  Can periodic sediment input signals make it through to the sedimentary archive?
  Dr R Duller, Prof P Burgess, Dr R Jerrett, Dr K Straub
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Introduction. “How can we accurately decode a sedimentary succession for periodic input sediment supply signals if we have gaps in the succession and signals are shredded?” A common assumption in stratigraphic analysis is the stratigraphic record presents us with an unbiased record of past landscapes & climate.
  Downstream dispersal and transfer of macroplastics in river systems: a travel distance approach
  Dr M Powell, Prof S E Gabbott
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Environmental pollution by synthetic polymers (plastics) is a global problem that severely impacts ecosystem form and function, human health, natural resource management and environmental aesthetics.
  Global fluvial flooding risks under climate change using a global regionalised hydrological model (HEYU19SCI-AFFJ)
  Dr H He, Prof T Osborn
Application Deadline: 28 January 2019
Globally, floods cause thousands of fatalities and huge economic losses every year. There is an increasing need for risk assessments of extreme hydro-meteorological hazards as well as sustainable water resources management.
  Modelling microplastic dispersal, settling and distribution in estuarine environments
  Dr R Dorrell, Dr C Hackney, Prof D Parsons
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Since the onset of mass production of plastics in the 1950’s the flux of plastics to the marine environment has been a growing problem (Cole at al., 2011), such that microplastic contamination of the oceans is now one of the world’s most pressing environmental concerns (Hurley et al., 2018).
  PhD/Graduate Teaching Assistants (GTAs) – Geography
A fantastic opportunity to study for a fully funded doctorate whilst gaining valuable teaching experience. The Faculty of Arts and Sciences is home to a large and diverse group of disciplines with a track record of excellence in research, much of which crosses traditional disciplinary boundaries.
  Landscape evolution modelling for enhanced geohazard risk management along the Bailong River Corridor, Gansu, China
  Dr T Dijkstra, Prof Q Liang
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Reference number. CENTA18-LU11. Start date. October 1st 2019. Closing date. January 21st 2019. Interview date. Week beginning February 11th 2019.
  Controls on the hydro-geomorphological impact of the 2017 El Niño Costero floods, northern Peru.
  Dr A Russell
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project is part of the ONE Planet DTP. Find out more here. https://research.ncl.ac.uk/one-planet/. Background.
  Climate change in the Peruvian Amazon: assessing and modelling the role of invertebrates in wood decay and carbon cycling under changing flood dynamics
  Dr K Barrett, Dr M Burns
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Accurately measuring carbon fluxes in tropical forests is important due to their role in understanding and mitigating climate change.
  Dinoflagellate cysts and palaeoenvironmental change during Cretaceous oceanic anoxic events: a study of OAE1a
  Prof I Jarvis, Prof G Gillmore
Applications accepted all year round
This project will study Cretaceous dinoflagellate cysts. It seeks to understand relationships between dinocysts, a proxy for marine nutrient availability and organic zooplankton fertility, and episodes of black shale (petroleum source rock) deposition during Oceanic Anoxic Events (OAEs) in the mid-Cretaceous.
  Flood mitigation schemes in rural communities in the south west of England
  Dr K Clarke, Dr A P Dykes, Dr M Ibsen
Applications accepted all year round
There have been several severe flood events in southwest England in recent years, including Boscastle in 2004, Dawlish in 2014 and Coverack in 2014 and July 2017.
