  A more sustainable wastewater treatment technology: aerobic granular sludge
  Research Group: Water and Environmental Engineering
  Dr Y Liu
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Dr Yongqiang Liu. Co-supervisor Prof Sonia Heaven. Project description. Municipal wastewater treatment is moving from energy-intensive conventional activated sludge to more advanced technology for sustainability.
  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.
  Novel microprobes for the geochemical gradients in diffusive boundary layers around marine calcifiers
  Dr G Denault, Prof G Foster
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Diffusive boundary layers are common between any two media, e.g. at the sediment-water interface. Indeed, marine organisms, like corals and foraminifera, sense their environment through micron-scale diffusive boundary layers (DBL).
  Palaeophysiology: metabolism and metabolic evolution of ammonites and belemnites
  Dr C Trueman, Prof R Twitchett
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

An animal’s metabolic rate (the sum total of chemical activity powering life) is one of the most powerful predictors of ecological performance, co-varying with life history traits such as growth rate, fecundity, activity levels and, in ectotherms, environmental thermal tolerance.
  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.
  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).
  Tiny fractals in the sea: the biogeochemistry of particle shape
  Dr P Lam
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Particles* are a critical aspect of life and chemistry in the ocean. Marine particles are hotspots of biological activity, and their sinking mediates a major vertical transport of mass and energy that connects the sunlit and dark ocean ecosystems and fundamentally influ-ences global biogeochemistry.
  That sinking feeling - how do marine diatoms actively control sinking rates?
  Dr G Wheeler, Prof C Moore, Dr K Helliwell
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Diatoms are one of the most important groups of phytoplankton in our oceans and make a major contribution to the global carbon cycle.
  Tracking carbon and nitrogen fixing organisms in the oceanic microbiome
  Dr T Bibby, Dr P Lam, Prof W Huang
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Complex marine microbial communities catalyze global cycling of carbon and nitrogen that regulate the Earth’s climate.
  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].
