  The physiology of uterine smooth muscle contraction
  Dr W Chua, Prof R Lentle
Application Deadline: 20 April 2019
The Medical Physiology Research Unit are seeking a high calibre physiology graduate to undertake a PhD on the mechanics of uterine smooth muscle contraction with a view to gaining greater understanding of the processes associated with labour.
  Sensory perception in control of mammalian life-history
  Dr M Garratt
Applications accepted all year round
Life history theory is built on the assumption that there are trade-offs between life-history traits, such as between early and late-life reproduction, and between reproduction and lifespan.
  Sex hormone actions in frailty and health during ageing
  Dr M Garratt
Applications accepted all year round
It is well established that testosterone and estrogens can influence ageing, with hormone administration improving physical function, muscle and bone strength in some cohorts of the elderly.
  Central modulation of cardiac Sympathetic Nerve Activity following acute MI
  Dr D Schwenke
Applications accepted all year round
The majority of people that suffer a heart attack (acute myocardial infarction; MI) die within the first few hours following the MI.
  Changes in cerebral blood flow trigger an increase in sympathetic nerve activity – implications following acute myocardial infarction
  Dr D Schwenke
Applications accepted all year round
Heart function is controlled by the sympathetic nervous system. Following a heart attack (myocardial infarction. MI), cardiac sympathetic nerve activity (cSNA) becomes dangerously elevated, triggering irregular heartbeats (arrhythmias) that often prove fatal.
  Circadian rhythm of heart rate regulation in diabetes
  Dr R Lamberts, Dr CT Bussey
Applications accepted all year round
Resting heart rate is the strongest predictor of mortality in patients with cardiac disease. Incompetence in heart rate regulation is an undervalued feature of the diabetic heart with major cardiovascular consequences.
  Disturbance of the ‘Cellular uric acid homeostasis’ as the driver for diabetes mellitus, hypertension and cancer
  Dr A Bahn
Applications accepted all year round
My group is interested in how uric acid controls major intracellular metabolic signalling pathways (mTOR, AMPK) in order to understand the onset of diabetes mellitus, hypertension and cancer.
  Modulation of the pulmonary vasculature in health and disease
  Dr D Schwenke
Applications accepted all year round
The pulmonary microcirculation is tightly modulated by the autonomic nervous system, the pulmonary vessel endothelium and the vascular smooth muscle.
  Novel approaches for treating cardiovascular disease
  Dr J Erickson
Applications accepted all year round
Cardiovascular disease is the primary cause of death throughout most of the world, and existing therapeutic options are unsuitable for a large percentage of patients.
  Optogenenetic voltage reporting to understand cerebellar learning
  Dr R Empson
Applications accepted all year round
Cerebellar Purkinje neurons, the main output neuron of the cerebellar cortex, undergo a variety of forms of synaptic plasticity that are thought to underlie aspects of motor learning.
