  Mining for Novel Cu Proteins in Ammonia Oxidising Archaea: A Missing Link in the Nitrogen Cycle? – to start October 2019 - for an MSc by Dissertation (MSD)
  Dr M Hough, Dr C Whitby, Dr J Worrall, Dr R Strange
Application Deadline: 24 April 2019
Background. Ammonia oxidising bacteria (AOB) and archaea (AOA) play a critical part in the global nitrogen cycle, with consequences for climate change.
  Effect of oxidative stress on the biochemistry of dimethylsulfoniopropionate (DMSP)-lyase enzymes in tropical reef organisms - to start October 2019 - for an MSc by Dissertation (MSD
  Dr M Steinke, Dr M Hough, Dr J Worrall
Application Deadline: 24 April 2019
Rationale. Tropical coral reefs are a substantial source of the climate-cooling gas dimethyl sulfide (DMS). The major precursor of DMS is the secondary metabolite dimethylsulfoniopropionate (DMSP) that is biosynthesised to high concentrations in symbiotic dinoflagellates of the tropical genus Symbiodinium [1].
  [EPSRC - iCASE] Microbe – radionuclide interactions in legacy nuclear waste systems
  Prof J Lloyd, Prof K Morris, Dr S Shaw, Dr L Natrajan
Application Deadline: 29 April 2019
Recent work in the Geomicrobiology Group at the University of Manchester has shown that microorganisms can have a controlling impact on the speciation (and hence mobility) of key radionuclides in a broad range of natural and engineered systems.
  Metaproteomics Approaches to Uncover Ecosystem Function in Aquatic Environments
  Dr J Pandhal, Dr A Beckerman
Applications accepted all year round
Recently, it has become increasingly apparent that quantifying the molecular cellular components (e.g. DNA, mRNA, proteins and metabolites) in environmental samples can reveal significant information on ecosystem function.
  Contributing to the circular economy: biological coagulant recovery in water and wastewater treatment PhD
  Dr G Dotro, Prof B Jefferson
Application Deadline: 17 May 2019
Sponsored by EPSRC, Cranfield University, Severn Trent Water, Thames Water, United Utilities and Scottish Water, this studentship will provide a bursary of up to £18,500 (tax free) plus fees* for three years.
  Elucidating the pathobiology of Candida albicans
  Dr R Hall
Applications accepted all year round
The Hall lab is interested in understanding the biology and virulence factors of fungal pathogens. Our research largely focuses on the opportunistic fungal pathogen Candida albicans, which causes a range of infections from superficial mucosal infections (i.e.
  Immune Development in a Piglet Model of Environmental Enteric Dysfunction
  Dr M Lewis, Prof G Gibson
Applications accepted all year round
Summary. Environmental enteric dysfunction (EED) affects 200 million children in low- and middle-income countries and has extremely detrimental consequences for long-term health.
  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.
  Medical Research Foundation National PhD Training Programme in Antimicrobial Resistance Research: Linking Restoration of Natural Capital to Reduction in Selection for and Dissemination of AMR in Aquatic Systems
  Prof W Gaze, Dr A Singer, Dr A Leonard, Dr A Murray
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a global threat in terms of health, economic and societal outcomes.
  Non-thermal plasma technology for environmental protection
  Dr R Erfani
Applications accepted all year round
Reference Number. SciEng-RE-2018-1. Project Summary. This project aims to advance air pollution reduction technology by developing Non-thermal plasma reactor design.
