  New methods for calculating the oceans role in absorbing key greenhouse gases. PhD in Renewable Energy (NERC GW4 + DTP)
  Dr I Ashton
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Dr Ian Ashton, Department of Engineering, College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences, University of Exeter.
  OUR CHANGING OCEANS: data science and the marine carbon cycle. PhD in Geography (NERC GW4+ DTP)
  Dr U Schuster

  GW4 FRESH CDT PhD Studentship: Chlorine reduction wetlands
  Dr J Wenk
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Centre for Doctoral Training in Freshwater Biosciences and Sustainability (GW4 FRESH CDT) which is offering up to 14 studentships to start in September 2020.
  Forever Blowing Bubbles: Quantifying Methane Discharge from Inland Water Systems (IAPETUS2 Project)
  Dr A Bass, Dr C Gauchotte-Lindsay
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Methane (CH4) is one of the most potent greenhouse gases and a significant regulator of global climate. Significant CH4 degassing occurs from inland aquatic systems, but substantial variability in spatial and temporal flux rates mean quantifying and characterising this pathway is challenging.
  Microbial interactions in unique chemosynthetic ecosystems –an integrated ‘Omic approach
  Dr D Kumaresan, Prof J Mcgrath, Dr R Doherty
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Despite the lack of photosynthetically-fixed carbon, the Movile Cave ecosystem hosts a diverse range of invertebrates.
  Can beaver-modified ecosystems mitigate water quality deterioration caused by both point and diffuse source pollution? PhD in Geography (NERC FRESH)
  Dr R Brazier
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Professor Richard Brazier, Department of Geography, University of Exeter. Additional supervisors. Dr Gemma Coxon, School of Geographical Sciences, University of Bristol.
  Mathematical ecology of ocean food webs
  Prof M Heath
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Marine sonar records have long documented the existence of a layer of acoustic scattering at around 400m depth throughout the world’s oceans, which can undertake diel (night-time) vertical migrations to the near-surface waters.
  GW4 FRESH CDT PhD Studentship: Chemical and ecological effects of combined sewer overflows on rivers
  Prof J Hofman
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Dr Stephen Sitch, Department of Georgraphy, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter. Additional Supervisors.
  ONE Planet DTP - Barriers to tree re-establishment in logged tropical rainforests in Borneo
  Prof Y Teh
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Using a quasi-experimental approach and spatial modelling, this project will test the influence of natural and anthropogenic factors on the success of natural forest restoration in an expansive landscape dominated by oil palm production (Northern Borneo).
  ONE Planet DTP - “Quantifying the impact of artificial lawns on the structure and function of urban ecosystems” (Ref: OP20295)
  Dr M Goddard
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Description. Understanding how the management of urban habitats affects biodiversity and the provision of ecosystem services is essential for creating sustainable and liveable cities.
  Temporal and Spatial Carbon Cycle Dynamics of an Evolving Tropical Delta (IAPETUS 2 Project)
  Dr A Bass, Dr P Gulliver
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Deltas and associated wetlands are a relatively minor surface feature, comprising less than 4-6% of the terrestrial land area. However, deltas have a disproportionately critical role in carbon stocks and fluxes, a role that is subject to dynamic changes both natural and anthropogenic.
