  Data Analytics For Pore Water Pressure - New Tools For Sustainable Groundwater and Engineering Projects
  Prof W Timms
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This new PhD scholarship will develop advanced pore pressure analysis for groundwater systems with engineering applications in civil construction, mining operations and water supply systems.
  The Role of Place and Scale on Effectiveness of Temporary Storage Areas for Surface Runoff Attenuation
  Dr M Wilkinson, Dr J Geris, Prof P Hallett
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project addresses the need to understand where and at what scale land management could help to improve above and below ground storm water storage for managing floods.
  Transport of climate active trace gases between the atmosphere and biosphere
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Prof R Kerr
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Overview. Soils both produce and degrade/consume trace volatile gases, as such they are a critical component of global cycling for all greenhouse and climate affecting gases.
  Forever Blowing Bubbles: Quantifying Methane Discharge from Inland Water Systems (IAPETUS2 Project)
  Dr A Bass, Dr C Gauchotte-Lindsay
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Methane (CH4) is one of the most potent greenhouse gases and a significant regulator of global climate. Significant CH4 degassing occurs from inland aquatic systems, but substantial variability in spatial and temporal flux rates mean quantifying and characterising this pathway is challenging.
  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.
  Soil microbiome function controlling radionuclide bioavailability and soil-to-plant transfer
  Dr J Pittman, Dr C Robinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding the behaviour and environmental impacts of radionuclides such as radium (Ra) and uranium (U) is of critical importance for the management and risk modelling of sites with elevated concentrations of these radionuclides.
