We welcome proposals in our Humanities disciplines that speak to our interdisciplinary research group themes. American Studies. on any aspect of the history, literature, and culture of the pre-1776 North American colonies, the United States, and the Caribbean.
  Place Leadership in Northern England: Changing Regimes (SF19/LHRM/SHUTT2)
  Prof J Shutt, Prof J Liddle
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A new level of regional governance has been introduced into the UK since 2014 with the introduction of the Northern Powerhouse, the West Midlands Engine, and the Oxford Cambridge Corridor and the Western Powerhouse.
  Investigating the impact of climate change on riverine flooding (Advert Reference: SF18/MCE/MOTTA)
  Dr D Motta
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Riverine flooding evaluation typically includes a hydrologic analysis to estimate the flood peak discharge or hydrograph for a reference return period, and a hydraulic model to compute the corresponding water surface elevations and flooded areas.
  Mainstreaming Green Infrastructure into Planning Policy (Advert Reference: SF18/GES/SCOTT)
  Prof A Scott
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will undertake an assessment of local plans across England, Wales and Scotland drawing upon a methodology pioneered by Hislop and Scott 2018.
  Microbial life and activity on glaciers and in Arctic soils
  Research Group: Earth Surface Science
  Dr J Bradley, Dr A Jungblut, Prof K Heppell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Arctic plays host to a diverse range of microorganisms, including bacteria, algae, and viruses.
  Microbial survival in the energy-limited deep biosphere
  Research Group: Earth Surface Science
  Dr J Bradley, Prof M Trimmer, Prof L Belyea
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The deep subsurface biosphere contains a vast proportion of Earth’s microbial life and organic carbon. In deep, energy-limited settings, microorganisms persist over extraordinarily long timescales with very slow metabolisms – constituting an important analogue to the potential for life beyond Earth.
  Microplastic-sediment interactions (MiPSi)
  Research Group: Earth Surface Science
  Dr K Spencer, Prof G Wharton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The accelerating global release of microplastics (mP) into the aquatic environment seems inevitable, with long-term consequences for water quality and biodiversity.
  Past intermediate and deep ocean circulation during sustained periods of warmth
  Research Group: Earth Surface Science
  Dr H Ford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ocean is absorbing much of the heat and carbon dioxide emissions related to human caused climate change, but the long-term impacts on heat transport, carbon cycling and deep ocean circulation are poorly understood.
  Quantification of the impact of changing vegetation on hillslope sediment transport
  Research Group: Earth Surface Science
  Dr S Grieve, Dr E Lines
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hillslope sediment transport exists on a continuum from the gradual downslope motion of particles, termed soil creep, to catastrophic shallow landslides and debris flows.
  Rewilding and Natural Flood Management
  Research Group: Earth Surface Science
  Dr G Harvey, Dr A Henshaw, Dr S Clarke
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over the last decade, the UK has experienced some of the most significant and extreme flood events of the last 100 years, and predicted changes in precipitation are expected to increase the frequency and costs of flooding.
  SALine INtrusion in coastal Aquifers (SALINA): Hydrodynamic Assessment and Prediction of Dynamic Response
  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.
