  Exploiting the true joint progenitor cell for articular cartilage repair
  Prof D Chan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Articular cartilage facilitates the frictionless motion of synovial joints. However, once damaged from trauma or excessive loading in daily use, repair is very poor leading to osteoarthritis (OA), a huge medical and social burden.
  Fully Funded PhD Scholarship: The effect of dietary supplementation on cardio-metabolic response and human performance during thermal challenge
  Dr M Waldron
Application Deadline: 22 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This scholarship is funded by Swansea University’s College of Engineering. Start date. January 2020. Subject areas. Exercise physiology, thermal physiology.
  Utilising mechanistic mathematical models to understand cellular heterogeneity of healthy human tendons #NDORMS-2020/7
  Dr S Snelling, Dr A Cribbs, Prof S Waters
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tendons efficiently transfer force from muscles to the skeleton and are fundamental to all forms of motion. Tendons possess a distinct hierarchical organisation.
  PhD Studentship Opportunity in Sudden cardiac death in human athletes – electrophysiological and molecular insights from the animal models
  Dr K Jeevaratnam
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is an exciting fully funded PhD studentship opportunity exploring the electrophysiological and molecular profile of the equine heart as a model for high performing human athletes.
  The effects of mechanical and electrical stimulation on the maturity of tissue engineered skeletal muscle
  Prof M.P. Lewis, Dr A Capel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Skeletal muscle undergoes hypertrophy in response to exercise and mechanical loading, however although this response is well studied and established, the molecular sensors and signaling pathways which produce this response are not fully elucidated.
  Towards a Tissue Engineered Model of a Joint on a Chip
  Prof M.P. Lewis, Dr A Capel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This research project aims to develop a multi-tissue platform that integrates many of the structural tissue components of a musculoskeletal joint; bone, tendon, muscle, cartilage and ligament.
  Novel machine learning methodologies for human action correction in videos
  Dr C Grosan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The goal of this research is to motivate patients with disabilities to get better in a faster, easier and fun way. It will apply artificial intelligence methods to a software that turns traditional physical therapy exercises into interactive applications, including video cogniexergames.
  A multi-tissue in vitro model of osteoarthritis
  Prof M.P. Lewis, Dr D Player
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Osteoarthritis (OA) is a joint disorder which is predominantly found in elderly individuals (Lee et al., 2013), but has recently been linked to sports participation at high levels (Vannini et al., 2016).
  Understanding the metabolic fate of omega -3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (n-3PUFA) in humans
  Dr S Galloway, Dr N Rodriguez-Sanchez, Dr O Witard, Dr M Furber
Application Deadline: 28 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University of Stirling, in partnership with Nutricia Research, is inviting applications for a 3 year full-time funded PhD studentship to commence in November/December 2019.
  Neural mechanisms underlying pain interference with motor learning in the human spinal cord
  Prof D Falla, Dr A Khatibi
Application Deadline: 30 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project involves simultaneous imaging of the brain and spinal cord using Magnetic Resonance Imaging in Humans. The successful applicant will conduct a project evaluating changes in the connectivity between the brain and the spinal cord following the acquisition of new motor skills during the experience of pain.
