  NERC GW4+ DTP CASE studentship: Recycling and degradation scope of anhydride-epoxide co-polymers
  Dr B Ward, Dr A Paul
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The demand for plastics is vast, with 348 million tonnes being produced in 2017 alone,1 and the trend for plastic production is increasing exponentially year-on-year.
  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.
  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.
  Coupling shell growth and geochemistry in giant clams to explore biomineralization pathways
  Dr S Sosdian, Dr K Johnson, Dr D Muir, Dr E John
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Background. Bivalves belonging to the subfamily Tridacnidae (the so-called ‘giant clams’) play an important ecological role in tropical reef environments, providing food and shelter to a wide variety of organisms, contributing to the reef framework, and counteracting eutrophication.
  Microbial survival and activity in bentonite clay: relevance to the safety case for geological disposal of radioactive waste
  Dr H Sass, Dr S Gregory
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Background. The disposal of radioactive waste in geological disposal facilities (GDF) deep underground is being planned by several countries including the UK.
  Squeeze and mingle: understanding the role of deformation-driven melt transport in mid-ocean ridge magma chambers (Bay of Islands ophiolite, Newfoundland, Canada)
  Prof C MacLeod, Dr J Bedard, Dr C J Lissenberg, Dr I Parkinson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Background. We now realise our conceptual view of magma chambers as large melt bodies is outmoded. that they are instead predominantly melt-poor crystal mushes1.
  CO2 weathering of glacial till as nutrient source for Cryogenian biospheric oxygenation 720-635 million years ago (CO2-CryoBiophere)
  Dr E Chi Fru, Dr AC Smith, Dr E Bagshaw
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Background. It has been suggested that the release of glacial flour phosphate to the Neoproterozoic Ocean, 712-635 million years (Myr) ago, stimulated the Neoproterozoic Oxygenation Event (NOE) and emergence of photosynthetic eukaryotic algae to prominence.
  The influence of biogeochemistry and microbiology on Antarctic ice shelves
  Dr E Bagshaw, Dr A Jungblut, Prof I Hawes, Prof J L Wadham
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Background. Predicting the future behaviour of ice shelves is critical for understanding how Antarctica will respond to climate warming.
  Tracking radionuclide pollution
  Dr M Andersen, Dr D Richards
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Background. Pollution by anthropogenic radionuclides is ubiquitous in the environment. In particular, Wales and the southwest of England have experienced the legacy of the atomic age from the spread of toxic radionuclides from a range of now-decommissioned nuclear power plants (e.g.
