  Developing Ecologically acceptable Sediment targets for chalk rivers
  Prof D A Sear, Dr PJ Shaw, Prof A Collins, Mr T Sykes
Application Deadline: 1 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fine sediment accumulation in the gravel beds of chalk streams is a key reason for failure under the Water Framework and Habitats Directives, impacting salmonid spawning success, and macro-invertebrate and macrophyte communities (richness and abundance).
  River catchment erosion and flood histories using geochemical fingerprinting of sediment archives
  Prof I.C. Fuller, Dr ST McColl
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a fully funded PhD available in the Geosciences Group at Massey University, Palmerston North, New Zealand, on the topic of.
  Numerical modelling of wind-wave-current-sediment interaction
  Dr Z Xie, Dr S Pan
Application Deadline: 1 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The main aim of the proposed project is to quantify the sediment transport and morphodynamics subjected to various ambient environments.
  Flow characteristics and sediment transport in vegetated compound channels
  Research Group: Centre For Sustainable Environments
  Prof Y Guo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project is to examine the effect of vegetations on the open channel/river flow and sediment transport. It is well known that plants can reduce flow velocity, and thus sediment transport by creating additional flow resistance, leading to the increase of the river flooding.
  Impact of Sediment Transport and Vegetation to the Reservoir Hydrodynamics within Fluvial Environment
  Research Group: Centre For Sustainable Environments
  Prof F Hu, Dr J Pu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Reservoirs and dams are popular control mechanisms for different water resources around the world. However, lately, there have been increasing incidences of reservoir failure linked to sediment transport and vegetation within its environment, that have caused massive financial and social impacts.
  Unlocking past and present climatic and anthropogenic drivers of environmental change influencing Miri-Sibuti Coral Reefs National Park (Borneo, Malaysia)
  Prof J Zinke
Application Deadline: 13 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Study a set of unique coral cores covering up to 200 years of ocean climate history from Miri-Sibuti Coral Reefs National Park (MSCRNP).
  Transport of radioactive waste along the Sellafield shoreline: climate change impact and mitigation strategies through nature based solutions
  Dr N Leonardi, Prof A Plater
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This proposal aims to build on previous collaboration across the Department of Geography and Planning and NNL on the ARCoES project.
  Environmental assessment of offshore wind energy devices
  Research Group: Centre For Sustainable Environments
  Prof Y Guo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The installation of Offshore Wind Energy Device (OWED) will inevitably alter the flow patterns around the devices. This may enhance the sediment transport and scour around the foundation, thus leading to the instability of offshore wind energy device foundation, and further resultant failure of the whole system.
  Nutrient cycling and oxygenation of shallow seas during the Triassic-Jurassic mass extinction and the early Jurassic
  Dr R Newton, Prof S Poulton, Dr C Little, Prof P Wignall
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will examine changes in nutrient and oxygen availability across an extended period of Earth history from just before the Triassic-Jurassic (T-J) boundary extinction, through its recovery interval and into the environmental changes that characterised the early Jurassic.
  Lead isotope ratio measurements in microcosms and avian samples as indicators for the source of lead poisoning in wildfowl
  Dr J Barker, Dr S Barton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead (Pb) poisoning is commonly linked amongst anthropogenically-caused deaths in waterfowl and this is often associated with hunting and fishing activities.
  PhD studentship in Saving the Mary Rose: Determining the structural and material properties of a Tudor shipwreck
  Dr F Giuliani
Application Deadline: 31 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a three and half year PhD studentship which has become available for the project ‘Saving the Mary Rose.
  Tectonic evolution of the Borborema Province in NE Brazil, PhD project based at Monash University, Australia
  Prof R Weinberg
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project focuses on structural geology and tectonic evolution of the Borborema Province in NE Brazil using structural geology, sediment provenance through zircon studies and metamorphic petrology in collaboration with the Brazilian Geological Survey.
  Planetary protection and the search for life in the outer solar system (ref: SF18/APP/Pearce)
  Prof D Pearce
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The search for life in the outer solar system is centred on the search for water and the conditions which are known to support the ‘envelope of life’ on Earth.
  Low Frequency Ocean Acoustic Phenomena (LOWFOAP)
  Dr P Blondel
Application Deadline: 9 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Centre for Space, Atmosphere and Oceanic Science (CSAOS) at the University of Bath is inviting applications for a fully-funded EPSRC iCASE studentship with the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (DSTL).
  Holocene rapid climate change and vegetation response in Cappadocia, Turkey
  Dr W J Eastwood, Dr J P Sadler
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Multi-proxy approaches to integrated regional studies of environmental variability during the late Glacial and Holocene can provide valuable insights into the ways that significant shifts in climate have affected natural ecosystems, landscapes and human activities over decadal, centennial and millennial timescales.
  Validating Cenozoic records of deep-sea ostracod diversity
  Dr I Boomer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ostracods are microscopic, bivalved crustaceans that have a long fossil record in marine and non-marine habitats. The existence of deep-sea ostracod assemblages in today’s oceans have been known since the 19th century Challenger expedition.
  Water Engineering: Complex Natural River Flow Modelling and Flood Analysis
  Dr P Pimenidou, Dr J Pu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The study on flooding, and identifying suitable ways to mitigate floods, have become a top priority for Government and the Environmental Agency, due to increasing flood frequency and intensity around the UK.
  Can Glacial Flour Stimulate N Cycling in Croplands? - MScR in Global Environmental Challenges
  Dr J L Wadham, Dr F Sgouridis
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

About the Project. Glacial flour produced from the erosive force of glaciers contains a multitude of minerals that if applied to cropland soils it could chemically weather in situ, potentially increasing soil fertility and reducing the need for chemical fertilisers.
  Wave-current interaction modelling for marine and coastal engineering
  Dr A Angeloudis, Dr V Venugopal
Application Deadline: 30 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Coastal areas are heavily populated in countries around the world and are a source of recreational and industrial economic activities.
