  Perceptual-cognitive expertise in dynamic, time-constrained tasks
  Dr J North, Dr A Roca, Dr C Murphy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Title. Perceptual-cognitive expertise in dynamic, time-constrained tasks. Based in. Research Centre for Applied Performance Science, Faculty of Sport, Health, and Applied Science, St Mary’s University, Twickenham, London.
  Evaluation of the validity and utility of emerging technologies to track health, diet and lifestyle (Ref: SF20/APP/BROWNLEE2)
  Dr I Brownlee
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mobile technologies and wearable devices provide novel approaches to collect data that could form the basis of management of diet and lifestyle in reducing long-term risk of disease.
  Cardiac energetics and integrative physiology: Studying key components of the creatine kinase system to understand how they contribute to the pathophysiology of ischaemic heart disease and chronic heart failure.
  Prof C Lygate, Dr S Zervou
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Studying key components of the creatine kinase system to understand how they contribute to the pathophysiology of ischaemic heart disease and chronic heart failure.
  The use of high- and low-melanopic lighting to improve cognitive work in healthcare
  Dr D Phipps, Prof C Dickinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Previous research has supported the notion that lighting conditions play a role in determining how well humans work on healthcare tasks.
  Imaging in Preventive Cardiology Research: improving how we identify and prevent heart disease in young people
  Prof P Leeson, Dr A Lewandowski
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Preventive Cardiology Research Group aims to improve how we identify and prevent heart disease in young people. The group works in three areas.
  Reducing running related injury risk factors in middle-aged runners (Ref: SF20/SER/HAYES2)
  Dr P Hayes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Running popularity has increased in recent years with events such as The Parkrun, a weekly 5-km run, attracting approximately 105,000 participants nationally per week.
  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.
  Effectiveness of novel workplace-based exercise interventions for improving general health and well-being
  Dr N Vollaard, Dr G Ryde
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Public health guidelines recommend that people should take part in at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity per week to improve health.
  International Ph.D. Programs in the Life Sciences

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Life Science Zurich Graduate School consists of several highly competitive Ph.D. programs. We are run jointly by the ETH Zurich and the University of Zurich.
  (EPSRC DTP) Combining computational techniques with movement data to predict adult autism diagnosis
  Dr E Gowen, Dr A Casson, Dr E Poliakoff
Application Deadline: 30 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background Autism is a life-long developmental condition that affects how a person communicates and interacts with people. In addition to these social aspects, ~80% of autistic individuals have coordination difficulties such as poor eye-hand coordination, unstable balance and unusual gait.
  Characterising changes and covariation in physical activity, sedentary behaviour and sleep during childhood and adolescence (AtkinAU19SF)
  Dr A Atkin
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Public health interventions often seek to change the amount of time that people spend in particular behaviours, such as increasing physical activity or reducing sedentary behaviour, with the aim of enhancing health.
  Ligament and tendon repair using a specific population of joint progenitor cells
  Prof D Chan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ligaments and tendons stabilize the musculoskeletal system, controlling mobility. Anterior cruciate ligament in knee joints restrict the dimension of joint movement, while Achilles tendon transmit forces from calf muscle to bone enabling locomotion of ankle joints.
  Stress responses in the diabetic heart: Effects of exercise training and glycaemic control
  Dr C Baldi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The diabetic heart, even before developing disease, has impaired relaxation and contractility. These changes limit the work capacity of the heart (maximal cardiac output) and limit the functional capacity of people with diabetes.
  Developing a clinical tool to quantitatively assess and monitor upper limb and shoulder function in clinical and home settings
  Dr A Shaheen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Upper limb and shoulder disorders are poorly defined, diagnosed and rehabilitated. Current management of these disorders is focussed on the prescription of physiotherapeutic treatments, yet the efficacy of such treatments is not well established and the prognosis of patients with shoulder disorders is very poor.
  Use of inertial sensors for fall prediction in older people
  Dr A Shaheen, Dr A Cocks
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Falls in older people are a common cause of morbidity, mortality and loss of function. The physiological changes to the motor and sensory functions caused by ageing combined with the presence of other age-related diseases put this population at a high risk of falling.
