  Functional interactions between GPCRs in the renal microvasculature
  Dr S V Smirnov
Applications accepted all year round
Hypertension and diabetes resulting in diabetic nephropathy (DN) are amongst the leading causes of chronic kidney disease (CKD) and end-stage kidney disease.
  Proteomic Markers of Chronic Renal Scarring
  Dr P Watson
Applications accepted all year round
All types of chronic kidney disease (CKD) progress to end stage renal failure through a common pathway of fibrosis and scarring. Subsequently 2 million patients worldwide require renal replacement therapy (RRT).
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Developing non-invasive imaging strategies to investigate the effect of kidney disease on cardiovascular health and assess the ameliorative effect of a regenerative medicine therapy
  Prof P Murray, Prof J Schneider, Prof H Poptani, Dr B Wilm
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). The strong association between CKD and CVD has been recognised for many years, but the mechanisms by which CKD causes CVD are largely unknown.
  The mechanism and intervention of acute renal injury
  Dr B Yang, Prof N J Brunskill
Applications accepted all year round
The Kidney Lifestyle research team run a broad translational research into Acute kidney injury (AKI). This has high mortality with 13 million incidences globally contributing to 1.7 million deaths every year.
  Developing a computational tool to predict the optimal location for arterio-venous fistula (AVF) creation in end stage renal failure and haemodialysis patients
  Dr A Anssari-Benam, Dr A Bucchi, Dr A Charig
Application Deadline: 17 February 2019
Applications are invited for a fully-funded three year PhD to commence in October 2019. The PhD will be based in the School of Mechanical and Design Engineering and will be supervised by Dr Afshin Anssari-Benam, Dr Andrea Bucchi and Dr.
  Quantification of novel MR imaging biomarkers in Kidney Disease.
  Dr S Francis, Prof M Taal, Dr N Selby
Application Deadline: 25 February 2019
This PhD studentship will run in conjunction with a MRC-funded Partnership research project UKRIN-MAPS (UKRIN MRI Acquisition and Processing Standardisation https://www.nottingham.ac.uk/research/groups/spmic/research/uk-renal-imaging-network/ukrin-maps.aspx).
  PhD Studentship in Renal Transplantation
  Prof M Nicholson
Application Deadline: 11 February 2019
Applications are invited for a three-year PhD studentship based in the University of Cambridge, Department of Surgery and funded by Kidney Research UK.
  Genetic mechanisms of chronic kidney disease
  Prof M Tomaszewski, Prof A Woolf
Applications accepted all year round
Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is one of the most common complex disorders. The prevalence of CKD is on the rise in all populations around the globe and both the clinical and economic pressures of CKD on the healthcare systems increase exponentially.
  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.
  Academic Endocrine Unit: investigating the molecular basis of endocrine and metabolic disorders that principally affect calcium and phosphate homeostasis.
  Prof R Thakker, Dr K Lines, Dr M Stevenson, Dr K Kooblall
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
Other Potential Supervisors. Dr Asha Bayliss. The Academic Endocrine Unit investigates the molecular basis of endocrine and metabolic disorders that principally affect calcium and phosphate homeostasis.
