  Nitrogen cycling in a subsurface serpentinising system – an analogue for early life on Earth
  Dr P Lam, Dr J Matter
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. The emergence of life on Earth required abiotic syntheses of energy and organic compounds. For this, serpentinization –water-rock reactions coupling oxidation of ferrous iron to the generation of hydrogen –has in recent years been considered a key mechanism[1].
  The origin of biomineralisation: oxygenation, nutrient cycling, and seawater chemistry
  Dr R Wood, Dr L Pichevin
Application Deadline: 9 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Summary. What were the triggers that allowed animals to form skeletons in the Cambrian Explosion?. Project background. Animals with skeletons or shells dominate our seas today, and play a key role in the long term carbon cycle.
  Plankton size, climate and ocean function through time.
  Dr S Gibbs, Dr B Ward, Prof P Bown
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Plankton are fundamental to life on Earth as the base of the marine food web and an important carbon sink.
  Next generation conservation genetics at sea: detecting and conserving adaptive potential
  Prof AR Hoelzel, Prof OE Gaggiotti
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

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.
