  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.
  Characterisation and design of heterogeneous catalysts for the petrochemical industry
  Dr M Conte
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The development of novel catalysts for selective oxidation reactions is an area of decisive importance for both industry and academia.
  Development and synthesis of zeolites for the conversion of sugars to biofuels and environmental applications
  Dr M Conte
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A promising strategy to replace non-renewable fuel sources, as raw material for energy applications, is to convert renewable biomass into transportation fuels and value-added chemicals.
  Control of organic gels for tailored applications
  Dr A Fletcher, Dr P Mulheran
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Organic gels are widely used in industry and on the laboratory scale to produce materials for a variety of applications in energy and nanomaterials.
  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.
  Multidisciplinary PhD Programme (3.5 years) Centre for Sustainable Chemical Technologies

Funding Type

PhD Type

Multidisciplinary PhD Programme (3.5 years). Centre for Sustainable Chemical Technologies. The Centre for Sustainable Chemical Technologies at the University of Bath is now accepting applications for the October 2019 intake.
  Do microplastics enhance marine trace gas production? (HOPKINSUPML20ARIES)
  Dr F Hopkins, Dr G Malin, Dr P Lindeque, Prof P Liss
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND. Marine plastic pollution can now be found throughout the world’s oceans, from the remote polar seas to the deepest depths, and there is great concern about the potential effects on the marine environment.
  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.
  Novel microprobes for the geochemical gradients in diffusive boundary layers around marine calcifiers
  Dr G Denault, Prof G Foster, Prof P Smith
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Diffusive boundary layers are common between any two media, e.g. at the sediment-water interface. Indeed, marine organisms, like corals and foraminifera, sense their environment through micron-scale diffusive boundary layers (DBL).
  Synthesis of New Metal-Oxo Cluster Molecules for Photocatalysis
  Dr S Pike
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

One PhD studentship funded by The Royal Society (with stipendiary support for four years) is available for a talented researcher with an interest in Inorganic Chemistry.
