  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.
  Invasive species and water resources: developing the evidence base for effective mitigation to prevent the spread of invasive non-native species through water transfer networks
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Dr A M Dunn, Prof M Tillotson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Invasive Non Native Species (INNS) cost the UK over £2bn pa and are an increasing threat to aquatic biodiversity and ecosystems.
  Digging deep: biological mechanisms of organic carbon sequestration and storage in soil
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Prof K. Field, Prof C.L. Peacock, Prof P Chapman, Prof J Holden
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Loss of soil organic carbon (SOC) is one of the most pressing challenges of the 21st Century, contributing to climate change, reducing soil fertility and capability for growing crops, reducing water holding capacity and increasing erosion which increases flood risk.
  Salt intrusion and salinization management in coastal areas for a sustainable food production and ecosystem health
  Dr N Leonardi, Dr N Shokri
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to aid sustainable food production and the maintenance of healthy ecosystems by unravelling the relationship between salinity-induced land degradation and sea level rise/storms and by developing synthetic indicators translating flood and coastal erosion hazard maps into land degradation indices to serve as reference for land-use management practices.
  NERC-funded PhD studentships: Departments of Chemical Engineering and Civil & Environmental Engineering, Engineering Imperial College London
