  Improving language skills in children with hearing loss by developing a parent-delivered training programme based on Theory-of-Mind skills
  Dr A Heinrich, Dr H Chilton, Dr C Adams
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hearing loss is the most prevalent sensory deficit experienced by children. In the UK alone, more than 45000 children have a hearing loss.
  Improving the lives of older adults with hearing loss: Developing a self-report measure of effortful listening to guide clinical practice
  Dr A Heinrich, Prof K Munro, Dr R Millman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hearing loss is the most prevalent sensory deficit. In the UK, more than 10 million adults have a hearing loss. Because it is often associated with old age and the size of the older population is growing, it is predicted that there will be more than 14 million people with a hearing loss by 2030.
  Improving quality of life through addressing communication needs for people in residential care living with dementia
  Dr P Dawes, Dr R Millman, Dr I Leroi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The majority of the 420,000 UK care home residents are affected by both dementia and hearing impairment. Many cases of hearing impairment in care home settings are undiagnosed and/or unsupported.
  The effect of female sex hormones on hearing and tinnitus.
  Dr K Kluk
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sex hormones fluctuate in level in women, both during the lifespan and during the ovarian cycle. Recent research suggests that oestrogen is neuroprotective, and may affect auditory function.
  Developing a questionnaire to assesses patients’ experiences of audiology services
  Prof K Munro, Prof C Armitage
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is growing interest in measuring patients’ experiences of clinical services. This can be used to measure quality, evaluate quality improvement initiatives and compare services.
  Developing a therapy for hearing loss using human pluripotent stem cells
  Prof M Rivolta
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The vast majority of cases of deafness are produced by the irreversible loss of the sensory hair cells and their associated neurons.
  The Effects of Prior Conditioning on Susceptibility to Noise Damage in Young People
  Prof C Plack, Dr G Prendergast
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is increasing concern that young people are damaging their hearing through recreational activities such as attendance at live music events and use of personal listening devices.
  Investigating how tactile cues can influence people’s perception of healthy food.

This is a self-funded/sponsored PhD opportunity. BACKGROUND. Bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) is a major respiratory consequence of premature birth (Walsh et al., 2006).
  Theoretical and computational methods for sensory biology
  Prof IS Solov'yov
Application Deadline: 1 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The overall goal of this research project is to advance computational modelling techniques such as the molecular dynamics (MD) or free energy perturbation approaches to permit computational studies of biological macromolecules and molecular assemblies that are central to the molecular basis of many sensory processes (including vision, hearing, magnetoreception).
