  Archaeal polyphosphate cycling: novel enzymes to drive new technologies
  Dr J Chin, Prof J Mcgrath
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Phosphorus is a globally important resource used particularly by the agricultural industry in fertiliser, enabling the growth of enough crops to feed the world’s increasing population.
  EASTBIO: Microbial carbon cycling traits in soils across land use gradients.
  Dr A Malik, Prof E Paterson, Dr C Gubry-Rangin
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisors. Dr Ashish A Malik (University of Aberdeen). https://www.ashishmalik.co. Professor Eric Paterson (The James Hutton Institute).
  Extreme weather events exacerbate nitrous oxide emissions from soil (Extreme-N2O)
  Prof D Chadwick, Prof D Jones
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Accurate estimates of agricultural greenhouse gas emissions underpin national land use policy and subsequent targets, e.g. the recent UK target for net zero carbon emissions by 2050.
  The impact of deforestation on an obligate ant/plant farming symbiosis
  Dr G Chomicki
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are seeking a highly motivated PhD student to join this exciting project on the macroevolution of mutualisms. Students with background including computer science, applied mathematics and environmental science are encouraged to apply in addition to those from pure biological sciences.
  Nitrogen controls on ecosystem functioning in neotropical dry forests
  Prof M Rufino, Dr J Whitaker
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Global agriculture is rapidly expanding in response to the growing demand for food, with ‘agricultural frontiers’, such as dry and fertile lands of the Gran Chaco in South America contributing to this need.
  Reconstructing microbial genomes from environmental samples and their impact ongreenhouse gases (HILDEBRANDQ20DTP1)
  Dr F Hildebrand
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are looking for a highly motivated student, interested in Bioinformatics (metagenomics), global warming, and metabolism-centric interpretation of ecosystems.
  The rice paddy microbiome and its impact on plant mineral nutrition
  Dr C Meharg, Prof A Meharg
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Rice is an important cereal crop.
  Reducing Agricultural Greenhouse Gas Emissions ‘RAGGE’
  Dr T Mauchline, Prof N Ostle
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nitrogen inputs into agricultural systems are an essential requirement for healthy, high yielding crop production, but they can also result in the release of excess N either by leaching or by emission of the highly reactive greenhouse gas (GHG) N2O.
  Assembly of nitrous oxide reductase, a key enzyme in climate change (LEBRUNU20DTP1)
  Prof N Le Brun, Dr J Balk
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nitrous oxide (N2O) is a greenhouse gas with a ~300 fold greater global warming potential than CO2 and an ability to deplete stratospheric ozone.
  Facilitating the circular economy in India’s food security: the social, economic and agronomic barriers and opportunities of wastewater
  Dr K V Heal, Dr A Gathorne-Hardy, Dr H Gorringe
Application Deadline: 9 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project summary. This interdisciplinary project combines environmental and social science to quantify the potential benefits of wastewater for Indian agriculture, as well as understanding the social barriers to wastewater use, and identifying opportunities to overcome these.
