  Developing Sustainable Soil Ecosystems: Microbial Ecology and Biogeochemistry of Nitrogen Cycling in Artificial Soils
  Dr S Lengger, Dr M Fitzsimons
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Healthy soils are the basis for sustainable agriculture, but they are threatened by erosion, nutrient loss, and climate change.
  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).
  Linking Microbial Physiology with Carbon Transformations in Peatlands Under Land Use Change
  Dr A Malik, Dr R Andersen, Dr R Artz, Prof J Smith
Application Deadline: 9 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Significant amount of carbon is stored in soils, particularly in peatlands. Increasing food and energy needs have led to intensive land use practices that deplete soil organic carbon (SOC) stores.
  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.
  Investigating the mechanisms contributing to placental dysfunction in pregnancies complicated by diabetes: role of the hexosamine biosynthetic pathway
  Prof M Westwood, Prof J Aplin, Dr J Myers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Maternal diabetes is a major risk factor for fetal overgrowth, which is associated with poor outcomes including stillbirth, neonatal morbidity and increased risk of diabetes in adulthood.
  Markers of Expertise in Sport and Physical Activity: Triangulated Approaches
  Dr D Broadbent, Dr D Bishop, Dr A Cocks, Dr A Nowicky
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to adopt a mixed methods approach to determine the various factors – innate, learnt, and environmental – that ultimately contribute to skill acquisition and/or expertise within a specified domain.
  CO2 weathering of glacial till as nutrient source for Cryogenian biospheric oxygenation 720-635 million years ago (CO2-CryoBiophere)
  Dr E Chi Fru, Dr AC Smith, Dr E Bagshaw
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Background. It has been suggested that the release of glacial flour phosphate to the Neoproterozoic Ocean, 712-635 million years (Myr) ago, stimulated the Neoproterozoic Oxygenation Event (NOE) and emergence of photosynthetic eukaryotic algae to prominence.
  Point-of-care diagnosis of opportunistic fungal infections using innovative molecular biosensors.
  Dr J Tovar
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human fungal infections have emerged as one of the most pressing global health problems in recent years.
  Total Atmospheric Emissions from the Biosphere
  Dr W J Bloss, Dr L Kramer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The dominant source of hydrocarbons to the atmosphere is vegetation – biogenic volatile organic compounds or BVOCs. In the atmosphere, BVOCs undergo chemical processing, leading to the formation of secondary pollutants such as ozone and organic aerosol particles, affecting human and environmental health and climate.
  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.
