  Chemical biology meets microbiology to combat climate change (GATESU20DTP)
  Dr A Gates, Dr Z Waller
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

As well as carbon dioxide (CO2), other important climate-active gases are known to drive global warming. Importantly, nitrous oxide (N2O), is a greenhouse gas with 300-times greater global warming power than CO2 and it also contributes to the destruction of the ozone layer.

  Dr C Edwards
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inadequate protein nutrition is a major health concern to children and the institutionalised elderly. Although animal proteins are the best source of protein nutrition, 76% of the global population currently rely on plant protein.

Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Field studies, ecogeography, geographic information systems and estimation of patterns of genetic diversity, IUCN taxonomic and genetic threat assessment will help elucidate conservation strategies and taxonomic clarity of critically endanged plant species.

Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A highly motivated student is sought to train as a statistical geneticist working on the dissection of complex trait phenotypes in human, plant and animal populations into their underlying genetic components.
  EASTBIO The genetic basis of helminth-specific immune responses in wild Soay sheep (Ovis aries)
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr S Johnston, Dr T McNeilly, Prof D Nussey
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Individual differences in immune responses are widely observed in nature and are likely to be a major factor underlying variation in disease resistance, health and evolutionary fitness.
  Post-translational regulation of transcription dynamics in plant immunity
  Research Group: Institute of Molecular Plant Sciences
  Dr S Spoel, Dr E Bayne
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Precise regulation of gene transcription is vital for all organisms. In eukaryotes, dynamic changes in gene transcription orchestrate cell development and cellular responses to the ever changing environment.
  PhD Studentship Opportunity: Investigation of molecular regulations of protein production in Lemna
  Dr C Barrero-Sicilia, Dr Y Huang
Application Deadline: 22 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University invites applications for a PhD student to join our Hertfordshire Knowledge Exchange Partnership (HKEP) scheme which is 1-year industrial placement followed by a 3-year PhD studentship funded jointly by the European Regional Development Fund, Hertfordshire Local Enterprise Partnership and DryGro.
  Climate Resilient Seed Systems in Africa
  Dr S Whitfield, Prof A Challinor, Dr S Kepinski
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Crop breeding is a key area of investment in African agricultural development, as supported by the Comprehensive Africa Agricultural Development Platform and large donor funded programmes (such as those of the CGIAR and the BMGF) (Whitfield, 2015).
  Quantifying the relative importance of extrinsic and intrinsic drivers of individual behaviour and habitat use of hefted sheep on a biodiverse but fragile upland ecosystem
  Dr S D Twiss, Dr R Baxter
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The unenclosed upland areas of the UK are internationally important for wildlife and of high nature conservation value. However, these fragile habitats are subject to various threats including the impacts of climate change, atmospheric pollution deposition, acid rain and grazing pressures.
  Targeting ERK5 to enhance the DNA damage response to radiotherapy and chemotherapy
  Dr K Finegan, Dr C Demonacos
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

ERK5 is a signalling protein that enables cells to transduce extracellular signals into responses. It is expressed in all tissues and is up-regulated in tumours.
  Nutrigenomics and the resilience of bees in a changing climate
  Dr J Gilbert
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ecosystem stability and global food security depend upon healthy populations of bees, our foremost pollinators. Bees provide pollination services worth hundreds of billions of pounds annually.
  EASTBIO: Live fast, die young: testing the mechanisms linking risk-taking behaviour to the rate of ageing in a wild bird.
  Dr P Bize, Prof K Spencer
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisors. Dr Pierre Bize (University of Aberdeen). http://www.abdn.ac.uk/sbs/people/profiles/pierre.bize. Professor Karen Spencer (University of St.
  Novel Control Method for Weeds and Biology affecting Sports Turf
  Dr L Crockford
Application Deadline: 13 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The All England Lawn Tennis Club Three Year PhD Studentship at Harper Adams University. Harper Adams University is the UK’s leading agri-food university, with a very active research programme addressing themes such as the soil sustainability and integrated pest management.
  International Ph.D. Programs in the Life Sciences

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Life Science Zurich Graduate School consists of several highly competitive Ph.D. programs. We are run jointly by the ETH Zurich and the University of Zurich.
  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.
  Type 1 Resistant Starch: A journey through the gut (EDWARDSQ20CASE)
  Dr C Edwards
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most adults in the UK are overweight or obese, and the food industry are urgently seeking to develop healthier processed foods. One solution is to replace ‘available starch’ in the diet with ‘resistant starch’ that is not digested to glucose in the upper-gut.
  Long distance drone tracking of key pollinators in agricultural and natural landscapes
  Dr P Cross, Dr J Lim
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many plant species, including numerous agricultural ones, depend on pollinator services; yet agricultural intensification and urbanisation have caused habitat loss and fragmentation, leading to substantial declines of some pollinators.
