Postgraduate Research Opportunities

Clinical Neurosciences Research Groups
Anaesthesia and Critical Care

To improve outcomes for patients cared for in the operating theatre or intensive care.

Centre for ADHD and Neurodevelopmental Disorders Across the Lifespan To bring together clinicians, service users and academics with an interest in neurodevelopmental disorders, including attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and Tourette syndrome (TS).
Centre for Dementia To improve the lives of people with dementia and their carers, through high quality, useful research looking at how people with dementia spend their time and what helps them to get quality from life.
Centre for Translational Neuroimaging in Mental Health To translate the wealth of information about the function of the human mind and brain derived from neuroscience and neuroimaging into clinically relevant applications.
Clinical Neurology Mainly focuses on multiple sclerosis, an inflammatory demyelinating disease of the central nervous system that affects about 100,000 people in the UK. We have a broad range of expertise in this field, covering disease pathogenesis, pathology, imaging by advanced techniques, experimental disease models, epidemiology, and clinical trials.
Community Rehabilitation To find and implement rehabilitation techniques that improve the quality of life, in a cost effective way, for people with severe health conditions.
Hearing Sciences research group To take important discoveries from basic auditory (hearing) science and translate them into novel treatments and management strategies for patients, and understand the consequences of hearing loss, tinnitus and hyperacusis so we can develop better ways for treatments to improve patients’ lives.
Long Term Conditions To promote wellbeing and enable people with long term conditions to maximise participation in meaningful social lives.
Neuroscience at Nottingham To bring together neuroscientists across departments in order to develop the University of Nottingham’s established strengths in fundamental and clinical neuroscience.
Nottingham Biomedical Research Centre To answer some of the fundamental questions about the mechanisms of hearing conditions, the most effective interventions to improve quality of life and provide the evidence for translating new technologies and techniques into clinical practice.
Ocular Neovascularisation Research Group To study eye diseases caused by new blood vessel formation and their clinical treatments to improve understanding and future treatments.
Ocular Surface Research To prevent ocular surface-blindness by combating the visually debilitating conditions affecting the ocular surface.
Ophthalmology To undertake high quality clinical and translational research in order to improve the treatment of preventable blindness.
Paediatric Neurosciences research group To pursue and support paediatric neuroscience research activities, both with colleagues in the University of Nottingham, in Nottingham Children’s Hospital at the Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust and beyond.
Radiological Sciences Group To develop quantitative imaging biomarkers for improved understanding, diagnosis and treatment guidance.
Stroke research To perform world-leading research that informs and improves clinical stroke care.
Stroke Network A network of researchers and clinicians from the University of Nottingham and the Nottingham University Hospitals Trust dedicated to reducing the impact of strokes.
Vascular Medicine, Derby To perform high quality research in diseases associated with vascular dysfunction to improve patient care.
