  QUADRAT DTP: Quantifying carbon accumulation and loss in Russian Arctic peatlands
  Dr D Mauquoy, Dr M Blaauw
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Peatlands in Russia (and North America) are a major terrestrial carbon store and a natural sink for atmospheric CO2 during the Holocene (Charman et al., 2013, holding around 612 gigatonnes of carbon, which represents a larger stock than the worlds live vegetation.
  Assessing the capacity of seagrass meadows in the Solent (UK) for blue carbon sequestration
  Dr F Ragazzola, Dr S Reynolds,, Dr M Cerasuolo
Application Deadline: 23 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a fully-funded three year PhD to commence in October 2020. The PhD will be based in the Faculty of Science and Health, and will be supervised by Dr Federica Ragazzola, Dr Sarah Reynolds and Dr Marianna Cerasuolo.
  QUADRAT DTP: Is macroalgal carbon sequestration the ’elephant in the Blue Carbon room’ ?
  Prof U Witte, Dr K O'Driscoll
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Marine plants draw down CO2, and in a world of rising atmospheric CO2 levels carbon sinks in vegetated coastal ecosystems can sequester CO2 on geological time scales and are now referred to as ’Blue Carbon’.
  QUADRAT DTP: Dynamics of carbon capture in Scottish and Irish peatlands over the past centuries
  Dr M Blaauw, Dr D Mauquoy
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Peatlands store and potentially release large amounts of carbon, and thus it is essential to predict their role in future warming (e.g., Gallego-Sala et al., 2018; Ferretto et al.
  The impact of somatic DNA variation on tree adaptation and evolution
  Dr M Catoni
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In virtually all living organisms, mutations of genomic DNA allow the generation of new traits that, if positively selected, drive adaptation to changing environments and contribute to evolution.
  From branch to forest to globe: How do trees choices regarding growth affect forest responses to increased carbon dioxide levels?
  Dr T Pugh, Dr J Larsen, Dr B Smith, Prof B Medlyn
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Forests of the future will be subjected to levels of carbon dioxide for which there is no analogue in the current world.
  Priming of defence in an elevated CO2 world
  Dr E Luna-Diez, Dr S Hayward
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Anthropogenic activity has raised the atmospheric and this is predicted to rise further over the course of the 21st century. Whilst elevated CO2 (eCO2) may increase plant productivity, several publications have described changes in the defensive capacity of plants after exposure of eCO2.
  The impact of somatic DNA variation on tree adaptation and evolution.
  Dr M Catoni, Dr E Luna-Diez
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In virtually all living organisms, mutations of genomic DNA allow the generation of new traits that, if positively selected, drive adaptation to changing environments and contribute to evolution.
  Love and war in the rhizosphere and engineering N2-fixation into cereals
  Prof P Poole
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Colonisation by bacteria of the zone surrounding plant roots (rhizosphere) is crucial to plant productivity. In spite of its importance rhizosphere colonization is poorly understood but recent advances in genome sequencing and analysis makes it possible to address this complex topic in exciting new ways.
  Optimizing soil nitrogen in babyleaf salad crops for sustainable crop production
  Dr E J Shaw
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The use of synthetic nitrogen fertilizers has been responsible for increased food production more than any other input to farming.
