  Cascading effects of micro- and nano-plastics on lipid quality and transfer through freshwater planktonic ecosystems
  Dr IA Guschina, Prof S Ormerod
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite growing global concern about the occurrence of small plastic particles (nano- and micro-plastics) in the world’s seas, rivers and lakes, there has been limited research into understanding any adverse effects on living organisms.
  Quantum Optics of Giant Rydberg Excitons in Cuprous Oxide
  Research Group: Condensed Matter and Photonics
  Prof W W Langbein, Dr S Lynch
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cuprous oxide (Cu2O) is one the oldest, and yet least well-known, semiconductor material. It has a slightly larger band gap than silicon, which means that the single crystal form of the material is slightly transparent in the visible part of the spectrum.
  KESS2 MRes Studentship: Deception Approaches for CNI
  Dr E Llewellyn
Application Deadline: 20 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is a funded MbyRes, including a generous stipend and tuition fees, with well-resourced circumstances for a successful scholarship.
  The influence of biogeochemical iron(III) reduction on contaminant dynamics in riparian systems
  Dr D Sapsford, Prof A Weightman
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent research has revealed the critical role that microbial reduction of iron oxides plays in nitrogen loss from riparian wetlands, soils and sediments.
  Novel window into old crust: How did Earth’s continents form?
  Dr M A Millet, Dr O Nebel, Dr C J Lissenberg, Dr I Parkinson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project keywords. Continent formation, Magmatic processes, Petrology, isotope, geochemistry, fieldwork. Project Background. The formation of Earth’s continents during the Archean eon is one of the major transformation that our planet has experienced throughout its history.
  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.
