  Total Atmospheric Emissions from the Biosphere
  Dr W J Bloss, Dr L Kramer
Applications accepted all year round
The dominant source of hydrocarbons to the atmosphere is vegetation – biogenic volatile organic compounds or BVOCs. In the atmosphere, BVOCs undergo chemical processing, leading to the formation of secondary pollutants such as ozone and organic aerosol particles, affecting human and environmental health and climate.
  Leaf chemistry response to elevated CO2: decomposition and nutrient cycle impacts
  Dr R Bartlett, Dr L Batty
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The Birmingham Institute of Forest Research Free Air Carbon Enrichment Facility (BIFoR FACE) is an outdoor experiment studying the impact of elevated carbon dioxide (eCO2) on an established deciduous forest ecosystem through several multi-disciplinary research projects.
  Microplastics as conduits of flame retardants in birds feeding on landfills
  Dr M Abdallah, Dr S. J Reynolds
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
There is increasing evidence of widespread ingestion of plastics by birds, mistaking it for food, during foraging. The demonstrated effects of plastic ingestion by birds include.
  Hot stuff? Evaluating the human exposure hazard presented by land contaminated with organic flame retardants
  Prof S J Harrad, Dr M Abdallah
Applications accepted all year round
Chemical flame retardants (FRs) such as polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) and chlorinated organophosphates (e.g. tris (2-chloroisopropyl)phosphate – TCIPP) have been used extensively in a wide range of applications worldwide.
  Microplastics as conduits of flame retardants in birds feeding on landfills
  Dr M Abdallah, Dr S J Reynolds
Applications accepted all year round
There is increasing evidence of widespread ingestion of plastics by birds, mistaking it for food, during foraging. The demonstrated effects of plastic ingestion by birds include.
  Biomass fractionation into high-value fuels and chemicals
  Dr P Blanco-Sanchez
Applications accepted all year round
Self-funded applications are invited for a three-year PhD programme, to be undertaken within the European Bioenergy Research Institute (EBRI) at Aston University.
  Non-exhaust particulate matter from road traffic
  Prof R Harrison, Dr Z Shi
Applications accepted all year round
Background. Our group has been at the forefront of work internationally to characterise and quantify non-exhaust emissions from road traffic1.
  Air quality box modelling for an urban street network
  Dr X Cai, Dr W J Bloss
Applications accepted all year round
Air pollution associated with the road traffic is the major environmental issue in urban areas. Buildings in urban areas are the artificial obstacles to the urban atmospheric flow and cause the insufficient ventilation.
