  Understanding the genetic blueprint of photosynthetic bacteria?
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr R Puxty, Prof D J Scanlan
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Highlights. Cutting-edge 3D chromosome reconstruction and “gene transplants” using CRISPR. Understanding the evolution of chromosomes of photosynthetic organisms.
  Regional 3D atmosphere and ocean models to quantify the impact of oceanic sources on the regional Hg budget.
  Dr N Pirrone
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

To improve the modelling of Hg red-ox chemistry schemes in the atmosphere and implement exchange processes between the ocean and the atmosphere to facilitate the coupling between 3D atmospheric and oceanic models; to evaluate model updates using observational data and investigate the role of oceanic emissions; to investigate the impact of emission changes on Hg cycling in Europe.
  NERC-funded PhD studentships: Department of Earth Science and Engineering, Imperial College London

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Science and Solutions for a Changing Planet (SSCP) Doctoral Training Partnership integrates six host partners and a number of business and policy sector partners, to offer an exciting programme that trains and inspires the next generation of environmental experts and leaders to tackle some of the toughest challenges of our time.
  Rifting to continental breakup: Comparing the tectonic evolution of the Porcupine Basin and Rockall Trough with Breakup west of Spain
  Prof T J Reston, Dr S Jones
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The breakup of continents to form ocean basins is a first order tectonic process.
  Monitoring chemical dynamics in soil and water with advanced microfluidic sensors
  Research Group: Mechatronics Engineering
  Dr X. Niu
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Dr. Xize Niu. Co-supervisor Dr. Adrian Nightingale and Prof. Tiina Roose. Project description. Excess nitrogen and phosphorous leaching from agricultural and horticultural lands into waterways is a long-standing challenge for agricultural sustainability and environmental protection.
  Closing loopholes in the nitrogen cycle: Nitrification now and in the future
  Dr A Yool, Prof T Tyrrell, Dr A Martin, Prof N Bates
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Nitrification ( oxidation) of ammonia (NH3) back to nitrate (NO3-) is an important regenerative step in the nitrogen cycles of both marine and terrestrial systems.
  Quantification of benthic invertebrate burrow architecture
  Prof M Solan, Dr J Leyland, Dr J Godbold, Mr M Mavrogordato
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Marine sediments provide habitat for a wide range of organisms and exploitation of this three-dimensional environment is important in mediating major ecosystem properties.
  Arctic sea-ice decline: An ‘opening’ for more wind energy input to the ocean?
  Dr Y Lenn, Dr T Rippeth
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Arctic summers are now characterized by ever-expanding areas of open water exposed by the declining sea ice. This dramatic decline has input fresh meltwater to the surface ocean and created more openings for direct exchange of heat, freshwater and momentum (i.e.
  Quantitative Ecology of Antarctic Benthic Communities
  Dr R Whittle, Dr E Mitchell
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ecological structure of modern Antarctic benthic marine communities is unique and differs from the rest of the world. It is dominated by epifaunal suspension feeders (including brachiopods, sponges and stalked crinoids) in shelf areas, with a paucity of shell crushing predators (sharks, rays, durophagous decapods).
  Exploration of long-term observational data sets to examine ocean/atmosphere exchange processes of Hg.
  Dr R Ebinghaus
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Long-term atmospheric data sets with high time resolution are existing for a globally increasing number of sites with the earliest ones starting already in 1995.
  PhD in Earth Sciences:Modelling coral survival in a warming world
  Dr B Swallow, Dr N Kamenos, Prof M Scott, Dr H Burdett
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ecosystem services provided by coral reefs are worth over $100 billion annually and include coast line protection, tourism, food and medical derivatives.
  Development of Robust Simultaneous Localisation and Mapping Techniques for Autonomous Underwater Vehicles Operating under the Polar Sea-Ice
  Prof E Rogers, Dr A. Phillips, Dr G Salavasidis
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Despite the considerable effort directed towards AUV navigation, a self-contained solution remains a key challenge.
  Testing the links between magmatic, tectonic and climate controls on hydrothermal activity at the Mid-Atlantic Ridge
  Dr A Lichtschlag, Dr B Murton, Prof R James
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. High temperature hydrothermal activity at mid-ocean ridges is driven mainly by magmatic heat and crystallization and responds to structural processes that open-up and maintain fluid pathways from the interior of the ocean crust to the seafloor.
