  The marine phosphorus cycle and the methane paradox
  Prof J Mcgrath, Dr J Chin
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Marine microorganisms play major roles in regulating climate and driving global biogeochemical cycling. It has long been recognised that phosphorus (P) availability plays a major role in these processes by controlling marine primary productivity.
  Iron Homeostasis in Bacterial Plant Colonization and Disease
  Dr A Holmes, Dr N Holden, Prof S C Andrews
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Iron is an essential nutrient in all orders of life. Since uptake is hampered by insolubility, plants and bacteria have evolved mechanisms for active sequestration, through the secretion of chelators called siderophores, and uptake via transport mechanisms.
