  Reconstructing BSE: Government Policy and Public Health across Humans and Animals (October 2019 or January 2020 start)
  Dr J Stark, Prof G.J.N Gooday, Dr D Gilfoyle
Application Deadline: 30 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is a collaborative doctoral project with The National Archives and explores the intersection of public health policy, science communication, and human-animal interactions.
  Genomic basis of extra-group paternity in the cooperatively breeding Seychelles warbler
  Dr H L Dugdale
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Indirect genetic benefits are hypothesised to drive the evolution of extra-group paternity (EGP), yet its genomic basis is unknown.
  Identifying strategies for carbon-efficient commercial farming in the UK - Priestley Doctoral Scholarships
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Prof L.G. Firbank, Dr M Galdos
Application Deadline: 17 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

It is well known that much of current agriculture is a source of carbon emissions. In response, the National Farming Union (NFU) has announced a goal of reaching net carbon emissions across the whole of agriculture in England and Wales by 2040.
  Making the Invisible Visible: Environmental Data Visualisation for Research and Public Engagement
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Dr C Hassall
Application Deadline: 31 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Note. This project is a self-funded MSc by Research. That means that the candidate would need to pay their own fees and maintenance.
  Marine ecology and spatial planning for changing coral reef ecosystems
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Dr M Beger
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is an open call for international or self-funded students who wish to develop their skill base in marine conservation science.
  Feedback-responsive protocells
  Dr P Beales
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Feedback in chemical systems can give rise to clocks, bistable switches or oscillations; all of these features are employed by living cells in order to generate robust decisions and outputs while existing in a deafening background of thermodynamic noise.
  Magnox sludge immobilisation in bespoke acid-based geopolymers
  Dr S Bernal, Dr S Adu-Amankwah, Dr L Black
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Disposal of magnesium-bearing intermediate level waste sludge arising from reprocessed spent fuel from Magnox reactors in the UK presents significant decommissioning challenges.
  Novel routes for manufacturing low carbon cements
  Dr S Bernal, Dr S Adu-Amankwah
Application Deadline: 15 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Global population growth, and the increased need for infrastructure, has doubled since 1990 the worldwide demand for Portland cement (PC), which is the main binder used in almost all concretes.
  Fault Geomorphology and Seismic Hazard of Major Fault Zones
  Dr J Elliott, Dr L Gregory, Prof T Wright
Application Deadline: 28 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project description. This exciting project aims to improve our understanding of relative crustal faulting activity and better assess earthquake hazard on a number of major fault zones by combining high resolution satellite optical imagery and DEMs with deterministic seismic hazard and risk models.
