  EASTBIO: The chicken or the egg; surmounting neonatal immune dysfunction for successful in ovo vaccination
  Prof L Vervelde, Prof J Hope
Application Deadline: 5 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies / The Roslin Institute. In ovo vaccination is an alternative approach to post-hatch vaccination of chickens.
  Relating glucose levels in newborn babies to later developmental outcomes
  Prof JE Harding
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hypoglycaemia (low blood sugar) is the commonest metabolic condition of the newborn. It affects up to 15% of babies, and the incidence is increasing as risk factors such as maternal diabetes and preterm birth are becoming more common.
  Network modelling of structural and functional brain connectivity in newborns
  Dr R Sanchez-Garcia
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In recent years there has been a remarkable progress in our understanding of the brain as a multi-scale networked system. These advances result from the combination of new experimental and imaging techniques with advanced mathematical and computational methods.
  Sounds in the womb: fetal reactions to what they hear
  Dr N Reissland
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fetuses can hear from around the 23rd week of gestation. They are exposed to a variety of language and non-language sounds in the womb.
  Modification of marketed dosage forms for administration to children
  Dr F O'Brien, Dr M Peak
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Can guidance be provided to allow pharmaceutical companies to develop approvable strategies for alternative methods of administration of medicines to children when the marketed dosage form does not provide the required dose and/or is not acceptable to the child or carers?.
  Investigating the mechanisms contributing to placental dysfunction in pregnancies complicated by diabetes: role of the hexosamine biosynthetic pathway
  Prof M Westwood, Prof J Aplin, Dr J Myers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Maternal diabetes is a major risk factor for fetal overgrowth, which is associated with poor outcomes including stillbirth, neonatal morbidity and increased risk of diabetes in adulthood.
  Childhood outcomes after trials of new treatments before and around the time of birth
  Prof JE Harding
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Randomized trials provide the most reliable evidence of the effects of new treatments. However, for new treatments that are intended to improve the care of mothers and babies before and soon after birth, the potential benefits and harms may not become apparent until much later.
  Visual and brain development in children with early risk factors
  Prof JE Harding, Prof B Thompson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD position in the area of children’s visual development is available within the University of Auckland, New Zealand in collaboration with the University of Waterloo, Canada.
  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.
  Identification and characterisation of bacteriocins from environmental samples active against strains of Clostridium difficile
  Dr C Penfold, Dr K Winzer, Dr Ruth Griffin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Clostridium difficile is a cause of neonatal enteritis in livestock such as pigs, cattle and horses. Affected animals develop respiratory problems, abdominal distention and bloody diarrhoea leading to weight loss and in extreme cases mortality.

  Dr S Ganapathy, Prof J Wilkinson
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

PhD Studentship. On-chip dielectric micro/nano structures for Mid-IR and Raman Spectroscopic signal enhancement for biomarker diagnostics.
