  Investigating the enzymatic hydrolysis of wheat straw and production of biogas fuel by microbial co-cultures of anaerobic fungi and methanogens
  Prof J P J Chong, Dr M Reilly
Application Deadline: 13 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Industrial anaerobic digestion (AD) can be used to convert a wide range of biomass sources (or feedstock) such as food-wastes, farm slurries, sewage sludge and purpose-grown agricultural crops into renewable biogas fuel.
  New biological diagnostics for environmental contaminants
  Prof J Moir, Dr S D Johnson
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are interested in recruiting a student interested in using biological methods to detect biological and chemical contamination in environmental samples.
  Improving arsenic tolerance in rice
  Prof F J M Maathuis, Dr H V Isaacs
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Arsenic (As) is an extremely toxic metalloid, which occurs ubiquitously in nature but is particularly prevalent in South-East Asia.
  Elucidating plant alkaloid biosynthesis
  Dr B R Lichman, Dr W Unsworth
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants are capable of forming complex natural products from simple starting materials. Many of these natural products are bioactive, but access is limited as they are difficult to synthesise using organic chemistry and are present in small quantities in the natural source.
  Developing phage therapy to control plant pathogenic bacteria in the rhizosphere microbiome
  Dr V Friman
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plant pathogenic bacteria cause considerable economic losses to food production systems. The main reason for this is that hardly any effective control methods exist to mitigate this damage.
  Metabolomics informatics
  Prof J P J Chong, Dr E Rand
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are collecting untargeted metabolomics data on microbiomes associated with the process of anaerobic digestion (the conversion of waste biomass to biogas).
  Designing a microbial platform for the biorefinery of Sargassum (brown algae) golden tides
  Dr T Tonon, Prof S J McQueen-Mason
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Oceans are the largest untapped growth opportunity for biomass. As an. illustration, golden tides due to the massive beaching of floating Sargassum.
  Molecular mechanisms to reduce Arsenic in Rice
  Prof F J M Maathuis, Dr H V Isaacs
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Food security is under pressure all over the globe. Abiotic stress is one of the. largest threats to crop production and amongst these, crop contamination.
  Does plant pathogen adaptation in environmental reservoirs and secondary host affect its virulence and risk for transmission?
  Dr V Friman, Prof M Brockhurst, Dr D Jeffares
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Even though opportunistic plant pathogens must survive in various natural. environments during transmission between hosts, this crucial part of their life-.
  Tracking anaerobic microbial community responses using a synthetic biology approach
  Prof J P J Chong, Dr K Redeker
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Anaerobic digestion (AD) supports the biogenic production of methane from. organic waste by utilising the catabolic activities of complex microbial.
