  Systems off-balance? Exploring the cumulative impacts of enriched coastal waters, altered nutrient ratios and a warming climate on coastal phytoplankton communities (MALINUENV20ARIES)
  Dr G Malin, Dr N Greenwood, Dr M Devlin
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND. Coastal eutrophication is a worldwide issue with negative cultural and environmental impacts and its assessment is a formal requirement of several European Directives.
  CO2 weathering of glacial till as nutrient source for Cryogenian biospheric oxygenation 720-635 million years ago (CO2-CryoBiophere)
  Dr E Chi Fru, Dr AC Smith, Dr E Bagshaw
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Background. It has been suggested that the release of glacial flour phosphate to the Neoproterozoic Ocean, 712-635 million years (Myr) ago, stimulated the Neoproterozoic Oxygenation Event (NOE) and emergence of photosynthetic eukaryotic algae to prominence.
  The Ultimate Limiting Nutrient for Oceanic Primary Production
  Prof T Tyrrell, Dr A Yool, Dr J Wilson
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. In order to know how Earth’s climate system works, we need to understand what controls oceanic primary production.
  Precision nutrition in poultry: Examining the interplay between enzyme, vitamin and trace mineral supplements
  Dr D Scholey, Dr E Burton
Application Deadline: 14 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

An exciting opportunity has arisen through a 3.5 year, fully funded poultry nutrition PhD studentship jointly funded by Alltech and Nottingham Trent University; primarily based at the University’s Brackenhurst Campus.
  Herbivore and mycorrhizal mediation of carbon cycling in heather moorlands
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Dr S M Sait, Prof K. Field, Prof P Chapman
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The multiple drivers of environmental change, such as climate change and pollution, have led to widespread negative impacts on ecosystem functioning and services that are critical for human well-being.
  Phytoplankton nutrient sensing mechanisms: key to thriving in coastal ecosystems?
  Dr K Helliwell, Dr J Robidart, Prof C Moore, Dr A Rees
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Marine phytoplankton play vital roles in regulating the global climate, contributing almost half of net primary production.
  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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Investigation of a Novel Regulator of Plant Yield and Fitness in Plants
  Dr P Gallois, Dr G Johnson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Autophagy is an incredibly important and highly conserved process across eukaryotes and involves the regulated destruction of unnecessary or damaged components within the cell.
  The role of soil organic carbon in soil function dynamics
  Dr S O'Rourke
Application Deadline: 1 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sustainable food production is top of the global policy agenda.
  Innovative fertiliser solutions to combat Striga on smallholder sorghum farms in Africa
  Dr J Rodenburg
Application Deadline: 10 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sorghum is a staple food and fodder crop grown by millions of resource-poor smallholders in Africa. It has a broad environmental adaptation due to its salt, drought and heat tolerance, and is therefore regarded a climate-smart crop of strategic importance for future food security.
