  Bridging the gap between environment and health – exposure assessment of potentially harmful agents in soil
  Dr P Hooda
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our current understanding of soil exposure in the UK population is extremely limited. The current risk assessment paradigm makes large assumptions based on very uncertain data to estimate direct exposures via soil ingestion or dust inhalation.
  Radionuclides in soils in urban regions.
  Prof G Gillmore, Dr P Hooda
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD concerns the collection, analysis and health impact assessment of soil geochemical data in order to.
  Impact of micro-karstic flow on Chalk aquifer function and water quality
  Dr J West, Prof S Bottrell
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Highlights and Novelty. Opportunity for investigating the impacts of contaminants on water quality and security. Investigation of one of the world’s most important aquifers, the Cretaceous Chalk.
  Volume changes during diagenesis and metamorphism: where are they?
  Prof J Wheeler, Dr E Mariani
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is gain new insights into where and how volume changes are manifest. When a chemical environment induces growth of new minerals, they may in theory have different volumes to the existing minerals.
  Numerical and experimental investigations of compressive behaviour of FRP-confined waste-containing concrete columns
  Dr G Gong, Dr J Xia, Dr L Di Sarno
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Prosperous construction industry causes enormous carbon-dioxide emission and demolished building wastes which have significant negative environmental impacts.
  Sustaining partnership approaches – evaluating effectiveness, health and longevity of agri-environmental collaboratives
  Dr K Prager, Dr T Potts
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A multitude of partnerships have developed between actors from the farming, environment, conservation, community, business and government sectors.
  The Significance of Macroalgal Detritus for Marine Food Webs and Blue-Carbon Sequestration
  Prof U Witte, Dr P Smith
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Marine plants draw down CO2, and in a world of rising atmospheric CO2 levels carbon sinks in vegetated coastal ecosystems can sequester CO2 on geological time scales and are now referred to as ‘Blue Carbon’.
  Transmission of HEV: risk from the environment and waste water in Scotland
  Dr C Hunter, Dr C Crossan, Prof L Scobie
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCEBE-19-027. In Scotland, the number of Hepatitis E virus (HEV) infections are increasing yearly, since 2011 laboratory confirmed cases have increased 15-fold.

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Science and Solutions for a Changing Planet (SSCP) Doctoral Training Partnership integrates six host partners and a number of business and policy sector partners, to offer an exciting programme that trains and inspires the next generation of environmental experts and leaders to tackle some of the toughest challenges of our time.
  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.
