  Choice architecture: nudging food choice behaviour
  Dr H Ensaff
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Choice architecture, the presentation and framing of a choice and its influence on subsequent decision-making behaviour, is well established.
  (BBSRC DTP) Brain integration and processing of ingestive signals
  Prof S Luckman, Dr G D'Agostino
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

After meal consumption, the brain evaluates the value of its contents and relays this information via neuronal circuits connecting the periphery with the brain (1,2).
  Understanding mealtime: are an individual’s attitudes to meal composition predictive of what they eat and is this an effective target for dietary advice?

  Effect of dietary vitamin B supplementation on brain neural activity
  Prof Y Zheng, Prof C Williams
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Numerous studies have demonstrated the importance of vitamins B6, B12 and folate, for optimal physiological and neurological functioning.
  Using CRISPR genome editing to determine the effects of obesity and hypertension associated polymorphisms
  Dr A MacKenzie, Prof M Delibegovic
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Introduction. There is now little doubt that morbid conditions such as obesity, cardiovascular disease and diabetes are mechanistically linked.
  Developmental Responses to Environmental Change
  Dr C Mirth
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The environment in which animals develop profoundly shapes their morphology and behaviour, a process known as phenotypic plasticity.
  How does amino acid metabolism affect tumour growth?
  Dr L. Cheng
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The effect of diet on tumour growth is hotly debated but poorly characterized. Due to the heterogeneous nature of the tumours, dietary studies in patients with varied genetic background often led to inconclusive outcome.
  (BBSRC DTP) Understanding the contribution of dietary extracellular vesicles to healthy human development
  Prof M Westwood, Dr L Harris, Prof A Nicolaou, Dr A Stevens
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ability to adapt behaviour in response to nutrient availability is important for all cells but particularly so for trophoblasts, as these cells form the placenta - the interface between mother and fetus - and act as fetal sentinels of the maternal environment.
  Economic and environmental efficiency of food redistribution
  Dr P Alexander
Application Deadline: 9 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Summary. The project will identify drivers of change to and map the UK food redistribution system, assess its economic and environmental efficiency, and design optimal alternative food redistribution systems.

  Older adults’ food choice and dietary intake
  Dr H Ensaff
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The UK’s ageing demographic brings social and economic challenges, particularly related to the healthcare of the growing older population.
  Nutrition and Health of Young Adults - A Self Funded PhD
  Dr C Macdonald-Clarke, Dr M Jackson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Young adults are an often overlooked population with regards to health monitoring and intervention. However, research suggests that emerging adulthood is a critical window during which lifestyle habits are formed and continue into older adulthood.
