  Building the human endometrium in vitro: The role of macrophages in receptive and decidual endometrium to optimise reproductive health
  Dr E Mann, Dr Peter Ruane, Prof J Aplin, Dr L Mohiyiddeen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The human endometrium is a highly dynamic tissue that rapidly generates over ~20 days and differentiates to form a uterus lining receptive to embryo implantation, further transforming into decidua to support embryonic development, or breaking down before regenerating a few days later.
  Dietary sugars / sweeteners during pregnancy and their impact on long term metabolic and reproductive health
  Dr C Reynolds
Application Deadline: 10 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is significant evidence that an unhealthy diet greatly increases the risk of complications during pregnancy and predisposes offspring to metabolic dysfunction and obesity.
  The application of the science and evidence base of Health Psychology theories and frameworks within mental health settings
  Dr F Satti
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a PhD research student on a project assessing the impact of Health Psychology within mental health settings.
  Investigating the association between maternal obesity and offspring fertility
  Dr S Bhattacharya, Prof P A Fowler
Application Deadline: 29 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mounting evidence suggests that exposure to maternal obesity in the womb programmes the offspring to poor health outcomes in later life.
  The Development of a Tailored Mindfulness Intervention for Spinal Cord Injury
  Dr K Finlay, Dr M Tilley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a PhD research student to work on the development of a tailored mindfulness intervention for Spinal Cord Injury.
  The impact of male partners on breastfeeding initiation, exclusivity, and continuation: An investigation of new and expectant fathers in the UK
  Dr E Doe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a PhD research student on a project assessing the role male partners play in the initiation, exclusivity and continuation of breastfeeding, with the ultimate aim of intervention design.
  Female reproductive investment and ageing: an evolutionary perspective on osteoporosis (Funded by the QUEX Institute)
  Dr M Fortes
Application Deadline: 15 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Some individuals age faster than others, experience age-related diseases earlier, such as osteoporosis, and ultimately live a shorter life.
  Antimicrobial resistance in marine mammals
  Dr G Troisi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project addresses an urgent Global Challenge – the growing widespread incidence of anti-microbial resistance (AMR). It will be the first to investigate an unreported alarming concern, that wild seals are dying off from AMR bacterial infections and mortality is greater in more polluted waters.
  The Role of CCR5 in Embryo Development
  Dr R Sturmey
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chemokines are small peptides that play key roles in cell migration and signalling. They act primarily by binding specific cell surface receptors to drive intracellular signalling and are key mediators of the immune response.
  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.
  Is there a switch between prostamides and prostaglandins in women with dysmenorrhoea and heavy menstrual bleeding?
  Prof K Marshall, Dr D Fischer, Prof A Nicolaou
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Dysmenorrhoea, painful menstrual cramps, and heavy menstrual bleeding are common debilitating symptoms in women with or without an underlying pelvic pathology.
  Understanding the impact of placental aging on placental function
  Dr A Heazell, Dr M Dilworth, Dr M Desforges
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Prolonged pregnancy (>41 weeks gestation) is associated with an increase in perinatal mortality (the death of a baby before or shortly after birth) from a nadir of 1 per 1,000 births at 39 weeks’ to 3 per 1,000 births at 41 weeks which continues to rise beyond this time.
  Marine Mammal Ecotoxicology
  Dr G Troisi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Exposure to persistent organic pollutants such has been shown to cause reproductive failure in wild seals and other aquatic mammal species and endocrine disruptive toxic mechanisms are believed to be involved.
  MicroRNA and Extracellular Vesicles Mediation of Embryo-Maternal Communication
  Prof A Fazeli, Dr P Heath
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Infertility is a substantial problem affecting couples worldwide. The scars inflicted on couples as a result of not being able to conceive affects their general health, mental well-being and even raising social issues particularly in the old age.
  Ligand-induced selective signalling of peptide GPCRs and their potential role in the regulation of mRNA methylation
  Prof Z Lu, Dr J Meng, Dr R Rong
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) modulate the majority of physiological and pathological processes and constitute the largest family of cell surface receptors and drug targets.
