  Herbivore and mycorrhizal mediation of carbon cycling in heather moorlands
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Dr S M Sait, Prof K. Field, Prof P Chapman
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The multiple drivers of environmental change, such as climate change and pollution, have led to widespread negative impacts on ecosystem functioning and services that are critical for human well-being.
  SEESALT: Novel ways to ’SEE’ coastal ’SALT’ marshes using low-cost drones and sensors
  Dr D Green, Dr D Mauquoy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Saltmarshes are found extensively along low wave energy coastlines resulting from fine sediment accumulation and vegetation establishment.
  The impact of deforestation on an obligate ant/plant farming symbiosis
  Dr G Chomicki
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are seeking a highly motivated PhD student to join this exciting project on the macroevolution of mutualisms. Students with background including computer science, applied mathematics and environmental science are encouraged to apply in addition to those from pure biological sciences.
  Distribution modelling and the management and conservation of European ectomycorrhizal communities
  Dr M Bidartondo, Dr C D L Orme
Application Deadline: 23 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project, the student will develop cutting-edge distributional models of dominant ectomycorrhizal (ECM) fungal species across Europe and establish vital practice and policy recommendations for the monitoring, management and conservation of these ecologically critical organisms.
  Reconstructing microbial genomes from environmental samples and their impact ongreenhouse gases (HILDEBRANDQ20DTP1)
  Dr F Hildebrand
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are looking for a highly motivated student, interested in Bioinformatics (metagenomics), global warming, and metabolism-centric interpretation of ecosystems.
  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.
  Palaeoecology of leaf chemistry
  Dr F Gill, Dr D Hill, Dr K Bacon
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants have been central to life on land for over 400 million years, during which time environmental conditions have changed dramatically.
  BBSRC White Rose DTP Studentship - Activators of microbial enzymes for enhanced C capture and decreased pathogen populations in arable soils.
  Prof J Leake, Prof D J Beerling, Dr D Epihov, Prof J Ton
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A single gram of arable soil can contain more than a billion active bacteria and archaea cells that together with fungi form the soil microbiome, which provides a diverse range of biogeochemical functions.
  That sinking feeling - how do marine diatoms actively control sinking rates?
  Dr G Wheeler, Prof C Moore, Dr K Helliwell
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Diatoms are one of the most important groups of phytoplankton in our oceans and make a major contribution to the global carbon cycle.
