  The effect of air pollution on the behaviour of bacteria
  Dr J Morrissey, Prof J Ketley, Prof P W Andrew, Prof P Monks
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is at the cutting edge of investigations of the increase in infection resulting from airborne pollution. 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, 2017).
  Understanding domestic water use behaviour - PhD
  Dr H Smith, Dr P J Jeffrey
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This exciting fully funded PhD, will deliver innovative insights around domestic water use behaviours and the use of ‘smart’ water use sensors, in order to support more resilient water services well into the future against a backdrop of significant challenge.
  The effects of air pollution on the behaviour and allergenic potential of fungi
  Dr C Pashley, Dr J Morrissey
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fungi are an essential component of the ecosystem, but cause major economic loss through crop damage and infection of domesticated animals and livestock, and affect human health through infections, toxicosis, or allergy.
  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.
  The effect of air pollution on the interaction between bacteria and bacteriophage
  Dr J Morrissey, Prof M Clokie, Dr A Millard
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

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, 2017).
  Environmentally induced epigenetic effects in a fish
  Dr P J Watt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Animals may be exposed to a wide range of environmental stimuli over the course of their development, some of which may be harmful, such as pollutants, and these may subsequently affect their behaviour and/or physiology and that of their offspring.
  Chemical pollution and biodiversity: assessing risk to ecosystem services.
  Prof L L Maltby
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chemicals are a critical part of modern life and a cornerstone of any modern industrial strategy. However, chemicals released into the environment can have adverse effects on biodiversity and the benefits it provide to people (i.e.
  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.
  Population ecology in a changing world.
  Dr D Childs
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We invite applications for a PhD in the area of population ecology and demographic modelling. Our research tackles problems at the pure and applied ends of the spectrum.
  Dynamics of pollution transport in constructed wetlands: identification and quantification of underlying physical mechanisms of solute and solid (microplastic) transport
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr S Abolfathi, Dr J M Pearson
Application Deadline: 29 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Highlights. Generation of fundamental knowledge of the performance of natural capital waste-water treatment systems – constructed wetlands – that will underpin significant investment by the water industry from 2020-2027.
  Understanding interactions that determine the fate of microplastics in riverbed environments
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr J M Pearson, Prof G Bending
Application Deadline: 29 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Highlights. Developing novel methods to track and analyse microplastics. Design mesocosms to study the behaviour of microplastics in riverbed sediments.
  Early Stage Researcher (PhD Student) position in ecology and ecotoxicology.
  Prof L L Maltby, Prof P Warren
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding the potentially negative impacts of chemicals on ecosystems is essential to managing them sustainably. In particular, we need to understand the effects of chemicals on the direct and indirect contributions that ecosystems make to human well-being (i.e.
