  Blue carbon and ecosystem functioning in mangroves under pressure. PhD in Geography (NERC GW4+ DTP)
  Dr B van Maanen
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Dr Barend van Maanen, Department of Geography, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter.
  Where did all the carbon go? Understanding and predicting carbon inventories in coarse sediments
  Dr C Thompson, Dr R Parker
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

‘Blue carbon’ (BC), or carbon stored long-term in marine environments, is receiving increasing attention from scientists and policy makers, in terms of its capacity to mitigate against climate change by storing CO2and the potential to value these systems as a method of off-setting carbon emissions.
  The physics and biology of the ocean carbon sink: how air-sea interactions affect organic carbon uptake and sequestration in the Southern Ocean.
  Dr D Jones, Dr A Martin, Prof A Naveira-Garabato
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The water masses leaving the Southern Ocean form a major conduit of atmospheric carbon into the interior of the global ocean. Part of this transport is via the ‘solubility carbon pump’ whereby CO2 dissolved in seawater is transported into the interior ocean.
  Does Stripping Topsoil of Carbon Cause Irreversible Physical Degradation?
  Prof P Hallett, Prof J Smith
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Severe soil degradation is prevalent across much of sub-Saharan Africa, driven primarily by the depletion of carbon from the soil.
  Quantifying Globally Significant Carbon Sequestration in Large River Systems. PhD in Geography (NERC GW4+ DTP)
  Prof R Aalto
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Prof Rolf Aalto, Department of Geography, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter. Additional Supervisors.
  Herbivore and mycorrhizal mediation of carbon cycling in heather moorlands
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Dr S M Sait, Prof K. Field, Prof P Chapman
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The multiple drivers of environmental change, such as climate change and pollution, have led to widespread negative impacts on ecosystem functioning and services that are critical for human well-being.
  Carbon fluxes in mangrove – seagrass ecosystems
  Prof J Dash, Dr V Byfield, Dr C Evans, Dr A Lichtschlag
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Mangroves are an important and unique costal ecosystem. The carbon storage potential of mangrove and seagrass ecosystems is widely recognized [1].
  PhD studentship opportunity in integrated Carbon Dioxide Capture and Utilisation
  Dr M Duyar
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is a fully funded Ph.D. project focusing on developing dual function materials (DFMs) that can capture carbon dioxide from an emission source and release it as a high value fuel or chemical upon exposure to a reducing co-reactant.
  The Impact of Management on Grassland and Cropland Soil Organic Carbon
  Dr K Byrne
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Carbon (C) sequestration associated with pastures and improved grassland management could provide a mitigation option without impacting on agricultural production.
  Coupled carbon, water and heat fluxes over the global land surface
  Prof K Haines, Dr TL Quaife, Dr D Hemming
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Simulating changes to the Earth’s energy, water and carbon cycles is a key goal of climate and earth system models.
