  Incest and insects: How plant sex affects herbivores and pollinators
  Dr S Campbell, Prof M T Siva-jothy
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A long-standing paradigm in ecology and evolutionary biology suggests that the immense diversity of insects has been driven by adaptation to the defences of the plants they feed on.
  Atomic/Molecular insights into the formation of valuable products from waste biomass
  Dr X Zhang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lignocellulosic biomass is a green alternative fossil resource to produce fuels (e.g. transport fuel, aviation fuel) and value-added products (e.g.
  System design on co-production of transport fuel and value-added chemicals from waste biomass
  Dr X Zhang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is a national and global imperative to reduce reliance upon fossil fuels and, at the same time, to improve the efficiency of natural and renewable resource utilisation.
  Coupling shell growth and geochemistry in giant clams to explore biomineralization pathways
  Dr S Sosdian, Dr K Johnson, Dr D Muir, Dr N Santodomingo
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Background. Bivalves belonging to the subfamily Tridacnidae (the so-called ‘giant clams’) play an important ecological role in tropical reef environments, providing food and shelter to a wide variety of organisms, contributing to the reef framework, and counteracting eutrophication.
  14 fully funded studentships - an integrated approach to freshwater bioscience training

Funding Type

PhD Type

14 fully funded studentships - an integrated approach to freshwater bioscience training. Sustaining the World's freshwater ecosystems, while meeting the water demands of a growing population, will require a new brand of intellectually mobile and agile problem solvers.
  Assessing the applicability of Artificial Intelligence in the Environmental Impact Assessment process – a case study of oil and gas projects
  Dr B Anifowose
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project undertakes an empirical evaluation of AI and machine learning application to specific EIA operating principles for selected oil and gas projects.
  The identification of micro-pollutants in waste water using structural alerts and high resolution liquid chromatography mass spectrometry with non-targeted analysis
  Dr J Roberts, Dr M McNaughtan, Dr J MacLachlan, Dr D Watson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCEBE-19-025. The environmental problems associated with micro-pollutants such as pharmaceuticals and personal care products reaching water courses from waste water effluent are well documented.
  Fully Funded Rothamsted / Swansea (BBSRC SWBio DTP) PhD Studentship: Mass spectroscopy imaging of plant-fungi interactions: understanding symbiosis for sustainable crop production
  Prof W Griffiths, Dr Y Wang
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This studentship is funded by the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) as part of the South West Biosciences Doctoral Training Partnership (SWBio DTP).
  Water for the Future: Investigating the Effects of Future Land Use and Climate Change on Water Quality in Scotland
  Dr M Glendell, Dr S Halliday, Dr A Gimona
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Water pollution remains the main reason for the failure of many Scottish waterbodies to reach Good Ecological Status under the Water Framework Directive.
  [EPSRC - iCASE] Microbe – radionuclide interactions in legacy nuclear waste systems
  Prof J Lloyd, Prof K Morris, Prof S Shaw, Dr L Natrajan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent work in the Geomicrobiology Group at the University of Manchester has shown that microorganisms can have a controlling impact on the speciation (and hence mobility) of key radionuclides in a broad range of natural and engineered systems.
