  Chemical pollution and biodiversity: assessing risk to ecosystem services.
  Prof L L Maltby
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chemicals are a critical part of modern life and a cornerstone of any modern industrial strategy. However, chemicals released into the environment can have adverse effects on biodiversity and the benefits it provide to people (i.e.

  Dr X Geng
Application Deadline: 29 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Overview. With 71% of the earth’s surface covered by water, hydro-hazards, including floods, droughts, onshore and offshore landslides and storm surges, can pose direct threats to lives and impact livelihoods by damaging and destroying critical lifeline infrastructure (e.g.
  Drivers of marine ecosystem change during an ancient abrupt global warming event
  Dr K Edgar, Dr R Butler
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Palaeocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM) ~56 million years ago, is the largest of a series of abrupt global warming events known from the Cenozoic.
  Early Stage Researcher (PhD Student) position in ecology and ecotoxicology.
  Prof L L Maltby, Prof P Warren
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding the potentially negative impacts of chemicals on ecosystems is essential to managing them sustainably. In particular, we need to understand the effects of chemicals on the direct and indirect contributions that ecosystems make to human well-being (i.e.
  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.
  Cave exploration: shedding light on organic sulfur cycling in a terrestrial underground chemosynthetic system
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr H Schaefer, Dr Y Chen, Dr D Kumaresan
Application Deadline: 29 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Highlights. Investigate the organic sulfur cycle of a closed cave ecosystem based on chemosynthesis. Apply stable isotope and metagenomics approaches to characterise uncultivated bacteria.
  Ecosystem resilience to pathogens: understanding the interplay between pathogen host shifts and coevolutionary dynamics (Funded by the QUEX Institute)
  Dr J Engelstaedter
Application Deadline: 15 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pathogens are an inevitable part of every ecosystem. In humans as well as in livestock and natural systems, the majority of pathogens have only arrived in their host species relatively recently, by switching from a different host species.
  Global diversity and ecosystem functions of plant-microbe symbioses
  Prof G Bending, Assoc Prof C Quince, Dr R Griffiths, Prof M Ryan
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Arbuscular mycorrhizas (AM) are the most widespread symbiosis between higher plants and fungi, and have major impacts on terrestrial ecosystem processes, including biogeochemical cycling and the diversity and productivity of plant communities.
  Optimising HPC applications for the Arm ecosystem
  Dr M Weiland, Dr O Perks
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the past couple of years, Arm processors have been shown to be a viable alternative to Intel or AMD CPUs for HPC systems. 2018 and 2019 saw the installation of a number of Arm-based supercomputer in the US and Europe.
  Mine site restoration and ecosystem development
  Prof M Tibbett
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will include various aspect of minesite rehabilitation including early development of terrestrial ecosystems and the nutritional constraints to ecosystem development (plants and soil biota) using a space-for-time substiution appraoch.
  A lab on a chip: using nano-plasmonics tongues for building miniaturized ecosystem sensors (SUPER DTP)
  Research Group: Scottish Oceans Institute
  Dr L Boehme
Application Deadline: 1 June 2020

Funding Type
