  NERC GW4+ DTP CASE studentship: Recycling and degradation scope of anhydride-epoxide co-polymers
  Dr B Ward, Dr A Paul
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The demand for plastics is vast, with 348 million tonnes being produced in 2017 alone,1 and the trend for plastic production is increasing exponentially year-on-year.
  CO2 weathering of glacial till as nutrient source for Cryogenian biospheric oxygenation 720-635 million years ago (CO2-CryoBiophere)
  Dr E Chi Fru, Dr AC Smith, Dr E Bagshaw
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Background. It has been suggested that the release of glacial flour phosphate to the Neoproterozoic Ocean, 712-635 million years (Myr) ago, stimulated the Neoproterozoic Oxygenation Event (NOE) and emergence of photosynthetic eukaryotic algae to prominence.
  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.
  Microbial survival and activity in bentonite clay: relevance to the safety case for geological disposal of radioactive waste
  Dr H Sass, Dr S Gregory
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Background. The disposal of radioactive waste in geological disposal facilities (GDF) deep underground is being planned by several countries including the UK.
  Squeeze and mingle: understanding the role of deformation-driven melt transport in mid-ocean ridge magma chambers (Bay of Islands ophiolite, Newfoundland, Canada)
  Prof C MacLeod, Dr J Bedard, Dr C J Lissenberg, Dr I Parkinson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Background. We now realise our conceptual view of magma chambers as large melt bodies is outmoded. that they are instead predominantly melt-poor crystal mushes1.
  The influence of biogeochemistry and microbiology on Antarctic ice shelves
  Dr E Bagshaw, Dr A Jungblut, Prof I Hawes, Prof J L Wadham
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Background. Predicting the future behaviour of ice shelves is critical for understanding how Antarctica will respond to climate warming.
  Tracking radionuclide pollution
  Dr M Andersen, Dr D Richards
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Background. Pollution by anthropogenic radionuclides is ubiquitous in the environment. In particular, Wales and the southwest of England have experienced the legacy of the atomic age from the spread of toxic radionuclides from a range of now-decommissioned nuclear power plants (e.g.
  Understanding battery chemistry with in-situ electron microscopy
  Dr A W Robertson, Prof P G Bruce
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lithium-ion batteries have revolutionised the way we think of energy storage, allowing for powerful devices that fit the palm of our hands, and massive battery arrays to supplement intermittent renewables.
  KESS2 Scholarship: Climate hardening of tree saplings for outdoor planting.
  Dr D Gwynn-Jones
Application Deadline: 22 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

A major economic barrier to establishing spruce propagation is the high level of mortality incurred when transplanting juvenile tree saplings from the glasshouse or field back into the field environment.
  Envision NERC DTP

Funding Type

PhD Type

Envision brings together a powerful group of UK researchers with 44 industry and NGO partners to provide a new generation of environmental scientists with the skills, knowledge and experience they need to take on the challenges of a changing world.
