  The role of fibroblasts in skeletal muscle ageing (SSEHS/NM)
  Dr N Martin, Prof M.P. Lewis
Applications accepted all year round
Loughborough University is a top-ten rated university in England for research intensity (REF2014) and an outstanding 66% of the work of Loughborough’s academic staff who were eligible to be submitted to the REF was judged as ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’, compared to a national average figure of 43%.
  Dynapaenia and sarcopaenia: modelling the drivers of age-related functional decline to generate protective strategies
  Assoc Prof J Bowtell, Prof K Tsaneva-Atanasova
Application Deadline: 13 May 2019
The University of Exeter EPSRC DTP (Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council Doctoral Training Partnership) is offering up to 4 fully funded doctoral studentships for 2019/20 entry.
  Effect of Growth Hormone Administration on Muscle Mass and Cognitive Function
  Prof J Baker
Application Deadline: 1 May 2019
At UWS, we are passionate about our research that focuses on resolving societally critical problems and to address some of those we have established a partnership with the International Space School Educational Trust (ISSET).
  Characterising the skeletal muscle secretome and its role in cardiometabolic disease
  Dr Daniel Kelly, Dr D P Smith
Application Deadline: 29 April 2019
Faculty of Health & Wellbeing, Sheffield Hallam University. Biomolecular Sciences Research Centre. PhD Research Studentship (full-time for 3 years).
  Investigation into the biological effects of exercise training on muscle wasting in patients with lung disease (ref: SF18/APP/SIMOES)
  Dr D Simoes
Applications accepted all year round
Accentuated skeletal muscle loss in patients with non-communicable diseases such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a strong independent predictor of hospitalisation and mortality.
  Heme regulation of signalling at potassium channels in the cardiovascular system
  Dr N Storey, Dr N W Davies
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
Ion channels in the smooth muscle of the cardiovascular system control blood pressure and cardiac contractility through changes in their membrane potential.
  A bottom-up approach to Muscle Mechanics
  Dr A Roy
Applications accepted all year round
Muscles exhibit highly complex behaviour made up of thousands of individual muscle fibres, each with different properties, interacting with each other and the surrounding bio-mechanical structures.
  Influence of a dietary supplement on blood and muscle oxidative stress biomarkers, skeletal muscle respiration and exercise performance in healthy adults
  Dr S Bailey, Dr NC Bishop, Dr N Martin
Application Deadline: 3 May 2020
This project will assess the efficacy of a dietary supplement to alter endogenous antioxidant systems, oxidative stress biomarkers and cellular respiration in human primary myoblasts and skeletal muscle sampled from humans undergoing dietary supplementation.
  The effects of mechanical and electrical stimulation on the maturity of tissue engineered skeletal muscle
  Prof M.P. Lewis, Dr A Capel
Applications accepted all year round
Skeletal muscle undergoes hypertrophy in response to exercise and mechanical loading, however although this response is well studied and established, the molecular sensors and signaling pathways which produce this response are not fully elucidated.
