About the Project
In this project, you will explore the effects of enhanced frequency of winter defrosting on carbon and nutrient cycling, focussing on the environmental consequences, such as the loss of soil organic matter and nutrient capital, increased greenhouse gas emissions, changes in plant performance and competition, and increased losses of nutrients. You will become competent in the use state-of-the-art methods to study the atmospheresoil-plant interactions, including portable greenhouse gas emission measurement equipment, stable and radioisotopes and metabolomics. The research will use a combination of laboratory and field-based experimentation, requiring regular visits to the high Arctic.
Applicant should hold a 2:1 degree or above in a subject related to this PhD project including: Biology, Environmental Science, Microbiology, Agriculture, Biotechnology.
