  Processing and fluxes of DOM in peat-pools and lochans
  Dr P Gilbert, Dr D Mayor
Application Deadline: 13 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Peatlands are the UKs largest carbon store, yet they have been largely degraded by poor land management. Combined with predicted increased likelihood of extreme weather events (e.g.
  Process Design for Efficient Metal Extraction from Concentrates (CENTA2-CHEM5-ABBO)
  Prof A P Abbott, Dr GRT Jenkin
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Traditional ore processing is generally carried out using either hydrometallurgy (high cost, low volume, reasonable selectivity) or pyrometallurgy (lower cost, high volume, low selectivity).
  How will climate change affect organic matter exported from peat?
  Dr C Moody, Prof P Chapman
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Peatlands cover only 2.8% of the Earth but store 50% of the global soil carbon pool which exceeds the carbon stored in all other vegetation types, including the worlds’ forest.
  Understanding the new environmental risks posed by pollution from the digital economy
  Dr I Burke, Dr R Newton
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.
  Investigating the North America/South America plate boundary with marine geophysical data
  Dr T Henstock, Prof J Collier, Prof T Minshull
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Continental plates are well-known to deform over broad areas but oceanic plates are often thought of as rigid blocks with narrow boundaries.
  Coupling shell growth and geochemistry in giant clams to explore biomineralization pathways
  Dr S Sosdian, Dr K Johnson, Dr D Muir, Dr E John
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.
  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.
  Emerging application of gas plasma technologies
  Dr F Iza
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gas plasmas generate reactive environments at low temperature that can trigger chemical and bio-chemical processes that are hard to initiate by other means.
  ONE Planet DTP - A new 3D hydrogeological dataset for the UK to drive projections of hydrological extremes under climate change (OP20296)
  Dr E Lewis
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Physically based (PB) hydrological models are essential for flood and water resources management under changing climate and land use patterns.
  ONE Planet DTP - Ocean wave field and climate monitoring with a GNSS Wave Glider (OP20292)
  Dr N Penna
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ocean wave field monitoring is needed for climatology, as it controls the input of wind stress into the oceanic mixed layer and thereby serves as a control for the global ocean climate.
  ONE Planet DTP - Quantifying absorbing and scattering properties of atmospheric aerosol using machine learning and deep learning algorithms (OP20267)
  Dr T Carruthers
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Aerosol can strongly absorb and scatter light depending on their physico-chemical properties. Quantifying aerosol-light interaction is vital for evaluating the aerosol contribution to radiative forcing (warming and cooling effect) on the atmosphere that influences global warming.
  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.
  Soil Compaction – Evaluating effects of remediation strategies on soil, nutrients, plants and water
  Prof O Schmidt, Dr D Wall, Dr S Tracy, Dr O Fenton
Application Deadline: 20 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

BACKGROUND. Soil compaction is one of the biggest threats for agricultural soils in Ireland due to intensification of animal production systems and larger and heavier machinery operations.
  Hot stuff? Evaluating the human exposure hazard presented by land contaminated with organic flame retardants
  Dr M Abdallah, Prof S J Harrad, Dr C Vane
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

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.
  Assessing the impact of peatland restoration on freshwater ecosystems
  Dr C Bryce, Prof P Johnes, Prof R Pancost
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Decades of degradation have turned the UK’s peatlands from sinks to sources of organic carbon, with adverse consequences for adjacent freshwater ecosystems.
