  GW4 FRESH CDT studentship: Cascading effects of micro- and nano-plastics on lipid quality and transfer through freshwater planktonic ecosystems
  Dr IA Guschina, Prof S Ormerod
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite growing global concern about the occurrence of small plastic particles (nano- and micro-plastics) in the world’s seas, rivers and lakes, there has been limited research into understanding any adverse effects on living organisms.
  Comparative analysis of carbon assimilation pathways in key species of marine phytoplankton
  Dr T Tonon, Dr L Mackinder
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Seas and oceans cover more than 70% of our planet, contribute to half of the primary production on Earth, and are responsible for cycling half of the carbon fixed by living organisms.
  Evolution and biochemistry of photosynthesis - electron transfer reactions, renewable energy production, biotechnology, and chloroplast genomes
  Prof C J Howe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The common theme of our work is the biochemistry and evolution of photosynthesis.
  Inter-partner communication in the cnidarian-dinoflagellate symbiosis and the adaptability of corals to climate change
  Prof S Davy
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We will test whether the success of the coral-algal symbiosis, and hence coral reef ecosystems as a whole, is determined by molecular ‘cross-talk’ between the partners that has the potential to rid the coral of unwanted, less beneficial algae while retaining beneficial ones.
  Investigating Photosynthesis in Nannochloropsis – An Important Algal Genus for Biofuel Production
  Dr D J Gilmour
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the key insights from phylogenetic studies of eukaryotic microorganisms is the enormous diversity within the microalgal group with green algae being similar to plants and other groups such as diatoms being very different.

  Deciphering algal metabolism of key marine chemicals involved in the sulfur biogeochemical cycle
  Dr T Tonon, Prof S J McQueen-Mason
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Marine ecosystems play major role in the biogeochemical cycling of several chemical elements, including sulfur. This is due to the metabolism of two key compounds, dimethylsulfoniopropionate (DMSP) and dimethyl sulfide (DMS).
  Reconstitution of a ciliary rootlet for cryoEM structure determination.
  Dr A Carter
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cilia are found on all cells and have functions ranging from receiving signals to moving mucus out of the lungs. At their feet are basal bodies and below these are long striated filaments known as rootlets.
  The chemical glycobiology of carbohydrate metabolism
  Prof R Field, Prof S Flitsch
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Carbohydrates are widespread in nature and fulfil many important biological functions. However, the biology of carbohydrates is much less well explored than that of nucleic acids and proteins.
  DMSP production in Earths highest producers (TODDU20DTP)
  Dr J Todd, Dr A Truman
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Dimethylsulfoniopropionate (DMSP) is one of the Earth’s most abundant organosulfur compounds. It is an antistress compound with key roles in global nutrient and sulfur cycling, signalling and climate.
