  New experimental constraints on atmospheric Hg red-ox reactions.
  Dr M Horvat
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The main objective is to understand aqueous Hg red-ox mechanisms and rates from an experimental perspective.
  Assessing the capacity of seagrass meadows in the Solent (UK) for blue carbon sequestration
  Dr F Ragazzola, Dr S Reynolds,, Dr M Cerasuolo
Application Deadline: 23 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a fully-funded three year PhD to commence in October 2020. The PhD will be based in the Faculty of Science and Health, and will be supervised by Dr Federica Ragazzola, Dr Sarah Reynolds and Dr Marianna Cerasuolo.
  Marine Hg species dynamics and distribution.
  Dr L Heimbürger-Boavida
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mercury is one of the least concentrated elements in the ocean, and its complex biogeochemical cyling drives ultimately the biomagnification of methylmercury into marine fish.
  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

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.
  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.
  Optimizing soil nitrogen in babyleaf salad crops for sustainable crop production
  Dr E J Shaw
Application Deadline: 17 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The use of synthetic nitrogen fertilizers has been responsible for increased food production more than any other input to farming.
  Impacts of Climate Change on Ecosystems
  Prof G Phoenix
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change is one of the greatest threats to biodiversity and ecosystem functioning.
  PhD in Plants and Microbes: crop production and protection, the interaction between plants and other plants, pests and pathogens, and soils, and the interactions of ecosystems with global change
  Dr C Voigt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants underpin life on Earth. In Sheffield, world leading plant research is undertaken across all scales from the molecular level through to the leaf and root, whole plant and ecosystem.
  ‘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.
  Bridging the crop-soil-water phosphorus gap: Managing phosphorus for sustainable crop production and sustainable water
  Dr J Davies
Application Deadline: 17 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Phosphorus (P) sits at the heart of our DNA and the centre of our food system as a widely used agricultural fertilizer. Increased use of P fertilizers over the past 60 years has supported food production and growing populations, but their use also presents us with a number of inter-related sustainability challenges.
  Meltwater Ice-Sheet interactions and the changing climate of Greenland
  Dr A Leeson
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Greenland Ice Sheet (GrIS) is shrinking as Earth’s climate warms. In fact, meltwater which runs off the ice sheet is expected to contribute ~10 cm to global sea level by 2100.
  Roots to resilience: climate-proofing crop yields within future salad production
  Prof I Dodd
Application Deadline: 17 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change threatens UK lettuce production by decreasing rainfall and increasing plant water loss. Lettuce plants are initially raised in small peat blocks in a nursery, then transplanted into the fields.
  Sun drenched or sun starved: Evaluating climate and ecosystem impacts of solar energy development
  Dr A Armstrong
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The rationale. Decarbonisation of energy supplies to mitigate climate change is triggering notable land take across the world. Land-use change is the greatest driver of decline in nature and therefore, such decisions risk trading global-scale climate change for local-scale ecosystem degradation.
  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.
  Strategies for Increasing Crop Stress Tolerance
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Dr G Johnson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Humanity is facing a growing food crisis – the “perfect storm” of growing world populations and changing climates mean we urgently need to increase crop productivity, including by increasing environmental stress tolerance.
