  Enhancing peatland resilience to wildfire through peatland habitat restoration; building the evidence base
  Dr N Kettridge
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The recent Saddleworth Moor fire burned over 1000 hectares of UK upland, instigated a major national incident, led to the evacuation of 100 homes and placed considerable strain on UK emergency services, with even the army activated to support fire suppression.
  (MERI) Microbial controls on carbon loss from eroding and restored UK blanket peatland
  Research Group: Molecular Environmental Sciences
  Dr C Robinson, Prof J Lloyd, Prof M G Evans
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
CASE STUDENTSHIP with Moors for the Future Partnership. The blanket peatlands of the UK are important terrestrial carbon stores but are uniquely eroded because of impacts of industrial pollution, overgrazing, wildfire and climate change (Evans and Warburton, 2011 and Figure 1).
  SCENARIO: Analysis of peatland carbon dynamics using combined optical and microwave satellite data
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Prof K Morrison, Dr TL Quaife
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Peatlands are a key component of the terrestrial carbon cycle and sequester large amounts of carbon from the atmosphere. Monitoring their health and state is therefore key to understanding carbon dynamics and the important role peatlands play in the climate, and in climate change.
  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.
  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.
  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.
  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.
  PhD/Graduate Teaching Assistants (GTAs) – Geography
A fantastic opportunity to study for a fully funded doctorate whilst gaining valuable teaching experience. The Faculty of Arts and Sciences is home to a large and diverse group of disciplines with a track record of excellence in research, much of which crosses traditional disciplinary boundaries.
  Effects of changing climate on a tropical peat in Brazil: greenhouse gas sink or source?
  Dr G Abbott
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/. Campina do Encantado is a tropical low-altitude bog (at sea level) that produces methane in São Paulo State, Brazil (under Tropical Forest).
