  Integrated mathematical modelling and experimental research into interactions between microorganisms
  Dr J U Kreft
Applications accepted all year round
Our group aims to combine theoretical & experimental approaches to understand major problems in the ecology and evolution of microbes.
  Causes of stress induced cardiac arrhythmia
  Dr J Winter, Dr D Pavlovic
Applications accepted all year round
Abnormal heart rhythms, known as arrhythmia, are a major cause of morbidity and mortality, particularly in individuals with pre-existing cardiovascular disease.
  Impact of diet on cardiovascular responses to acute mental stress
  Dr C Rendeiro, Dr JJCS Veldhuijzen van Zanten
Applications accepted all year round
Cardiovascular diseases remain the second cause of premature death in the UK. In particular, mental stress is a known important contributing factor to mechanisms underlying cardiovascular events, with mounting evidence suggesting that mental stress can negatively affect human endothelial function (Poitras et al., 2013).
  Understanding eye-hand coordination in object interception – a computational modelling approach
  Dr S-H Yeo
Applications accepted all year round
This PhD project with Dr Yeo will focus on understanding how we perform interception. Interceptive movements--such as catching a gently thrown ball, quickly grabbing a tilting cup to avoid spilling or even just handshaking someone--feel like trivial everyday tasks for us that seemingly look too simple to study.
  Investigating motor impulse control in Parkinson’s disease using non-invasive brain stimulation
  Dr H MacDonald, Dr C J McAllister
Applications accepted all year round
The ability to control our urges and impulses is arguably one thing that sets humans apart from other species. We have the capacity to think before we act.
  Cortical modulations of postural control in ageing.
  Dr S Chiou
Applications accepted all year round
Healthy aging is typically associated with structural and functional changes in the brain that have been shown to be related to declines in physiological function.
  Psychological, Physiological, and Behavioural Responses to Stress
  Dr S Williams
Applications accepted all year round
By its very nature, sport and physical activity can be very stressful. How an individual responds to these demands, and whether they appraise this stress as challenging or threatening can influence whether they excel or fall to pieces in such situations.
  Are golf lessons meeting the needs of the learner?
  Dr M W Bridge
Applications accepted all year round
The traditional golf lesson which many golfers have experience usually involves the delivery of an amount of technical knowledge by the golf coach.
  Are golfers practising in an optimal way?
  Dr M W Bridge
Applications accepted all year round
If you walk along any golf range in the world you will undoubtedly see many golfers carrying out what might be termed repetitive 'ball bashing'; which seems to be the default mode of practice for the vast majority of golfers.
