1. Fully Funded PhD Position in Cardiomyopathy

Summary of PhD Program:

There are several types of cardiomyopathies, including dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM), hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), restrictive cardiomyopathy (RCM) and arrhythmogenic right ventricle cardiomyopathy (ARVC), peripartum cardiomyopathy (PPCM) and Takotsubo (stress) cardiomyopathy, with DCM and HCM being the more general forms of the disease. Compare to DCM, a subset HCM patients who progress into dilated phase of HCM (D-HCM), have higher mortality risk than those with DCM. However, the underlying pathogenic mechanisms are not fully understood.

We have discovered that the hydrogen sulfide producing enzyme, cystathionine -lyase (CSE), plays an important role in cardiac function. Loss of this enzyme leads to a deteriorating left ventricle (LV) systolic function. This is associated with hypertrophic phenotypes and dilated LV suggesting that loss CSE may be involved in D-HCM.

2. Fully Funded PhD Position in Migrant Refugee Community

Summary of PhD Program:

In the United Kingdom refugee arrival and dispersal policies are legislated at the national level, but the delivery of these policies unfolds at the local level. Unpacking how local authorities and what Phillimore (2012) identifies as Migrant Refugee Community Organizations (MRCOs) deliver these policies remains a site of contestation and exploration.

This research project acknowledges the Home Office Indicators of Integration Framework (2019) that provides a broad definition of refugee integration noting its multidimensional nature paying particular attention to the relationally embedded within integration. The document also highlights the contextual nature of a refugee integration journey and acknowledges that those who are best place to understand and support integration are those on the front line.

As part of the application, you will need to supply:

  • A copy of your current CV
  • Copies of your academic qualifications for your Bachelor degree, and Masters degree; this should include both certificates and transcripts, and must be translated in to English.
  • A research proposal statement*
