The Critical Care Research Group (CCRG), based at the The Prince Charles Hospital (TPCH) in Brisbane, Australia, is seeking highly motivated, skilled and committed PhD candidates to join our multidisciplinary and international research team to commence a PhD project.
  Neuromuscular and predictive modeling of motor adaptations during gait
  Dr Giacomo Severini
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding 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.
  Optogenetic voltage reporting to probe cerebellar to motor cortex connections
  Dr R Empson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The cerebellum and the motor cortex are known to communicate during motor behaviour for the refinement of movement.
  Targeting Astrocyte-Mediated Mechanisms Leading to Neuronal Toxicity in Motor Neurone Disease
  Dr Y Buskila
Application Deadline: 30 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project, we propose to investigate the mechanisms by which astrocytes impact motor neuron hyperexcitability in Motor Neurone Disease (MND).
  Investigating the incidence of falls and relationship to motor ability in autistic adults
  Dr E Gowen, Dr E Stanmore, Dr E Poliakoff
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. In addition to these social symptoms, >70% of autistic individuals show signs of altered motor control such as less accurate eye-hand coordination, unstable balance and abnormal gait patterns.
  Investigating the role of adenosine deaminase in motor neuron disease
  Dr S P Allen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In a recent study published in Brain (https://doi.org/10.1093/brain/awy353) and highlighted in a number of media articles (www.sheffield.ac.uk/news/nr/disrupted-pathway-motor-neurone-disease-1.830534) we have identified a novel disruption in an energy generating pathway in astrocytes (neuronal support cells) derived from motor neurone disease (MND) patients.
  Embodied learning: How motor difficulties constrain learning during parent-child interaction in infants/toddlers with Down syndrome and Williams syndrome
  Research Group: Brain and Cognition Research Group
  Dr D D'Souza, Dr H D'Souza, Dr J Lambie
Applications accepted all year round

PhD Type

Proposed supervisory team. Dr Dean D’Souza ([email protected])- (Anglia Ruskin University), Dr Hana D’Souza - (Cambridge University), Dr John Lambie ([email protected])- (Anglia Ruskin University).
  SOD1 The Key protein for finding a cure for familial Motor Neurone Disease
  Dr S Antonyuk, Prof S Hasnain
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Motor neurone disease is a progressive, fatal neurological disorder with no known cure. It is characterised by selective loss of motor neurons in the spinal cord and cortex.
  TDP-43 The Key protein for finding a cure for Motor Neurone Disease
  Dr S Antonyuk, Prof S Hasnain
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Motor neurone disease is a progressive, fatal neurological disorder with no known cure. It is characterised by selective loss of motor neurons in the spinal cord and cortex.
  Neural mechanisms underlying pain interference with motor learning in the human spinal cord
  Prof D Falla, Dr A Khatibi
Application Deadline: 30 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project involves simultaneous imaging of the brain and spinal cord using Magnetic Resonance Imaging in Humans. The successful applicant will conduct a project evaluating changes in the connectivity between the brain and the spinal cord following the acquisition of new motor skills during the experience of pain.
