  Resilience of human interactions with new landscapes (ESR 13)
  Prof J Wainwright, Dr L Turnbull-Lloyd
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

As human populations have settled landscapes in the past, they have changed the vegetation and surface characteristics in ways that have often led to a change in the stability of those landscapes (Wainwright, 2015).
  Machine learning based movement tracking from Internet-of-Things [IoT] devices to better understand the link between human behaviour and environmental stressors in cities
  Research Group: Atmospheric Science
  Dr D Topping, Prof J Evans
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The population in cities around the world is growing. Eighty-five per cent of humanity – some nine billion people - will live in cities by the end of this century.
  Pollution of freshwaters with selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors: a health perspective
  Dr P Beltran-Alvarez
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A range of pharmaceuticals including selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI) have routinely been measured in waterways, such as rivers and estuaries, in the ng/L range (e.g.
  QUADRAT DTP: The cost of being a fussy eater – Oligolectic pollinators and environmental change
  Dr F Manfredini, Dr L Scott
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Insect pollinators provide fundamental ecosystem services to natural and human-dominated communities. Different pollinators have different abilities to cope with environmental changes, due to differences in their behaviour, physiology and life-history traits.
  QUADRAT DTP: Can pollutant transfer through benthic elasmobranch food-chains be related to their feeding ecology?
  Prof A Meharg, Dr C S Jones
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A range of pollutants tend to biomagnify through marine food-chains, causing problems both for the health of top predators, and for humans that consume them.
  QUADRAT DTP: The impacts of climate change and extreme weather events on cyanobacteria blooms in lakes
  Dr H Roe, Dr A Douglas
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

There has been an increased awareness in recent years of the problems associated with harmful cyanobacteria algal blooms (cyanoHABs) in freshwater systems.
  PhD in Ecology and Environment: how ecosystems, and the species they contain, respond to environmental change and how to reduce and mitigate adverse impacts
  Dr C Voigt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Environmental change threatens biodiversity, altering ecosystem processes and provision of ecosystem services. These environmental change pressures are accelerating due to growing human populations and accompanying climate change, land use, pollution and invasive species.
  SCENARIO - Understanding risks and optimising anaerobic digestion to minimise pathogen and antimicrobial resistance genes entering the environment.
  Dr D Saroj
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Anaerobic digestion (AD) utilises organic materials to produce energy via biogas while also producing nutrient-rich digestate ideal for application to land as a fertiliser.
