  QUADRAT DTP: Environment, Diet and Oral Health in Early Historic Ireland and Scotland
  Prof M Oxenham, Prof E Murphy
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The environment in general, and climate in particular, are at times a catalyst for human resilience and adaptation. Notwithstanding, environmental and climatic variability can also have catastrophic effects for human health.
  Drought impacts on forest carbon and water balance in the UK – will forests thrive or fail under global change?
  Prof M Williams
Application Deadline: 9 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

What are the impacts of drought on future forest ecosystem processes? The research will investigate carbon-water interactions at two intensive study sites in the UK, and use modelling to forecast the state of UK forests under climate change.
  Microanalysis of natural and engineered CO2 mineralisation at CarbFix2 site, Iceland
  Dr S. Gilfillan, Prof S Haszeldine, Dr F Fusseis
Application Deadline: 9 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Summary. You will apply geochemical microanalysis and 4D micro tomographic imaging techniques and to provide an understating of how CO2 was naturally mineralised at the CarbFix2 site in Iceland.
  E4 DTP is Edinburgh Earth, Ecology and Environment

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fully funded PhD projects addressing the most exciting. and important questions in Environmental Science.
  Economic and environmental efficiency of food redistribution
  Dr P Alexander
Application Deadline: 9 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Summary. The project will identify drivers of change to and map the UK food redistribution system, assess its economic and environmental efficiency, and design optimal alternative food redistribution systems.
  Our Place Our Future: Developing and testing an integrated climate risk framework for heritage sites in Scotland.
  Dr K Crowley
Application Deadline: 9 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change is not only threatening our future but destroying our past. Working with Historic Environment Scotland (HES) this project will examine the impacts to heritage sites in Scotland under future extreme climate risk scenarios.
  QUADRAT DTP CASE: Sustainable Resilience to Coastal Erosion: Innovative Approaches to Protection of Assets Along Coastlines at Risk
  Dr D Green, Prof J McKinley
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

All coastlines are subject to dynamic change through wave and wind action resulting in significant loss or gain of land through erosion and/or accretion.
  QUADRAT DTP CASE: The interaction between carbonates, igneous intrusions and CO2 in the ocean system
  Dr D Muirhead, Dr K O'Driscoll
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Contact metamorphism of carbonaceous sedimentary rocks can lead to the release of significant volumes of gases, particularly CO2 and related fluids.
  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: Chronology and Changing Cultures on the Mongolian Steppe
  Dr J Wright, Prof P Reimer
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Learn state of the art chronological tools in one of the most dynamic archaeological environments in Asia. Aims. Mongolia has been the most rapidly developing archaeological territory in Eastern Eurasia.
  QUADRAT DTP: Climate change impacts on seasonal water storage and flow: implications for environmental management
  Dr J Geris, Dr D Mullan
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Catchment water storage is one of the most important functions controlling water availability and streamflow. Where and when water is stored and how different ’stores’ (e.g.
  QUADRAT DTP: Co-evolution of Earth and Life: are land plants good for coral reefs?
  Dr A Brasier, Dr J Sigwart
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

For the first four billion years of its history, the Earth was a fundamentally different planet to that which we know today. the only green covering on land (if any) was provided by mats of microbes.
  QUADRAT DTP: Environmental ancient DNA analysis of Lateglacial and Early Holocene contexts in Ireland and Scotland
  Dr L Girdland Flink, Dr G Plunkett
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to refine our understanding of Lateglacial and Early Holocene biodiversity and ecosystems in Scotland and Ireland using ancient DNA extracted from ancient sediments (sedimentary ancient DNA, or sedaDNA).
  QUADRAT DTP: Improved pattern recognition in environmental signals using machine learning
  Dr A Gilligan, Dr M Karimirad
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The identification of patterns in, and the classification of, different types of environmental signals is crucial for understanding the processes that generate them.
  QUADRAT DTP: Mitigating the impacts of environmental change on cultural heritage using drone-based survey techniques
  Dr G Noble, Dr P Gleeson
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

With the increasing effects of climate change, archaeological sites in coastal regions are increasingly under threat by coastal or fluvial erosion, melting permafrost or rising sea levels (Masselink and Russell 2013).
