Investigating the role of the biofilm in waste water treatment plants as a reservoir for antimicrobial resistance

Ref. SHLS20023 Spencer. Background. By 2050, 10 million premature deaths could occur annually as the result of antimicrobial resistance (AMR). An important route of AMR into the environment is via the sewerage network where key control points are the wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs). Read more

Unlocking the deep-marine stratigraphic record in confined basin-fills

The deep-marine stratigraphic record provides a cryptic archive of palaeoenvironmental change. To unlock this record requires the study of ancient exhumed systems, and improved understanding of sediment gravity flow processes. Read more

Recent Advancements on Life Cycle Assessment

We offer a partially funded PhD opportunity to work with leading experts in Life Cycle Assessment and Industrial Symbiosis. This project evolves around the development of zero waste industries and industrial symbiosis, which is one of the ways to achieve the zero-waste target. Read more

Where does all the carbon go? Determining the carbon pool turnover rates in semi-arid biomes of Australia.

Aims. The semi-arid ecosystems of Australia have been recognised a global carbon sink anomaly, accounting for almost 60% of global carbon uptake during consecutive seasons of high rainfall arising from La Niña events. Read more

PhD in Applied Ecology - Developing data-driven modelling in Applied Ecology

We live in a changing world and a challenge for ecologists is to forecast how such changes will impact on natural populations. We tackle problems such as forest management, weed invasions and predicting the impacts of land management on populations of plants, insects and birds. Read more

Smart optimization of energy performance and infoor air quality in residential buildings

The energy performance of residential buildings needs to be radically improved to meet ambitious climate change goals, however this must be achieved while maintaining an acceptable and preferably a desirable indoor environment. Read more
