  Dr S O'Rourke, Prof N Holden
Application Deadline: 1 April 2019
Sustainable food production is top of the global policy agenda.
  The microbial ‘plastisphere’ – Characterisation of plastic-associated microbial communities in natural and engineered environments
  Dr G Lear
Applications accepted all year round
We are currently seeking a PhD student with interests in microbiology, molecular biology and the environment to conduct research into the microbial degradation of waste plastics.
  Experimental Evolution of Thaumarchaeota
  Dr C Gubry-Rangin, Prof J Prosser
Application Deadline: 16 April 2019
The fundamental aim of this project is to determine the process of adaptive diversification and associated trade-offs in fitness, by studying microbial evolution experimentally.

  Prof C Steinbeck
Application Deadline: 20 March 2019
The Cluster of Excellence “Balance of the Microverse” of the Friedrich Schiller University Jena, Germany, combines expertise in life, material, optical and computational sciences to elevate microbiome studies from descriptive to hypothesis-driven and functional analyses.
  Chemical cocktails: understanding the combined effects of nanoparticles and pharmaceutical on microbial species and populations.
  Dr I Lynch
Applications accepted all year round
Given that pharmaceuticals and nanomaterials (NMs) used in consumer products such as sunscreens and cosmetics have the same discharge pathways (i.e.
  Microverse Doctoral Researcher Project No: 06/2019Quantitative Analysis of Microbial Dynamics in Organ-on-Chip Models
  Prof M.T. Figge

  The effects of soil management practices on CAZyme expression by soil microbial communities and their influence on soil structure and crop production
  Mr S Hall
Application Deadline: 7 April 2019
Understanding links between CAZyme expression by soil microbial communities and crop management and production. The project will use metagenomics to identify microbial communities in soil and their role in carbohydrate cycling that contribute to crop nutrition and resilience of soil structure.
  Engineering Microbial Communities for Biotechnology and Bioremediation
  Dr J Pandhal
Applications accepted all year round
Microbial biotechnology is usually undertaken by a single species in a fermenter. However, some processes are metabolically challenging for a single species and therefore more suited to communities of microbes.
