  Diet and mTor signaling in ageing-related neurodegenerative disease
  Dr M J P Simons, Dr S Sweeney
Applications accepted all year round
Reducing food intake robustly increases lifespan in model organisms. When this data is extrapolated to humans, the predicted gain in healthy lifespan beats curing all stroke, diabetes, cancer and cardiac disease.
  Novel methods for modelling lifecourse diet from preconception to childhood in the Southampton Women’s Survey
  Dr S Crozier
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Lead Institute / Faculty. MRC Lifecourse Epidemiology Unit. Main Supervisor. Sarah Crozier. Other members of the supervisory team.
  The influence of a low carbohydrate high fat diet on exercise and performance
  Dr O Spendiff
Applications accepted all year round
Current and long standing nutrition guidance in the UK and most other countries advocate that carbohydrates are essential for the maintenance of health and especially for any individual engaging in regular physical activity or sport performance.
  Investigating the relationship between diet and healthy brain ageing
  Research Group: Centre for Public Health
  Dr C McEvoy, Prof J Woodside
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019
Dementia is a major global public health priority. Accumulating data suggests a role for diet in cognitive decline and dementia, but evidence is limited.
  PhD Studentships in Public Health Research (Diet and Physical Activity) University of Cambridge
PhD Studentships in Public Health Research (Diet and Physical Activity). University of Cambridge. Opportunities for PhD studentships are available at the Centre for Diet and Activity Research (CEDAR) and MRC Epidemiology Unit at the University of Cambridge.
  You are what you eat: diet, cooperation and fitness in a tropical island bird
  Prof T A Burke, Dr M J P Simons
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
In our study of a complete population of the Seychelles warbler, a cooperatively breeding insectivorous bird, we have measured the helping behaviour and fitness parameters of every individual.
  Cascading effects of fisheries policy through seabird communities and the terrestrial environment (Supervisors: Prof D Johnson, Prof L Gilbert and Dr M Spencer)
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Prof D Johnson
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
Changes in coastal management, such as fisheries, may alter terrestrial processes through biological vectors, such as inland-nesting seabirds and waders that transfer coastal-derived nutrients.
  Impact of diet on cardiovascular responses to acute mental stress
  Dr C Rendeiro, Dr JJCS Veldhuijzen van Zanten
Applications accepted all year round
Cardiovascular diseases remain the second cause of premature death in the UK. In particular, mental stress is a known important contributing factor to mechanisms underlying cardiovascular events, with mounting evidence suggesting that mental stress can negatively affect human endothelial function (Poitras et al., 2013).
  A Nutrigenetics approach to study gene-diet interactions on Obesity in a Brazilian population
  Dr V Karani, Prof J Lovegrove
Applications accepted all year round
We are seeking a highly motivated candidate for a PhD project that will focus on genetic epidemiology and statistical genetics.
  Human liver fat metabolism and metabolic disease: Understanding the underlying causes and mechanistic basis for intrahepatic fat storage to identify ways of preventing and treating fatty liver disease.
  Prof L Hodson, Dr K Pinnick, Dr S Parry
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Understanding the underlying causes and mechanistic basis for intrahepatic fat storage to identify ways of preventing and treating fatty liver disease.
