  The mysterious microbial ecosystem beneath our feet: Unravelling the groundwater microbiology archive
  Mr J Sorensen
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This FRESH CDT project aims to provide the first overview of the UK’s groundwater microbial ecosystem. Groundwater constitutes 99% of all accessible freshwater on the planet and is a vital resource for public water supply in the UK.
  Budding yeast as a model for sudden cardiac death
  Dr T Hoefken
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sudden unexpected cardiac death is responsible for about half of all heart disease deaths. It is an unexpected death caused by a change in heart rhythm.
  Disrupting the regulatory mechanisms that allow hospital acquired infections to resist antibiotic therapy.
  Dr R McCarthy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The discovery of penicillin over 90 years ago and its subsequent uptake by healthcare systems around the world revolutionised global health and wellbeing.
  GW4 FRESH CDT studentship: Bacterial fish pathogens: ignored threats for aquaculture and the environment
  Dr C Berger, Prof J Cable
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

In Wales, freshwater fish stocks are in general decline. Around 95% of the rivers are now categorise at risk for salmon stock with most salmon stocks in England and Wales in a depleted state.
  GW4 FRESH CDT studentship: Smart Catchments: Utilising in situ sensors to monitor ecosystem health in freshwater catchments
  Dr E Bagshaw, Dr R Perkins
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project will assess different methods for measuring nutrient fractions in surface water bodies. The student will work with the diverse, multi-disciplinary supervisory team to develop a range of skills to address a real-world problem.
  Future-Proofing Scotland’s Water Security: Delivering Safe and Resilient Water Supplies
  Dr M Glendell, Dr S Halliday, Dr P Ovando Pol, Dr L Avery
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project represents an exciting opportunity to make a difference and help Scotland to adapt to climate change by addressing critical questions of water security within a multi-disciplinary framework.
  Reed Bed Use Within Scotch Whisky Distilleries to Treat Wastewater: A New Toolkit to Help Maximise Performance
  Dr M Taggart, Dr B Morrissey, Dr L Maricello, Dr P Gaffney
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The demand for ‘greener’ wastewater treatment (WWT) is increasing globally. In particular, there is a need for more sustainable ‘passive’ approaches that do not rely so heavily (if at all) on hard engineering and continuous energy and chemical intervention/inputs.
  Graduate Teaching Assistant (GTA) PhD Studentships - Biological Sciences

Funding Type

PhD Type

A fantastic opportunity to study for a fully funded doctorate whilst gaining valuable teaching experience.
  Biomaterials for design - utilising fungi to develop a thick mat-like mycelium for use as an alternative textile - SACI0008
  Dr S Vettese, Prof I Singleton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

PROJECT DESCRIPTION. The textile industry is based largely on the use of cotton, leather and oil derived polymers and these industries are resource intensive and unsustainable.
  Investigating the role of connexins in the gingival response to the oral microbiota
  Dr J Butcher, Dr C Wright, Dr P Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project reference number. SHLS19005. Periodontal disease (PD) is a chronic inflammatory and bone destructive disease that imposes a substantial social and economic burden, and has been linked to the initiation and progression of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, and Alzheimer’s disease.
  Midlands Integrative Biosciences Training Partnership (MIBTP) Funded PhD Studentships

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Midlands Integrative Biosciences Training Partnership (MIBTP) is a BBSRC-funded doctoral training partnership between five research-intensive universities.
  From our clothes to our oceans; understanding the life cycle of a plastic microfiber
  Dr C Cummins
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

There are an estimated 5.25 trillion plastic pieces floating in the global oceans (Salvador Cesa, Turra, & Baruque-Ramos, 2017), with approximately 1.5 million tonnes of microplastics polluting the ocean each year, and approximately 35% microplastic pollution is attributed to the fashion industry (Boucher & Friot, 2017).
  The dynamic response of Arabidopsis thaliana to extreme environmental stressors
  Dr C Cummins
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants have evolved to survive in moving fluids such as air and water (Vogel, 1981). As such, they experience fluctuating loads resulting from the fluid motion; often causing significant deformation to their rest configuration.
  Polymer-based co-delivery agent for antibiotics (EPS2020/36)
  Dr HHP Yiu
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is aimed to develop biodegradable polymer materials for the co-delivery of antibiotics. Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) has been a major concern to the WHO in recent years and many antibiotics had become less and less effective in treating infections.
  Development of a Spores-on-a-Chip Microfluidic Chemostat for Exploring the Responsiveness of Bacterial Spore Communities
  Dr C Stanley
Application Deadline: 1 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Stanley Lab will be moving to the Department of Bioengineering at Imperial College London, the UK’s leading Bioengineering department, and has a fully funded PhD studentship to develop Spores-on-a-Chip microfluidic technology to gain a deeper insight into bacterial spore germination.
