  Flow characteristics and sediment transport in vegetated compound channels
  Research Group: Centre For Sustainable Environments
  Prof Y Guo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project is to examine the effect of vegetations on the open channel/river flow and sediment transport. It is well known that plants can reduce flow velocity, and thus sediment transport by creating additional flow resistance, leading to the increase of the river flooding.
  Environmental assessment of offshore wind energy devices
  Research Group: Centre For Sustainable Environments
  Prof Y Guo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The installation of Offshore Wind Energy Device (OWED) will inevitably alter the flow patterns around the devices. This may enhance the sediment transport and scour around the foundation, thus leading to the instability of offshore wind energy device foundation, and further resultant failure of the whole system.
  Lead isotope ratio measurements in microcosms and avian samples as indicators for the source of lead poisoning in wildfowl
  Dr J Barker, Dr S Barton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead (Pb) poisoning is commonly linked amongst anthropogenically-caused deaths in waterfowl and this is often associated with hunting and fishing activities.
  Planetary protection and the search for life in the outer solar system (ref: SF18/APP/Pearce)
  Prof D Pearce
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The search for life in the outer solar system is centred on the search for water and the conditions which are known to support the ‘envelope of life’ on Earth.
  Carbon sequestration and storage in Irish coastal wetlands
  Dr G Cott
Application Deadline: 17 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Coastal wetland ecosystems are critical to maintaining human well-being and global carbon cycling.
