  Microbial ecology and metagenomics of a foodborne pathogen (MATHERQ20DTP)
  Dr A Mather
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Campylobacter is the commonest bacterial cause of diarrhoeal disease in the UK, where is it most often associated with poultry, and amongst the top five causes of diarrhoeal disease in low and middle-income countries.
  Exploring the contribution of horizontal gene transfer to greenhouse gas emissions from arable agriculture
  Dr J Hall, Prof T J Daniell
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nitrous oxide (N2O) is a potent and long-lived greenhouse gas, and arable agriculture is a major source of N2O due to incomplete denitrification of N-based fertilizers by microbes.
  Rising from the ashes: Understanding the biological resilience and social significance of fires in the UK
  Dr H C Glanville
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project description. Aim. To investigate the resilience of upland soils to wildfires and examine the social significance of wildfires in the UK rural landscape.
  Does plant pathogen adaptation in environmental reservoirs and secondary host affect its virulence and risk for transmission?
  Dr V Friman, Prof M Brockhurst, Dr D Jeffares, Mr J Elphinstone
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Even though opportunistic plant pathogens must survive in various natural. environments during transmission between hosts, this crucial part of their life-.
  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.
  PhD position in gut microbiota research/microbial evolutionary genomics
  Prof P Engel
Application Deadline: 30 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our laboratory works on social bees to address current questions about the evolution, function, and ecology of specialized gut microbial communities.
  Understanding how adaptive evolution shapes microbial community functioning in a changing environment
  Dr S O'Brien, Dr S Zytynska, Prof D Cameron
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the main motivations for better understanding microbial communities is to manage ecosystem functioning. When conditions change, for example through climate change or intensive agricultural practices, microbial adaptive responses will drive ecological and evolutionary changes in the soil microbiome.
  Impacts of weathering, redox cycling and microbial activity on the formation of kaolinite (china clay). PhD in Mining and Minerals Engineering (NERC GW4 + DTP)
  Dr L Newsome
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Dr Laura Newsome, Camborne School of Mines, College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences, University of Exeter.
  Tracking anaerobic microbial community responses using a synthetic biology approach
  Dr J P J Chong, Dr K Redeker
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Anaerobic digestion (AD) supports the biogenic production of methane from. organic waste by utilising the catabolic activities of complex microbial.
  Fate, transformation and effect of microplastics on microbial communities in the environment
  Dr C Whitby, Dr P Laissue, Dr A G Mayes, Prof R Thompson
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Scientific background. Microplastics enter ecosystems, where they affect microorganisms and their processes. Microbial-driven ammonia-oxidation is fundamental to the environmental cycling of nitrogen (N) and ammonia-oxidisers are highly sensitive to environmental perturbations.
