  Development of a next-generation biosensor system for detecting concentrations and tissue distribution of heavy metals in living aquatic animals. NERC FRESH CDT studentship, PhD in Biosciences
  Prof S Scholpp
Application Deadline: 17 December 2018
Lead Supervisor. Associate Professor Steffen Scholpp, University of Exeter. Additional Supervisors. Dr David Spurgeon, Centre for the Ecology and Hydrology (CEH).
  Hot stuff? Evaluating the human exposure hazard presented by land contaminated with organic flame retardants
  Prof S J Harrad, Dr M Abdallah
Applications accepted all year round
Chemical flame retardants (FRs) such as polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) and chlorinated organophosphates (e.g. tris (2-chloroisopropyl)phosphate – TCIPP) have been used extensively in a wide range of applications worldwide.
  Multi-Fluids Discontinuous Control Volume – Finite Element Methods(CVFEM) for Subsurface Geothermal Flows
  Dr J Gomes, Dr L Akanji
Applications accepted all year round
Immiscible displacement flows have been widely studied in contaminant dispersion in the subsurface (e.g., solute transport to aquifers, radionuclide’s diffusion in nuclear storage, etc) and oil & gas production (e.g., enhanced oil recovery, heavy oil production, etc) applications.
  Stratified shear flows in inclined pipes
  Dr Y Tanino, Dr D Van der A
Applications accepted all year round
Stably stratified shear flows are ubiquitous in the environment and industrial systems. In the atmosphere such flows are associated with clear air turbulence.
  Microplastics as a Vector for Micropollutants in Aquatic Environments
  Dr C Pestana, Prof L Lawton, Prof C Moffat
Application Deadline: 10 January 2019
Background. Any plastic particle that measures less than 5 mm in all dimensions is considered to be a microplastic.
  Fully Funded PhD Studentship: Mobile Sensor Network for Deployment and Characterisation of the Environment in Nuclear Sites
  Dr A Montazeri
Application Deadline: 31 December 2018
A fully funded PhD studentship is available for an outstanding graduate with specific interest on robotics, control as well as signal processing techniques.
  Non-thermal plasma technology for environmental protection
  Dr R Erfani
Applications accepted all year round
Reference Number. SciEng-RE-2018-1. Project Summary. This project aims to advance air pollution reduction technology by developing Non-thermal plasma reactor design.
  Bayesian Network Approaches for Vulnerability Assessment and Management of Diffuse Groundwater Pollution
  Dr M Troldborg, Dr Z Zhang, Dr J C Comte, Dr B Marchant
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
BACKGROUND. Groundwater (GW) is an important source of drinking water in many countries and plays a vital role in the natural water cycle, providing the baseflow of surface water ecosystems.
  Invisible world: the biogeography of molecular and microbial diversity in European lakes
  Dr A Tanentzap, Prof T Dittmar
Application Deadline: 3 January 2019
Cambridge C-CLEAR NERC DTP PhD Studentship. Lead Supervisor. Andrew Tanentzap, Plant Sciences. Co-Supervisor. Thorsten Dittmar, University of Oldenburg.
  Fate of engineered nanomaterials in waste water treatment plants
  Dr R Crane, Prof T Scott
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
