We forward the details of PhD positions at the Universities of Bath and Exeter
The Universities of Bath and Exeter are seeking applications for PhD candidates for two biology/medicine modelling projects.
Both projects will use a combination of mathematical modelling and data analysis (possibly with some data collection for interested applicants).
The studentship will cover 3.5 years, with a start date of September 2019. However, this is open for EU students only.
The first project will involve multi-scale modelling of skeletal muscle bioenergetics, with applications to deficits in cystic fibrosis. The student would primarily be based at the University of Exeter (with Dr. Kyle Wedgwood & Prof. Craig Williams) with secondments at the University of Bath (with Dr. James Betts).
For more information, see here: http://www.exeter.ac.uk/studying/funding/award/?id=3236
The second project will investigate ion channel mutations associated with dementia.
The student would primarily be based at the University of Bath (with Prof. Alain Nogaret) with secondments at the University of Exeter (with Prof. Andy Randall, Dr. Kyle Wedgwood).
For full details of the project, please visit http://www.gw4biomed.ac.uk/available-projects-2/neuroscience-and-mental-health-projects/ and select the project entitled "In-depth understanding of dementia-associated changes to neuronal signalling"
