  Herbivore and mycorrhizal mediation of carbon cycling in heather moorlands
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Dr S M Sait, Prof K. Field, Prof P Chapman
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The multiple drivers of environmental change, such as climate change and pollution, have led to widespread negative impacts on ecosystem functioning and services that are critical for human well-being.
  NERC GW4+ DTP Projects 2020: (Dynamic Earth, Living World, Changing Planet) Microbial life and carbon cycling in glaciers environments
  Dr P Sanchez-Baracaldo, Prof J L Wadham
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Probing novel pathways of carbon cycling in glaciers using metageomics. Carbon is essential for life and forms the building blocks of all organic compounds.
  EASTBIO: Microbial carbon cycling traits in soils across land use gradients.
  Dr A Malik, Prof E Paterson, Dr C Gubry-Rangin
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisors. Dr Ashish A Malik (University of Aberdeen). https://www.ashishmalik.co. Professor Eric Paterson (The James Hutton Institute).
  The role of lateral and tree transport in methane cycling in tropical peatlands
  Dr S Pangala
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tropical peatlands in Southeast Asia have sequestered carbon over thousands of years and are an important global carbon stock.
  Linking Microbial Physiology with Carbon Transformations in Peatlands Under Land Use Change
  Dr A Malik, Dr R Andersen, Dr R Artz, Prof J Smith
Application Deadline: 9 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Significant amount of carbon is stored in soils, particularly in peatlands. Increasing food and energy needs have led to intensive land use practices that deplete soil organic carbon (SOC) stores.
  Understanding the ecological role of organic matter (OM) in urban freshwaters
  Dr D Read, Prof RP Evershed, Prof P Johnes, Mr J Bryden
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Organic matter (OM) is an essential component of freshwater ecosystems, fuelling the microbial food-web and primary production, influencing rates of greenhouse gas exchange with the atmosphere and changing water quality and ecosystem health through light attenuation.
  Integrated Tropical Peatlands Research Program
  Dr M Lupascu, Prof D Taylor
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Two fully-funded PhD positions are available at the Department of Geography, National University of Singapore within the Integrated Tropical Peatlands Research Programme (INTPREP), a new initiative that brings together tropical peatland research expertise in Singapore and internationally.
  Plankton size, climate and ocean function through time.
  Dr S Gibbs, Dr B Ward, Prof P Bown
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Plankton are fundamental to life on Earth as the base of the marine food web and an important carbon sink.
  Tracking carbon and nitrogen fixing organisms in the oceanic microbiome
  Dr T Bibby, Dr P Lam, Prof W Huang
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Complex marine microbial communities catalyze global cycling of carbon and nitrogen that regulate the Earth’s climate.
  SEESALT: Novel ways to ’SEE’ coastal ’SALT’ marshes using low-cost drones and sensors
  Dr D Green, Dr D Mauquoy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Saltmarshes are found extensively along low wave energy coastlines resulting from fine sediment accumulation and vegetation establishment.
