  Targeting inflammation to prevent brain swelling following paediatric head injury
  Dr F Corrigan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited to undertake a PhD/Higher Degree by Research (HDR) to investigate how the inflammatory response to a traumatic brain injury differs in the paediatric population compared to adults.
  A multi-scale computational model of brain blood flow: enhancing MRI for assessing brain health
  Research Group: Brain Imaging
  Prof K Murphy, Prof RG Wise
Application Deadline: 31 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project is well suited to students who would like to combine their knowledge of computational modelling, physics and mathematics to better understand human brain blood flow and how it can go wrong with brain disease.
  Understanding the effects of brain disease on what functional brain imaging signals are telling us about neuronal activity
  Dr C Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Functional brain imaging methods such as functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) have already revolutionized how we can study the processes and functioning of the healthy human brain and are making an increasing impact on our understanding on what goes wrong in disease of the brain.
  Developing new adaptive and machine learning algorithms to successfully decode brain signals across subjects
  Dr M Arvaneh
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A brain decoding model aims at predicting what sensory stimulus is received (e.g. visual stimuli, different images), which mental state is experienced (i.e.
  Assessing the hemodynamic signal sources of fMRI based spontaneous connectivity maps and how neuronal plasticity such as increased spatial working memory can change these networks
  Dr J Berwick
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many psychiatric (e.g. schizophrenia) and neurological diseases are characterised by a disturbance of the connections between different parts of the brain that need to communicate with one another.
  Data-driven processing of brain activity over networks
  Dr J Escudero Rodriguez
Application Deadline: 31 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This exciting inter-disciplinary PhD project will develop computational and mathematical methods to analyse brain activity and networks to help monitor some of the most important neurological diseases today.
  The neurophysiological basis of spontaneous fluctuations in neuroimaging signals
  Dr M Jones, Dr J Berwick
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A technique called blood oxygen level dependent (BOLD) functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) can determine levels of different activity in parts of the living human brain and how malfunctions can occur in disease.
  Simultaneous measures of brain and blood oxygenation: Revealing the function behind ‘functional’ brain mapping signals
  Dr M Jones, Dr J Berwick
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A technique called blood oxygen level dependent (BOLD) functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) can determine levels of different activity in parts of the living human brain and how malfunctions can occur in disease.
  Genetic and molecular mechanisms of brain structural plasticity and neurodegeneration
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr A Hidalgo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project will test the potential of a molecular mechanism that we recently discovered, in modulating brain structural plasticity versus neurodegeneration.
  Determining brain glycosylation in ageing and Alzheimer’s disease
  Research Group: Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics
  Dr R Williamson, Dr C Sutton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Increasing age is associated with lower levels of cognitive performance; concomitant with this is a decrease in brain glucose metabolism.
  When do astrocytes contribute to the control of brain blood flow?
  Dr C Howarth
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In order that the brain can function normally, it is essential that blood flow within the brain is well matched to neuronal metabolic demand.
  Motor Control, Motor Learning and Brain Stimulation - investigating how the brain controls movement and how it allows us to learn new motor skills
  Dr N Jenkinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

My research incorporates a range of techniques including non-invasive brain stimulation, electrophysiological recording, eye-tracking, neuroimaging and behavioural techniques.
  Towards a novel biomarker for pain: advanced analysis of oscillatory brain activity in healthy and chronic pain individuals
  Dr E Valentini, Dr C Antonopoulos
Application Deadline: 16 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Basic Funding details – Full time Home/EU fees and a stipend of £15,009 p.a. Application deadline – Friday 16th August 2019. Start date – October 2019.
  Statistical characterisation of brain tissue microstructure with diffusion magnetic resonance imaging
  Research Group: Brain Imaging
  Dr L Beltrachini, Prof K Murphy
Application Deadline: 31 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Diffusion Magnetic Resonance Imaging (dMRI) is a medical imaging technique that allows to characterise brain structures in the microscale in vivo and non-invasively.
  STRATIFY: Brain network-based stratification of reinforcement-related mental health disorders.
  Prof G Schumann, Dr E Burke Quinlan
Application Deadline: 27 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our main body of work has been concerned with the identification of neural mechanisms of reinforcement-related disorders. Here we have made seminal contributions to the field.
