  Investigating the molecular basis of bacterial pathogenicity of invertebrates
  Prof R W Jackson
Applications accepted all year round
Pseudomonas syringae bacteria are common within the environment and can infect a wide range of plant species. These bacteria employ a diverse arsenal of virulence factors to attack plants.
  Assessing the impacts of oil and gas decommissioning on population connectivity and community structure of native and invasive marine invertebrates using next-generation DNA technology - National Decommissioning Centre
  Dr A Douglas, Prof S Piertney
Application Deadline: 24 April 2019
Oil and gas infrastructure represent an important network of hard substrates that facilitates the stepping stone migration of native marine organisms as well as potentially aiding the spread of non-native invasive species.
  Investigating neuronal patterning and development
  Dr F Mackenzie, Prof A Walker, Dr N Hill
Applications accepted all year round
This 3-year PhD will study molecular and cellular mechanisms of neuronal patterning and neural development using ex vivo/in vitro methods (mouse/human tissue/cells) and/or in vivo methods (invertebrates).
  Sustainable multifunctional polymer foams (ref: SF18/APP/Perry)
  Prof J Perry
Applications accepted all year round
Chitin is the second most abundant biopolymer after cellulose it being found in the exoskeletons of insects and other invertebrates as well as providing structural rigidity to fungi.
  Analysis of pathogen determinants recognized by the hypervariable immune receptor Dscam
  Dr M Soller
Applications accepted all year round
Background. To mount an immune response, host organisms must first recognize the pathogen with which they are infected. The first line of defense against pathogen infection in animals is provided through the innate immune response.
  Recovery of algal communities along stress gradients resulting from an earthquake-disturbed coastal zone
  Prof D Schiel
Applications accepted all year round
In November 2016, a massive earthquake lifted over 100km of coastline of New Zealand’s South Island by up to 6m, causing considerable disruption to the nearshore marine ecosystem.
  PhD in Ecology and Environment: how ecosystems, and the species they contain, respond to environmental change and how to reduce and mitigate adverse impacts
  Dr D Childs
Applications accepted all year round
Environmental change threatens biodiversity, altering ecosystem processes and provision of ecosystem services. These environmental change pressures are accelerating due to growing human populations and accompanying climate change, land use, pollution and invasive species.
  PhD in Evolution and Behaviour: exploring the connection between how organisms have evolved and how they behave
  Dr D Childs
Applications accepted all year round
The connection between how organisms have evolved and how they behave is a fundamental principle of biology. It can show us why organisms are the way they are, and answer deep questions about the diversity of life on earth.
  Cave exploration: shedding light on organic sulfur cycling in a terrestrial underground chemosynthetic system
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr H Schaefer, Dr Y Chen
Application Deadline: 1 May 2019
Project Highlights. Investigate the organic sulfur cycle of a closed cave ecosystem based on chemosynthesis. Apply stable isotope and metagenomics approaches to characterise uncultivated bacteria.
