  Law enforcement and dispute resolution following pregnancy and maternity discrimination at work in the UK: experiences of pregnant workers and new mothers
  Prof G James
Applications accepted all year round
It is estimated that 77% of working mothers in the UK have a negative or possibly discriminatory experience during pregnancy, maternity or when returning to work and that annually as many as 54,000 mothers feel forced to leave their jobs as a result of such behaviour (EHRC/BIS, 2016).
  Impact of intermittent maternal fasting on placental calcium transport and fetal skeletal development
  Dr J Glazier, Dr N Ashton
Applications accepted all year round
Many pregnant women fast during the holy month of Ramadan despite being exempt. As the fetus relies upon the mother for its supply of nutrients, fasting is likely to affect development of the fetus.
  Impact of maternal intermittent fasting on cognitive development
  Dr N Ashton, Prof J Neill
Applications accepted all year round
Many pregnant Muslim women take part in the daily fast during the month of Ramadan, even though they are exempt. The long term effects on the child are not fully known; however an association between exposure to fasting in utero and an increased incidence of mental impairment in children has been shown.
  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Blood flow and solute transport in human placental vascular networks: an in silico approach to characterizing pregnancy pathologies
  Research Group: Centre for Medical Informatics
  Dr M Bernabeu, Dr T Krueger
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Background. The human placenta performs diverse functions later taken on by several different organs. In particular, it mediates the exchange of vital solutes, including respiratory gases and nutrients, between the mother and the developing fetus.
  MicroRNA evolution in placental mammals: Unravelling conservation and divergence in their regulatory mechanisms in early pregnancy in different placental mammals.
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr N Forde, Dr M. O'Connell, Prof K.A. Forbes
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
This project brings together, in a novel manner, the research areas of placental and uterine biology, computational molecular evolutionary biology, as well as microRNA regulation to understand how miRNAs may have contributed to the emergence of placental mammals.
  Impact of maternal intermittent fasting on the development of metabolic disease in the offspring
  Dr N Ashton, Dr J Glazier
Applications accepted all year round
Pregnant Muslim women are exempt from the daily fast during the month of Ramadan; however many choose participate, wanting to share this experience with their families.
  Therapeutic interventions to reverse fetoplacental vascular dysregulation and anatomical changes in fetal growth restriction
  Dr P Brownbill, Dr S Greenwood
Applications accepted all year round
Fetal growth restriction (FGR) is a serious pregnancy complication, which affects 3-8% of pregnancies and is associated with a significant increase in perinatal…
  DPhil Project: Maternal health, offspring growth and risk of fracture: A population-based investigation in 700,000 individuals
  Prof D Prieto-Alhambra, Dr V Strauss, Prof N Harvey, Assoc Prof K Javaid
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
NDORMS 2019/2. Fractures (broken bones) constitute an enormous burden to health both in childhood and adulthood.
  Harnessing long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) to stimulate pancreatic islet regeneration
  Research Group: School of Life Course Sciences
  Dr T Pullen
Applications accepted all year round
Are you interested in a 4 year PhD combining wet-lab experimental research with the chance to gain bioinformatics skills? This exciting project is based in King’s College London with the opportunity to spend time abroad gaining a joint-PhD with Technische Universität Dresden.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Defining the link between glucose, miRNAs and extracellular vesicles in pregnancies complicated by maternal diabetes
  Prof K.A. Forbes, Prof E Scott, Dr N Simpson
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Maternal diabetes currently affects 1 in 20 pregnancies, making it one of the most common obstetric complications, and the incidence is set to rise.
