  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.
  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.
  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.
  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.
  Quantifying temperature change in the sub-Antarctic (NERC GW4+ DTP)
  Dr B.D.A. Naafs, Dr A Gallego-Sala, Dr S Roberts
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

  SCENARIO - Soil microbial carbon metabolism for climate positive soils
  Dr E J Shaw, Dr M Redmile-Gordon, Dr R Griffiths
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Soils are essential to human well-being because they perform multiple functions that underpin the provision of ecosystem services that sustain life and regulate climate.
  GW4 FRESH CDT PhD Studentship: Chemical and ecological effects of combined sewer overflows on rivers
  Prof J Hofman
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Centre for Doctoral Training in Freshwater Biosciences and Sustainability (GW4 FRESH CDT) which is offering up to 14 studentships to start in September 2020.
  DMSP production in Earths highest producers (TODDU20DTP)
  Dr J Todd, Dr A Truman
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Dimethylsulfoniopropionate (DMSP) is one of the Earth’s most abundant organosulfur compounds. It is an antistress compound with key roles in global nutrient and sulfur cycling, signalling and climate.
  Mechanisms controlling the biogenesis and functions of chloroplasts in plants: protein transport, CHLORAD, and the ubiquitin-proteasome system
