  Effects of microplastic on ecosystem services in salt marshes (NOLTESU20SCI50)
  Dr S Nolte, Dr T Tolhurst, Dr A Mayes
Application Deadline: 24 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microplastic (MP) pollution has generated huge scientific and public interest in recent years. Early research mainly focused on the marine environment, studying MP abundance and impacts on fauna.
  Making Waste History? Innovation for sustainable consumption (HARGREAVESTU20SCI50)
  Dr T Hargreaves, Dr G Seyfang
Application Deadline: 24 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The challenge of Making Waste History will demand transformative innovation in both the systems that uphold contemporary ways of living (e.g.
  Quantifying the benefits of climate change mitigation for the agricultural sector (WARRENRU20SCIO)
  Prof R Warren, Dr J Price
Application Deadline: 30 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The risks associated with global warming have become well known and are synthesized in reports of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) which inform global and national decision makers who create and influence climate change policy.
  Using underwater robots to measure the breathing of the ocean (ROBINSONCU20SCIO)
  Prof C Robinson, Dr G Dall'Olmo
Application Deadline: 30 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The problem. The ocean is running out of oxygen, thereby reducing the volume of water in which oxygen breathing fish can live. Yet our understanding of how microbial respiration, the main process removing oceanic oxygen, is affected by increasing temperature, is severely limited.
  Sticking your neck out - saving giraffes in a climate changed world (PRICEJU20SCIEC)
  Dr J Price, Prof R Warren
Application Deadline: 30 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Giraffes are in trouble! .

  Dr H Pallett, Dr J Chilvers
Application Deadline: 30 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Practices of democratic governance and decision-making have been institutionalised in environmental policy, yet are constantly evolving and travelling, and new democratic practices are continually being developed.
  Tropical weather systems and their global impacts: How will they evolve with climate change? (MATTHEWSAU20SCIO)
  Prof A J Matthews, Prof D Stevens
Application Deadline: 30 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The eastern Indian and western Pacific Oceans form the “tropical warm pool”, the largest area of warm ocean on the planet. The warm pool provides the heat and moisture for the most intense atmospheric convection (thousands of cumulonimbus clouds) on Earth.
  Isotopic fingerprints of novel sources and sinks for atmospheric nitrous oxide (N2O) (KAISERJU20SCIO)
  Prof J Kaiser, Dr P Suntharalingam
Application Deadline: 30 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nitrous oxide (N2O) is the third-most important anthropogenic greenhouse gas and the most important currently emitted ozone-depleting substance.
  Environmental data science: a new machine learning approach to study the influence of climate change on extreme weather (NOWACKPU20SCIEC)
  Dr P Nowack, Prof M Joshi
Application Deadline: 30 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change is one of the most pressing societal and scientific challenges. Improving our understanding of climate change, in particular concerning its impacts on the country- or even city-scale, is therefore a global research priority.
  New Fluorometric Assays for Drug Discovery and Plankton Respiration (MUNOZMU20SCIO)
  Dr M Munoz-Herranz, Prof C Robinson
Application Deadline: 30 January 2020

Funding Type
