  Antimicrobial resistance in marine mammals
  Dr G Troisi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project addresses an urgent Global Challenge – the growing widespread incidence of anti-microbial resistance (AMR). It will be the first to investigate an unreported alarming concern, that wild seals are dying off from AMR bacterial infections and mortality is greater in more polluted waters.
  Non-thermal Plasma Rapid Dry Decontamination on Sensitive Space Instrument
  Research Group: Astronautics
  Dr M K Kim
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisory team. Min Kwan Kim and C. William Keevil. Project description.
  Synthesis and Modelling of Robust Processes for Desalination of Shale-gas Produced Water
  Dr S Soltani
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Shale gas extraction via hydraulic fracking is a technique in which gas is extracted from the shale layers of rock under the ground.
  Dynamics of seawater intrusion in heterogeneous coastal aquifers
  Dr A Ahmed
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Saltwater intrusion (SWI) in coastal aquifers is one of the main challenges for water resources management. It is a natural process that happens because of the density difference between the denser saltwater and the lighter freshwater.
  Laser Processing of Hazardous Materials
  Dr L Jones
Application Deadline: 9 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Reference number. CFP-LJ1-2020. Closing date of advert. 9 July 20. Start Date. 01 October 2020. Supervisors. Primary supervisor. Dr Lewis Jones.
  Listeria monocytogenes in food supply chains – the persistent pathogen (Ref: SF20/APP/FOX)
  Dr E Fox
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The foodborne pathogen Listeria monocytogenes is an important contaminant of food products and associated supply chains, and has caused significant outbreaks of disease through consumption of contaminated food products.
  Understanding hepatitis E virus infection in pigs and humans
  Dr N Fletcher
Application Deadline: 22 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hepatitis E virus (HEV) is an emerging viral infection, and an increasing cause of acute viral hepatitis in the developed world. In developed countries, infection with HEV is most commonly associated with the consumption of contaminated meat, mainly from pigs.
  Role of metal resistance in foodborne bacterial disease
  Dr J Morrissey, Prof J M Ketley
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Foodborne infectious diseases are frequent and growing public health problems worldwide (World Health Organisation).
  Using genotype-to-phenotype analyses to identify the genetic determinants of gastroenteritis caused by the food-borne pathogen Campylobacter jejuni
  Dr C D Bayliss, Prof J Ketley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Campylobacter jejuni is the major causative agent of foodborne gastroenteritis across Europe. Contaminated chicken meat is the main source of infections and hence control of this pathogen is critical to food security in the poultry industry.
  Towards improved weather forecasting via IASI satellite observations of carbon dioxide
  Dr J Harrison
Application Deadline: 5 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The assimilation of satellite radiances is crucial for Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) models with the benefit approximately evenly split between infrared and microwave data.
  Water Sensitive Cities and Commons: using recycled water for maintenance irrigation to sustain green-blue infrastructure and to supplement the urban form hydrology
  Dr K Hyde
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Communities with existing urban water infrastructure face barriers to engagement between the urban community and the urban water environment; for example in the case of streams still culverted or unhealthy, overgrown feeder streams and ponds that have lost a social role or function.
  Functional analysis of novel genes important in the physiology and pathogenesis of the human pathogen Campylobacter jejuni
  Prof D J Kelly
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Campylobacter jejuni and E. coli are the commonest cause of human bacterial gastroenteritis worldwide. Although pathogenic in humans, C.
  Chemical and biological nano sensors for biomedicine and the environment
  Research Group: Quantum, Light & Matter
  Dr A Kanaras
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Supervisor. Prof. Antonios Kanaras. Co-supervisor. Prof. Otto Muskens. Project description. PhD studentship in the LICNA group (www.licn.phys.soton.ac.uk).
  Design of functional chitosan films: antimicrobial and heavy metal capture applications
  Dr P Mulheran, Dr V A Ferro
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chitosan is a biodegradable polymer obtained from natural, abundant and renewable sources. Chitosan has been the focus of much research into its applications as an antimicrobial, and for its ability to capture heavy metals from contaminated water.
  Climate Resilience in Infrastructure Adaptation Projects
  Dr D Dawson, Dr A Hunt
Application Deadline: 29 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Infrastructure resilience to climate change is becoming increasingly important as our built environments are subjected to increasing natural hazards.
