  The role of lateral and tree transport in methane cycling in tropical peatlands
  Dr S Pangala
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tropical peatlands in Southeast Asia have sequestered carbon over thousands of years and are an important global carbon stock.
  Metal speciation in a dynamic intermittent hypoxic marine environment (Loch Etive, Scotland)
  Dr P Salaun, Prof J Sharples, Prof M Inall, Mr T Brand
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The goal if this project is to determine the biogeochemical cycling of trace metals in an intermittent oxygen-poor marine system.
  Understanding the ecological role of organic matter (OM) in urban freshwaters
  Dr D Read, Prof RP Evershed, Prof P Johnes, Mr J Bryden
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Organic matter (OM) is an essential component of freshwater ecosystems, fuelling the microbial food-web and primary production, influencing rates of greenhouse gas exchange with the atmosphere and changing water quality and ecosystem health through light attenuation.
  Distribution modelling and the management and conservation of European ectomycorrhizal communities
  Dr M Bidartondo, Dr C D L Orme
Application Deadline: 23 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project, the student will develop cutting-edge distributional models of dominant ectomycorrhizal (ECM) fungal species across Europe and establish vital practice and policy recommendations for the monitoring, management and conservation of these ecologically critical organisms.
  Facilitating the circular economy in India’s food security: the social, economic and agronomic barriers and opportunities of wastewater
  Dr K V Heal, Dr A Gathorne-Hardy, Dr H Gorringe
Application Deadline: 9 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project summary. This interdisciplinary project combines environmental and social science to quantify the potential benefits of wastewater for Indian agriculture, as well as understanding the social barriers to wastewater use, and identifying opportunities to overcome these.
  Fate, transformation and effect of microplastics on microbial communities in the environment
  Dr C Whitby, Dr P Laissue, Dr A G Mayes, Prof R Thompson
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Scientific background. Microplastics enter ecosystems, where they affect microorganisms and their processes. Microbial-driven ammonia-oxidation is fundamental to the environmental cycling of nitrogen (N) and ammonia-oxidisers are highly sensitive to environmental perturbations.
  Assessing the effects of microplastics on marine benthic communities
  Dr D Mayor, Dr J Godbold, Dr B Thornton, Dr A Horton
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Continental shelf sediments are biogeochemical hotspots. Interactions between benthic invertebrates and bacteria drive the remineralization of organic matter, returning inorganic nutrients to the overlying waters and stimulating primary production.
  Temporal variability of the carbon system across the Atlantic Ocean; causes and implications
  Dr S Hartman, Dr R James, Dr P Brown, Dr A Schaap
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Approximately 25% of the carbon dioxide (CO2) produced by fossil fuel combustion enters the ocean. Without this sink, the rate of CO2 buildup in the atmosphere would be larger than it is.
