  Marine Risk Assessment of High Technology Metals in the Context of Climate Change (MARTECH)
  Prof T Hutchinson, Dr M Truebano Garcia
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Around the world, investment is growing in the electrical economy for communication, transport and renewable energy systems. From smart phones to electric cars, a new generation of High Technology Metals (e.g.
  Land based mitigation for climate change: modelling mitigation options and trade-offs
  Dr P Alexander, Prof M Rounsevell
Application Deadline: 9 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Summary. This project will investigate land based mitigation options for climate change and their associated trade-offs using a state-of-the-art global land use model.
  How is climate change altering productivity and carbon storage across Arctic tundra? (part of the SENSE Centre for Doctoral Training)
  Prof M Williams
Application Deadline: 19 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The Arctic is warming faster than any other land region, and its vegetation is responding, with adjustments to plant cover, phenology and growth.
  Sea salt from blizzards above sea ice - magnitude and climate impacts of a new particle source in a warming world
  Dr M Frey, Prof E Wolff, Dr X Yang
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Atmospheric aerosols represent the largest source of uncertainty in global climate predictions. Aerosols influence radiative forcing and thus climate because they alter the planetary albedo both directly by absorbing and scattering sunlight and indirectly by modifying the reflectivity, lifetime, and extent of clouds.
  KESS2 Scholarship: Strategies to reach zero carbon sheep and beef production on Welsh farms
  Prof D Chadwick, Dr D Styles
Application Deadline: 20 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a three-year research PhD studentship that focuses on strategies to reach zero carbon beef and sheep production in Wales.
  Quantitative Ecology of Antarctic Benthic Communities
  Dr R Whittle, Dr E Mitchell
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ecological structure of modern Antarctic benthic marine communities is unique and differs from the rest of the world. It is dominated by epifaunal suspension feeders (including brachiopods, sponges and stalked crinoids) in shelf areas, with a paucity of shell crushing predators (sharks, rays, durophagous decapods).
  How does serotonin affect sexual behaviour in fish?
  Dr D Joyce
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is a possible role for serotonin in the sand-castle building behaviour of cichlid fishes, behaviour carried out by males to attract females.
  Pollution of freshwaters with selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors: a health perspective
  Dr P Beltran-Alvarez
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A range of pharmaceuticals including selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI) have routinely been measured in waterways, such as rivers and estuaries, in the ng/L range (e.g.
  The role of serotonin in crayfish anti-predatory behaviour and dominance
  Dr T Breithaupt
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Serotonin is involved in anxiety-like behaviour as well as in dominance fights in crayfish. Anxiety-like behaviour can be elicited by a stressful experience such as exposure to chemical predation cues or intraspecific fight experience.
  Modelling middle actors in the building energy retrofit system
  Prof A Heppenstall, Dr A Owen
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Transforming the UK’s existing buildings to a zero carbon building stock by 2050, in order to meet statutory targets, remains an enormous challenge and a major business opportunity.
  What lies beneath: exploring the role subsurface energy technologies and resources in a low carbon future
  Dr J DICKIE, Mrs H Napier, Dr P Bartie
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The UK’s energy system is evolving. It is widely recognised that to meet our future energy needs whilst tackling the increasing threat of climate change, an energy strategy that integrates a broad range of low carbon energy technologies is required.
  High resolution simulations of Antarctic ice sheet loss
  Dr Louise Sime, Dr P Whitehouse, Prof P J Valdes
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding changes in the Antarctic Ice Sheet (AIS) over longer time periods is critical to predicting the likelihood of future sea level change (de Boer, et al.
  Recreating the South Orkney Ice Cap: a sentinel of Antarctic Ice Sheet change?
  Dr K Hogan, Dr S Jamieson
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The South Orkney Plateau (SOP) micro-continent lies in a unique oceanographic position between deep, cold ocean currents formed in the Weddell Sea and the dominant Antarctic Circumpolar Current (ACC).
