  Field scale reconstruction of nineteenth century rural land use using first County Series OS maps and parish area books
  Prof N S Walford, Dr D Brown
Applications accepted all year round
The project will explore agricultural land use change in mid-nineteenth century England, which was a period of relatively high prosperity and stability before the onset of an era of decline and depression from the early 1870s through to the twentieth century.
  Funded PhD Studentship: Analysing energy and resources use under different climate scenarios in a circular economy for islands
  Dr C Spataru
Application Deadline: 27 April 2019
Geographical islands suffer from several barriers, most of them relying on oil imports, exposing them to the volatility of international markets.
  Determining the Spatial and Temporal Distribution of Macro- and Micro-plastics in Soil and Their Impact on Soil Function
  Dr E Pagaling, Prof L Dawson, Dr S Devalla, Dr R Prabhu
Application Deadline: 5 April 2019
Current global production of plastics has reached over 300 million metric tons and is predicted to reach 1200 million metric tons by 2050.
  Solar photovoltaic and environment interactions: developing understanding and embedding co-benefits into the low carbon energy transition
  Dr A Armstrong
Application Deadline: 18 April 2019
Decarbonisation of energy supplies is triggering notable land use change across the world. To date there is relatively limited understanding of the consequences of this land use change yet considerable opportunity to embed ecosystem co-benefits.
  Developing Risk-Based Approaches to Modelling Phosphorus Contamination in Agricultural Catchments
  Dr M Glendell, Prof A J Wade, Dr P-E Mellander, Dr N Schurch
Application Deadline: 30 April 2019
Phosphorus (P) pollution remains a major cause of surface water quality failures under the Water Framework Directive. Abating P pollution in agricultural catchments requires informed decisions about the likely effectiveness of land management mitigation measures and their spatial targeting.
  Land Justice and Human Rights: using international and regional human rights mechanisms to protect land and land users.
  Prof R Freedman
Applications accepted all year round
Traditionally, issues relating to land have fallen outside of the international human rights matrix.
  Soil health metrics for sustainable agricultural systems
  Dr S Haefele
Application Deadline: 15 April 2019
Why is this project important?. Soil is the foundation of all agricultural systems. It is a complex biophysical system of aggregated particles and pore networks that, if managed carefully, provides plants with the medium for roots to grow and extract water and nutrients in order to produce food and fibre.
  Holocene rapid climate change and vegetation response in Cappadocia, Turkey
  Dr W J Eastwood, Dr J P Sadler
Applications accepted all year round
Multi-proxy approaches to integrated regional studies of environmental variability during the late Glacial and Holocene can provide valuable insights into the ways that significant shifts in climate have affected natural ecosystems, landscapes and human activities over decadal, centennial and millennial timescales.
  Impacts of land-use change on tropical biodiversity
  Dr D Edwards
Applications accepted all year round
Tropical land-use change is a core driver of the global extinction and climate change crises. In the Edwards lab, we use field research, economic assessment and rigorous statistical analyses to determine the impacts of tropical land-use change on biodiversity, carbon stocks and other ecosystem services.
  Conservation management of threatened New Zealand insects
  Dr T Murray
Applications accepted all year round
New Zealand has a global reputation for being at the forefront of threatened species conservation.
