  Understanding and improving care of the older horse
  Dr G Pinchbeck
Application Deadline: 16 December 2018
The life expectancy of our horses and ponies is increasing. Many older horses are still active and retired horses are valued as pets and companions.
  Fluency and Context in Recognition Memory
  Dr J Taylor, Dr D Talmi
Applications accepted all year round
This project relates to a sort of ‘memory illusion’. On a recognition memory test, increasing the perceptual fluency of a test cue increases the likelihood that the word will be endorsed as ‘familiar’, even if it hasn’t been seen in the study phase (and therefore should have been called ‘new’).
  Beam-driven plasma wakefield acceleration at Strathclyde and international collaborators
  Prof B Hidding
Applications accepted all year round
We are on the quest towards 5th generation light sources and ultracompact electron accelerators -- the time-resolved microscopes of the 21st century.
  A pilot study of oral immunotherapy as a treatment to desensitise horses with insect bite hypersensitivity to Culicoides spp
  Dr AD Wilson
Applications accepted all year round
The project. Equine Insect Bite Hypersensitivity (IBH) is a Type I IgE-mediated allergy of horses to salivary proteins of Culicoides spp.
  Bacterial iron uptake pathways as targets for the development of novel antimicrobials
  Dr M Thomas
Applications accepted all year round
Antimicrobial resistance is an ever increasing problem. Presently it is estimated to be responsible for 700,000 deaths p.a. and it is predicted that this figure will rise to 10 million by 2050.
  Environments and the Palaeolithic Cultures of Central Europe

Central Europe has experienced significant environmental changes over the last 500,000 years, which are thought to have significant consequences for the history and evolution of hominin populations over time.
  Chemical cocktails: understanding the combined effects of nanoparticles and pharmaceutical on microbial species and populations.
  Dr I Lynch
Applications accepted all year round
Given that pharmaceuticals and nanomaterials (NMs) used in consumer products such as sunscreens and cosmetics have the same discharge pathways (i.e.
  Tailored mechanical design of biodegradable metallic orthopaedic implant devices
  Dr M Staiger, Dr B Nowak
Applications accepted all year round
Short Project Description. During the last two decades, rigid internal fixation with micro-plates and screws has gained widespread acceptance in the correction of craniomaxillofacial deformities.
  Unpicking a novel plant microbe symbiosis: bacteria as a source of odour in carrion flowers.
  Dr B Raymond, Dr R Griffiths
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Location. University of Exeter, Penryn Campus, Penryn, Cornwall TR10 9FE. This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  Combating Illegal Trade in Animal Products by Rapid On-Site DNA Sequencing
  Prof M A Jobling, Dr C A May
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Illegal trading in animal products is commonplace, widespread and diverse, ranging from trafficking high-value, CITES-protected, endangered species between countries, fraudulent misidentification of by-catch fish filleted at sea (estimated at ~25%), through to substitution of low-value meat from one species into foodstuffs advertised as containing another (e.g.
