  Combining carbon, hydrogen and Hg compound specific isotope analysis to understand MMHg origin.
  Dr D Point
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

All humans are exposed to toxic monomethyl-Hg (MMHg) when we consume marine fish. The origin of MMHg in marine ecosystems is however not well understood.
  Community-based approaches for the implementation of Nature-based solutions against coastal erosion
  Dr A Ollauri, Dr K Munro, Dr S B Mickovski
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCEBE-19-024. Coastal erosion is a natural hazard which frequency and intensity will likely increase as a result of sea-level rise and storm surges due to climate change.
  ‘Cos’ it’s worth it! Investigating how to mitigate ozone damage to salad crops
  Dr K Ashworth
Application Deadline: 17 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ground-level ozone is a powerful oxidant that causes severe damage to plant cells. In fast-growing leafy salad crops, the first symptom is often visible injury (discolouration or spotting of leaves) which can be difficult to distinguish from signs of nutrient deficiency.
  The role of lateral and tree transport in methane cycling in tropical peatlands
  Dr S Pangala
Application Deadline: 30 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tropical peatlands in Southeast Asia have sequestered carbon over thousands of years and are an important global carbon stock.
  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

 The Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC ) has awarded a Collaborative Training Partnership (CTP) grant to a consortium led by Berry Gardens Growers Ltd and NIAB EMR.
  Radio-tagging earwigs to understand the breakdown in successful woolly apple aphid, Eriosoma lanigerum (Hausmann) control
  Dr M Fountain, Dr B Shaw
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

  Aerobiology and the Arctic - microbial colonization of remote polar environments.(Ref: SF20/APP/PEARCE3)
  Prof D Pearce
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The rate of dispersal to an ecosystem can significantly influence ecosystem dynamics. Aerial transport has also been identified as an important source of biological input to remote locations.
  Microorganisms entombed in Polar ice – assessing the potential emergence of new diseases (Ref: SF20/APP/PEARCE1)
  Prof D Pearce
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The melting Polar Ice caps and receding glaciers worldwide are resulting in the emergence of microorganisms entombed in the ice for considerable periods of time.
