  Protein Misfolding and the Molecular Basis of Alzheimer’s Disease
  Dr J Viles
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. World-wide one in three people over the age of 65 will die with Alzheimer’s Disease (AD). The disease is characterised by deposits of amyloid plaques and fibrils of amyloid-beta peptide (Ab) are their main constituent.
  Role of the centrosome and cilia in development
  Dr C Wilkinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

My research interest lies in the roles of centrioles and associated proteins, as parts of the centrosome and cilium, in early vertebrate development, using zebrafish embryos as a model system.
  Development of a new muscle mechanics model– viscoelasticity and residual force enhancement in human leg muscles during eccentric contraction
  Dr S-H Yeo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The goal of this project is to build a new model of muscle contraction called the “winding filament” model.
  Identification of a biomarker of sensory dysfunction for patients who have developed neuropathic pain following cancer chemotherapy using functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) and machine learning.
  Prof D Steele, Prof L Colvin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Acute pain is intrinsically unpleasant and aversive but is useful as it has survival benefit. However, many people suffer from chronic treatment-resistant pain that lasts months or years, lacks survival benefit, seriously impairs quality of life and causes unnecessary suffering.
  Investigations into the neuroprotective actions of leptin and leptin-based mimetics in models of tauopathy.
  Dr J Harvey
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In neurodegenerative disorders like Alzheimer’s disease (AD), synaptic communication within brain networks are impaired leading to significant memory deficits and dementia.
  Fluency and Context in Recognition Memory
  Dr J Taylor, Dr D Talmi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project relates to a sort of ‘memory illusion’. On a recognition memory test, increasing the perceptual fluency of a test cue increases the likelihood that the word will be endorsed as ‘familiar’, even if it hasn’t been seen in the study phase (and therefore should have been called ‘new’).
  Investigating the attentional consequences of the uncanny valley
  Dr E Poliakoff, Dr E Gowen, Dr C Capek
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The “uncanny valley” was hypothesed by roboticist Mori in 1970, whereby people would like robots of increasingly human-likeness until they were close to, but not fully human.
  Anxiety and motivation in Autism – are social behavioural features driven by social anxiety rather than by a reduced reward response to social stimuli?
  Prof B Chakrabarti
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Social behavioural difficulties are commonly reported by individuals with Autism Spectrum Conditions (ASC). One of the leading theories suggests that these difficulties are brought about by a reduced reward response to social stimuli, i.e.
