  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: 19 April 2019
This is a fantastic opportunity to work at the pre-breeding of soft wheat, specifically targeting its processing quality for the bakery sector.

  Cationic antimicrobial peptides as anticancer agents
  Dr R Green, Prof R A Frazier
Applications accepted all year round
Cationic peptides are widespread in nature where they play a key role in host defense within plants and animals. The mechanism by which these peptides interact with cell membranes potentially leads to these being less prone to antimicrobial resistance than conventional antibiotics.
  Ion channel regulation in models of neurodegeneration
  Dr M Dallas, Prof G J Stephens, Dr A Bithell
Applications accepted all year round
Ion channels are important regulators of cellular physiology. There is now growing awareness that these proteins are invovled in pathological states, with relation to neurodegeneration voltage-gated potassium and voltage-gated calicum channels have been implicated.
  Functional Selectivity and the Regulation of Receptor-Activated Signaling Pathways
  Dr G Cottrell, Dr D Widera, Dr S Amadesi, Dr A McNeish
Applications accepted all year round
The molecular mechanisms that regulate receptors and receptor-activated signaling pathways in the cardiovascular and nervous systems are complex.
  The Gut Microbiota and Colorectal Surgery
  Dr M Lewis, Prof S C Andrews
Applications accepted all year round
"Background. Antibiotic use prior to and following colorectal surgery is conventional practice, and is aimed at reducing the incidence of postoperative infection which is a major risk of such surgery.
  Urban Tree for Cooling Cities
  Prof L Shao
Applications accepted all year round
This project aims to gain new and in-depth understanding of urban tree – built environment interactions. It will be carried out in the context of prevention of summer overheating and creation of comfortable outdoor and indoor living environments for city dwellers.
  Applications of Urban Metabolism for Mitigating Resource Demands
  Dr E Mohareb
Applications accepted all year round
In an increasingly urbanized world, cities must continue to drive global economic activity whilst having a minimal impact on their environmental support systems.
  Understanding signalling by a novel hormone receptor in the brain
  Dr N Vasudevan, Prof P G Knight
Application Deadline: 21 April 2019
"Our laboratory is interested in how hormones, in particular oestrogen, signal and how this signal drives social behaviours in animals.
  Investigating the Gut-Brain axis with probiotic interventions to improve neuropsychological function and mental health.
  Dr D Lamport, Dr C Williams, Dr G Walton
Application Deadline: 7 April 2019
Investigations surrounding the gut-brain axis are currently at the forefront of research expanding our understanding of the relationship between nutrition and brain health.
