  The performance and health benefits of sleep in late adolescent athletes (RDF19/HLS/SER/THOMAS)
  Dr K Thomas
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
An optimal sleep schedule provides the foundation for good health. Adequate sleep has been associated with positive outcomes for cardiovascular, metabolic and mental health, and cognitive, academic and athletic performance.
  Shaping memories during sleep - how learning-related changes in the sleeping brain impact long-term memory
  Dr B Staresina, Dr S Hanslmayr
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Why do we sleep? Considering that we spend roughly a third of our lives asleep, seemingly unproductive and vulnerable, there must be an immense evolutionary benefit to sleep.
  Machine learning and sleep: Detecting neural replay in sleep with EEG classifiers
  Research Group: Cognitive Neuroscience
  Prof P Lewis
Application Deadline: 17 March 2019
Memories are spontaneously replayed in sleep, and this replay is critical for their consolidation (strengthening and integration with pre-existing knowledge).
  Computational modelling of memory processing in sleep
  Research Group: Cognitive Neuroscience
  Prof P Lewis
Application Deadline: 17 March 2019
How does the brain store memories? Various computational models exist to explain this, but none of these incorporate sleep.
  Sleep disordered breathing and its relationship to other diseases
  Dr R Huckstepp, Prof N E Dale
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
Breathing is a vital function that is essential for life, and any disorders effecting respiration have severe consequences. Sleep apnoea (brief periods where breathing ceases during sleep), is a relatively common disorder of breathing, which occurs in ~25% of men and ~10% of women.
  Characterising changes and covariation in physical activity, sedentary behaviour and sleep during childhood and adolescence (AtkinAU18SF)
  Dr A Atkin
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
Public health interventions often seek to change the amount of time that people spend in particular behaviours, such as increasing physical activity or reducing sedentary behaviour, with the aim of enhancing health.
  Electrophysiological mechanisms underlying curiosity-based memory
  Research Group: Cognitive Neuroscience
  Dr M Gruber
Application Deadline: 8 February 2019
The PhD project will investigate the electrophysiological mechanisms underlying curiosity-based memory in healthy participants. You will be part of the Motivation and Memory Lab (group leader.
  Deep learning for well-being assessment using wearable data - PhD
  Dr R Paulin
Application Deadline: 30 April 2019
Summary. Photoplethysmography (PPG) is widely used in wearables to record heart activity.
  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Genetic Epidemiology of Rheumatoid Arthritis in UK Biobank
  Research Group: Institute of Health and Wellbeing
  Dr D Lyall, Dr S Siebert
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Supervisors. Dr Donald M Lyall. Dr Stefan Siebert. Dr Daniel F Mackay. PhD project summary. Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and high circulating rheumatoid factor (RF) are associated with important comorbidities, like cardiometabolic conditions, cognitive impairment, and poorer sleep.
  5x Fully funded PhD studentship in Psychology
