  Ironing out the carbon cycle: Carbon burial associated with iron oxides in Arctic shelf sediments
  Dr C Marz, Prof C.L. Peacock
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
As marine geoscientists, we are interested in the capability of the world’s oceans to sequester atmospheric CO2 into photosynthetic algal biomass, and to ultimately lock it away in seafloor sediments when this biomass dies and sinks to the ocean depths.
  Quantification of sediment organic matter fractions at Crose Mere, Shropshire FTNIRS and FTIRS
  Dr J Boyle, Prof R Chiverell
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Palaeolimnological assessment of recent environmental change, building quantitative records of past states that pre-date instrumental measurements, has dramatically strengthened our understanding of current ecosystem functioning, enabling political and management decisions by providing firm evidence of both the existence of change, and of its causes.
  Dissecting the microbial foodweb: determining the influence of phytoplankton derived organic matter substrates on bacterial growth efficiency
  Dr C Evans, Prof C Moore
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Project Rationale. Bacterial growth plays a key role in regulating carbon and nutrients fluxes, and energy flow in marine ecosystems.
  Organic wastes and food, energy and water provision in Sub-Saharan Africa
  Dr J Smith, Prof P Hallett
Applications accepted all year round
Globally, over 2.8 billion people still rely on unsustainable solid biomass for cooking and heating, of which ~2.2 billion (78%) live in rural areas.
  Fracture permeability response to the gas adsorption/desorption process in organic rocks by coupled Hydro–Mechanical modelling
  Dr G Quan, Dr K Wu
Applications accepted all year round
Gas adsorption/desorption is an essential process related to gas transport in fractured organic rocks, such as coals and organic-rich shales.
  Mesoscale simulations of organic solar cells
  Prof A Walker
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Organic photovoltaics (OPVs) show much promise for next-generation solar cells thanks to their low cost, and the fact that they are flexible and can be printed over large areas.
  How will climate change affect organic matter exported from peat?
  Dr C Moody, Prof P Chapman
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Peatlands cover only 2.8% of the Earth but store 50% of the global soil carbon pool and 10% of the world’s freshwater.
  Metal-organic nanosheets (MONs): Programmable 2D materials for use as sensors, catalysts, membranes and devices
  Dr J Foster
Applications accepted all year round
Two-dimensional nanomaterials such as graphene hold enormous potential for use in advanced electronics, energy, separation and composite materials applications.
  A better understanding of environmental impact through ultrahigh resolution mass spectrometry and organic geochemistry
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr M Barrow
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Project Highlights. State-of-the-art mass spectrometry instrumentation (amongst world-leading). International environmental research.
  Two-Dimensional Assembly of Functional Organic Molecular Networks
  Dr A-J Avestro, Prof D K Smith
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Two-dimensional nanomaterials—such as graphene and its composites—hold enormous potential for use in advanced electronics, energy, separation, and even lubrication materials applications.
