  ONE Planet DTP - Developing a methodology to measure and optimise the impacts of climate change on urban building environment (Ref: OP20283)
  Dr Z Qian
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Following the Government heating and energy target guidelines to improved building performance it is important to consider building design and human activities when examining the impact of changing microclimate due to climate change.
  ONE Planet DTP - Quantifying the effects of climate change on Infrastructure Networks (OP20217)
  Dr S Wilkinson
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will use the latest generation of convection permitting climate models to answer the question “are we now at the stage where climate models can be used to ask multifaceted questions about how our societies may be directly affected by a changed climate?”.
  ONE Planet DTP - The potential of endophyte application to manage the crop microbiome for climate resilient and Anthropocene-alligned farming (OP20222)
  Prof N Boonham
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Endophytes within plant tissues can provide mutiple benefits to their hosts, including buffering against climate shocks (e.g. drought, heat stress) or pest and pathogen outbreaks.
  SCENARIO - Soil microbial carbon metabolism for climate positive soils
  Dr E J Shaw, Dr M Redmile-Gordon, Dr R Griffiths
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Soils are essential to human well-being because they perform multiple functions that underpin the provision of ecosystem services that sustain life and regulate climate.
  ONE Planet DTP - Ocean wave field and climate monitoring with a GNSS Wave Glider (OP20292)
  Dr N Penna
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ocean wave field monitoring is needed for climatology, as it controls the input of wind stress into the oceanic mixed layer and thereby serves as a control for the global ocean climate.
  ONE Planet DTP - From plastics to protein: The potential of entomodigestion to process waste plastics into low-carbon, low emission protein (OP20202)
  Dr D George
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The functional role of biological organisms as decomposers in natural systems is well studied, with bioremediation representing an anthropomorphised function of this key ecosystem service.
  ONE Planet DTP - Geospatial big data analytics for global water security (OP20265)
  Prof J Mills
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Global water security – ensuring a reliable and acceptable quantity and quality of water, and managing water-related risks for all – is foundational to sustainable development.
  ONE Planet DTP - Integrated modelling to predict early signs of land degradation (OP20297)
  Dr M Montero-Calasanz
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

2.2 million tonnes of topsoil is eroded annually in the UK and over 17% of arable land show signs of degradation (Fig.1). Reversing soil degradation and restoring fertility by 2030 is an aim of the government’s 25 Year Environment Plan but there are insufficient data on the health of UK soils.
  ONE Planet DTP - Multiple benefits and opportunities from tree planting in the Southern Agricultural Growth Corridor of Tanzania (OP20203)
  Dr M Pfeifer
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sub-Saharan Africa faces tough climate change challenges and high rates of deforestation. It is the only region where human population growth will still be rising by 2080, and rising with it will be demands on land for resources and food production.
  ONE Planet DTP - Will fish cope with climate change? A conjunctive use approach for regulating stream temperature to maximise natural habitat survival rate during heatwaves. (OP202020)
  Dr C Walsh
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Heatwaves are becoming more frequent in areas where they are least expected. Recently, a major heatwave in South East England resulted in the death of nearly 6000 fish.
