microbial ecology PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

We have 18 microbial ecology PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

PhD Project on Defining Links Between Climate Change, Marine Disease and Food Security

This PhD project will apply cutting edge approaches in molecular microbial ecology to deliver. critical new knowledge on the causes of marine pathogen outbreaks that threaten Australia’s. Read more

Engineering plant microbiome PhD: Exploring and engineering the plant microbiome for increased resilience

Title. Exploring and engineering the plant microbiome for increased resilience. Project Description. Plants are impacted by numerous abiotic and biotic factors above and below ground, such as nutrient availability, local climatic conditions, and the surrounding fauna. Read more

How do interactions in the microbiome shape the evolution of antibiotic resistance in bacterial pathogens?

Antibiotic resistance in pathogenic bacteria poses a fundamental threat to human health. It is estimated that antibiotic resistant infections are already directly responsible for at least one million deaths per annum and this number is predicted to rise dramatically by 2050. Read more

Modelling the ecology and evolution of microbial communities

From the human gut to deep-sea sediments, microbial communities – or microbiomes – colonize virtually every habitat on earth. These microbiomes are central to ecosystem functioning and to host health, and therefore it is essential that we understand how and why they change over time. Read more

Exploring the ying and yang of the early life microbiota

Project Overview. Join the Hall Lab at the University of Birmingham's Institute of Microbiology and Infection for an exciting PhD opportunity investigating the role of the beneficial and potentially pathogenic microbiota members in global infant populations. Read more

10 PhD positions in the MSCA Doctoral Network PHABB

Our planet is mostly blue and mankind increasingly relies on the quality of our marine and freshwater bodies to produce our food and provide clean drinking water. Read more

The role of regulatory evolution in phage ecology

The regulation of genes crucially determines the fitness and function of all organisms. This is particularly relevant for bacteriophages, the viruses that infect bacteria, as they rely on a tightly scheduled program for a successful infection. Read more

Deciphering the mechanistic drivers of plant-microbe feedback

The soil microbial pool is an untapped reservoir of genetic diversity. In soil, plants form relationships with microbial consortia that aid in nutrient acquisition, plant defence, and general healthy functioning of the plant. Read more

The effect of traffic and tillage systems on greenhouse gas emissions from a unique long-term field laboratory

Project Background. The reduced need and intensity of tillage where compaction is avoided improves soil condition and soil function, and helps reduce soil greenhouse gas emissions. Read more
