  Understanding the changing sources of volatile organic compounds in the UK over the last two decades and implications for the future
  Dr J F Hamilton, Dr J Hopkins
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are emitted into the atmosphere from a wide variety of sources and can be anthropogenic (man-made) or biogenic (naturally produced) in origin.
  Understanding the impact of trace level sulfur dioxide on air pollution and climate
  Dr P Edwards, Dr J D Lee
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will use a newly developed laser induced fluorescence instrument to investigate the chemistry of sulphur dioxide (SO2) and its role in atmospheric particle formation.
  Designing protected areas networks that incorporate animal movement and habitat connectivity (FRANCOUENV20ARIES)
  Dr A Franco, Prof C Peres, Dr T Luisetti
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BACKGROUND. The establishment of robust networks of protected areas is key to address biodiversity loss. Species that move between breeding and non-breeding sites are among those that are most challenging to protect.
  Understanding the ecological role of organic matter (OM) in urban freshwaters
  Dr D Read, Prof RP Evershed, Prof P Johnes, Mr J Bryden
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Organic matter (OM) is an essential component of freshwater ecosystems, fuelling the microbial food-web and primary production, influencing rates of greenhouse gas exchange with the atmosphere and changing water quality and ecosystem health through light attenuation.
  Chemosensors for atmospheric peroxyl radical investigations (CAPRI)
  Dr T J Dillon, Dr A R Rickard, Dr V Chechik
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Atmospheric chemistry lies at the heart of a wide range of environmental issues of substantial societal and economic impacts.
  Environmental Exposure to Cannabinoids, Metabolites and Transformation
  Dr J B Sallach, Dr A Singer
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The pharmaceutical and recreational use of cannabis and cannabis-derived compounds, cannabinoids, are increasing as prohibitionary legislation has evolved in many countries throughout the world.
  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.
  GW4 FRESH CDT PhD Studentship: Chlorine reduction wetlands
  Dr J Wenk
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

  Biogeochemical cycling of trace metals in a changing Arctic Ocean
  Prof R James, Dr H Goring-Harford, Dr M Lohan
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

  Fingerprinting bioactive trace elements in a changing Arctic Ocean
  Dr M Lohan, Dr A Annett
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. The Arctic Ocean is undergoing dramatic environmental change and has warmed twice as fast as the rest of the planet.

  Dr P Brown, Prof A Naveira-Garabato, Dr N Briggs
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. The Southern Ocean (SO) is thought to have absorbed ~40% of all global human-derived (anthropogenic) carbon dioxide and >75% of anthropogenic heat, thus being disproportionately influential in mitigating increasing atmospheric CO2 levels and related climate effects.
  Provision or Poison? Biogeochemistry of sediments in a warming ocean
  Dr A Annett, Dr J Godbold
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type
