  Carbon Down the Drain: Controls on DOC production and transport in oil palm plantations and forests on tropical peatland
  Prof S Page, Dr M Whelan
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Tropical peatlands are dense, long-term stores of carbon (C) that are vital components of global C soil-atmosphere exchange processes.
  Instability in peat: developing and undertaking new types of experiments to establish how peat fails in response to different types of external forcing
  Dr A P Dykes
Applications accepted all year round
Peat mass movements are relatively common geomorphological events in UK and Irish uplands. In recent years several significant peat landslides have been caused by engineering work, usually construction of access roads for onshore windfarm projects.
  How are our peatlands eroding? Using fine scale ‘roughness signatures’ to quantify soil and carbon losses via different erosion mechanisms
  Dr M Smith, Prof A Baird, Prof J Warburton
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
"Peatlands form an important terrestrial carbon store, comprising 30-50% of all carbon stored in soils worldwide (Gorham, 1991) much of which is at risk of degradation through climate change (Gallego-Sala and Prentice, 2013), increasing its susceptibility to erosion.
  Carbon dynamics of pre-and post-fire moorlands in upland Britain
  Prof P Hughes, Dr B.J. Robroek, Dr J Leyland
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Programme website. http://inspire-dtp.ac.uk. Project Rationale. Peatlands are critical terrestrial carbon (C) stores and may store up to 17% of the global soil carbon stock [1].
  Past and present spatial patterning in the newly-discovered peat swamp forest environments of the central Congo Basin
  Dr I Lawson
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
The aim of this PhD studentship is to contribute to the NERC-funded CongoPeat project, which involves a team from the Universities of Leeds, St Andrews, Edinburgh, Leicester, Nottingham, and Exeter, and many project partners, and which aims to better understand the development, contemporary function and future of the Congo Basin peat swamp forests.
  Mechanical modelling of the stability of Earth’s peatland carbon reservoirs
  Dr M Hubbard, Dr D Brown, Dr D Large, Dr B Muljadi
Applications accepted all year round
School of Mathematical Sciences - 4-year PhD Scholarship. Mechanical modelling of the stability of Earth’s peatland carbon reservoirs.
  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.
  NERC Reconstructing past temperatures from the terrestrial Southern Hemisphere over the last 20,000 years
  Dr B.D.A. Naafs
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
A NERC GW4 +DTP2 Project. Project PDF. https://www.bristol.ac.uk/media-library/sites/chemistry/documents/Reconstructing%20past%20temperatures%20from%20the%20terrestrial%20Southern%20Hemisphere%20-%20GW4%20%20NERC%20DTP%202019.pdf.
  School of Geographical and Earth Sciences - Understanding ecohydrological dynamics in intact tropical peatlands: a biogeochemical approach
  Prof J Toney, Dr K.H. Roucoux
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
The Biomarkers for Environmental and Climate Science (BECS) research group at the University of Glasgow is looking to recruit an excellent PhD student to assess carbon storage and ecosystem dynamics through biomarker approaches in recently discovered tropical peatlands of northern Peru.
  Microbial methane cycling in Scottish peatlands
  Research Group: Institute of Life and Earth Sciences
  Dr J Pratscher, Prof P A Wookey
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Peatlands are one of Scotland’s most important natural assets, cover over 20% of Scotland’s land area, and they are estimated to store around 1,600 Mt of carbon.
