  [EPSRC - iCASE] Microbe – radionuclide interactions in legacy nuclear waste systems
  Research Group: Molecular Environmental Sciences
  Prof J Lloyd, Prof K Morris, Prof S Shaw, Dr L Natrajan
Application Deadline: 29 April 2019
Recent work in the Geomicrobiology Group at the University of Manchester has shown that microorganisms can have a controlling impact on the speciation (and hence mobility) of key radionuclides in a broad range of natural and engineered systems.
  Viability of novel processing routes to current and advanced nuclear materials
  Prof T Abram, Dr R Harrison
Applications accepted all year round
Nuclear power accounts for 20% of UK energy production, making it a critical energy source for the development of society and economy.
  Soil microbiome function controlling radionuclide bioavailability and soil-to-plant transfer
  Dr J Pittman, Dr C Robinson
Applications accepted all year round
Understanding the behaviour and environmental impacts of radionuclides such as radium (Ra) and uranium (U) is of critical importance for the management and risk modelling of sites with elevated concentrations of these radionuclides.
  Potential role of digital twins in seeking consensus for GDF siting
  Prof R Taylor, Prof EA Patterson
Applications accepted all year round
A new consent-based process for siting a Geological Disposal Facility (GDF) was launched by the UK government in December 2018. Proposals for the implementation of this process are captured in a revised ‘Working with Communities’ framework published as part of the launch.
  Large Scale Bioenergy & BECCS Net Negative Emission Strategies & the Potential Role of Waste & Residue Feedstocks
  Dr A Lea-Langton, Dr A Welfle, Dr C Gough
Application Deadline: 24 March 2019
Background. More than 85% of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) scenarios for achieving the emissions targets of the ‘Paris Agreement’ are reliant on net negative emissions in the second half of this century.
  Funded Planning and Environment PhD opportunities
Planning and Environmental Management at The University of Manchester concerns the development of the communities and places in which we live and work.
  Change lives and shape futures with a PhD in Arts, Humanities or Social Sciences
Join a research community that transcends disciplinary boundaries to tackle the biggest challenges facing humanity. United, we're tackling global challenges such as environmental sustainability, climate change, business innovation, social justice, poverty and conflict response.
  WRDTP ESRC PhD Studentships 2019/20
 . The White Rose Social Sciences Doctoral Training Partnership (WRDTP), accredited by the Economic and Social Research Council in 2016, is a collaboration across the social sciences at the Universities of Leeds, Sheffield, York, Bradford, Sheffield Hallam, Hull, and Manchester Metropolitan.
  Environmental contaminants and barriers to sustainable health and development
  Dr D Mondal
Applications accepted all year round
The project will involve population based study in areas where populations are exposed to environmental contaminants like heavy metals, for example arsenic, cadmium and lead.
  Creating Sustainable Cities: From Radical Green Infrastructure to Urban Agriculture
  Dr M Hardman
Applications accepted all year round
With the global population reaching 9.6 billion by 2050 and cities set to expand, there is an urgent need to explore ways of making urban areas more sustainable.
