  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: 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: Exploring the potential of multi-tissue sulphur and strontium isotope analysis and isoscape modelling to reconstruct past faunal movements
  Dr K Britton, Dr N Ogle
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The reconstruction of the lifetime movements of archaeological animals can provide us with unique perspectives on past human societies and – when involving wild species – can also provide valuable insights into ancient ecosystems.
  QUADRAT DTP: Trace element behaviour in surface environments on enriched shales, Britain and Ireland
  Prof J Parnell, Prof A Meharg
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A critical aspect of environmental studies is the understanding of how trace elements are distributed in surface deposits where they can cause toxicity in the water supply, animals and foodstuffs.
  Archaeal polyphosphate cycling: novel enzymes to drive new technologies
  Dr J Chin, Prof J Mcgrath
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Phosphorus is a globally important resource used particularly by the agricultural industry in fertiliser, enabling the growth of enough crops to feed the world’s increasing population.
  Gene mining useful biocatalysts from paleosols
  Prof C Allen, Dr C Law
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Paleosols are often sediments that are relatively unaffected by the Anthropocene. While there is much research on the microbial community structure found in urban and agricultural soils, these relatively undisturbed soils are very different in a geological and physical context.
  Microbial interactions in unique chemosynthetic ecosystems –an integrated ‘Omic approach
  Dr D Kumaresan, Prof J Mcgrath, Dr R Doherty
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Despite the lack of photosynthetically-fixed carbon, the Movile Cave ecosystem hosts a diverse range of invertebrates.
  The marine phosphorus cycle and the methane paradox
  Prof J Mcgrath, Dr J Chin
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Marine microorganisms play major roles in regulating climate and driving global biogeochemical cycling. It has long been recognised that phosphorus (P) availability plays a major role in these processes by controlling marine primary productivity.
  Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) from depleted Sandstone and Carbonate/chalk reservoirs
  Dr P Jadhawar, Dr H Hamidi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nearly one third of the oil is left behind in the reservoir after the primary and secondary recovery methods of oil recovery.
  Exploitation and production from Methane Hydrate reservoirs (Arctic and Subsea porous media)
  Dr P Jadhawar, Dr J Derksen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Naturally occurring gas (mostly methane) hydrates along the continental margins (coastal offshore) and permafrost sediments are the clean source of energy outnumbering the rest forms of conventional energy sources.
  SCENARIO - The domestication of Amazon rainforests by pre-Columbian societies
  Dr F Mayle, Dr JS Singarayer
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The extent to which pre-Columbian (pre-AD1492) human societies transformed Amazonia from a virgin wilderness into a domesticated landscape is one of the most contentious debates in tropical ecology.
