  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Relating skeletal muscle oxygenation dynamics to exercise intolerance mechanisms in heart failure: patient-specific interpretation of near infrared spectroscopy measurements
  Dr A.P. Benson, Dr C Ferguson, Prof S Egginton
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Heart failure is a complex clinical syndrome, the principal symptom of which is profound exercise intolerance (an inability to perform even day-to-day activities), the severity of which relates to disease severity.
  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.
  Analysis and Prevention of Spinal Injuries in Horse Racing
  Dr D Cazzola, Prof K Stokes
Application Deadline: 8 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

SUMMARY OF PROJECT. The Analysis and Prevention of Spinal Injuries in Horse Racing is 3-year research programme in collaboration with the British Horseracing Authority (BHA) and the British Racing School (BRS).
  Developing a clinical tool to quantitatively assess and monitor upper limb and shoulder function in clinical and home settings
  Dr A Shaheen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Upper limb and shoulder disorders are poorly defined, diagnosed and rehabilitated. Current management of these disorders is focussed on the prescription of physiotherapeutic treatments, yet the efficacy of such treatments is not well established and the prognosis of patients with shoulder disorders is very poor.
  The gendered experience of body image in physical activity spaces
  Dr C Kerner, Dr L Hills, Dr A John
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is a growing concern over young people’s body image and the detrimental impact that a negative body image can have on well-being, including physical activity participation.
  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.
  Neural mechanisms underlying pain interference with motor learning in the human spinal cord
  Prof D Falla, Dr A Khatibi
Application Deadline: 30 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project involves simultaneous imaging of the brain and spinal cord using Magnetic Resonance Imaging in Humans. The successful applicant will conduct a project evaluating changes in the connectivity between the brain and the spinal cord following the acquisition of new motor skills during the experience of pain.
