  FoodBioSystems DTP - Predicting the ripening behaviour of mango fruit through an understanding of the progression of ripening events
  Dr M Alamar, Dr M Chadwick, Dr S Kourmpetli, Prof L A Terry
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. Mangoes (Magnifera indica L.) are the second most consumed tropical fruit in the UK, with imports consistently rising during the last five years.
  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.
  FoodBioSystems DTP - Reducing seed loss and waste in umbelliferous crops
  Dr S Kourmpetli, Dr L Bell
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. Umbelliferae species flower and set seed over a period of about 6 weeks depending on weather conditions.
  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.
  Soma-Germline communication and the role of cortical polarity in signalling regulation during Drosophila spermatogenesis
  Dr F Papagiannouli
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Stem cells are critical for multi-cellular development, since they supply the cells that build up our bodies and replenish, as we age, worn out, damaged, and diseased tissues.
  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.
  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.
  Nanophotonics with molecular beam epitaxy of semiconductor (In, Ga, Al)N nanowires heterostructures
  Prof B Ooi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

KAUST photonics laboratory performs semiconductor device physics and optoelectronic device research as a lively symbiosis of optics and materials science.
  Local gene drives for mosquitoes
  Dr M Anderson, Dr R Noad, Prof L Alphey
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD studentship funded by The Pirbright Institute is available to highly motivated students interested in genetic control of mosquitoes.
  Understanding the importance of the PI3K pathway in modulating influenza virus replication in chickens and ducks
  Dr H Shelton, Dr S Dunham
Application Deadline: 9 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Avian influenza virus (AIV) is a pathogen that causes significant economic and welfare issues for the poultry industry. In addition, there is the additional concern that avian influenza strains may be able to cross the species barrier and infect humans.
  Enzyme mechanism through advanced techniques
  Dr P C E Moody
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This studentship is for up to 4 years and supported by a Royal Society Wolfson Fellowship. “Traditional” protein X-ray crystallography has contributed enormously to our understanding of enzyme mechanisms.
