  Evolutionary responses of Daphnia spp. to biophysical disruption in tropical lake systems
  Dr D Ryves, Prof J Anderson, Dr L Orsini, Dr S Mills
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Loughborough University is a top-ten rated university in England for research intensity (REF2014). In choosing Loughborough for your research, you’ll work alongside academics who are leaders in their field.
  Spawning habitat characteristics of lithophilic fish – using experimental approaches to inform river restoration
  Dr P Wood, Dr D Ryves, Dr A Pledger
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Loughborough University is a top-ten rated university in England for research intensity (REF2014). In choosing Loughborough for your research, you’ll work alongside academics who are leaders in their field.
  Emissions of Greenhouse Gases from Extensive Agriculture in the Indio-Gangetic Plain
  Dr H Boesch, Dr H Sembhi
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Agriculture is the world’s second-largest emitter of damaging greenhouse gases (GHG) after the energy sector. The future growth of the global population will result in additional pressures on the agricultural sector to secure food production whilst aiming to reduce GHG emissions.
  Improved driving-scenario-based inventories for real world tailpipe emissions from contemporary vehicles
  Dr J Vande Hey, Dr A Spencer
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Air pollution is a major problem globally, with ambient (outdoor) air pollution estimated by the World Health Organisation to cause 4.2 million premature deaths per year.
  Space-based solutions to air pollution in the UK
  Dr E Marais, Prof P Monks
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Air pollution is the largest global threat to health (Lancet, 2017). In the UK, about 40,000 people die prematurely each year due to exposure to air pollution (RCP, 2016) and UK health care costs due to air pollution may be as high as £160 million per year (PHE, 2018).
  The elusive BVOC: mapping atmospheric isoprene from space
  Dr J Harrison, Dr M Barkley
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
It is well established that terrestrial vegetation emits a diverse range of reactive biogenic volatile organic compounds (BVOCs) into the atmosphere, which serve important roles in the biosphere, influencing global atmospheric chemistry and affecting climate.
  Downstream dispersal and transfer of macroplastics in river systems: a travel distance approach
  Dr M Powell, Prof S E Gabbott
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Environmental pollution by synthetic polymers (plastics) is a global problem that severely impacts ecosystem form and function, human health, natural resource management and environmental aesthetics.
  Understanding and mitigating the environmental impacts of metal ore processing wastes produced using “green” solvents
  Dr GRT Jenkin, Dr M Whelan
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Conventional mineral extraction from mined ores (e.g. for metals) is often an energy-intensive process, requiring either smelting or leaching at elevated temperature, or the use of large quantities of strong acids or bases that are energy intensive to produce.
  Understanding nitrous oxide “hot-spot” dynamics in upland soils
  Dr M Whelan, Dr J Kaduk
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Nitrous oxide (N2O) is a powerful greenhouse gas. It is important, therefore, to understand the factors controlling its emission – particularly from agricultural systems.
  Micro- and nanoplastics: the fate and the impact on marine life
  Dr S Yang, Dr W Norton
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
By 2015, humans had generated 8.3 billion metric tons of plastics, 6.3 billion tons of which had already become waste. Of that waste total, only 9 percent was recycled, 12 percent was incinerated and 79 percent accumulated in landfills or the natural environment.
