  Understanding the role of clay mineral redox reactions for metal contaminant fate
  Dr A Neumann
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project is part of the ONE Planet DTP. Find out more here. https://research.ncl.ac.uk/one-planet/. Anthropogenic actitivies have in the past and continue today to pollute water and terrestrial ecosystems with metal contaminants.
  An integrated carbon capture and conversion process to produce mineral products for large-scale use
  Dr W Afzal, Dr M S Imbabi
Applications accepted all year round
Increasing demand for clean energy has led to significant research towards the development of energy-efficient and environment-friendly technological solutions of carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) which encompasses methods to remove CO2 from the flue gas and from the atmosphere, recycling the CO2 for utilization and safe storage options.
  Arctic Mineral Dust Fluxes: quantification, drivers and impacts
  Prof J E Bullard
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Reference number. CENTA18-LU3. Start date. October 1st 2019. Closing date. January 21st 2019. Interview date. Week beginning February 11th 2019.
  The environmental trade-offs of mining in a biodiversity hotspot
  Dr S Willcock
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Historically nations have traded-off environmental degradation to achieve economic development. However, a turning point is sometimes observed above a certain level of wealth where countries invest in pro-environmental efforts.
  (MERI) High temperature properties of airborne dusts and their behaviour in aircraft engines
  Research Group: Atmospheric Science
  Dr M Jones, Dr A Pawley, Prof M Gallagher
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
CASE STUDENTSHIP WITH ROLLS-ROYCE. Every year, an estimated 2,000 million tonnes of dust is carried up into the atmosphere, mainly during sand and dust storms.
  (MERI) Plagioclase: a leaky vessel? The fidelity of plagioclase-hosted melt inclusion records of magmatic processes
  Research Group: Geoscience
  Dr M Hartley, Dr D Neave, Dr M Polacci
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
The compositions of stored, pre-eruptive magmas are often investigated through the study of melt inclusions.
  (STFC DTP) Volatile processing during planetary differentiation: insights from Asteroid 4 Vesta
  Research Group: Isotope Geochemistry & Planetary Science
  Dr B O'Driscoll, Prof R Burgess, Dr R Garwood
Application Deadline: 11 February 2019
Introduction. Image looking down at Vesta’s north pole. This image of Vesta was taken from the last sequence of images of NASA’s Dawn spacecraft, looking down at Vesta’s north pole.
  Soil microbes to mitigate climate change
  Dr J Whitaker, Prof N Ostle
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Why is this project important?. Human populations are expected to increase by 50% to 9 billion by 2050 as climate change continues – together these changes will place unprecedented pressure on the Earth’s finite and fragile natural resources.
  Species identification of compromised bone: An analytical study
  Dr C E Greenwood
Application Deadline: 8 February 2019
Anthropologists are often asked to identify human bone within forensic and mass disaster cases, where in many instances the bone has been compromised through thermal alteration, or diagenetic processes (archaeological bone).
  Evaluation of mining lagoon silt as a suitable medium for restoring land to arable conditions
  Dr R Sakrabani
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
CENTA2 is a consortium of research intensive Universities and research institutes that are working together to provide excellence in doctoral research training.
