  Targeting inflammation to prevent brain swelling following paediatric head injury
  Dr F Corrigan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited to undertake a PhD/Higher Degree by Research (HDR) to investigate how the inflammatory response to a traumatic brain injury differs in the paediatric population compared to adults.
  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.
  A multi-scale computational model of brain blood flow: enhancing MRI for assessing brain health
  Research Group: Brain Imaging
  Prof K Murphy, Prof RG Wise
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project is well suited to students who would like to combine their knowledge of computational modelling, physics and mathematics to better understand human brain blood flow and how it can go wrong with brain disease.
  Understanding the effects of brain disease on what functional brain imaging signals are telling us about neuronal activity
  Dr C Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Functional brain imaging methods such as functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) have already revolutionized how we can study the processes and functioning of the healthy human brain and are making an increasing impact on our understanding on what goes wrong in disease of the brain.
  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.
  Towards a mechanistic understanding of why age increases the behaviorally impairing effects ofinflammation on the brain
  Prof N Harrison
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This studentship offers an outstanding opportunity for a talented PhD student to join an internationally leading group investigating how inflammation in the body acts on the brain to impair human mood, motivation and cognition.
  Inhibition and Excitation in the brain
  Dr D Field
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

An appropriate balance between excitatory and inhibitory neural processes in the brain underlies healthy psychological function. Two examples of conditions in which there is an imbalance are autism and ADHD.
  Neurological reserve as a pivotal mechanism for psychiatric symptoms in Alzheimer’s disease
  Prof A Venneri, Dr M De Marco
Application Deadline: 3 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Patients with Alzheimer’s disease (AD) may experience and show a whole range of clinical symptoms. Of these, psychiatric symptoms such as apathy, depression and anxiety play a major role in that they are highly debilitating for patients and carers.
  Psychological intervention, cognitive training, functional rehabilitation and well-being in clinical populations with brain degeneration
  Dr A Ho
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The concept of human well-being is a fundamental aspect of our existence and is often particularly vulnerable upon diagnosis and/or progression of long-term neurological conditions for which there is no cure, such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and Huntington’s disease.
  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.
