  QUADRAT DTP: Impact of climate change on stability of sponge-microbe symbiosis
  Dr C Gubry-Rangin, Prof M Emmerson
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to understand the biodiversity and stability (resilience and resistance) of sponge-microbe symbiosis following multiple environmental perturbations influenced by climate change.
  Climate change impacts on calcareous sponges
  Dr J Bell
Application Deadline: 1 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change is impacting organisms throughout our oceans, but our knowledge of the impacts on some important biological groups is severely lacking.
  QUADRAT DTP: Modelling metagenomics-derived microbial traits in soils under climate change
  Dr A Malik, Dr T Caruso
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Microorganisms are critical in terrestrial carbon cycling because their growth and activity largely control the fate of recent plant carbon inputs as well as protected soil organic carbon (SOC).
  QUADRAT DTP: Environmental change and the epidemiology of a multi-host pathogen: Leptospira in Africa
  Dr M Moseley, Prof E Morgan
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Multi-host pathogens include some the most important pathogens of livestock and humans. These pathogens are maintained in complex ecological reservoirs that are comprised of epidemiologically connected animal host populations and environments (Viana et al., 2014).
  QUADRAT DTP: Do plant communities manipulate soil for drought resistance?
  Prof P Hallett, Prof M Emmerson
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants have differing abilities to engineer soil to make them more productive and stable under stress, but the mechanisms that underpin processes remain poorly understood, despite their significance to soil sustainability, food security and climate change.
  Evolving to evolve: testing how history and community influence evolutionary potential
  Prof T Cooper
Application Deadline: 1 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Cooper Lab studies the genetic basis of microbial adaptation, especially the role of genetic and environmental interactions in determining mutation effects.
  ONE Planet DTP - Quantifying changes in the soil microbial community greenhouse gas emissions caused by pesticide use: Ferric phosphate, a case study (OP20277)
  Dr S Flynn
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Agricultural accounts for 9% of the UK’s and 30% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions. The use of chemical-based pesticides, fertilizers and herbicides and the disruption of soils are substantial contributors these emissions.
  e-Biofuels from CO2 conversion (Ref: Renu20-16)
  Dr E Yu
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Renewable Energy Northeast Universities (ReNU) is a collaborative doctoral training programme run by the Universities of Northumbria, Newcastle and Durham.
  ONE Planet DTP - The role of soil ecology and microbiology in sustainable carbon capture (carbonate precipitation) within artificial soils incorporating industry wastes (Ref: OP20305)
  Dr M Prendergast-Miller
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Description. In addition to reducing greenhouse gas emissions it is recognised that sequestration of carbon (geoengineering) is a vital requirement for the future of the planet in mitigating the effects of climate change.
  Exploitation of Diosorea (yam) as a renewable source of high value chemicals (HVC)
  Prof P Fraser
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chemical synthesis using precursors from petrochemical refining is the production method of choice for a wide range of multi-sectorial products including household goods and pharmaceuticals.
