  Glucocorticoid regulation of NAD+ and energy metabolism in skeletal muscle ageing
  Prof G Lavery, Dr K Tsintzas
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
Glucocorticoid hormones are critical regulators of muscle energy homeostasis, and influence metabolic muscle disease contributing to age-related frailty and cardiovascular disease.
  Extracellular Vesicle mediated cross talk in exercise and ageing
  Dr M Whitham, Dr L Breen, Dr P Harrison
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
Research interests/description of main research theme. Exercise induces the release of a vast array of molecules into circulation and there is a growing appreciation that this represents a complex network of long-range signalling or ‘cross talk’ between organs of the body.
  Investigating barriers to protein intake and protein responsiveness in frail older adults living in nursing homes
  Dr CA Greig, Prof L Holm, Prof J Gladman, Prof P Greenhaff
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
Research interests/description of main research theme. UK data from the 2011 nutrition screening week concluded that 1 in 3 adults admitted to care homes had malnutrition.
  Longitudinal analysis of the effects of lifelong physical activity on muscle and immune ageing
  Dr N Duggal, Prof S Harridge, Dr C Mauro, Prof P Greenhaff
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
Applications are invited for a prestigious three year full time PhD Studentship starting in October 2019.
  Exercise, vitamin D and immune function: to explore the effects of exercise on vitamin D metabolism in humans
  Dr G Wallis, Prof M Hewison
Applications accepted all year round
Exercise is well known to be of benefit for health, including enhancing the immune system. How exercise works to enhance health is not completely known.
  Structure and function of neurohypophysial hormone receptors
  Prof M Wheatley
Applications accepted all year round
The neurohypophysial peptide hormones vasopressin (AVP) and oxytocin (OT) regulate amongst other things diuresis and lactation respectively.
  Integrated mathematical modelling and experimental research into interactions between microorganisms
  Dr J U Kreft
Applications accepted all year round
Our group aims to combine theoretical & experimental approaches to understand major problems in the ecology and evolution of microbes.
  Causes of stress induced cardiac arrhythmia
  Dr J Winter, Dr D Pavlovic
Applications accepted all year round
Abnormal heart rhythms, known as arrhythmia, are a major cause of morbidity and mortality, particularly in individuals with pre-existing cardiovascular disease.
  Impact of diet on cardiovascular responses to acute mental stress
  Dr C Rendeiro, Dr JJCS Veldhuijzen van Zanten
Applications accepted all year round
Cardiovascular diseases remain the second cause of premature death in the UK. In particular, mental stress is a known important contributing factor to mechanisms underlying cardiovascular events, with mounting evidence suggesting that mental stress can negatively affect human endothelial function (Poitras et al., 2013).
  Developmental programming of cardiorespiratory physiology
  Dr A Coney
Applications accepted all year round
Developmental programming has the ability to change physiological function. We recently demonstrated changes in sympathetic nerve innervation and activity that would predispose in later life to hypertension.
