  Development and integration of hygienic and novel processing sensors for detection and monitoring of macro and micro compositional constituents of incoming milk in a dairy plant.
  Dr U McCarthy, Dr I Casey
Application Deadline: 12 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Post summary. Digitisation of the food production sector is lagging in comparison to other industry sectors. The “digitisation” of a dairy plant involves using sensors, smart data capture systems and a clear presentation of the information that is beneficial for the optimal running of a dairy process.
  Bacteriophage role in the establishment of preterm infants’ gut microbiota (Ref: SF20/APP/SMITH3)
  Dr D Smith
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Survival of very preterm infants has increased over the last 20 years, but late onset sepsis (LOS) and necrotising enterocolitis (NEC) remain a major cause of death and ongoing developmental problems in this population.
  The role of the rumen microbiome in detoxifying forage mycotoxins and improving dairy cow health and welfare
  Prof L A Sinclair
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project aim. To determine the effect of the rumen microbiome in detoxifying mycotoxins in grass silage when fed to dairy cows.
  Investigation of structure-activity relationship of ACE inhibitory peptides derived from food proteins
  Assoc Prof P Jauregi, Prof K A Watson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Milk proteins are a rich source of bioactive peptides with a range of apparent biological activities, eg. antihypertensive, antioxidant and antimicrobial.
  A Critical Application of Branding to Promote Breastfeeding in Public in the UK
  Dr C Hirst, Dr C Morris
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The health benefits of breastfeeding are well established for mothers and babies alike and the World Health Organisation recommends exclusive breastfeeding for 6 months (Blincoe, 2005).
  Doctor of Philosophy (PhD): Photonic Sensors for Measuring Green House Gas Emissions in Dairy and Arable Production: Sustainable Precision Agriculture (University of Strathclyde and SRUC Barony Campus)
  Research Group: CDT in Applied Photonics
  Prof D Reid, Prof C Michie
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The global population is predicted to reach 9 Billion by 2050. As a consequence, increasing competition for land resource against a backdrop of climate change agricultural practices are presenting farmers with a range of challenges to improve operational efficiency and reduce greenhouse emissions.
  New NMR methods for complex mixture analysis
  Prof M Nilsson, Prof GA Morris
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited from students with independent funding for PhD research in the development and application of novel methods in NMR spectroscopy.
  Mass spectrometry analysis of human tissue to characterise cleavage events resulting in amyloid deposition associated with aortic aneurysm and dissection
  Dr J Madine, Prof C E Eyers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The most common form of localised amyloid occurs in the aorta (aortic medial amyloid; AMA) and is estimated to occur in 97% of Caucasian people over 50.
  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

Funding Type

PhD Type

"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.
  Using psychology to tackle the problem of waste plastic
  Dr C Wood, Dr T Webb
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Waste plastic can have a devastating effect on the environment, threatening the biodiversity of our oceans and introducing micro-plastics into the food chain.
  wave-type solutions of reaction-diffusion equations
  Dr C Geldhauser
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Partial differential equations (PDEs) model numerous phenomena from physics, biology, and our daily life; we may even model the distribution of milk in our morning coffee by a convection-diffusion PDE.
