  Designing a microbial platform for the biorefinery of Sargassum (brown algae) golden tides
  Dr T Tonon, Prof S J McQueen-Mason
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Oceans are the largest untapped growth opportunity for biomass. As an. illustration, golden tides due to the massive beaching of floating Sargassum.
  Cascading effects of micro- and nano-plastics on lipid quality and transfer through freshwater planktonic ecosystems
  Dr IA Guschina, Prof S Ormerod
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite growing global concern about the occurrence of small plastic particles (nano- and micro-plastics) in the world’s seas, rivers and lakes, there has been limited research into understanding any adverse effects on living organisms.
  Comparative analysis of carbon assimilation pathways in key species of marine phytoplankton
  Dr T Tonon, Dr L Mackinder
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Seas and oceans cover more than 70% of our planet, contribute to half of the primary production on Earth, and are responsible for cycling half of the carbon fixed by living organisms.
  Evolution and biochemistry of photosynthesis - electron transfer reactions, renewable energy production, biotechnology, and chloroplast genomes
  Prof C J Howe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The common theme of our work is the biochemistry and evolution of photosynthesis.
  The contradictory functions of carotenoid-based light-harvesters: Understanding energy harvesting and dissipation in the Fucoxanthin-Chlorophyll Protein (FCP)
  Dr C Duffy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The School of Biological and Chemical Sciences at Queen Mary is one of the UK’s elite research centres, according to the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF).
  Investigating Photosynthesis in Nannochloropsis – An Important Algal Genus for Biofuel Production
  Dr D J Gilmour
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the key insights from phylogenetic studies of eukaryotic microorganisms is the enormous diversity within the microalgal group with green algae being similar to plants and other groups such as diatoms being very different.

  Deciphering algal metabolism of key marine chemicals involved in the sulfur biogeochemical cycle
  Dr T Tonon, Prof S J McQueen-Mason
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Marine ecosystems play major role in the biogeochemical cycling of several chemical elements, including sulfur. This is due to the metabolism of two key compounds, dimethylsulfoniopropionate (DMSP) and dimethyl sulfide (DMS).
  NERC GW4+ DTP studentship: Understanding the fate and potential impact of nano-plastics in freshwater organisms and ecosystems
  Prof I Durance, Prof P Borri
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is a growing realisation that the widespread use and degradation of plastics has created a legacy of plastic pollution. Mass balance studies have suggested that a large proportion of release plastics waste may now be present as micro- nano-scale particles.
  CO2 weathering of glacial till as nutrient source for Cryogenian biospheric oxygenation 720-635 million years ago (CO2-CryoBiophere)
  Dr E Chi Fru, Dr AC Smith, Dr E Bagshaw
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type
