Experimental approaches to the evolution of anisogamy in a single celled alga

  Research Group: Centre for Evolutionary Biology
We are looking for a talented student to conduct their PhD on the evolutionary biology of anisogamy. Anisogamy is the difference in size between male and female gametes and is the driver of sexual selection and the evolution of the sexes. Read more

Molecular breeding in raspberry to improve fruit quality PhD

An opportunity has arisen for a fully-funded PhD studentship through a collaboration between Cranfield University and Edward Vinson Ltd, a Kent-based soft fruit breeding company. Read more

The nature of mycorrhizal symbioses

This project will build on recent work highlighting the changing view of the nature of the relationship between plant and fungus in the (near) ubiquitous symbiosis. Read more

Machine learning methods for integrating ‘omics data in the study of the human microbiome (QUINCE_E21EPSRC)

This project based in Dr Quince’s group at the Earlham Institute (. https://www.earlham.ac.uk/quince-group). will use machine learning to develop new computational methods for the integrated analysis of metagenomics and metabolomics data from the human microbiome. Read more

Understanding threats of microplastic pollution to soil health

  Research Group: Applied Ecology Research Group (AERG)
Soils are fundamental for supporting life, forming the base of terrestrial food-webs closely linked to food production. Productive agro-ecosystems rely on healthy soils that host diverse plant, animal and microbial communities ensuring sustainable and reliable food production. Read more

PhD ON TEMPORAL STABILITY OF GUT MICROBIOTA IN PIGS (fully funded project)

PROJECT DESCRIPTION OF MONOGUTHEALTH. The MonoGutHealth project will provide an interdisciplinary, intersectoral and international training experience for you as an early stage researcher (ESR). Read more

Carbon-nutrient stoichiometry to stabilize soil organic matter and improve soil function

Sustainable food production is top of the global policy agenda. This requires soil functions are optimized to sustainably meet increased agricultural productivity, and other necessary soil functions such as carbon sequestration, climate regulation and nutrient cycling. Read more
