  Improving UK air quality forecasts during heatwaves
  Dr R Hossaini, Prof J Wild
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Poor air quality is a major global health concern affecting all industrialised nations and virtually all of society. Worldwide, ~3 million deaths are attributable to air pollution annually (World Health Organization), with ~40,000 premature deaths in the UK alone (Royal College of Physicians).
  Understanding the ecological role of organic matter (OM) in urban freshwaters
  Dr D Read, Prof RP Evershed, Prof P Johnes, Mr J Bryden
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Organic matter (OM) is an essential component of freshwater ecosystems, fuelling the microbial food-web and primary production, influencing rates of greenhouse gas exchange with the atmosphere and changing water quality and ecosystem health through light attenuation.
  Microbial sunscreens for better life
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr V Stavros, Dr C Corre
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Highlights. · To develop novel biosynthetic procedures for producing environment-friendly UV sunscreens. · To characterise UV sunscreens with state-of-the-art analytical (laser based) techniques.
  Ochres, aggregates and carbon sequestration – can geoengineering save the planet?
  Prof M Hodson, Dr P Schofield
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Carbon dioxide is building up in the atmosphere and heating up our planet. The sustainable solution to minimise societal and environmental damage that global warming is causing is to transition to carbon neutral lifestyles.

Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The growing consumption of materials in our digital society represents an ever increasing waste stream containing novel and complex mixtures of chemicals, including many oxyanion forming contaminants (OFCs, e.g.
  Better air quality through chemistry: Real-time monitoring of reactive trace species in key atmospheric reactions impacting air quality
  Dr D Stone, Prof P Seakins
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Poor air quality has been reported as the greatest environmental risk to public health in the UK, has recently been linked to dementia, and is estimated to cause over 40,000 premature deaths in the UK each year.
  Understanding urban trees: form, function and vulnerability
  Dr J Edmondson, Dr H Croft, Prof C P Osborne, Dr N McHugh
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

More than half the global population already live in urban areas and that figure will rise to 66% by 2020. Ecosystem service provision in urban areas is therefore becoming increasingly important for people’s quality of life and the wider environment, to which urban trees make a disproportionate contribution.
