  Revealing a cryptic organosulfur cycle in benthic marine environments using microbiology and metagenomics
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr H Schaefer, Dr Y Chen
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Project Highlights. Microbiology of cycling of climatically active aerosol precursors and trace gases. Apply metagenomics approaches to organosulfur cycling.
  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.
  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?.
  Quantifying synergies between multiple stressors and biodiversity loss on the functioning of freshwater microbial communities. NERC FRESH CDT studentship, PhD in Biosciences
  Dr G Yvon-Durocher
Application Deadline: 17 December 2018
Lead Supervisor. Professor Gabriel Yvon-Durocher, University of Exeter. Additional Supervisors. Dr Jeremy Biggs, Freshwater Habitates Trust.
  Unravelling evolutionary mechanisms of phage-bacteria interactions in spatially structured microbial communities
  Dr V Friman, Dr P Fogg, Dr S D Johnson
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The rapid rise of antibiotic resistance has made many clinical antibiotics ineffective. One way to increase the efficiency of antibiotics is to use them in combination with bacteria-specific viruses, phages.
  Antibiotics in agriculture - Assessing the impacts of wastewater irrigation on soil health, antimicrobial resistance and crop production
  Dr S Toet, Prof A Boxall, Dr A Singer
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Why is this project important?. Large amounts of antibiotics are used globally for human and animal treatment. These substances are released to agricultural soils directly through animal excreta, via manure or sewage sludge when applied as fertiliser, and by irrigation of wastewater.
  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.
  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.
  aqAMR: AMR at the interface of the agricultural and aquatic environments
  Dr T Connor, Prof P Kille
Application Deadline: 17 December 2018
The interface between aquatic systems, agricultural environments involved in livestock farming and human habitation represents, on a microbial ecology level, an interface between microbial populations that are all under different antimicrobial selection pressures.
  Transcriptional and environmental control of bacterial nitrous oxide emissions (ROWLEYUBIO19ARIES)
  Dr G Rowley, Dr J Todd, Prof L Baggs
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Background. Nitrous oxide (N2O) is a potent greenhouse gas. Although atmospheric N2O levels are lower than that of CO2, it has a 300-fold greater global warming potential, and represents around 10% of total global greenhouse gas emissions.
