  Molecular Modeling for Design of Biochar Materials
  Dr V Erastova
Application Deadline: 9 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project brings molecular modeling into biochar research, providing atomistic details to the key properties of biochar, and through this enabling the informed design and optimization of biochar for desirable functionality.
  Numerical modelling of roots and fibres as soil reinforcement
  Dr S Papanicolopulos, Dr K Hanley
Application Deadline: 9 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will use continuum and discrete numerical techniques to model how roots and geotextiles can increase the strength of soils at risk of geohazards such as landslides and debris flows.
  Fate and effects of pharmaceuticals in the below-ground food-web
  Research Group: Centre for Plant Sciences
  Prof P E Urwin, Dr Laura Carter
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Water resources in agricultural environments are impacted by a wide variety of contaminants including nutrients, sediments, and pesticides.
  Herbivore and mycorrhizal mediation of carbon cycling in heather moorlands
  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.
  Disentangling landuse and climatic roles in sediment delivery to upland British lakes
  Dr H Sangster, Prof R Chiverell
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The studentship seeks to exploit existing datasets compiled at Liverpool for a series of catchments from around the UK and develop new sites to disentangle the competing roles of landuse and climate on sediment delivery to lakes.
  SCENARIO - Soil microbial carbon metabolism for climate positive soils
  Dr E J Shaw, Dr M Redmile-Gordon, Dr R Griffiths
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Soils are essential to human well-being because they perform multiple functions that underpin the provision of ecosystem services that sustain life and regulate climate.
  Investigating the effects of fragmentation and environmental change on tropical montane butterflies and moths
  Dr K Peh, Mr M Soh, Dr C L Puan
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Deforestation is a major threat to biodiversity in South-East Asia where more than 14% of forest cover was lost in the last decade [1].
  Plant breeding for food safety
  Dr G Taylor, Prof B Keevil
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Food security often focuses on food production, but reduced food waste and enhanced quality and safety are important targets for food resilience.
  Planting for silence: the role of domestic gardens in mitigating urban noise pollution
  Dr P.E. Osborne, Dr P White, Prof A Griffiths, Dr T Blanusa
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. According to the WHO, noise pollution is second only to ultra-fine particulate matter in its impact on human health.
  SCENARIO - Understanding risks and optimising anaerobic digestion to minimise pathogen and antimicrobial resistance genes entering the environment.
  Dr D Saroj
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Anaerobic digestion (AD) utilises organic materials to produce energy via biogas while also producing nutrient-rich digestate ideal for application to land as a fertiliser.
  Biodiversity of Novel Croplands
  Dr C West, Prof J Hill, Prof J Grugel
Application Deadline: 30 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Enrol for a PhD project to investigate the impacts of humanity on biodiversity change. Your PhD will involve collecting and analysing data for biodiversity associated with novel tropical crops, including soy and oil palm.
