  ONE Planet DTP - Glacial Impacts on Global Chemical Cycling and Climate Feedbacks (Ref: OP202021)
  Dr J Graly
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project aims to understand the impact of subglacial geochemical processes on global chemical cycling and how these impacts will change in an increasingly deglaciating world.
  ONE Planet DTP - Sustainable Water Management in Water-Scarce Drylands (Ref: OP202036)
  Dr D Motta
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Water scarcity and depletion of renewable water resources is a growing humanitarian and environmental threat, partly connected to global warming, but also to water mismanagement and overexploitation, as well as drastic landscape modification.
  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.
  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.
  KESS2 Scholarship (MbyRes): Gold in Wales; soil geochemistry as an exploration tool.
  Dr D Pirrie
Application Deadline: 26 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Here is an exciting opportunity to study new methods of geological data analysis and visualisation which could lead to entirely new approaches for the mineral exploration strategy within the Dolgellau Gold Belt, Wales.
  Establishing the Battery Mineral Potential of Wales
  Prof W Maier, Prof T Blenkinsop
Application Deadline: 7 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The UK is facing an unprecedented energy challenge with the recent announcement that all combustion engines (petrol & diesel engines) will be progressively phased out by 2030, and replaced with electric vehicles.
  Climate change influences on landsliding in the British Isles
  Dr M Ibsen, Dr A P Dykes, Dr S Downward
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change predictions for the British Isles generally indicate that there will be higher winter rainfall in future, but with more frequent high intensity rainfall events at any time of year.
  Dinoflagellate cysts and palaeoenvironmental change during Cretaceous oceanic anoxic events: a study of OAE1a
  Prof I Jarvis, Prof G Gillmore
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will study Cretaceous dinoflagellate cysts. It seeks to understand relationships between dinocysts, a proxy for marine nutrient availability and organic zooplankton fertility, and episodes of black shale (petroleum source rock) deposition during Oceanic Anoxic Events (OAEs) in the mid-Cretaceous.
  Flood mitigation schemes in rural communities in the south west of England
  Dr K Clarke, Dr A P Dykes, Dr M Ibsen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There have been several severe flood events in southwest England in recent years, including Boscastle in 2004, Dawlish in 2014 and Coverack in 2014 and July 2017.
  Improved understanding of the Vaiont landslide based on refined modelling using updated geological information
  Dr A P Dykes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Vaiont landslide occurred in 1963 in northern Italy and has perplexed researchers ever since. Recently, however, new geological information and interpretations have led to an entirely new framework for understanding the event.
