  Tropical matrix algebra and representations
  Dr z Izhakian, Dr R Hepworth
Applications accepted all year round
Tropical matrices are matrices over the max-plus semiring - the real numbers equipped with the operations of maximum and summation.
  Impacts of land-use change on tropical biodiversity
  Dr D Edwards
Applications accepted all year round
Tropical land-use change is a core driver of the global extinction and climate change crises. In the Edwards lab, we use field research, economic assessment and rigorous statistical analyses to determine the impacts of tropical land-use change on biodiversity, carbon stocks and other ecosystem services.
  Functional Significance of Al hyper-accumulation in Tropical Forest Trees
  Dr D Burslem, Dr Y Arn Teh
Applications accepted all year round
Numerous plant species take up and store high concentrations of Al from the soil system, despite the toxicity of Al3+ to plant metabolism.
  DTC MATH 8 - Tropical geometry and scheme theory
  Dr J Giansiracusa
Applications accepted all year round
Over past few years Giansiracusa and others have initiated a new foundation for the type of polyhedral geometry known as tropical geometry; this foundation is rooted in the combinatorial theory of matroids, the algebra of idempotent semirings, and Grothendieck’s theory of schemes.
  Effect of oxidative stress on the biochemistry of dimethylsulfoniopropionate (DMSP)-lyase enzymes in tropical reef organisms - to start October 2019 - for an MSc by Dissertation (MSD
  Dr M Steinke, Dr M Hough, Dr J Worrall
Application Deadline: 24 April 2019
Rationale. Tropical coral reefs are a substantial source of the climate-cooling gas dimethyl sulfide (DMS). The major precursor of DMS is the secondary metabolite dimethylsulfoniopropionate (DMSP) that is biosynthesised to high concentrations in symbiotic dinoflagellates of the tropical genus Symbiodinium [1].
  PhD: Winged Bean – a new soybean for the tropics?
  Dr S Mayes
Applications accepted all year round
Supervisors. Sean Mayes (PI, Biosciences, UK), John Brameld (Biosciences, UK), Wai Kuan Ho (UNM), Festo Massawe (Biosciences, UNM).
  Medical Research Foundation National PhD Training Programme in Antimicrobial Resistance Research: Promoting Use and Non-Use: Medicines for TB and other Bacteria in an Era of AMR
  Dr J Dixon, Prof M Gorsky
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
The containment of resistance in tuberculosis has historically been premised on the very tight control of TB medicines, yet in many countries such as South Africa this has been unsuccessful.
  Unlocking past and present climatic and anthropogenic drivers of environmental change influencing Miri-Sibuti Coral Reefs National Park (Borneo, Malaysia)
  Prof J Zinke
Applications accepted all year round
Study a set of unique coral cores covering up to 200 years of ocean climate history from Miri-Sibuti Coral Reefs National Park (MSCRNP).
  Medical Research Foundation 4-year National PhD Training Programme in Antimicrobial Resistance Research
The Medical Research Foundation National PhD Training Programme in Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) Research is the first nationwide PhD training programme to tackle AMR – one of the greatest emerging threats to global human health.
  Cancer and comorbidity: impact of comorbid conditions on equity of access and safety and outcomes of cancer treatments
  Dr J van der Meulen, Mr A Hutchings, Prof D Cromwell, Prof E Nolte
Application Deadline: 27 March 2019
The configuration of cancer services is rapidly changing. Service delivery is being re-designed in order to diagnose cancer earlier, accelerate access to treatment, improve patients’ experience, reduce side-effect of treatment and enhance cures for cancer.
