PhD Opportunity on “Tracking the fate of plastic biodegradation in ocean systems under environmentally relevant conditions”

Application deadline:  Sunday 14th February 2022 This project aims to identify the biological and geochemical/physical processes involved in controlling the fate of plastics (of different polymer types) under different environmental settings. It will utilise sophisticated techniques in microbial ecology, such as DNA-based stable-isotope probing (DNA-SIP), to trace the fate of isotopically-labelled …
