Project details. Phosphorus is a globally important resource used particularly by the agricultural industry in fertiliser, enabling the growth of enough crops to feed the world’s increasing population.
  Emerging Infectious Diseases – Surveillance and Biosecurity
  Dr N Marks, Dr P McVeigh
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. A continued increase in both the geographical range of existing pathogens and the transmission of novel pathogens into the human population poses a challenge for the effective control of emerging infectious diseases (EIDs) and biosecurity.
  Gene mining useful biocatalysts from paleosols
  Prof C Allen, Dr C Law
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Paleosols are often sediments that are relatively unaffected by the Anthropocene. While there is much research on the microbial community structure found in urban and agricultural soils, these relatively undisturbed soils are very different in a geological and physical context.
