Major Asian river basins arising from the Tibetan Plateau are highly dependent on water resources for food security, employment in agricultural industries.
  ONE Planet DTP - Extreme events and mechanisms of flood generation under climate change (Ref: OP20262).
  Prof Stewart Franks
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Description. Flood events cause major disruption and socio-economic impacts and with expectations of future climate change, optimally managing such events becomes increasingly imperative.
  NERC GW4+ DTP PhD studentship: Linking large-scale oceanic and atmospheric forcings to local scale flooding via machine learning
  Dr T Kjeldsen
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  Elimination at Source of Biocidal Agents from Fresh Water Environments by TiO2 Photocatalysis
  Dr C Pestana, Prof L Lawton, Dr B R Petrie
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Herbicides and pesticides (i.e. biocides) are widely used world-wide. Many biocidal agents are persistent in the freshwater environment and are on the EU watchlist for priority and priority hazardous substances, as well as the Scottish Environmental Protection Agencies risk matrix for contaminants in surface waters.
  Future-Proofing Scotland’s Water Security: Delivering Safe and Resilient Water Supplies
  Dr M Glendell, Dr S Halliday, Dr P Ovando Pol, Dr L Avery
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project represents an exciting opportunity to make a difference and help Scotland to adapt to climate change by addressing critical questions of water security within a multi-disciplinary framework.
  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.
