Job posts

Hume PhD Scholarship
Maynooth University

The SleepTimeData PhD project will use novel radar-based technology for the long-term sleep monitoring of individuals with a neuropsychiatric or neurodevelopmental conditions. The project will use a combination of analytical approaches, including quantitative analysis of sleep data, psychometrics and qualitative assessment of participants’ experiences. This comprehensive approach aims to drive innovative advances in sleep data analytics to advance our understanding of mental health challenges.

Deadline: Tuesday 5th March

This PhD project aims to investigate the role of sleep and circadian rhythm disruption in the comorbidity of depression with cardiometabolic diseases (CMD) such as hypertension and diabetes. The study will analyse data from the UK Biobank cohort, which includes over 500,000 individuals, and actigraphy-derived sleep measures from around 90,000 individuals.

Post-doctoral Fellow
Northumbria University

This position will work within a multi-site, multidisciplinary project based at the Northumbria Sleep Research Laboratory.The post-doctoral research fellow will assess the acute effect of lithium administration on non-visual responses to light including melatonin suppression, pupillary responses, and EEG and cognitive changes. This will be done using a randomised controlled trial (RCT) in healthy adults and will entail participant recruitment and project planning/management as well as field and laboratory work. The role will involve overnight work in the sleep laboratory in addition to daytime psychological testing and taking and managing biological samples. Full training in all aspects of the study will be provided.

Post-doctoral Research Fellow
Northumbria University

 The post-doctoral research fellow will conduct a comparative analysis of retinal organoids from individuals with bipolar disorder and healthy controls. The goal is to assess the effects of lithium exposure on individual organoids and populations of retinal organoid cells using electrophysiology, light stimulation and pharmacology studies, as well as immunofluorescence analyses and high-resolution microscopy. The aim is to test new hypotheses on the pathophysiology and treatment of bipolar disorder.

SWBio DTP PhD Studentship
Bristol University

The overall aim of this collaborative studentship is to test the hypothesis that ageing changes the potassium channel mediated membrane properties of clock neurons. Some aspects of this project include, developing a model of day/night differences in clock neuron excitability and test if the proposed potassium channel changes switch the neurons between day/night; and developing a model of the effect of ageing on clock neuron excitability.
