  Formulation of Surface Treatments for Contamination Prevention
  Dr C Crick
Applications accepted all year round
The prevention of surface contamination is an issue of tremendous global importance, relevant to a wide range of different areas.
  NERC - Tackling the Plastic Waste Problem: Quantifying Polymer Contamination of the Terrestrial Environment
  Dr I Bull, Dr B.D.A. Naafs
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
A NERC GW4 + DTP2 Project. Link to project PDF. https://www.bristol.ac.uk/media-library/sites/chemistry/documents/Tackling%20the%20Plastic%20Waste%20Problem%20NERC%20GW4%20DTP2%202019.pdf.
  Coats for Preventing Palladium Membrane Contamination
  Dr B Castro-Dominguez
Application Deadline: 30 April 2019
Many important metal-based catalysts are subject to contamination, since they have non-discriminative adsorptive properties to reactants and contaminants.
  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.
  CDT-SIS-541: Evaluating microplastic contamination in fishmeal
  Research Group: Sustainable Infrastructure Systems (SIS)
  Dr M Hudson, Prof I Williams
Application Deadline: 14 December 2018
Microplastics have emerged as a major environmental problem over recent years. Plastic litter and microplastics are ubiquitous in the marine environment- present in water and sediments, and taken up by marine creatures.
  Cryptosporidium movement in water: impact of eutrophication and climate change on the zoonotic disease agent
  Prof J Cable
Application Deadline: 17 December 2018
Cryptosporidium is a human pathogen unknown until the mid-1970s; in 1993 0.4 million people were infected in Milwaukee following a water treatment failure, and since then, large outbreaks throughout the developed world (most recently Sweden, 2010) have kept the parasite in the public eye.
  PhD Geographical & Earth Sciences: The provenance of volatiles in asteroidal and planetary meteorites
  Prof M Lee, Dr LH Hallis
Applications accepted all year round
Meteorites contain volatiles including water and CO2 that have been used with great effect to explore Solar System processes – meteorites from asteroids can tell us about the delivery of water to the early Earth, whereas Martian meteorites provide unique information on and the hydrosphere and atmosphere of the Red Planet.
  Hot stuff? Evaluating the human exposure hazard presented by land contaminated with organic flame retardants
  Prof S J Harrad, Dr M Abdallah
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
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.
  Impact of karstic flow on Chalk aquifer function and water quality for security of water supply
  Dr J West, Prof S Bottrell
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
We Invite applications for a fully-funded NERC CASE PhD studentship to work on an opportunity for investigating the impacts of contaminants on water quality and security.
  Plastics in fishmeal production from marine sources- characterisation, methods and risk modelling
  Dr M Hudson, Prof J Langley, Dr R Marsh, Prof I Williams
Application Deadline: 12 January 2019
Fishmeal makes an important contribution to global food security, providing an essential nutritional component in feed manufacture for aquaculture and livestock…
