  ONE Planet DTP - Sustainable Water Management in Water-Scarce Drylands (Ref: OP202036)
  Dr D Motta
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Water scarcity and depletion of renewable water resources is a growing humanitarian and environmental threat, partly connected to global warming, but also to water mismanagement and overexploitation, as well as drastic landscape modification.
  GW4 FRESH CDT PhD Studentship: Chlorine reduction wetlands
  Dr J Wenk
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Centre for Doctoral Training in Freshwater Biosciences and Sustainability (GW4 FRESH CDT) which is offering up to 14 studentships to start in September 2020.
  Facilitating the circular economy in India’s food security: the social, economic and agronomic barriers and opportunities of wastewater
  Dr K V Heal, Dr A Gathorne-Hardy, Dr H Gorringe
Application Deadline: 9 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project summary. This interdisciplinary project combines environmental and social science to quantify the potential benefits of wastewater for Indian agriculture, as well as understanding the social barriers to wastewater use, and identifying opportunities to overcome these.
  QUADRAT DTP CASE: Environmental Impacts of Offshore Wind Turbines: A life cycle assessment of Bottom-fixed versus Floating Wind Turbine Concepts
  Dr A Hastings, Dr M Karimirad
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Laws enacted by the UK and devolved administration mandates achieving net-zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2050. Floating offshore wind is a key technology to decarbonize electricity generation as the sites available for fixed structures are limited.
  Evaluating the Resilience of Scottish Peatlands to Droughts for Water Quality and Water Supply in the Flow Country
  Dr J Yeluripati, Dr R Andersen, Dr M Glendell, Dr R Artz
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

  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.
  Earth observation for sustainable sugarcane production
  Dr D Simms, Dr P Burgess
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sugarcane production must address the challenge between the need to increase crop production and improve labour productivity whilst improving the efficiency of water and fertiliser use (Hess et al, 2016).
