PhD Studentship - Unit of Academic Primary Care, Warwick Medical School

Title: Use of an automated mobile application as an alternative point of entry to healthcare

Value: This studentship offers an annual stipend at the standard RCUK rate (£14,777 for 2018/2019) and covers full tuition fees at the Home/EU rate for 3.5 years. It also includes £1,000 per annum for consumables.

Deadline: The closing date for applications is : Midday 2nd July 2018.

Project: This 3.5 year PhD studentship provides a unique opportunity for a promising health services researcher to work in a highly topical area. The Advanced Odyssey Clinical Decision Support solution powers a mobile health app that is being used in a pilot being promoted by NHS111 and the wider NHS across the West Midlands. There are already over 2500 assessments per week being made with the app, and this is helping to reduce pressure on the NHS111 service. However, little is known about how patients are experiencing the app and what real life impact this is having on emergency, urgent care and primary care services.

The project will determine the variations of neonatal treatment (e.g. medical, parenting) and environmental risk and protective factors (e.g. schooling, bullying, friendship support) in childhood on adult outcomes across cohorts. Further questions are whether the findings allow to predict future outcomes in preterm children born today or what are the factors that help at risk preterm children beat the odds (resiliency)?

PhD Studentship - Department of History of Art

Title: ERC funded Doctoral Studentship - 'Petrifying Wealth. Religious buildings in Zamora, 11th-13th Centuries : building processes, forms and functions'

University of Warwick and Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Cientificas, Madrid

Value: This studentship covers full tuition fees (full time), offers an annual maintenance stipend of 22,350 Euros, rising to 27,000 Euros for 3 years, includes a fee waiver and is open to Home/EU students only.

Deadline: The deadline for applications is 31st March 2018 with interviews to be held in April 2018.

Project: The construction of church buildings is obviously as old as the dominance of Christianity in Western societies. The petrification of ecclesiastical wealth, however, implied a more recognisable and enduring presence for this institution throughout the medieval landscape, both urban and rural. By studying the stone buildings of Zamora, in Spain, built between c1050 and 1300, the studentship will provide new insights into the means and methods of construction involved and contribute to the larger European study of medieval building construction.

PhD Studentship - School of Engineering

Title: Real-Time Behavioural Dynamics in Microscopic Populations with Noisy Signalling

Value: This studentship offers an annual stipend of £14,800 (tax free), for 3 years, with University full tuition fees paid at the UK/EU rate. The full sstudentship is for UK/EU students only, overseas students will be considered but must meet the difference between UK/EU and Overseas fees.

PhD Studentship - School of Life Sciences

Title: Model-driven engineering of central metabolism

Value: This 3 year studentship covers full tuition fees at the UK/EU rate and an annual stipend at the standard RCUK rate (£14,553 - 2017-2018).

Deadline: Applications will be considered on receipt.

Project Details: In this particular project, the successful candidate will join our ongoing efforts to decipher cellular metabolism and study the basis and consequences of overflow metabolism within key model organisms that are also of biotechnological relevance. In particular, we will aim to quantify overflow metabolism at population and single cell levels using the model species from the kingdom of algae, yeast, and bacteria. We have several species from each kingdom established in our own (and collaborators’) laboratories and have been developing key measurement and quantitative imaging approaches. The successful candidate will use this base to further develop quantitative measurement of cell metabolism and overflows. S/he will then use this data in conjunction with mathematical models to devise rational engineering routes for genetic manipulations. In parallel, the successful candidate will develop synthetic co-cultures that will allow exploiting of overflow metabolism, and thereby achieve higher productivity from the key organisms studied.
