  Diatoms for the efficient trapping of solar energy
  Dr K Ryan, Dr Gerald Smith
Application Deadline: 1 February 2019
A PhD scholarship in biological nanostructures is offered for experimental research into marine diatoms, and in particular to study their outer cell wall that functions as an efficient trap for solar energy.
  Water purification using solar energy captured by natural photonic crystals
  Dr G Williams, Dr Gerald Smith
Applications accepted all year round
A PhD scholarship in physics is offered for experimental research into natural photonic crystals that trap solar energy and have the potential for generating steam to purify water.
  Quantification of sediment organic matter fractions at Crose Mere, Shropshire FTNIRS and FTIRS
  Dr J Boyle, Prof R Chiverell
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Palaeolimnological assessment of recent environmental change, building quantitative records of past states that pre-date instrumental measurements, has dramatically strengthened our understanding of current ecosystem functioning, enabling political and management decisions by providing firm evidence of both the existence of change, and of its causes.
  Seasonal shifts in phytoplankton community structure in the Southern Ocean observed from space
  Dr H Bouman, Dr CM Moore, Dr A Martin, Dr S Henson
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Marine diatoms are key players in the ocean carbon cycle, responsible for ~ 20% of global marine productivity.
  Characterising SuDS Pond sediments in relation to Water Quality, Biodiversity & Ecosystem Functioning: implications for provision of multiple benefits
  Research Group: Institute for Infrastructure & Environment
  Dr S Arthur, Dr V Glenis, Prof T Fernandes, Dr V Krivtsov
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
SUDS ponds are an important part of Blue\Green Infrastructure. They help to alleviate flood risk and provide a number of further benefits, including e.g.
  Expressing the key photoprotective protein of diatom algae, LHCX1, in higher plants
  Prof A Ruban, Dr G Hanke
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Significance and timeliness. Photosynthetic organisms face rapid fluctuations in light intensity. High light is harmful, resulting in reduction in plant productivity [1].
  Correlative microscopic analysis of uptake, localisation and transformations of nanoscale particles in freshwater foodwebs
  Dr I Lynch, Prof S Krause
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The potential for human exposure to manufactured nanoparticles (NPs) has increased in recent years, in part through their incorporation into a wide range of commercial goods and medical applications.
  PhD in Geographical & Earth Sciences: High Resolution Palaeoenvironmental Reconstruction from Lake Suigetsu, Japan
  Dr R Staff, Prof M Leng
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
In light of 21st century anthropogenically-influenced climatic change, one of the main scientific endeavours of our generation is to gain a fundamental understanding of the earth’s climate system.
  Constraining late Pliocene palaeoceanographic changes in the subarctic North Pacific Ocean
  Dr G Swann
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
The onset of major northern hemisphere glaciation (NHG) marked a significant threshold in the Earth's history with the transition from the relatively warm Pliocene to the colder Quaternary which was punctuated by shifts between glacial and interglacial conditions.
