  ONE Planet DTP - Glacial Impacts on Global Chemical Cycling and Climate Feedbacks (Ref: OP202021)
  Dr J Graly
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project aims to understand the impact of subglacial geochemical processes on global chemical cycling and how these impacts will change in an increasingly deglaciating world.
  ONE Planet DTP - Interhemispheric circulation and moisture changes during the penultimate glacial-interglacial transition – insights from Indian and South Pacific stalagmites (Ref: OP20209)
  Dr S Breitenbach
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Description. This study targets the climatic changes in the southern hemisphere associated with the penultimate glacial, its termination (TII), and the following interglacial (MIS 6, TII and Eemian).
  ONE Planet DTP - Palaeoenvironmental investigation into the origin of the domesticated landscapes of southwestern Amazonia (Ref: OP202026)
  Dr B Whitney
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Contrary to popular conceptions, the Amazon was not a pristine landscape prior to European arrival, but contained large human populations that created complex landscape management systems for the production of food and industrial crops.
  ONE Planet DTP - Reconstructing climate and ancient landscapes in the Maya Mountains, Belize, using tropical land snails (Ref: OP20318)
  Dr O Kwiecien
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Description. A range of palaeoclimate records document Holocene climate change in the ancient Maya region. The extent to which these changes influenced the ancient Maya civilisation is hotly debated.
  ONE Planet DTP - The role of soil ecology and microbiology in sustainable carbon capture (carbonate precipitation) within artificial soils incorporating industry wastes (Ref: OP20305)
  Dr M Prendergast-Miller
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Description. In addition to reducing greenhouse gas emissions it is recognised that sequestration of carbon (geoengineering) is a vital requirement for the future of the planet in mitigating the effects of climate change.
  ONE Planet DTP - Tracing interglacial climate and permafrost dynamics using speleothems from continental Eurasia (Ref: OP20205)
  Dr S Breitenbach
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Description. This study targets above research questions using cave deposits from Botovskaya Cave in southern Siberia. Earlier work has proven high sensitivity of the targeted site to permafrost dynamics over the last 1.5 Ma.
  Biodegradable plastic: understanding the chemistry and its environmental impact
  Prof M Resmini, Dr E Bilotti
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Queen Mary University of London is one of the UK’s leading research-focused higher education institutions, a member of the elite Russell Group of UK universities, and ranked joint 9th in the UK in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework.
  QUADRAT DTP: Can pollutant transfer through benthic elasmobranch food-chains be related to their feeding ecology?
  Prof A Meharg, Dr C S Jones
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A range of pollutants tend to biomagnify through marine food-chains, causing problems both for the health of top predators, and for humans that consume them.
  QUADRAT DTP: Microbial social lives: A multi-scale systems approach to decode microbial metabolic networks
  Dr D Kumaresan, Dr J C Comte, Dr R Doherty
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Methane (CH4), a potent greenhouse gas, is next only to CO2 with a global warming potential of 34.
  QUADRAT DTP: Unravelling the freshwater microbial phosphorus cycle
  Prof J Mcgrath, Dr C Gubry-Rangin, Dr J Chin, Dr B Spears
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Eutrophication of freshwater environments via anthropogenic phosphorus (P) input is one of the most serious global water management issues.
  QUADRAT DTP: PALLADIA: ParAíba do suL deLtA seDImentary dynAmics
  Dr R Flood, Dr C North
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Approximately half a billion people live on or near deltas, often in megacities with deltas understood as sensitive environments under pressure.
  QUADRAT DTP: The impacts of climate change and extreme weather events on cyanobacteria blooms in lakes
  Dr H Roe, Dr A Douglas
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

There has been an increased awareness in recent years of the problems associated with harmful cyanobacteria algal blooms (cyanoHABs) in freshwater systems.
