  Accessing natural and induced variation to improve the protein quality of faba bean
  Prof D O'Sullivan, Dr P Tosi
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
This PhD project is about uncovering the molecular genetic basis for faba bean protein content and protein quality, specifically the proportions of essential amino acids in the seed protein.
  Lumpfish Welfare and Nutrition on Growing Farms: developing optimal nutritional requirements for juvenile lumpfish based on a survey of wild populations
  Dr S Rey
Application Deadline: 28 March 2019
The University of Stirling is one of the UK’s most progressive research universities, with leading expertise in the fields of culture and society, health and wellbeing, the environment and people, enterprise and the economy, and sport.
  Could blood digestion be the poultry red mite’s Achille’s heel – a novel ‘omic and gene knockdown approach to the control of Dermanyssus gallinae
  Dr S Burgess, Dr A Nisbet, Dr A Bowman, Dr J Sternberg
Application Deadline: 12 April 2019
Infestation of laying hen houses with poultry red mites (Dermanyssus gallinae) causes major animal welfare and economic problems for the egg-producing industry worldwide, costing in excess of €231 million per year in the European Union alone in control and production losses.
  Evaluation of the properties of organic substrates following use in insect bioconversion systems
  Mr S Hall
Application Deadline: 7 April 2019
Following development of insect larvae organic rearing substrates can be used as fertilisers. The properties of this remaining substrate are poorly defined and functional claims have been made without robust evidence.
  Novel dietary protein formulations, skeletal muscle metabolism and ageing, Sport and Health Sciences – PhD (Funded)
  Dr B Wall, Prof F Stephens
Application Deadline: 24 March 2019
Supervisors. Dr Benjamin T Wall, University of Exeter. Dr Francis B Stephens, University of Exeter. The University of Exeter’s College of Life and Environmental Sciences, in partnership with Marlow Foods, is inviting applications for a fully-funded PhD studentship to commence in April 2019.
  Immune Development in a Piglet Model of Environmental Enteric Dysfunction
  Dr M Lewis, Prof G Gibson
Applications accepted all year round
Summary. Environmental enteric dysfunction (EED) affects 200 million children in low- and middle-income countries and has extremely detrimental consequences for long-term health.
  Structure-function relationships governing polyphenol bioactivity with respect to plasma membranes
  Prof R A Frazier, Dr R Green
Applications accepted all year round
This project aims to investigate polyphenol binding to lipid membrane surfaces with a view to understanding how polyphenol structure and aggregation within the gastrointestinal tract (GIT) affects the bioavailability of these nutraceuticals.
  A 3D in vitro model of wound healing incorporating skin, nerves and immune cells
  Dr A M Rajnicek, Dr H M Wilson
Application Deadline: 29 March 2019
Diabetes, paralysis, being bed ridden and other conditions can result in chronic wounds that fail to heal, with significant personal consequences for patients and an annual cost of £4.5-5.1 billion annually (Guest et al., 2015) to the National Health Service.
  Developing a molecular toolkit for breeding of the black soldier fly, Hermetia illucens
  Mr S Hall
Application Deadline: 7 April 2019
Insects can provide a source of protein for animal feed and other high value products. There has been minimal research on the selection of insect populations with desirable traits for use in this emerging industry.
