CASE Medicine's Professors Mike Tipton and Hugh Montgomery, are offering a funded PhD looking at studying the human neurovascular response to cold. The project will involve using military subjects. Clinically based applicants (such as physiology, ICU, anaesthesia, occupational health, GP etc) are encouraged to apply for this opportunity.

Both Mike and Hugh have a keen interest in the area of physiological and psychological responses to adverse environments and this PhD will offer you the chance to work with colleagues who are leaders in research in this area.
