  The Soil Microbial Black Box - Does What’s Inside Matter?
  Dr M Giles, Dr E Paterson, Prof L Baggs, Dr R Neilson
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
A single gram of soil can harbor in the order of 1010 bacteria and up to 52 000 individual species. However, the role of this diversity in regulating soil functions (e.g.
  Microbial survival and activity in bentonite clay: relevance to the safety case for geological disposal of radioactive waste
  Dr H Sass
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Project Background. The disposal of radioactive waste in geological disposal facilities (GDF) deep underground is being planned by several countries including the UK.
  Microbial controls on carbon loss from eroding and restored UK blanket peatland
  Research Group: Molecular Environmental Sciences
  Dr C Robinson, Prof J Lloyd, Prof M G Evans
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
CASE STUDENTSHIP with Moors for the Future Partnership. The blanket peatlands of the UK are important terrestrial carbon stores but are uniquely eroded because of impacts of industrial pollution, overgrazing, wildfire and climate change (Evans and Warburton, 2011 and Figure 1).
  Structure and function of soil microbial communities in contrasting biomes at The Eden Project
  Dr K. Field, Prof P E Urwin, Dr T Helgason
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
"The Eden Project is a unique global garden situated in a reclaimed Kaolinite quarry approximately 3 miles from St Austell, Cornwall.
  The role of interspecific interactions in shaping adaptive evolution in soil microbial communities
  Dr S O'Brien, Prof S Paterson, Prof M Brockhurst
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Understanding how microbial communities evolve and function is regarded as one of today’s greatest challenges. Microbial communities are highly diverse and complex, yet this same complexity makes it extremely challenging to understand how a community might respond and adapt to change.
  SCENARIO: Engineering soil microbial carbon metabolism for multiple environmental benefits
  Dr E J Shaw, Dr R Griffiths, Dr M Redmile-Gordon, Dr E Armenise
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Soils are essential to human well-being because they perform multiple functions that underpin the provision of ecosystem services that sustain life and regulate climate.
  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.
  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.
  (BBSRC DTP CASE) Microbial chassis engineering for next generation hydrocarbon biofuels manufacturing
  Prof N Scrutton, Dr H Toogood
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The development of economically viable microbial biofuels is a consequence of global concerns about reducing carbon emissions, dwindling fossil fuel supply and the development of cost effective renewable and sustainable bio-based strategies.
  SCENARIO: Understanding microbial community dynamics and resilience in communal sink drains
  Dr S Gweon, Dr G Barrett, Dr S MacIntyre, Dr A Meade
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Sink drains. What’s lurking in these drains? Why and how do they persist? How resilient are they? What would be the impact of depositing pathogens or antibiotic resistance genes into the drain, and how long will they persist?.
