  Molecular mechanisms regulating wheat grain nutrient content and yield.
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr P Borrill
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Wheat is one of the world’s most important crops providing over 20 % of calories eaten by humankind.
  Leaf chemistry response to elevated CO2: decomposition and nutrient cycle impacts
  Dr R Bartlett, Dr L Batty
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The Birmingham Institute of Forest Research Free Air Carbon Enrichment Facility (BIFoR FACE) is an outdoor experiment studying the impact of elevated carbon dioxide (eCO2) on an established deciduous forest ecosystem through several multi-disciplinary research projects.
  NERC GW4 FRESH CDT: Defining nutrient sources and fluxes driving lowland drinking water reservoir ecosystem response
  Prof P Johnes
Application Deadline: 17 December 2018
Nutrient enrichment of surface freshwaters is the single largest stressor on freshwater ecosystems and the services they provide, throughout the developed world.
  Facilitating the circular economy in India’s food security: the social, economic and agronomic barriers and opportunities of sewage
  Dr A Gathorne-Hardy, Dr K V Heal
Application Deadline: 10 January 2019
Project summary. This interdisciplinary project combines social and environmental science to quantify the potential benefits of sewage for Indian agriculture, as well as understanding the social barriers to sewage use, and identifying opportunities to overcome these.
  Can microplastic pollution in freshwaters disrupt invertebrate mediated nutrient cycling?
  Dr R Quilliam, Dr E Lahive
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
We are seeking a highly motivated individual to carry out PhD research in the field of environmental pollution and toxicology, microplastics and freshwater ecology.
  The Interactions of Plant, Microbial and Physico-Chemical Controls on Carbon and Nutrient Cycling in the Rhizosphere
  Dr E Paterson, Dr B Thornton, Prof P Hallett
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Background; The rhizosphere, directly surrounding roots, is a hotspot of both biological activity, and of physical and chemical transformations, strongly impacting processes such as soil organic matter (SOM) decomposition and nutrient cycling.
  SCENARIO: Quantifying the flow and nutrient dynamic changes for a major flood relief scheme in the lower River Thames to better manage water quality and aquatic ecology
  Dr M Bowes, Mr M Clegg, Dr S Robinson, Dr M Hutchins
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
The Thames basin is very densely populated, containing one fifth of the UK population. It floods regularly, and climate change projections suggest that flooding will increase over the coming century, with 15,000 homes being at risk of inundation within the lower reaches of the catchment.
  The Ultimate Limiting Nutrient for Oceanic Primary Production
  Prof T Tyrrell, Prof C Moore, Dr M Lohan
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Programme website. http://inspire-dtp.ac.uk. Project Rationale.
  Living in the dark: Impact of winter warming on ecosystem stability in the terrestrial high Arctic
  Prof D Chadwick
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
The high Arctic is warming at an alarming rate, disrupting soil carbon, nutrient and hydrological cycles. This is resulting in increased soil microbial activity with subsequent increases in nutrient availability and hence plant productivity and nutrient losses to the wider environment.
  Nutritional Immunity in Drosophila - identifying the underlying nutrient-sensing control of host immune regulators and investigating how altered nutrients affect pathogen prosperity
  Dr M Piper, Dr L Wakeling
Applications accepted all year round
PhD Student Position. Nutritional Immunity in Drosophila. Monash University, Australia and Newcastle University, UK.
