  Linking Microbial Physiology with Carbon Transformations in Peatlands Under Land Use Change
  Dr A Malik, Dr R Andersen, Dr R Artz, Prof J Smith
Application Deadline: 9 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Significant amount of carbon is stored in soils, particularly in peatlands. Increasing food and energy needs have led to intensive land use practices that deplete soil organic carbon (SOC) stores.
  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.
  High Power Renewable Energy Nano Catalysis – Fundamental and Applied Electrochemistry
  Prof A Schechter
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The development of a low-cost, high-performance fuel cell is hindered by the lack of an active and electrocatalysts at the anode and cathode.
  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.
  The mysterious microbial ecosystem beneath our feet: Unravelling the groundwater microbiology archive
  Mr J Sorensen
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This FRESH CDT project aims to provide the first overview of the UK’s groundwater microbial ecosystem. Groundwater constitutes 99% of all accessible freshwater on the planet and is a vital resource for public water supply in the UK.
  Development of robust inhalation simulation procedures for measuring exposure to potentially harmful elements from soil particulates
  Dr J Wraggs, Dr K T Semple
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human exposure to soil-dust can be climate driven in that airborne particulates can be transported (and deposited great distances from the point of origin) through the atmosphere by weather and climatic patterns.
  Understanding current and future impacts of public water supply on macronutrient cycles around the world
  Mr M Ascott, Dr B Surridge
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Globally, huge investment is made in infrastructure to obtain, process and distribute clean water to human society. These public water supply (PWS) processes also alter the movement of a wide range of chemical elements within the Earth system.
  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.
  Reliable hydrological prediction under climate change
  Dr Y Fan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change due to anthropogenic activity are causing amounts of effect on our planet. One of the major concerns are related to the changes of water resources in future.
  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.
