  Developing a sensory processing measure for people with dementia
  Prof C Surr, Dr SJ Smith
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sensory processing changes, such as heightened sensitivity to touch, are common in dementia and they, alongside over or under-stimulation, are thought to contribute to increased distress and care interactions that staff may find difficult to support effectively.
  Role of metal resistance in foodborne bacterial disease
  Dr J Morrissey, Prof J M Ketley
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Foodborne infectious diseases are frequent and growing public health problems worldwide (World Health Organisation).
  Precision Medicine DTP - Data-Driven Decision Making for Paediatric Triage in Acute Care
  Dr A Shah, Prof S Cunningham
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Respiratory diseases affect hundreds of millions of people in both the economically developing and developed world causing morbidity and mortality [1].
  Music and language processing in autism and amusia
  Dr F Liu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Music and language are fundamental traits of human existence. They both rely on complex sound sequences to convey meaning. It has been hotly debated whether the two are processed through distinct cognitive modules or using shared mechanisms.
  Dynamic prediction modelling in Parkinson’s disease
  Dr D McLernon, Dr A Macleod
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

1. Background to the project. Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a progressive, disabling, neurodegenerative disorder which is common in the elderly.
  Understanding the health behaviour behind GP help-seeking with potential cancer symptoms.
  Prof P Murchie, Dr D Powell, Dr R Vieira
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

1. Background to the project.
  Developmental dyslexia: a multi-sensory approach
  Dr B Jennings, Prof T Wydell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of the proposed project will be to investigate the multi-sensory integration of light and sound information, i.e., the combination of processing in the visual and auditory systems, in children and young adults with developmental dyslexia.
  Use of inertial sensors for fall prediction in older people
  Dr A Shaheen, Dr A Cocks
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Falls in older people are a common cause of morbidity, mortality and loss of function. The physiological changes to the motor and sensory functions caused by ageing combined with the presence of other age-related diseases put this population at a high risk of falling.
  Interpretation of Features in Biological Images
  Dr A Managh
Application Deadline: 30 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are seeking applicants with an interest in data analysis and programming to develop methods to extract information from high resolution images of metals in tissue.
  Childhood growth impairment and markers of environmental enteropathy
  Prof P Cooper, Dr I Chis Ster
Application Deadline: 1 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is an exclusive opportunity for a student interested in bridging statistical epidemiology with data collection and laboratory training.
  Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning to Improve the Effectiveness and Efficiency of Health Care
  Dr B Brown, Prof D Dowding
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Artificial intelligence (AI) is widespread throughout commercial industries (think Google, Uber, Alexa, and Siri), but rarely used in health care settings.
  Animal source food safety risks along the livestock value chain in Ethiopia
  Dr A Duncan, Dr L Boden
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Animal source foods (ASF) are nutrient dense and are important sources of crucial micronutrients for human nutrition. In Ethiopia, meat is consumed in a variety of traditional forms and in many cases is consumed raw (teresega and kitfo).
  Application of Data-Driven Technologies to Aid Pneumonia Diagnosis in Resource-Constrained Settings
  Dr A Shah, Prof S Cunningham
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Pneumonia is the leading cause of death among children younger than 5 year worldwide. The majority of these deaths occur in resource-constrained settings.
  E4 DTP - Gene by air pollution interactions in human wellbeing and health
  Prof A Tenesa, Prof M Heal
Application Deadline: 9 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Summary. A multidisciplinary project between genetic epidemiology and environmental exposure to identify gene by air pollution interactions for a wide range of human chronic diseases.
  Precision Medicine DTP - Understanding the neurobiological basis of co-morbid chronic pain and depression by integrating genomics, peripheral biomarkers and neuroimaging data
  Research Group: Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences
  Dr H Whalley, Prof M Fallon, Dr D Smith, Dr T-K Clarke
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Chronic pain is a major public health problem affecting one fifth of the general population(1). Major depressive disorder (MDD) is also a major health concern and is now the leading cause of disability worldwide(2).
