  Assessing the Energy Return on Investment of future energy systems and implications for the wider economy
  Dr P Brockway, Prof P Taylor, Dr L Brand Correa
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The issue. Energy return on investment (EROI) is measure of the net energy available to society (after taking account of the energy used in energy production).
  Devonian Tropical Plant Assemblages from Arctic Svalbard
  Dr C Berry
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Project Background. The Devonian period (419-359 million years ago) is the critical time in Earth history when land plants evolved from being ankle high simple branched naked twigs to being leafy trees growing in complex forest ecosystems (Stein et al.
  Brain evolution in pre-mammalian cynodonts and the role of intraspecific variation
  Dr S Lautenschlager
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Modern mammals are distinguished from other vertebrate groups by a number of distinctive characters, which include the trend towards a large brain (in comparison to body size) and an expanded neocortex.
  Ecological Function of a Water-sensing Molecular Fossil
  Research Group: Institute of Life and Earth Sciences
  Dr P C Morris, Dr J Thompson, Dr R Alexander
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Abiotic stress tolerance in plants is a critical attribute and a key objective for plant breeders. The world is experiencing unprecedented increases in average global temperatures and extreme weather events leading to intermittent periods of drought and waterlogging (water stress).
  Carbon footprint of novel uses of organic wastes for sustainable production of chemicals and materials
  Dr J Smith, Dr D Vega-Maza
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
There is an urgent global need to develop new and innovative strategies for the sustainable production of chemicals and materials using renewable feedstocks and renewable energy.
  An integrated thermal to electrical energy conversion system
  Dr H Cao, Prof Y Ding
Applications accepted all year round
This PhD project aims to develop a novel hybrid system that can store all source of heat (e.g.
  Ecology and evolution of early life on land: arthropod diversity and interactions
  Dr X Ma
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Additional Supervisors. Dr. Greg Edgecombe FRS, Department of Earth Sciences, the Natural History Museum,. Dr. Paul Kenrick, Department of Earth Sciences, the Natural History Museum.
  NERC Panorama Doctoral Training Partnership - The effect of extreme climatic change on insect-plant interactions during the Jurassic
  Dr B Caswell
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The increases in atmospheric concentrations of CO2 (pCO2), that are associated with climate change, cause decreases in the nutritional value of plants to the herbivorous insects that feed upon them.
  3D quantitative analysis of textures in palaeobiology: environments, taphonomy and exceptional preservation
  Prof M Purnell, Prof S E Gabbott
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The roughness or texture of surfaces is intuitively obvious and, at a course scale, easily discernible through touch and sight. We can see and feel that some bedding surfaces are rougher than others, or that some parts of an exceptionally preserved fossils appear smoother than the matrix, or other parts of the fossil.
  Returning to the Ocean: The Transitional Mechanics of Legged Whales
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Dr W Sellers, Dr L Margetts
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
Darwinian evolution, descent with modification, is elegantly supported by the primary evidence that maps change within recognisable lineages in the fossil record.
