  Earthquake-proofing of a new well stimulation technology
  Dr S Pytharouli
Application Deadline: 16 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project looks into the short and long-term impact that an emerging technology for well stimulation (pulsed injection) has on the rock and subsurface relative to induced seismicity.
  Isotope fractionation as a tool for evaluating the behaviour of Cd and Zn in contaminated soils
  Research Group: Environmental and Isotope Geochemistry Group
  Prof M Komárek
Application Deadline: 15 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The use of Cd and Zn isotopes is a powerful and novel tool for tracing the fate of these pollutants in the environment.
  Reducing the negative impact of agricultural drought by applying biochar to soil
  Research Group: Environmental and Isotope Geochemistry Group
  Dr L Trakal, Dr VS Sipek, Assoc Prof MP Pohorely
Application Deadline: 15 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This topic offers a multidisciplinary solution to currently highlighted issues such as drought, sustainable agriculture, limitation of nutrient leakage from soil, and also reducing CO2 emissions into the air.
  Revisiting the use of sewage sludge in agriculture and the role of emerging pollutants
  Research Group: Environmental and Isotope Geochemistry Group
  Assoc Prof M Vítková, Prof M Komárek
Application Deadline: 15 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sewage sludge has been commonly used for improving the nutrient status of agricultural soils. The development of various advanced analytial techniques has identified new risks associated with the so-called "emerging pollutants".
  The use of infested wood by bark beetle as a source for the production of biochar
  Research Group: Environmental and Isotope Geochemistry Group
  Dr L Trakal, Prof MS Svoboda, Assoc Prof MP Pohorely
Application Deadline: 15 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The use of infested wood by bark beetle as a source for the production of biochar and its subsequent re-use in the context of drought solution during newly established forest nurseries and clear-cuts.
  The use of nano zerovalent Fe for soil remediation - geochemical and toxicological approach
  Research Group: Environmental and Isotope Geochemistry Group
  Prof M Komárek
Application Deadline: 15 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Besides other fields, engineered nanoparticles are becoming perspective materials in environmental management, either through prevention or treatment and remediation of contaminated sites.
  Vineyard treatment using co-composted biochar in order to increase its soil retention capacity
  Research Group: Environmental and Isotope Geochemistry Group
  Dr L Trakal, Dr MH Hendrychova, Assoc Prof MP Pohorely
Application Deadline: 15 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim is to use compost with already proven and tested biochar for use in vineyards previously affected by drought. Specifically, the experiment will take place in a vineyard created as part of the reclamation of the brown coal dump near the city of Most.
  Sticky biomolecules - from sediments to astrobiology
  Dr D Benoit
Application Deadline: 20 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Adhesion of biological material to igneous rocks and silicates is still a poorly understood phenomenon at a molecular level. Yet such information is crucial in many domains where biological material comes into contact with rocky formations.
  Meltwater Ice-Sheet interactions and the changing climate of Greenland
  Dr A Leeson
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Greenland Ice Sheet (GrIS) is shrinking as Earth’s climate warms. In fact, meltwater which runs off the ice sheet is expected to contribute ~10 cm to global sea level by 2100.
  Sun drenched or sun starved: Evaluating climate and ecosystem impacts of solar energy development
  Dr A Armstrong
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The rationale. Decarbonisation of energy supplies to mitigate climate change is triggering notable land take across the world. Land-use change is the greatest driver of decline in nature and therefore, such decisions risk trading global-scale climate change for local-scale ecosystem degradation.
