  What is the impact of atypical neurogenesis on brain activity, cognition and behaviour?
  Dr A McNeill, Dr M Freeth
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neurogenesis is the process by which stem cells form brain cells. This process is disrupted by genetic mutations causing childhood neurological disorders which cause symptoms such as learning disability, behaviour problems and epilepsy.

  Information Component Analysis via Deep Learning
  Dr K Chen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Sparsity and structures in large-scale machine learning problems.
  Dr B Gauthier, Prof A Balinsky
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The terminology “big data” is generally used to refer to datasets that are too large or complex for traditional data-processing technics to adequately deal with them.
  Characterising coordination difficulties in autism using computational techniques
  Dr E Gowen, Dr E Poliakoff, Dr A Casson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Autism is a life-long developmental condition that affects how a person communicates and interacts with people. ~80% of autistic individuals also have altered motor control such as less accurate eye-hand coordination and abnormal gait patterns, causing considerable problems with activities of daily living.
  An investigation into the effect of team-based learning (TBL) on the development of professionalism in pharmacy students
  Research Group: Education Innovation Research and Development
  Dr G Quinn, Dr S Jones, Dr S Twedell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In 2015 the General Pharmaceutical Council reviewed its Standards of Conduct, Ethics and Performance, aiming to ensure that patients and others are “confident that they are receiving care from professionals who are wholly focused on delivering patient-centred care” (GPhC, 2015).
  Anxiety and social motivation in Autism
  Prof B Chakrabarti
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Computerised assessment of visuo-spatial neglect following stroke
  Dr D Punt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Following a stroke, it is common for people to have problems with spatial awareness (also referred to as ’visuo-spatial neglect’, or just ‘neglect’).
  Numerical modelling of cracked engineering materials under dynamic loading
  Dr O Menshykov, Dr M Menshykova, Prof I Guz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

It is common knowledge that all existing structural materials contain various inter- and intra-component cracks and crack-like defects which appear in materials during fabrication or in-service.
  Thermally superconducting and superinsulating nanofluids and their use in nanodevices
  Dr M N Campbell-Bannerman, Dr J Derksen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nanotechnology is the forefront of a new industrial revolution. As the scale of new devices shrink, the design bottle-neck becomes getting rid of waste heat.

Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a PhD studentship, to be undertaken at Imperial College London (Electrical and Electronic Engineering Department).
  Development of methodologies to accelerate alloy design for additive manufacturing
  Research Group: MAPP - Manufacture using Advanced Powder Processes
  Dr K Christofidou
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ability to produce parts with complex geometries, previously inaccessible via traditional fabrication methods, has made additive manufacturing (AM) an enabling production process for a host of industries.
