  SEESALT: Novel ways to ’SEE’ coastal ’SALT’ marshes using low-cost drones and sensors
  Dr D Green, Dr D Mauquoy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Saltmarshes are found extensively along low wave energy coastlines resulting from fine sediment accumulation and vegetation establishment.
  QUADRAT DTP: Precious metals of the Anthropocene
  Dr T Mighall, Prof A Meharg
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding the consequences of metal pollution is of increasing importance given the ever-growing consumption of resources and the increasing sophistication of metallic products, creating new and different types of waste, which is often discarded into the environment (Nriagu, 1990).
  Socio-economic impacts of rewilding projects
  Research Group: Applied Ecology Research Group (AERG)
  Dr H Wheeler, Dr N Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. Applied Ecology Research Group (AERG) - https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-engineering/research/institutes-and-groups/applied-ecology.
  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

PhD Type

Slope instability is responsible for considerable social and economic harm. In the UK, impacts are principally economic, through damage and disruption to critical infrastructure (e.g.
  The Role of Place and Scale on Effectiveness of Temporary Storage Areas for Surface Runoff Attenuation
  Dr M Wilkinson, Dr J Geris, Prof P Hallett
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project addresses the need to understand where and at what scale land management could help to improve above and below ground storm water storage for managing floods.
  Earth observation for sustainable sugarcane production
  Dr D Simms, Dr P Burgess
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sugarcane production must address the challenge between the need to increase crop production and improve labour productivity whilst improving the efficiency of water and fertiliser use (Hess et al, 2016).
  The role of lateral and tree transport in methane cycling in tropical peatlands
  Dr S Pangala
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tropical peatlands in Southeast Asia have sequestered carbon over thousands of years and are an important global carbon stock.
  Exploring appropriate disaster risk awareness raising methods among informal construction sector
  Dr K Chmutina
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Rapid but often poorly controlled urbanisation and the increase in construction delivered by informal workers with low levels of education and vocational training in locations highly vulnerable to impacts of natural hazards is common in Low and Middle-Income Countries around the world.
  ONE Planet DTP - CLIPI- Climate planning and implementations of infrastructures (OP20227)
  Dr O Heidrich
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cities around the world and in the UK in particular develop local climate plans (Heidrich et al 2016; Reckien at al 2018). Yet, the success of these plans might only unfold when their aims and objectives in terms of climate actions are implemented – infrastructures are built (outcome).
  ONE Planet DTP - Developing novel geophysical tools to investigate urban plant-water processes.
  Dr R Stirling
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD aims to improve our understanding of how street vegetation influence soil-water capacity in the built environment through the use of geophysical tomography.
