  [EPSRC - iCASE] Microbe – radionuclide interactions in legacy nuclear waste systems
  Prof J Lloyd, Prof K Morris, Prof S Shaw, Dr L Natrajan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent work in the Geomicrobiology Group at the University of Manchester has shown that microorganisms can have a controlling impact on the speciation (and hence mobility) of key radionuclides in a broad range of natural and engineered systems.
  Investigating the Causal Biological Effects on Microbial Induced Corrosion (MIC) Occurring Within Components of Advanced Maritime Systems
  Dr B Connolly
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a full time PhD studentship in the Department of Materials at the University of Manchester. The project is supported by BAE Systems, who will provide both industrial supervision, access to research facilities and secondments during the studentship.
  Reed Bed Use Within Scotch Whisky Distilleries to Treat Wastewater: A New Toolkit to Help Maximise Performance
  Dr M Taggart, Dr B Morrissey, Dr L Maricello, Dr P Gaffney
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The demand for ‘greener’ wastewater treatment (WWT) is increasing globally. In particular, there is a need for more sustainable ‘passive’ approaches that do not rely so heavily (if at all) on hard engineering and continuous energy and chemical intervention/inputs.
  QUADRAT DTP: Unravelling the freshwater microbial phosphorus cycle
  Prof J Mcgrath, Dr C Gubry-Rangin, Dr J Chin, Dr B Spears
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Eutrophication of freshwater environments via anthropogenic phosphorus (P) input is one of the most serious global water management issues.
  The management of marine plastics
  Prof Paul Lant, Prof B Laycock
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plastics pollution in our oceans is a wicked problem.
  Tracking carbon and nitrogen fixing organisms in the oceanic microbiome
  Dr T Bibby, Dr P Lam, Prof W Huang
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Complex marine microbial communities catalyze global cycling of carbon and nitrogen that regulate the Earth’s climate.

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Science and Solutions for a Changing Planet (SSCP) Doctoral Training Partnership integrates six host partners and a number of business and policy sector partners, to offer an exciting programme that trains and inspires the next generation of environmental experts and leaders to tackle some of the toughest challenges of our time.
  Closing loopholes in the nitrogen cycle: Nitrification now and in the future
  Dr A Yool, Prof T Tyrrell, Dr A Martin, Prof N Bates
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Nitrification ( oxidation) of ammonia (NH3) back to nitrate (NO3-) is an important regenerative step in the nitrogen cycles of both marine and terrestrial systems.

  Dr J Sumner, Dr N Simms
Application Deadline: 15 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sponsored by EPSRC and Siemens Industrial Turbomachinery, this studentship will provide a bursary of up to £18,000 (tax free) plus fees* for four years.
  Molecular Modeling for Design of Biochar Materials
  Dr V Erastova
Application Deadline: 9 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project brings molecular modeling into biochar research, providing atomistic details to the key properties of biochar, and through this enabling the informed design and optimization of biochar for desirable functionality.
  Mapping sustainable biomass heating pathways for heat decarbonisation
  Dr T Somorin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Heat is the biggest form of energy use in the UK, accounting for more than 85% of the energy use in the domestic and industrial sectors.
  QUADRAT DTP: Chronology and Changing Cultures on the Mongolian Steppe
  Dr J Wright, Prof P Reimer
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

  Dr M Montero-Calasanz
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

2.2 million tonnes of topsoil is eroded annually in the UK and over 17% of arable land show signs of degradation (Fig.1). Reversing soil degradation and restoring fertility by 2030 is an aim of the government’s 25 Year Environment Plan but there are insufficient data on the health of UK soils.
