  Dynamics of sand around tidal sand banks and the stratigraphic record
  Research Group: Geoscience
  Dr N Mitchell, Dr R Jerrett

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.
  Strategies for Increasing Crop Stress Tolerance
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Dr G Johnson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Humanity is facing a growing food crisis – the “perfect storm” of growing world populations and changing climates mean we urgently need to increase crop productivity, including by increasing environmental stress tolerance.
