  Funded Education PhD opportunities
The Manchester Institute of Education facilitates research at the cutting edge of theory and practice. We have a commitment to addressing social justice, and to enabling evidence informed educational change through both our scholarly activities and our collaborative partnerships with professionals.
  (BBSRC DTP) Mapping the structural and functional organisation of the human brain via in vivo neuroimaging and complex network analysis.
  Dr L Cloutman, Dr A Woollams
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The performance of the wide range of cognitive tasks we carry out in our daily lives including remembering, speaking, deciding and planning depends upon the interaction of complex networks of widely distributed brain regions.
  (BBSRC DTP) A new animal test of emotional cognition
  Dr J Gigg, Dr D Talmi, Prof J Neill
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project will create and implement a new animal test for emotional biases in attention and memory that is more closely linked with the impact that emotion has on the same functions in humans.
  An exploration of mechanisms of change in help-seeking for self-harm
  Dr N Husain, Dr P Taylor
Applications accepted all year round
The decision to seek help can be the first step towards recovery for individuals who are struggling with self-harm, but it can also result in negative attitudes from others and lead to greater secrecy, feelings of shame, and potentially a exacerbation of the self-harm itself.
  An investigation of trauma, dissociation and insecure attachment styles in the context of psychosis
  Dr K Berry, Dr F Varese, Dr S Bucci
Applications accepted all year round
The proposed mixed-methods PhD aims to explore the impact of trauma, dissociation and insecure attachment styles in people who experience from psychosis.
  Discrimination, trauma, and psychosis - advancing theory and measurement development
  Dr D Edge, Dr F Varese, Dr K Berry
Applications accepted all year round
Background. Higher rates of schizophrenia and related psychoses are one of the most consistent findings from decades of research into the mental health of ethnic minorities.
  Emotion regulation in strategic decision-making: A cognitive neuroscience approach
  Dr D Talmi, Prof G Hodgkinson, Dr P Warren
Applications accepted all year round
The emotional response to wins and losses influences decision-making. Emotion regulation refers to a family of techniques that modify the emotional response.
  Feasibility of delivering group psychological support to stroke survivors in community settings
  Dr E Patchwood, Prof A Bowen, Dr S Knowles
Applications accepted all year round
Supporting people to come to terms with persisting disability and life after stroke is a high priority for stroke research. There is an urgent need for evidence-based, clinically and financially effective psychological interventions that can be feasibly delivered for community-based stroke survivors.
  Fluency and Context in Recognition Memory
  Dr J Taylor, Dr D Talmi
Applications accepted all year round
This project relates to a sort of ‘memory illusion’. On a recognition memory test, increasing the perceptual fluency of a test cue increases the likelihood that the word will be endorsed as ‘familiar’, even if it hasn’t been seen in the study phase (and therefore should have been called ‘new’).
  Impulsivity in decision making: investigating the relationship between inhibitory control and rational decision-making in different contexts and modalities
  Dr P Warren, Dr J McBride
Applications accepted all year round
Impulsivity plays an important role in healthy behaviour, but it can also be dysfunctional and has been linked to mania, substance abuse, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, pathological gambling, and eating-disorders (e.g., De Wit, 2009; Evenden, 1999; Moller et al., 2001, Verdejo, Lawrence, & Clark, 2008).
