Coral reefs are the marine equivalent of rainforests. occupying 0.1% of the world’s ocean surface but hosting 38% of marine species.
  Sustainable mountain soils in the face of change; impact of land-use and climate extremes
  Dr R Mills, Dr J Whitaker, Dr S Toet, Mr D Martin
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Do you want to help shape the future of our mountainous environments? Are you passionate about how our mountains can contribute to food production, safeguard water supply, and mitigate climate change? Do you want to do this whilst gaining cutting-edge skills? If so, this PhD is for you.
  New approaches to understanding the physical biology of blood stem cells
  Dr D G Kent, Dr S D Johnson
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Trillions of blood cells are produced and destroyed every day. Adult blood stem cells are ultimately responsible for the lifelong maintenance of this system, making it essential to understand their biology for a wide array of clinical and industrial applications.
