  Some like it hot: how mismatch between host and pathogen thermal ecology influences adaptation to global change
  Dr M Hall
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Global change is predicted to result in both rapidly changing environments and dramatic changes in disease outbreaks. Key to predicting winners and losers under the nexus of infection and global change is any mismatch between hosts and pathogens in their thermal tolerances and adaptive potential.
  Data mining for microbial adaptation to climate change - MScR in Global Environmental Challenges
  Dr G Barker
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

About the Project. Microbes are key members of nutrient and energy cycles in all global ecosystems. Whole meta genome DNA sequencing is increasingly used to characterise microbial ecosystems and vast amounts of data are deposited in the public domain every year.
  Peatland microbes and molecules: the chicken or the egg dilemma
  Dr N Bell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project background. Peatlands are organic matter rich soils that provide countless benefits and ecological services. They represent the largest terrestrial carbon store, containing twice as much carbon as the entire forest biomass on this planet.
  Metaproteomics Approaches to Uncover Ecosystem Function in Aquatic Environments
  Dr J Pandhal, Dr A Beckerman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recently, it has become increasingly apparent that quantifying the molecular cellular components (e.g. DNA, mRNA, proteins and metabolites) in environmental samples can reveal significant information on ecosystem function.
  Budding yeast as a model for sudden cardiac death
  Dr T Hoefken
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sudden unexpected cardiac death is responsible for about half of all heart disease deaths. It is an unexpected death caused by a change in heart rhythm.
  Characterising temperate bacteriophages in complex microbial communities and their role in antimicrobial resistance (Ref:SF18/APP/Smith)
  Dr D Smith
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Temperate bacteriophages have the ability to integrate into the chromosome of their target bacterium that leads to a change in the physiology of their bacterial host.
  Planetary protection and the search for life in the outer solar system (ref: SF18/APP/Pearce)
  Prof D Pearce
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The search for life in the outer solar system is centred on the search for water and the conditions which are known to support the ‘envelope of life’ on Earth.
  Targeted treatment of gastrointestinal nematode infections in grazing ruminants
  Prof E Morgan, Prof N Scollan
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project summary. Recent work has indicated worrying levels of anthelmintic resistance (AR) in gastrointestinal nematodes (GIN) of cattle, sheep and goats.
  Regulation of the Host-Microbiome Interface in the Gastrointestinal Tract
  Prof U Knaus
Application Deadline: 1 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inflammatory diseases of the gut are on the rise. In North America and Europe, more than 0.3% of the population suffers from inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), characterized by abdominal pain, diarrhoea, and weight loss.
  Statistical and Molecular Genetics of Complex Traits
  Prof Z Luo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most characters of any living organism are polygenically controlled and environmentally modified, including those threatening human health and those important in breeding for high yield, better quality and improved adaption of animals, plants and microbes.
