Water Chemistry: Understanding the role of Nitrogen in Disinfection By-Products

This exciting fully funded PhD, with an enhanced stipend of £19,000 per annum, will deliver insights into the formation of nitrogenous disinfection by products to allow their concentrations to be minimised through assessment of source water nitrogen and its removal through treatment. Read more

Water resources in agricultural settings: unravelling patterns in water storage, flows and water quality

Are you interested in combining data from novel observational techniques with hydrological modelling to gain new insights into water quality and quantity dynamics under climate change? Then this fully funded PhD project between the University of Aberdeen and the James Hutton Institute in Scotland could be for you. Read more

Modelling the Behaviour of Legacy radioactive particles.

An opportunity has arisen to investigate the behaviour of legacy particles within the marine environment of the Pentland Firth. The successful candidate will undertake hydrodynamic modelling to understand how particles of varying compositions move under the combined forces of currents and waves. Read more

Education for Sustainability and Environmental Impact: The River Garry, a river lost?

This research project adopts an ecosystem services approach to the environment thereby recognising the different services afforded in terms of productivity, ecological support, environmental regulation, and cultural services, including human well-being. Read more

Spatial variations of the urban boundary layer – what are the feedbacks from anthropogenic heat fluxes?

The next generation of weather models will have high resolution sub-km modelling. These will be used to inform critical decisions about how cities operate day-to-day into the future. At this scale, the different neighbourhoods of a city can be distinguished. Read more

Efficient Compositional Simulation of Reactive Transport in CO2 Storage

CO. 2. injection into geological formations triggers complex physical and chemical interactions at different time and length scales, which are critical to the evaluation of subsurface capacities, operational risks, and storage safety. Read more

Co-benefits and Trade-offs for Regenerative Agriculture

Project description. Nearly 70% of UK land area and 50% of European Union (EU) land is used for agriculture. These landscapes have been shaped by centuries of large-scale human impacts through traditional or intensive land-use systems. Read more

Techno‐Economic Impact of Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS)

  Research Group: Mechanical and Process Engineering
The reduction of emissions of greenhouse gases is agreed in November 2016 in the Paris international agreement (IEA Dec. 2016). The agreement is expected to create a transformative change in the energy sector to combat climate change. Read more

Effect of bed slope and roughness on the spreading and dilution of gravity currents

  Research Group: Water Engineering and Natural Environment
Gravity current is frequently encountered in natural (e.g. saltwater intrusion in an estuary) and man-made environments (e.g. mining solution; desalination). Read more

Fully-funded PhD positions in several natural sciences & engineering disciplines

Join an internationally renowned scientific community with the Hector FellowPhD program. PhD students benefit not only from the experience of the program, but also from the network of Hector Fellows. Read more

MSc by Research on Nature Recovery

You will contribute to the research and knowledge arising from a new large-scale nature recovery project in a diverse former agricultural landscape next to Lincoln. Read more
