Funding Type

PhD Type

CENTA is a consortium of research intensive Universities and research institutes that are working together to provide excellence in doctoral research training.
  SCENARIO NERC DTP - Sensors for real-time monitoring of drinking water quality and treatment processes
  Dr D Lapworth, Dr T Bond
Application Deadline: 30 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inactivation of pathogens with chlorine is an essential part of drinking water treatment. However, chlorine also generates harmful disinfection by-products from reactions with natural organic matter (NOM).
  Linking biodiversity with function to provide indicators of tipping points in freshwater environmental risk assessment
  Prof P White, Prof J Hill, Prof L Maltby, Dr G Hodges
Application Deadline: 30 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Environmental risk assessment is used to determine the likelihood of adverse ecological effects occurring resulting from a certain chemical (or less frequently, a combination of chemicals) at a specific concentration entering the environment.
  Open to peoples, places, methods and ideas, choose The Open University for your PhD study

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Open University is unique among UK universities in combining a mission to widen access to higher education with research excellence.
  Genetic constraints on adaptive evolution
  Dr M Reuter
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research in my group aims to understand how the genetic encoding of traits affects whether and how they will respond to selection.
  Total Atmospheric Emissions from the Biosphere
  Dr W J Bloss, Dr L Kramer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The dominant source of hydrocarbons to the atmosphere is vegetation – biogenic volatile organic compounds or BVOCs. In the atmosphere, BVOCs undergo chemical processing, leading to the formation of secondary pollutants such as ozone and organic aerosol particles, affecting human and environmental health and climate.

  Microbial life and activity on glaciers and in Arctic soils
  Research Group: Earth Surface Science
  Dr J Bradley, Dr A Jungblut, Prof K Heppell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Arctic plays host to a diverse range of microorganisms, including bacteria, algae, and viruses.
  Microbial survival in the energy-limited deep biosphere
  Research Group: Earth Surface Science
  Dr J Bradley, Prof M Trimmer, Prof L Belyea
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The deep subsurface biosphere contains a vast proportion of Earth’s microbial life and organic carbon. In deep, energy-limited settings, microorganisms persist over extraordinarily long timescales with very slow metabolisms – constituting an important analogue to the potential for life beyond Earth.
