  Research opportunities in the Department of Environment and Geography

Funding Type

PhD Type

We offer an outstanding, dynamic and multidisciplinary environment in which to carry out PhD research. MPhil/PhD in Human Geography and Environment.
  Scattering by Cirrus: from Microphysics to Climate Change
  Research Group: Atmospheric Science
  Prof A Webb, Dr P Connolly, Dr A Smedley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ice clouds, which can cover 20-35% of the Earth’s surface at any time, make a major contribution to radiative forcing in the atmosphere, both trapping IR (terrestrial) radiation and reflecting solar radiation.
  Studying the formation of ice fragments during freezing and riming using high resolution holographic imaging.
  Research Group: Atmospheric Science
  Dr J Crosier, Dr P Connolly
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ice and mixed phase clouds have important effects in the atmosphere, via interactions with incoming solar radiation and outgoing terrestrial radiation, and generation of precipitation which impacts on the surface.
  Understanding the formation and impacts of pockets of high ice crystal concentrations in mixed-phase layer clouds
  Research Group: Atmospheric Science
  Dr P Connolly, Dr D Topping
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project aims to understand how small-scale heterogeneity observed within clouds – so called “pockets of high ice crystal number density” – affect mixed-phase layer clouds (see Lloyd et al, 2015).
  Bridging the crop-soil-water phosphorus gap: Managing phosphorus for sustainable crop production and sustainable water
  Dr J Davies
Application Deadline: 12 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Phosphorus (P) sits at the heart of our DNA and the centre of our food system as a widely used agricultural fertilizer. Increased use of P fertilizers over the past 60 years has supported food production and growing populations, but their use also presents us with a number of inter-related sustainability challenges.
  Downscaling and cross-scale integration of land use data and models for building pathways towards sustainable food and land use systems
  Prof P Atkinson, Dr P Harrison, Dr P Henrys
Application Deadline: 18 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a fully-funded PhD studentship in which you will learn to develop cutting-edge data science approaches to address a key environmental science challenge related to sustainable land use.
  Meltwater Ice-Sheet interactions and the changing climate of Greenland
  Dr A Leeson
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Greenland Ice Sheet (GrIS) is shrinking as Earth’s climate warms. In fact, meltwater which runs off the ice sheet is expected to contribute ~10 cm to global sea level by 2100.
  Sun drenched or sun starved: Evaluating climate and ecosystem impacts of solar energy development
  Dr A Armstrong
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The rationale. Decarbonisation of energy supplies to mitigate climate change is triggering notable land take across the world. Land-use change is the greatest driver of decline in nature and therefore, such decisions risk trading global-scale climate change for local-scale ecosystem degradation.
  The role of lateral and tree transport in methane cycling in tropical peatlands
  Dr S Pangala
Application Deadline: 30 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tropical peatlands in Southeast Asia have sequestered carbon over thousands of years and are an important global carbon stock.
  Tracking Greenland’s Melting Ice from Space
  Dr M McMillan
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project offers the exciting opportunity to study Greenland ice sheet melting, and its associated impact upon global sea level rise, using recent advances in satellite and ground-based radar systems.
  Trajectories of soil structural change
  Prof J Quinton, Dr R Killick
Application Deadline: 2 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Linked to the NERC/NSF funded (2020-2023) ‘Detecting soil degradation and restoration through a novel coupled sensor and machine learning framework’(Soil Change) project.
  [EPSRC - iCASE] Microbe – radionuclide interactions in legacy nuclear waste systems
  Prof J Lloyd, Prof K Morris, Prof S Shaw, Dr L Natrajan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent work in the Geomicrobiology Group at the University of Manchester has shown that microorganisms can have a controlling impact on the speciation (and hence mobility) of key radionuclides in a broad range of natural and engineered systems.
  “Talking” trees and the ecology of underground fungal super-highways
  Prof D Johnson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Introduction. Recent exciting discoveries have shown that plants respond to herbivore-induced signals from neighbours via underground fungal networks1-3.
  Dynamics of sand around tidal sand banks and the stratigraphic record
  Research Group: Geoscience
  Dr N Mitchell, Dr R Jerrett
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sand banks in macrotidal estuaries are highly dynamic. As their heights and locations change rapidly and continuously, sand banks are hazards to marine shipping and errors on nautical charts can lead to ships running aground.
  How rapidly are oceanic volcanic islands destroyed by erosion?
  Research Group: Geoscience
  Dr N Mitchell, Dr G Allen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

During and after volcanism has ended, volcanic ocean islands are progressively reduced in elevation by subsidence, giant landslides, coastal erosion, fluvial erosion and hillslope landsliding, ultimately creating shallow banks and guyots.
