  Development of biomechanically musculoskeletal models and its application in understanding of ageing process for health
  Dr W Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ageing process in health is one of main research topics currently and in the near future. The key icon for ageing in health is daily movements, e.g.walking.
  Personalised rehabilitation for musculoskeletal and spinal pain
  Dr A Rushton, Prof D Falla, Dr N Heneghan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our PhD students are an active part of our Centre of Precision Rehabilitation for Spinal Pain (CPR Spine). CPR Spine was established at the University of Birmingham in 2016 following a ~£1M investment awarded to Professor Falla and Dr Rushton.
  Multimorbidity in people with musculoskeletal disorders
  Dr G Hendry, Prof M Steultjens, Dr S Smith
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project reference number. SHLS19015. Multimorbidity is a major national health priority. This is due to its high and rising prevalence, the complexity of care need, and demands on patients and practitioners for seeking and delivering care.
  Development of image analysis methods and software to study musculoskeletal diseases using artificial intelligence (AI)
  Dr Claudia Lindner, Prof T Cootes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Musculoskeletal (MSK) diseases affect an increasing number of the population globally. In the UK, on average 3 in 10 people are affected, which increases to 1 in 2 in the age group 65+.
  The effect of low protein diet on the development of the musculoskeletal system
  Dr A Vasilaki, Prof MJ Jackson, Dr I Kanakis, Dr K Whysall
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Age-related sarcopenia is characterised by reduction in the number of myofibres and motor neurons and an additional weakening of the remaining fibres, causing reduction in muscle mass and function.
  Utilising mechanistic mathematical models to understand cellular heterogeneity of healthy human tendons #NDORMS-2020/7
  Dr S Snelling, Dr A Cribbs, Prof S Waters
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tendons efficiently transfer force from muscles to the skeleton and are fundamental to all forms of motion. Tendons possess a distinct hierarchical organisation.
  (MRC DTP) Characterising chronic pain experiences in children and young people with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis and chronic pain
  Dr L Cordingley, Prof W Thomson, Dr R Lee, Dr J McDonagh
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The proposed PhD will investigate pain in children and young people with musculoskeletal conditions, including Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (or JIA).
  Digital manikins as a novel tool to measure self-reported pain in large-scale research studies
  Dr S Van der Veer, Prof W Dixon
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Moderate to severe pain affects 1 in 5 adults. It is among the most prominent symptoms of musculoskeletal disease, and substantially affects the quality of life of people suffering from it.
  An investigation of psychological and clinical factors associated with the development of chronic or persistent pain in children and young people with inflammatory and non-inflammatory musculoskeletal conditions.
  Dr L Cordingley, Prof W Thomson, Dr R Lee, Dr J McDonagh
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA) is an inflammatory arthritis presenting in children and young people. Pain is one of the main features of JIA and it is often described as one of the most burdensome yet invisible symptoms of this long-term condition.
  microRNAs as tools to regulate senescence of musculoskeletal cells during ageing
  Dr K Whysall, Prof P Clegg
Application Deadline: 22 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

As the ageing population continues to increase, it is important to address ageing-related health issues. There is currently no effective treatments for many common musculoskeletal (MSK) disorders, such as sarcopenia or osteoarthritis, which increase in prevalence during ageing.
