  KESS2 East PhD in Medicine: Use of technological platforms to enhance phenotypic understanding in primary dystonia
  Dr K Peall, Dr L McIlreavy
Application Deadline: 1 May 2019
This KESS2 East PhD project is aimed at recruiting a large cohort of individuals diagnosed with adult-onset primary focal dystonia, making use of state-of-the-art technology both in laboratory and real-life settings to better understand the motor and non-motor phenotypes.
  Investigating the interplay of maternal obesity and Neuro-immune interactions in neuropsychiatric disorders: a developmental approach
  Dr E Mire, Prof J Hall
Application Deadline: 15 March 2019
Growing evidence suggest that gene-environment interactions are critical in the pathogenesis of neuropsychiatric disorders. Maternal metabolic conditions, including obesity and diabetes, which are associated with chronic sub-threshold inflammation, are established risks factors for these disorders in the offspring.
  Identification and modelling of causal genetic and environmental factors for HD severity and progression
  Prof P Holmans, Dr P Pallmann, Prof A Rosser, Prof M Busse
Application Deadline: 1 April 2019
The student will model the interplay between genetic and environmental risk factors and clinical outcomes in a longitudinal cohort of 300 manifest and pre-manifest HD gene carriers.
  Episodic memory in the schizophrenia spectrum
  Dr L Evans
Application Deadline: 17 March 2019
This PhD project will examine the cognitive processes and brain systems underlying episodic memory decisions in those in the schizophrenia spectrum.
  Towards a clinical MEG system: theoretical and practical insights into the use of optically pumped magnetometers
  Research Group: Brain Imaging
  Dr L Beltrachini, Prof K Singh
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
Magnetoencephalography (MEG) is a non-invasive medical imaging technique that allows characterisation of human brain electrophysiology by measuring magnetic fields generated by neural currents.
  Boosting Creativity through Sleep Engineering
  Research Group: Cognitive Neuroscience
  Prof P Lewis
Application Deadline: 17 March 2019
We spend 1/3 rd of our life asleep, and the brain is very busy during this time. The neural oscillations of sleep have known restorative functions, and are also critical for memory consolidation and emotional processing.
  Computational modelling of memory processing in sleep
  Research Group: Cognitive Neuroscience
  Prof P Lewis
Application Deadline: 17 March 2019
How does the brain store memories? Various computational models exist to explain this, but none of these incorporate sleep.
  Remembering novel visual information
  Research Group: Cognitive Psychology
  Dr C Morey
Application Deadline: 17 March 2019
Working memory (WM) theories describe processes engaged when thinking, including temporarily holding information in mind and using that information.
  PhD in Psychological Medicine & Clinical Neuroscience - Testing the role of relative age within school year on mental health in children with neurodevelopmental vulnerability
  Prof S Collishaw, Dr K Langley
Application Deadline: 27 February 2019
In the UK one in eight children and young people experiences a mental health disorder at any given time. Preventing and ameliorating the impact of mental health problems is a priority, however effective prevention requires the identification of potentially modifiable causal risk factors.
  PhD In Psychological Medicine & Clinical Neurosciences - The impact of FAN1 on gene editing approaches for Huntington’s disease
  Prof V Dion, Prof A L Jones, Dr T Massey
Application Deadline: 27 February 2019
Huntington’s disease (HD) is an autosomal dominant disease that leads to neurodegeneration and death inexorably within 15 to 20 years.
