  Novel Approaches to Engaging Land Managers in Monitoring the Impact of Agri-Environment-Climate Schemes
  Dr K Prager, Prof S Redpath
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Agri-environment-climate schemes (AECS) are a voluntary policy mechanism to incentivise and compensate farmers for undertaking environmental measures as part of their land management.
  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.
  Sustaining partnership approaches – evaluating effectiveness, health and longevity of agri-environmental collaboratives
  Dr K Prager, Dr T Potts
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A multitude of partnerships have developed between actors from the farming, environment, conservation, community, business and government sectors.
  Reducing the negative impact of agricultural drought by applying biochar to soil
  Research Group: Environmental and Isotope Geochemistry Group
  Dr L Trakal, Dr VS Sipek, Assoc Prof MP Pohorely
Application Deadline: 15 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This topic offers a multidisciplinary solution to currently highlighted issues such as drought, sustainable agriculture, limitation of nutrient leakage from soil, and also reducing CO2 emissions into the air.
  The use of infested wood by bark beetle as a source for the production of biochar
  Research Group: Environmental and Isotope Geochemistry Group
  Dr L Trakal, Prof MS Svoboda, Assoc Prof MP Pohorely
Application Deadline: 15 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The use of infested wood by bark beetle as a source for the production of biochar and its subsequent re-use in the context of drought solution during newly established forest nurseries and clear-cuts.
  Bridging the crop-soil-water phosphorus gap: Managing phosphorus for sustainable crop production and sustainable water
  Dr J Davies
Application Deadline: 12 March 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.
  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.
  Tracking Greenland’s Melting Ice from Space
  Dr M McMillan
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project offers the exciting opportunity to study Greenland ice sheet melting, and its associated impact upon global sea level rise, using recent advances in satellite and ground-based radar systems.
  Trajectories of soil structural change
  Prof J Quinton, Dr R Killick
Application Deadline: 2 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Linked to the NERC/NSF funded (2020-2023) ‘Detecting soil degradation and restoration through a novel coupled sensor and machine learning framework’(Soil Change) project.
