  ONE Planet DTP - Biofouling invertebrates and their larvae as vectors of antimicrobial resistance and marine pathogens. (OP20232)
  Dr N Aldred
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Of the many human impacts on the global ecosystem, the increasing antimicrobial resistance (AMR) of bacterial pathogens is a significant challenge.
  ONE Planet DTP - Developing novel geophysical tools to investigate urban plant-water processes.
  Dr R Stirling
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD aims to improve our understanding of how street vegetation influence soil-water capacity in the built environment through the use of geophysical tomography.
  ONE Planet DTP - Developing probabilistic precipitation datasets for high mountain regions in a changing climate (OP20298)
  Dr E Lewis
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Precipitation data is fundamental to understanding hydrological processes, yet precipitation patterns and variability in mountain regions are poorly understood.
  ONE Planet DTP - Evaluating time-varying hazard and risk from proglacial lakes in Lunana, Bhutan. (OP20288)
  Dr R Carr
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bhutan is highly vulnerable to Glacier Lake Outburst Floods (GLOFs), as hydroelectric power (HEP) supplies ~100% of its power and accounts ~60% of its GDP.
  ONE Planet DTP - Real-time data to manage urban environmental risks (OP20216)
  Dr R Dawson
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

High concentrations of people in urban areas concentrate impacts from extreme weather, climate change and environmental risks. These include poor air quality, heatwaves amplified by the urban heat island and surface water flooding.
  ONE Planet DTP - Will fish cope with climate change? A conjunctive use approach for regulating stream temperature to maximise natural habitat survival rate during heatwaves. (OP202020)
  Dr C Walsh
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Heatwaves are becoming more frequent in areas where they are least expected. Recently, a major heatwave in South East England resulted in the death of nearly 6000 fish.
  OnePlanet DTP - Creating high-resolution records of Holocene climate change from the heart of Siberia. (OP202050)
  Mr M Van Hardenbroek
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Some of the largest observed changes in global surface temperatures over the last century have been witnessed in Siberia (IPCC, 2013).
  Development of new nano-absorptive materials for air filtration and self-cleaning coatings in closed environment (Advert Reference: RDF20/EE/MCE/QIAN)
  Dr Zi Qian
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The number of metro commuters has continuously increased over recent years in metropolitan cities such as London. The air quality and thermal comfort in the subway indoor environment is of particular public concern.
  Flexible substrate rectenna devices for energy recovery (Ref : RENU20/EE/MPEE/DODD)
  Dr L Dodd, Prof D Wood, Dr H Torun
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Renewable Energy Northeast Universities (ReNU)is a collaborative doctoral training programme run by the Universities of Northumbria, Newcastle and Durham.
  High sensitivity micro/nano optical fibre biosensor for bacterial detection (Advert reference: RDF20/EE/MPEE/WU)
  Dr Q Wu
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Earlier diagnostic/detection for diseases (cancer, chronic or foodborne) enables doctors making rapid clinical decision, which considerably enhance the success of treatment and medical intervention and ultimately benefits to human health.
