PhD Opportunity with GW4 in Bristol!

31 October 2016

An exciting Ph.D. studentship is now availble in Bristol to work on a project within the GW4 BioMedical Doctoral Training Partnership funded by the MRC.


Towards personalised behavioural obesity treatment in children and adolescents

This project will identify effective measures to characterise obesity-related eating behaviours in children recruited from a hospital clinic and community, such as impulsive over-eating, eating fast or large portions. We will develop tailored interventions provided as ‘apps’, and assess their effects using brain imaging and experimental psychology.
Lead Supervisor: Dr Elanor Hinton
Lead Institution: Bristol

The GW4 BioMed MRC DTP brings together the Universities of Bath, Bristol, Cardiff and Exeter to develop the next generation of biomedical researchers. Students have access to the combined research strengths, training expertise and resources of the four research-intensive universities with opportunities to participate in interdisciplinarity and ‘team science’.
