  Mechanistic analysis of neurodevelopmental disorders caused by mutations in the gene RAC1
  Dr T Millard, Dr S Banka
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

RAC1 is a signalling protein that regulates many cellular processes and is essential during embryonic development. We recently discovered a novel genetic disease called RAC1-related neurodevelopmental disorder (RRND) that results from mutations in the RAC1 gene.
  The effect of dementia and aging on the functional and hemodynamic response of the brain
  Dr I Schiessl, Prof S Allan, Dr C Lawrence
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The neuro-vascular unit and the hemodynamic response regulate how the blood supply in our brain meets the metabolic demand of neuronal activity.
  The Effects of Prior Conditioning on Susceptibility to Noise Damage in Young People
  Prof C Plack, Dr G Prendergast
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is increasing concern that young people are damaging their hearing through recreational activities such as attendance at live music events and use of personal listening devices.
  When more yields less: Understanding therapeutic gains according to lesion profile in chronic stroke aphasia.
  Dr A Woollams, Dr L Cloutman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Aphasia is a common consequence of stoke ultimately affecting one in five cases, with the most common residual difficulty being word finding difficulties, or anomia.
  Enhancing Neuroimaging Genetics through Meta-analysis (ENIGMA): Antisocial Behaviour working group
  Dr S De Brito, Dr P Tino
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

ENIGMA is an international collaborative effort that brings together over 1400 researchers across 43 countries to better understand brain structure, function, health and disease, based on meta-/mega-analyses of brain imaging and genetic data (http://enigma.ini.usc.edu).
  Our PhD programmes - A World-Class Research Environment

Funding Type

PhD Type

Each year we offer a wide number of studentships to high calibre students interested in scientific research in a wide range of areas across medicine and veterinary medicine.
  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Developing non-invasive transcranial neuro-stimulation into a precision tool for cognitive enhancement in Schizophrenia using multi-modal neuroimaging
  Research Group: Institute of Neuroscience and Psychology
  Prof G Thut, Dr P Uhlhaas
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisors. Prof Gregor Thut. Prof Peter Uhlhaas. Project summary. Impairments in cognitive processes in Schizophrenia (ScZ) constitute a fundamental aspect of the disorder and encompass both basic perceptual and higher cognitive functions.
  Sensory perception in control of mammalian life-history
  Dr M Garratt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Life history theory is built on the assumption that there are trade-offs between life-history traits, such as between early and late-life reproduction, and between reproduction and lifespan.
  Sex hormone actions in frailty and health during ageing
  Dr M Garratt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

It is well established that testosterone and estrogens can influence ageing, with hormone administration improving physical function, muscle and bone strength in some cohorts of the elderly.
  4-year Doctoral Programme in Ion Channels and Membrane Transport in Health and Disease (OXION)

Funding Type

PhD Type

OXION is an Oxford-based consortium of world-leading scientists who have a general interest in the role of ion channels and membrane transport in health and disease.
  Wellcome Trust 4-year Doctoral Programme in Chemistry in Cells: New Technologies to Probe Complex Biology and Medicine

  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.
  Supporting Behaviour Change - using research in cognitive and social psychology that has identfied strategies that improve the transition from an individual’s intentions and their actual behaviours
  Prof J Ellis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There are many areas of human activity where it is important to bring about a change in behaviour e.g., eating a healthier diet, taking more exercise.
  Evaluating motor and cognitive function through gaze-control technology
  Dr D Souto
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gaze-control technology has proved invaluable in assisting people with neurodegenerative conditions, such as Motor Neuron Disease (MND) or Cerebral Palsy (CP), at times dramatically improving their quality of life by extending their ability to communicate independently.
  Longitudinal study on the relationship of the gut microbiome to disease progression in the UK MND population
  Prof C McDermott, Dr S Boddy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Motor neurone disease (MND) is a devastating neurodegenerative condition characterised by progressive deterioration of motor functions until death normally results from respiratory failure.
