Typically, about 20% of the UK’s electricity is supplied from nuclear power-stations [http://gridwatch.co.uk/] which are operated by EDF.
  SCENARIO - Developing an urban canopy model for improved weather forecasts in cities
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Prof J Barlow, Dr O Coceal, Dr M Carpentieri
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most of the world’s population now experiences an urban version of weather extremes and climate change. Accurate forecasting of weather and air quality in cities relies on correctly representing the physics of turbulent exchange between the surface and the overlying atmosphere.
  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.
  Magnetic molecular imprinted polymers (MMIP) for detecting biohazard pollutants (EPS2020/35)
  Dr HHP Yiu
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is aimed to develop MMIP for binding and detecting harmful biomolecules in the environment. Biohazard pollutants are health concerns but they are usually at a very low concentration that many conventional monitoring techniques are inefficient.
