  A Phosphorus Control on Oceanic Anoxic Events under Greenhouse Climates?
  Prof S Poulton, Dr C Marz, Dr B Mills, Dr R Newton
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Background.
  A predator-prey arms race in Mesozoic oceans
  Dr A Dunhill, Dr A Beckerman, Dr J Dunne, Prof P Wignall
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The diversity of modern marine animals has increased dramatically over the past 230 million years, beginning with an event called the Mesozoic Marine Revolution (MMR).
  Adapting Road Infrastructure for Autonomous Vehicles
  Dr Y Huang, Prof O Carsten, Dr J Wang
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Autonomous vehicles are emerging as a solution to human driver limitations, such as imprecise control of speed and road position.
  Analysis, occurrence and fate of flubendazole in moorland river catchments
  Dr P Kay, Dr R Ansell
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Red grouse sport shooting is regularly practiced on moorlands. Man-made chemicals have been used increasingly on grouse moors since the mid-1980s to maintain grouse populations because parasitic nematode worms (Trichostrongylus tenuis) reduce both breeding success and adult survival.
  BioDAR: Using Weather Radars to Examine Biodiversity
  Dr R Neely, Dr C Hassall
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Overview and Scientific need. Weather radar scan the entirety of the UK every 5 minutes, and similar types of radar are used around the world.
  Change in the ice speed and mass balance of the Antarctic Ice Sheet, from Earth Observation satellite data
  Dr A Hogg
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Satellite Earth Observation has revolutionized our understanding of the remote and inaccessible Polar Regions.
  Climate Resilient Seed Systems in Africa
  Dr S Whitfield, Prof A Challinor, Dr S Kepinski
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Crop breeding is a key area of investment in African agricultural development, as supported by the Comprehensive Africa Agricultural Development Platform and large donor funded programmes (such as those of the CGIAR and the BMGF) (Whitfield, 2015).
  Combining machine learning and decision science to model transport and energy choices using emerging data sources
  Dr C Choudhury, Prof S Hess
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Machine learning and choice modelling techniques have been developed in parallel as tools for modelling human decisions.
  Combining magma flow models and deformation measurements to understand magma ascent at silicic volcanoes
  Prof J Neuberg, Dr S Ebmeier
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Volcanic deformation can be caused by a broad range of processes related to the movement and evolution of magma. The type of processes detectable depends on the temporal and spatial resolution of the measurement method.
  Depositional architecture and deformation of an active interbasinal relay zone: Corinth Isthmus, Greece
  Dr R Collier, Prof DM Hodgson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Relay zones in active rifts are areas where strain is distributed between overlapping normal faults. At the scale of the major basin-bounding faults, interbasinal relay zones (or accommodation zones) separate depocentres along the rift axis.
