  (EPSRC DTP) Explainable AI for Multimodal Data Integration in Biomedical Applications
  Dr C Yau, Dr D Wong
Application Deadline: 30 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

State-of-the-art black box AI algorithms have revolutionised our ability to construct algorithms for use with complex data sets.
  (EPSRC DTP) Lifecycle exposure and risk assessment for graphene and other carbon based nanomaterials
  Prof M van Tongeren, Dr C Bussy, Dr DB Bard, Dr GE Evans
Application Deadline: 30 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University of Manchester (UoM) is leading the research and knowledge transfer on the production and use of carbon based two dimensional materials (2D materials), through the National Graphene Institute (NGI, part of the Henry Royce Institute, the UK National Institute for Advanced Materials Research and Innovation) and the Graphene Engineering Innovation Centre (GEIC).
  (EPSRC DTP) Methodology for incorporating causal inference in clinical prediction models
  Dr M Sperrin, Dr G P Martin, Dr H Guo
Application Deadline: 30 April 2020

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].
  Range verification in proton beam therapy through prompt gamma-ray imaging
  Dr M Taylor, Prof R Mackay
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project description. The beauty of proton therapy over x-ray therapy is that the majority of protons stop within the patient. The problem lies in the fact that we cannot tell, with a great degree of accuracy, exactly where they stop !.
  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.
  Unified high‐performance hydrodynamic modelling framework for offshore renewables
  Dr Z Ma
Application Deadline: 18 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The UK is looking into the development and use of renewable energies to reduce carbon emission to mitigate its adverse impact on global warming and climate change.
  Developing inhibitors of Rac1b as a potential novel drug against breast cancer stem cells
  Dr R A Bryce, Dr A Ucar, Dr R Whitehead
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK with a lifetime risk of 1-in-8 for women and accounts for 12,000 deaths annually.
  The use of high- and low-melanopic lighting to improve cognitive work in healthcare
  Dr D Phipps, Prof C Dickinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Previous research has supported the notion that lighting conditions play a role in determining how well humans work on healthcare tasks.
  Improving the interaction between visually impaired people and health services
  Prof C Dickinson, Dr D Phipps, Dr P Lewis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

An important, but relatively under-explored, issue in healthcare quality and safety is the interaction between healthcare systems and patients with visual impairment.
