  NERC GW4 DTP Projects 2020: (Changing Planet) Estimating greenhouse gas emissions using the next generation of satellite observations
  Dr A Ganesan
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Through the work in Bristol’s School of Geographical Sciences, Atmospheric Chemistry Research Group (ACRG) and the Met Office, the UK is world-leading in the estimation of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions using atmospheric data.
  NERC GW4+ DTP Projects 2020: (Dynamic Earth, Living World, Changing Planet) Microbial life and carbon cycling in glaciers environments
  Dr P Sanchez-Baracaldo, Prof J L Wadham
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Probing novel pathways of carbon cycling in glaciers using metageomics. Carbon is essential for life and forms the building blocks of all organic compounds.
  NERC GW4+ DTP Projects 2020: (Living World, Changing Planet) Advancing the study of photosynthetic life in extreme cryo-environments
  Dr C Williamson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Permanently cold ecosystems make up more than 70% of the Earth’s biosphere, though paradoxically, the microorganisms that thrive in these extreme habitats are the most poorly understood.
  NERC GW4+ DTP Projects 2020: (Changing Planet) Oceans losing breath: is anthropogenic climate change to blame for recent oceandeoxygenation?
  Dr O Andrews
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Oxygen is essential to biological and chemical processes in the ocean. Over the last 50 years low-oxygen zones which are hostile to marine life have expanded by an area about the size of the European Union [1].
  PhD in designing high-performance electric cars of the future.
  Prof P H Mellor
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Be a driving part of the Electric Revolution of transport by designing and testing affordable high-performance electric motors and be part of a global effort to reduce CO2 emissions.
  Atmospheric measurements and modelling to support the Montreal Protocol and international climate agreements (NERC GW4+ DTP)

  14 fully funded studentships - an integrated approach to freshwater bioscience training

Funding Type

PhD Type

14 fully funded studentships - an integrated approach to freshwater bioscience training. Sustaining the World's freshwater ecosystems, while meeting the water demands of a growing population, will require a new brand of intellectually mobile and agile problem solvers.
  NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership

Funding Type

PhD Type

 . We are now accepting applications for PhD projects commencing Autumn 2020 covering the full breadth of Earth, Environmental and Life Sciences.
  Indicators of regime shifts in freshwater ecosystems
  Dr C Clements
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Regime shifts, characterised by sudden, often irreversible, changes in the composition of biological communities, can have catastrophic impacts on the ecosystem services which society relies on.
  Assessing the impact of peatland restoration on freshwater ecosystems
  Dr C Bryce, Prof P Johnes, Prof R Pancost
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Decades of degradation have turned the UK’s peatlands from sinks to sources of organic carbon, with adverse consequences for adjacent freshwater ecosystems.
