  Impact of Sediment Transport and Vegetation to the Reservoir Hydrodynamics within Fluvial Environment
  Research Group: Centre For Sustainable Environments
  Prof F Hu, Dr J Pu
Applications accepted all year round
Reservoirs and dams are popular control mechanisms for different water resources around the world. However, lately, there have been increasing incidences of reservoir failure linked to sediment transport and vegetation within its environment, that have caused massive financial and social impacts.
  Geophysical assessment of Lime/Clay grout injection of estuary and reservoir embankments subject to badgers burrows erosion
  Dr P Sentenac
Application Deadline: 30 September 2019
According to studies, 46 % of dams and embankments failures are due to severe internal erosion (Foster et al., 2000). Animal burrowing can lead to a preferential path for the water flow and seepage through the flood embankments that could lead to a partial or total collapse of the structure.
  Employing artificial intelligence & machine learning to optimise flood control for 21st Century cities
  Prof O Bokhove
Applications accepted all year round
Summary Rational and unique mathematical strategies for active flood control will be developed and tested in the design of flood alleviation schemes for UK rivers, such as Yorkshire’s Aire and Calder Rivers, based on increasing flood-plain storage capacity.
  North Tyne Crayfish Investigation.
  Dr C Walsh
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019
This project is part of the ONE Planet DTP. Find out more here. https://research.ncl.ac.uk/one-planet/.
  Genome mining of novel antimicrobial natural products from new bacterial strains
  Dr H Deng, Prof M Jaspars
Applications accepted all year round
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is rising to dangerously high levels in all parts of the world. In Europe alone, drug-resistant bacteria are estimated to cause 25,000 deaths annually and cost more than US$1.5 billion every year in healthcare expenses and productivity losses.
  The mathematics behind the smartness of neural networks
  Dr M S Baptista
Applications accepted all year round
Intelligence is one of the pillars that allows animals to master their environment. Scientific approaches recently proposed have been capable of simulating networked systems that reproduce similar emergent manifestations of behavior as those observed in the brain.
  Improved understanding of the Vaiont landslide based on refined modelling using updated geological information
  Dr A P Dykes
Applications accepted all year round
The Vaiont landslide occurred in 1963 in northern Italy and has perplexed researchers ever since. Recently, however, new geological information and interpretations have led to an entirely new framework for understanding the event.
  Antimicrobial behaviour of novel alloyed steels (Advert Reference: SF18/MCE/GONZALEZ SANCHEZ)
  Dr S Gonzalez Sanchez
Applications accepted all year round
In the European Union 8 to 12 % of the inhabitants risk of nosocomial infections. Hospital touch surfaces such as bed rails and handles can be a reservoir of pathogens that cause infections resulting not only in substantial economic losses but even in patient death.
  The role of glucocorticoid desulfation in chronic inflammatory disease pathophysiology
  Dr P Foster, Dr R Hardy
Applications accepted all year round
Chronic inflammatory diseases (CIDs) are a common group of highly disabling immune conditions leading to persistent inflammation and tissue-specific manifestations, such as ulcerative colitis and arthritis.
  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.
