  Molecular-genetic analysis of intra- and extra-cellular iron reduction systems in bacteria: role in gut colonisation and utilisation of dietary iron sources.
  Prof S C Andrews
Applications accepted all year round
The innate immune defense systems respond to bacterial infection by reducing the amount of available iron in order to restrict bacterial growth.
  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.
  Iron and Immunity: studying how iron and anaemia influence immunity and infectious diseases
  Prof A Drakesmith, Dr S Draper
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
We study how iron and anaemia influence immunity and infectious diseases. Our research inspires therapies that control iron physiology to improve immunity, combat infections and treat disorders of iron metabolism.
  Ironing out the carbon cycle: Carbon burial associated with iron oxides in Arctic shelf sediments
  Dr C Marz, Prof C.L. Peacock
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
As marine geoscientists, we are interested in the capability of the world’s oceans to sequester atmospheric CO2 into photosynthetic algal biomass, and to ultimately lock it away in seafloor sediments when this biomass dies and sinks to the ocean depths.
  The role of iron storage ferritins in the supply of iron to metalloproteins
  Dr K Waldron
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Approximately one third of all proteins require metal cofactors for function, thus metalloproteins are involved in all biological processes.
  Iron Homeostasis in Bacterial Plant Colonization and Disease
  Dr A Holmes, Dr N Holden, Prof S C Andrews
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Iron is an essential nutrient in all orders of life. Since uptake is hampered by insolubility, plants and bacteria have evolved mechanisms for active sequestration, through the secretion of chelators called siderophores, and uptake via transport mechanisms.
  Iron acquisition using host lactoferrin by the bacterial pathogen Campylobacter jejuni
  Prof J Ketley, Dr J Morrissey
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Campylobacter jejuni is the main cause of bacterial food-borne disease in the UK and is a global public health priority. Infection and transmission are usually linked with contaminated food or water, with chicken being a major source.
  Tracing Iron Sources and Artefacts in Viking-Age Scotland
  Dr S Harrison, Dr J MacDonald
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Project Summary. From the 9th to 11th centuries, small groups of ‘Vikings’ transformed large areas of Northern Europe and the North Atlantic, including Scotland.
  Iron Snow in Planetary Cores
  Dr C Davies, Dr A Walker
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Planetary magnetic fields exhibit remarkable variability in their intensity and spatio-temporal properties. These fields are generated in metallic cores and thus provide a unique probe into the dynamics and evolution of planetary interiors.
  Iron released from Antarctic ice controls the biological carbon pump in the surrounding Southern Ocean (MILNEP19ARIES)
  Dr A Milne
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Scientific background. The Southern Ocean surrounding Antarctica accounts for nearly 40% of the global oceanic sink of anthropogenic carbon dioxide emissions.
