  GW4 FRESH CDT PhD Studentship: Assessing the microbial contamination of freshwater systems by wastewater treatment plants using phage microbial source tracking
  Dr A Lanham
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.
  Integrated mathematical modelling and experimental research into interactions between microorganisms
  Dr J U Kreft
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our group aims to combine theoretical & experimental approaches to understand major problems in the ecology and evolution of microbes.
  Understanding the role that the RNA helicase UPF1 plays in sorting ribonucleoprotein (RNP) complexes and the mechanism by which this role of UPF1 might reduce cellular stress and cell degeneration.
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr S Brogna
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project’s specific objective is to study the molecular role(s) that the RNA helicase UPF1 plays in RNA processing. UPF1 is a key player in nonsense-mediated mRNA decay (NMD), it is universally conserved in eukaryotes and is essential to the development of many organisms [1].
  Understanding and exploiting stoichiogenomics to harness reactive nitrogen in sustainable food production systems
  Dr M Doherty, Dr Katherine Duncan
Application Deadline: 13 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Aquaculture is the fastest growing food production sector in the world, however global aquaculture needs to double in size over the next decade to keep pace with the ever-rising demand for quality protein.
  Engineering de novo microscopic ecologies to monitor and dissect disease spread
  Dr T Gorochowski, Dr S English
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding what regulates the spread of diseases in space and time is critical if we are to combat them effectively.
  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.
  Does plant pathogen adaptation in environmental reservoirs and secondary host affect its virulence and risk for transmission?
  Dr V Friman, Prof M Brockhurst, Dr D Jeffares
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Even though opportunistic plant pathogens must survive in various natural. environments during transmission between hosts, this crucial part of their life-.
