  Solidarity in social movements: Antecedents and consequences of high-status groups’ participation in social justice efforts
  Dr A Iyer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Social movements typically seek to achieve justice or equality for a low-status group (e.g., women or ethnic minorities). Participation in such movements is rarely limited to members of the low-status group.
  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’).
  The virtual body schema project: How can body schema be objectively defined and measured?
  Dr SP Wilson, Dr T Stafford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The body schema can be loosely defined as the representation of the body in space, i.e., how you know you can reach the pint at the bar but not the bottle behind it; that you can fit through the door but not the cat-flap; that you must dive to kick a ball or duck to avoid a punch.

Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Organisations seek to increase the representation of disadvantaged groups (e.g., women, ethnic minority groups) by implementing affirmative action programs, which include policies and procedures to help reduce bias and provide additional opportunities for target groups.
  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.
  Weight stigma and health behaviours

Weight stigma (anti-fat attitudes, weight-based prejudice and discrimination) is experienced by 54% of adults and deters individuals from engaging in healthy behaviours targeted in obesity interventions (e.g.

BBSRC Thematic Group. Frontier Bioscience. Organisms often respond to new challenges through ‘exploratory mechanisms’ (Gerhart & Kirschner, 1997), which are complex developmental systems that operate by generating variation (i.e.
  EASTBIO The role of sequential effects in multisensory processing: A combined computational modelling and electrophysiology study
  Dr T Otto, Dr I Jentzsch
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type
