Ecology PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships in Manchester

We have 10 Ecology PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships in Manchester

The role of regulatory evolution in phage ecology

The regulation of genes crucially determines the fitness and function of all organisms. This is particularly relevant for bacteriophages, the viruses that infect bacteria, as they rely on a tightly scheduled program for a successful infection. Read more

Modelling the ecology and evolution of microbial communities

From the human gut to deep-sea sediments, microbial communities – or microbiomes – colonize virtually every habitat on earth. These microbiomes are central to ecosystem functioning and to host health, and therefore it is essential that we understand how and why they change over time. Read more

Optimizing phage-antibiotic-synergies to kill bacterial pathogens

Phage therapy, the use of viruses that only infect bacterial cells and kill them, is a promising potential solution to the antimicrobial resistance crisis that is threatening modern medicine1. Read more

Investigating the effect of plastics recycling on nanoplastic production in packaging applications

Nanoplastics, defined as plastic particles measuring less than 1000 nanometres, have emerged as a significant concern due to their ability to infiltrate ecosystems, posing potential risks to the environment. Read more

Postgraduate Research at the School of Science, Engineering and Environment, University of Salford

At the School of Science, Engineering and Environment (SEE), University of Salford more than 280 postgraduate researchers (PGRs) and 200 academics conduct research that was rated in the 2021 Research Excellent Framework (REF) as “world-leading or internationally excellent” (78%) and as generating “outstanding innovative impact” (88%).
