  Herbivore and mycorrhizal mediation of carbon cycling in heather moorlands
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Dr S M Sait, Prof K. Field, Prof P Chapman
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The multiple drivers of environmental change, such as climate change and pollution, have led to widespread negative impacts on ecosystem functioning and services that are critical for human well-being.
  The role of lateral and tree transport in methane cycling in tropical peatlands
  Dr S Pangala
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tropical peatlands in Southeast Asia have sequestered carbon over thousands of years and are an important global carbon stock.
  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.
  Integrated Tropical Peatlands Research Program
  Dr M Lupascu, Prof D Taylor
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Two fully-funded PhD positions are available at the Department of Geography, National University of Singapore within the Integrated Tropical Peatlands Research Programme (INTPREP), a new initiative that brings together tropical peatland research expertise in Singapore and internationally.
  Extreme weather events exacerbate nitrous oxide emissions from soil (Extreme-N2O)
  Prof D Chadwick, Prof D Jones
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Accurate estimates of agricultural greenhouse gas emissions underpin national land use policy and subsequent targets, e.g. the recent UK target for net zero carbon emissions by 2050.
  Nitrogen controls on ecosystem functioning in neotropical dry forests
  Prof M Rufino, Dr J Whitaker
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Global agriculture is rapidly expanding in response to the growing demand for food, with ‘agricultural frontiers’, such as dry and fertile lands of the Gran Chaco in South America contributing to this need.
  Reconstructing microbial genomes from environmental samples and their impact ongreenhouse gases (HILDEBRANDQ20DTP1)
  Dr F Hildebrand
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are looking for a highly motivated student, interested in Bioinformatics (metagenomics), global warming, and metabolism-centric interpretation of ecosystems.
  Facilitating the circular economy in India’s food security: the social, economic and agronomic barriers and opportunities of wastewater
  Dr K V Heal, Dr A Gathorne-Hardy, Dr H Gorringe
Application Deadline: 9 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project summary. This interdisciplinary project combines environmental and social science to quantify the potential benefits of wastewater for Indian agriculture, as well as understanding the social barriers to wastewater use, and identifying opportunities to overcome these.
  Fate, transformation and effect of microplastics on microbial communities in the environment
  Dr C Whitby, Dr P Laissue, Dr A G Mayes, Prof R Thompson
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Scientific background. Microplastics enter ecosystems, where they affect microorganisms and their processes. Microbial-driven ammonia-oxidation is fundamental to the environmental cycling of nitrogen (N) and ammonia-oxidisers are highly sensitive to environmental perturbations.
  The Impact of Management on Grassland and Cropland Soil Organic Carbon
  Dr K Byrne
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Carbon (C) sequestration associated with pastures and improved grassland management could provide a mitigation option without impacting on agricultural production.
