  Mathematical modelling of poro-mechanics of soil
  Research Group: Bioengineering
  Prof T. Roose
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Tiina Roose. Co-supervisor William Powrie. Project description. Soil is one of the most complex and important self-assembling organo-mineral composites in the world.
  Bridging the gap between environment and health – exposure assessment of potentially harmful agents in soil
  Dr P Hooda
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our current understanding of soil exposure in the UK population is extremely limited. The current risk assessment paradigm makes large assumptions based on very uncertain data to estimate direct exposures via soil ingestion or dust inhalation.
  Microbial biogeochemistry in agricultural landscapes: An investigation of reactive nitrogen oxide fluxes from soil
  Dr R Mushinski, Prof G Bending
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A range of pollutant gases, and especially nitrogen (N) compounds (N2O, NO, NO2, etc.) are emitted to the atmosphere from agricultural activities.1 These gases are extremely important for a myriad of reason including their contribution to climate change, urban air pollution, and N-deposition.
  Modelling soil dewatering and recharge for cost-effective and climate resilient infrastructure
  Research Group: Bioengineering
  Prof T. Roose
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Tiina Roose. Co-supervisor William Powrie. Project description. Soil is one of the most complex and important self-assembling organo-mineral composites in the world.
  Rebuilding soil quality and crop performance in arable farming by herbal leys
  Prof J Leake
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Intensively cultivated arable soils that have been used to grow annual crops for decades often suffer from low organic matter content and weak structure.
  Experiments of rain droplet penetration of porous media using laser diagnostics
  Research Group: Bioengineering
  Prof T. Roose
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Tiina Roose. Co-supervisor Bharath Ganapatrhrisubramani. Project description. Soil is one of the most complex self assembling organo-mineral composites in the world.
  Monitoring chemical dynamics in soil and water with advanced microfluidic sensors
  Research Group: Mechatronics Engineering
  Dr X. Niu
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Dr. Xize Niu. Co-supervisor Dr. Adrian Nightingale and Prof. Tiina Roose. Project description. Excess nitrogen and phosphorous leaching from agricultural and horticultural lands into waterways is a long-standing challenge for agricultural sustainability and environmental protection.
  The Impact of Management on Grassland and Cropland Soil Organic Carbon
  Dr K Byrne
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Carbon (C) sequestration associated with pastures and improved grassland management could provide a mitigation option without impacting on agricultural production.
  Investigation of Tectonic Effects on Pipeline Stabilty
  Dr S Ullah
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pipelines make an important group of structures called lifelines, as they support conducting water, oil and gas essential for life.
  The role of pipeline-soil interaction in the stability of pipelines
  Prof A Ivanovic, Dr A Akisanya
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The axial resistance to movement of a marine pipeline is an important factor in the assessment of the stability of subsea and onshore pipelines.
  Grazing and disturbance as management tools in coastal wetlands: consequences for soil organic matter, biodiversity and functional resilience
  Dr A Keith
Application Deadline: 9 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Application details. Reference number. CENTA20-LU15. Start date. 1 October 2020. Closing date. 9 June 2020. Interview date. Week beginning 22 June 2020.
  Microbial establishment on growing rhizoplanes
  Dr M Gifford
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microbial activity in soil and associations with plants are essential to nutrient availability, soil biodiversity and fertility. Plants are active in the colonization process and secrete compounds that stimulate or repress specific soil microbes [1].
  Investigating the Interactions between Drilling Mud and Surrounding Soil in Horizontal Directional Drilling
  Dr A Royal, Prof D N Chapman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Horizontal directional drilling is a technique that offers the ability to install pipes and cables without the need for open cut excavation.
  Research Studentship in Development of a Practical Soil Constitutive Model Suitable for the Design of Offshore Wind Turbine Foundations in Sand, Considering Cyclic Loading – Numerical Analysis

Application Deadline: 12 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Studentship in Development of a Practical Soil Constitutive Model Suitable for the Design of Offshore Wind Turbine Foundations in Sand, Considering Cyclic Loading – Numerical Analysis.
  Development of novel sensors for measuring porewater pressures in soils (Advert Reference: SF19/EE/MCE/MENDES)
  Dr J Mendes, Dr M Lim
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

High capacity tensiometers (HCT) are sensors used in geotechnical engineering to monitor positive and negative porewater pressures (soil suction) up to 2MPa in soil infrastructures and for the study of unsaturated soils in the laboratory.
