  Bioprospecting & biotechnology - mining the Polar microbial metagenome (Ref: SF20/APP/PEARCE2)
  Prof D Pearce
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project seeks to exploit new and existing Polar microbial metagenomic libraries for bioprospecting and biotechnology. Using a wide range of diverse molecular techniques, we will research the distribution of particularly useful (e.g.
  Rapid detection and monitoring of pathogens within industrial cooling water systems
  Dr K Fish
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This interdisciplinary project seeks to safeguard public health by reducing infection risks from microorganisms that proliferate within water systems of our built environment.
  Modelling and optimising microbial nutrient cycling for the promotion of a circular bioeconomy(Project fully funded for 3.5 years)
  Prof J Mcgrath, Dr J Chin
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Although microbial communities play major biogeochemical roles in all ecosystems, driving carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus cycling, they remain only crudely represented in existing biogeochemical models of these systems.
  Fungal Informatics
  Dr A Barber
Application Deadline: 25 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Leibniz Institute for Natural Product Research and Infection Biology – Hans Knöll Institute (Leibniz-HKI, www.leibniz-hki.de) investigates the pathobiology of human-pathogenic fungi and identifies targets for the development of novel natural product-based antibiotics.
  Determining the microbiome of the homes of people with chronic respiratory diseases
  Dr D Gilpin, Dr D Downey
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In recent years, our understanding of the microbial world in and around us has radically changed. The idea that we live with a complex and diverse community of microbes, has moved us away from a “hygiene hypothesis”, where having less bacteria was, to put it simply, better.
  The respiratory metagenome during exacerbations of asthma
  Prof N Papadopoulos, Prof D Robertson, Dr S Megremis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Asthma is an international pandemic, with 10% or more of the global population having experience asthma symptoms some time in life.
  GW4 FRESH CDT PhD Studentship - Stereoisomerism of antimicrobial agents and risks to freshwater ecosystems
  Prof B Kasprzyk-Hordern
Application Deadline: 11 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

GW4 FRESH is a consortium of the UK’s top research intensive universities. Bath, Bristol, Cardiff and Exeter and research organisations, British Geological Society and the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology.
  Microorganisms entombed in Polar ice – assessing the potential emergence of new diseases (Ref: SF20/APP/PEARCE1)
  Prof D Pearce
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The melting Polar Ice caps and receding glaciers worldwide are resulting in the emergence of microorganisms entombed in the ice for considerable periods of time.
  Investigation of the limits of niche specialisation and plasticity in the rumen microbiome(Project fully funded for 3.5 years)
  Prof S Huws, Prof C Creevey
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The rumen microbiome is a highly complex community that it characterised by intensive competition for access to the nutrient-rich biomass consumed by the host.
  Developing phage therapy to control plant pathogenic bacteria in the rhizosphere microbiome
  Dr V Friman
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plant pathogenic bacteria cause considerable economic losses to food production systems. The main reason for this is that hardly any effective control methods exist to mitigate this damage.
  Furthering our understanding of microbial community dynamics through antimicrobial-driven dysbiosis(Project fully funded for 3.5 years)
  Prof C Creevey, Dr S Huws
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The identification of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) genes from metagenomic data has vastly increased our knowledge of their prevalence and communicability between and within microbiomes.
  Aerobiology and the Arctic - microbial colonization of remote polar environments.(Ref: SF20/APP/PEARCE3)
  Prof D Pearce
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The rate of dispersal to an ecosystem can significantly influence ecosystem dynamics. Aerial transport has also been identified as an important source of biological input to remote locations.
  Microbiology and ecology of microbes in our rivers - their niche distribution and functional implications
  Dr S Gweon
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"The distributions of microorganisms in our rivers and their interactions play an important role to environment and human health.
