  26 Fully Funded PhD Studentships in Environmental Research NERC

Funding Type

PhD Type

The NERC Panorama DTP has around 24 fully funded studentships for October 2019 starters to study the science of the Earth's atmosphere and climate, Earth processes and the living world.
  Microplastic-sediment interactions (MiPSi)
  Research Group: Earth Surface Science
  Dr K Spencer, Prof G Wharton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The accelerating global release of microplastics (mP) into the aquatic environment seems inevitable, with long-term consequences for water quality and biodiversity.
  Quantification of the impact of changing vegetation on hillslope sediment transport
  Research Group: Earth Surface Science
  Dr S Grieve, Dr E Lines
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hillslope sediment transport exists on a continuum from the gradual downslope motion of particles, termed soil creep, to catastrophic shallow landslides and debris flows.
  Rewilding and Natural Flood Management
  Research Group: Earth Surface Science
  Dr G Harvey, Dr A Henshaw, Dr S Clarke
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over the last decade, the UK has experienced some of the most significant and extreme flood events of the last 100 years, and predicted changes in precipitation are expected to increase the frequency and costs of flooding.
  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.
  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.
  Exploring the contribution of horizontal gene transfer to greenhouse gas emissions from arable agriculture
  Dr J Hall, Prof T J Daniell
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nitrous oxide (N2O) is a potent and long-lived greenhouse gas, and arable agriculture is a major source of N2O due to incomplete denitrification of N-based fertilizers by microbes.
