  Basic and Applied Motivation science - the function and nature of human motivation
  Dr K Murayama
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a PhD student position on motivation science, a new emerging interdisciplinary area that examines the nature of human motivation.
  Motivation, competition, collaboration and goal-setting – How can we improve post-stroke rehabilitation?
  Dr S Dunne
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Engaging with brain injury rehabilitation is critical in improving the quality of life and maximising the functional improvements that survivors, such as those post-stroke, can make.
  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

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.
  Role of pentraxin and interaction with complement in immune defence against opportunistic infections
  Prof C Garlanda, Prof S Meri
Application Deadline: 10 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

PTX3 is a soluble pattern recognition molecule which acts as a key component of humoral innate immunity in opportunistic infections of fungal and bacterial origin.
  Generation, characterisation and commercialisation of native-restricted and neoepitope-specific monoclonal antibodies directed against the terminal complement protein C7
  Prof R Würzner, Prof Z Prohaszka
Application Deadline: 10 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Complement is one of the most important players in innate immune defense. Three activation pathways are triggered by multiple interactions and are amplified in cascades, leading to the activation of the terminal complement (TC) pathway.
  Modeling differentiation of human embryonic stem cells and induced pluripotent stem cells into endodermal derivatives
  Prof A Adamo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Laboratory of Stem Cells and Diseases (STEMD-Lab) is seeking a highly motivated candidate to develop a project based on the use of human embryonic stem cells (hES) and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) to derive glucose sensitive differentiated cell types (i.e.
  Identifying Dengue virus receptor proteins in Aedes aegypti mosquito
  Dr A Winter
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neglected tropical diseases caused by the Dengue virus (DENV), endemic Dengue fever and its more severe manifestation, Dengue syndrome, cause great socioeconomic loss as well as high mortality in Asia and South America.
  Identification of novel complement evasion mechanisms developed by bacterial pathogens
  Prof A Blom, Prof S Rooijakkers
Application Deadline: 10 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project is focused on discovery of new complement evasion mechanisms developed by bacterial pathogens. One of the studied bacteria will be opportunistic Filifactor alocis, a recently identified periodontal pathogen of major importance but still poorly studied.
  Development of immunoassays for specific classical and lectin pathway activation markers
  Prof Z Prohaszka, Prof R Würzner
Application Deadline: 10 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Infections and various immune-inflammation mediated conditions are characterized by the activation of the complement system. Antibodies (immune complexes) activate the classical pathway whereas repetitive carbohydrate structures give rise to the initiation of the lectin pathway.
  Neuromuscular and predictive modeling of motor adaptations during gait
  Dr Giacomo Severini
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Rehabilitation Engineering and Robotics laboratory at UCD has an opening for an outstanding individual interested in pursuing a PhD on neuromuscular and predictive modeling of motor adaptations during gait.
