  Global Hg modelling to test scenarios and Hg reduction strategies.
  Dr N Pirrone
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

To develop modelling tools to simulate emission scenarios reflecting future Hg reduction policies on a global scale. To evaluate the impact of global emission changes in Europe.
  Modelling methylation and bio-accumulation of Hg in the marine environment.
  Dr C Schrum
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

To generate a better understanding of methylation and bio-accumulation of Hg in the marine environment and implement this into parametrizations for 3D oceanic ecosystem models; to enhance our understanding of Hg accumulation in the food chain; to improve the regional ocean-ecosystem model MECOSMO and its validation with new observational data.
  New experimental constraints on atmospheric Hg red-ox reactions.
  Dr M Horvat
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The main objective is to understand aqueous Hg red-ox mechanisms and rates from an experimental perspective.
  Understanding atmospheric Hg redox transformations from novel field observations and 3D atmospheric Hg models.
  Dr Aurelien Dommergue
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Atmospheric oxidation of the dominant emitted Hg(0) form is a key process whereby Hg from natural and anthropogenic sources is converted to more soluble and reactive Hg(II) species that will be deposited to ecosystems.
  Sexual differences in insect longevity: experimental and meta-analytic approaches
  Research Group: Insect Ecology Group
  Dr MK Knapp
Application Deadline: 15 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Requirements. The candidate should have a strong background in evolutionary biology and/or insect life histories, have experience in R language (knowledge on meta-analytic tools are welcome), have at least basic experience with laboratory rearing of insects and be fluent in English.
  EPSRC PhD studentship in: Managing biofilms and disinfection residuals to protecting drinking water safety
  Prof J Boxall, Dr K Fish, Prof V Speight
Application Deadline: 17 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A partnership between The University of Sheffield, Sheffield Water Centre and Scottish Water, as part of the Water Infrastructure and Resilience EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training.
  CO2 catalytic conversion into fuels and fuel-precursors using biomass-derived H-donors - LEVERHULME
  Dr I Graca, Dr C Fernandez-Martin
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This experimental project will deal with the global challenge of mitigating CO2 emissions to the atmosphere, by using CO2 as a raw-material to produce fuels and fuel-precursors.
  Mate choice, and mate choice copying in cuttlefish
  Research Group: Behavioural Ecology Research Group (BEEC)
  Dr G Cooke, Dr S Mowles
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. Behavioural Ecology Research Group (BEEC) - https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-engineering/research/institutes-and-groups/behavioural-ecology.
  Multivariate flood risk analysis under uncertainty and nonstationarity
  Dr Y Fan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Flood risk inference would generally be influenced by a number of factors (e.g. data availability, model selection), which lead to extensive uncertainty in risk inferences.
  Global Cd and Pb signal in the Pan-Arctic - Influence of local and distant sources
  Research Group: Environmental and Isotope Geochemistry Group
  Prof V Chrastný, Prof M Komárek
Application Deadline: 15 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project, we propose to define Cd, Pb isotope signals dominating in the Northern Hemisphere and its historical development.
  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.
  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 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.
  Hydrological and climate variability research
  Dr M Hanel, Dr I Markonis, Dr P Maca
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Hydrological and Climate Variability Research Group of the Czech University of Life Sciences Prague (Faculty of Environmental Sciences) seeks a PhD student.
  Functional nanoparticles for plant systems (EPS2020/37)
  Dr HHP Yiu
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is aimed to develop nanoparticle-based reagent for delivery of bioactive molecules to plants. Food shortage is likely to be a major concern in the next decade if the global population grows at the current rate.
