  Hot stuff? Evaluating the human exposure hazard presented by land contaminated with organic flame retardants
  Prof S J Harrad, Dr M Abdallah
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chemical flame retardants (FRs) such as polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) and chlorinated organophosphates (e.g. tris (2-chloroisopropyl)phosphate – TCIPP) have been used extensively in a wide range of applications worldwide.
  Chemosensors for atmospheric peroxyl radical investigations (CAPRI)
  Dr T J Dillon, Dr A R Rickard, Dr V Chechik
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Atmospheric chemistry lies at the heart of a wide range of environmental issues of substantial societal and economic impacts.
  Total Atmospheric Emissions from the Biosphere
  Dr W J Bloss, Dr L Kramer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The dominant source of hydrocarbons to the atmosphere is vegetation – biogenic volatile organic compounds or BVOCs. In the atmosphere, BVOCs undergo chemical processing, leading to the formation of secondary pollutants such as ozone and organic aerosol particles, affecting human and environmental health and climate.
  Next-generation model for plant ozone damage: a big step towards smaller uncertainties and more robust climate predictions. PhD in Mathematics (NERC GW4+ DTP)
  Prof N Unger
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Prof Nadine Unger, Department of Mathematics, College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences, University of Exeter.
  Unlocking Western Tropical Indian Ocean temperature and hydroclimate back to the Little Ice Age and the Holocene, reconstructed from coral geochemistry
  Prof J Zinke
Application Deadline: 21 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Indian Ocean sea surface temperatures (SST) play an important role in determining the location of precipitation over the tropics and the Indian Monsoon regions.
  Fishing in hot water: are the ecological impacts of trawling exacerbated by climate change?
  Dr L Robinson, Dr M Spencer
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Proactive fisheries management requires understanding of ecological consequences of trawling in warmer seas. While the impacts of bottom trawling and climate change are increasingly well-documented, little is known about how these pressures interact.
  Can enhanced weathering provide an effective climate change mitigation strategy?
  Dr C Pearce, Dr G Andrews, Prof R James
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Anthropogenic inputs of carbon dioxide (CO2) to the atmosphere are the primary cause of global warming.
  Climate change effects on ocean biogeochemistry
  Dr S Henson, Dr A Hickman
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human-induced climate change is expected to affect ocean biogeochemistry through increasing temperature, ocean acidification and deoxygenation.
  Not just going with the flow: does biological production rather than deep water formation drive the Southern Ocean carbon sink?
  Dr P Brown, Prof A Naveira-Garabato, Dr N Briggs
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Southern Ocean (SO) is thought to have absorbed ~40% of all global human-derived (anthropogenic) carbon dioxide and >75% of anthropogenic heat, thus being disproportionately influential in mitigating increasing atmospheric CO2 levels and related climate effects.
  The Taphonomy of Archaeological Molecular Biomarkers
  Prof A.W Pike, Prof G S Attard, Dr S Bray
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Molecular biomarkers have the potential to reveal archaeologically invisible aspects of the past.
