  Boosting solar energy capacity of developing countries without compromising protected areas: A tool for the analysis of Satellite-retrieved data and the estimation of surface solar irradiance
  Dr H Ruiz Rondan, Dr N Chalashkanov
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
This studentship will support the delivery of the UK-Indonesia Newton fund 2019-2020 funded project 413871894 (SolarBoost), and the college contribution to the university GCRF Strategy.
  Greenhouse gas emissions from human-impacted rivers – identifying ‘hotspots’ from source-to-sea, their drivers and stability.
  Dr A Pickard, Prof S Waldron, Dr U Skiba
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Overview. Inland freshwater systems are sources to the atmosphere of greenhouse gases (GHGs) and as such, their importance in global GHG budgets is increasingly recognised.
  Modelling environmental controls on different dune forms in central Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA)
  Dr S McLaren, Dr J Kaduk
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Active sand seas are present in many arid environments across the globe. Normally associated with hot, dry conditions their location, extent and dune forms, are key indicators of past and current environmental processes.
  Diagnosing the reasons for biodiversity decline in rural rivers
  Dr I Vaughan
Application Deadline: 17 December 2018
Rivers are biodiversity hotspots, but are subject to manifold pressures such as abstraction, pollution and impoundment, and have some of the highest extinction rates of any ecosystem [1].
  Quantifying the relative importance of extrinsic and intrinsic drivers of individual behaviour and habitat use of hefted sheep on a biodiverse but fragile upland ecosystem.
  Dr S D Twiss, Dr R Baxter, Dr M Morecroft, Mr M Furness
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
The unenclosed upland areas of the UK are internationally important for wildlife and of high nature conservation value. However, these fragile habitats are subject to various threats including the impacts of climate change, atmospheric pollution deposition, acid rain and grazing pressures.
  The development of methods for representation and reasoning over Maori knowledge and worldviews relating to land
  Dr K Stock, Prof H Guesgen
Application Deadline: 20 December 2018
We have an exciting PhD opportunity within the Massey Geoinformatics Collaboratory at Massey University, in Auckland, New Zealand, working with Dr Kristin Stock and Professor Hans Guesgen in the area of representation and reasoning of Maori knowledge about land.
  Quantifying the value of pollinators in biodiversity conservation (DICKSUBIO19ARIES) [CASE project with Flora and Fauna International]
  Dr L Dicks, Dr R Davies, Dr M Klailova, Dr M Molokwu
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
This is a CASE project with Flora and Fauna International. Scientific background. Pollinator decline is an issue of global concern, with a wide range of potential impacts on biodiversity, human society and wellbeing [1,2].

  Prof R Warren, Dr J Price, Dr J Pearce-Higgins
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Scientific background. Climate change is affecting biodiversity. Species distributions are changing and spring is advancing. In the future, risks are projected to be much greater.
  Examining the erratic record of Scotland’s glacially and fluvially modified landscape
  Dr L L Kirstein, Dr R Walcott, Prof S Mudd, Dr A Hein
Application Deadline: 10 January 2019
Project summary. Scotland’s land surface is the product of plate tectonics modified by surface processes and extensively reconfigured by glacial erosion.
