  Antibiotics removal from wastewater using microalgae
  Dr A Escudero, Dr J Roberts, Dr C Hunter
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCEBE-19-020. The ability of disease causing and other bacteria to render current antibiotics ineffective due to acquiring antibiotic resistance (AMR) is predicted to kill 10 million people every year by 2050 without action.
  Volcanic ash, soil development and resilience in a changing climate: a case study from Montserrat (BARCLAYUENV20ARIES)
  Prof J Barclay, Dr B Reid, Dr T Armijos, Dr M Cave
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a volcanic island in possession of some ash must become extremely fertile.
  Novel Approaches to Engaging Land Managers in Monitoring the Impact of Agri-Environment-Climate Schemes
  Dr K Prager, Prof S Redpath
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Agri-environment-climate schemes (AECS) are a voluntary policy mechanism to incentivise and compensate farmers for undertaking environmental measures as part of their land management.
  People centred risk and well-being engagement and communication transitions in fragile neighbourhoods (Advert Reference: FAC19/EE/GES/COLLINS)
  Prof A Collins
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

In association with the GCRF urban risk transitions hub, ‘Tomorrow’s Cities’ and the Disaster and Development Network (DDN) of the Department of Geography and Environmental Sciences, this study will develop an area of focussed inquiry around action data and engagement processes that address multi-hazard risk reduction.

  Salt marsh resilience in Chingming Eco-Island, China
  Dr N Leonardi, Dr X Mei
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The goal of the proposed research is to evaluate the resilience of coastal wetlands to sea level rise over multiple time scales and under the compound action of typhoons activity and sea level rise by combining numerical modelling and field work activities on the Chingming Eco-Island, China.
  Genetic rescue and the conservation of small populations (SPURGINUBIO20ARIES)
  Dr L Spurgin, Prof M Gage, Dr J Gilroy
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This studentship will address the question of whether small populations can be “genetically rescued”. The student will carry out replicated and controlled genetic rescue experiments to determine the extent and conditions under which immigration improves population performance in the wild.
