James Prosser
University of Aberdeen
Jim Prosser is Emeritus Professor in Environmental Microbiology in the School of Biological Sciences at the University of Aberdeen. He was awarded a BSc in Microbiology by Queen Elizabeth College, University of London in 1972 and a PhD by the University of Liverpool in 1975. He then carried out postdoctoral research in Liverpool before moving to a lectureship at the University of Aberdeen, where he held a Personal Chair prior to retirement in 2020. His research focuses on the ecophysiology, diversity and ecosystem function of soil microorganisms, with particular emphasis on ammonia oxidisers, which play a central in the global nitrogen cycle. This research has uncovered novel microbial groups involved in biogeochemical cycling processes and situations in which niche specialisation impacts on process rates.
