  The Impact of Changes in Management, Climate and Sea Level on Blue Carbon and Greenhouse Gas Emissions in Coastal Wetlands
  Prof J Smith, Dr A Brand, Prof D Paterson, Prof J Baxter
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Coastal wetlands provide numerous critical ecosystem services, including storm surge protection, fisheries production, improvement of water quality, and carbon sequestration, and are potentially one of the most effective ecosystems on the planet for slowing global warming.
  ENDS: Explainability of Non-Deterministic Solvers - TWO collaborative studentships with Robert Gordon University, University of Stirling, British Telecom, ARR Craib & the Data Lab
  Prof J McCall, Dr A Brownless
Application Deadline: 13 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are sought for Research Studentships (PhD) in Computational Intelligence at Robert Gordon University (RGU) and at University of Stirling (UoS).
  Managing the Impact of Recovering Mobile Predators on Endangered Birds Through Prey Switching: A Field Experiment in a Habitat Restoration Landscape in the Cairngorms
  Prof X Lambin, Dr A Payo-Payo, Dr C Sutherland, Mr K Kortland
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The restoration of ecosystems is being implemented in large areas in Scotland with the goal of reinstating lost biodiversity and ecosystem functions.
  The Significance of Macroalgal Detritus for Marine Food Webs and Blue-Carbon Sequestration
  Prof U Witte, Prof W Austin, Dr P Smith
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Marine plants draw down CO2, and in a world of rising atmospheric CO2 levels carbon sinks in vegetated coastal ecosystems can sequester CO2 on geological time scales and are now referred to as ‘Blue Carbon’.
  Linking Microbial Physiology with Carbon Transformations in Peatlands Under Land Use Change
  Dr A Malik, Dr R Andersen, Dr R Artz, Prof J Smith
Application Deadline: 9 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Significant amount of carbon is stored in soils, particularly in peatlands. Increasing food and energy needs have led to intensive land use practices that deplete soil organic carbon (SOC) stores.
