  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: From bench to bedside; using patient-based assays that model the gut microbiome-host interface to aid diagnosis and inform treatment of immune dysregulation
  Dr R Payne, Prof S Hambleton, Dr C Stewart
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Immune dysregulation and impaired gut mucosal barrier function are intimately linked features of two paediatric inflammatory gut disorders; namely graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) and necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC).
  The relationship between dietary iron and zinc, and the gut microbiota: Can dietary iron and zinc regime be exploited to improve health?
  Prof S C Andrews
Applications accepted all year round
"The gut microbiota (100 trillion cells) outnumber human cells by 10 to 1. Its composition of around 500 to 1000 species is specific for each individual and is dynamic, changing with age, health and diet.
  Gut microbiota and atherosclerosis: a bacterial perspective
  Dr Y Chen, Dr E Jameson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Research in the past two decades has now convincingly demonstrated that humans are “super-organisms”. We coexist with trillions of microorganisms, collectively termed the microbiota.
  Plant fibre degradation by the human and animal gut microbiota
  Dr D Bolam
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
The gut microbiota of many mammals, including humans and farmed animals, plays a critical role in the digestion of plant polysaccharides (often called dietary fibre) from crops and the products of this anaerobic fermentation provide major health benefits to the host.
  Investigating nerve:immune cell cross talk during gut inflammation
  Dr J Pennock, Prof A MacDonald
Applications accepted all year round
The gut contains more nerves than any other part of the body outside the brain. These nerves contribute to pain responses and essential muscle movement, but their role during inflammation is not known.
  Development of a novel 3D gut-microbiota model for the assessment of absorption and metabolism of health supplements and therapeutic drugs
  Dr P Ragazzon
Application Deadline: 10 December 2019
The gut epithelium is a complex setting of intestinal cells and epithelial cells filled with transporters, enzymes and channels; these cells are then populated by bacteria (microbiota) that help with the metabolism of nutrients and transport into the blood stream.
  Gut leucocytes as a screen for the health impact of functional feeds
  Prof C J Secombes, Prof S Martin
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
This PhD position builds upon past collaborations in PhD student supervision between the Scottish Fish Immunology Research Centre (SFIRC) at the University of Aberdeen and Skretting, a global leader in feed for aquaculture.
  Wild Biome: interactions between gut microbiota and parasites
  Dr S Perkins, Dr J Lello
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
In terms of numbers of cells, we are more bacteria than we are human, and the trillions of bacteria that inhabit our gut (our ‘microbiota’) are vital for biological processes and affect many aspects of health.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Investigating microbiome–host interactions in the preterm gut using metagenomics and stem-cell derived enteroid “mini guts”
  Dr C Stewart, Dr J Kirby, Dr C Lamb
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Preterm infants born. This project seeks to extensively characterise the preterm gut microbiome and to subsequently investigate how bacteria and preterm gut epithelial cells interact.
  Dynamics, function and influence of gut microbiome in pesticides resistance
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr L Orsini, Prof J B Brown, Dr S Hayward
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Background. The development of insecticide resistance is a worldwide concern and elucidating the underlying mechanisms is critical for effective crop protection and human health.
