  A Global Assessment of Future Risk for Glacier-Related Hazards
  Dr NE Barrand, Dr J Larsen, Prof D M Hannah, Dr J Mackay
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A variety of projection studies forecast significant mass loss of glaciers in regions for which populations rely on meltwater for subsistence, agriculture, infrastructure and commercial operations1.
  Assessing the sustainability of lithium brine extraction in high Andean salars
  Dr A Hughes, Dr E Petavratzi, Prof S Krause
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lithium brines, found in high Andean salars, are an important source of lithium essential for decarbonisation technologies. In recent years, the market for lithium – ion batteries (LIBs) has been growing rapidly.
  Carbon emissions from the Karoo-Ferrar large igneous province
  Dr S Greene, Dr S Jones
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many of the most severe climate ‘events’ and carbon cycle perturbations of the Meso-Cenozoic coincide with major episodes of volcanism linked to Large Igneous Provinces (LIPs).
  Changing extremes at the extremes: how will climate change impact hydroclimatic extremes in the Himalayas?
  Dr M Widmann, Dr A Van Loon, Dr NE Barrand, Dr J Larsen
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The livelihoods of over 1 bn people inhabiting the Himalayan region and the downstream river basins are heavily dependent on agriculture, making them highly vulnerable to water shortages and flood events.
  Do wooded networks (Treescapes) enhance bird dispersal and movement in cities?
  Dr J P Sadler, Dr S. J Reynolds, Dr T Matthews
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cities are characterised by highly modified and complex habitats comprising a rich mosaic of greenspaces with wooded networks (Fig.
  Effects of atmospheric Nitrogen pollution on Soil Carbon Storage and greenhouse gas emission from forests soils.
  Dr S Ullah, Dr L Hamilton
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Conservation of forest ecosystems support a range of vital functions including providing habitat to wildlife, regulation of water resources and capturing atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) for long-term storage in soils and in biomass.
  Enhancing peatland resilience to wildfire through ecological and hydrological reclamation; building the evidence base.
  Dr N Kettridge, Dr S Ullah
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The recent Saddleworth Moor fire burned over 1000 hectares of UK upland, instigated a major national incident, led to the evacuation of 100 homes and placed considerable strain on UK emergency services, with even the army activated to support fire suppression.
  Environmental applications of fluorescence spectroscopy
  Dr C Bradley, Prof D M Hannah, Dr K Khamis, Dr S Manaseki-Holland
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fluorescence spectroscopy enables microbiological activity in water to be characterised rapidly as organic molecules fluoresce when excited at certain wavelengths of light.
  Evaluating the impact of clean air actions on air quality, health and economy using big data and machine learning techniques
  Dr Z Shi, Prof R J R Elliott
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Air pollution is the single largest risk to human health, contributing to more deaths (7 million) than all other environmental risks combined (Landrigan et al., 2017).
  Fish like it hot? Response of fish and shark communities to abrupt past global warming
  Dr K Edgar, Dr I Sansom
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Palaeocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM) ~56 million years ago, is the largest of a series of abrupt Cenozoic global warming events.
