  Using Reverse Metagenomics to characterise nematode communities and soil health (YUUBIO19ARIES)
  Prof D W Yu, Prof M Hutchings
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Scientific background. Free-living nematodes are present in huge numbers in the soil. A few species are estimated to cause tens of billions ($USD) of damage to crops globally each year.
  Identification, screening and scale up of enzymes in the Biocatalyst Discovery Metagenomics platform
  Prof N Scrutton, Prof N Turner
Applications accepted all year round
Background – Enzyme engineering strategies, supported by computational and molecular modelling to maximise speed and efficiency, has been shown to be a powerful tool for (semi-) rational design of enzymes.1,2 We will evaluate protein mobility/dynamics, docking/binding of substrates and calculation of free energy barriers for catalysis.
  Revealing a cryptic organosulfur cycle in benthic marine environments using microbiology and metagenomics
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr H Schaefer, Dr Y Chen
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Project Highlights. Microbiology of cycling of climatically active aerosol precursors and trace gases. Apply metagenomics approaches to organosulfur cycling.
  Microbial lipid cycling in the oceans: an integrated ‘omics’ approach
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr Y Chen, Prof D J Scanlan
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Project Highlights. Marine microbes meet omics. World-leading supervisory team on marine microbiology and ecology. Uniquely opportunity at Warwick to apply cutting-edge techniques on integrated omics.
  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.
  Sustainable management of soil nitrogen-fixing biodiversity in the Andean pasture (DEVEGAUEI19ARIES)
  Dr J De Vega, Dr C Di Maria, Dr S Ferrini
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
This proposal targets the Colombian Andean pastures used for livestock grazing in the regions close to Bogota and Cali. The student will evaluate how different farming practices impact soil diversity there, focusing in nitrogen-fixing bacteria (NFB) communities that interact with legume plants.
  Establishing the links between skin microbiome, pollution and disease susceptibility in a native UK amphibian species
  Dr X Harrison
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  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.
  Microbial communities cycling organic sulfur compounds in Arctic sea ice
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr H Schaefer, Dr Y Chen
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Overview. The Arctic is undergoing significant changes due to climate warming. Arctic ice cover has significant feedbacks and regulatory function for regional and global climate, but recently the extent of ice cover in the Arctic Ocean has fallen to record low levels.
  aqAMR: AMR at the interface of the agricultural and aquatic environments
  Dr T Connor, Prof P Kille
Application Deadline: 17 December 2018
The interface between aquatic systems, agricultural environments involved in livestock farming and human habitation represents, on a microbial ecology level, an interface between microbial populations that are all under different antimicrobial selection pressures.
