Our Department of Psychology is among the world's top psychology departments*, excelling in both teaching and research. We offer two research degree programmes.
  The impact of transcultural migration on body image and disordered eating
  Research Group: Applied, Social and Health Psychology Research Group
  Prof V Swami
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. Applied, Social and Health Psychology Research Group - http://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-technology/research/our-research-institutes-and-groups/applied-social-and-health-psychology.
  Eukaryotic gene expression: understanding the role of UPF1 in global mRNA processing and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
  Dr S Brogna
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project’s specific objective is to study the molecular role(s) that the RNA helicase UPF1 plays in RNA processing. UPF1 is a key player in nonsense-mediated mRNA decay (NMD), it is universally conserved in eukaryotes and is essential to the development of many organisms [1].

Good degree in the Physical or Life Sciences? Interested in biological or medical research? We offer fully-funded PhD places across the Oxford Doctoral Training Centre programmes.
  Combining melatonin and omega-3 fatty acids to manage chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy and spinal injury-induced neuropathic pain.
  Prof H Galley, Dr W Huang
Application Deadline: 28 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) is a common and debilitating complication during cancer treatment, which can lead to chemotherapy drug dose reduction or treatment cessation.
  Using VR to investigate the visual features that determine the effectiveness of disruptive camouflage
  Dr R Sharman, Dr G Lovell
Application Deadline: 2 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

While research has begun to unpack how camouflage works, there are many gaps in our understanding. For example, in disruptive camouflage the false edges within the pattern do not attempt to exactly match the background, yet they aid concealment.
  Sleep Engineering to manipulate memory:  detecting replay with classifiers, modelling the system, and manipulating with TMR
  Research Group: Cognitive Neuroscience
  Prof P Lewis
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

We spend 1/3 rd of our life asleep, and the brain is very busy during this time. Memories are spontaneously reinstated during sleep, and this reinstatement has been linked to consolidation, or strengthening of the memories involved.
  5G-IoT in the fight against Auto-immune diseases
  Prof C Politis, Dr K Danas
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The empowerment of patients and their formal and informal carers has become a prime target of healthcare strategy development in Europe and elsewhere.
  Role of ubiquitin protein ligase Nedd4.1 and Nedd4.2 in the mouse dopaminergic midbrain and its crosstalk with alpha-synuclein
  Dr E Kramer, Prof R Fern
Application Deadline: 21 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Start date. 1 October 2019. Mode of Attendance. Full time or part time. Dos. Professor Edgar Kramer. 2nd Supervisor. Professor Robert Fern.
  The cognitive neuroscience of creative innovation: using EEG, brain stimulation and computational modelling to understand creativity in music
  Dr C Di Bernardi Luft, Dr M Pearce
Application Deadline: 14 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a fully funded PhD studentship in Psychology at the School of Biological and Chemical Sciences (SBCS) at Queen Mary, University of London.
  Genetics of stroke: Determining the underlying pathological reasons for stroke and comparing and contrasting those findings between Caucasian and South Asians.
  Prof P Sharma
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Stroke is the commonest cause of disability, second largest cause of dementia and the third biggest cause of death in the UK. However, by 2050 the World Health Organisation has estimated that 80% of the worlds’ burden of stroke will lie between India and China.
  Molecular Pharmacology of N-Methyl-D-aspartate glutamate receptors
  Dr P Chen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fast neuronal communication at synaptic contacts relies on neurotransmitter release from the presynaptic terminal and the majority of excitatory neurotransmission within the mammalian central nervous system is mediated by the neurotransmitter glutamate.
  PhD Studentship: Immune basis of neurologic function and circuitry
  Dr S Hong
Application Deadline: 5 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a fully-funded PhD studentship in the UK Dementia Research Institute at UCL, UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology, to start 1st October 2019.
  Regulation of autophagy in human embryonic stem cells and its therapeutic application in induced pluripotent stem cell-based disease models
  Dr S Sarkar
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project background. Regulation of proteostasis is critical for maintaining tissue homeostasis. Autophagy, a major intracellular degradation pathway essential for cellular and energy homeostasis, functions in the clearance of aggregation-prone proteins and damaged organelles.
  Analysis of pathogen determinants recognized by the hypervariable immune receptor Dscam
  Dr M Soller
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. To mount an immune response, host organisms must first recognize the pathogen with which they are infected. The first line of defense against pathogen infection in animals is provided through the innate immune response.
