  Self-organisation as a theory of brain development
  Dr SP Wilson, Dr JV Stone
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Self-organisation is a general theory of how function is assigned to cortical microcircuits. The theory predicts that a balance between cooperative and competitive interactions in local cortical circuits, consolidated by Hebbian learning, results in similar inputs being represented by nearby neurons.
  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’).
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Development of an automated analysis pipeline to study bacterial cell wall structure and resistance to beta-lactam antibiotics
  Dr S Mesnage, Dr M Collins
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The most widely used antibiotics ever discovered (beta-lactams) are targeting the enzymes that polymerize peptidoglycan (PG), the essential component of the bacterial cell wall.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Magnetic resonance imaging of lung fibrosis in interstial lung disease – physics or engineering PhD project
  Prof J Wild, Dr P Ford, Dr S Bianchi
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project the student will work with the primary supervisor (Jim Wild, Professor of MRI physics [email protected]), clinical collaborators in Sheffield (Dr Steve Bianchi) and an industrial partner (Dr Paul Ford, Galapagos Pharmaceuticals) to develop quantitative magnetic resonance imaging methods for the assessment of lung fibrosis.

  Flood and drought assessment in a human-dominated water cycle
  Dr C Rouge
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is an ideal project for a resourceful and driven individual. The successful candidate will develop and hone first-rate analytical, computational and communication skills that will enable them to choose their subsequent career path, whether in academia or industry.

  Toward Next generation of Brain Computer Interfaces
  Dr M Arvaneh
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A brain-computer interface (BCI) provides a direct communication pathway between a human brain and an external device. Using appropriate sensors and data processing algorithms, a BCI maps patterns of brain activity associated with a volitional thought onto signals suitable for communication and control.
  Adaptive Learning in brain-robot interactions
  Dr M Arvaneh
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to develop a non-invasive brain-machine interface (BMI) that allows a user to direct a semi-autonomous robot to perform different tasks through brain signals.
