Microalgal Biorefineries

A major contemporary challenge in industrial manufacturing is the development of sustainable production processes. This includes reduced resource consumption and CO2 generation, and energy efficient operations with maximised product outputs. Read more

Algal Bioplastics

Single use plastic is a major environmental concern that is urgently in need of innovative solutions. Microalgae are photosynthetic organisms that can be employed to develop processes that are environmentally sustainable. Read more

Rebuilding soil quality and crop performance in arable farming by herbal leys

Soil degradation is a major global threat to agricultural sustainability. Intensively cultivated arable soils that have been used to grow annual crops for decades often suffer from low organic matter content and weak structure and depleted populations of soil organisms. Read more

Population ecology in a changing world.

We invite applications for a PhD in the area of population ecology and demographic modelling. Our research tackles problems at the pure and applied ends of the spectrum. Read more

PhD in Palynology

Professor Charles Wellman supervises self-funded Ph.D. research projects in Palynology hosted by the Centre for Palynology. These can encompass taxonomic, biostratigraphical or palaeoenvironmental (palynofacies) analysis. Read more

PhD in evolutionary biology - modelling the evolution of interactions between species

Evolutionary biology is underpinned by models for the evolution of species and their traits. The growing body of phylogenetic information, as well as increases in computational power allows us to develop and test novel models and theories of evolution. Read more

PhD in the genomics of rapid adaptation in plants

We invite applications for a PhD in the area of genomics and rapid adaptation in plants. Our research combines cutting-edge genomic techniques, comparative analyses and experimental approaches to understand how organisms adapt to their environment. Read more

PhD in Applied Ecology - Developing data-driven modelling in Applied Ecology

We live in a changing world and a challenge for ecologists is to forecast how such changes will impact on natural populations. We tackle problems such as forest management, weed invasions and predicting the impacts of land management on populations of plants, insects and birds. Read more

PhD in agricultural biology - forecasting management and economics of climate change

The world faces a major challenge to ensure the security of food supplies in the face of threats resulting from climate change, growing population and the development of resistance to pesticides. Read more
