  EASTBIO: Gut microbiota mediates distinct metabolic effects through dietary fibre fermentation.
  Dr A Ross, Prof P Morgan
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisors. Dr Alexander Ross (University of Aberdeen). https://www.abdn.ac.uk/rowett/research/alexander-ross.php. Professor Peter Morgan (University of Aberdeen).
  Getting to grips with severe asthma - a whole population approach using routinely acquired data.
  Prof S Turner, Dr D Miller
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There are 500,000 people in Scotland who have asthma. Asthma symptoms range from mild through moderate to severe. Severe asthma is not common but since it is associated with morbidity and mortality, severe asthma is a considerable burden to patients, society and the NHS.
  Using CRISPR genome editing to determine the effects of obesity and hypertension associated polymorphisms
  Dr A MacKenzie, Prof M Delibegovic
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Introduction. There is now little doubt that morbid conditions such as obesity, cardiovascular disease and diabetes are mechanistically linked.
  QUADRAT DTP: Environmental ancient DNA analysis of Lateglacial and Early Holocene contexts in Ireland and Scotland
  Dr L Girdland Flink, Dr G Plunkett
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to refine our understanding of Lateglacial and Early Holocene biodiversity and ecosystems in Scotland and Ireland using ancient DNA extracted from ancient sediments (sedimentary ancient DNA, or sedaDNA).
  EASTBIO: Dehalogenases from the brown algal genome model Ectocarpus siliculosus
  Prof F Kuepper, Dr H Deng, Prof M Jaspars
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisors. Professor Frithjof Kuepper (University of Aberdeen). http://www.abdn.ac.uk/oceanlab/research/frithjof-kuepper.php. Dr Hai Deng (University of Aberdeen).
  KESS2 Scholarship: The Biodiversity and Ecosystem Dynamics of higher delta-plain carboniferous swamps.
  Dr A. Papadopulos
Application Deadline: 20 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This a unique opportunity to conduct evolutionary and paleoecological research on one of the UK’s most well-preserved fossil forests at Brymbo, Wrexham.
  Investigation of a probiotic strain of Lactobacillus plantarum 2025 and the development of novel antibacterials
  Prof A Karlyshev
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The rise of multidrug resistant forms of microbial pathogens imposes a serious problem to public health worldwide. The rapid spread of antimicrobial resistance is associated with misuse of conventional antibiotics.
  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.
  Exposing drivers for parasite growth and virulence at the single cell level
  Prof A Maule, Dr P McVeigh, Dr N Marks
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Parasites infect one third of the human population, causing staggering levels of morbidity. They also blight food production systems by undermining plant and animal health globally.
  Gene mining useful biocatalysts from paleosols
  Prof C Allen, Dr C Law
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Paleosols are often sediments that are relatively unaffected by the Anthropocene. While there is much research on the microbial community structure found in urban and agricultural soils, these relatively undisturbed soils are very different in a geological and physical context.
  Genome scale evolution of biofilm contained Klebsiella pneumoniae in response to sub-lethal antibacterial stress exposure - development of novel biomarkers for near-patient testing
  Prof S Fanning, Prof B Gilmore
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Klebsiella pneumoniae is an opportunistic pathogenic bacterium found in several niches, being often encountered in a biofilm.
  How does biodiversity contribute to multiple forms of stability in stressed marine invertebrate communities?
  Prof M Emmerson, Dr S Helyar, Dr P Caplat
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. We now know that biodiversity is important because different species simultaneously contribute to multiple ecosystem processes through time and space (Gamfeldt et al.
  Microbial interactions in unique chemosynthetic ecosystems –an integrated ‘Omic approach
  Dr D Kumaresan, Prof J Mcgrath, Dr R Doherty
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Despite the lack of photosynthetically-fixed carbon, the Movile Cave ecosystem hosts a diverse range of invertebrates.
  Sustainable Wildlife Management: Socio-Economics Drivers & Implications of Conservation
  Dr M Bozzola, Dr J Houghton
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Wildlife conservation of endangered species has been a growing concern all over the world, as human populations grow and their need for space and resources multiplies.
  Temperature regulation of non-coding RNA and crop - rhizosphere interactions
  Dr J Dalzell, Dr FL Liu
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Crop plants manipulate rhizosphere interactions through the release of root exudates. Whilst root exudates can attract beneficial microbes, they are also exploited by pathogens and plant parasitic nematodes (PPNs).
