  QUADRAT DTP CASE: Sustainable Resilience to Coastal Erosion: Innovative Approaches to Protection of Assets Along Coastlines at Risk
  Dr D Green, Prof J McKinley
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

All coastlines are subject to dynamic change through wave and wind action resulting in significant loss or gain of land through erosion and/or accretion.

  Dr J Geris, Dr D Mullan
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Catchment water storage is one of the most important functions controlling water availability and streamflow. Where and when water is stored and how different ’stores’ (e.g.
  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: Environmental ancient DNA analysis of Lateglacial and Early Holocene contexts in Ireland and Scotland
  Dr L Girdland Flink, Dr G Plunkett
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to refine our understanding of Lateglacial and Early Holocene biodiversity and ecosystems in Scotland and Ireland using ancient DNA extracted from ancient sediments (sedimentary ancient DNA, or sedaDNA).
  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).
  QUADRAT DTP: Quantifying carbon accumulation and loss in Russian Arctic peatlands
  Dr D Mauquoy, Dr M Blaauw
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Peatlands in Russia (and North America) are a major terrestrial carbon store and a natural sink for atmospheric CO2 during the Holocene (Charman et al., 2013, holding around 612 gigatonnes of carbon, which represents a larger stock than the worlds live vegetation.

  Dr O Dunnett
Application Deadline: 13 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Collaborative Doctoral Award project for entry in October 2020. The project aims to investigate the historical geographies of astronomy at Armagh Observatory, which is the oldest continuously-active astronomical research institution in the British Isles.

  Dr G A Hamill
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Currently 53% of people live on the 10% of the earth’s surface that is within 200km of the coast. Meeting the needs of coastal communities forms one of the major challenges facing society in the 21st Century and in particular an engineering solution is needed to the provide sustainable fresh water supplies.

  Dr K Prager, Prof S Redpath
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Agri-environment-climate schemes (AECS) are a voluntary policy mechanism to incentivise and compensate farmers for undertaking environmental measures as part of their land management.

  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.
