  Hot stuff? Evaluating the human exposure hazard presented by land contaminated with organic flame retardants
  Prof S J Harrad, Dr M Abdallah
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chemical flame retardants (FRs) such as polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) and chlorinated organophosphates (e.g. tris (2-chloroisopropyl)phosphate – TCIPP) have been used extensively in a wide range of applications worldwide.
  Total Atmospheric Emissions from the Biosphere
  Dr W J Bloss, Dr L Kramer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The dominant source of hydrocarbons to the atmosphere is vegetation – biogenic volatile organic compounds or BVOCs. In the atmosphere, BVOCs undergo chemical processing, leading to the formation of secondary pollutants such as ozone and organic aerosol particles, affecting human and environmental health and climate.
  Information under anthropogenic change: how does social living respond to increased noise and turbidity?
  Dr C Ioannou, Prof A Radford
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many species, across a wide range of taxa, rely on indirect information from others in addition to private information they have acquired directly from their environment.
  The effects of light pollution on navigating animals
  Prof N W Roberts
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Both insect and spider biodiversity are decreasing worldwide. While their terrestrial ecosystems are being damaged by numerous human activities such as agricultural intensification, urbanization, and climate change, sensory pollutants such as light and sound are further intensifying population declines.
  The impact of air pollution on bacteria colonisation and virulence.
  Dr J Morrissey, Prof J Ketley, Prof P W Andrew
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Air pollution is the world’s largest single environmental health risk, being responsible for an eighth of all global deaths per year (World Health Organisation, 2014).
  Microplastic hotspots on the deep seafloor: Investigating the role of seafloor currents in microplastic transport and accumulation
  Dr M Clare, Prof A Cundy, Dr A Horton, Dr I Kane
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. There is growing concern about the impact of plastic pollution (particularly microplastics) on ocean ecosystems and human health[1].
  Planting for silence: the role of domestic gardens in mitigating urban noise pollution
  Dr P.E. Osborne, Dr P White, Prof A Griffiths, Dr T Blanusa
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. According to the WHO, noise pollution is second only to ultra-fine particulate matter in its impact on human health.
