  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.
  LKAS Studentship: Development of novel optical technology to assess electrical activity of hearts
  Dr C Muellenbroich
Application Deadline: 13 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD studentship is available in the Imaging Concepts Group at Glasgow University, researching advanced multi-photon microscopy.
  Identification of mechanisms underlying atrial fibrillation and effective therapies
  Dr X Wang, Dr V Liu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common cardiac arrhythmia in clinical practice with particular high prevalence in aged populations.
  Context-Aware Data-Driven Approach to Enhance the Wellbeing of Workers in Complex Scenarios (SAM28)
  Dr Yee Mey Goh, Prof M Zecca
Application Deadline: 14 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Loughborough University is a top-ten rated university in England for research intensity (REF2014). In choosing Loughborough for your research, you’ll work alongside academics who are leaders in their field.
  High Performance Productivity (SAM09)
  Dr EM Hubbard, Dr P Sherratt, Dr D Segura-Velandia
Application Deadline: 14 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Loughborough University is a top-ten rated university in England for research intensity (REF2014). In choosing Loughborough for your research, you’ll work alongside academics who are leaders in their field.
  (BBSRC DTP) Examining the neural pathways controlling human swallowing in the older brain through cortical and peripheral neurostimulation
  Prof S Hamdy, Prof R Elliott
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ageing process involves physiological and neurological changes that diminish swallowing safety and efficiency, which may increase the risk of life-threatening complications such as malnutrition and aspiration pneumonia.
  Artificial Intelligence for the Control of Upper Limb Prosthetics
  Dr B Metcalfe, Dr D Zhang, Dr U Martinez Hernandez, Dr B Ainsworth
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The field of rehabilitation and assistive robotics has developed numerous upper and lower limb prosthetic devices for people that have lost their limbs.
  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.
  Optogenenetic voltage reporting to understand cerebellar learning
  Dr R Empson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cerebellar Purkinje neurons, the main output neuron of the cerebellar cortex, undergo a variety of forms of synaptic plasticity that are thought to underlie aspects of motor learning.
  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.
  A population-based computational modelling framework for prognosis of osteoporosis (SL5UF2019)
  Dr S Li
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Localised loss of bone at sites of structural importance can increase risk of osteoporotic fracture, whilst changes in the bone underlying articular cartilage (subchondral bone) such as bone marrow lesions precede osteoarthritic change.
  Addressing unmet clinical needs in the repair and rehabilitation of non-union fractures (SL4UF2019)
  Dr S Li, Dr D Fong
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A non-union is a broken bone that fails to heal. These result from both civilian and military injuries and lead to pain, suffering and loss of dignity.
  Intelligent communication interface for industrial human-robot collaboration (YGUF2019)
  Dr Yee Mey Goh, Dr P Kinnell
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Communication behaviours affect performance in human-robot collaboration (HRC).
  Performance aspects in the development of the smart prosthetic lower limb (SL2UF2019)
  Dr S Li
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Restoration of human functional activity has been a drive for many centuries dating back to early Egyptian and Greek civilizations.
