  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: 26 July 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.
  Turning the tide on saline driven soil degradation: can root iron plaques improve the tolerance of rice to salinity stress?
  Dr P Williams, Dr G Norton
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project will be supervised by Dr Paul Williams of Queen’s University School of Biological Sciences and by Dr Gareth Norton of the University of Aberdeen’s School of Biological Sciences.
  Reduction of iron oxide by carbon and gas in a novel low carbon, low energy alternative ironmaking process
  Research Group: Steels Processing
  Dr Z Li
Applications accepted all year round
An exciting opportunity to work as part of our Advanced Steel Research Centre at WMG, University of Warwick, an internationally leading centre for steel research.
  Copper speciation and its impact on iron cycling
  Dr P Salaun, Dr A Tagliabue
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Motivation and wider context. Copper is a micronutrient required in a number of cellular processes that are key for phytoplankton growth [1].
  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.
  The road to personalised anticancer therapy : utilising the LAT-1 transporter as a selective means for iron deprivation (ref: SF18/APP/Veuger)
  Dr S Veuger
Applications accepted all year round
Recent statistics show that 1:2 people in the UK will develop cancer during their life. Of particular interest are new therapeutics that potentially allow a specific focus on tumours that are aggressive, metastatic and associated with poor prognosis.
  Iron-Oxide-Copper-Gold mineralisation in the Zambezi and Lufilian belts of Zambia: part of a major polymetallic magmatic-metallogenic province?
  Dr DA Holwell, Dr A Miles
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Iron-Oxide-Copper-Gold (IOCG) deposits are a diverse and complex type of hydrothermal ore systems that are the focus of much current scientific research in economic geology.
  Influence of hybrid nanoparticle architecture on theranostic abilities in pancreatic cancer
  Dr C Hoskins
Application Deadline: 18 May 2019
We are looking to recruit a PhD student with a relevant chemical, biomedical science or bioengineering background to design and develop novel nanomedicine platforms for chemotherapy.
  Understanding the role of clay mineral redox reactions for metal contaminant fate
  Dr A Neumann
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project is part of the ONE Planet DTP. Find out more here. https://research.ncl.ac.uk/one-planet/. Anthropogenic actitivies have in the past and continue today to pollute water and terrestrial ecosystems with metal contaminants.
