  Understanding the new environmental risks posed by pollution from the digital economy
  Dr I Burke, Dr R Newton
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The growing consumption of materials in our digital society represents an ever increasing waste stream containing novel and complex mixtures of chemicals, including many oxyanion forming contaminants (OFCs, e.g.
  Towards Production of Bulk Phase, Rare Earth-Free Magnets
  Dr O Cespedes
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Towards production of bulk phase, rare earth-free magnets via novel nanocarbon-metal hybrids with high energy products at room temperature.
  The global carbon cycle budget imbalance
  Dr A Rap, Dr D Spracklen
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will use state-of-the-art models to investigate the extent to which improved representation of biosphere-atmosphere processes reduces the global carbon cycle budget imbalance.
  Caustic response: understanding plant adaptation to high pH and its application to remediation of alkaline industrial residues.
  Research Group: Centre for Plant Sciences
  Prof A Baker, Prof D I Stewart
Application Deadline: 1 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Motivation. Around two billion tonnes of alkaline residues are produced globally each year by industrial processes. These residues are frequently stored in waste piles or landfills, and can be an environmental hazard if allowed to generate dust or if rainwater infiltrates the waste (Gomes et al 2016).
  Slope stability and climate change in high-mountain regions: Understanding and predicting geo-hazards.
  Dr A Abellan, Dr B Murphy, Dr J West, Dr D Quincey
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

HIGHLIGHTS. Timely project. a game changing approach to improve understanding, model and forecast landslides in mountainous areas is urgently needed.
  Synthetic Biology of the peroxisome
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Prof A Baker, Dr S Warriner
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Compartmentalisation is a fundamental feature of eukaryotic cells and increases efficiency and complexity by segregating incompatible reactions and concentrating intermediates.
  Novel routes for manufacturing low carbon cements
  Dr S Bernal, Dr S Adu-Amankwah
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Global population growth, and the increased need for infrastructure, has doubled since 1990 the worldwide demand for Portland cement (PC), which is the main binder used in almost all concretes.
  Impact of Sediment Transport and Vegetation to the Reservoir Hydrodynamics within Fluvial Environment
  Research Group: Centre For Sustainable Environments
  Prof F Hu, Dr J Pu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Reservoirs and dams are popular control mechanisms for different water resources around the world. However, lately, there have been increasing incidences of reservoir failure linked to sediment transport and vegetation within its environment, that have caused massive financial and social impacts.
  Water Engineering: Complex Natural River Flow Modelling and Flood Analysis
  Research Group: Centre For Sustainable Environments
  Dr J Pu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The study on flooding, and identifying suitable ways to mitigate floods, have become a top priority for Government and the Environmental Agency, due to increasing flood frequency and intensity around the UK.
  Simulation and Optimisation of Reverse Osmosis Based Desalination Process
  Research Group: Mechanical and Process Engineering
  Prof I Mujtaba
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Potable water supply is becoming a limited resource now days due to the increase in size of the community. Desalination process to compensate the shortage in potable water is necessary.
  EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Water and Waste Infrastructure Systems Engineered for Resilience (Water-WISER)

Funding Type

PhD Type

50 funded PhD studentships will be available over the next 5 years for UK and EU students.
