  Exploring the biochemistry of oxidative biomass breakdown towards improved sustainability.
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr G.R. Hemsworth, Prof A Berry
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Efficiently degrading and making use of lignocellulosic waste materials remains a major challenge towards ensuring a more sustainable future.
  Unravelling the global microbiome of crop plants to improve sustainability and food security
  Prof G Bending, Dr C Quince
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.
  Reed Bed Use Within Scotch Whisky Distilleries to Treat Wastewater: A New Toolkit to Help Maximise Performance
  Dr M Taggart, Dr B Morrissey, Dr L Maricello, Dr P Gaffney
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The demand for ‘greener’ wastewater treatment (WWT) is increasing globally. In particular, there is a need for more sustainable ‘passive’ approaches that do not rely so heavily (if at all) on hard engineering and continuous energy and chemical intervention/inputs.
  Transmission of HEV: risk from the environment and waste water in Scotland
  Dr C Hunter, Dr C Crossan, Prof L Scobie
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCEBE-19-027. In Scotland, the number of Hepatitis E virus (HEV) infections are increasing yearly, since 2011 laboratory confirmed cases have increased 15-fold.
  QUADRAT DTP: Unravelling the freshwater microbial phosphorus cycle
  Prof J Mcgrath, Dr C Gubry-Rangin, Dr J Chin, Dr B Spears
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Eutrophication of freshwater environments via anthropogenic phosphorus (P) input is one of the most serious global water management issues.
  GW4 FRESH CDT PhD Studentship: Assessing the microbial contamination of freshwater systems by wastewater treatment plants using phage microbial source tracking
  Dr A Lanham
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Centre for Doctoral Training in Freshwater Biosciences and Sustainability (GW4 FRESH CDT) which is offering up to 14 studentships to start in September 2020.
  Unseen side-effects – can we control how plants respond to medicinal drugs?
  Dr L Dixon, Dr Laura Carter, Dr S Kepinski
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project summary. Medicinal and veterinary drugs have revolutionised mammalian health, however, they do carry side-effects.
  Exploring the genome architecture of plastic-degrading bacteria
  Dr S Robson, Dr J.E.M Watts
Application Deadline: 7 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a fully-funded four year PhD studentship to commence in October 2020. The PhD will be based at the University’s Centre for Enzyme Innovation (CEI), and will be supervised by Dr Sam Robson and Dr Joy Watts.
  PhD in cellular and structural biology - Elucidating infection at the plant-microbe interphase to define targets for crop breeding
  Dr C Voigt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Achieving food security is one of the most important global challenges. Crop production and yield has been increasingly threatened by plant pathogens in a rapidly changing environment.
  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.
  Research opportunities in the Department of Archaeology

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Department of Archaeology at York is a vibrant research community and a centre of excellent research-led teaching.
