  Understanding microbial lignin degradation in soil
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Prof T Bugg, Prof E M H Wellington
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Project Highlights. Understand microbiology of lignin degradation in soil. Identify novel lignin-degrading bacteria and enzymes. Application to resource recovery from landfill waste.
  Quantifying the effects of bacteria-phage interactions on daily micronutrient cycling in freshwater ecosystems. NERC FRESH CDT studentship, PhD in Biosciences
  Dr I Gudelj
Application Deadline: 17 December 2018
Lead Supervisor. Professor Ivana Gudelj, University of Exeter. Additional Supervisors. Dr Craig Barker-Austin, CEFAS. Dr Andrew Singer, CEH.
  Novel bacteria-mediated metal detoxification strategies for bioremediation
  Dr S Gebhard
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Heavy-metal contamination is a major problem worldwide, with fertilizers, pesticides, dyes, paints, and industrial processes such as metal processing and mining contributing to the problem.
  Elucidating the mechanisms of phospholipid transport in Gram-negative bacteria
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr T Knowles
Applications accepted all year round
This project focuses on characterising the fundamental process of outer membrane lipid transport in Gram-negative bacteria, a largely unknown process which is only now being revealed.
  The relationship between dietary iron and zinc, and the gut microbiota: Can dietary iron and zinc regime be exploited to improve health?
  Prof S C Andrews
Applications accepted all year round
"The gut microbiota (100 trillion cells) outnumber human cells by 10 to 1. Its composition of around 500 to 1000 species is specific for each individual and is dynamic, changing with age, health and diet.
  Speciation genomics, adaptation and gene transfer networks in bacteria
  Dr T Barraclough
Application Deadline: 16 January 2019
Supervisors. Tim Barraclough (Dept Life Sciences, Imperial College London, Silwood Park campus), Richard Everitt (Dept Mathematics and Statistics, Univ Reading).
  NERC GW4+ DTP PhD Studentship: Improving genomewide association study strategies for application on environmental bacteria
  Dr L A Cowley
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  Bacterial sensory perception: investigating the stimuli that bacteria can sense and how this information is used to regulate bacterial behavior
  Dr H O'Hare
Applications accepted all year round
Bacteria sense numerous environmental stimuli and integrate this information to regulate their own cellular processes accordingly.
  Unravelling evolutionary mechanisms of phage-bacteria interactions in spatially structured microbial communities
  Dr V Friman, Dr P Fogg, Dr S D Johnson
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The rapid rise of antibiotic resistance has made many clinical antibiotics ineffective. One way to increase the efficiency of antibiotics is to use them in combination with bacteria-specific viruses, phages.
  Understanding Multiple Antibiotic Resistance in Gram-negative Bacteria
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr D Grainger
Applications accepted all year round
Antibiotics have transformed medical practice, increased life expectancy and, together with vaccination, led to the near eradication of many bacterial diseases (1).
