  Type 1 Resistant Starch: A journey through the gut (EDWARDSQ20CASE)
  Dr C Edwards
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most adults in the UK are overweight or obese, and the food industry are urgently seeking to develop healthier processed foods. One solution is to replace ‘available starch’ in the diet with ‘resistant starch’ that is not digested to glucose in the upper-gut.
  Psyllium fibre: from molecular structure to human health (WARRENQ20DTP)
  Dr F Warren
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Psyllium fibre is an emerging and important source of dietary fibre, used in the treatment of many digestive disorders and extensively in the processing of foods, especially gluten free products.
  Unlocking pulse protein: A new look at mechanisms that limit bioaccessibility (EDWARDSQ20DTP)
  Dr C Edwards
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inadequate protein nutrition is a major health concern to children and the institutionalised elderly. Although animal proteins are the best source of protein nutrition, 76% of the global population currently rely on plant protein.
  A human ’mini-gut-on-a-chip’ to study microbial-epithelial cell interactions (SAEEDU20DTP)
  Dr A Saeed, Dr M R Williams
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human organoids are 3D fragments of adult tissues and ideally conserve all of the (stem) cell types and recapitulate all of the (patho)physiological processes associated with human health and disease.
  Novel building blocks for soft materials based on carbohydrate assemblies (KHIMYAKU20DTP)
  Prof Y Khimyak, Dr J Angulo
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Carbohydrates are widespread in nature and generate soft biomatter that fulfil many important biological functions; they are also exploited as bulk commodities across industry sectors due to their remarkable range of properties.
  Developing Bacterial Nanowires for Light-Driven Catalysis (BUTTU20DTP)
  Prof J Butt, Dr T Clarke
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inspired by natural photosynthesis and addressing limitations of purely synthetic approaches, this PhD project aims to provide proof of principle for light-driven chemical synthesis through the design and assembly of novel inorganic:biological hybrid materials.
  Deep learning for low-light photographing (GONGHU20SF)
  Dr H Gong, Prof G Finlayson
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Have you ever struggled in taking a good photo in low light? Despite the dramatic improvements in camera sensors, photographing in darkness is still challenging because in many conditions, there is simply too little light on the scene and the camera sensors are sensitive to noise in these conditions.
  Synthesis and properties of novel organic macrocycles (CAMMIDGEAU20SF)
  Prof A N Cammidge, Dr I Fernandes
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project will exploit recent advances in the group to investigate new porphyrin-phthalocyanine hybrids and their subsequent assembly into higher-order supermolecules.
  What can atmospheric measurements tell us about how the Atlantic Ocean is responding to climate change? (MANNINGUENV20ARIES)
  Dr A Manning, Dr P Pickers, Prof P Palmer
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The oceans are the world’s most important long-term carbon dioxide (CO2) sink and substantially reduce climate change by sucking up vast amounts of fossil fuel CO2 emissions (~9.3 million tonnes CO2 every year).
  Unravelling the mysteries of air quality above polar snow and ice using the isotopic fingerprints of reactive nitrogen (FREYUBAS20ARIES)
  Dr M Frey, Prof J Kaiser
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND. Climate and environment in polar and high-altitude regions are particularly sensitive to anthropogenic perturbation.
