shaping migration trajectories and integration experiences for economic
migrants and refugees. Current political, economic and social developments
globally have introduced a variety of challenges for migrants and organisations

engagement between actors and institutions. We are interested in examining how
commercial and non-commercial organisations, and experiences of work within
workplaces, shape migrants’ integration into the labour market, alongside their
settlement more generally, as well as understanding the distinctive forms of
migrant agency that are brought to bear upon these processes. Moreover, the study
may also account for how other organisations, including civil society bodies,
NGOs and state institutions, impact upon migrants’ entry into work, learning
and development, and their broader adjustment to working in the host society,

Project Title: The effects of ready meal consumption on appetite, satiety and subsequent food intake
Director of Studies and main supervisor: Dr Sarah Hillier
2nd supervisor: Dr Helen Lightowler
Eligibility: Applicants require a good Honours degree (2.1 or equivalent) in Nutrition or related subject. Applicants must have or be eligible for AfN registration as a Registered Associate Nutritionist (ARNutr). Home UK, EU only are eligible to apply.
In the last year alone, UK consumers have spent over £1.6 billion on supermarket ready meals. Statistica Consumer Goods predicts a market value growth in the ready meal industry of 19.5% between the years 2015-2019. Previous research investigating the composition of supermarket ready meals has found them to be high in protein, fat, saturated fat, whilst low in carbohydrates. As current NHS guidelines on weight management highlight decreasing fat intake, especially saturated fat, it is important to develop products that align more with NHS guidelines, whilst keeping consumers satiated and satisfied.
This project aims to explore the scientific principles of satiety and energy density in a new range of commercially available ready meals and is sponsored by Slimming World.
The project will be based in the Centre for Nutrition and Health at Oxford Brookes University. Oxford Brookes Centre for Nutrition and Health undertakes leading edge research focused on tackling overweight and obesity, improving glycaemic control and reducing inflammation, thereby helping to improve the health and well-being of the global population. https://www.brookes.ac.uk/shssw/nutrition/research/oxbcnh/
