PhD studentship on Precision Nutrition at the Rowett Institute, University of Aberdeen

The Rowett Institute is looking for an enthusiastic candidate for a BBSRC-funded PhD studentship on "Modelling individual responses to healthier diets - new ways to quantify the importance of physiology and behaviour for successful dietary changes (MI-DIET)" at the Rowett Institute, University of Aberdeen, United Kingdom.
This project will focus on precision nutrition n-of-1 approaches to quantify differences in health responses to specific dietary changes between individuals, and to identify which personal physiologic characteristics and factors determine this variation. The project will also explore the role of psychological and behavioural factors that determine individual responses to short- or long-term consumption of healthier foods as part of an internship at Unilever R&D, Wageningen, The Netherlands.
More information on this project can be found at or by e-mailing Baukje de Roos at The closing date for applications is Friday, May 18, 2018.
