  When do astrocytes contribute to the control of brain blood flow?
  Dr C Howarth
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In order that the brain can function normally, it is essential that blood flow within the brain is well matched to neuronal metabolic demand.
  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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  MSc BY RESEARCH PROJECT ’Approach – Avoidance foraging; a novel and ethological rodent assay to evaluate anxiety-like behaviour and the brain networks that support it’
  Dr B Lumb, Prof R Apps, Dr C Lawrenson, Dr Robert Drake
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This Masters by Research (MSc) is entirely laboratory based giving you the best possible experience of life as a researcher as well enough time to develop skills and techniques.
  The synthetic littermate project: How do natural experiences shape the functional organisation of the developing brain?
  Dr SP Wilson, Prof AJ Prescott
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

How do natural experiences shape the functional organisation of the developing brain? To address this question directly, we have been developing a novel robotic technology - the synthetic littermate (or ’surrogate’).
  Understanding eye-hand coordination in object interception – a computational modelling approach
  Dr S-H Yeo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  How does the one-humped Arabian camel survive in the desert without drinking?
  Prof D Murphy, Dr M Greenwood
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Whilst water balance is aggressively defended in all mammals, this is all the more so in the one-humped Arabian camel, which has a remarkable capacity to thrive in the hot, arid conditions of the Arabian deserts (1), and to survive extended periods of dehydration (2).
  A multi-modal approach to deep phenotyping frailty
  Prof P Greenhaff, Prof J Gladman, Dr S Francis
Application Deadline: 17 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Frailty is a significant challenge to ageing individuals, of central importance to well-being and a widely accepted public health problem.
  Development of a neuro-prosthesis for hand-arm rehabilitation after stroke
  Prof D Howard
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

University of Salford and Shandong BetR Medical Technology Co. Ltd. The studentship is fully funded and includes. A fee waiver. A stipend of £15,824 p.a.
  Deciphering Roles of SUMOylation in mini-Human Brains in Health and Disease
  Dr C Guo, Dr S Brown
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neurodegenerative disorders and cerebral ischemia are incurable conditions, imposing tough medical challenges and a substantial economic burden on health services.
  Embodied learning: How motor difficulties constrain learning during parent-child interaction in infants/toddlers with Down syndrome and Williams syndrome
  Research Group: Brain and Cognition Research Group
  Dr D D'Souza, Dr H D'Souza, Dr J Lambie
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Proposed supervisory team. Dr Dean D’Souza ([email protected])- (Anglia Ruskin University), Dr Hana D’Souza - (Cambridge University), Dr John Lambie ([email protected])- (Anglia Ruskin University).
