  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.
  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.
  Campylobacter genomics: host specific phenotypes and antibiotic resistance in the farmyard
  Dr S MacIntyre
Applications accepted all year round
Campylobacteriosis is the primary cause of bacterial induced gastroenteritis in the UK. Contaminated retail poultry and meat is recognised as a primary source of infection.
  Forensic acarology: the importance of mites in forensic investigations
  Dr M A Perotti
Applications accepted all year round
Forensic acarology. the utility/contribution of mites in criminal investigations, in illegal trade, in cases of human and animal neglect, etc.
  Interactions between introduced tree species and native mycorrhizal fungi in the UK
  Dr BJ Pickles
Applications accepted all year round
"Mycorrhizal symbioses are one of the most extensive and important biotic interactions in terrestrial ecosystems, typically providing plants with improved access to nutrients in exchange for carbohydrates produced via photosynthesis.
  Investigating the molecular basis of bacterial pathogenicity of invertebrates
  Prof R W Jackson
Applications accepted all year round
Pseudomonas syringae bacteria are common within the environment and can infect a wide range of plant species. These bacteria employ a diverse arsenal of virulence factors to attack plants.
  Protein engineering enzymes for Industry.
  Prof K A Watson
Applications accepted all year round
We are interested in key features of protein sequence - structure - function relationship, and how this information can be translated to health.
  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
"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.
  Understanding Xylella fastidiosa, a globally challenging plant pathogen - studies in pathogenicity and population genomics
  Prof R W Jackson
Applications accepted all year round
This is an exciting PhD opportunity working with the University of Reading. It will focus on applying advanced sequencing technologies and population genomics to understand a globally challenging plant pathogen that currently threatens worldwide horticulture.
  Microencapsulated probiotics for oral delivery
  Prof V Khutoryanskiy, Dr D Charalampopoulos
Applications accepted all year round
Probiotics are live bacteria that reside in human intestinal tract and provide numerous beneficial effects. Oral delivery of probiotics is viewed as an efficient therapeutic strategy to improve gut health.
