  PhD studentship in Biological Sciences - Assessing Pedagogic Benefits of the Virtual World for Enhancing Fieldwork
  Dr S Marsham, Dr R Bevan
Application Deadline: 1 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Number of awards. 1. Start date and duration. September 2020. Four year PhD with Postgraduate Teaching Assistant Placement. Overview.
  Deciphering the Built Environment Microbiome (Ref: ET20/HLS/APP/SHERRY)
  Dr A Sherry
Application Deadline: 1 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The impact that the construction of new dwellings has on our rural and urban environments is still in its infancy. Understanding this is of the utmost importance as the UK government has pledged to build half a million homes between 2020 and 2022 to meet the demand of a growing population.
  Artificial microbial photosynthesis: development of biohybrid systems to produce solar chemicals and fuels from waste-carbon (Ref: ET20/HLS/APP/BLACK2)
  Prof G Black
Application Deadline: 1 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Solar energy is the most abundant energy source and can act as a green and sustainable energy supply. It is worth noting that one-hour sunlight can satisfy the one-year energy demand of the entire world.
  Novel Bioinformatics and Artificial Intelligence approaches for microbiome analysis (Ref: ET20/HLS/APP/BASHTON)
  Dr M Bashton
Application Deadline: 1 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The microbiome, the collective genomic entity of all microbiota - bacteria, archaea, fungi, protozoa, and viruses of an environment holds an immense amount of information, a considerable amount of improvement with respect to data analysis and real-time interpretation is still needed to bring research out of the lab and into everyday usage in our home environment and health system.

  Dr R Davenport
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Number of awards. 1. Start date and duration. September 2020. 4 year studentship. Overview. The world faces unprecedented challenges in climate change, population growth and urbanisation that will have an impact on our ability to maintain the performance of existing and future wastewater infrastructure.
  PhD Studentship in Multi-scale water resources planning in England and Wales
  Prof C Kilsby
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Number of awards. 1. Start date and duration. September 2020. 4 year studentship. Overview. Water resources are under unprecedented pressure as Great Britain is projected to be in deficit by up to 16% of the total demand in the 2050s.
  Aerobiology and the Arctic - microbial colonization of remote polar environments.(Ref: SF20/APP/PEARCE3)
  Prof D Pearce
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The rate of dispersal to an ecosystem can significantly influence ecosystem dynamics. Aerial transport has also been identified as an important source of biological input to remote locations.
  Bioprospecting & biotechnology - mining the Polar microbial metagenome (Ref: SF20/APP/PEARCE2)
  Prof D Pearce
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project seeks to exploit new and existing Polar microbial metagenomic libraries for bioprospecting and biotechnology. Using a wide range of diverse molecular techniques, we will research the distribution of particularly useful (e.g.
  Microorganisms entombed in Polar ice – assessing the potential emergence of new diseases (Ref: SF20/APP/PEARCE1)
  Prof D Pearce
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The melting Polar Ice caps and receding glaciers worldwide are resulting in the emergence of microorganisms entombed in the ice for considerable periods of time.
  International Sport Events and Climate Change: an investigation of bidirectional relationships (Ref: SF20/SER/BATUEV)
  Dr M Batuev
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

As Greta Thunberg and various environmental groups have recently put more pressure on governments to address the global warming issue, international sport event organizers seems to pay little attention to the issue.
