, separated by rapid movements which bring new words into central vision.
  Exploring implementation and mechanisms of change in engagement and mental health outcomes following the Early Youth Engagement (EYE-2) intervention (3 year SeNSS Collaborative Studentship funded by ESRC)
  Research Group: Developmental and Clinical Psychology Group
  Dr K Greenwood, Prof A Field
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019
Supervisors. Kathryn Greenwood (Professor of Clinical Psychology/CI of the EYE-2 project), Andy Field (Professor of Quantitative Methods), Dr Stuart Clark (Sussex EIP clinical lead), supported by Beth Lawton (chief digital/information officer), Professor Carl May (implementation scientist).
  Understanding Gene Regulatory Networks Transitions in Early Eye Development
  Research Group: MRC Human Genetics Unit
  Prof D FitzPatrick
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
This is one of several projects available on an MRC funded 4-year multi-disciplinary PhD programme in Human Genetics, Genomics and Disease at the MRC Human Genetics Unit (HGU), part of the Institute of Genetics and Molecular Medicine (IGMM) at the University of Edinburgh.
  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.
  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.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Evaluation of adult stem cell differentiation in the trabecular meshwork of the eye as a regenerative medicine approach for Glaucoma using novel polymer 3D scaffolds
  Dr CM Sheridan, Dr R Oldershaw, Dr A P Meeson
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Glaucoma is a leading cause of irreversible blindness in the world and is an optic neuropathy affecting the vision of older adults.
  *IAPETUS* Gene expression and sexual selection in sex role reversed flies
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Prof MG Ritchie
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Empid flies (commonly known as dance flies) are exceptional in displaying elaborate sexually selected morphologies and behaviours in females.
  Insights into eye disease: understanding the molecular basis of age-related macular degeneration
  Prof T Day, Dr S Clark
Applications accepted all year round
Dysregulation of innate immunity has been implicated as playing a key role in the development of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) – a major form of blindness in the industrialised world (see [1-5]).
