PhD position summary/title: NIHR PhD Studentship: Inequalities, barriers and enablers to dementia diagnosis and support. Ref: 5092

This PhD studentship explores inequalities in dementia pathways, particularly initial access to diagnosis as an entry point to treatment and care. Underdiagnosis of dementias is an ongoing issue across the UK and these are patterned by social location, reflecting factors such as deprivation, ethnicity, urban and rural dwelling and living circumstances. Knowledge and understanding of inequalities in accessing diagnosis and support for those living with dementia requires further study to ensure more inclusive dementia services. Those living with a dementia diagnosis have themselves reflected on the challenges and barriers to obtaining diagnosis and support. Drawing on experiential knowledge of different pathways to diagnosis will be vital, and this doctoral project will collaborate with Innovations in Dementia to ensure experiential experts inform the study at all stages.

Deadline : 15th April 2024

PhD position summary/title: Global Commodities in Early Modern Wills’: A Leverhulme Trust funded PhD Studentship in the Department of Archaeology and History Ref: 5048

A PhD studentship analysing global commodities described in early modern wills is available as part of a project at Exeter University and the National Archives. The project uses Transkribus to provide a database of 25,000 transcribed wills for analysis.
A PhD studentship is available as part of Leverhulme Trust-funded research project ‘The Material Culture of Wills: England 1540-1790’. This PhD focuses on the global commodities mentioned in wills, examining their nature, incidence and change over time. The project uses cutting-edge digital humanities techniques to automate the transcription of 25,000 wills from the National Archives. The successful candidate will be provided with a pre-populated database of these wills to analyse for their PhD research.

The period from 1540 to 1790 saw an influx of goods from outside Europe into English homes. These included Indian cotton (calico) and silks, Chinese porcelain, and exotic woods. In addition, objects associated with the consumption of global foodstuffs also appear, such as sugar bowls, coffee pots, and a range of items associated with tea drinking. The importing of goods can be studied via other types of document. However, wills are unique revealing not only ownership but attitudes towards these goods indicating how they were assimilated into English homes and families.

Themes explored in the PhD are likely to include: the types of global commodities found in English wills and the chronology and quantification of their spread; the types of will-makers who owned such goods (with the possibility of case studies of particular groups such as mariners, merchants, gentry, and those resident abroad); the ways such possessions were described and who they were bequeathed to, as evidence of attitudes towards these objects, with comparisons made with traditional English/European items such as silverware and woollen cloth (with the possibility of case studies of particular types of objects such as calico cloth or porcelain).

(06) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title:  Nanoscale computer modelling of blush in protective coatings, Natural Sciences – PhD (Funded) Ref: 5069

Aluminium drinks cans are ubiquitous in everyday life to store and transport beverages and other liquids. These cans have an internal protective coating that acts to protect both the internal contents and the can itself. During coating development, simulation tests have been created to increase the speed of iteration and reduce the time required to screen prototypes. One of the failure mechanisms observed during these is an undesirable whitening (or blush) of the polymer film. The work will develop a nanoscale model of a simple coating using state-of-the-art computational approaches including molecular dynamics and free energy calculations to unravel the fundamental science behind the causes of blush. This project crosses multiple traditional disciplines including chemistry, physics, materials science, and computer science and will provide the successful candidate with the opportunity to broaden their scientific knowledge and communication skills across a range of scientific disciplines. This research makes use of the University of Exeter’s high performance computing (HPC) facility, ISCA, and access to regional, national, and international HPC resources as required.  

This project is co-funded by AkzoNobel AkzoNobel | AkzoNobel, one of the world’s largest protective coating manufacturers. The successful candidate will work within a multi-disciplinary group and have the opportunity to work closely with the industrial sponsor, forging a close working relationship and industrial contacts.
We are seeking a motivated and resourceful student with an interest in Computational Chemistry/Physics and Materials. A familiarity with programming languages (e.g. python) and HPC environments is desirable. We welcome enquiries from all interested candidates. For informal enquiries please contact Dr Charlie Wand (c.wand[at]exeter.ac.uk).

(08) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: AI-enhanced dementia prevention: precision risk reduction using large language models, NIHR Funded PhD in Medical Studies Ref: 5100

This PhD project offers a pioneering opportunity to leverage AI, specifically Large Language Models, for dementia prevention and risk reduction. Supervised by a world-class team from the universities of Exeter and Cambridge, the project involves a systematic review, a modified Delphi consensus study, co-development of a custom LLM, and a pilot study in various healthcare settings. It promises significant advancements in dementia risk profiling and reduction, aligning with the NIHR’s vision for innovative, ethical research. This interdisciplinary approach, underpinned by extensive patient and public involvement, presents a unique chance for impactful research in dementia prevention.


