  SCENARIO: Quantifying the flow and nutrient dynamic changes for a major flood relief scheme in the lower River Thames to better manage water quality and aquatic ecology
  Dr M Bowes, Mr M Clegg, Dr S Robinson, Dr M Hutchins
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
The Thames basin is very densely populated, containing one fifth of the UK population. It floods regularly, and climate change projections suggest that flooding will increase over the coming century, with 15,000 homes being at risk of inundation within the lower reaches of the catchment.
  SCENARIO: The impacts of long-term declines in insect abundance on ecosystem function
  Mr D Roy, Prof T Oliver, Prof J Thomas, Dr T Johns
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
The plight of insects has generated worldwide attention from the scientific community and wider public. Recent interest was stimulated by a 27 year study(1) suggesting a loss of 75% in the biomass of flying insects from Protected Areas in Germany, quickly labelled as ‘ecological Armageddon’.
  A Nutrigenetics approach to study gene-diet interactions on Obesity in a Brazilian population
  Dr V Karani, Prof J Lovegrove
Applications accepted all year round
We are seeking a highly motivated candidate for a PhD project that will focus on genetic epidemiology and statistical genetics.
  Biotechnological production microbial lipids rich in gamma-linolenic acid (GLA)
  Dr A Chatzifragkou, Dr D Charalampopoulos
Applications accepted all year round
Linolenic acid (GLA, ω-6 family) is a medicinally and nutritionally important polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) with a broad spectrum of applications, extending from food supplements to anti-cancer formulations.
  Extracellular vesicles in health and disease
  Prof P Yaqoob, Dr D Tannetta
Applications accepted all year round
Endothelial dysfunction (ED) is associated with classical and emerging risk factors of cardiovascular disease (CVD), correlates with disease progression and is an independent predictor of the risk of future cardiovascular events.
  Immune Development in a Piglet Model of Environmental Enteric Dysfunction
  Dr M Lewis, Prof G Gibson
Applications accepted all year round
Summary. Environmental enteric dysfunction (EED) affects 200 million children in low- and middle-income countries and has extremely detrimental consequences for long-term health.
  Integrative approach to valorise vegetable waste
  Dr M Oruna-Concha, Assoc Prof P Jauregi, Dr L Methven
Applications accepted all year round
The FAO estimates that around one third of all food produced worldwide is not consumed, which represents around 1.3 billion tons per year, and is wasted throughout the whole food chain, from farmers to consumers.
  Investigation of structure-activity relationship of ACE inhibitory peptides derived from food proteins
  Assoc Prof P Jauregi, Dr K Jackson
Applications accepted all year round
"Milk proteins are a rich source of bioactive peptides with a range of apparent biological activities, eg. antihypertensive, antioxidant and antimicrobial.
  Modulation of fortified foods for older adults
  Dr L Methven, Dr S Lignou
Applications accepted all year round
Protein requirements increase with age as protein can help minimise sarcopenia and improve immunity. However protein fortified foods are often poorly accepted by older adults and can lead to numerous negative sensory attributes.
  Prebiotics and synbiotics for human health - converting biomass into functional food ingredients
  Prof R Rastall
Applications accepted all year round
Prof. Rastall is interested in research in the area of prebiotic oligosaccharides, synbiotic combinations with probiotics and the impact of structure on the gut fermentation of carbohydrates.
