  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.
  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.
  Transport of radioactive waste along the Sellafield shoreline: climate change impact and mitigation strategies through nature based solutions
  Dr N Leonardi, Prof A Plater
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This proposal aims to build on previous collaboration across the Department of Geography and Planning and NNL on the ARCoES project.
  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.
  Tectonic evolution of the Borborema Province in NE Brazil, PhD project based at Monash University, Australia
  Prof R Weinberg
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project focuses on structural geology and tectonic evolution of the Borborema Province in NE Brazil using structural geology, sediment provenance through zircon studies and metamorphic petrology in collaboration with the Brazilian Geological Survey.
  Validating Cenozoic records of deep-sea ostracod diversity
  Dr I Boomer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ostracods are microscopic, bivalved crustaceans that have a long fossil record in marine and non-marine habitats. The existence of deep-sea ostracod assemblages in today’s oceans have been known since the 19th century Challenger expedition.
  Sources, transport pathways and fate of plastic litter in rivers
  Dr M Powell, Dr M Whelan
Application Deadline: 22 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Environmental pollution by synthetic polymers (plastics) is a global problem that can have some major impacts on wildlife and human health and on environmental aesthetics1-3.
  Effect of atmospheric stability on aeolian transport
  Dr B Li, Dr J Cooper
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Atmospheric stability is the air vertical movement tendency controlled by atmospheric stratification, which can usually be measured using a series of Richardson numbers.
