  Caustic response: understanding plant adaptation to high pH and its application to remediation of alkaline industrial residues.
  Research Group: Centre for Plant Sciences
  Prof A Baker, Prof D I Stewart
Application Deadline: 1 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Motivation. Around two billion tonnes of alkaline residues are produced globally each year by industrial processes. These residues are frequently stored in waste piles or landfills, and can be an environmental hazard if allowed to generate dust or if rainwater infiltrates the waste (Gomes et al 2016).
  Molecular, biochemical and developmental analysis of root traits for low P adaptation in foxtail millet.
  Prof A Baker, Dr S Kepinski
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Phosphorus is an essential macronutrient for plant growth and cannot be replaced by any other element. It is the second most limiting nutrient after N.
  Effects of microplastic on ecosystem services in salt marshes (NOLTESU20SCI50)
  Dr S Nolte, Dr T Tolhurst, Dr A Mayes
Application Deadline: 24 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microplastic (MP) pollution has generated huge scientific and public interest in recent years. Early research mainly focused on the marine environment, studying MP abundance and impacts on fauna.
