  New experimental constraints on atmospheric Hg red-ox reactions.
  Dr M Horvat
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The main objective is to understand aqueous Hg red-ox mechanisms and rates from an experimental perspective.
  QUADRAT DTP: Quantifying carbon accumulation and loss in Russian Arctic peatlands
  Dr D Mauquoy, Dr M Blaauw
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Peatlands in Russia (and North America) are a major terrestrial carbon store and a natural sink for atmospheric CO2 during the Holocene (Charman et al., 2013, holding around 612 gigatonnes of carbon, which represents a larger stock than the worlds live vegetation.
  Assessing the capacity of seagrass meadows in the Solent (UK) for blue carbon sequestration
  Dr F Ragazzola, Dr S Reynolds,, Dr M Cerasuolo
Application Deadline: 23 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a fully-funded three year PhD to commence in October 2020. The PhD will be based in the Faculty of Science and Health, and will be supervised by Dr Federica Ragazzola, Dr Sarah Reynolds and Dr Marianna Cerasuolo.
  QUADRAT DTP: Is macroalgal carbon sequestration the ’elephant in the Blue Carbon room’ ?
  Prof U Witte, Dr K O'Driscoll
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Marine plants draw down CO2, and in a world of rising atmospheric CO2 levels carbon sinks in vegetated coastal ecosystems can sequester CO2 on geological time scales and are now referred to as ’Blue Carbon’.
  Marine Hg species dynamics and distribution.
  Dr L Heimbürger-Boavida
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mercury is one of the least concentrated elements in the ocean, and its complex biogeochemical cyling drives ultimately the biomagnification of methylmercury into marine fish.
  Tracking changes in Archean ocean chemistry: Experimental constraints on the magnitude of stable isotope fractionation during the development of banded iron formations.
  Dr A McCoy West
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

PhD projects which will place new constraints on the evolution of the early Earth, which encompass both high and low temperature geochemistry, isotope geochemistry and igneous/metamorphic petrology are available at Monash University, Melbourne, Australia.
  Tracking changes in Archean ocean chemistry: New insights by applying a coupled stable isotope approach in banded iron formations
  Dr A McCoy West
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

PhD projects which will place new constraints on the evolution of the early Earth, which encompass both high and low temperature geochemistry, isotope geochemistry and igneous/metamorphic petrology are available at Monash University, Melbourne, Australia.
  ONE Planet DTP - : Qualitifying stocks and fluxes of organic carbon in the Atlantic saltmarshes of the Solway Firth and the threats posed by climatic change. (Ref: OP20235)
  Dr M Deary
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Atlantic saltmarshes of the Solway Firth represent nearly 25% of the UK total. These wetlands support internationally important biodiversity yet are highly vulnerable to coastal squeeze; eroded by the sea and reclaimed for our use inland.
  From branch to forest to globe: How do trees choices regarding growth affect forest responses to increased carbon dioxide levels?
  Dr T Pugh, Dr J Larsen, Dr B Smith, Prof B Medlyn
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Forests of the future will be subjected to levels of carbon dioxide for which there is no analogue in the current world.
  Priming of defence in an elevated CO2 world
  Dr E Luna-Diez, Dr S Hayward
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Anthropogenic activity has raised the atmospheric and this is predicted to rise further over the course of the 21st century. Whilst elevated CO2 (eCO2) may increase plant productivity, several publications have described changes in the defensive capacity of plants after exposure of eCO2.
