  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’).
  Biomechanical modelling of the human hand for improved control of myoelectric prostheses
  Dr E Chadwick, Dr M Giannaccini
Application Deadline: 1 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The loss of a hand or greater part of the upper limb can mean a devastating loss of function for an individual. Myoelectric prostheses are robotic hands intended for replacement of the natural hand in cases of hand amputation or limb difference.
  Movement-science inspired development of upper-limb prostheses for young children
  Dr S Watt, Dr K Valyear
Application Deadline: 1 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project rationale and description. Growing up without a hand poses unique and difficult challenges. Prosthesis provision for infants and young children is extremely limited, and the basic-science principles that inform how children learn to use prosthetic devices are largely unknown.
  PhD Studentship in Biomechanics and energetics of foraging in leaf-cutter ants.
  Dr D Labonte
Application Deadline: 1 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Evolutionary Biomechanics Laboratory invites applications for a research studentship in the field of insect biomechanics/physiology, leading to the award of a PhD degree.
  Honking a bicycle as a non-holonomic Fermi-like acceleration (Advert Reference: SF19/EE/MPEE/KIRILLOV)
  Dr O Kirillov, Dr S Régnier, Dr B Huard
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Honking means cycling out of the saddle. Cyclists use this way of riding to accelerate. In this process, the body of the cyclist moves rhythmically side to side with respect to the plane of the bicycle, while the frame of the bicycle rocks or sways with respect to the vertical position.
  Blood Work - Exploring Direct to Consumer Health Monitoring and Performance Enhancement
  Dr CRM Matthews, Prof J Hunt
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Needle and syringe exchange programmes were developed as part of harm reduction policies in the mid-1980s. While this was largely as a response to public fears about the threat of HIV/AIDS, they also acted to provide users with various support mechanisms, targeted education, signpost treatments and medical screening.
  Stress and health: Lifespan stress and cardio-metabolic disease risk pathways through cardiovascular stress reactivity
  Prof AC Whittaker, Dr P Coffee
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

An exciting opportunity for a full-time PhD period of study is available in the Faculty of Health Sciences and Sport, University of Stirling.
