  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Investigating microbiome–host interactions in the preterm gut using metagenomics and stem-cell derived enteroid “mini guts”
  Dr C Stewart, Dr J Kirby, Dr C Lamb
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Preterm infants born. This project seeks to extensively characterise the preterm gut microbiome and to subsequently investigate how bacteria and preterm gut epithelial cells interact.
  An investigation of soil bacteriophages associated with positive and poor crop outcome
  Prof M Clokie
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
There is an increasing awareness that the microbial composition of soil can impact the productivity of crop plants. Bacteria have key roles in increasing the ability of plants to take up nutrients and to combat pathogenic bacteria.
  Understanding microbial lignin degradation in soil
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Prof T Bugg, Prof E M H Wellington
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Project Highlights. Understand microbiology of lignin degradation in soil. Identify novel lignin-degrading bacteria and enzymes. Application to resource recovery from landfill waste.
  Microbial methane cycling in Scottish peatlands
  Research Group: Institute of Life and Earth Sciences
  Dr J Pratscher, Prof P A Wookey
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Peatlands are one of Scotland’s most important natural assets, cover over 20% of Scotland’s land area, and they are estimated to store around 1,600 Mt of carbon.
  A comprehensively analysis of microorganisms and viruses from ancient samples using minion sequencing techniques
  Prof M Marz
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
In current metagenomic samples we are able to assign only up to 10% of the microorganisms, most of them being bacteria. This number drops significantly when investigating additionally viruses in especially ancient samples.
  Developing alternatives to antibiotics in UK pig production – the efficacy and mechanism of action of marine sulphated polysaccharides
  Dr G Pearce, Dr M Holmes
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
Project Background. The use of antibiotics has played a major role in improving the health status, welfare and productivity of pig production over the last 50 years.
  Structure and function of soil microbial communities in contrasting biomes at The Eden Project
  Dr K. Field, Prof P E Urwin, Dr T Helgason
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
"The Eden Project is a unique global garden situated in a reclaimed Kaolinite quarry approximately 3 miles from St Austell, Cornwall.
  Cave exploration: shedding light on organic sulfur cycling in a terrestrial underground chemosynthetic
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr H Schaefer, Dr Y Chen
Application Deadline: 21 January 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.
