  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.
  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).
  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).
  Magnox sludge immobilisation in bespoke acid-based geopolymers
  Dr S Bernal, Dr S Adu-Amankwah, Dr L Black
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Disposal of magnesium-bearing intermediate level waste sludge arising from reprocessed spent fuel from Magnox reactors in the UK presents significant decommissioning challenges.
  Novel routes for manufacturing low carbon cements
  Dr S Bernal, Dr S Adu-Amankwah
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Global population growth, and the increased need for infrastructure, has doubled since 1990 the worldwide demand for Portland cement (PC), which is the main binder used in almost all concretes.
  Changing connectivity properties impacting resilience in riverine landscapes as socio-ecological systems (ESR 8)
  Dr T Hein
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

- To analyse the linkage between connectivity (and its properties – functional and structural components as well as feedback loops), resilience and stability in industrialized riverine landscapes (IRL) as socio-ecological systems including co-evolutionary aspects;.
  Fibrous minerals in the environment – occurrence, longevity and risk to human health.
  Dr D Bullen, Dr A Gibson, Dr M Fowler
Application Deadline: 23 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a fully-funded three year PhD to commence in October 2020. The PhD will be based in the Faculty of Science and Health, and will be supervised by Dr Bullen, Dr Gibson and Dr Fowler.
  SCENARIO - Determining carbon pool turnover rates in semi-arid biomes of Australia as drivers of global carbon cycle inter-annual variability
  Dr K.H. White
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The atmospheric carbon component exhibits large interannual variability primarily driven by terrestrial processes, some of which are poorly understood.
  SCENARIO - The domestication of Amazon rainforests by pre-Columbian societies
  Dr F Mayle, Dr JS Singarayer
Application Deadline: 31 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.
  Developing geopolymer wasteforms for safe and sustainable disposal of radioactive waste
  Dr B Walkley, Prof J Provis
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will for the first time resolve the reaction mechanisms, rate of reaction and structure of cement-based wasteforms for safe and sustainable disposal of radioactive waste.
  KESS2 Scholarship (MbyRes): Gold in Wales; soil geochemistry as an exploration tool.
  Dr D Pirrie
Application Deadline: 26 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Here is an exciting opportunity to study new methods of geological data analysis and visualisation which could lead to entirely new approaches for the mineral exploration strategy within the Dolgellau Gold Belt, Wales.

  Dr S Matallana-Surget, Dr T Gutierrez
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Emerging pollutants represent one of the main environmental concerns; they are defined as new contaminants produced by modern society that are not routinely monitored, but cause adverse ecological effects.
  SCENARIO - Occurrence and fate of microplastics in freshwater systems
  Dr D Lapworth, Dr T Bond, Dr M Felipe-Sotelo, Dr D Read
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type
