  Imaging the rhythms of stress hormone secretion
  Dr K Iremonger
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Corticosteroid stress hormones are released throughout the day in hourly pulses with a peak in secretion prior to the onset of the active period (early morning for humans, early evening for rodents).
  Biological role of Stress Hormones
  Dr A B Bicknell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

OVERVIEW. Our lab focuses on the biological roles of peptide hormones derived from pro-opiomelanocortin (POMC), a protein produced in the anterior pituitary gland.
  DEM simulations of triaxial behaviour of structural concrete
  Dr G Gong, Dr J Xia, Dr C Loo, Dr S A Galindo Torres
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

结构混凝土三轴行为的离散元模拟. The response of concrete at a material level is characterised by a distinctly non-linear stress-strain behav¬iour.
  Causes of stress induced cardiac arrhythmia
  Dr J Winter, Dr D Pavlovic
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Abnormal heart rhythms, known as arrhythmia, are a major cause of morbidity and mortality, particularly in individuals with pre-existing cardiovascular disease.
  (MRC CASE) Methods for non-invasive sampling and detection of exhaled breath aldehydes as markers of oxidative stress.
  Dr S Fowler, Prof P Barran
Application Deadline: 14 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Aldehydes are end-products of lipid peroxidation, and hence represent potential markers of oxidative stress, produced via generation of alkoxyl radicals.
  Modelling of primary water stress corrosion cracking (PWSCC) of nickel based alloys (NBAs) in nuclear (PWR) primary coolant
  Prof M C Smith, Dr A Jivkov
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nickel based alloy (NBA) materials and their associated weld metals are of interest to new build and advanced nuclear reactors due to their superior structural performance when compared with traditional steel materials.
  Shear stress sensing in arteries
  Dr M Fronius
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Fronius lab is investigating how ion channels are sensing shear stress and how this affects the function of blood vessels and blood pressure regulation.
  PhD in Food Web Networks and Environmental Change: Exploring how natural and anthropogenic stress influence the structure and dynamics of communities.
  Dr A Beckerman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The interactions among species define a food web network. In these networks, species have dynamics (e.g. numbers and biomass), the community has structure (e.g.
  Modelling earthquake cascades using physics
  Dr M Segou, Prof J McCloskey
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD is funded through the ‘RISE’ project as part of the Horizon 2020 program. Towards operational forecasting of earthquakes and early warning capacity for more resilient societies.
  Induction of yeast prions by oxidative stress
  Prof C M Grant, Prof M Ashe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Prions are novel protein-only infectious agents associated with a group of transmissible neurodegenerative diseases typified by human Creutzfeldt Jakob Disease (CJD).
