  SCENARIO: Quantifying the flow and nutrient dynamic changes for a major flood relief scheme in the lower River Thames to better manage water quality and aquatic ecology
  Dr M Bowes, Mr M Clegg, Dr S Robinson, Dr M Hutchins
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
The Thames basin is very densely populated, containing one fifth of the UK population. It floods regularly, and climate change projections suggest that flooding will increase over the coming century, with 15,000 homes being at risk of inundation within the lower reaches of the catchment.
  Measuring and assessing impact of cash and voucher distribution in humanitarian aid
  Dr S De leeuw
Applications accepted all year round
For decades the humanitarian sector has relied on providing material assistance to beneficiaries during disaster relief. These days there is a growing importance in the provision of cash and vouchers that can be exchanged for goods as needed.
  Spatio-temporal dynamics of plague vectors in Madagascar: using population genetics and landscape scale modelling to inform disease reduction strategies
  Dr S Telfer, Dr S Helyar
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Many emerging diseases are zoonotic (transmitted from animal to human), with human exposure typically higher in low income countries.
  Long-term performance and sustainability of post-disaster housing projects (Advert Reference: RDF19/EE/ABE/WEDAWATTA)
  Dr G Wedawatta
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
One of the four key priorities of the Sendai Framework of Action 2015-2030 (1) is to ‘Build Back Better’ in recovery, rehabilitation and reconstruction.

  Developing and evaluating a primary care navigation intervention for children and young people who have dental pain
  Dr V Muirhead
Applications accepted all year round
Background. A significant proportion of children still suffer from dental problems that cause acute pain despite massive improvements in children’s oral health in the UK [1].
  Bioprospecting for plant growth promoting microbes
  Dr T Mauchline, Dr I Clark
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019
Naturally occurring soil microbes resident in the root microbiome, offer potential to contribute to sustainable intensification of agriculture and reduce the use of agrochemicals.
  PhD in Geographical and Earth Sciences – Decoding tectonics and climate effects in incipient mountains: the Sierra Nevada (southern Spain) case study
  Dr C Persano, Prof A Densmore, Dr D Fabel, Prof T Hoey
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
This project aims to constrain the evolving topography of mountain belts and to understand how mountains grow. Constraining how topography of mountains change with time, therefore, is crucial for understanding sediment delivery to the basins and changes in atmospheric circulation.
  (BBSRC DTP CASE) Development of novel peptide hydrogel therapies for endometriosis and endometrial cancer
  Prof K Marshall, Prof A Miller, Dr D Fischer
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Background. Endometrial cancer and endometriosis are common gynaecological disorders, which arise from the uterine lining. Cancer develops by glandular cell differentiation, whilst implantation and growth of endometrial-like tissue in endometriosis induces a chronic inflammatory reaction causing pain and infertility.
