Showing 1 to 10 of 41
  Experimental Evolution of Thaumarchaeota
  Dr C Gubry-Rangin, Prof J Prosser
Application Deadline: 16 April 2019
The fundamental aim of this project is to determine the process of adaptive diversification and associated trade-offs in fitness, by studying microbial evolution experimentally.
  Organic wastes and food, energy and water provision in Sub-Saharan Africa
  Prof J Smith, Prof P Hallett
Applications accepted all year round
Globally, over 2.8 billion people still rely on unsustainable solid biomass for cooking and heating, of which ~2.2 billion (78%) live in rural areas.
  Unlocking the Toolbox of Soil Bacterial Biomarkers
  Dr D Read, Dr J Bendle
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
A wide range of environmental information from both terrestrial and marine realms is required from palaeoclimate archives to better understand the climate system and to provide a palaeoclimatic context for predictions of future rates of climate change.
  Climate change and global wildfire activity: developing a framework for event attribution and future risk assessment
  Dr J Eden
Application Deadline: 22 March 2019
Coventry University (CU) is inviting applications from suitably-qualified graduates for a fully-funded PhD studentship. Wildfires constitute a major natural hazard and pose huge risk to many regions of the world.
  Managing ash dieback disease using soil amendments including biochar
  Dr F Rayns, Dr K Dehnen-Schmutz
Application Deadline: 18 March 2019
Coventry University (CU) is inviting applications from suitably qualified graduates for a fully-funded PhD studentship. Ash dieback is an emerging disease that causes leaf loss and crown dieback in affected plants, often leading to tree death.
  Demonstration of anaerobic membrane bioreactors for water and energy reuse in wastewater treatment applications PhD
  Dr A Soares, Prof B Jefferson
Application Deadline: 30 April 2019
This PhD position offers an exciting opportunity to resolve key questions around the demonstration of anaerobic municipal wastewater treatment in the temperate climates sponsored by EU H2020 in close collaboration with Severn Trent Water.
  Fully-funded PhD positions in several natural sciences & engineering disciplines
Join an internationally renowned scientific community with the Hector FellowPhD program. PhD students benefit not only from the experience of the program, but also from the network of Hector Fellows.
  Molecular Genetics of Durable Disease Resistance in Wheat
  Prof S Krattinger
Applications accepted all year round
The identification of agriculturally important genes in wheat had long been limited by its large genome, which is five times larger than the human genome.
  Saving Water with Smart Irrigation and Monitoring System based on Machine Learning
  Dr J Han
Application Deadline: 25 March 2019
The overall aim of this project is to explore the capacity of deep machine learning techniques to analyse and extract meaningful features from meteorological data, soil moisture sensing data, and plant based sensory data (thermal imaging).
  Understanding drought tolerance of potato using multispectral imaging technology
  Dr L Bell
Application Deadline: 25 March 2019
Potato crop yield is severely affected by drought and heat stress. Extremes in UK summer temperatures and periods of drought are likely to increase due to climate change, and new methods are required to maintain yields.
