  Land surface dynamics of global dust emission schemes to improve climate change projections
  Dr A Chappell
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Project Background. Terrestrial mineral dust emission has a profound and pervasive impact on Earth’s systems and future climate projections.
  Sustainable Management of Agricultural Soils: Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emission and Enhancing Natural Fertility
  Dr S Ullah, Prof S Krause
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Soil is fundamental to life and is vulnerable to losses in stored carbon (C) and productivity, particularly under intensive agriculture.1 For example, 133…
  Design of an emission reduction system for electricity generators with biodiesel from waste cooking oil
  Research Group: Mechanical and Process Engineering
  Dr N Rahmanian, Dr JP Li
Applications accepted all year round
Waste cooked oil, containing fat and grease, is widely available at pubs, cafes, canteens and restaurant and has a large influence on the environment.
  Satellite Observations of CO2 in support of the Paris Agreement for Emission Reduction
  Prof H Boesch, Dr J Vande Hey
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Mitigating or slowing down global warming is one of the primary challenges humankind faces in the 21st century. Globally we are already approaching a warming mark of 1°C and we are seeing effects, such as droughts, reduced snowpack, and increased forest fires.
  Novel Layered 2D Nanomaterial Heterostructures for Advanced Electron Emission Systems
  Dr M Cole
Application Deadline: 30 April 2019
Graphene and the wider family of 2D materials are an exciting platform upon which to build the next-generation of electronic devices.
  Understanding nitrous oxide “hot-spot” dynamics in upland soils
  Dr M Whelan, Dr J Kaduk
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Nitrous oxide (N2O) is a powerful greenhouse gas. It is important, therefore, to understand the factors controlling its emission – particularly from agricultural systems.
  Investigation of CO2 reduction for sustainable cement manufacturing
  Dr H Kinoshita
Application Deadline: 31 December 2018
Currently, cement industry is considered to be responsible for ~8% of man-made CO2 emission. For example, in the UK 8.96 million tonnes of cement are annually produced, which leads to 6.54 million tonnes of CO2 emission through its manufacturing process.
  Spin-orbit coupling in synthetic semiconductor-protein complexes for solar energy harvesting
  Research Group: Biological Physics
  Dr J Clark, Prof C N Hunter
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Singlet fission is a process whereby one photon creates two excited states. This two-for-one mechanism could dramatically increase solar cell efficiency (from 33% to >40%).
  Emission of greenhouse gases and volatile organic compounds from environmental plastic degradation
  Dr P Misztal, Dr N Cowan, Dr N Carslaw, Dr J F Hamilton
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
There is an opportunity for a motivated student to undertake a PhD in a topical area of environmental chemistry, studying the emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs) and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from plastic degradation.
  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Novel methods for analysis of total-body Positron Emission Tomography (PET) imaging datasets
  Research Group: Centre for Cardiovascular Science
  Dr A Tavares, Prof T Freeman
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Background. Non-invasive Positron Emission Tomography (PET) imaging provides in vivo quantification of multidimensional and multiparameter data.
