  Novel imaging biomarkers for prognosis of developmental outcomes in babies born preterm using machine-learning
  Dr M Deprez
Applications accepted all year round
1st Supervisor - Dr Maria Deprez. 2nd Supervisor - Dr Marc Modat. The aim of this project is to take advantage of state-of-the-art machine learning algorithms to improve our understanding of brain development and neurocognitive outcomes in babies born preterm.
  Exploring ‘child’ to parent violence
  Research Group: Criminology and Sociology
  Prof C Rogers
Applications accepted all year round
To what extent is child to parent violence recognised within the legal system, as adults with challenging behaviours commit acts of violence against their parents and how is this experienced as an everyday occurrence?.
  Chromatin remodelling in health and disease: determining the role of ATRX in the maintenance of chromatin and how mutations perturb disparate nuclear nuclear processes and lead to human disease
  Dr R Gibbons, Prof D Higgs
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
It has become apparent that the regulation of chromatin structure is of paramount importance in a wide variety of fundamental nuclear processes including gene expression, DNA replication, repair and recombination.
  Information Component Analysis via Deep Learning
  Dr K Chen
Applications accepted all year round
As their prominent characteristics, perceptual data often convey the mixing information, which often results in the inadequate performance for a specific perceptual information processing task due to the interference of irrelevant information components.
  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.
  Self-Regulation, Dysregulation, and Misregulation in Youth Sport: to use a mixture of quanitative and qualitative methods to examine self-regulation and self-regulation difficulties in youth sport.
  Dr J Cumming
Applications accepted all year round
Self-regulation is fundamental to successful learning and performance and having having well-developed skills to manage thoughts, feelings, and behaviours enables young athletes to realise their potential in sport as well as other life domains.
  Understanding cognition, behaviour and learning in rare genetic syndromes
  Dr M Freeth
Applications accepted all year round
Rare genetic syndromes are often associated with a profile of strengths and difficulties that are different to those who are neurotypical.
  Anxiety and motivation in Autism – are social behavioural features driven by social anxiety rather than by a reduced reward response to social stimuli?
  Prof B Chakrabarti
Applications accepted all year round
Social behavioural difficulties are commonly reported by individuals with Autism Spectrum Conditions (ASC). One of the leading theories suggests that these difficulties are brought about by a reduced reward response to social stimuli, i.e.
  Exploring interventions to tackle service provider discrimination against Roma, Gypsy and Traveller Communities (RDF19/HLS/SWECW/DAVIES)
  Dr J Davies
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Roma, Gypsy and Traveller communities experience among the poorest health outcomes in society [1, 2]. Numerous structural barriers underpin these health inequalities, including significant difficulties in accessing health services, accommodation, education and employment [3-5].
  Patient safety and sepsis: Action research engaging nurses within their cultural climates and professional contexts to investigate, develop and improve sepsis identification and management
(RDF19/HLS/NMH/CONNER)
  Dr T Conner
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Sepsis is a prevalent but often unrecognised life-threatening condition; a hazard to patient safety health and wellbeing, causing approximately six million mostly avoidable deaths worldwide each year (NCEPOD, 2015; Technology.org, 2017).
