  Effects of dispersants on mitigating environmental impacts of marine oil pollution: insights from microbiological, chemical and field investigations.
  Dr B McKew, Dr R Holland, Dr T J McGenity
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Scientific background. Oil spills are one of the most challenging threats to the marine environment that can have long-. term impacts on fisheries, the economy and society.
  Fate, transformation and effect of microplastics on microbial communities in the environment
  Dr C Whitby, Dr P Laissue, Dr A G Mayes, Prof R Thompson
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Scientific background. Microplastics enter ecosystems, where they affect microorganisms and their processes. Microbial-driven ammonia-oxidation is fundamental to the environmental cycling of nitrogen (N) and ammonia-oxidisers are highly sensitive to environmental perturbations.
  The changing nature of Antarctic food webs
  Dr E O'Gorman, Dr S Hill, Dr M Taylor, Dr P Hollyman
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Scientific background. Marine ecosystems around Antarctica are characterised by high numbers of penguins, seals, whales, and their common prey, krill.
  Microbial survival and activity in bentonite clay: relevance to the safety case for geological disposal of radioactive waste
  Dr H Sass, Dr S Gregory
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project keywords. (methanogenesis, sulphate reduction, anaerobic processes, groundwater, subsurface microbiology, deep biosphere, starvation).
  PhD: Microbial activity at the ice-soil interface in a High-Arctic setting
  Dr J Bradley, Dr A Jungblut, Prof K Heppell
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Summary. The Arctic is currently experiencing amplified effects of climate change, including dramatic warming, the widespread retreat of glaciers, and the thawing of permafrost.
  Microbial life and activity on glaciers and in Arctic soils
  Research Group: Earth Surface Science
  Dr J Bradley, Dr A Jungblut, Prof K Heppell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Arctic plays host to a diverse range of microorganisms, including bacteria, algae, and viruses.
  Getting Dirty with Soil Phosphorus (BREARLEYU20DTP)
  Dr C Brearley, Dr J Todd
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

A growing world population demands that agricultural production is managed sustainability. A major threat is our over-reliance for fertilizer on rock phosphate that is a dwindling and geo-politically vulnerable resource.
  Changes to prescribing – evaluation of likely impacts on the aquatic environment and AMR potential
  Dr K Helwig, Dr C Hunter, Dr J Spencer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCEBE-19-019. After consumption, pharmaceutical residues are excreted by patients, not fully removed in wastewater treatment works, and thus enter the aquatic environment, where they pose a risk to aquatic organisms through chronic exposure.
  [EPSRC - iCASE] Microbe – radionuclide interactions in legacy nuclear waste systems
  Prof J Lloyd, Prof K Morris, Prof S Shaw, Dr L Natrajan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Does plant pathogen adaptation in environmental reservoirs and secondary host affect its virulence and risk for transmission?
  Dr V Friman, Prof M Brockhurst, Dr D Jeffares
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Even though opportunistic plant pathogens must survive in various natural. environments during transmission between hosts, this crucial part of their life-.
