  Suicide prevention in probation: a mixed methods study
  Dr Verity Wainwright, Prof J Shaw, Dr Sandra Flynn
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project description. Those involved in the criminal justice system are at increased risk of self-inflicted death. Previous research has largely focused on self-inflicted deaths in prison where both men and women are more likely to die by suicide than their counterparts in the community.
  Bayesian statistical approaches to identification of shared genetic signals
  Dr H Guo, Prof C Berzuini
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project description. A number of genes have been found associated with health conditions of interest (e.g. autoimmune disease) from multiple studies.
  Exploring the epidemiology and care of complex wounds in lower and middle income countries
  Prof N Cullum, Prof J Dumville
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Complex wounds cannot be closed, for example by sutures, staples or glue, but are left open to heal. These open wounds, which include leg, pressure and foot ulcers, can be painful, at risk of infection and limit people’s health-related quality of life.
  Investigating the incidence of falls and relationship to motor ability in autistic adults
  Dr E Gowen, Dr E Stanmore, Dr E Poliakoff
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Autism is a life-long developmental condition that affects how a person communicates and interacts with people. In addition to these social symptoms, >70% of autistic individuals show signs of altered motor control such as less accurate eye-hand coordination, unstable balance and abnormal gait patterns.
  Exploring the epidemiology and care of complex wounds in lower and middle income countries
  Prof J Dumville, Prof N Cullum
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Complex wounds cannot be closed, for example by sutures, staples or glue, but are left open to heal. These open wounds, which include leg, pressure and foot ulcers, can be painful, at risk of infection and limit people’s health-related quality of life.
  Improved classification of myositis disease subtypes using statistical genetics approaches for stratified medicine
  Dr J Lamb, Dr AM Morris, Dr H Chinoy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Keywords. idiopathic inflammatory myopathy, myositis, genetics, disease classification, stratified medicine. Idiopathic inflammatory myopathies (IIM) are heterogeneous autoimmune diseases characterized by inflammation of skeletal muscle (myositis).
  Conversation analysis of health communication
  Dr S Speer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Good communication can enhance health outcomes. In order to optimise health communication in different settings it is important to understand what interactional techniques are used, and which techniques work well and less well.
  Up to 10 fully funded, four-year PhD studentships are available in the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Prosthetics and Orthotics

Funding Type

PhD Type

Up to 10 fully funded, four-year PhD studentships are available in the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Prosthetics and Orthotics, commencing in October 2019.
  Non-invasive imaging of the pathophysiology of early systemic sclerosis; fibrosis and oxygenation
  Dr A Murray, Prof G Parker, Prof A Herrick, Dr M Dickinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Systemic sclerosis (SSc) is a microvascular autoimmune disease that causes lack of blood flow and scarring and thickening of skin and tissues within internal organs.
  An investigation of psychological and clinical factors associated with the development of chronic or persistent pain in children and young people with inflammatory and non-inflammatory musculoskeletal conditions.
  Dr L Cordingley, Prof W Thomson, Dr R Lee, Dr J McDonagh
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA) is an inflammatory arthritis presenting in children and young people. Pain is one of the main features of JIA and it is often described as one of the most burdensome yet invisible symptoms of this long-term condition.
  Advancing Methodology for Clinical Prediction
  Dr M Sperrin, Dr G P Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Clinical prediction models (CPMs) take what we know about a person and predict the probability of subsequent outcomes using a regression model or algorithm [1].
  Accurate energy evaluation of receptor-ligand interaction
  Prof P Popelier, Dr S De Visser
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Drug design routinely uses existing computational methods to evaluate the interaction energy between receptor (protein) and ligand (drug) in molecular docking.
  Development of image analysis methods and software to study musculoskeletal diseases using artificial intelligence (AI)
  Dr Claudia Lindner, Prof T Cootes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Musculoskeletal (MSK) diseases affect an increasing number of the population globally. In the UK, on average 3 in 10 people are affected, which increases to 1 in 2 in the age group 65+.
  Understanding disease mechanisms in autoimmune inflammatory muscle disease
  Dr J Lamb, Dr H Chinoy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The idiopathic inflammatory myopathies are a spectrum of rare autoimmune disorders characterized by inflammation of muscle tissue (myositis), which leads to muscle weakness and fatigue, and heterogeneous systemic organ involvement.
  Developing prognostic models in early psychosis through digital interventions
  Dr S Bucci, Dr G P Martin, Dr M Sperrin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type
