  Mitigation, adaptation, built asset management and climate change
  Research Group: Future Cities Research Network
  Prof K Jones, Dr A Coday
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

  Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation in the NHS England: The Impact of Policies on Strategies and Processes
  Dr P Mothan-Hill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this PhD/DBA project is to map and evaluate the different policies, strategies and processes of the NHS England with regards to climate change adaptation and mitigation and to measure and suggest improvements on how the health sector contributes to two of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.
  (A*STAR) Unravelling the metabolic basis of Aspergillus fumigatus adaptation to combinatorial stress conditions
  Dr J Amich, Prof E Bignell
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Aspergillus fumigatus is an environmental saprophytic fungus that lives ubiquitously in the soil. This fungus can also infect the lungs of individuals with any kind of immune imbalance, causing a broad range of diseases collectively termed aspergillosis.
  Climate change and the development of built asset adaptation strategies

  Adaptation of Pseudomonas aeruginosa in people with bronchiectasis during chronic inhaled treatment
  Dr L Sherrard, Dr M Tunney
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Some individuals with bronchiectasis have respiratory infections with Pseudomonas aeruginosa which may lead to a worse clinical trajectory.
  Developing GWAS approaches to decipher the drivers of Bordetella pertussis adaptation during re-emergence
  Dr A Preston
Application Deadline: 8 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Genome rearrangement, the reordering of genes along the chromosome, is widespread among bacteria. It is thought to affect bacterial phenotype (behaviour) and contribute to their evolution and adaptation.
  The impact of somatic DNA variation on tree adaptation and evolution
  Dr M Catoni
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In virtually all living organisms, mutations of genomic DNA allow the generation of new traits that, if positively selected, drive adaptation to changing environments and contribute to evolution.
  The impact of somatic DNA variation on tree adaptation and evolution.
  Dr M Catoni, Dr E Luna-Diez
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In virtually all living organisms, mutations of genomic DNA allow the generation of new traits that, if positively selected, drive adaptation to changing environments and contribute to evolution.
  Resistance isn’t futile: Dissecting adaptation and antimicrobial resistance in pathogenic fungi
  Dr D Childers, Prof C Munro
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

What will you investigate?. We have only four major classes of antifungals to treat life-threatening fungal infections, which even with treatment will claim over 1 million lives this year.
  “Plant plasticity and local adaptation to new pollinators after range expansion“
  Dr M Castellanos
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Organisms can often rapidly adapt to changing environments. To understand this process, we need to study the potential of populations for rapid genetic responses and the contribution of other mechanisms, such as phenotypic plasticity.
  ONE Planet DTP - Quantifying the effects of climate change on Infrastructure Networks (OP20217)
  Dr S Wilkinson
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will use the latest generation of convection permitting climate models to answer the question “are we now at the stage where climate models can be used to ask multifaceted questions about how our societies may be directly affected by a changed climate?”.
  Sentence planning in bilingual speakers: Incrementality and adaptation in native and non-native language production.
  Dr A Konopka
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

How do speakers put thoughts into words? Native speakers normally plan what they are going to say incrementally.
  Bioinformatics: investigating the molecular basis of symbiosis and adaptation in corals and related cnidarian model organisms.
  Prof M Aranda, Prof A Nagarajan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are currently seeking a highly motivated candidate with strong bioinformatics background to pursue Ph.D. Our group applies functional and comparative genomics techniques to investigate the molecular basis of symbiosis and adaptation in corals and related cnidarian model organisms.
  QUADRAT DTP: Genomics approaches to explore the secrets of remarkable plants: Soil/root microbiome interaction and edaphic stress adaptation
  Dr C Meharg, Dr G Norton, Prof A Meharg
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The wild grasses Holcus lanatus, Agrostis capillaris and Deschampsia cespitosa are characterised by their extensive environmental range and resilience to environmental stress.
  Adaptation to oxidative stress in hepatitis C virus persistence: the role of IRES-dependent translation.
  Dr S-W Chan, Prof R Ford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) causes a clinically important disease affecting 3% of the world population (Chan 2014). About 75% of the infection will develop into chronic hepatitis, which can then progress into fibrosis, cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma.
