  Microfibre release from textiles leading to environmental pollution (Ref: SF20/APP/SHERIDAN)
  Dr KJ Sheridan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Textile production is one of the world’s major polluters, and consumes vast water and energy resources. Fibre content of garments has been trending away from natural fibres towards synthetic fibres such as polyester and polyamide.
  Research opportunities in the Department of Environment and Geography

Funding Type

PhD Type

We offer an outstanding, dynamic and multidisciplinary environment in which to carry out PhD research. MPhil/PhD in Human Geography and Environment.

  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr J M Pearson, Prof G Bending
Application Deadline: 29 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Highlights. Developing novel methods to track and analyse microplastics. Design mesocosms to study the behaviour of microplastics in riverbed sediments.
  Exploring the relationship between contemporary environmental concerns and social work
  Research Group: Social Work
  Prof S Webb, Dr H Lynch
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ref. SHLS20021 Webb. It is clear from current evidence that contemporary environmental challenges impact disproportionality on those who are socially and economically disadvantaged.
  Application of nanomaterials in precision agriculture to optimise nitrogen use efficiency and increase global food security
  Dr I Lynch, Dr S Ullah, Dr P Zhang, Mr A Witteveen
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The global agriculture sector is facing a wide spectrum of challenges such as stagnation in crop yields, notoriously low nutrient use efficiency (NUE), poor soil health, shrinking arable land and water availability etc.
  Integrated Air Quality Pollution Control Cooling System
  Prof M Kalbassi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

India is amongst array of developing countries with one of the worse air pollutions problems in the world.
  PhD in Ecology and Environment: how ecosystems, and the species they contain, respond to environmental change and how to reduce and mitigate adverse impacts
  Dr C Voigt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Environmental change threatens biodiversity, altering ecosystem processes and provision of ecosystem services. These environmental change pressures are accelerating due to growing human populations and accompanying climate change, land use, pollution and invasive species.
  The effects of air pollution on the behaviour and allergenic potential of fungi
  Dr C Pashley, Dr J Morrissey
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fungi are an essential component of the ecosystem, but cause major economic loss through crop damage and infection of domesticated animals and livestock, and affect human health through infections, toxicosis, or allergy.
  The effect of air pollution on the behaviour of bacteria
  Dr J Morrissey, Prof J Ketley, Prof P W Andrew, Prof P Monks
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is at the cutting edge of investigations of the increase in infection resulting from airborne pollution. Air pollution is the world’s largest single environmental health risk, being responsible for an eighth of all global deaths per year (World Health Organisation, 2017).
  Dynamics of pollution transport in constructed wetlands: identification and quantification of underlying physical mechanisms of solute and solid (microplastic) transport
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr S Abolfathi, Dr J M Pearson
Application Deadline: 29 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Highlights. Generation of fundamental knowledge of the performance of natural capital waste-water treatment systems – constructed wetlands – that will underpin significant investment by the water industry from 2020-2027.
  Soil microbial communities and biodegradable plastic
  Dr A Blaud, Prof I Singleton
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plastic pollution is a major problem across the globe, affecting oceans, freshwater, soil and organisms. There is an urgent need to reduce plastic pollution.
  Public health prevention within urban spaces: a citizen science enquiry.
  Dr E Carnegie, Dr L Luca Mora, Dr R Kyle
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Advantages of living in cities, with relatively high population density, include. opportunities for social interaction, education, employment, access to health diagnostics and treatment, active travel and integrated modes of transport.

  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.
  The effect of air pollution on the interaction between bacteria and bacteriophage
  Dr J Morrissey, Prof M Clokie, Dr A Millard
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Air pollution is the world’s largest single environmental health risk, being responsible for an eighth of all global deaths per year (World Health Organisation, 2017).
  Disappearing into thin air? Understanding degradation of plastic polymers in soils and freshwaters
  Dr B Surridge
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plastic pollution is one of the most pervasive threats facing global ecosystems. However, very little is known about the processes and governing factors that control the persistence of plastic polymers within environmental matrices such as soil or freshwater.
