  The impact of health and fitness social media on physical activity and body image in adolescents
  Dr C Kerner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Around 50% of young people engage with health and fitness content on social media (Crane et al., 2015). Young people’s engagement with health-related social media has been shown to impact their health-related knowledge and behaviours, such as physical activity, diet and mental health (Goodyear and Quennerstedt, 2019).
  Combining Synthetic Biology and Modelling to Understand and Predict Evolution
  Dr M Lagator, Dr J-M Schwartz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mutations, and their effects on organismal fitness, lie at the heart of understanding and predicting evolution. Because of its central role in determining evolutionary outcomes, much experimental and theoretical effort has been put into describing the fitness effects of mutations.
  Pragmatic, positive and innovative approaches to tackle doping in amateur-, fitness- and sport to elite competitive sport
  Prof A Petroczi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The recent scandals in sport (e.g., the Lance Armstrong case, systematic doping in Russia, cover ups in IAAF) have questioned the legitimacy of the current anti-doping approach - and drawn attention to the multiple issues that warrant attention.
  Investigation of a Novel Regulator of Plant Yield and Fitness in Plants
  Dr P Gallois, Dr G Johnson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Autophagy is an incredibly important and highly conserved process across eukaryotes and involves the regulated destruction of unnecessary or damaged components within the cell.
  Understanding the role of fitness in determining the cardiovascular risk associated with exercise blood pressure
  Dr M Schultz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Expressions of interest are sought from suitable candidates to undertake a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) research higher degree in clinical cardiovascular exercise physiology at the Menzies Institute for Medical Research, University of Tasmania, Hobart, Australia.
  Epigenetic mechanisms of phenotypic plasticity and the evolution of adaptive responses
  Dr R Hager, Prof J McInerney
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We now live in a world of rapidly changing environmental conditions where species will need to adapt or perish. While populations may evolve in response to environmental change, more rapid responses may happen through processes like phenotypic plasticity.
  Testing Robotics and Autonomous Systems Using Search-based Techniques
  Research Group: Applied Computing
  Dr RE Lefticaru, Prof D Neagu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Robotics and Autonomous Systems (RAS) are becoming indispensable for human productivity and it is estimated that there will be a £13 billion global market for RAS by 2025.
  Plant responses to stress, metabolites for health and fuel from cell walls.
  Prof A Devoto
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Projects are available in the following areas. Stress responses in crops and sustainable biomass production and processing. The project aims at elucidating several aspects of the control of plant defences and to identify environmentally friendly forms of plant protectants, leading to enhanced crop yields.
  Evaluating the effects of commercial exercise programmes and combined dietary strategies on cardio-metabolic risk
