  PhD: Microbial activity at the ice-soil interface in a High-Arctic setting
  Dr J Bradley, Dr A Jungblut, Prof K Heppell
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Summary. The Arctic is currently experiencing amplified effects of climate change, including dramatic warming, the widespread retreat of glaciers, and the thawing of permafrost.
  Distribution modelling and the management and conservation of European ectomycorrhizal communities
  Dr M Bidartondo, Dr C D L Orme
Application Deadline: 23 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project, the student will develop cutting-edge distributional models of dominant ectomycorrhizal (ECM) fungal species across Europe and establish vital practice and policy recommendations for the monitoring, management and conservation of these ecologically critical organisms.
  Microplastic-sediment interactions (MiPSi)
  Research Group: Earth Surface Science
  Dr K Spencer, Prof G Wharton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The accelerating global release of microplastics (mP) into the aquatic environment seems inevitable, with long-term consequences for water quality and biodiversity.
  Rewilding and Natural Flood Management
  Research Group: Earth Surface Science
  Dr G Harvey, Dr A Henshaw, Dr S Clarke
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over the last decade, the UK has experienced some of the most significant and extreme flood events of the last 100 years, and predicted changes in precipitation are expected to increase the frequency and costs of flooding.
  Past intermediate and deep ocean circulation during sustained periods of warmth
  Research Group: Earth Surface Science
  Dr H Ford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ocean is absorbing much of the heat and carbon dioxide emissions related to human caused climate change, but the long-term impacts on heat transport, carbon cycling and deep ocean circulation are poorly understood.
  Microbial life and activity on glaciers and in Arctic soils
  Research Group: Earth Surface Science
  Dr J Bradley, Dr A Jungblut, Prof K Heppell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Arctic plays host to a diverse range of microorganisms, including bacteria, algae, and viruses.
  Microbial survival in the energy-limited deep biosphere
  Research Group: Earth Surface Science
  Dr J Bradley, Prof M Trimmer, Prof L Belyea
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The deep subsurface biosphere contains a vast proportion of Earth’s microbial life and organic carbon. In deep, energy-limited settings, microorganisms persist over extraordinarily long timescales with very slow metabolisms – constituting an important analogue to the potential for life beyond Earth.
  Bridging the gap between environment and health – exposure assessment of potentially harmful agents in soil
  Dr P Hooda
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our current understanding of soil exposure in the UK population is extremely limited. The current risk assessment paradigm makes large assumptions based on very uncertain data to estimate direct exposures via soil ingestion or dust inhalation.
  Climate change influences on landsliding in the British Isles
  Dr M Ibsen, Dr A P Dykes, Dr S Downward
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change predictions for the British Isles generally indicate that there will be higher winter rainfall in future, but with more frequent high intensity rainfall events at any time of year.
  Community Resilience – Benefit or Burden?
  Dr T Coates
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Community resilience has become a central part of disaster management approaches over recent years, adopted by policymakers and practitioners’ worldwide.
