  The evolution of symbiosis: understanding the ecological conditions that drive the emergence of stable symbiosis
  Prof M Brockhurst, Prof D Cameron, Dr A Beckerman, Dr AJ Wood
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Symbiosis—the living together of unlike organisms—has played a major role in the evolution of life on earth. Symbiosis is an important source of evolutionary innovation, allowing species to gain new functions and inhabit novel ecological niches, and caused several of the major evolutionary transitions (e.g.
  The evolution of symbiosis - testing the evolutionary theory of ecological conditions driving the emergence of symbioses
  Prof M Brockhurst
Applications accepted all year round
Symbiosis allows organisms to gain novel functions and exploit new ecological niches through the merger of once independent species.
  Unpicking a novel plant microbe symbiosis: bacteria as a source of odour in carrion flowers.
  Dr B Raymond, Dr R Griffiths
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Location. University of Exeter, Penryn Campus, Penryn, Cornwall TR10 9FE. This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  Global diversity and ecosystem functions of a newly discovered plant-microbe symbiosis
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Prof G Bending
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Project Highlights. We have discovered a previously unknown plant-microbial symbiosis with global distribution. You will unravel the diversity of the fungal symbionts involved, the factors which control their distribution, and determine its potential contribution to ecosystem processes through genome analysis.
  Building a microbial endophyte chassis for enhanced plant productivity
  Dr T Howard
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
The productivity and resilience of agricultural systems faces multiple challenges including from climate change, increasing demand and the need for more sustainable sources of fertilisers.
  The functional importance of plant-fungal interactions in agri-ecosystems
  Prof D Johnson, Dr M Semchenko
Applications accepted all year round
Most land plants have evolved symbioses with soil-borne mycorrhizal fungi, which provide nutritional benefits to both partners and are key to their fitness.
  Invertebrate-microbe interactions in the breakdown of the lignocellulose complex: implications for biotechnology, biodeterioration and biosphere function
  Prof S Cragg, Dr J.E.M Watts, Prof D Distel
Application Deadline: 24 February 2019
Applications are invited for a fully-funded three year PhD studentship to commence in October 2019. The supervisors are Prof. Simon Cragg, Dr.
  Thermodynamic modelling of alkali-activated materials
  Dr R Myers
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
The Industrial Ecology Team at the University of Edinburgh is seeking an outstanding PhD candidate to apply thermodynamic modelling to alkali-activated materials.
  The nature of mycorrhizal symbioses
  Prof M Tibbett
Applications accepted all year round
This project will build on recent work highlighting the changing view of the nature of the relationship between plant and fungus in the (near) ubiquitous symbiosis.
