  Green Chemistry for Selective Functionalisation of C-H bonds to C-C and C-X bonds
  Prof JA Murphy, Prof T Tuttle
Applications accepted all year round
This project is funded at the University of Strathclyde (supervisor for this studentship). Prof John Murphy. This project arises from recent discoveries of new chemistry in the Murphy group and involves conversion of C-H to C-X bonds.
  Carbon dynamics of pre-and post-fire moorlands in upland Britain
  Prof P Hughes, Dr B.J. Robroek, Dr J Leyland
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Programme website. http://inspire-dtp.ac.uk. Project Rationale. Peatlands are critical terrestrial carbon (C) stores and may store up to 17% of the global soil carbon stock [1].
  Modelling soil erosion and soil carbon dynamics in agricultural systems
  Dr M Galdos, Prof P Chapman
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Besides supporting food, feed, fuel and fibre production, soils provide ecosystems services such as storing carbon, filtering water and maintaining biodiversity.
  Characterising Clostridium difficile defence strategies against bacteriophages
  Prof M Clokie, Dr A Millard
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Healthcare associated infections are a major problem for patients and a global health challenge. Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) is particularly problematic, for example the UK has ~20,000 infectious diarrhoeal cases every year, and progressive complications can lead to death in ~3% of infected patients.
  Source to Sea: Soil carbon transport from forested environments to coastal waters (Ref IAP2-18-72)
  Dr C Schroeder, Dr W Austin, Dr C Smeaton, Dr N Shah
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Scotland is a carbon (C) nation with significant stores held in both terrestrial and marine environments. Scotland’s peatlands, for example, hold Europe’s largest organic carbon (OC) reserves, and recent research has shown that Scotland’s sea lochs are even more effective carbon stores [1,2].
  What is the role for community pharmacy in identifying and referring people with undiagnosed hepatitis C directly to secondary care? (TWIGGMU19SF)
  Dr M Twigg
Applications accepted all year round
In order to meet the WHO directive to eliminate Hepatitis1, and in line with national priorities2, hepatitis C services in England face significant challenges to diagnose the 200,000 patients in the UK expected to have hepatitis C but not under specialist care2.
  Creating “Climate-smart” soils to optimize carbon sequestration through land management
  Dr J Subke, Dr M Garnett, Dr M Perks, Prof D Johnson
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Background. The Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5 °C by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC, 2018) recently outlined the clear case for reducing net CO2 emissions globally.
  Vitamin C microbubbles as therapeutic agents for colorectal cancer
  Prof SD Evans
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Recent published studies have shown that Vitamin C can target and kill colorectal cancer cells that contain gene mutations that are present in approximately 50% of colorectal cancer tumours.
  DTC GEO 2 - Wildfires – carbon source or sink? Quantifying the degradation resistance of charcoal produced in different types of vegetation fires
  Dr S Doerr
Applications accepted all year round
Wildfires emit the equivalent of 30% of the global carbon (C) emissions from fossil fuel combustion, but are widely considered C neutral as the emitted C is normally taken up again as vegetation regrows.
