11. Fully Funded PhD Position in Molecular Microbiology: Deciphering gene regulatory networks in a multi-drug resistant bloodstream pathogen 

Summary of PhD Program:

Extraintestinal pathogenic Escherichia coli (ExPEC) are the leading cause of bloodstream infection (BSI), which can lead to sepsis. BSI is a dominant syndrome related to antimicrobial resistance (AMR), responsible for one third of the total deaths directly attributable to AMR, and E. coli is the leading organism responsible. ExPEC encode an arsenal of virulence determinants and clinical isolates are often resistant to multiple antibiotics. The bloodstream triggers unique gene expression patterns in ExPEC, but how these complex pathways are regulated to promote infection, resist drugs and evade host defences remains unknown. This project therefore aims to identify the genetic regulatory pathways and underlying molecular basis of BSI.

13. Fully Funded PhD Position in Civil Engineering: The impacts of climate variability and climate change on the Indian power system

Summary of PhD Program:

Energy systems across the globe are evolving to meet climate mitigation targets set by the Paris agreement. This process requires a rapid reduction of nations’ reliance on fossil fuels and significant uptake of renewable generation. In parallel to this, the heat and transport sectors are electrifying to reduce their carbon intensity. Increased renewable generation within power systems makes them more weather-dependent, and susceptible to times of energy system stress driven by large-scale weather conditions. India already has a large existing proportion of renewable generation, and such weather conditions could include a heatwave, or a tropical cyclone.

14. Fully Funded PhD Position in Astrophysics: Magnetism in hot Jupiters

Summary of PhD Program:

Hot Jupiters are Jupiter like planets very close to their host stars. They are hot enough that much of their atmospheres are ionised which allows magnetic fields, generated in their deep interiors, to be coupled to their atmospheric dynamics. This coupling can lead to variation in atmospheric winds, Ohmic heating which could “inflate” the planet and atmospheric dynamos. All of these behaviours can be observed to help us understand hot Jupiter atmospheres and evolution. Yet, much of this rich dynamics has yet to be explored. This project will use primarily multi-dimensional numerical simulations, in conjunction with observational constraints to investigate the effects of magnetism on hot Jupiters.

25. Fully Funded PhD Position in Effects of the predictability of oxygen fluctuation on aquatic benthic community dynamics

Summary of PhD Program:

The concentration of dissolved oxygen in aquatic systems (defined as oxyscape, Fusi et al., 2023 Biogeosciences 20:3509-3521) helps to regulate biodiversity, nutrient biogeochemistry, greenhouse gas emissions, and the quality of the water. Aquatic ecosystems spanning from marine to freshwater are characterised by the significant presence of primary producers that create a daily fluctuation of oxygen ranging from condition of oxygen supersaturation during the day to hypoxic condition during the night, through the photosynthetic activity and respiration. Understanding the level of such fluctuation and its predictability is important to determine the organismal physiology and community resilience to environmental stressors such as global warming (Pinsky et al., 2022 Trends in Ecology & Evolution 37:8).

31. Fully Funded PhD Position in Planning/ Landscape: The environmental impacts of housing development

Summary of PhD Program:

Accelerating global urbanisation is having significant detrimental impacts on human and non-human species and environments. This is an intellectual and practical challenge in cities globally as governments struggle to meet the needs of growing populations with increasing demands on natural resources. Suites of concepts for environmental policy have been embraced by the planning profession to promote sustainable cities. However, most approaches have fault-lines: they separate ‘humans’ from ‘nature’ thus failing to account for mutual interdependence, and view land as a commodity to be owned and exploited, failing to recognise it as a vital resource for ecosystems and communities to flourish together. Recent concepts, like nature-based thinking and degrowth have shifted academic thinking towards more eco-centric approaches.

34. Fully Funded PhD Position in Geospatial Engineering: Continental hydrological surface loading deformation from GNSS observations

Summary of PhD Program:

One of the processes that challenge this assumption is related to crustal deformation due to fluctuations in terrestrial water storage. The seasonal exchange of water between the continents and the oceans generates changes in surface loading that causes elastic deformation of the Earth’s surface. This project will focus on using GNSS observations to characterize crustal deformation caused by the redistribution of water mass across a broad range of timescales, and assess how this affects our ability to estimate meaningful secular velocities of the Earth’s crust. This will also improve our understanding of the broad-scale continental hydrological signals.
