  Dr S Rueckert, Dr J Dodd
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

PROJECT DESCRIPTION. Gregarine apicomplexans are micro-eukaryotic parasites that are found in almost every group of terrestrial, freshwater and marine invertebrates (Leander 2008; Desportes & Schrével 2013).
  Marine Mammal Ecotoxicology
  Dr G Troisi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Exposure to persistent organic pollutants such has been shown to cause reproductive failure in wild seals and other aquatic mammal species and endocrine disruptive toxic mechanisms are believed to be involved.
  Evolutionary Theory: Exploring the role of intragenomic conflict in the evolution of molecular mechanisms
  Dr F Ubeda
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

I research how genes, individuals, and social structures can evolve making use of mathematical models.
  Discovery of new drug leads from under-explored marine microorganisms (PhDCEPS192002)
  Dr M Rateb
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microorganisms from under-explored environments such as the deep seas and cold seas have been shown to produce a range of complex natural products with diverse and potent biological activity.
  Immunogenetic Status of Salmonid Populations in Scotland
  Prof S Piertney, Dr M Wenzel, Dr D Morris, Dr J Gilbey
Application Deadline: 1 May 2020

  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.

PhD Type

BBSRC Thematic Group. Bioscience for Renewable Resources and Clean Growth. Fructans such as inulins and levans are fructose-based oligo- and polysaccharides derived from sucrose that have found use in a variety of industrial, agricultural and healthcare applications, most notably as prebiotic dietary supplements [1, 2].
  Plant responses to stress, metabolites for health and fuel from cell walls.
  Prof A Devoto
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Projects are available in the following areas. Stress responses in crops and sustainable biomass production and processing. The project aims at elucidating several aspects of the control of plant defences and to identify environmentally friendly forms of plant protectants, leading to enhanced crop yields.
