  Multitasking abilities – Are computerised laboratory tasks predictive of real-world tasks?
  Dr A Szameitat, Dr A Parton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Multitasking, i.e. the concurrent performance of two or more tasks, has been investigated in many different domains. In Cognitive Psychology, experimental paradigms such as the task switching paradigm or the dual-task paradigm of the Psychological Refractory Period (PRP) are the most widely used multitasking paradigms.
  Detecting high-risk smokers in Primary Care Electronic Health Records: an automatic classification, data extraction and predictive modelling approach.
  Prof F Sullivan, Prof T Kelsey
Application Deadline: 4 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Opportunity in Populations and Behavioural Science at the School of Medicine, University of St Andrews.
  Development and application of a multi-component 3-D in vitro model for predictive pharmacokinetics of environmental pharmaceuticals in fish
  Prof C Hogstrand
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many medicinal drugs end up in the aquatic environment through patient use and the pharmaceutical industry is required to assess their risk to non-target organisms.
  Use of highly multi-modal PET and MRI data as a predictive biomarker of the site of recurrence in neuro-oncology
  Dr R Hinz, Dr David Coope, Prof A Jackson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Primary brain tumour including glioblastoma (GBM), the most aggressive and most common form in adults, continue to have a socioeconomic impact that is disproportionate to the tumour frequency due to our inability to obtain a cure in the vast majority of adult sufferers.
  The use of artificial intelligence to develop personalised predictive insight of disease trajectory based on symptom clusters in complex disease.
  Dr M Calvert, Prof A Denniston
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Patient-reported outcome (PRO), such as symptoms and quality of life (QOL), are increasingly collected in research and routine clinical practice.
  Characterization of new biomarkers for precision management of metabolic diseases
  Prof A Xu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bariatric surgery is one of the most efficient ways in reducing the incidence of type 2 diabetes (T2D) and related mortality in obese individuals compared with the conventional intensive medical treatment.
  The diagnosis and assessment of respiratory disease with a novel technology
  Dr R Bruce
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The diagnosis, assessment and management of many respiratory diseases (e.g. chronic obstructive pulmonary disease; COPD), is largely dependent on traditional lung function tests such as spirometry.
  Defining the microbiome environment in patients with biliary tract cancer and its implications for therapy
  Prof J W Valle, Dr M McNamara
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biliary tract cancers (BTCs) encompass cancers of the extrahepatic/intrahepatic bile ducts, gallbladder and ampullary carcinoma. The only potentially curative option is surgical resection; median overall survival (OS) in the advanced setting.
  Immune phenotyping of refractory rheumatoid arthritis disease
  Prof Maya Buch, Dr S Viatte
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Treatment of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) has been transformed with the introduction of targeted therapies twenty years ago (comprising biologic disease modifying anti-rheumatic drugs, bDMARDS; and the more recent small molecule JAK inhibitors).

  Dr M Lagator, Dr C Knight
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Imagine an architect, tasked with converting an old stadium into a building with a different function, without demolishing it.
