  Pore scale investigation of geophysical properties in unsaturated porous medium
  Dr Y Zhou
Application Deadline: 5 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pore scale modelling method has been used extensively in evaluation of single phase petrophysical properties (e.g.
  Fostering Sustainability Through Organic Waste Re-Use in Sub Saharan Africa
  Prof J Smith, Dr D Feliciano
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Efficient re-use of organic wastes is of critical importance to the productivity of small-holder farm households in many parts of Sub-Saharan Africa (Smith et al., 2015).
  Improving Evaluation Strategies for Species Distribution Modelling
  Dr C T Marshall, Dr L Lancaster
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate warming is have a variety of impacts on marine species (Poloczanska et al 2013) including broad scale changes in their spatial distribution such as poleward range shifts (Last et al 2011).
  Ecology of Dynamic Seasonal Salt Lakes
  Dr V Louca, Prof F Kuepper
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Seasonal salt lakes present extreme environments, often characterised by low levels of biodiversity and relatively simple food webs.
  Landscape Genomics of Damselflies in Scotland and Indonesia
  Dr L Lancaster, Dr C Gubry-Rangin, Dr M N Nangoy, Dr R D Dudaniec
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Odonates (damselflies and dragonflies) are charismatic insects which exhibit a diversity of colour forms and adaptations to ecological conditions.
  Does Stripping Topsoil of Carbon Cause Irreversible Physical Degradation?
  Prof P Hallett, Prof J Smith
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Severe soil degradation is prevalent across much of sub-Saharan Africa, driven primarily by the depletion of carbon from the soil.
  Influence of Plant Genetic Diversity on Biological Nitrification Inhibition
  Dr C Gubry-Rangin, Prof J Prosser
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nitrification is a crucial step of the nitrogen cycle as it oxidises ammonia into nitrate. This has important economic and environmental consequences, with important loss of nitrogen fertiliser, nitrate leaching into groundwater soil and nitrous oxide production.
  Supporting Healthy Honey Bees Against Varroa and Viruses: a Scientific Understanding for Practical Solutions
  Dr A Bowman, Dr J Sternberg
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is an increasing need for insect pollination for crop production worldwide. At the same time, there is a global crisis in honey bee health resulting in a shortage of managed bee colonies to satisfy the growing needs of food production.
  Re-evaluation of the Volcanic, Sedimentological and Structural nature of the Scott/Telford Fields within the Central North Sea:A route to extended field life?
  Dr N Schofield, Prof D Jolley, Prof A Hartley
Application Deadline: 1 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The North Sea has provided a highly important resource to the UK and its economy for over the last 50 years. With the basin in overall production decline, it is important to examine ways of prolonging and extended the life of this now mature basin.
  SEESALT: Novel ways to ’SEE’ coastal ’SALT’ marshes using low-cost drones and sensors
  Dr D Green, Dr D Mauquoy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Saltmarshes are found extensively along low wave energy coastlines resulting from fine sediment accumulation and vegetation establishment.
