  Evaluating the prebiotic influence of selected herbs
  Prof G Gibson, Dr G Walton
Application Deadline: 30 July 2019

Funding Type

"Prebiotics are dietary carbohydrates, and possibly polyphenols, that are resistant to upper gut hydrolysis and enter the human large intestine intact.
  Maximising the efficacy of polyphenols on cardiovacular health
  Dr C Mills
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cardiovascular diseases are the worlds’ leading cause of death. Dietary approaches to prevent or treat these diseases are becoming increasingly accepted.
  Understanding protein impact on soft wheat flour functionality: identification of protein markers for soft wheat breeding.
  Dr P Tosi, Prof D O'Sullivan
Application Deadline: 28 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Milling wheat is categorised into two commercial classes, soft and hard, according to the milling energy required to produce the flour.

  Accelerating molecular phylogenetic inference using high performance computing.
  Dr A Meade
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Molecular phylogenetic inference, constructing evolutionary histories from molecular data, is an activity universal to all biological disciplines.
  Bioinformatics studies of protein structures, functions and their interactions
  Dr L J McGuffin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The computational study of protein structures, functions and their interactions is fundamental to our understanding of disease.
  Biological role of neurooestrogens in behaviour
  Dr N Vasudevan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our laboratory primarily investigates animal behaviour through the lens of neuroendocrinology i.e. hormones. We are interested in non-classical ways in which hormones may act to regulate behaviours.
  Biological role of neuropeptides and their receptors
  Dr L Lander
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Cell signalling is critical to the co-ordination and functioning of all cells. Cell signalling allows cells to co-ordinate activities within the intracellular environment as well as ensuring cells know how to correctly respond to other cells and to an ever-changing extracellular environment as well.
  Biological role of Stress Hormones
  Dr A B Bicknell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

OVERVIEW. Our lab focuses on the biological roles of peptide hormones derived from pro-opiomelanocortin (POMC), a protein produced in the anterior pituitary gland.
  Campylobacter genomics: host specific phenotypes and antibiotic resistance in the farmyard
  Dr S MacIntyre
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
