  Deciphering algal metabolism of key marine chemicals involved in the sulfur biogeochemical cycle
  Dr T Tonon, Prof S J McQueen-Mason
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Marine ecosystems play major role in the biogeochemical cycling of several chemical elements, including sulfur. This is due to the metabolism of two key compounds, dimethylsulfoniopropionate (DMSP) and dimethyl sulfide (DMS).
  Designing a microbial platform for the biorefinery of Sargassum (brown algae) golden tides
  Dr T Tonon, Prof S J McQueen-Mason
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Oceans are the largest untapped growth opportunity for biomass. As an. illustration, golden tides due to the massive beaching of floating Sargassum.
  Developing phage therapy to control plant pathogenic bacteria in the rhizosphere microbiome
  Dr V Friman
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plant pathogenic bacteria cause considerable economic losses to food production systems. The main reason for this is that hardly any effective control methods exist to mitigate this damage.
  Development of magnetic nanoparticles for in vivo tissue regeneration
  Dr D Ungar, Prof P G Genever
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The regeneration of injured tissues can best be achieved through the action of appropriate stem cells that proliferate and differentiate to heal the injury.
  Discovering enzymes from plant alkaloid biosynthesis
  Dr B R Lichman, Dr W Unsworth
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants produce a variety of nitrogen-containing molecules known as alkaloids,. many of which are bioactive and used as medicines (e.g.
  Dissecting quantitative variation in the plant circadian clock
  Prof S J Davis, Dr D Ezer, Dr M Knight
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The seasonal timing of growth is critical for plant performance. The circadian. clock holds a key place in such seasonal adjustment as crop adaptation to new.
  Dissecting the mechanisms underlying sleep disturbances in Parkinson’s Disease
  Dr S Chawla, Dr C J H Elliott
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ageing and neurodegenerative disorders, such as Parkinson’s, are characterized by a progressive loss of neurons in particular brain regions leading to characteristic behavioural changes including cognitive decline and sleep disruption.
  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-.
  Ecological and evolutionary interactions in insect symbiont communities
  Dr J Ferrari
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most organisms host bacterial symbionts, which can substantially affect the biology of their hosts. For example, they can alter the host’s nutrition, reproduction, immunity and protect the host from environmental stresses.
  Ecological communities in a changing environment
  Prof C Dytham, Dr M van der Woude, Dr A J Wood
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In an era of rapid environmental change predicting the future of ecological communities is vital if mitigation or adaptation is to be successful.
