  Flood and drought assessment in a human-dominated water cycle
  Dr C Rouge
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is an ideal project for a resourceful and driven individual. The successful candidate will develop and hone first-rate analytical, computational and communication skills that will enable them to choose their subsequent career path, whether in academia or industry.
  Will rising CO2 concentrations save plants from drought stress? Plant ecophysiological responses in a Free Air CO2 Enrichment experiment
  Prof M Hovenden, Dr M De Kauwe
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project presents a rare opportunity to work in one of the world’s few Free Air CO2 Enrichment (FACE) experiments, a cutting-edge global change manipulation experiment, located in southern Tasmania, Australia.
  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.
  North Tyne Crayfish Investigation.
  Dr C Walsh
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is part of the ONE Planet DTP. Find out more here. https://research.ncl.ac.uk/one-planet/.
  SALine INtrusion in coastal Aquifers (SALINA): Hydrodynamic Assessment and Prediction of Dynamic Response
  Dr G A Hamill
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Currently 53% of people live on the 10% of the earth’s surface that is within 200km of the coast. Meeting the needs of coastal communities forms one of the major challenges facing society in the 21st Century and in particular an engineering solution is needed to the provide sustainable fresh water supplies.
  Multicellular Cell Differentiation Model: The control of root hair patterning in Aspergillus thaliana
  Dr N Savage, Dr A Bishopp
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants absorb water and nutrients from the soil through hairs that grow along their roots. As such, being able to manipulate root hair numbers may be advantageous to the development of crops more resistant to drought and nutrient deficient soils.
  Guiding Deep Networks for Expert Image Labelling Using Human Gaze
  Dr M Pound
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Deep learning has proven to be extremely effective in supervised tasks, surpassing the state-of-the-art in most areas, including segmentation, classification and object localisation.
  Measuring vulnerability and resilience to climate change-induced shocks in developing economies
  Prof R Cornforth, Dr L Todman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change is already demonstrated by changes in the frequency and severity of extreme weather events.
  Computational modelling of intrinsically disordered proteins
  Dr D Nutt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Not all proteins fold into well-defined structures. These intrinsically-disordered proteins (IDPs) perform a wide variety of roles and functions within living organisms, for which their disorder is key, from binding to biomineral surfaces for controlling growth and morphology, to protecting plants against drought.
  Photoreceptor regulation of plant development
  Dr S Casson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plant growth and development is highly dependent on the light environment. Light provides energy to drive photosynthesis but light quality and quantity is also perceived by photoreceptors, which signal to regulate responses enabling plants to adapt to their environment.
