  SCENARIO - Climate change and harmful algal growth using laboratory experiments, satellite remote sensing and biogeochemical modelling
  Dr S Roy
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Marine harmful algae cause huge economic and ecological damage through the production of toxins and removal of oxygen from marine waters, affecting the marine wildlife and commercial aquaculture.
  Designing a microbial platform for the biorefinery of Sargassum (brown algae) golden tides
  Dr T Tonon, Prof S J McQueen-Mason
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Oceans are the largest untapped growth opportunity for biomass. As an. illustration, golden tides due to the massive beaching of floating Sargassum.
  GW4 FRESH CDT studentship: Cascading effects of micro- and nano-plastics on lipid quality and transfer through freshwater planktonic ecosystems
  Dr IA Guschina, Prof S Ormerod
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite growing global concern about the occurrence of small plastic particles (nano- and micro-plastics) in the world’s seas, rivers and lakes, there has been limited research into understanding any adverse effects on living organisms.
  Comparative analysis of carbon assimilation pathways in key species of marine phytoplankton
  Dr T Tonon, Dr L Mackinder
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Seas and oceans cover more than 70% of our planet, contribute to half of the primary production on Earth, and are responsible for cycling half of the carbon fixed by living organisms.
  Evolution and biochemistry of photosynthesis - electron transfer reactions, renewable energy production, biotechnology, and chloroplast genomes
  Prof C J Howe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The common theme of our work is the biochemistry and evolution of photosynthesis.
  How will marine microalgae react to a changing nitrogen balance in the ocean?
  Dr M Fitzsimons, Dr S Ussher
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microalgae are major components of marine ecosystems worldwide, providing essential ecosystem services including using carbon dioxide and producing oxygen.
  Unravelling the function of the unusual antioxidant ergothioneine in plants and photosynthetic protists. PhD in Biosciences (SWBio DTP)
  Prof N Smirnoff
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Prof Nicolas Smirnoff, Department of Biosciences, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter.
  Unraveling mechanisms for phosphate acquisition from soil and waste water via structural characterization of cellular components
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr Y Benitez-Alfonso, Prof A Baker, Dr R Frank
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Phosphorus is essential to all living organisms but limited in its biological active form while at the same time representing a major contaminant in waste water.
  Inter-partner communication in the cnidarian-dinoflagellate symbiosis and the adaptability of corals to climate change
  Prof S Davy
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We will test whether the success of the coral-algal symbiosis, and hence coral reef ecosystems as a whole, is determined by molecular ‘cross-talk’ between the partners that has the potential to rid the coral of unwanted, less beneficial algae while retaining beneficial ones.
  The contradictory functions of carotenoid-based light-harvesters: Understanding energy harvesting and dissipation in the Fucoxanthin-Chlorophyll Protein (FCP)
  Dr C Duffy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The School of Biological and Chemical Sciences at Queen Mary is one of the UK’s elite research centres, according to the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF).
  NERC GW4+ DTP Projects 2020: (Living World, Changing Planet) Advancing the study of photosynthetic life in extreme cryo-environments
  Dr C Williamson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Permanently cold ecosystems make up more than 70% of the Earth’s biosphere, though paradoxically, the microorganisms that thrive in these extreme habitats are the most poorly understood.
  Investigating Photosynthesis in Nannochloropsis – An Important Algal Genus for Biofuel Production
  Dr D J Gilmour
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the key insights from phylogenetic studies of eukaryotic microorganisms is the enormous diversity within the microalgal group with green algae being similar to plants and other groups such as diatoms being very different.
  Investigating Photosynthesis in Nannochloropsis – An Important Algal Genus for Biofuel Production
  Dr D J Gilmour
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the key insights from phylogenetic studies of eukaryotic microorganisms is the enormous diversity within the microalgal group with green algae being similar to plants and other groups such as diatoms being very different.
  Deciphering algal metabolism of key marine chemicals involved in the sulfur biogeochemical cycle
  Dr T Tonon, Prof S J McQueen-Mason
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Marine ecosystems play major role in the biogeochemical cycling of several chemical elements, including sulfur. This is due to the metabolism of two key compounds, dimethylsulfoniopropionate (DMSP) and dimethyl sulfide (DMS).
  NERC GW4+ DTP studentship: Understanding the fate and potential impact of nano-plastics in freshwater organisms and ecosystems
  Prof I Durance, Prof P Borri
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is a growing realisation that the widespread use and degradation of plastics has created a legacy of plastic pollution. Mass balance studies have suggested that a large proportion of release plastics waste may now be present as micro- nano-scale particles.
