  Bioinformatics analyses of unknown metagenomics fraction
  Dr S Gweon
Applications accepted all year round
"DNA sequencing technology now allows us to investigate not only the identity of organisms that are present in complex environments like soil, but also what these tiny microbes are doing.
  Software for detection and monitoring of biological threats from metagenomics data
  Prof D Shields
Application Deadline: 10 February 2019
Principal UCD Supervisor. Denis Shields (School of Medicine). UCD Co-supervisor. Professor Seamus Fanning;. JRC Ispra Supervisor.
  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.
  The Bloomsbury Colleges PhD Studentships
The Bloomsbury Colleges PhD Studentships. 2019/20 entry. The Bloomsbury Colleges are inviting applications for 11 PhD studentships available for PhD studies beginning in the academic year 2019/20.
  Glaciers and ice sheets: pressurized nutrient bioreactors for the oceans
  Dr J Telling
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project is part of the ONE Planet DTP. Find out more here. https://research.ncl.ac.uk/one-planet/.
  Quantifying rates and causes of increasing global antibiotic resistance spread using High Arctic soils, microbial genetics and geochemistry
  Dr D Graham
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project is part of the ONE Planet DTP. Find out more here. https://research.ncl.ac.uk/one-planet/. Soils in populated locations have become major sinks for the genetic potential of human-driven antibiotic resistance (AR).
  Antimicrobial resistance and One Health: foodborne carriage of antimicrobial resistance markers (RDF19/HLS/AS/FOX)
  Dr E Fox
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Antimicrobial resistance is among the largest threats to human health, with the emergence of multidrug resistant bacterial infections meaning traditional treatment approaches are being rendered ineffective.
  Microbial community composition and biosynthetic potential of actinomycetes in the soil samples from extreme environments (ref: SF18/APP/SANGAL)
  Dr V Sangal
Applications accepted all year round
A number of bacterial species are able to survive in the extreme environmental conditions, e.g., hyper-arid soil of the Atacama desert (Busarakam et al., 2016; Castro et al., 2018).
  Planetary protection and the search for life in the outer solar system (ref: SF18/APP/Pearce)
  Prof D Pearce
Applications accepted all year round
The search for life in the outer solar system is centred on the search for water and the conditions which are known to support the ‘envelope of life’ on Earth.
  Plumbing the depths of microbial carbon cycling in restored peatlands
  Dr D Kumaresan, Dr D Mauquoy
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The project will be supervised by Dr Deepak Kumaresan of Queen’s University School of Biological Sciences and by Dmitri Mauquoy of the University of Aberdeen’s School of Geosciences.
