  A New Energy System Architecture - MScR in Global Environmental Challenges
  Dr C Nolden
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

About the Project. A new energy system architecture is emerging. Centralised fossil-fuel electricity generation and transmission is making way for a renewable energy powered distributed system.
  Atmospheric dispersion of greenhouse gases using novel tracers - MScR in Global Environmental Challenges
  Prof S O'Doherty, Dr M Rigby, Prof P Simmonds
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

About the Project. Emissions of greenhouse gases are now widely recognised as a potential threat to the long-term stability of the Earth’s climate.
  Changing diets for sustainability - MScR in Global Environmental Challenges
  Prof D Southerton
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

About the Project. To meet the global challenges posed by climate change and food security will require that people change their diets.
  Changing Ice - Opportunities for Interdisciplinary Research in the Polar Regions - MScR in Global Environmental Challenges

PhD Type

About the Project.
  Data mining for microbial adaptation to climate change - MScR in Global Environmental Challenges
  Dr G Barker
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

About the Project. Microbes are key members of nutrient and energy cycles in all global ecosystems. Whole meta genome DNA sequencing is increasingly used to characterise microbial ecosystems and vast amounts of data are deposited in the public domain every year.
  Does CO2 Enrichment of Temperate Forests also Affect Soil N Cycling and the Emission of Nitrous Oxide (N2O)? - MScR in Global Environmental Challenges
  Dr J House, Dr F Sgouridis
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

About the Project. Increasing atmospheric CO2 concentrations in temperate forests may affect soil nitrogen (N) cycling processes due to the increased demand for nitrogen availability by tree photosynthesis.
