  (MERI) Irrigation poverty traps in the Eastern Gangetic Plains
  Research Group: Molecular Environmental Sciences
  Dr T Foster, Prof D Polya
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
Agriculture is central to the livelihoods of millions of rural households across South Asia. For the majority of smallholder farmers in this region, the dominant source of irrigation water supply is groundwater.
  Groundwater and nutrient dynamics in heterogeneous agricultural catchments - QUADRAT
  Dr J C Comte, Dr U Ofterdinger
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
In Irish and Scottish agricultural regions, groundwater is increasingly recognised as a major pathway for water and nutrient inputs to streams [1].
  Groundwater and the Drinking Water Exposome in the United Kingdom (Supervisors: Prof D Polya, Prof R Wogelius, Prof D Gooddy (British Geological Survey) and Dr B Marchant (British Geological Survey)
  Research Group: Molecular Environmental Sciences
  Prof D Polya, Prof R Wogelius
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
Groundwater contributes over 6300 Ml/day to the overall public water supply in the UK – corresponding to around 30 % of supply (British Geological Survey, 2015).
  SCENARIO: Evaluating the impact of woodland management and drinking water abstraction on groundwater-fed wetlands
  Dr J Clark, Prof A Verhoef, Dr D Macdonald, Ms D Wilkinson
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Healthy, well-functioning natural wetlands are critically important, yet the world is rapidly losing these important habitats due to anthropogenic pressures (Ramsar Convention on Wetlands 2018).
  The Impact of Thermal Plumes on Aquifer Properties and Groundwater Quality
  Dr U Ofterdinger, Dr J C Comte
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
"Global energy needs are steadily rising with a predicted increase of 45% within the next 15 years. In the long-term, sustainable energy is hoped to connect economic growth to increased social equity while preserving natural resources in line with the UN sustainable development goals.
  Isotopic characterisation of methane and ethane within groundwater aquifers: assessing sources, flow pathways and the impact of shale gas exploration in the Vale of Pickering, UK
  Dr A Smith
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Hydraulic fracturing (‘fracking’) is highly controversial with public concerns over environmental impacts, not least the risks to groundwater.
  SCENARIO: Nutrient release from coniferous woodland stimulated by changes in forest management: A new nitrate time bomb?
  Prof M Lukac, Mr M Ascott, Dr E Vanguelova
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Nitrogen (N) pollution of rivers and groundwater costs billions of pounds per year globally in water treatment and environmental damage from eutrophication.
  PhD Studentship in The fate and impacts of microplastics in freshwater systems
  Dr T Bond, Dr M Felipe-Sotelo, Dr D Lapworth
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
It has been estimated there are between 5 and 50 trillion plastic particles on the surface of the ocean. Microplastics are typically defined as particles.
  Developing new environmentally-friendly solutions for well plugging and abandonment (well P&A)
  Dr A Sharifi, Dr R Rafati
Applications accepted all year round
Hydrocarbon leakage from subsurface environments has been a critical concern for groundwater resources and atmospheric pollutions.
  Experimental study and data mining of microbial enhanced oil recovery processes
  Dr A Sharifi, Dr R Rafati
Applications accepted all year round
Enhanced oil recovery processes have been developing fast over the last 2 decades to improve both the economics and efficiency of hydrocarbon recovery.
