Showing 1 to 10 of 12
  Improving hydrological modelling in cold regions with satellite observations
  Dr Z Duan
Application Deadline: 29 March 2019
Global warming is accelerating snow-glacier retreat and shifting hydrology in cold regions, which affects sustainable development of downstream residents.
  CoastWatchers: A citizen observatory for mitigating coastal hazards
  Dr S Ilic, Dr A Gormally, Dr M James
Application Deadline: 29 March 2019
This fully funded PhD studentship provides an excellent opportunity to take a leading role in the rapidly expanding area of citizen science.
  The impact of changes in river flow regime on the behaviour and population ecology of dippers, a riparian bird and bioindicator
  Dr S Sharp, Dr D Whyatt
Application Deadline: 29 March 2019
Freshwater ecosystems provide crucial ecosystem services and support exceptional biodiversity. However, rivers are highly influenced by environmental change and are among the most threatened of all ecosystems.
  The Genesis of Volcanic Ash
  Dr S Lane, Dr J Gilbert, Dr M James
Application Deadline: 29 March 2019
Fine-grained volcanic ash is created during pyroclast collisions within energetic volcanic flows in conduits, jets and pyroclastic density currents.
  Mineral controls on the degradation and preservation of organic compounds in oxygen-depleted conditions
  Dr R Guilbaud, Dr C Halsall
Application Deadline: 29 March 2019
Emerging organic pollutants constitute some of today’s most pertinent challenges, because of their persistence and accumulation in the environment.
  Ice Sheets from the cloud: Developing cloud computing solutions for big data challenges in satellite Earth Observation
  Dr M McMillan, Prof G Blair
Application Deadline: 29 March 2019
Accurate satellite monitoring of Greenland and Antarctica is one of the most important challenges for understanding sea-level rise.
  Understanding phase transformations in migratory armyworms
  Prof K Wilson
Application Deadline: 29 March 2019
Armyworms comprise some of the most devastating crop pests globally, including the invasive Fall armyworm, which is currently spreading across Africa and Asia.
  Exploring natural diversity in Rubisco activase isoforms to enhance the climate resilience of crops
  Dr E Carmo-Silva, Dr M Lundgren
Application Deadline: 29 March 2019
Rubisco activase is a key regulator of carbon assimilation and has been shown to limit photosynthesis when temperatures increase above the thermal optimum.
  Solar photovoltaic and environment interactions: developing understanding and embedding co-benefits into the low carbon energy transition
  Dr A Armstrong
Application Deadline: 18 April 2019
Decarbonisation of energy supplies is triggering notable land use change across the world. To date there is relatively limited understanding of the consequences of this land use change yet considerable opportunity to embed ecosystem co-benefits.
  Understanding drought tolerance of potato using multispectral imaging technology
  Dr L Bell
Application Deadline: 29 March 2019
Potato crop yield is severely affected by drought and heat stress. Extremes in UK summer temperatures and periods of drought are likely to increase due to climate change, and new methods are required to maintain yields.
