  The impacts of marine plastics on Galapagos seabirds
  Dr M Hudson, Dr C Valle, Prof A Naveira-Garabato
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Programme website. http://inspire-dtp.ac.uk. Project Rationale. Plastic pollution is of growing concern worldwide due to poor waste management and high consumer demand for single-use plastics (Moore, 2008).
  Next generation methods for the isolation of plastic-degrading bacteria and fungi.
  Dr G Lear
Applications accepted all year round
We are currently seeking a PhD student with interests in microbiology, molecular biology and the environment to conduct research into the microbial degradation of waste plastics.
  The microbial ‘plastisphere’ – Characterisation of plastic-associated microbial communities in natural and engineered environments
  Dr G Lear
Applications accepted all year round
We are currently seeking a PhD student with interests in microbiology, molecular biology and the environment to conduct research into the microbial degradation of waste plastics.
  PhD Studentship in Polyester Plastic Recycling Using Low-cost Ionic Liquids
  Dr A Brandt-Talbot, Prof P Fennell
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
We are inviting applications of motivated candidates for a PhD studentship in the exciting field of ‘Advanced plastic recycling’.
  Plasticiser in the UK terrestrial environment: Occurrence and bioaccumulation?
  Dr D Spurgeon, Prof K C Jones, Dr M G Pereira
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Researchers and the public are aware of the potential issues of plastic pollution. Images of birds, mammals and other charismatic species entangled in and eating plastics have created great concern about our profligate plastic use.
  Plastic invasion of remote foodwebs
  Dr C Waller, Dr M Johnson
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Since the onset of mass production of plastics in the 1950’s the flux of plastics to the marine environment has been a growing problem (Cole at al., 2011), such that microplastic contamination of the oceans is now one of the world’s most pressing environmental concerns (Hurley et al., 2018).
  Plastic a new anthropogenic component of the geological cycle: its chemical and physical behaviour and transformation
  Prof S E Gabbott, Dr A Boom
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
This project will use a suite of cutting edge analytical techniques and experimental design to address an important and significant problem.
  Micro- and nanoplastics: the fate and the impact on marine life
  Dr S Yang, Dr W Norton
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
By 2015, humans had generated 8.3 billion metric tons of plastics, 6.3 billion tons of which had already become waste. Of that waste total, only 9 percent was recycled, 12 percent was incinerated and 79 percent accumulated in landfills or the natural environment.
