  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.
  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.
  The London NERC Doctoral Training Partnership

Funding Type

PhD Type

The London NERC Doctoral Training Partnership brings together eight of the world's leading research centres in environmental science.
  Development of robust inhalation simulation procedures for measuring exposure to potentially harmful elements from soil particulates
  Dr J Wraggs, Dr K T Semple
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human exposure to soil-dust can be climate driven in that airborne particulates can be transported (and deposited great distances from the point of origin) through the atmosphere by weather and climatic patterns.

 . We are now accepting applications for PhD projects commencing Autumn 2020 covering the full breadth of Earth, Environmental and Life Sciences.
  Developing new UAV-based survey approaches for monitoring tree and soil health indices in SE Asian oil palm plantations
  Dr P Scholefield, Dr R Ewers, Mr J Moat, Dr N McNamara
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Poor tree health in Oil Palm plantations is a primary cause of low yield, typically dealt with by applying high volumes of fertilizers, pesticides, fungicides and herbicides.
  Soil microbes to mitigate climate change
  Dr J Whitaker, Prof N Ostle
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human populations are expected to increase by 50% to 9 billion by 2050 as climate change continues. The global challenge is to manage terrestrial ecosystems sustainably whilst mitigating climate change.
