  Neural Mechanisms of Motor Impulse Control in Parkinson’s Disease
  Dr H MacDonald, Dr C J McAllister
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

3rd supervisor. Dr John-Stuart Brittain. The ability to control our urges and impulses is an essential social skill, but is impaired in a diverse range of neurological disorders, including Parkinson’s disease (PD).
  Respiratory control and sensation in neurological patients
  Dr S H Moosavi
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Oxford Brookes University. Faculty of Health and Life Sciences,. Department of Biomedical and Medical Sciences. 3 Year, full-time PhD studentship.
  The relationship between social cognition, bodily movement and functions of the neurobiological basis for social alignment
  Dr H Gvirts
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a fully-funded Ph.D. to begin in October 2019. The candidate will work with Dr. Hila Z. Gvirts on the relationship between social cognition, bodily movement and functions of the neurobiological basis for social alignment.
  Using the function and structure of the motor unit to predict disease course in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
  Dr J Alix, Prof C McDermott
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Motor neurone disease causes progressive muscle paralysis and remains a fatal condition. One of the challenges faced in clinical practice and research is the heterogeneity of the phenotype.
  Improving the lives of older adults with hearing loss: Developing a self-report measure of effortful listening to guide clinical practice
  Dr A Heinrich, Prof K Munro, Dr R Millman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hearing loss is the most prevalent sensory deficit. In the UK, more than 10 million adults have a hearing loss. Because it is often associated with old age and the size of the older population is growing, it is predicted that there will be more than 14 million people with a hearing loss by 2030.
  Sleeping to boost walking recovery after stroke: SleepWalk, a PhD self-funded studentship (PomeroyVU19SF)
  Prof Valerie Pomeroy, Dr A Lazar
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Stroke survivors are disappointed by the level of walking ability they regain after stroke. They have called for better treatments as a research priority.
  Movement-science inspired development of upper-limb prostheses for young children
  Dr S Watt, Dr K Valyear
Application Deadline: 1 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project rationale and description. Growing up without a hand poses unique and difficult challenges. Prosthesis provision for infants and young children is extremely limited, and the basic-science principles that inform how children learn to use prosthetic devices are largely unknown.
  Developing a questionnaire to assesses patients’ experiences of audiology services
  Prof K Munro, Prof C Armitage
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is growing interest in measuring patients’ experiences of clinical services. This can be used to measure quality, evaluate quality improvement initiatives and compare services.
  Investigating the in vivo targets and mechanism of action of a toxic acetylcholinesterase-derived peptide upregulated in Alzheimer’s disease.
  Dr M Collins
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project description. Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that is characterised by the deposition and accumulation of amyloid beta plaques and phosphorylated tau filaments in the brain, the latter correlating with the onset of symptoms.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Investigating the in vivo targets and mechanism of action of a toxic acetylcholinesterase-derived peptide upregulated in Alzheimer’s disease
  Dr M Collins, Prof S Greenfield
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020
