  How do smallholder farmers’ climate change adaptations impact upon local food safety and nutrition in Africa?
  Prof L Stringer, Prof Y Gong
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

There are approximately 33 million smallholder farms in sub-Saharan Africa, representing 80% of the region’s farms. Climate change has increasingly been highlighted as a major threat to smallholder production and food security, both globally and at the local scale.
  Hydro-dynamic modelling of malaria environmental suitability
  Dr M Smith, Dr M Trigg
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Full Supervision Team. Mark Smith (SoG), Tom Willis (SoG), Mark Trigg (Civ Eng) and Chris Thomas (Uni. Lincoln).
  Managing complexity and uncertainty in the transition to net-zero energy systems
  Dr C Bale, Dr K Roelich
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In June 2019, the UK committed to a legally-binding target to bring all greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050. This provides a hugely challenging, yet necessary goal to radically and rapidly decarbonise the UK’s energy systems.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Systems-level understanding of calcium dynamics in cardiac cells, and functional effects of their modification in heart failure
  Dr M.A. Colman, Dr A.P. Benson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The mechanical function of the heart is driven by electrical activity through the process of excitation-contraction coupling. Intracellular calcium (Ca2+) signalling is a critical component of this coupling.
  Conservation genomics of bumble bees (CENTA2-GENE4-HAMM)
  Dr R Hammond, Dr S Beleza
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bumble bees are a diverse group of key pollinators that suffer from the negative impact of anthropogenic change. This results in declining and fragmented populations that impacts on the bees themselves and so on the wild flowers and crops that they pollinate [2].
  Neuronal and biomechanical mechanisms underlying the control and plasticity of aimed limb movements
  Dr T Matheson, Dr R Swidbert
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most animal movements are driven by muscle contractions controlled by the nervous system, but there is now considerable evidence that passive forces, originating in muscles, tendons or other tissues, interact with active forces to generate limb movements in both vertebrates and invertebrates (Page et al.
  The effects of cannabinoids on pre- and post-synaptic activity during learning
  Prof N Hartell, Dr M Hamann
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

General Background. Learning and adaptation of behaviour requires long-term changes in the strength of synaptic transmission that in turn lead to alterations in the patterns of neuronal firing.
  Protein kinases and nitric oxide in the stealthy survival of Mycobacterium tuberculosis
  Dr G Mukamolova, Dr H O’Hare
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tuberculosis remains a major global threat as it affects humans and production animals. Mycobacterium tuberculosis and Mycobacterium bovis, the causative agents of tuberculosis in human and animals, are highly successful pathogens which have sophisticated mechanisms for adaptation to hostile conditions.
  Bringing machine learning techniques to geophysical data processing
  Dr L Uieda, Dr S De Angelis
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gravity and magnetic surveys offer a cost-effective method for investigating sedimentary basins, mineral deposits, active tectonics in the oceans, and overall crustal structure.
  Fishing in hot water: are the ecological impacts of trawling exacerbated by climate change?
  Dr L Robinson, Dr M Spencer
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Proactive fisheries management requires understanding of ecological consequences of trawling in warmer seas. While the impacts of bottom trawling and climate change are increasingly well-documented, little is known about how these pressures interact.
