  Community assembly processes of soil ammonia oxidisers under different nitrogen use efficiency strategies
  Dr C Gubry-Rangin, Dr T Caruso
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Microbial communities mediate important global biogeochemical cycles and a better understanding of the mechanisms of community assembly is therefore important.
  Disentangling palaeodiet: Modern and archaeological case studies in compound-specific nitrogen isotope analysis - QUADRAT
  Dr K Britton, Dr N Ogle
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The nitrogen isotope analysis of individual amino acids represents a potentially powerful tool for estimating trophic positions and the source of dietary protein in archaeological case studies.
  Flying sentinels: using a long-distance migratory bird to assess exposure to POPs over two continents and their health consequences
  Dr P Bize, Dr R Doherty
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Human activities have for side effects the introduction in natural environments of persistent organic pollutants (POPs).
  MOSAIC: Microplastics in Scotland and Northern Ireland Catchment and Marine Environments - QUADRAT
  Dr D Muirhead, Dr R Flood
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The current understanding of microplastic flux between terrestrial and marine environments is extremely limited and considered primarily in ‘pristine environments’ (e.g., Arctic ice).
  Precious metals of the Anthropocene - QUADRAT
  Dr T Mighall, Prof A Meharg
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Understanding the consequences of metal pollution is of increasing importance given the ever-growing consumption of resources and the increasing sophistication of metallic products, creating new and different types of waste, which is often discarded into the environment (Nriagu, 1990).
  Something in the wind...reconstructing the position and strength of the Southern Hemisphere Westerly winds - QUADRAT
  Dr D Mauquoy, Dr M Blaauw
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The aim of this project is to use peat deposits in southern South America to identify long-term changes in the strength and position of the Southern Westerly winds (SWW) during the last ~2000 years.
  Towards integrated adaptive management of an endangered elasmobranch in the North East Atlantic.
  Dr C S Jones, Prof A Meharg
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Increasing use is made of marine protected areas (MPAs) to locally manage and conserve marine biodiversity. Although highly mobile, with complex temporal and spatial movement patterns, many endangered elasmobranchs show site association to critical habitats at important life history stages.
  Carbon footprint of novel uses of organic wastes for sustainable production of chemicals and materials
  Prof J Smith, Dr D Vega-Maza
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
There is an urgent global need to develop new and innovative strategies for the sustainable production of chemicals and materials using renewable feedstocks and renewable energy.
  Biogas upgrading by means of cyclic adsorption processes
  Dr C Fernandez-Martin, Prof J Anderson
Applications accepted all year round
This project will study a frontier technology to decrease the overall current energy penalty of the biogas upgrading process.
  Cleaning and waste management during Oil and Gas decommissioning: destabilisation of colloidal suspensions
  Dr D Vega-Maza, Dr A Syed
Applications accepted all year round
Cleaning of oil and gas facilities and management of waste streams during decommissioning require a fundamental understanding of the stability and interactions of gels, foams, emulsions and sludge between them and other materials.
