  The New Iron Age: Investigating the impact of Brain Iron on Neurodegeneration
  Dr G Waiter, Dr C McNeil, Dr A Sneddon
Application Deadline: 28 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will investigate the role of iron in brain ageing and provide insight into its influence on neurodegeneration and cognitive decline.
  Statistical characterisation of brain tissue microstructure with diffusion magnetic resonance imaging
  Research Group: Brain Imaging
  Dr L Beltrachini, Prof K Murphy
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Diffusion Magnetic Resonance Imaging (dMRI) is a medical imaging technique that allows to characterise brain structures in the microscale in vivo and non-invasively.
  PhD: Fluorescence imaging, diagnosis, and photodynamic therapy for brain tumours (Laser Research and Therapy Fund) - University of St Andrews
  Prof D Reid, Dr K Wood
Application Deadline: 30 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is an aggressive malignant brain tumour with a median survival for adults of only 11 – 15 months. Published studies have shown that prognosis can be improved if near-complete removal of the tumour can be achieved in surgery [do we need to put references?].
  PhD: Fluorescence imaging, diagnosis, and photodynamic therapy for brain tumours (University of St Andrews)
  Prof A Kemp, Prof M Dunn, Prof D Reid
Applications accepted all year round

  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: 30 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Magnetoencephalography (MEG) is a non-invasive medical imaging technique that allows characterisation of human brain electrophysiology by measuring magnetic fields generated by neural currents.
  Modelling memristive artificial neurons
  Prof S Saveliev, Dr P Borisov
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Does the brain operate as a computer? In short the answer is no, but why? We use logic when thinking and coming to a decision by linking events in a causal relationship.
  Wellcome Trust 4 year PhD Programme in Neural Dynamics

Funding Type

PhD Type

Wellcome Trust 4 year PhD Programme in Neural Dynamics University of Bristol. Deadline for applications. Wednesday 19 June 2019. Why investigate neural dynamics?.
  A multi-modal approach to deep phenotyping frailty
  Prof P Greenhaff, Prof J Gladman, Dr S Francis
Application Deadline: 17 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Frailty is a significant challenge to ageing individuals, of central importance to well-being and a widely accepted public health problem.
  Exploring large-scale nuclear spin polarisation physics of xenon-129 for hyperpolarised gas MRI applications
  Dr G Norquay, Prof JM Wild
Application Deadline: 3 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The isotope xenon-129 (129Xe) can be nuclear spin polarised (magnetised) to very high levels by a process known as spin-exchange optical pumping.
  Markers of Expertise in Sport and Physical Activity: Triangulated Approaches
  Dr D Broadbent, Dr D Bishop, Dr A Cocks, Dr A Nowicky
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to adopt a mixed methods approach to determine the various factors – innate, learnt, and environmental – that ultimately contribute to skill acquisition and/or expertise within a specified domain.
