  SCENARIO - Causal discovery algorithms for the study of climate change impacts on the global water cycle
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr M.I. Hegglin, Dr V Ojha
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The water cycle plays a critical role in shaping the global environment and supporting life on Earth. Climate change is predicted to lead to changes in the water cycle, affect available water resources, and as a consequence endanger the livelihoods of societies especially in the developing world.
  Holocene reconstruction of terrestrial habitats and dispersal pathways in the Antarctic Peninsula and sub-Antarctic Islands
  Dr S Nogue-Bosch, Prof Peter Convey, Prof ME Edwards, Dr D.A. Hodgson
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Terrestrial environments of the sub-Antarctic and Antarctic present extreme challenges for life.
  Water Engineering: Complex Natural River Flow Modelling and Flood Analysis
  Research Group: Centre For Sustainable Environments
  Dr J Pu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The study on flooding, and identifying suitable ways to mitigate floods, have become a top priority for Government and the Environmental Agency, due to increasing flood frequency and intensity around the UK.
  QUADRAT DTP: Unravelling the freshwater microbial phosphorus cycle
  Prof J Mcgrath, Dr C Gubry-Rangin, Dr J Chin, Dr B Spears
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Eutrophication of freshwater environments via anthropogenic phosphorus (P) input is one of the most serious global water management issues.
  In-situ reduction reduction of greenhouse gases from the Athabasca oil sands tailings ponds: detailed insights using ultrahigh resolution mass spectrometry
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr M Barrow, Prof G Bending
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Highlights. State-of-the-art mass spectrometry instrumentation (amongst world-leading). International environmental research.
  NERC-funded PhD studentships: Department of Earth Science and Engineering, Imperial College London

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Science and Solutions for a Changing Planet (SSCP) Doctoral Training Partnership integrates six host partners and a number of business and policy sector partners, to offer an exciting programme that trains and inspires the next generation of environmental experts and leaders to tackle some of the toughest challenges of our time.
  Severe weather over Southeast Asia: fieldwork and modelling
  Dr C Birch, Dr J Marsham, Dr R Neely
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Maritime Continent in Southeast Asia is a key region in the global weather and climate system. Its complex island geography and position among the warmest oceans on Earth lead to a multi-scale concoction of severe atmospheric convective and dynamical weather systems.
  Closing loopholes in the nitrogen cycle: Nitrification now and in the future
  Dr A Yool, Prof T Tyrrell, Dr A Martin, Prof N Bates
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Nitrification ( oxidation) of ammonia (NH3) back to nitrate (NO3-) is an important regenerative step in the nitrogen cycles of both marine and terrestrial systems.
  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.
  Tree microbiomes in a changing climate
  Dr G Kettles
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plant pathogens pose major challenges to the production of crops and in the resilience of our trees and forests. How we protect plants from their most damaging pathogens is therefore vital to a future of sustainable agriculture within a healthy ecosystem.
  UKRI Centre for Doctoral Training in Environmental Intelligence – Data Science & AI for Sustainable Futures

Funding Type

PhD Type

 Study for a fully funded 4-year PhD in Environmental Intelligence, starting in September 2020.
  Detecting the effect of climate change on animals: how mathematics can help optimise data-gathering efforts
  Dr J Potts, Dr S Patrick
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Are you a mathematics/statistics graduate, or finalist, with an interest in animal conservation and a desire to use your knowledge to help understand and mitigate against climate change?.
  Unravelling the global microbiome of crop plants to improve sustainability and food security
  Prof G Bending, Dr C Quince
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants live in close association with complex communities of microbes which together constitute their ‘microbiome’. The microbiome interacts with the plant in numerous ways; some microbes are beneficial and promote plant growth, while others are pathogens which reduce crop yields.
  Pathways to Realistic Impact Modelling in Estuarine Areas (PRIMEA)
  Dr P Robins, Dr S Neill
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Estuaries connect terrestrial and marine environments, providing one of the most productive ecosystems on Earth. Complex land-sea interactions combined with intensive land-use and land-value mean that they are at heightened risk from flooding and poor health.
  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.
  QUADRAT DTP CASE: The role of biodiversity in mitigating parasite impacts in farmed landscapes
  Prof M Emmerson, Prof J Travis, Dr A Aubry
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biodiversity provides a range of benefits for the functioning of ecosystems, but it also helps to limit the spread of disease. This occurs because congeneric species in a community can compete with vectors of disease limiting the abundance of the vector and hence the overall prevalence of the disease.
  Testing the links between magmatic, tectonic and climate controls on hydrothermal activity at the Mid-Atlantic Ridge
  Dr A Lichtschlag, Dr B Murton, Prof R James
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. High temperature hydrothermal activity at mid-ocean ridges is driven mainly by magmatic heat and crystallization and responds to structural processes that open-up and maintain fluid pathways from the interior of the ocean crust to the seafloor.
  Circadian rhythms in plant-microbe interactions
  Prof G Bending, Dr I A Carré
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants live in close association with complex communities of microbes which together constitute their ‘microbiome’. The microbiome interacts with the plant in numerous ways; some microbes are beneficial and promote plant growth, while others are pathogens which reduce crop yields.
