  Quantitative Risk Assessment for Food Safety (allergens, microbial pathogens or chemical contaminants)
  Prof N Strachan, Dr F Perez-Reche
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will use computational methods to assess risks. An expectation of the society we live in is that the food that we eat is safe.
  The use of a developed novel adsorbent for sampling of suspects hands for ignitable liquid residues
  Research Group: Forensic & Investigative Sciences Research Group
  Dr S Hall
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. Forensic & Investigative Sciences Research Group - https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-engineering/research/institutes-and-groups/forensic-and-investigative.
  Enhanced bio-minerals production using catalysts to accelerate resource recovery in wastewater treatment plants PhD
  Dr A Soares, Prof T Stephenson
Application Deadline: 13 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD position offers an exciting opportunity to resolve key questions around nutrient resource recovery in waste streams in a project sponsored by EPSRC, Severn Trent and Microvi.
  Development of a novel 3D gut-microbiota model for the assessment of absorption and metabolism of health supplements and therapeutic drugs
  Dr P Ragazzon
Application Deadline: 10 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The gut epithelium is a complex setting of intestinal cells and epithelial cells filled with transporters, enzymes and channels; these cells are then populated by bacteria (microbiota) that help with the metabolism of nutrients and transport into the blood stream.
  Bridging the gap between environment and health – exposure assessment of potentially harmful agents in soil
  Dr P Hooda
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our current understanding of soil exposure in the UK population is extremely limited. The current risk assessment paradigm makes large assumptions based on very uncertain data to estimate direct exposures via soil ingestion or dust inhalation.
  Ensuring chemical safety through toxicity studies in Daphnia using state-of-the-art molecular, imaging and modelling approaches
  Prof M Viant, Dr B Campos, Dr C Rivetti, Dr I Sorrell
Application Deadline: 9 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This exciting 4-year BBSRC iCASE PhD opportunity bridges the University of Birmingham’s (*) metabolomics team and Unilever’s Safety and Environmental Assurance Centre (SEAC), both having state-of-the-art facilities and renowned research programmes, thereby creating an excellent environment for this challenging yet impactful research project.
  Microplastics as conduits of flame retardants in birds feeding on landfills
  Dr M Abdallah, Dr S J Reynolds
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is increasing evidence of widespread ingestion of plastics by birds, mistaking it for food, during foraging. The demonstrated effects of plastic ingestion by birds include.
  Discovery and Development of Biocatalytic Solutions to Mitigate Microplastic Pollution
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr T Swift, Dr R Hamed, Dr U Sivarajah
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plastic contamination is a great ecological disaster facing modern society; a burden overwhelmingly heaped on the least economically developed countries.
  (MRC CASE) The haemoglobin adductome as a biomarker of disease onset and progression in obese patients.
  Dr A Povey, Prof G Margison, Dr H Soran
Application Deadline: 14 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Obesity increases the risk of many diseases including cancer and diabetes and though many obesity risk factors have been identified, environmental factors are increasingly recognised as determinants of disease onset and progression and are potentially modifiable by lifestyle choices or changes in diet1.
  Optimising Drug Delivery to Targets within the Spleen by Understanding the Relationship Between Drug Structure and Drug Disposition
  Dr S Paine, Dr J Kaler
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The spleen is a key target organ for immunotherapy as it contains a high concentration of lymphocytes and macrophages. Drug interaction with these two cell types may have implications both in terms of therapeutic or toxic activity and in terms of drug disposition.
