  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.

  Assessing the diversity, drivers & importance of Megaira, intracellular symbiont of aquatic eukaryotes
  Prof G Hurst, Prof M Brockhurst, Dr D J S Montagnes, Prof D Cameron
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The biology, ecology and evolution of eukaryotes is in part a product of their symbiotic interactions with microbes. Intracellular microbes, retained during cell division and reproduction, are particularly interesting, as they are selected to maintain and nurture their hosts.
