  GW4 FRESH CDT PhD Studentship - Talking algae: an early warning system for water quality threats
  Dr P Rocha
Application Deadline: 17 December 2018
This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Centre for Doctoral Training in Freshwater Biosciences and Sustainability (GW4 FRESH CDT) which is offering 12 studentships for entry in September/October 2019.
  DTC BIO 14 - Photosynthetic regulation in the red algae Porphyridium cruentum.
  Dr C Llewellyn
Applications accepted all year round
Algae live in dynamic environment and have the capacity to regulate photosynthesis and photoregulation accordingly. Red algae are of particular interest because in addition to photosystems I and II they contain phycobilisomes.
  Engineering a water retention system for plants based on novel polysaccharide sulfotransferases from red algae
  Dr E A Yates
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Effective water use is a major challenge for agriculture. In is this project we will investigate new routes for water capture and retention by engineering soil microorganisms and plants to produce sulphated polysaccharides that are similar to those from red algae.
  Blooming blanket weed: managing nuisance algae in National Trust water bodies
  Dr S McGowan
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
We are seeking a student with a love of fresh waters, algae and experimental ecology to study the problems of nuisance blanket weed blooms in UK water bodies.
  Filamentous algae nutrient scrubbers for agricultural runoff
  Dr Rebecca Lawton, Dr Rupert Craggs
Application Deadline: 14 January 2019
The National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (NIWA) and the University of Waikato (UoW) through the joint Institute for Freshwater Management (Te Waiora), in association with Lincoln Agritech and Aqualinc Research have established a new research programme to develop novel approaches for treatment of diffuse pollution from agriculture.
  Using synthetic biology to develop natural sunscreen compounds from algae
  Prof M X Caddick
Applications accepted all year round
The project will employ synthetic biology to investigate, manipulate and optimise production of Mycosporine-like Amino Acids (MAAs).
  BBSRC DTP White Rose Studentship - Super-resolution video rate imaging of photosynthetic membrane dynamics in plants and algae
  Dr M Johnson, Dr A Cadby
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Remarkable images of the internal workings of plant chloroplasts and algae provided by structured illumination microscopy suggest a major role for photosynthetic membrane morphological changes in the adaptation to changing light intensity.
  The rise of the Mesozoic carbonate factory
  Dr F Nudelman
Application Deadline: 10 January 2019
Supervisors. Fabio Nudelman (Chemistry, University of Edinburgh, UK; [email protected]); Rachel Wood (GeoSciences, University of Edinburgh, UK); Rosalind Rickaby (Oxford University, UK) and Susannah Porter (University of California, Santa Barbara, USA).
  The agri-diagnostic characterisation of algal cell walls for food and biotechnology use
  Dr J.H. Bothwell
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
The overarching aim of this studentship is to characterise how environmental driven cell wall modifications affect the digestibility of edible seaweeds, a novel and promising food source.
