  Cardiac energetics and integrative physiology: Studying key components of the creatine kinase system to understand how they contribute to the pathophysiology of ischaemic heart disease and chronic heart failure.
  Prof C Lygate, Dr S Zervou
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Studying key components of the creatine kinase system to understand how they contribute to the pathophysiology of ischaemic heart disease and chronic heart failure.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Detection of ultra-low frequency heart rate variability markers of disease using AI beat detection and HRV modelling
  Dr R Barrett-Jolley, Dr J Bacardit, Dr I Welters
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Background information. If someone says, "my heart beats steady as a rock", they probably need to be warned that this could be a warning of the increased likelihood of an impending heart attack.
  Circadian rhythm of heart rate regulation in diabetes
  Dr R Lamberts, Dr CT Bussey
Applications accepted all year round
Resting heart rate is the strongest predictor of mortality in patients with cardiac disease. Incompetence in heart rate regulation is an undervalued feature of the diabetic heart with major cardiovascular consequences.
  Multiscale Determinants of Myocardial Mechanics
  Dr D Nordsletten
Applications accepted all year round
First Supervisor. Dr David Nordsletten. Second Supervisor. Professor Reza Razavi. Understanding the health and function of heart muscle is critical to the assessment of a range of cardiac pathologies.
  Interleukin 1 signalling the heart
  Prof A Clerk
Applications accepted all year round
"Heart failure is associated with high levels of morbidity and mortality, and is an increasing health problem worldwide. One cause is myocardial infarction (MI; “heart attack”) in which coronary arteries become blocked preventing oxygenation of the heart.
  Harnessing stem cells to develop regenerative therapies for childhood heart disease.
  Dr E Porrello, Dr D Elliott
Applications accepted all year round
LABORATORY OVERVIEW. The Cardiac Regeneration Laboratory is seeking highly motivated PhD students to work on a project related to understanding the underlying causes of congenital heart disease and developing novel regenerative therapies.
  Invertebrate communities in hollowing trees
  Dr T H Jones, Prof L Boddy
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Background. In standing trees, most decay occurs in the heartwood (heart-rot). The rotted hearts of trees release nutrients for tree growth and provide habitat for assemblages of saproxylic bacteria and fungi, invertebrates and vertebrates.
  Causes of stress induced cardiac arrhythmia
  Dr J Winter, Dr D Pavlovic
Applications accepted all year round
Abnormal heart rhythms, known as arrhythmia, are a major cause of morbidity and mortality, particularly in individuals with pre-existing cardiovascular disease.
  Cardiotoxicity of cancer drugs targeting the extracellular signal-regulated kinase 1/2 (ERK1/2) cascade
  Prof A Clerk
Applications accepted all year round
"Heart failure is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. The contractile cells of the heart, cardiomyocytes, possess many protective mechanisms, allowing them to withstand pathophysiological stresses.
  Development and Optimisation of a Biohybrid Heart Assist Device
  Prof S Korossis
Application Deadline: 28 January 2019
Reference number. WS19. Start date of studentship. 1st October 2019. Closing date of advert. 28th January 2019. Interview date. TBC.
