  What soil factors lead to high reactive nitrogen oxide emissions in agricultural landscapes?
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr R Mushinski, Prof G Bending
Application Deadline: 29 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Highlights. Agriculture is a major source of nitrogen gases, which impact climate. You will assess how common agricultural practices influence soil emissions of an understudied group of nitrogen trace gases (NOz) along a gradient of soil carbon and nitrogen.
  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.
  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.
  What are the effects of exotic tree introduction in British forests on soil nitrogen cycle processes?
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr R Mushinski, Prof G Bending
Application Deadline: 29 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Highlights. Exotic tree species are projected to become commonplace in Britain’s forests throughout the next century. You will assess whether these exotic tree species influence a significant change in the soil microbiome as well as production of nitrogenous gases.
  Biological nitrogen fixation in forest soils under elevated CO2: response of a key soil nutrient to global change
  Dr S Ullah, Dr A R MacKenzie
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are looking for an enthusiastic, well-qualified, and self-motivated candidate to join our team as a PhD student in the School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences and the Birmingham Institute of Forest Research (BIFoR) at the University of Birmingham.
  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.
  Impacts of Climate Change on Ecosystems
  Prof G Phoenix
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change is one of the greatest threats to biodiversity and ecosystem functioning.
  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].

  Disappearing into thin air? Understanding degradation of plastic polymers in soils and freshwaters
  Dr B Surridge
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plastic pollution is one of the most pervasive threats facing global ecosystems. However, very little is known about the processes and governing factors that control the persistence of plastic polymers within environmental matrices such as soil or freshwater.
