Microbial Modelling

In partnership with the Rowett Institute and the University of Edinburgh we offer a fully-funded PhD studentship as part of a project which aims to investigate the fermentation of a range of materials by the human gut microbiota with a view towards developing health-promoting food ingredients. The source materials would ideally originate from renewable sources or waste products to reduce emissions and achieve sustainable production of the novel ingredients.

This PhD is available to UK and European students only. Potential applicants should email the supervisors Dr Petra Louis or Dr Helen Kettle for further information.
