With more than 7 billion microorganisms in the soil, it's no surprise we still have a lot to learn about them and their impact on the environment.

Researchers are invited to apply to work for up to four months on Valuing Nature topics in a new disciplinary, institutional or applied setting. £130k is available to support the placements.
