  Cave exploration: shedding light on organic sulfur cycling in a terrestrial underground chemosynthetic system
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr H Schaefer, Dr Y Chen, Dr D Kumaresan
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Highlights. Investigate the organic sulfur cycle of a closed cave ecosystem based on chemosynthesis. Apply stable isotope and metagenomics approaches to characterise uncultivated bacteria.
  Circadian rhythms in plant-microbe interactions
  Prof G Bending, Dr I A Carré
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants live in close association with complex communities of microbes which together constitute their ‘microbiome’. The microbiome interacts with the plant in numerous ways; some microbes are beneficial and promote plant growth, while others are pathogens which reduce crop yields.
  Floaters vs. sinkers: How do marine phytoplankton combat the biological pump?
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr R Puxty, Prof D J Scanlan
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Highlights. Uncover the “genetic dark matter” responsible for maintaining buoyancy in marine phytoplankton. Test how abiotic and biotic stress impact buoyancy traits of marine phytoplankton.
  Global diversity and ecosystem functions of plant-microbe symbioses
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Prof G Bending, Dr C Quince
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Highlights. We have discovered a previously unknown and abundant plant- mycorrhizal symbiosis with global distribution.
  Microbial sunscreens for better life
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr V Stavros, Dr C Corre
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Highlights. · To develop novel biosynthetic procedures for producing environment-friendly UV sunscreens. · To characterise UV sunscreens with state-of-the-art analytical (laser based) techniques.
  Midlands Integrative Biosciences Training Partnership (MIBTP) Funded PhD Studentships

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Midlands Integrative Biosciences Training Partnership (MIBTP) is a BBSRC-funded doctoral training partnership between five research-intensive universities.
  Resilience of soil surface microbial communities and their ecosystem functions to extreme weather
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Prof G Bending, Dr R Mushinski
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Highlights. Biological soil communities (BSC) at the soil surface perform vital ecosystem functions, including C and N fixation, and protection of the soil surface from erosion.
  Smelly sediment dwellers – identifying microbial populations driving DMSO reduction in anoxic sediments
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr H Schaefer, Dr K Purdy, Dr Y Chen
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Highlights. Identify uncharacterised microbes driving anaerobic organic matter degradation. Master a wide range of cutting-edge environmental microbiology techniques.
  Transport of climate active trace gases between the atmosphere and biosphere
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Prof R Kerr
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Overview. Soils both produce and degrade/consume trace volatile gases, as such they are a critical component of global cycling for all greenhouse and climate affecting gases.
  Understanding the genetic blueprint of photosynthetic bacteria?
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr R Puxty, Prof D J Scanlan
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Highlights. Cutting-edge 3D chromosome reconstruction and “gene transplants” using CRISPR. Understanding the evolution of chromosomes of photosynthetic organisms.
