  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Systems-level understanding of calcium dynamics in cardiac cells, and functional effects of their modification in heart failure
  Dr M.A. Colman, Dr A.P. Benson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The mechanical function of the heart is driven by electrical activity through the process of excitation-contraction coupling. Intracellular calcium (Ca2+) signalling is a critical component of this coupling.
  Pragmatic, positive and innovative approaches to tackle doping in amateur-, fitness- and sport to elite competitive sport
  Prof A Petroczi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The recent scandals in sport (e.g., the Lance Armstrong case, systematic doping in Russia, cover ups in IAAF) have questioned the legitimacy of the current anti-doping approach - and drawn attention to the multiple issues that warrant attention.

The MRC Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine (WIMM) has fully funded 4-year Prize PhD (DPhil) Studentships available to start in October 2020.
  Assessing brain blood vessel function in atrial fibrillation using magnetic resonance imaging
  Assoc Prof JP Fisher
Application Deadline: 1 March 2020

Funding Type

The brain possess critical regulatory mechanisms to ensure adequate compensatory blood vessel dilation and increased perfusion (known as “cerebrovascular reactivity”).
  The integration of visually-guided interception with balance
  Dr R Reynolds, Dr S-H Yeo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Control of fast interceptive movements is the highlight of human sensorimotor behaviour, whose flexibility and adaptability far surpasses that of any existing robot.
  University of Cambridge, 4-year PhD Studentship Programme in Cardiovascular Research

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for the Autumn 2020 intake for the University of Cambridge 4-year PhD programme in Cardiovascular Research, funded by the British Heart Foundation.
  EASTBIO - Defining lipidomic biomarkers of the interactions between Western diet and liver health using mass spectrometry imaging
  Prof R Andrew, Dr J Fallowfield, Prof S Webster
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lifestyle factors influence healthy ageing. Dietary choices modify susceptibility to many diseases. The low-fat Mediterranean diet is anti-oxidant and believed beneficial for health, whereas high-fat “Western diet” is associated with negative health outcomes.
