  Redefining Single Use Plastics: Life Cycle Analysis
  Dr RH Rothman, Prof P. Styring
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
There is currently > 7.3 billion tons of plastic in the Earth System, rising to 40 Bt by 2050. ~10 Mt of plastics reach the oceans every year; 12 Bt are projected to be in landfill by 2050.
  Microplastics as conduits of flame retardants in birds feeding on landfills
  Dr M Abdallah, Dr S J Reynolds
Applications accepted all year round
There is increasing evidence of widespread ingestion of plastics by birds, mistaking it for food, during foraging. The demonstrated effects of plastic ingestion by birds include.
  Synthetic and Mechanistic Studies into Enzymatic Degradation of Waste Plastics
  Dr L Wong, Dr C F Blanford
Application Deadline: 1 April 2019
Applications are invited for an EPSRC-funded PhD studentship in the general area of biological chemistry. Plastics are a broad range of solid polymeric materials that have found widespread application as industrial components and consumer goods.
  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.
  Microplastics as conduits of flame retardants in birds feeding on landfills
  Dr M Abdallah, Dr S. J Reynolds
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
There is increasing evidence of widespread ingestion of plastics by birds, mistaking it for food, during foraging. The demonstrated effects of plastic ingestion by birds include.
  Modelling microplastic dispersal, settling and distribution in estuarine environments
  Dr R Dorrell, Dr C Hackney, Prof D Parsons
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).
  Plastics in fishmeal production from marine sources- characterisation, methods and risk modelling
  Dr M Hudson, Prof J Langley, Dr R Marsh, Prof I Williams
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
Fishmeal makes an important contribution to global food security, providing an essential nutritional component in feed manufacture for aquaculture and livestock…
  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.
  MOSAIC: Microplastics in Scotland and Northern Ireland Catchment and Marine Environments - QUADRAT
  Dr D Muirhead, Dr R Flood
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The current understanding of microplastic flux between terrestrial and marine environments is extremely limited and considered primarily in ‘pristine environments’ (e.g., Arctic ice).
  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.
