  Chemical cocktails: understanding the combined effects of nanoparticles and pharmaceutical on microbial species and populations.
  Dr I Lynch
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Given that pharmaceuticals and nanomaterials (NMs) used in consumer products such as sunscreens and cosmetics have the same discharge pathways (i.e.
  Children’s Geographies,Geographies of Education and Architecture & Carceral Geographyand the Post-Prison

 I would encourage applications from potential PhD students interested in the following broad areas of research. • Children's geographies.
  Holocene rapid climate change and vegetation response in Cappadocia, Turkey
  Dr W J Eastwood, Dr J P Sadler
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Multi-proxy approaches to integrated regional studies of environmental variability during the late Glacial and Holocene can provide valuable insights into the ways that significant shifts in climate have affected natural ecosystems, landscapes and human activities over decadal, centennial and millennial timescales.
  Hot stuff? Evaluating the human exposure hazard presented by land contaminated with organic flame retardants
  Prof S J Harrad, Dr M Abdallah
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chemical flame retardants (FRs) such as polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) and chlorinated organophosphates (e.g. tris (2-chloroisopropyl)phosphate – TCIPP) have been used extensively in a wide range of applications worldwide.
  How will global crop production develop under climate change? Improving our predictive capability.
  Dr T Pugh, Prof M Tausz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Crop yields are highly sensitive to climate, with even relatively moderate climate change, such as that aimed for by the Paris agreement, placing future food security in doubt (Pugh et al., 2016).
  Isotope-enabled climate modelling to better understand long-term rainfall dynamics in North Africa
  Dr P Hopcroft, Dr M Widmann, Dr G C LECKEBUSCH
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project highlights. Study climate in a region that is particularly vulnerable to future change. Use isotope-enabled and high-resolution climate model simulations to investigate how the Sahara became ‘Green’ 9000-4000 years ago.
  Microplastics as conduits of flame retardants in birds feeding on landfills
  Dr M Abdallah, Dr S J Reynolds
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is increasing evidence of widespread ingestion of plastics by birds, mistaking it for food, during foraging. The demonstrated effects of plastic ingestion by birds include.
  Quantifying the role of forest disturbance regimes in macroecology and carbon cycling
  Dr T Pugh, Dr E Marais
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

big advances in assessing the frequency with which forests are impacted by large disturbances worldwide (Hansen et al., 2014), but in many ecosystems small-medium-sized disturbances may be much more important (Espirito-Santo et al., 2014).
  The role of forest demography in controlling the terrestrial carbon sink
  Dr T Pugh, Dr T Matthews
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Forest demography, that is the establishment and mortality rates of trees, and the structure of that vegetation within forests, is a fundamental factor underlying the function of a forest and the services it provides.
  Total Atmospheric Emissions from the Biosphere
  Dr W J Bloss, Dr L Kramer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The dominant source of hydrocarbons to the atmosphere is vegetation – biogenic volatile organic compounds or BVOCs. In the atmosphere, BVOCs undergo chemical processing, leading to the formation of secondary pollutants such as ozone and organic aerosol particles, affecting human and environmental health and climate.
