  How protective signals from the gut modify neuronal activity and behaviour, using C. elegans as a model system.
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Dr P van Oosten-Hawle, Prof N Cohen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Amyloid protein misfolding leading to loss of neuronal function are fundamental pathogenic mechanisms of numerous age-associated neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer’s (AD).
  Towards ‘Hospices Without Walls’; How Could Human Centred Design and Robotics facilitate ‘Enhanced Independence’ and ‘Alternative Access’ in Future Palliative Care Scenarios?
  Dr F Nickpour, Dr P Paoletti, Dr S Fichera
Application Deadline: 12 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

1. Motivation. By 2040, 160,000 more people in England and Wales will need palliative care, provided the current mortality trends continue.
  Biomechanical modelling of the human hand for improved control of myoelectric prostheses
  Dr E Chadwick, Dr M Giannaccini
Application Deadline: 1 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The loss of a hand or greater part of the upper limb can mean a devastating loss of function for an individual. Myoelectric prostheses are robotic hands intended for replacement of the natural hand in cases of hand amputation or limb difference.
  Pore-scale modelling of drug transport in brain tumour tissue
  Dr W Zhan, Prof D Pokrajac, Dr Y Zhou
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Malignant glioma is characterised as aggressive and invasive in clinic owing to its high mortality rate.
  Soft Robotics Wearable Technologies in Healthcare
  Dr M Giannaccini, Dr S S Aphale
Application Deadline: 1 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for one fully funded doctoral position in soft robotics at the School of Engineering, University of Aberdeen.
  Understanding the biomechanical changes associated with a popular walking programme to optimise care for individuals with arthritis and musculoskeletal conditions.
  Dr K Martin, Dr D Blana
Application Deadline: 29 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is an exciting, interdisciplinary project that brings together social science, data science and engineering, and will give the student invaluable skills for a career in academia or the medical technology sector.
  Fluid flows above and within porous materials
  Prof D Pokrajac, Dr D Van der A
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fluid mechanics problems often involve fluid flows over porous materials. Examples of practical applications include flow through atmospheric and aquatic vegetation, coastal structures, and movement of biological fluids through various tissues.
  Structural insights into ligand binding and channel gating in ATP-gated P2X7 receptor
  Research Group: School of Biomedical Sciences
  Dr L H Jiang, Dr S Muench
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

P2X7 receptor, belonging to the ATP-gated ion channel P2X receptor family, exhibits distinct functional and pharmacological properties that are crucial for its role in innate immunity and inflammatory diseases and cancers (Jiang et al., 2013; Caseley et al., 2014; Roger et al., 2014; Wei et al., 2018).
