  Understanding the effects of brain disease on what functional brain imaging signals are telling us about neuronal activity
  Dr C Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Functional brain imaging methods such as functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) have already revolutionized how we can study the processes and functioning of the healthy human brain and are making an increasing impact on our understanding on what goes wrong in disease of the brain.
  Towards a novel biomarker for pain: advanced analysis of oscillatory brain activity in healthy and chronic pain individuals
  Dr E Valentini, Dr C Antonopoulos
Application Deadline: 16 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Basic Funding details – Full time Home/EU fees and a stipend of £15,009 p.a. Application deadline – Friday 16th August 2019. Start date – October 2019.
  STRATIFY: Brain network-based stratification of reinforcement-related mental health disorders.
  Prof G Schumann, Dr E Burke Quinlan
Application Deadline: 25 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our main body of work has been concerned with the identification of neural mechanisms of reinforcement-related disorders. Here we have made seminal contributions to the field.
  Inhibition and Excitation in the brain
  Dr D Field
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

An appropriate balance between excitatory and inhibitory neural processes in the brain underlies healthy psychological function. Two examples of conditions in which there is an imbalance are autism and ADHD.
  Visual and brain development in children with early risk factors
  Prof JE Harding, Prof B Thompson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD position in the area of children’s visual development is available within the University of Auckland, New Zealand in collaboration with the University of Waterloo, Canada.
  Psychological intervention, cognitive training, functional rehabilitation and well-being in clinical populations with brain degeneration
  Dr A Ho
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The concept of human well-being is a fundamental aspect of our existence and is often particularly vulnerable upon diagnosis and/or progression of long-term neurological conditions for which there is no cure, such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and Huntington’s disease.
  What is the impact of atypical neurogenesis on brain activity, cognition and behaviour?
  Dr A McNeill, Dr M Freeth
Application Deadline: 2 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neurogenesis is the process by which stem cells form brain cells. This process is disrupted by genetic mutations causing childhood neurological disorders which cause symptoms such as learning disability, behaviour problems and epilepsy.
  The cognitive Neuroscience of Attention and Working Memory, and Causal Functional Connectivity.
  Dr E Feredoes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our lab uses cutting-edge combinations of neuroimaging and analytic techniques to investigate aspects of human cognition. Specifically, we’re interested in the following.
  Motivation, competition, collaboration and goal-setting – How can we improve post-stroke rehabilitation?
  Dr S Dunne
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Engaging with brain injury rehabilitation is critical in improving the quality of life and maximising the functional improvements that survivors, such as those post-stroke, can make.
  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’).
