  Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Sustainable Production of Chemicals and Materials

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University of Aberdeen has been awarded over £1million in funding to establish a centre that will train a new generation of researchers to develop technologies that convert organic waste into sustainable materials.
  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.
  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.
  QUADRAT DTP CASE: Environmental Impacts of Offshore Wind Turbines: A life cycle assessment of Bottom-fixed versus Floating Wind Turbine Concepts
  Dr A Hastings, Dr M Karimirad
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Laws enacted by the UK and devolved administration mandates achieving net-zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2050. Floating offshore wind is a key technology to decarbonize electricity generation as the sites available for fixed structures are limited.
  QUADRAT DTP CASE: Is a trophic cascade framework useful for predicting the outcome of rewilding in plantation forests?
  Prof X Lambin, Dr P Caplat
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Rewilding is a novel approach to conservation that captures the public’s imagination and focuses on ecosystem processes rather than necessarily restoring a system to its antecedent state.
  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 CASE: Waste to Land - Differential priming of soil carbon driven by additions of organic wastes
  Dr L Mbadugha, Dr P Williams
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The application of organic wastes (from food and agricultural residues) to land is becoming an increasingly popular method of waste management, on both national and international scale.
  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: Current and past ecology of dynamic seasonal salt lakes and their responses to climate change
  Dr V Louca, Dr H Roe
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The eastern Mediterranean region has been experiencing the most severe, long-term drought as a percentage reduction in rainfall, than any other region in the world and climate models predict this to continue.
  QUADRAT DTP: Do plant communities manipulate soil for drought resistance?
  Prof P Hallett, Prof M Emmerson
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants have differing abilities to engineer soil to make them more productive and stable under stress, but the mechanisms that underpin processes remain poorly understood, despite their significance to soil sustainability, food security and climate change.
  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.
