  Co-benefits of a Low Carbon Economy: Improved Air Quality and Reduced Global Warming
  Dr JB McQuaid, Prof D Marsh
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

According to the World Health Organization, it is estimated that air pollution kills approximately 7 million people worldwide, and 90% of the population breath air with high levels of pollutants.
  Effect of sediment and groundwater flow heterogeneity on accurately modelling radionuclide transport at UK nuclear sites
  Dr I Burke
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The UK Nuclear Decommissioning Authority oversees the removal of buildings and radioactive wastes present at UK nuclear sites.
  Exploring the Biophysical Constraints and the Socio-Economic Implications of a Global Transition to Renewable Energy Systems
  Dr P Brockway, Prof P Taylor, Dr L Brand Correa
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Concerns have been raised that declining energy return on energy investment (EROI) from fossil fuels, and low levels of EROI for alternative energy sources, could constrain the ability of national economies to continue to deliver economic growth and improvements in social wellbeing while undertaking a low-carbon transition.
  Ice speed & Artificial Intelligence (AI): Using satellite data and advanced computer techniques to detect ice sheet change
  Dr A Hogg
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project offers an exciting opportunity to work at the interface of climate and space science, making an important contribution to international efforts to study the effects and impact of climate change.
  Incorporation of contaminant metals into waste derived nanoparticles
  Dr I Burke, Dr A P Brown
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Introduction and rationale. The production and refinement of metals ores produces a multitude of heterogeneous wastes (e.g. during steel manufacturing, aluminium extraction and chromium ore processing).
  Landslide nowcasting using advanced data analytics
  Dr A Abellan, Dr B Murphy, Prof T Wright
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The fast proliferation of new satellite, aerial and terrestrial remote sensing techniques has provided new technological and scientific opportunities to investigate geohazards during the last decade.
  Managing complexity and uncertainty in the transition to net-zero energy systems
  Dr C Bale, Dr K Roelich
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In June 2019, the UK committed to a legally-binding target to bring all greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050. This provides a hugely challenging, yet necessary goal to radically and rapidly decarbonise the UK’s energy systems.
  Restoration of degraded tropical forests in Vietnam
  Dr D Spracklen, Prof O Phillips
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Extensive restoration of degraded forests is crucial if we are to avoid dangerous climate change and avert major loss of biodiversity.
  Targeted agrochemical delivery using smart nanoparticles for sustainable agriculture
  Dr A Tyler, Prof K. Field
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Huge amounts of agrochemicals, such as fertilisers and biostimulants, are applied to arable farmland each year to boost crop performance.
  Using microfluidic technology to measure and identify atmospheric ice nucleating particles
  Prof B Murray, Dr J Shim, Dr D McCluskey
Application Deadline: 3 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Summary. Our lack of knowledge of how clouds will respond to a changing climate represent one of the largest sources of uncertainty in our projections of future climate (Tan et al., 2016).
