  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).
  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.
  Carbon footprint of novel uses of organic wastes for sustainable production of chemicals and materials
  Prof 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.
  Human evolution and the Ecomorphology of Tree Climbing
  Dr S K Thorpe, Dr W Sellers
Application Deadline: 8 February 2019
Bipedalism and the extraordinary manipulative abilities of the human hand, that are central to tool use and technology, are widely considered to be two of the major hallmarks of humanity.
  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.
  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.
  (MERI) 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.
  Jurassic Lagoon: learning from the ancestors of the amazing mussels - QUADRAT
  Dr A Brasier, Dr J Sigwart
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Mussels (bivalves of the family Mytilidae) are incredible animals with a long fossil history. For millions of years, populations of mussels have been able to withstand pounding waves by attaching themselves to the seafloor using threads that are one of the strongest materials found in nature.
  Biogas upgrading by means of cyclic adsorption processes
  Dr C Fernandez-Martin, Prof J Anderson
Applications accepted all year round
This project will study a frontier technology to decrease the overall current energy penalty of the biogas upgrading process.
  Biomass/CO2 Conversion to Chemicals and Energy
  Dr X Wang, Dr P Kechagiopoulos
Applications accepted all year round
Fossil fuels coal, petroleum crude oil and natural gas, as sources of thermal energy, fuels and chemicals, have been predominant in the world’s energy supply.
