About the Project

This is an excellent opportunity for a full time MSc by Research project which will last for 12 months. The project offers a unique opportunity for a student to work closely with Cranfield University and CCm Technologies in a project that involves using carbon capture technology to produce biochar, stable carbon amendment suitable for soil application and assess impact on greenhouse gas emissions. The student will receive a stipend of £16k, tax free and full UK fees covered by CCm Technologies. In addition to this there is also funding to cover laboratory analysis, field work and participation in workshops and conferences.

This project will provide an opportunity to gather dataset that can be used to proof the impact of using biochar in sequestering carbon soil and also influence greenhouse gas measurements.

There will be an opportunity to present your work in national conferences and submit to a suitable journal for peer-reviewed publication. This work is very timely with current policies such as the Net Zero Carbon target and Agricultural Bill. You will also gain trainings in current analytical facilities in soil science and be part of a vibrant research group in the UK.

You will gain experience of engaging with an industrial sponsor and work in a field-scale experimental trial. In addition to this, there will be an opportunity of using novel greenhouse gas measurement techniques.

Entry requirements

Applicants should have a First or Second Class Upper UK Honours Degree or equivalent in subjects such as Soil Science, Environmental Science, Plant Science, Agronomy, Geography or Chemistry. Applicants with experience in carrying out field-scale trials will be beneficial.
