Testing the accuracy of evolutionary inferences from morphological phylogeny

  Research Group: Interdisciplinary Centre for Ancient Life
Phylogenetic data are fundamental for understanding evolution. Building and analysing trees from genotypic and phenotypic data is necessary to reconstruct evolutionary relationships, diversifications, rates, and dynamics. Read more

Leveraging polysaccharide degrading abilities of wastewater treatment microbiomes to develop clean future polymers

The overarching goal of this project is to characterise the natural polysaccharide-degrading ability of wastewater treatment plant microbiomes to tailor production of functionalised 'clean future polymers' that are likely to be degraded prior to discharge of wastewater back into the environment.

Understanding methane history and reservoir potential in the South China Sea

  Research Group: Isotope Geochemistry & Planetary Science
Sustainable hydrocarbon gas extraction is necessary as a key part of the energy transition away from the most polluting hydrocarbon energy sources. Read more

Understanding Historical and Contemporary Forces Shaping Tropical Biodiversity for Future Conservation

The large amount of environmental change that has occurred during the Pleistocene, in which tropical forests and grasslands have repeatedly contracted and expanded, has dramatically shaped the biodiversity of tropical ecosystems. Read more

Temporal and spatial changes in the composition of ancient Egyptian mummification resin

  Research Group: Molecular Environmental Sciences
The Ancient Egyptians believed that preservation (mummification) of the body immediately following death was essential if the individual was to be resurrected in the afterlife. Read more

Sunlight and skin type: exploring the vitamin D status of the black-skinned population in UK

  Research Group: Molecular Environmental Sciences
Vitamin D is necessary for calcium homeostasis, and thus a healthy musculoskeletal system. It is also implicated in contributing to defences against a range of other ailments including autoimmune diseases, respiratory tract infections and cancers. Read more

Structure of the Azores plateau from earthquake seismology

The Azores Plateau is considered to have grown somewhat like Iceland, by excess volcanism at the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, and by volcanism continuing to historical times on the islands and in submarine areas around them. Read more

Shedding light on the functioning of root-fungal symbioses with high resolution isotopic imaging

In this exciting multi-disciplinary project, you will work at the interface between physical and biological sciences, using the latest technologies in both to address key questions that underlie food security in the face of changing climates. Read more

Searching for dust storms using emerging machine-learning techniques

Introduction. Atmospheric mineral dust is a key component of the Earth system. It affects the radiation budget through atmospheric absorption and scattering, it is a condensation nucleus in clouds and once it is deposited it can act as a nutrient for iron-limited ecosystems. Read more

Removing organic contaminants from drinking water; testing the effectiveness of a novel water treatment technology

  Research Group: Molecular Environmental Sciences
Although the United Nations General Assembly, through resolution 64/292, explicitly recognized the human right to water and acknowledged that clean drinking water is essential to the realisation of all human rights, still around 663 million people worldwide lack access to an improved water source, making this one of the biggest environmental problems of our time.