The potential importance of AI in healthcare is well-documented. For instance, the OECD’s ‘Trustworthy Artificial Intelligence in Health’ report emphasizes the potential of AI in transforming health data into actionable insights (2020). Moreover, the NIHR’s support for dementia research underlines the need for innovative approaches in understanding and mitigating dementia risks. The careful integration of patient and public involvement and engagement (PPIE) is crucial in ensuring that AI models like LLMs are developed with ethical considerations and real-world applicability, a principle echoed in the NHSX’s ‘A Buyer’s Guide to AI in Health and Care’ (2020). We have published extensively on the potential of AI to enhance dementia prevention (e.g. our Special Issue of eight papers in press in the leading dementia journal Alzheimer’s & Dementia).


The Doctoral Student will be supervised by a multidisciplinary team led by David Llewellyn, Professor of Clinical Epidemiology and Digital Health and a Director of Research and Impact at the University of Exeter Medical School. Prof Llewellyn is also a Fellow at the Alan Turing Institute, the national institute for data science and AI, where he specializes in the application of AI approaches to combat dementia and promote brain health. He will be joined by Prof Chris Fox, an expert in Clinical Psychiatry and translational dementia research at Exeter Medical School, Dr Hang Dong, a specialist in machine learning and LLMs for healthcare at Exeter Computer Science Department, and Prof Carol Brayne, Director of Cambridge Public Health and dementia expert at the University of Cambridge. Affiliated with both the NIHR Schools of Public Health (Cambridge and Exeter) and Primary Care (Exeter), the supervisors will conduct monthly hybrid meetings and biannual in-person visits between Exeter and Cambridge. Profs Llewellyn and Brayne have already worked together extensively on dementia risk factors, risk profiling and risk reduction (8 joint publications) and this project builds upon that ethos of multi-institutional collaboration. Similarly Profs Llewellyn and Fox are actively collaborating on major NIHR- and BBSRC-funded projects, including projects relating to healthcare technology development.

(09) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: Dunhill Medical Trust Doctoral Training Programme for Ageing Research: Blood pressure and rehabilitation in ageing. PhD Studentships Ref: 5094

Rehabilitation in hospital typically includes a programme of exercise and education to help improve health and reduce disability. Having low blood pressure might stop people aged over 70 from taking part in rehabilitation or from getting the same benefit as those without low blood pressure. This might lead to longer hospital stays, higher risk of falling and need for more care on discharge from hospital.
This PhD will explore the impact of low blood pressure on rehabilitation in hospital settings.
The programme of work will focus on understanding whether blood pressure is associated with engagement and outcomes in hospital rehabilitation and whether wearable technology can be used to guide personalised blood pressure management and rehabilitation. This PhD would be well suited to a student with a background in biomedical science, physiology or physiotherapy.

PhD position summary/title: Ecosystem assessment of the Tristan da Cunha Islands fisheries, Ecology and Conservation PhD (Funded) Ref: 5068

Tristan da Cunha is a remote group of islands in the South Atlantic, situated approximately 2,700km from South Africa and 3,700km from South America, and is part of the United Kingdom Overseas Territory of Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da Cunha. Tristan da Cunha’s Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) covers 754,000km2 and includes 687,000km2 marine protection zone (MPZ) where all fishing is prohibited. However, local sustainable fishing is permitted within inshore fishing zones (around the islands’ coastal waters) and in several seamount fishing zones, with the Tristan rock lobster (Jasus tristani) fishery playing an important role in the Territory’s economy.

This PhD project will support the delivery of key actions outlined in the Tristan da Cunha Marine Management Plan 2021 – 2026 aimed at improving capacity to sustainably manage the island’s fisheries resources. This will involve extended periods (up to 3 months per annum*) on Tristan da Cunha working in partnership with the Fisheries Department to: (1) develop a long-term monitoring framework to establish baselines on the status of key fisheries species; and (2) evaluate the spatial distribution, and economic/ecological impact of marine invasive species, including on the Tristan rock lobster. The student will work in conjunction with supervisors and project partners to shape the research questions and survey protocols to address these objectives, using tools such as baited remote underwater video systems, eDNA, fisheries data analysis, ecological studies and GIS.

*Please note that fieldwork will require travel from UK to Cape Town, South Africa, where onward travel to the islands is by ship – a journey that can take up to 6 days. This is the only form of regular transport to and from islands and so fieldwork is planned around both this schedule and the availability of berths onboard (the ships can only carry up to 12 passengers). Therefore to maximise data collection fieldwork will involve 3 months per annum on the islands.

International applicants need to be aware that you will have to cover the cost of your student visa, healthcare surcharge and other costs of moving to the UK to do a PhD.
