  Global Hg modelling to test scenarios and Hg reduction strategies.
  Dr N Pirrone
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

To develop modelling tools to simulate emission scenarios reflecting future Hg reduction policies on a global scale. To evaluate the impact of global emission changes in Europe.
  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.
  QUADRAT DTP: Automated soil profiling: identification of soil characteristics using Machine Learning and image analysis
  Dr Q Gan, Prof J McKinley
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Soil properties, such as porosity, bulk density, soil water contact are subjected to change due to complex interacting process, including physical, chemical and biological process.
  QUADRAT DTP: Development of artificial reefs: design, scientific monitoring, environment impact and management in North/Irish Seas
  Prof F Kuepper, Dr M Sonebi
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

With the population growth along coastlines the demand of infrastructure for various societal needs such as transportation (ports), energies (pipelines…
  Multivariate flood risk analysis under uncertainty and nonstationarity
  Dr Y Fan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Flood risk inference would generally be influenced by a number of factors (e.g. data availability, model selection), which lead to extensive uncertainty in risk inferences.
  Biorefining of seafood processing waste (EPS2020/46)
  Dr S R Euston
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Waste from the processing of fish or shellfish contains a range of valuable co-products (including proteins, oil, carotenoids, carbohydrates and minerals).
  Design of multifunctional Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs)-based materials for carbon capture and photocatalytic conversion (EPS2020/51)
  Dr S Garcia
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project aims to design novel multifunctional materials that can capture carbon and convert it to a valuable chemical or fuel.
  Flow in porous media (EPS2020/48)
  Prof M Maroto-Valer
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Reactive flow in porous media (experimental studies and/or numerical simulations) of manufactures porous replicas.
  Model development and simulation of novel processes for CO2 direct air capture from the atmosphere (EPS2020/32)
  Assoc Prof M.W. van der Spek
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mathematical/numerical modelling of cyclic adsorption-desorption processes for direct air capture of CO2. Process design and simulation.
  Modelling growth, deposition and breakage of dynamic particle structures (EPS2020/52)
  Dr V Francia
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Investigation of the structure of cohesive powders under various flow regimes. Combining AI driven tools with state-of-the-art computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and discrete element methods (DEM), we will look into how dynamic particle structures form in complex systems.
  Process-informed design of materials for carbon capture (EPS2020/50)
  Dr S Garcia
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project aims to integrate the design of novel materials with process design for energy-efficient carbon capture processes. Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage (CCUS) is a key technology for achieving the global emissions reduction targets because of its role in power and industrial decarbonization.
  Smart Local Energy Systems (EPS2020/47)
  Prof M Maroto-Valer
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project focuses on system level scale-up of smart local energy systems. Smart local energy systems (SLES) are deployed effectively at local scales to improve efficiency and to deal with variability and differences of supply and demand.
  ONE Planet - Data-Centric Management Strategies for Fish Ecology in Scotland (OP20204)
  Dr C Oates
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Scottish Environmental Protection Agency (SEPA) liaises with operators and owners of legacy assets to improve the ecological continuity of the river network in Scotland.
  Joint PhD with RWTH Aachen: Life cycle sustainability assessment of office buildings, from smart to sustainable
  Assoc Prof R Crawford, Prof M Traverso
Application Deadline: 20 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

To reduce energy demand associated with the building sector, the major focus has been on improving the energy efficiency of the building operational phase.
  Testing environment filters as mechanisms of ecosystem resilience to non-native species invasion
  Dr A Knights, Prof D Bilton
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the midst of Earth’s sixth mass extinction event, non-native species (NNS) are driving declines in imperilled species’ and ecosystem services.
