  NERC GW4+ DTP Projects 2020: (Living World, Changing Planet) Advancing the study of photosynthetic life in extreme cryo-environments
  Dr C Williamson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Permanently cold ecosystems make up more than 70% of the Earth’s biosphere, though paradoxically, the microorganisms that thrive in these extreme habitats are the most poorly understood.
  Designing protected areas networks that incorporate animal movement and habitat connectivity (FRANCOUENV20ARIES)
  Dr A Franco, Prof C Peres, Dr T Luisetti
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BACKGROUND. The establishment of robust networks of protected areas is key to address biodiversity loss. Species that move between breeding and non-breeding sites are among those that are most challenging to protect.
  Developing a simple, cost-effective way to assess peatland health on the molecular level
  Dr N Bell, Dr M Graham, Dr R Andersen
Application Deadline: 9 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Peatlands store twice the C stored in all Earth’s standing forests and thus have major significance in terms of climate change mitigation (1).
  How do changing global aerosols affect clouds, the diurnal temperature cycle, and heat-waves?
  Prof M Heal, Dr D Stevenson, Dr M Bollasina
Application Deadline: 9 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Aerosols are micron-scale particles suspended in the atmosphere, and are derived from a variety of natural and anthropogenic processes.
  Informing Design of Novel Materials for Drug Pollution Remediation through Molecular Modelling
  Dr V Erastova
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Summary. In this project, molecular modeling will be used to bring atomic-level understanding to the retention and release of contaminants by soils.
  Effects of dispersants on mitigating environmental impacts of marine oil pollution: insights from microbiological, chemical and field investigations.
  Dr B McKew, Dr R Holland, Dr T J McGenity
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Scientific background. Oil spills are one of the most challenging threats to the marine environment that can have long-. term impacts on fisheries, the economy and society.
  Fate, transformation and effect of microplastics on microbial communities in the environment
  Dr C Whitby, Dr P Laissue, Dr A G Mayes, Prof R Thompson
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Scientific background. Microplastics enter ecosystems, where they affect microorganisms and their processes. Microbial-driven ammonia-oxidation is fundamental to the environmental cycling of nitrogen (N) and ammonia-oxidisers are highly sensitive to environmental perturbations.
  FULLY FUNDED PHD: The effects of urbanization on physiological indicators of welfare in bats
  Dr D Hill, Prof K Park
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

  Measuring the atmospheric particles which make ice in clouds and climate projections uncertain
  Prof B Murray, Dr S Arnold, Prof K Carslaw
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The formation of ice in clouds is one of the least well understood aspects of the planet’s climate system.
  A seasonal study of chlorine’s tropospheric chemistry in Britain (CENTA2-CHEM4-BAL2)
  Dr S Ball, Prof P S Monks, Dr R Sommariva
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Natural and manmade processes emit huge quantities of gases. Were it not for oxidation chemistry occurring in the atmosphere, such emissions would build up to harmful concentrations.
