  The interactive effects of climate change and plant species invasion on plant and microbial trait diversity
  Dr J Deslippe
Applications accepted all year round
This PhD project addresses the interactive effects of climate change and plant species invasion on plant and microbial trait diversity and ecosystem processes along elevational gradients in Tongariro National Park, New Zealand, with a particular emphasis on mycorrhizas and plant root traits.
  GOA PhD position for a Molecular plant physiologist
  Prof I NIJS, Prof H Asard
Applications accepted all year round
The Department of Biology of the University of Antwerp is seeking to fill 1 full-time (100%) PhD position within in a large scale multidisciplinary project, bringing together plant ecology, plant physiology, interaction of plants with soil microorganisms, transcriptome analysis, metabolomics and bio-informatics.
  Plant and Soil Microbiome Interactions
  Prof B Singh
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
The Hawkesbury Institute for the Environment (HIE) is a research institute within Western Sydney University. HIE has rapidly become a research leader in environmental and ecological research, with a strong reputation for delivering research outcomes of the highest quality.
  Towards more sustainable use of phosphorus in UK grasslands considering soil-plant interactions
  Dr V Niasar, Prof D Johnson, Dr S Lee
Applications accepted all year round
This ambitious project will lead to a major shift in how soil phosphorus (P), is managed in UK grasslands.
  How does restoration alter plant traits, ecosystem multifunctionality and service provisioning in wetlands?
  Dr J Deslippe, Dr S Tomscha
Applications accepted all year round
Wetland restoration projects provide opportunities to regain the ecosystem services that have been lost or degraded through land conversions.
  PhD in Geographical & Earth Sciences: How life and steel slag interact – physical, chemical and biological breakdown of slag and the implications for remediation
  Dr J MacDonald
Applications accepted all year round
Co-supervised by Professor Alistair Jump, University of Stirling. Worldwide, it is estimated that steelmaking produces up to 250 million tonnes of waste slag per year.
  Managing ash dieback disease using soil amendments including biochar
  Dr F Rayns, Dr K Dehnen-Schmutz
Application Deadline: 18 March 2019
Coventry University (CU) is inviting applications from suitably qualified graduates for a fully-funded PhD studentship. Ash dieback is an emerging disease that causes leaf loss and crown dieback in affected plants, often leading to tree death.
  Assessing the ecological vulnerability of natural defences and risks to agricultural land following seawater flooding
  Prof R Thompson, Dr M Hanley
Application Deadline: 26 March 2019
Erosion and flooding represent significant threats to our coastlines. In recent years, much progress has been made in understanding the role of natural habitats in providing coastal protection both in isolation and, in combination with, engineered sea defence structures.
  Soil aggregation and organic carbon allocation induced by plant and microbial activity in the rhizosphere
  Dr C Mueller
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
The project ‘Self differentiation of soil aggregation and organic carbon allocation induced by plant and microbial activity in the rhizosphere’ is part of the DFG priority program 2089 “Rhizosphere Spatiotemporal Organisation – a Key to Rhizosphere Functions” (www.ufz.de/spp-rhizosphere).
  PhD in Ecology and Environment: how ecosystems, and the species they contain, respond to environmental change and how to reduce and mitigate adverse impacts
  Dr D Childs
Applications accepted all year round
Environmental change threatens biodiversity, altering ecosystem processes and provision of ecosystem services. These environmental change pressures are accelerating due to growing human populations and accompanying climate change, land use, pollution and invasive species.
