Microbial Response to Global Change

In some from or fashion, every lifeform on Earth has been impacted by human activity, including microorganisms. Many of these microbes are involved in global biogeochemical cycling, breaking down or converting essential elements such as carbon and nitrogen. Read more

Microbial activity on glaciers and ice sheets: an integrated modelling and empirical approach.

  Research Group: Earth Surface Science
Glaciers and ice sheets are important microbe-dominated ecosystems, that are undergoing rapid changes due to climate change. Supraglacial (glacier surface) ecosystems contain organisms from all three domains of life, which drive carbon and nutrient cycling, and cause ice darkening, thus enhancing ice mass loss. Read more

Forests in a changing environment: A study of nitrogen cycle feedbacks

  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
Project Highlights. Novel research to describe forest nitrogen cycle dynamics in response to global change. Access to one of the most extensively characterised ancient woodlands in the UK, facilitating opportunities for wider collaboration in forest ecology research. Read more

PhD position in the Restoration of Soil Microbial and Invertebrate Biodiversity in Urban Greenspaces

Exposure to soil biodiversity in urban greenspaces can promote human and wildlife health by impacting their microbiomes. However, the development of soil biodiversity following aboveground restoration is poorly understood, as are the pathways through which people are exposed to this biodiversity. Read more

Microbial colour using textile fibre waste

Many microbes produce colour pigments due to secondary metabolites depending on the energy sources and surrounding environment. Examples include red colour produced by Penicillium miniolutem in Sabouraud broth, Rhizopus sp. Read more

Biotechnological production microbial lipids rich in gamma-linolenic acid (GLA)

Linolenic acid (GLA, ω-6 family) is a medicinally and nutritionally important polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) with a broad spectrum of applications, extending from food supplements to anti-cancer formulations. Read more

Microbial Fuel Cell (MFC)-based sensor platforms for remote monitoring of a wide range of environments

Supervisory Team.   Yannis Ieropoulos, Yue Zhang. Project description. This PhD is will investigate a novel approach for the monitoring and sensing of essential nutrients and other analytes in a wide range of environments by the deployment of 'living sensors'. Read more

Microbial and biogeochemical processes through the ocean-sediment continuum

  Research Group: Earth Surface Science
The interface between the ocean and subseafloor sediments is a critical boundary that influences life in the deep biosphere, the transport and transformation of organic carbon and nutrients, and the global carbon cycle. Read more
