  Choosing Who Not To Die With AI: AI-enhanced risk stratification for implanted defibrillators
  Dr M Bishop, Dr P Lamata
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project summary. Clinical Motivation – Re-entrant ventricular arrhythmias are responsible for over 80,000 instances of sudden cardiac death (SCD) annually in the UK.
  Prevention of Gestational Diabetes in Obese Pregnant Women; Targeting Early Pregnancy Intervention to Women at Risk
  Dr S White, Dr A Flynn
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Obesity in pregnancy increases the risk of gestational diabetes (GDM) and associated adverse outcomes. NICE guidelines recommend that all obese women have an oral glucose tolerance test at 24-28 weeks' gestation for detection of GDM.
  Genetic and non-genetic factors involved in risk of cardiovascular diseases
  Dr R Pazoki
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Main Aim. To identify genetic and non-genetic causes of cardiovascular diseases. Cardiovascular diseases including hypertension, myocardial infarction, heart failure, and stroke are the leading causes of mortality worldwide and are expected to keep rising.
  Reducing risk of hip fracture in women using data linkage.
  Prof J E Cade
Application Deadline: 1 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Dietary risk factors for hip fracture using the UK Women’s Cohort Study (UKWCS) is the project focus. The UKWCS has followed ~35,000 women for >20 years and is one of the largest and longest follow up studies of women with detailed dietary information.
  Stress and health: Lifespan stress and cardio-metabolic disease risk pathways through cardiovascular stress reactivity
  Prof AC Whittaker, Dr P Coffee
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

An exciting opportunity for a full-time PhD period of study is available in the Faculty of Health Sciences and Sport, University of Stirling.
  Reducing multi hazard risk for tomorrow’s citizens: citizen science as a means to embed disaster risk reduction into primary schools’ learning in Quito (BARCLAYJU20SCIGCRF)
  Prof J Barclay, Dr T Armijos
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In hazard prone regions of the world, sustainable development demands the integration of multi-hazard disaster risk into urban planning and decision-making.
  Identifying glucose-dependent mechanisms underlying risk factors for Alzheimer’s disease
  Research Group: Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics
  Dr R Williamson, Dr S McLean
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Several risk factors for Alzheimer’s disease including diabetes and midlife obesity are age-dependent and have an obvious metabolic component resulting in impaired glucose metabolism.
  Ankle moment contribution in everyday tasks: effects of ageing
  Research Group: Medical Engineering
  Dr J Buckley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is a fall on stairs every 90 seconds in the UK, and an estimated 250,000 non-fatal accidents which are serious enough to merit a trip to A&E.
  Pedestrian risk of walking alongside roads versus risk of crossing roads
  Dr H Evdorides
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The safety of pedestrians is a critical area for improvement in a number of international programmes. The pedestrian star ratings used by iRAP provide an initial benchmark of safety performance and priority improvements that are cost effective.
  Invent a novel AI-based method for osteoporotic fracture risk assessment by Localized Bone Mineral Density and Radiomics Biomarker analysis, and further improve the accuracy and sensitivity of the system.
  Prof W Lu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The number of osteoporotic fracture cases is ever increasing, and it ranks among the top-five conditions causing disability and prolonged hospital stay.
  Multivariate flood risk analysis under uncertainty and nonstationarity
  Dr Y Fan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Flood risk inference would generally be influenced by a number of factors (e.g. data availability, model selection), which lead to extensive uncertainty in risk inferences.
  Role of telomere attrition in cardiometabolic disease risk
  Dr J Buxton, Dr N Hill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Common conditions such as Type 2 diabetes (T2D) and coronary artery disease (CAD) are complex disorders caused by a myriad of interacting genetic and lifestyle factors.

  Dr L Kelly, Prof RA Nichols
Application Deadline: 14 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A fully funded PhD studentship is available to start in September 2020, jointly supervised by the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew (Dr Laura Kelly) and Queen Mary (Prof.
  Predicting fracture risk in metastatic bone disease: A combined finite element modelling and machine learning approach
  Prof P Pankaj
Application Deadline: 18 December 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The femur (or thighbone) is a common site for the growth of tumours due to different types of cancers that originate elsewhere but spread to the bone.
  The epidemiology and associated burden of potentially serious alcohol-medication interactions in ageing populations in Ireland and the UK
  Dr G Cousins
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

How the body handles alcohol changes as we get older. Ageing lowers the body’s tolerance for alcohol; alcohol circulates in an older person’s body for a longer time and the effects of drinking last longer.
