  Transdermal and Topical Drug Delivery: developing novel formulations to increase drug delivery into and through skin
  Prof A Williams
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human skin is a remarkable self-repairing barrier that controls the ingress of environmental contaminants and regulates water loss from the body.
  Use of electroencephalography for the discovery of a functional marker of MCI converting to dementia. The AlzSM project.
  Dr F Tamagnini, Prof G J Stephens, Dr G Stothart
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Dementia is the main chronic disease leading to disability amongst the elder population worldwide and it currently represents a healthcare emergency at a global level.
  Anxiety and motivation in Autism – are social behavioural features driven by social anxiety rather than by a reduced reward response to social stimuli?
  Prof B Chakrabarti
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Social behavioural difficulties are commonly reported by individuals with Autism Spectrum Conditions (ASC). One of the leading theories suggests that these difficulties are brought about by a reduced reward response to social stimuli, i.e.
  Auditory cognition and human factors
  Dr P Beaman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Expressions of interest are invited on any topics related to either auditory cognition and working memory or to human factors as they relate to energy conservation and climate change.
  Basic and Applied Motivation science - the function and nature of human motivation
  Dr K Murayama
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a PhD student position on motivation science, a new emerging interdisciplinary area that examines the nature of human motivation.
  Bilingual Language Processing: Investigating the similarities and differences between native and non-native sentence comprehension
  Dr I Cunnings
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A considerable literature has investigated whether non-native speakers of a language process their non-native language in the same way as native speakers.
  How our emotion affects cognition: From neuroscience, lifespan and psychendocrinological perspectives
  Dr M Sakaki
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is no doubt that emotion and stress affect human cognitive processing, such as memory, attention and decision making. However, the exact effects of emotion on cognition are still unclear as emotion sometimes enhances cognitive processing but sometimes impairs cognitive processing.
  Individual differences in emotion regulation
  Dr C Van Reekum
