  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 protein hydrolysates to generate high protein foods acceptable to older adults
  Dr M Dermiki, Dr O Kenny, Dr T Smyth
Application Deadline: 30 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The world population nowadays is ageing at a fast rate resulting in a shift towards higher numbers of people older than 65 years old.
  Using food product waste streams as a sustainable source of natural components capable of enhancing the efficacy of antibiotics against resistant bacteria
  Dr O Kenny, Dr T Smyth
Application Deadline: 21 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The continual emergence of antibiotic resistant organisms represents one of the greatest modern day challenges to mankind. The increased incidences of resistant strains, particularly in healthcare settings, often results in the prolonged treatment of patients.
  Optimisation of Industrial Food Production using Ultraviolet Fluorescence
  Dr EB Woolley, Dr P Webb
Application Deadline: 2 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Food manufacturing is the largest and one of the most resource intensive sectors in the world. Within this industry, cleaning of food processing equipment is a critical operation to control safety, cross contamination of allergens and maintain food quality.
  Defining diets to treat inborn errors of metabolism
  Dr T Johnson, Dr M Piper
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fully funded PhD scholarships are available for both Australian and international students through the School of Biological Sciences and Monash University.
  High Pressure Enzymology
  Dr L Schneider
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pressure (up to 400 bar) significantly alters the thermal stability and kinetics of enzyme reactions.
  Integrative approach to valorise vegetable waste
  Dr M Oruna-Concha, Assoc Prof P Jauregi, Dr L Methven
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The FAO estimates that around one third of all food produced worldwide is not consumed, which represents around 1.3 billion tons per year, and is wasted throughout the whole food chain, from farmers to consumers.
  Investigation of structure-activity relationship of ACE inhibitory peptides derived from food proteins
  Assoc Prof P Jauregi, Prof K A Watson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Milk proteins are a rich source of bioactive peptides with a range of apparent biological activities, eg. antihypertensive, antioxidant and antimicrobial.
  Modulation of fortified foods for older adults
  Dr L Methven, Dr S Lignou
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Protein requirements increase with age as protein can help minimise sarcopenia and improve immunity. However protein fortified foods are often poorly accepted by older adults and can lead to numerous negative sensory attributes.
  Structure-function relationships governing polyphenol bioactivity with respect to plasma membranes
  Prof R A Frazier, Dr R Green
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to investigate polyphenol binding to lipid membrane surfaces with a view to understanding how polyphenol structure and aggregation within the gastrointestinal tract (GIT) affects the bioavailability of these nutraceuticals.
