Volunteering in a changing development cooperation landscape (RDFC24/EE/GES/BAILLIE)

The climate emergency, decolonisation, reduced aid budgets and the aftermath of the Covid-19 pandemic are challenging the ideas and practices of development organisations whose work has been structured around sending volunteering from the global North to the South. Read more

Charting the Journey of Early Career Researchers: Identifying the drivers of Burnout and Engagement (Ref: SF23/HLS/PSY/Montgomery1)

Academia is facing a well-established crisis of mental health. Early career researchers (ECRs), meaning individuals within the first eight years of their career post PhD, are particularly at risk within the academic community. Read more

Objective gait assessment with wearable sensors for clinical application in Parkinson’s disease: From validation to prediction of falls (Ref: RDFC24/HLS/SER/VITORIO)

Gait impairments are common in Parkinson’s disease (PD) and increase the risk of falling. PD-related gait impairments are characterized by reduced speed, shortened and variable steps, reduced arm swing, freezing of gait episodes and difficulties in avoiding obstacles (e.g., curb, uneven terrain).

Developing a forensic DNA legislative framework and policy for Africa (Ref: SF22/HLS/APP/AMANKWAA)

The use of forensic DNA and national DNA databases (NDNAD) has gained popularity in criminal investigations globally [1]. While the technology has been embraced in Europe and other high-income countries, its use and regulation are still at an infant stage in Africa [2]. Read more

Investigating the biology and utility of Giant Viruses (Jumbo-bacteriophages). (ref: SF22/HLS/APP/Smith-Nelson)

The bacteriophage research group at Northumbria University are seeking a highly motivated and talented PhD candidates to join our team and investigate the biology and potential applications of jumbo bacteriophages. Read more

An optimal framework for disease risk prediction and stratification for multi-ethnic populations (ref: SF22/HLS/APP/Chimusa)

The exceptional polygenicity of human traits makes unravelling mechanisms from disease risk prediction models daunting. The development of polygenic risk scores (PRS) methods, their evaluation and clinical utility have been explored almost in European ancestry Genome-Wide Association Studies (GWAS) data sets.

Improving the separation and purification of high technology lanthanides (ref: SF22/HLS/APP/LEWIS)

Lanthanides (or ‘rare earths’) are widely used as key components in high technology devices, including smart phones, digital cameras, computer hard disks, fluorescent and light-emitting-diode (LED) lights, flat screen televisions, computer monitors, high performance magnets and electronic displays.
