  Distribution modelling and the management and conservation of European ectomycorrhizal communities
  Dr M Bidartondo, Dr C D L Orme
Application Deadline: 23 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project, the student will develop cutting-edge distributional models of dominant ectomycorrhizal (ECM) fungal species across Europe and establish vital practice and policy recommendations for the monitoring, management and conservation of these ecologically critical organisms.

  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.
  Microplastic-sediment interactions (MiPSi)
  Research Group: Earth Surface Science
  Dr K Spencer, Prof G Wharton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The accelerating global release of microplastics (mP) into the aquatic environment seems inevitable, with long-term consequences for water quality and biodiversity.
  Past intermediate and deep ocean circulation during sustained periods of warmth
  Research Group: Earth Surface Science
  Dr H Ford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ocean is absorbing much of the heat and carbon dioxide emissions related to human caused climate change, but the long-term impacts on heat transport, carbon cycling and deep ocean circulation are poorly understood.
  Quantification of the impact of changing vegetation on hillslope sediment transport
  Research Group: Earth Surface Science
  Dr S Grieve, Dr E Lines
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hillslope sediment transport exists on a continuum from the gradual downslope motion of particles, termed soil creep, to catastrophic shallow landslides and debris flows.
