  Understanding the ecology and biogeochemistry of midwater ecosystems
  Dr K Cook, Dr D Mayor, Dr B Ward
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Project Rationale. The mesopelagic zone of the ocean (~50-1000 m beneath the surface), often referred to as the ‘twilight zone’, remains one of the most poorly understood ecosystems on Earth.
  A biogeochemical conundrum: How do metals cross the bacterial outer membrane?
  Dr C Blindauer, Prof D J Scanlan
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Project Highlights. Highly efficient uptake of metal ions is central to major biogeochemical cycles. The project will provide insight into an important unsolved aspect of marine biogeochemistry.
  Mass and energy flow in seafloor ecosystems, testing and tuning deep-sea models with biochemical observations
  Dr R Jeffreys, Prof A Hirst, Dr B Bett
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Introduction. Deep-sea habitats at water depths over 2000 m cover ~60% of the Earth’s surface and are the largest and least explored environment on the planet (Smith et al.
  SCENARIO: Nutrient release from coniferous woodland stimulated by changes in forest management: A new nitrate time bomb?
  Dr M Lukac, Mr M Ascott, Dr E Vanguelova
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Nitrogen (N) pollution of rivers and groundwater costs billions of pounds per year globally in water treatment and environmental damage from eutrophication.
  Nutrient Resources in a Future Ocean
  Dr S Reynolds,, Dr F Ragazzola, Dr M Hale
Application Deadline: 17 February 2019
Applications are invited for a fully-funded three year PhD to commence in October 2019. The PhD will be based in the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences and will be supervised by Dr Sarah Reynolds, Dr Federica Ragazzola and Dr Michelle Hale.
  SCENARIO: Engineering soil microbial carbon metabolism for multiple environmental benefits
  Dr E J Shaw, Dr R Griffiths, Dr M Redmile-Gordon, Dr E Armenise
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Soils are essential to human well-being because they perform multiple functions that underpin the provision of ecosystem services that sustain life and regulate climate.
  Smart Monitoring of Catchment Water Quality
  Dr E Bagshaw
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Project Background. Agricultural pollution of surface water, estuaries and drinking water treatment costs the UK £229 million annually.
  Planetary protection and the search for life in the outer solar system (ref: SF18/APP/Pearce)
  Prof D Pearce
Applications accepted all year round
The search for life in the outer solar system is centred on the search for water and the conditions which are known to support the ‘envelope of life’ on Earth.
  The Soil Microbial Black Box - Does What’s Inside Matter?
  Dr M Giles, Dr E Paterson, Prof L Baggs, Dr R Neilson
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
A single gram of soil can harbor in the order of 1010 bacteria and up to 52 000 individual species. However, the role of this diversity in regulating soil functions (e.g.
  Leaf chemistry response to elevated CO2: decomposition and nutrient cycle impacts
  Dr R Bartlett, Dr L Batty
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The Birmingham Institute of Forest Research Free Air Carbon Enrichment Facility (BIFoR FACE) is an outdoor experiment studying the impact of elevated carbon dioxide (eCO2) on an established deciduous forest ecosystem through several multi-disciplinary research projects.
