  Improving Key Carbon Cycle Processes in Climate Models Using Satellite Observations
  Prof H Boesch
Application Deadline: 5 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The impact of man-made emissions on climate is recognised as a, if not the, major global societal issue. To understand the effects of these emissions (and mitigate/adapt to the subsequent changes), it is vital that we have a better understanding of the various couplings and feedbacks within the Earth system.
  Comparative analysis of carbon assimilation pathways in key species of marine phytoplankton
  Dr T Tonon, Dr L Mackinder
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Seas and oceans cover more than 70% of our planet, contribute to half of the primary production on Earth, and are responsible for cycling half of the carbon fixed by living organisms.
  Analysing forest aboveground carbon dynamics using dense time-series of satellite data and artificial intelligence
  Prof H Balzter
Application Deadline: 5 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent advances in computing technology, cloud computing and high-performance computing are paralleled with advanced artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms and significant investment in the European Copernicus Earth Observation programme and its Sentinel satellite missions.
  Buildings as a global carbon sink: investigating realistic pathways addressing the temporal mistmatch between supply and demand SEBE0027
  Dr FP Pomponi, Dr BD D'amico, Dr G Fountas
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The built environment contributes some 40% to global greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions, and in similar shares to the consumption of finite resources and the generation of waste flows [1].
  Global potential for bamboo in construction: a dynamic flow analysis and impact assessment coordinating long-term production and consumption SEBE0034
  Dr FP Pomponi, Dr BD D'amico, Dr J Zhang
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many countries have committed to net-zero carbon targets in the coming decades, and the world as a whole must embark on an unprecedented carbon reduction journey to address the current climate crises and keep global warming below 1.5 degrees C.
  Disappearing into thin air? Understanding degradation of plastic polymers in soils and freshwaters
  Dr B Surridge
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plastic pollution is one of the most pervasive threats facing global ecosystems. However, very little is known about the processes and governing factors that control the persistence of plastic polymers within environmental matrices such as soil or freshwater.
  Biological nitrogen fixation in forest soils under elevated CO2: response of a key soil nutrient to global change
  Dr S Ullah, Dr A R MacKenzie
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are looking for an enthusiastic, well-qualified, and self-motivated candidate to join our team as a PhD student in the School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences and the Birmingham Institute of Forest Research (BIFoR) at the University of Birmingham.
  Microbial biogeochemistry in agricultural landscapes: An investigation of reactive nitrogen oxide fluxes from soil
  Dr R Mushinski, Prof G Bending
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A range of pollutant gases, and especially nitrogen (N) compounds (N2O, NO, NO2, etc.) are emitted to the atmosphere from agricultural activities.1 These gases are extremely important for a myriad of reason including their contribution to climate change, urban air pollution, and N-deposition.
  Performance Assessment and Flexibility Study of Natural Gas-Fired Power Plants Integrated with Intensified Solvent Based Carbon Capture
  Prof M Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Natural gas-fired (mainly combined cycle gas turbine) power plants are becoming increasingly popular due to its cleaner nature. Solvent based carbon capture is the most matured technology for commercial deployment in natural gas-fired power plants.
  Impacts of Climate Change on Ecosystems
  Prof G Phoenix
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change is one of the greatest threats to biodiversity and ecosystem functioning.
  New Products from a Sustainable Ammonia Cycle
  Dr M J Plater, Dr W T A Harrison
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Renewable sources of energy are essential for the world to improve its carbon footprint and to become carbon neutral. Solar power and wind are of increasing interest particularly in hot country’s with large areas of land for solar panels.
  Hydrogen Transport and Trapping Mechanisms Controlling Embrittlement of Nickel Alloys in Low Carbon Energy Systems
  Research Group: Metallurgy and Corrosion
  Dr B Connolly
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many current and next generation energy systems are reliant on the production, transportation, storage and use of gaseous hydrogen, often at high pressure.
  A systems level energy approach to green shipping using carbon free fuel
  Dr A Panesar, Dr P Atkins, Dr R Morgan
Application Deadline: 1 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Clean Growth UK is a national business-innovation network hosted by three universities with applied research expertise across clean growth sectors.
