Our overarching PhD/MPhil programme of Journalism Studies covers all projects that we supervise within any of the fields of journalism, media and cultural studies.

PhD, MPhil Full-time, Part-time Programme

Doctor of Education

The professional doctorate is a doctoral qualification that is fully equivalent to the PhD, but substantially different from it in that it is strongly professionally oriented focussing on ‘applied’ rather than ‘pure’ research.

EdD Part-time Programme

Doctor of Social Work

The professional doctorate is a doctoral qualification that is fully equivalent to the PhD, but substantially different from it in that it is strongly professionally oriented focussing on ‘applied’ rather than ‘pure’ research.

DSW Part-time Programme

Doctor of Health Studies

The professional doctorate is a doctoral qualification that is fully equivalent to the PhD, but substantially different from it in that it is strongly professionally oriented focussing on ‘applied’ rather than ‘pure’ research.

DHS Part-time Programme

Geography and Planning

As a top-rated research school with the ambition to play a leading role in academic and policy debates at national and international levels, we aim to recruit committed research students for the pursuit of innovative, cutting-edge research at PhD level.

PhD Full-time, Part-time Programme

Languages and Translation Studies

We have a strong, intellectually stimulating and vibrant research culture into which postgraduates are inducted and embedded.

PhD, MPhil Full-time, Part-time Programme

SPPD Part-time Programme

Studying human neuropsychiatric disease in DLG2 deficient human neurons

This PhD project in Medicine tries to understand DLG2’s role during neural development and in mature neurons using variety of techniques.

Project

Chromatin dynamics in Huntington's disease

The aim of this project is to investigate whether chromatin structure influences CAG repeat expansion in Huntingtin, and whether repeat expansion in turn alters chromatin structure.

Project

Dynamic models for mesenchymal stem cells: a 3-D ex vivo culture system mapped to existing 2-D differentiation models

The aim of this project is to obtain appropriate kinetic and phenotypic maps that allow us to understand the cell and molecular aspects of tissue and dentine regeneration.

Project

Advanced virotherapies for immuno-oncolytic applications

This project will develop refined virotherapies for the delivery immunotherapies in vivo.

Project

Mitochondria and peroxisome crosstalk in neurons: How and why?

This project will use novel in vivo Drosophila genetic approaches and CRISPR cell culture techniques to investigate mitochondria and peroxisomes.

Project

Optimising expansion of CD8+ T cells for immunotherapy

This study aims to generate new understanding/reagents that will enable the expansion of highly functional T-cells for immunotherapy.

Project

Investigation of motor adaptation using translational neurophysiology

This project will utilise both animal and human techniques to understand the neural network basis of age-related motor adaptation.

Project

Ehmt1 and the epigenetic control of genomic imprinting in neurodevelopmental disorders

This project will explore whether haploinsuffficiency of Ehmt1 leads to abnormal genomic imprinting during neurodevelopment.

Project

Exploring the emergence of psychotic experiences using multimodal neuroimaging and mathematical modelling

The aim of this PhD project is to understand the computational and neurocognitive processes underlying the emergence of psychotic experience such as hallucinations and delusions.

Project

Understanding how C-type lectin-like receptors collaborate to clear fungal infections

The aim of this project is to determine whether CLR targeting/co-engagement could have therapeutic benefits.

Project

Control of CD4+ T cell responses by human gamma/delta T cells

The objective of this project is to define the molecular mechanisms underlying CD4+ T-cell polarisation by γ5 T-cells and identify ways to manipulate them for future interventions.

Project

Locating the absent self: characterising neurocognitive impairments of self-representation in autism spectrum disorder

Using novel behavioural measures, this project will explore how the alternations in the autistic brain give rise to impaired self-representation in autism.

Project

Dissecting the impact of L-selectin proteolysis on T lymphocyte dependent virus immunity

This project will determine how fragments of digested L-selectin control the ability of killer T cells to detect and kill virus.

Project

Mechanisms controlling the switch between the pro- and anti-fibrotic functions of the long non-coding natural anti-sense to hyaluronan synthase 2

This project will dissect, at the molecular level, the mechanisms that regulate HAS2-AS1 expression/function leading to a HA-dependent pro-fibrotic cell-phenotype and which can be used as potential novel therapeutic targets.
