NERC-funded PhD studentships: Departments of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Materials and Dyson School of Design Engineering, Imperial College London

The Science and Solutions for a Changing Planet (SSCP) Doctoral Training Partnership integrates six host partners and several business and policy sector partners, to offer an exciting programme that trains and inspires the next generation of environmental experts and leaders to address some of the toughest challenges of our time.

ACCE DTP fully-funded project: Developing rapid and low-cost mass spectrometry-based identification of biological sex in fossils

The analysis of proteins preserved in archaeological and paleontological contexts (termed palaeoproteomics) is an exciting new area in archaeological science, generating ground-breaking new insights into the phylogenies of extinct species, human and animal diets, as well as patterns of health and disease.

ACCE DTP fully-funded project: Ants as ecosystem engineers: using ants to promote biodiversity

We are looking for an enthusiastic and ambitious student to develop an exciting project using field experiments to quantify the relationship between meadow ants and management regimes, and how these together affect biodiversity and soil function. Read more

ACCE DTP fully-funded project: Bet-hedging plants: Resilience of plant populations to fluctuating temperatures under climate change

This project is ideal for (i) a student with a biology or ecology background with some programming experience and an interest in modelling or (ii) a student with a maths, physics or computer science background who is interested in learning how to perform plant biology experiments. Read more

ACCE DTP fully-funded project: Genetic consequences of climate change-induced range shifts in Aricia butterflies

The evolutionary consequences of climate change are poorly understood, despite the ubiquity of climate change. In particular, historic geographic separations between related species have broken down in a number of instances as species shift their distributions, potentially resulting in hybridisation.

ACCE DTP fully-funded project: The evolution of chemical defences in plants

Plants have evolved an arsenal of chemical compounds with which to interact with the environment. These taxonomically restricted specialised metabolites contribute towards adaptive evolution, and the pathways and genes vary across taxa and within species and populations. Read more

ACCE DTP fully-funded project: Invisible diversity in a changing world: How do soil microbes affect plant drought tolerance?

Background. The UN 2030 agenda goals sets the need for sustainable development. These goals have resulted in increased interest in the addition of beneficial microorganisms (‘biofertilisers’) and soil-adjuvats (to improve plant-soil water relationships) to promote plant productivity. Read more
