  Reconstructing microbial genomes from environmental samples and their impact ongreenhouse gases (HILDEBRANDQ20DTP1)
  Dr F Hildebrand
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are looking for a highly motivated student, interested in Bioinformatics (metagenomics), global warming, and metabolism-centric interpretation of ecosystems.
  Establishment of germline-specific DNA methylation in plants (FENGJ20DTP)
  Dr X Feng
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our recent work demonstrated distinctive DNA methylation occurs at hundreds of genes across the entire male germline in plants. This germline-specific methylation is catalysed by a ubiquitous methylation pathway, and regulates meiosis by controlling gene expression and splicing.
  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.
  Modelling the effects of climate change on European yields of oilseed rape (PENFIELDUJIC20ARIES)
  Dr S Penfield
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change is now widely understood to be impacting food supplies. Ensuring future food security will require understanding how climate change will affect crop yields in different agricultural systems and the design of appropriate measures for adaptation.
  Making impact assessment relevant for the 21st century (BONDAU20SF)
  Dr A Bond
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The future of impact assessment (IA) (a mandated decision-support process in every country of the world) has to contend with global megatrends, including the fourth industrial revolution (Retief et al., 2016), that are set to change the face of the planet (Dusik et al., 2018).
  Making tiering in environmental assessment work (BONDA1U20SF)
  Dr A Bond
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

An Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) system is supposed to predict the effects of actions that might have significant impacts at all levels of decision-making, including policies, plans, programmes and projects.
  Forensic oceanography: how does winter leave a fingerprint in the ocean? (ZHAIUENV20ARIES)
  Dr X Zhai, Prof K Heywood
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND. The Southern Ocean is a critical component of the global climate system, accounting for about 75% of ocean heat uptake and 40% of ocean anthropogenic carbon uptake.
  Deluge or drought? Climate change and South Asian Monsoon rainfall (WEBBERUENV20ARIES)
  Dr B Webber, Prof D Stevens, Prof M Joshi, Dr AG Turner
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BACKGROUND. Climate change is expected to profoundly affect the South Asian (Indian) monsoon, with substantial impacts on the livelihoods of over a billion people.
  Who cycles DMSP in coastal waters and how? (TODDUBIO20ARIES)
  Dr J Todd, Dr R Airs, Dr F Hopkins, Dr S Moxon
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

INTRODUCTION. Dimethylsulfoniopropionate (DMSP) is one of Earth’s most abundant organosulfur molecules. It is an anti-stress compound that is produced by many marine phytoplankton and bacteria.
  CO2 Uptake by the Southern Ocean: Using atmospheric measurements to understand the key processes (SUNTHARALINGAMUENV20ARIES)
  Dr P Suntharalingam, Dr A Jones, Dr A Manning, Prof C Le Quere
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BACKGROUND AND APPROACH. The Southern Ocean plays a fundamental role in regulating global climate through uptake of heat and atmospheric carbon-dioxide (CO2), and removes ~40% of atmospheric CO2 derived from human activity.
