  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.
  Enhanced bio-minerals production using catalysts to accelerate resource recovery in wastewater treatment plants PhD
  Dr A Soares, Prof T Stephenson
Application Deadline: 30 April 2019
This PhD position offers an exciting opportunity to resolve key questions around nutrient resource recovery in waste streams in a project sponsored by EPSRC, Severn Trent and Microvi.
  PhD: Enhancing utilisation of alternative crops using fermentation
  Dr Y Lim
Applications accepted all year round
Supervisors. Yin Sze Lim(PI) (Biosciences, UNM), John Brameld (Biosciences, UK), Tim Parr(Biosciences, UK), Andy Salter (Biosciences, UK).
  Structural and functional studies of plant transporters involved in nutrient and glycan transport.
  Dr S Newstead
Application Deadline: 29 March 2019
We have several projects that involve investigating the molecular basis of nutrient and glycan transport in plant cells. One project focuses on the proton coupled nitrate transporter, NRT1.1, which is responsible for nitrate transport in root cells.
  Geochemical constraints on the hydrological restoration of groundwater-dependent wetlands in lowland catchments.
  Dr S Robinson, Dr A Duranel
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019
Healthy, functioning natural wetlands are critically important, yet the world is rapidly losing these habitats due to anthropogenic pressures.
  Dinoflagellate cysts and palaeoenvironmental change during Cretaceous oceanic anoxic events: a study of OAE1a
  Prof I Jarvis, Prof G Gillmore
Applications accepted all year round
This project will study Cretaceous dinoflagellate cysts. It seeks to understand relationships between dinocysts, a proxy for marine nutrient availability and organic zooplankton fertility, and episodes of black shale (petroleum source rock) deposition during Oceanic Anoxic Events (OAEs) in the mid-Cretaceous.
  Manipulation of the soil microbial community in stabilising SOM to improve soil function
  Dr S O'Rourke, Prof N Holden
Application Deadline: 1 April 2019
Sustainable food production is top of the global policy agenda.
  Can Glacial Flour Stimulate N Cycling in Croplands? - MScR in Global Environmental Challenges
  Dr J L Wadham, Dr F Sgouridis
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019
About the Project. Glacial flour produced from the erosive force of glaciers contains a multitude of minerals that if applied to cropland soils it could chemically weather in situ, potentially increasing soil fertility and reducing the need for chemical fertilisers.
  Unlocking past and present climatic and anthropogenic drivers of environmental change influencing Miri-Sibuti Coral Reefs National Park (Borneo, Malaysia)
  Prof J Zinke
Application Deadline: 13 June 2019
Study a set of unique coral cores covering up to 200 years of ocean climate history from Miri-Sibuti Coral Reefs National Park (MSCRNP).
  The genomic signatures of adaptation in harmful Sargassum blooms of the Caribbean Sea (CASE studentship)
  Dr J.H. Bothwell, Dr M Kapralov
Applications accepted all year round
Background. This CASE studentship will apply evolutionary genomic approaches to understand environmental adaptation in the Caribbean harmful bloom-forming macroalgae, Sargassum natans.
