PhD Studentship: The impact of major housing adaptations to bathing facilities for carers of older adults

Health & Medical - UK Jobs

Award Summary
100% of home tuition fees paid and annual living expenses at UKRI rate, currently £16,062 per year. A research training support grant of £5000 per year is available to cover research costs and local/national/international travel (conferences and exchanges). This award is only open to those eligible for home (UK) tuition fees.
Overview
Appropriate housing has a key role in maintaining and supporting older adults’ independence and reducing demand for health and social care services. Housing adaptations are ‘any permanent alteration carried out to a building with the aim of making it more suitable for a disabled person’ (Heywood, 2004). Major adaptations to bathing facilities usually involve removing the bath and replacement with a level- or easy-access shower. These adaptations are also important for carers of older adults and may lead to improvements in their quality of life, enabling them to maintain their caring role and potentially alleviating admissions to care homes. We use a broad definition of ‘carer’, encompassing all those who help in whatever way and who are not paid (including family members and friends). 
We welcome applicants interested in exploring the impact of bathing adaptations on carers of older adults. We are particularly keen to work with applicants wishing to use mixed-methods drawing on qualitative and quantitative approaches), or multi-method qualitative studies (drawing on a range of qualitative approaches) and are more longitudinal in focus. However, we are open to working with the candidate to support them in whatever methods, methodology and theory they feel would be most appropriate.

Virtual Reality based intervention for the Management of Hemiplegic Shoulder Pain (HSP) in people affected by a stroke

Health & Medical - UK Jobs

An opportunity to apply for a funded full-time PhD in the Faculty of Health and Applied Science, UWE Bristol. The studentship will be funded by UWE Bristol.
The expected start date of this studentship is 1 January 2023.
About the Studentship
Applications are invited from ambitious, self-motivated and enthusiastic candidates, with a background in a health-related discipline to work on a fully-funded PhD studentship. Funding and stipend are provided by UWE Bristol to develop a Virtual Reality (VR) based intervention for the Management of Hemiplegic Shoulder Pain (HSP) in people with Stroke. HSP has a reported incidence of up to 40% that results in reduced functional use of the arm, interference with rehabilitation, higher rates of depression and poorer quality of life.
The aim of this project is to develop an intervention using virtual reality (VR) that provides visual feedback (presented through a head-mounted device) and through sensors applied on the arm during repetitive upper-limb tasks/exercises to reduce shoulder pain and improve function in people with stroke. The results of the proposed PhD research will inform the design of a post-doctoral definitive randomised controlled trial investigating the effectiveness of the VR interventions to treat HSP in stroke population. The programme of research will provide the successful candidate with an excellent opportunity to develop a wide range of research skills and experiences in preparation for a post-doctoral clinical research journey. The PhD researcher will be primarily based at Glenside campus, UWE Bristol within the Centre for Health and Clinical Research, and will be expected to directly engage with relevant healthcare professionals and people with stroke via University Hospitals Bristol and Weston, North Bristol NHS Trusts and Charity organisations.
For an informal discussion about the studentship, please email Praveen Kumar at [email protected]

Elucidating the molecular pathways through which an unhealthy diet contributes to sight loss

Health & Medical - UK Jobs

Project Title: Elucidating the molecular pathways through which an unhealthy diet contributes to sight loss. 
Lead Institute / Faculty: CES/Medicine
Main Supervisor: Dr J. Arjuna Ratnayaka
Other members of the supervisory team: Professor Andrew J. Lotery and Dr Helena Lee
Amount of stipend and fees: The first year at £16,062.00 increasing each year for three years at UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) rates.  Due to funding restrictions this position is only open to UK applicants.
Duration of the award:  Full-time for three years from 1st October 2022 until 30th September 2025
Project description: Applications are invited for an exciting new PhD studentship funded by Sight Research UK. Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a complex blinding disease, where a combination of genetic and non-genetic risk factors, such as an unhealthy diet, results in the irreversible loss of central vision. The project builds on our published work to elucidate the molecular pathways of damage to the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) and associated tissues in the outer retina. The student will use a combination of in-vitro cell as well as mouse models and must be willing to work with mice. Techniques such as cell and molecular biology, histology, biochemistry as well as imaging will be used for the project. Non-invasive retinal scans will also be obtained from living mice. Potential discoveries could provide new information on diet-induced disease pathways in the retina that predisposes individuals to AMD, and whether such effects could be reversed through better nutrition. This knowledge could also inform public health campaigns, thereby help reduce the burden of sight-impairment and blindness in the UK. The successful applicant will join a dynamic research team consisting of undergraduate/postgraduate research students and postdocs. The candidate is expected to be highly motivated with an excellent work ethic.
Please contact: Dr J. Arjuna Ratnayaka ([email protected])  
Person Specification: See here
The successful candidate is likely to have the following qualifications:
A 1stor 2:1 degree in a relevant discipline and/or second degree with a related Masters
A willingness to work with mice (suitable training and monitoring will be provided)
Funding information: Fees and stipend for UK applicants for the duration of the project (36 months). The project is available on a full-time basis only. Non-UK students need not apply.
Administrative contact and how to apply:
Please complete the University’s online application form, which you can find at
