  Developing Ecologically acceptable Sediment targets for chalk rivers
  Prof D A Sear, Dr PJ Shaw, Prof A Collins, Mr T Sykes
Application Deadline: 1 June 2019
Fine sediment accumulation in the gravel beds of chalk streams is a key reason for failure under the Water Framework and Habitats Directives, impacting salmonid spawning success, and macro-invertebrate and macrophyte communities (richness and abundance).
  Flow characteristics and sediment transport in vegetated compound channels
  Research Group: Centre For Sustainable Environments
  Prof Y Guo
Applications accepted all year round
The project is to examine the effect of vegetations on the open channel/river flow and sediment transport. It is well known that plants can reduce flow velocity, and thus sediment transport by creating additional flow resistance, leading to the increase of the river flooding.
  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.
  Unlocking past and present climatic and anthropogenic drivers of environmental change influencing Miri-Sibuti Coral Reefs National Park (Borneo, Malaysia)
  Prof J Zinke
Application Deadline: 13 June 2019
Study a set of unique coral cores covering up to 200 years of ocean climate history from Miri-Sibuti Coral Reefs National Park (MSCRNP).
  Environmental assessment of offshore wind energy devices
  Research Group: Centre For Sustainable Environments
  Prof Y Guo
Applications accepted all year round
The installation of Offshore Wind Energy Device (OWED) will inevitably alter the flow patterns around the devices. This may enhance the sediment transport and scour around the foundation, thus leading to the instability of offshore wind energy device foundation, and further resultant failure of the whole system.
  Tracking the ancient Indian monsoon: investigating the geochemistry of deep-sea sediments from the Bay of Bengal and Andaman Sea
  Dr K Littler, Dr B.D.A. Naafs, Prof R Pancost, Dr I Bailey
Application Deadline: 29 April 2019
This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  Lead isotope ratio measurements in microcosms and avian samples as indicators for the source of lead poisoning in wildfowl
  Dr J Barker, Dr S Barton
Applications accepted all year round
Lead (Pb) poisoning is commonly linked amongst anthropogenically-caused deaths in waterfowl and this is often associated with hunting and fishing activities.
  DTC BIO 16 - Understanding the effect of benthic bioturbation on chemical dynamics in lakes using an integrated biology, physics and modelling approach
  Prof K W Tang
Applications accepted all year round
Successful invasion by Chaoborus larvae (phantom midge) represents an ecological tipping point in eutrophic lakes where bioturbation of Chaoborus sustains internal nutrient loading, water deoxygenation and release of sediment methane.
  Bubble growth and gaseous release dynamics within viscoelastic soft sediments
  Dr T Hunter
Application Deadline: 3 May 2019
The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Fluid Dynamics is now recruiting to this fantastic PhD opportunity in partnership with Sellafield Ltd.
  Quaternary and methylated amine cycle in coastal oceans: new genes, novel microbes and unexpected pathways
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr Y Chen, Dr K Purdy
Application Deadline: 1 May 2019
Project Highlights. New genes and novel microbes. Unexpected pathways. World-leading supervisory team on climate-change microbiology.
