  Quantifying Globally Significant Carbon Sequestration in Large River Systems. PhD in Geography (NERC GW4+ DTP)
  Prof R Aalto
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Prof Rolf Aalto, Department of Geography, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter. Additional Supervisors.
  River Soar Natural Flood Management: Bringing together local scale impacts and catchment scale strategies
  Dr I Pattison
Application Deadline: 22 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Flooding, and management, cost the UK £2.2billion per year. Under current economic pressures, flood policy is shifting from entirely flood defenses to broader management strategies.
  Water Engineering: Complex Natural River Flow Modelling and Flood Analysis
  Research Group: Centre For Sustainable Environments
  Dr J Pu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The study on flooding, and identifying suitable ways to mitigate floods, have become a top priority for Government and the Environmental Agency, due to increasing flood frequency and intensity around the UK.
  Benefits of cooperation in transboundary river basins
  Dr C Rouge
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is an ideal project for a resourceful and driven individual. The successful candidate will develop and hone first-rate analytical, computational and communication skills that will enable them to choose their subsequent career path, whether in academia or industry.
  Biology of the invasive Chinese mitten crab in the river Thames
  Prof D Morritt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Chinese mitten crab, Eriocheir sinensis, is an invasive brachyuran crab species (one of the top 100 most invasive species) that is now well established in the River Thames and tributaries.
  The earliest Lower Palaeolithic of the Middle Thames: Re-assessing the chronology and distribution of the high-level ancient river terraces
  Dr R Hosfield, Dr S Black
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The majority of Britain’s earliest Palaeolithic sites are associated with estuaries and/or the lower reaches of major rivers. This distribution of sites suggests that the earliest colonisers may have been restricted to coastal habitats, with their milder micro-climates and distinctive resources.
  Investigating the impact of climate change on riverine flooding (Advert Reference: SF18/MCE/MOTTA)
  Dr D Motta
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Riverine flooding evaluation typically includes a hydrologic analysis to estimate the flood peak discharge or hydrograph for a reference return period, and a hydraulic model to compute the corresponding water surface elevations and flooded areas.
  NERC GW4+ DTP studentship: Understanding the fate and potential impact of nano-plastics in freshwater organisms and ecosystems
  Prof I Durance, Prof P Borri
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is a growing realisation that the widespread use and degradation of plastics has created a legacy of plastic pollution. Mass balance studies have suggested that a large proportion of release plastics waste may now be present as micro- nano-scale particles.
  The identification of micro-pollutants in waste water using structural alerts and high resolution liquid chromatography mass spectrometry with non-targeted analysis
  Dr J Roberts, Dr M McNaughtan, Dr J MacLachlan, Dr D Watson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCEBE-19-025. The environmental problems associated with micro-pollutants such as pharmaceuticals and personal care products reaching water courses from waste water effluent are well documented.
  Invasive species and water resources: developing the evidence base for effective mitigation to prevent the spread of invasive non-native species through water transfer networks
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Dr A M Dunn, Prof M Tillotson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Invasive Non Native Species (INNS) cost the UK over £2bn pa and are an increasing threat to aquatic biodiversity and ecosystems.
