  Microbial survival in the energy-limited deep biosphere
  Research Group: Earth Surface Science
  Dr J Bradley, Prof M Trimmer, Prof L Belyea
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The deep subsurface biosphere contains a vast proportion of Earth’s microbial life and organic carbon. In deep, energy-limited settings, microorganisms persist over extraordinarily long timescales with very slow metabolisms – constituting an important analogue to the potential for life beyond Earth.
  Impacts of weathering, redox cycling and microbial activity on the formation of kaolinite (china clay). PhD in Mining and Minerals Engineering (NERC GW4 + DTP)
  Dr L Newsome
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Dr Laura Newsome, Camborne School of Mines, College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences, University of Exeter.
  PhD position in gut microbiota research/microbial evolutionary genomics
  Prof P Engel
Application Deadline: 30 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our laboratory works on social bees to address current questions about the evolution, function, and ecology of specialized gut microbial communities.
  Understanding how adaptive evolution shapes microbial community functioning in a changing environment
  Dr S O'Brien, Dr S Zytynska, Prof D Cameron
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the main motivations for better understanding microbial communities is to manage ecosystem functioning. When conditions change, for example through climate change or intensive agricultural practices, microbial adaptive responses will drive ecological and evolutionary changes in the soil microbiome.
  Chemical cocktails: understanding the combined effects of nanoparticles and pharmaceutical on microbial species and populations.
  Dr I Lynch
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Given that pharmaceuticals and nanomaterials (NMs) used in consumer products such as sunscreens and cosmetics have the same discharge pathways (i.e.
  A human ’mini-gut-on-a-chip’ to study microbial-epithelial cell interactions (SAEEDU20DTP)
  Dr A Saeed, Dr M R Williams
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human organoids are 3D fragments of adult tissues and ideally conserve all of the (stem) cell types and recapitulate all of the (patho)physiological processes associated with human health and disease.
  Tracking anaerobic microbial community responses using a synthetic biology approach
  Dr J P J Chong, Dr K Redeker
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Anaerobic digestion (AD) supports the biogenic production of methane from. organic waste by utilising the catabolic activities of complex microbial.
  Engineering Microbial Communities for Biotechnology and Bioremediation
  Dr J Pandhal
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  How does soil microbial diversity impact upon above-ground drought tolerance in plants?
  Dr A Hodge, Dr J Ferrari, Prof J Gray
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microbes perform several key roles in soils including in the supply of many. nutrients through the degradation of soil organic matter, and can contribute to.
  Microbial life and activity on glaciers and in Arctic soils
  Research Group: Earth Surface Science
  Dr J Bradley, Dr A Jungblut, Prof K Heppell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Arctic plays host to a diverse range of microorganisms, including bacteria, algae, and viruses.
