  Processing and fluxes of DOM in peat-pools and lochans
  Dr P Gilbert, Dr D Mayor
Application Deadline: 13 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Peatlands are the UKs largest carbon store, yet they have been largely degraded by poor land management. Combined with predicted increased likelihood of extreme weather events (e.g.
  Developing new UAV-based survey approaches for monitoring tree and soil health indices in SE Asian oil palm plantations
  Dr P Scholefield, Dr R Ewers, Mr J Moat, Dr N McNamara
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Poor tree health in Oil Palm plantations is a primary cause of low yield, typically dealt with by applying high volumes of fertilizers, pesticides, fungicides and herbicides.
  Image processing and machine learning applied to Earth Observation of the cryosphere (part of the SENSE Centre for Doctoral Training).
  Dr R Bingham, Dr N Gourmelen
Application Deadline: 19 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A number of recent studies have begun to highlight the potential to analyse remote sensing imagery to monitor changes that have occurred to the Earth’s ice sheets, ice caps and glaciers over the last few decades.
  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.

  Prof P Murchie, Dr D Powell, Dr R Vieira
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

1. Background to the project.
  Tracking radionuclide pollution
  Dr M Andersen, Dr D Richards
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Background. Pollution by anthropogenic radionuclides is ubiquitous in the environment. In particular, Wales and the southwest of England have experienced the legacy of the atomic age from the spread of toxic radionuclides from a range of now-decommissioned nuclear power plants (e.g.
  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.
  ONE Planet DTP - Ocean wave field and climate monitoring with a GNSS Wave Glider (OP20292)
  Dr N Penna
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ocean wave field monitoring is needed for climatology, as it controls the input of wind stress into the oceanic mixed layer and thereby serves as a control for the global ocean climate.
  Department of Humanities (Advert Reference: RDF20/HUMANITIES)

Funding Type

PhD Type

Contact for queries relating to academic proposals. Dr Katherine Baxter [email protected] We are pleased to offer funded studentships including a full tax-free stipend, paid for three years at RCUK rates (for 2019/20, this is £15,009 pa) and full tuition fees.
  Assessing the impact of peatland restoration on freshwater ecosystems
  Dr C Bryce, Prof P Johnes, Prof R Pancost
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Decades of degradation have turned the UK’s peatlands from sinks to sources of organic carbon, with adverse consequences for adjacent freshwater ecosystems.
  E4 DTP - Valuing Ecosystem Services produced by the Colombian Páramos
  Prof D Moran
Application Deadline: 9 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Páramos are tropical mountain wetlands found between 3000m and 4500m of elevation in the Andes. Known for their extreme water storage and regulation, they generate high and sustained base flows crucial for water provisioning to farmland, settlements and cities (e.g.
  Socio-ecological landscape dynamics in the headwaters of the Okavango. CASE partner: National Geographic Society
  Dr C Ryan, Dr K Dexter
Application Deadline: 9 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Summary. Using remote sensing and field work to understand the changing landscape and human use of the Okavango watershed in the highlands of Angola.
  Temporal and Spatial Carbon Cycle Dynamics of an Evolving Tropical Delta (IAPETUS 2 Project)
  Dr A Bass, Dr P Gulliver
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Deltas and associated wetlands are a relatively minor surface feature, comprising less than 4-6% of the terrestrial land area. However, deltas have a disproportionately critical role in carbon stocks and fluxes, a role that is subject to dynamic changes both natural and anthropogenic.
  Marine ecology and spatial planning for changing coral reef ecosystems
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Dr M Beger
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is an open call for international or self-funded students who wish to develop their skill base in marine conservation science.
  Change in the ice speed and mass balance of the Antarctic Ice Sheet, from Earth Observation satellite data
  Dr A Hogg
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Satellite Earth Observation has revolutionized our understanding of the remote and inaccessible Polar Regions.
  How do smallholder farmers’ climate change adaptations impact upon local food safety and nutrition in Africa?
  Prof L Stringer, Prof Y Gong
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

There are approximately 33 million smallholder farms in sub-Saharan Africa, representing 80% of the region’s farms. Climate change has increasingly been highlighted as a major threat to smallholder production and food security, both globally and at the local scale.
  Disentangling landuse and climatic roles in sediment delivery to upland British lakes
  Dr H Sangster, Prof R Chiverell
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The studentship seeks to exploit existing datasets compiled at Liverpool for a series of catchments from around the UK and develop new sites to disentangle the competing roles of landuse and climate on sediment delivery to lakes.
  Abundance within species’ ranges: understanding species’ responses to environmental change
  Dr F Schrodt, Prof R Field
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Accelerated climate change and environmental degradation make it necessary to improve our understanding of, and ability to predict, species’ responses to environmental change.
  Avalanche dynamics on desert dunes: Processes and drivers, from ancient to modern
  Dr J Nield, Dr R Ewing, Dr M Baddock
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Avalanching is responsible for wind-blown dune migration on Earth and Mars and because avalanches are preserved in dune stratigraphy, they are the most direct way that we can interpret past wind-climate conditions.
  Quantifying the role of natural and anthropogenically driven geomorphic disturbances in forest landscapes on global carbon emissions
  Prof SE Darby, Prof J Dash, Dr GJ Roberts
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. This project aims to quantify (1985-2020) the extent to which the world’s forests have been fragmented by geomorphic disturbances (landsliding and river channel migration) and explore the implications with respect to determining the impacts of this fragmentation and loss on the global carbon cycle.
  The Evolution of Fluvial Sediment Delivery from Asia’s Rivers to the Oceans: Trends and Causes
  Dr J Leyland, Prof SE Darby
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. This project aims to quantify and explain variations (1985-2020) in the discharge of fluvial sediment to the oceans, with a focus on the continent of Asia.
