  NERC GW4+ DTP Projects 2020: (Living World, Changing Planet) Advancing the study of photosynthetic life in extreme cryo-environments
  Dr C Williamson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Permanently cold ecosystems make up more than 70% of the Earth’s biosphere, though paradoxically, the microorganisms that thrive in these extreme habitats are the most poorly understood.
  CO2 weathering of glacial till as nutrient source for Cryogenian biospheric oxygenation 720-635 million years ago (CO2-CryoBiophere)
  Dr E Chi Fru, Dr AC Smith, Dr E Bagshaw
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Background. It has been suggested that the release of glacial flour phosphate to the Neoproterozoic Ocean, 712-635 million years (Myr) ago, stimulated the Neoproterozoic Oxygenation Event (NOE) and emergence of photosynthetic eukaryotic algae to prominence.
  Microbial life and activity on glaciers and in Arctic soils
  Research Group: Earth Surface Science
  Dr J Bradley, Dr A Jungblut, Prof K Heppell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Arctic plays host to a diverse range of microorganisms, including bacteria, algae, and viruses.
  NERC GW4+ DTP Projects 2020: (Dynamic Earth, Living World, Changing Planet) Microbial life and carbon cycling in glaciers environments
  Dr P Sanchez-Baracaldo, Prof J L Wadham
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Probing novel pathways of carbon cycling in glaciers using metageomics. Carbon is essential for life and forms the building blocks of all organic compounds.
  River ecosystem responses to glacier loss
  Prof L Brown, Dr D Quincey
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change poses a considerable threat to the biodiversity of high altitude ecosystems, with Arctic alpine regions across the world already beginning to show clear responses to warming (Milner et al., 2017).
