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.
  Social impacts of decision-making processes under wildlife conservation conflicts in Scotland
  Research Group: Applied Ecology Research Group (AERG)
  Dr H Wheeler, Dr N Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

  Developing geospatial methods for resource assessments of renewable energy technologies
  Prof R McKenna, Dr A Maheri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Energy planning processes require detailed data relating to the technical potential and associated costs of renewable energies. These data are employed by stakeholders and researchers to inform decision-making relating to future energy systems.
  Holocene rapid climate change and vegetation response in Cappadocia, Turkey
  Dr W J Eastwood, Dr J P Sadler
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University—Design Cluster PhD Opportunities

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University is now offering PhD opportunities at Design cluster, and we welcome applications from high caliber candidates interested in pursuing a research degree in the areas listed below.
  What is on at Downtown? Places, People and Movement in an Urban and Digital Age (Advert Reference: SF19/BL/EIS/DILAVER)
  Dr O Dilaver, Prof D Charles
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Urbanisation and digital transformation are two facets of extensive societal change. The former presents a unique dilemma. while more people are attracted to cities around the world, many city centres - the quintessential core of this attraction - are deserted to decay.
  Saving the planet through carbon recycling: engineering bacterial capture of gasified waste for bioplastics production
  Dr K Winzer, Prof N Minton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change caused by the release of greenhouse gases from fossil fuels and through change of land use threatens life on our planet.
  Writing the royal forest of Windsor: literature in a contested landscape, 1600-1820
  Dr P Bullard, Dr R Bullard
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project examines ways in which the literary “space” of texts by, about, or produced in Windsor Forest during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries maps on to, challenges, and re-imagines the geographical, topographical and cultural spaces of the Forest.
  PhD in Ecology and Environment: how ecosystems, and the species they contain, respond to environmental change and how to reduce and mitigate adverse impacts
  Dr C Voigt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Environmental change threatens biodiversity, altering ecosystem processes and provision of ecosystem services. These environmental change pressures are accelerating due to growing human populations and accompanying climate change, land use, pollution and invasive species.
  Understanding signalling networks underpinning key developmental processes during plant evolution
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr J C Coates
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants first appeared on land almost half a billion years ago. All land plants likely evolved from a single aquatic green algal ancestor.
