Commercial real estate markets are increasingly prone to dynamic and disruptive change, the drivers of which include technological, social, environmental and employment practices.
  Impact of micro-karstic flow on Chalk aquifer function and water quality
  Dr J West, Prof S Bottrell
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Highlights and Novelty. Opportunity for investigating the impacts of contaminants on water quality and security. Investigation of one of the world’s most important aquifers, the Cretaceous Chalk.
  Landslide early warning: developing novel geophysical monitoring approaches to ‘see inside’ unstable slopes
  Dr J Chambers, Prof A M Binley
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

Project Background. Predicting the future behaviour of ice shelves is critical for understanding how Antarctica will respond to climate warming.
  Vulnerabilities’ and ‘Capabilities’ within the Context of Protracted Displacement Crises
  Dr K Sharapov, Dr T Guma
Application Deadline: 9 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Whilst the ’vulnerabilities’ of individuals forced to cross borders and of internally displaced persons have been often highlighted and documented over several decades, less is known about the ’capabilities’ of displaced people themselves to respond to contexts of exile/displacement.
  Genetic rescue and the conservation of small populations (SPURGINUBIO20ARIES)
  Dr L Spurgin, Prof M Gage, Dr J Gilroy
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This studentship will address the question of whether small populations can be “genetically rescued”. The student will carry out replicated and controlled genetic rescue experiments to determine the extent and conditions under which immigration improves population performance in the wild.
