  Bloomsbury PhD studentship: “Omics” based characterisation of host genetics and gut microbiome composition in relation to pathogen abundance in chickens
  Dr A Psifidi, Prof F Tomley, Dr D Blake, Dr O Gundogdu
Application Deadline: 10 February 2019
Pathogenic microbes limit economic production of poultry, compromise animal welfare and pose a risk to human health. Vaccines are available for some pathogens but are expensive, with limited availability in many countries.
  Causes and consequences of microbiome variation in the water vole Arvicola amphibius
  Prof S Piertney, Dr S Helyar
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Gut microbiomes are increasingly recognised for having a major influence on host health, fitness, reproductive success, development and behaviour.
  (BBSRC DTP) Grazer-induced modifications of plant-soil microbiome associations and their influence on grassland community dynamics and functioning
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Prof R Bardgett, Dr M Semchenko, Prof D Johnson
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
A major challenge facing grassland farmers is the need to maintain, or bolster, essential soil functions that underpin forage production and quality.
  Debugging Lung Disease: Applying mathematical modelling for a precision medicine approach to the Pulmonary Microbiome
  Prof K Tsaneva-Atanasova
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Supervisors. Professor Krasimira Tsaneva-Atanasova,College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences, University of Exeter.
  Carbon sequestration potential of apple rootstocks: the role of root recalcitrance, rhizodeposition, and the rhizosphere microbiome (Ref: CTP_FCR_2019_5)
  Dr F O'Brien, Prof M Tibbett, Prof M Lukac
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
The Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC ) have awarded a Collaborative Training Partnership (CTP) grant to a consortium led by Berry Gardens Growers Ltd and NIAB EMR.
  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.
  Targeting the gut microbiome to prevent human diseases associated with obesity and poor metabolic health
  Prof K Brown, Dr T Yates, Prof J M Ketley
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019
Excess body weight, insulin resistance and inflammation are underlying causes of the metabolic syndrome and greatly increase the risk of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease, which in turn are risk factors for metabolically-driven cancers.
  (BBSRC DTP) Using mathematical models to understand the role of the respiratory microbiome in asthma
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Dr T Gilman, Dr M Muldoon, Prof N Papadopoulos, Prof D Robertson
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Most of the cells in the human body are not human. There are rich microbial communities (i.e., microbiota) in our digestive tracts, our respiratory tracts, and on our skin.
  Elucidating the role of the gastrointestinal microbiome and metabolome in the host immune response to liver fluke infection
  Dr LE Peachey
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Project. Widespread drug resistance threatens the future control of parasite infections in food producing animals, which in turn, constitutes a serious threat to global food security.
  Development and evaluation of new inflammatory biomarkers and the structure and function of the intestinal microbiome in canine chronic enteropathy
  Dr M Watson, Dr S Salavati, Dr G Ho
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019
