  How does bed topography effect turbulence and flow resistance in rivers?
  Dr J Cooper, Dr J Higham
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Introduction. This experimental project aims to develop new understanding of the role of bed topography in the generation of turbulence and flow resistance in gravel-bed rivers.
  Valuing field-scale land management interventions
  Dr T Hess, Dr A Graves
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
CENTA2 is a consortium of research intensive Universities and research institutes that are working together to provide excellence in doctoral research training.
  River temperature under change: understanding potential of riparian forest and landscape properties for climate adaptation
  Prof D M Hannah, Prof S Krause
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Background. It is expected that climate change will impact UK river ecosystems (Hannah & Garner, 2015) as a consequence of extreme low-flows and high river water temperature events (Garner et al., 2017a).
  Quantifying and modelling global large river fluxes of microplastics
  Dr C Hackney, Dr R Dorrell, 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).
  New approaches to restoration of aquatic ecosystems – Integrating catchment and coastal processes to increase flood protection in tidally influenced rivers and estuaries
  Prof M Macklin, Dr M Schuerch, Dr L Mao, Dr H Moore
Application Deadline: 17 February 2019
Lincoln Centre for Water and Planetary Health – School of Geography. Location. University of Lincoln, UK. Funding. £14,553 per annum stipend, plus all tuition fees covered.
  Sensitivity of aquatic insect eggs to elevated fine sediment and phosphate concentrations in rivers
  Dr M Johnson, Dr H West
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Insect populations are declining at an alarming rate, globally. Aquatic insects have a crucial functional role in the environment and are used to monitor stream impairment.
  Greenhouse gas emissions from human-impacted rivers – identifying ‘hotspots’ from source-to-sea, their drivers and stability.
  Dr A Pickard, Prof S Waldron, Dr U Skiba
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Overview. Inland freshwater systems are sources to the atmosphere of greenhouse gases (GHGs) and as such, their importance in global GHG budgets is increasingly recognised.
  Quantifying patch-scale eco-hydraulic interactions in rivers
  Dr T Marjoribanks
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Reference number. CENTA18-LU10. Start date. October 1st 2019. Closing date. January 21st 2019. Interview date. Week beginning February 11th 2019.
  Carbon flux from shallow landslides and rivers in fjords of British Columbia, Canada
  Dr S Dunning
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project is part of the ONE Planet DTP. Find out more here. https://research.ncl.ac.uk/one-planet/. The slopes above many fjords in British Columbia, Canada are heavily forested and susceptible to landslides of varied magnitude and frequency.
  Elucidating the transmission and persistence of antimicrobial resistance genes in the Thames watershed
  Dr J U Kreft
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The widespread use of antibiotics in human and veterinary medicine and as growth promoters in agriculture has not only selected for resistance genes but also for plasmids carrying them.
