  Developing a sensory processing measure for people with dementia
  Prof C Surr, Dr SJ Smith
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sensory processing changes, such as heightened sensitivity to touch, are common in dementia and they, alongside over or under-stimulation, are thought to contribute to increased distress and care interactions that staff may find difficult to support effectively.
  Role of metal resistance in foodborne bacterial disease
  Dr J Morrissey, Prof J M Ketley
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Foodborne infectious diseases are frequent and growing public health problems worldwide (World Health Organisation).
  Music and language processing in autism and amusia
  Dr F Liu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Music and language are fundamental traits of human existence. They both rely on complex sound sequences to convey meaning. It has been hotly debated whether the two are processed through distinct cognitive modules or using shared mechanisms.
  Reward Processing and Depression using Neuroimaging
  Prof C McCabe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In our research group we are interested in how the brains response to reward and aversion might be a biomarker for risk to depression in adults and adolescents.
  Machine Learning Methods for Behaviour Analysis in Cardiovascular Disease
  Prof T Chico, Prof L Mihaylova
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cardiovascular diseases affect patient’s day-to-day activities by causing symptoms such as breathlessness on exertion but there is no effective way to measure this.
  Dynamic prediction modelling in Parkinson’s disease
  Dr D McLernon, Dr A Macleod
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

1. Background to the project. Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a progressive, disabling, neurodegenerative disorder which is common in the elderly.
  Expanding the Evidence Base Through Inter-Sectoral Partnerships for Action on Health Equity
  Dr L D'Ambruoso, Prof I Theodossiou, Prof P Abbott
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Described as the single most critical development failure of the past 30 years, the majority of births, deaths and causes of death in Africa and Asia are never recorded.
  Understanding the health behaviour behind GP help-seeking with potential cancer symptoms.
  Prof P Murchie, Dr D Powell, Dr R Vieira
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

1. Background to the project.
  Use of inertial sensors for fall prediction in older people
  Dr A Shaheen, Dr A Cocks
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Falls in older people are a common cause of morbidity, mortality and loss of function. The physiological changes to the motor and sensory functions caused by ageing combined with the presence of other age-related diseases put this population at a high risk of falling.
  The impact of hearing difficulty on conversational interaction
  Dr D Knox, Dr R Gibson, Dr G Cassidy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

SEBE-19-001. This project focuses on how hearing difficulty impacts individuals’ ability to interact successfully. Conversational interaction is fundamental to the development of social attachments.
  Interpretation of Features in Biological Images
  Dr A Managh
Application Deadline: 30 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are seeking applicants with an interest in data analysis and programming to develop methods to extract information from high resolution images of metals in tissue.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Are microbes the hidden influencers? Unravelling the genomic network of host-microbe interactions
  Dr D Rico, Prof S Hambleton, Dr C Lamb, Prof R Hirt
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background and hypotheses. Each of us has a genome. The genome is the same in every cell of our organism but its three-dimensional (3D) structure is different in every cell type.
  Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning to Improve the Effectiveness and Efficiency of Health Care
  Dr B Brown, Prof D Dowding
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Artificial intelligence (AI) is widespread throughout commercial industries (think Google, Uber, Alexa, and Siri), but rarely used in health care settings.
  Scalable big data analytics for healthcare translation
  Dr J Ho
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A range of specific PhD projects can be developed within the broad theme of scalable big data analytics for healthcare translation, including.
  Using multimodal brain imaging and brain stimulation techniques to investigate the role played by physiological inhibition in the representation of somatomotor maps in Tourette syndrome
  Prof S Jackson
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tourette syndrome (TS) is a common neurological disorder of childhood onset that is characterised by the occurrence of vocal and motor tics, and has been associated with alterations in the balance of excitatory and inhibitory signalling within cortical-striatal-thalamic-cortical brain circuits that are implicated in movement selection and habit learning.
