  Development of a novel 3D gut-microbiota model for the assessment of absorption and metabolism of health supplements and therapeutic drugs
  Dr P Ragazzon
Application Deadline: 10 December 2019
The gut epithelium is a complex setting of intestinal cells and epithelial cells filled with transporters, enzymes and channels; these cells are then populated by bacteria (microbiota) that help with the metabolism of nutrients and transport into the blood stream.
  Bridging the gap between environment and health – exposure assessment of potentially harmful agents in soil
  Dr P Hooda
Applications accepted all year round
Our current understanding of soil exposure in the UK population is extremely limited. The current risk assessment paradigm makes large assumptions based on very uncertain data to estimate direct exposures via soil ingestion or dust inhalation.
  Assessment of nanomaterial toxicity using alternative, non-rodent models
  Dr H Johnston
Application Deadline: 8 February 2019
The PhD will employ complex 3D in vitro or zebrafish embryo models to assess the toxicity of nanomaterials of varied physico-chemical properties to investigate impacts on the lung, immune system or intestine.
  Profiling of gunshot and explosive residues: development of next-generation analytical and chemometric tools for enhancing possibilities in forensic science (RDF19/HLS/AS/GALLIDABINO)
  Dr M Gallidabino
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Residues of energetic materials, such as gunshot residues and explosives, are common forensic evidence types that assist the investigation of shooting and/or bombing events.
  DTC BIO 13 - Can diet influence natural UV protection?
  Dr C Llewellyn
Applications accepted all year round
Over the past two decades the zebrafish (Danio rerio) has become an important human model in the fields of genetics, toxicology and developmental biology to study a range of human diseases.
  Integrating omics, imaging and informatics to develop physiology-based kinetic (PBK) models for perturbation biology in an invertebrate model species
  Prof M Viant, Dr B Campos, Dr C Rivetti, Dr I Sorrell
Application Deadline: 4 February 2019
This exciting 4-year BBSRC iCASE PhD opportunity bridges the University of Birmingham’s (*) metabolomics team and Unilever’s Safety and Environmental Assurance Centre (SEAC), both having state-of-the-art facilities and renowned research programmes, thereby creating an excellent environment for this challenging yet impactful research project.
  Electrophysiological changes in ion channels in human haploid and diploid (spermatozoa and lymphocytes) after nanoparticle exposure
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr L Shang, Dr M H Brinkworth, Prof D Anderson
Applications accepted all year round
Nanomaterial-mediated delivery represents a promising technique for repro- and geno- toxicology with a potential to improve the safety and efficacy of existing methodologies, including experimental gene therapy and sperm-mediated gene transfer.
  Miniaturised microfluidic technology to probe the fundamentals of heterogeneous ice nucleation
  Dr B J Murray, Dr J Shim
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The heterogeneous nucleation of ice is a critical process in fields as diverse as cryopreservation through to atmospheric cloud formation, yet it is extremely poorly understood.

  Big computations and big data = robust results?
  Dr J P Gosling
Applications accepted all year round
Analyses involving large quantities of data or complicated computer models are the norm nowadays across most of science. These analyses can be computationally expensive and require many assumptions to make them feasible in a reasonable amount of time.
