  Plant breeding for food safety
  Dr G Taylor, Prof B Keevil
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Food security often focuses on food production, but reduced food waste and enhanced quality and safety are important targets for food resilience.
  Using genomic data of sponges to reveal patterns of genetic diversity and connectivity in the Mediterranean Sea
  Dr A Riesgo, Dr M Rius
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding the genetic diversity and connectivity patterns of marine invertebrates and how they adapt to their local environments is vital to design conservation strategies.
  Modelling the evolution of adaptive responses to climate change across spatial landscapes
  Prof R Hoyle, Dr O Razgour, Dr M Chapman
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Through increasing periods of drought, higher temperatures and extreme events, future climate change will introduce new selection pressures on species.
  Dynamic phytoplankton iron physiology and its impacts on global ecosystem function
  Dr B Ward, Dr T Bibby
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Primary production couples solar energy arriving at the Earth’s surface to global biogeochemistry, linking elemental cycles together through the synthesis of organic molecules.
  Comparative study of anemones from distinct thermal habitats: Highlighting the impact of geographic isolation in promoting evolution of thermal resistant genotypes
  Dr V Modepalli, Prof J Wiedenmann, Prof C Brownlee
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Acquisition of phototrophic endosymbionts constitutes a key ecological innovation in the evolution of corals, permitting these animals to flourish in oligotrophic waters.
  Integrating marine fungi into the structure and function of pelagic ecosystems.
  Dr M Cunliffe, Dr B Ward, Prof ME Edwards
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Even though marine fungi have been known to exist since the 19th century, the application of molecular ecology tools has established a foundational understanding of the widespread distribution and diversity of the ocean mycobiome (Amend et al 2019).
  Plankton size, climate and ocean function through time.
  Dr S Gibbs, Dr B Ward, Prof P Bown
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Plankton are fundamental to life on Earth as the base of the marine food web and an important carbon sink.
  Genomics of Adaption to Climate Change in Rice
  Dr M Chapman, Dr M Carine, Dr L Williams
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Feeding a growing population sustainably in the face of climate change requires us to resolve the genetic basis of crop tolerance to stress (especially temperature, precipitation and edaphic factors).
  Nitrogen cycling in a subsurface serpentinising system – an analogue for early life on Earth
  Dr P Lam, Dr J Matter
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. The emergence of life on Earth required abiotic syntheses of energy and organic compounds. For this, serpentinization –water-rock reactions coupling oxidation of ferrous iron to the generation of hydrogen –has in recent years been considered a key mechanism[1].
  Phytoplankton nutrient sensing mechanisms: key to thriving in coastal ecosystems?
  Dr K Helliwell, Dr J Robidart, Prof C Moore, Dr A Rees
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Marine phytoplankton play vital roles in regulating the global climate, contributing almost half of net primary production.
