  Reducing Greenhouse Gases in Freight Transportation and Vehicle Routing Using Artificial Intelligence Methods (Advert Reference: SF19/BL/MOS/QU1)
  Dr Y Qu, Prof C Cui
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Transportation is a significant contributor to greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide and other harmful emissions such as nitrogen oxides.
  Going Circular - Addressing the Climate Emergency: calculating the greenhouse gas savings arising from adopting a circular development pathway in cities
  Dr J Williams
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The research aims to determine the reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions resulting from transitioning to a circular development pathway in cities (see http://circularcitieshub.com/ for more information).
  Development of highly stable porous composite membranes for separation of greenhouse gases
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr S Nayak, Prof S Rimmer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Metal-organic frameworks or MOFs are a class of porous materials made of metal ions and rigid organic linkers, which are known as secondary building units or SBUs.
  In-situ reduction reduction of greenhouse gases from the Athabasca oil sands tailings ponds: detailed insights using ultrahigh resolution mass spectrometry
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr M Barrow, Prof G Bending
Application Deadline: 29 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Highlights. State-of-the-art mass spectrometry instrumentation (amongst world-leading). International environmental research.
  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.
  PhD in plant soil interactions
  Prof T J Daniell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Modern agriculture relies on high inputs of reactive nitrogen fertiliser produced by the Haber-Bosch process.
  Sustainable wastewater management
  Prof B Ni
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Resources recovery from water and wastewater management through microbial and chemical processes.
  Towards a mechanistic understanding of peatland reactive nitrogen cycling
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr R Mushinski, Prof G Bending
Application Deadline: 29 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Highlights. Peatlands act as large reservoirs of organic matter; however, environmental change processes, such as increased atmospheric nitrogen deposition, may lead to large emissions of greenhouse and trace gases from these ecosystems.
  VC International Scholarship in Human-Building Interaction in a Changing Climate (HBICC): Delivering Resilience in Performance, Wellbeing, Health and Safety (eligibility criteria apply)
  Research Group: Complex Systems
  Dr J A Gwilliam, Dr P Eslambolchilar
Application Deadline: 1 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Buildings account for about one third of greenhouse gas emissions globally. exacerbated by poor maintenance, building systems inefficiencies and other human activities.
  Techno‐Economic Impact of Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS)
  Research Group: Mechanical and Process Engineering
  Dr N Rahmanian, Dr A Sharma
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The reduction of emissions of greenhouse gases is agreed in November 2016 in the Paris international agreement (IEA Dec. 2016). The agreement is expected to create a transformative change in the energy sector to combat climate change.
  The Retrieval of Atmospheric Isoprene from Satellite INstruments (RAISIN)
  Dr J Harrison, Dr E Marais
Application Deadline: 5 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Isoprene is the single most important non‐methane biogenic volatile organic compound (BVOC) in the atmosphere. Emitted from terrestrial vegetation, especially in the tropical forests, its annual emissions comprise nearly half the global BVOC budget.
  Delivering Sustainable Energy Solutions to Ports
  Prof W Holderbaum
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Ports are major sources of greenhouse gas emissions as they have to move up to 10,000 containers a day from ship to road or rail transport and correspondingly in the reverse direction from land transport onto ships.
  KESS2 Scholarship: Techno-economic Analysis of Solar Heat Farms: Hydrogen, Water or Electricity? (MbyRes)
  Dr S Carr
Application Deadline: 26 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Here is an exciting opportunity to study the application of solar heat farms (based on arrays of solar thermal collectors and/or solar photovoltaic modules), which could lead to entirely new approaches to providing low carbon heat at scale.
  What are the effects of exotic tree introduction in British forests on soil nitrogen cycle processes?
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr R Mushinski, Prof G Bending
Application Deadline: 29 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Highlights. Exotic tree species are projected to become commonplace in Britain’s forests throughout the next century. You will assess whether these exotic tree species influence a significant change in the soil microbiome as well as production of nitrogenous gases.
  Energy system modelling of decentralised energy system transitions: integrating technical, economic and social dimensions
  Dr A Maheri
Application Deadline: 21 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cities and municipalities are crucial areas of focus due to the large and growing populations living in them. But they are also complex dynamic systems, which present challenges to energy system modellers.
