  Planetary protection and the search for life in the outer solar system (ref: SF18/APP/Pearce)
  Prof D Pearce
Applications accepted all year round
The search for life in the outer solar system is centred on the search for water and the conditions which are known to support the ‘envelope of life’ on Earth.
  Causes and consequences of Biolgeochemical mismatches during drought
  Dr U Nielsen, Dr T Jeffries, Dr Y Carrilo
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
RESEARCH ENVIRONMENT. The Hawkesbury Institute for the Environment (HIE) is a research institute within Western Sydney University.
  Characterising the faecal virome in Crohn’s disease patients with known NOD2 variants compared to matched controls without gastrointestinal disease (ref: SF18/APP/Bridge)
  Dr SH Bridge
Applications accepted all year round
The human virome includes viruses that infect host cells and viruses that infect bacteria, and impacts on health and disease independently of classical viral disease.
  [EPSRC iCASE] Management of 90Sr Contamination in Groundwaters at Sellafield: In situ Phosphate Mineralisation Approaches
  Research Group: Molecular Environmental Sciences
  Prof K Morris, Prof J Lloyd, Prof S Shaw, Dr L Natrajan
Application Deadline: 29 April 2019
This research project will, building on our extensive expertise in remediation research, explore the mechanisms of Sr retention during phosphate mineralisation treatments in Sellafield relevant sediment and groundwater experiments.
  Plant and Soil Microbiome Interactions
  Prof B Singh
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
The Hawkesbury Institute for the Environment (HIE) is a research institute within Western Sydney University. HIE has rapidly become a research leader in environmental and ecological research, with a strong reputation for delivering research outcomes of the highest quality.
  Novel microbiome based biomarkers of poultry gut health (NARBADQ19CASE2)
  Prof A Narbad
Application Deadline: 23 April 2019
The animal gastrointestinal tract contains trillions of microbes that play a critical role in their health and wellbeing. Poultry birds reared under intensive conditions are exposed to environmental stresses that disturb their gut microbiome and adversely impact on their health.
  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.
  The interactive effects of climate change and plant species invasion on plant and microbial trait diversity
  Dr J Deslippe
Applications accepted all year round
This PhD project addresses the interactive effects of climate change and plant species invasion on plant and microbial trait diversity and ecosystem processes along elevational gradients in Tongariro National Park, New Zealand, with a particular emphasis on mycorrhizas and plant root traits.
  Examining the host-environmental interface of Histoplasma capsulatum to understand the implications of disease management within endemic populations.
  Dr C Scantlebury, Prof A J McCarthy, Dr T Helgason
Applications accepted all year round
Histoplasmosis is an endemic disease with serious consequences to equine and human health. This dimorphic fungus favours nitrogen rich environments, and generates highly resistant spores.
  Soil aggregation and organic carbon allocation induced by plant and microbial activity in the rhizosphere
  Dr C Mueller
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
The project ‘Self differentiation of soil aggregation and organic carbon allocation induced by plant and microbial activity in the rhizosphere’ is part of the DFG priority program 2089 “Rhizosphere Spatiotemporal Organisation – a Key to Rhizosphere Functions” (www.ufz.de/spp-rhizosphere).
