  DNA replication, recombination and repair in Archaea
  Dr T Allers, Dr E Bolt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Additional Supervisor. Anita Marchfelder (University of Ulm, Germany). Archaea are the third domain of life, alongside eukaryotes and bacteria.
  Live cell imaging under extreme conditions
  Dr B Baum
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Complex eukaryotic cells first appeared on earth over a billion years ago. It is now thought that they arose as the result of the establishment of a symbiotic partnership between an archaeal host cell and a bacterium, which went on to become the mitochondrion.
  Combining molecular genetics and biochemistry to explore the biology of chromosomal DNA replication in the Archaea
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr S MacNeill
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Archaea constitute the third domain of life on Earth, comprise an estimated 20% of the planet’s biomass and make a major impact on both biosphere and atmosphere.
  Discovering new DNA repair enzymes using archaea as a model for mammals
  Dr E Bolt, Dr T Allers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD research project will combine protein biochemistry and molecular biology methods, and will provide detailed training into how to analyse gene and protein function.
  Influence of Plant Genetic Diversity on Biological Nitrification Inhibition
  Dr C Gubry-Rangin, Prof J Prosser
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nitrification is a crucial step of the nitrogen cycle as it oxidises ammonia into nitrate. This has important economic and environmental consequences, with important loss of nitrogen fertiliser, nitrate leaching into groundwater soil and nitrous oxide production.
  The mysterious microbial ecosystem beneath our feet: Unravelling the groundwater microbiology archive
  Mr J Sorensen
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This FRESH CDT project aims to provide the first overview of the UK’s groundwater microbial ecosystem. Groundwater constitutes 99% of all accessible freshwater on the planet and is a vital resource for public water supply in the UK.
  Chromatin evolution – beyond histones
  Research Group: Molecular Systems
  Dr T Warnecke
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Across all domains of life, DNA is intimately associated with proteins that wrap, package, and protect it. Bacteria encode a variety of small basic proteins that are dynamically expressed and fulfil a variety of architectural roles by bridging, wrapping, or bending DNA.
  Investigating the structure and function of the divisome, the multi-protein complex that facilitates cell division in bacteria.
  Dr J Lowe
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

When bacteria and archaea divide, most form a ring structure that facilitates the separation of mother and daughter cells. The best-known component of the cytokinetic ring is FtsZ, the bacterial tubulin homologue.
  The mechanism of gating and transport of pentameric Magnesium ion channels
  Dr S M Prince, Prof R Ford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Magnesium ions are a co-factor in many important biological processes particularly because of the requirement for Mg2+ in the hydrolysis of Adenosine tri-phosphate, the ubiquitous cellular energy source.
  Impact of environmental stressors on microbiota and health in a marine chordate
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr I Somorjai
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The gut microbiota - the complex community of bacteria, viruses and archaea with which we live - has an important impact on health, disease progression, lifespan and behaviour (Glendinning and Free 2014).
