  QUADRAT DTP: Dynamics of carbon capture in Scottish and Irish peatlands over the past centuries
  Dr M Blaauw, Dr D Mauquoy
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Peatlands store and potentially release large amounts of carbon, and thus it is essential to predict their role in future warming (e.g., Gallego-Sala et al., 2018; Ferretto et al.
  QUADRAT DTP: Landscapes of Production: Exploring the Palaeaoenvironmental Context of Stone Tool Quarrying, Manufacture, Use and Deposition on Neolithic Shetland
  Dr W Megarry, Dr J E Schofield
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Landscapes of Production project will explore the palaeoenvironmental context of felsite tool quarrying in Neolithic Shetland.
  QUADRAT DTP: Medical Geology: The Impact of the Natural Environment on Health in Past Populations from Ireland and Scotland
  Prof E Murphy, Dr R Crozier
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The natural environment is inextricably connected with human health. The composition of underlying rocks and minerals have an impact on the air humans breathe, the water they drink, and the food consumed.
  QUADRAT DTP: PALLADIA: ParAíba do suL deLtA seDImentary dynAmics
  Dr R Flood, Dr C North
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Approximately half a billion people live on or near deltas, often in megacities with deltas understood as sensitive environments under pressure.
  QUADRAT DTP: Source-to-sink dynamics and palaeo-environment reconstruction from a dynamically evolving glacial foreland
  Mr A Ruffell, Prof B Rea
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The pathways of glacial meltwater, from surface ablation through to proglacial discharge, are a key component in understanding the role of hydrology and its influence on glacier dynamics.
  QUADRAT: Multidisciplinary Quantification Ecosystem Services to Streams, Provided by Formerly Afforested Blanket Bog.
  Dr R Flynn, Dr V Louca
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Extensive areas of upland blanket peat have been developed for commercial coniferous forestry over the past 70 years. The modification of these areas has resulted in extensive changes to the bogs that host them and the ecosystem services they provide.
  Glacial Impacts on Global Chemical Cycling and Climate Feedbacks (Advert Reference: RDF20/EE/GES/GRALY)
  Dr J Graly
Application Deadline: 24 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 - 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.
  Brasenose College / Ørsted Research Studentship in Cyclic Loading of Offshore Wind Turbine Foundations – Numerical Analysis
  Prof B Byrne, Prof H Burd
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Brasenose College / Ørsted Research Studentship in Cyclic Loading of Offshore Wind Turbine Foundations – Numerical Analysis. 4-year DPhil (PhD) studentship starting October 2020.
  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.
  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.
