  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.
  Drivers of marine ecosystem change during an ancient abrupt global warming event
  Dr K Edgar, Dr R Butler
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Palaeocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM) ~56 million years ago, is the largest of a series of abrupt global warming events known from the Cenozoic.
  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.
  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.
  Predicting future fuel (vegetation) water moisture content and associated wildfire danger across temperate Europe
  Dr N Kettridge
Application Deadline: 11 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project will help formulate an effective temperate European Fire Danger rating system that is urgently needed to support the management of increased wildfire occurrence expected under changing climatic conditions.
  The economic and quantitative analysis of wildfires in Europe
  Dr N Kettridge
Application Deadline: 11 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The PhD project aims to understand and model the economic contexts that lead to wildfires and their economic implications at the micro and macro level.
  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.
  Validating Cenozoic records of deep-sea ostracod diversity
  Dr I Boomer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ostracods are microscopic, bivalved crustaceans that have a long fossil record in marine and non-marine habitats. The existence of deep-sea ostracod assemblages in today’s oceans have been known since the 19th century Challenger expedition.
