  (MERI) Returning to the Ocean: The Transitional Mechanics of Legged Whales
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Dr W Sellers, Dr L Margetts
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
Darwinian evolution, descent with modification, is elegantly supported by the primary evidence that maps change within recognisable lineages in the fossil record.
  Human evolution and the Ecomorphology of Tree Climbing
  Dr S K Thorpe, Dr W Sellers
Application Deadline: 8 February 2019
Bipedalism and the extraordinary manipulative abilities of the human hand, that are central to tool use and technology, are widely considered to be two of the major hallmarks of humanity.
  Pedestrian-structure dynamic interaction on wobbly bridges – PhD (Funded)
  Prof S Zivanovic
Application Deadline: 17 February 2019
Location. Engineering, Streatham Campus, Exeter. The University of Exeter’s College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences is inviting applications for a fully-funded PhD studentship to commence on 23 September 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter.
  Synthesis of locomotor behaviours using realistic musculoskeletal models of bipeds and quadrupeds
  Dr M Daley, Dr J Hutchinson
Application Deadline: 10 February 2019
To achieve agile locomotion, animals must effectively integrate neural control with the physical properties of the musculoskeletal system [1].
  Understanding Life in the Freezer: locomotor performance as the key to understanding the possible influences of climate change in high Arctic species
  Dr J Codd, Dr R Nudds
Applications accepted all year round
Scientific research has focused on the Arctic recently as this region is at high risk from the effects of climate change. Animal energy budgets are linked to species survival and are composed of various factors including the cost of locomotion.
  PhD Studentship in the Institute of Neuroscience: Development and validation of gait digital outcomes as clinical endpoints in Parkinson’s disease
  Prof L Rochester, Dr S Del Din
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
Number of awards. 1. Start date and duration. April 2019 for three years. Overview. Interested in working as part of a large international consortium of Academic and industry partners? Do you like working with wearable technology and understanding how the way we walk can help us predict how (well or badly) we age?.
  Bio-inspiration from molluscs: flexible armour with embedded sensing capacity
  Dr J Sigwart, Dr A Brasier
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project will be supervised by Dr Julia Sigwart of Queen’s University School of Biological Sciences, Dr Alex Brasier of the University of Aberdeen’s School of Geosciences, and Mr Shaun Graham of Carl Zeiss Microscopy.
  Understanding a molecular architecture of the centriole / basal body
  Dr T Ochi
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The aim of this PhD project is to determine the molecular assembly mechanism of a structure of the centriole / basal body by a combined approach of structure biology (cryo-EM and X-ray crystallography) and biochemistry in order to understand underlying mechanisms that cause ciliopathies and cancer.
  Understanding bone mass using collageneases and aggrecanases
  Prof G Bou-Gharios
Applications accepted all year round
Bone is not only essential for locomotion, support and protection but crucial for many aspects of animal and human health. Specifically, bone is a calcium/phosphorous reservoir, is integral to glucose metabolism, houses the hematopoietic system and cross-talks with renal and reproductive systems.
  Objective assessment of gait and muscle function in dogs with neurologic disease
  Dr E Olsen, Dr M Daley
Application Deadline: 10 February 2019
In this project, you will work with a team of world-leading researchers in animal coordination and locomotion at the Royal Veterinary College to develop standards to assess coordination and muscle function in dogs with neurologic disease and for detection of clinically-relevant changes over time after intervention (surgery or non-surgical management).
