  Listeria monocytogenes in food supply chains – the persistent pathogen (Ref: SF20/APP/FOX)
  Dr E Fox
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The foodborne pathogen Listeria monocytogenes is an important contaminant of food products and associated supply chains, and has caused significant outbreaks of disease through consumption of contaminated food products.
  Intelligent Dynamic Flood Response and Recovery Strategy (iD-FRe2S) PhD
  Prof M Rivas Casado, Dr Y Bajón Fernández
Application Deadline: 15 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Flood recovery response in urban areas depends on the type of flood (e.g., pluvial, fluvial, groundwater) and the type of water (i.e., clean, grey or black water) affecting the area.
  FoodBioSystems DTP - Using organic fertilisers to manipulate soil microbiology for improved nutrient bioavailability
  Dr M Pawlett, Dr T Sizmur, Dr E J Shaw, Prof J Harris
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. Soils are essential to food production through the delivery of bioavailable nutrients required for crop growth.
  Biomaterials for design - utilising fungi to develop a thick mat-like mycelium for use as an alternative textile - SACI0008
  Dr S Vettese, Prof I Singleton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

PROJECT DESCRIPTION. The textile industry is based largely on the use of cotton, leather and oil derived polymers and these industries are resource intensive and unsustainable.
  Nanoparticle conjugates for agricultural disease detection and diagnosis
  Dr L Wong, Prof J Micklefield
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Infectious diseases in plant crops present a significant socioeconomic burden globally, as they compromise the safety and reliability of food supply, as well as other agricultural products.
  Tackling the fungal threat to global food security
  Prof S Avery, Dr M Brock
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fungi cause diseases of crops and spoilage of foods that cause losses of up to a third of food yield. This is a major global challenge given the world’s growing population and need for more food, while climate change is predicted to limit food supply in the future.
  Iron Biology
  Prof H Drakesmith, Dr O Bannard
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We study how iron and anaemia influence immunity and infectious diseases. Our research inspires therapies that control iron physiology to improve immunity, combat infections and treat disorders of iron metabolism.

  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.
  Real Time Detection and Management of Antimicrobial Residues in Milk
  Dr A Ward
Application Deadline: 30 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial drugs, such as antibiotics, are widely used in farming to treat a range of diseases caused by microorganisms. On dairy farms, there is a high risk that milk contaminated with antimicrobial residues contaminates the bulk storage tank and therefore milk destined for commercial use.
