  Groundwater and nutrient dynamics in heterogeneous agricultural catchments - QUADRAT
  Dr J C Comte, Dr U Ofterdinger
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
In Irish and Scottish agricultural regions, groundwater is increasingly recognised as a major pathway for water and nutrient inputs to streams [1].
  Ice and fire: exploring relationships between glaciers, volcanoes and climate - QUADRAT
  Dr M Spagnolo, Dr D Mullan
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Mountain glacier surface mass balance responds to changes in climate. The glacier equilibrium line altitude (ELA), the elevation at which net accumulation equals net ablation, has been empirically linked to both precipitation and temperature.
  Ice streams: present-to-palaeo - QUADRAT
  Prof B Rea, Dr A Newton
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Ice streams are the arteries which drain large quantities of ice from the interior of ice sheets to the ice margin. From both palaeo and present they are known to display dynamical behaviour in relation to ice flow velocity.
  Jurassic Lagoon: learning from the ancestors of the amazing mussels - QUADRAT
  Dr A Brasier, Dr J Sigwart
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Mussels (bivalves of the family Mytilidae) are incredible animals with a long fossil history. For millions of years, populations of mussels have been able to withstand pounding waves by attaching themselves to the seafloor using threads that are one of the strongest materials found in nature.
  MOSAIC: Microplastics in Scotland and Northern Ireland Catchment and Marine Environments - QUADRAT
  Dr D Muirhead, Dr R Flood
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The current understanding of microplastic flux between terrestrial and marine environments is extremely limited and considered primarily in ‘pristine environments’ (e.g., Arctic ice).
  Sea-level change and conservation, past, present and future - QUADRAT
  Dr J Neilson, Dr J Sigwart
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Strangford Lough in Northern Ireland is a unique marine water body, a large deep inland sea connected to the open ocean by a narrow channel that creates tidal currents of speeds up to 9 knots.
  Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) from depleted Sandstone and Carbonate/chalk reservoirs
  Dr P Jadhawar, Dr H Hamidi
Applications accepted all year round
Nearly one third of the oil is left behind in the reservoir after the primary and secondary recovery methods of oil recovery.
  Low-Carbon Energy Recovery from Methane Hydrate Reservoirs
  Dr P Jadhawar, Dr W Afzal
Applications accepted all year round
Naturally occurring gas (mostly methane) hydrates along the continental margins (coastal offshore) and permafrost sediments are the clean source of energy outnumbering the rest forms of conventional energy sources.
  Biodiversity footprint of quarry restoration
  Dr A Helden
Applications accepted all year round
Research Group. Animal and Environment Research Group (AERG). https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-technology/research/our-research-institutes-and-groups/animal-and-environment-research-group.
  User engagement with renewable energy: what works in theory and what is done in practice?
  Prof A Jones
Application Deadline: 3 March 2019
Research Area. Sustainability and environment. This PhD will explore how, and how effectively, different user engagement theories are being applied in local and integrated renewable energy projects.
