  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.
  Plant-microbial interactions: legume-rhizobial cover crops under drought and climate change
  Prof D Cameron, Dr E Harrison, Prof J Gray, Dr C Chater
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

To develop sustainable agriculture under climate change we need to tackle CO2 emissions and drought stress. Legume-rhizobial cover crops (leys) enhance carbon and nitrogen in soils, reducing vulnerability to drought and water pollution.
  Some theories are more equal than others: A Bayesian approach to glacial-interglacial changes in ocean carbon storage
  Dr A Marzocchi, Dr S Josey, Dr M Jansen
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Earth’s climate has undergone large transitions between cold “glacial” and warm “interglacial” stages.
  Characterising the effect of root secretions in vertical farming systems
  Prof C S Grierson, Prof RP Evershed
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Humanity must increase food production by 70% to feed 10 billion people and, according to the UN, more than 5 billion people could suffer water shortages by 2050 due to climate change.
  Epigenetic temperature sensing in plants
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Prof B H Davies, Prof A Whitehouse, Dr J Aspden
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The changing climate is already having a dramatic effect on the growth and development of the plants that support our entire civilisation.
  Mechanisms controlling the biogenesis and functions of chloroplasts in plants: protein transport, CHLORAD, and the ubiquitin-proteasome system
  Prof P Jarvis
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Link to group webpage. http://users.ox.ac.uk/~dops0547/. Our research is focused on the biogenesis and homeostasis of chloroplasts (and other plastids) in plants.
  (UKM GUP) Microbial genome engineering for sustainable production of bioplastic
  Dr A B Ramzi
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Perennial use of fossil fuel-derived products has brought about alarming concerns of climate change and environmental pollution particularly the harmful effects of recalcitrant waste such as synthetic plastics to the surrounding ecosystem.
