  The mathematics behind the smartness of neural networks
  Dr M S Baptista
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Intelligence is one of the pillars that allows animals to master their environment. Scientific approaches recently proposed have been capable of simulating networked systems that reproduce similar emergent manifestations of behavior as those observed in the brain.
  QUADRAT DTP CASE: Acoustic detection & characterisation of cod in the north east Atlantic
  Dr P Fernandes, Prof J Dick
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

After decades of overexploitation in the 20th century, most fish stocks in the North east Atlantic are now sustainably fished and showing strong signs of recovery (Fernandes and Cook, 2013).
  QUADRAT DTP CASE: Environmental Impacts of Offshore Wind Turbines: A life cycle assessment of Bottom-fixed versus Floating Wind Turbine Concepts
  Dr A Hastings, Dr M Karimirad
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Laws enacted by the UK and devolved administration mandates achieving net-zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2050. Floating offshore wind is a key technology to decarbonize electricity generation as the sites available for fixed structures are limited.
  QUADRAT DTP CASE: How effective are Protected Areas in conserving biodiversity?
  Dr L Ross, Dr D Pincheira-Donoso
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Protected Areas (PAs) are of critical importance to biodiversity conservation at a time of unprecedented rates of biodiversity loss due to multiple and interacting anthropogenic drivers of change.
  QUADRAT DTP CASE: Is a trophic cascade framework useful for predicting the outcome of rewilding in plantation forests?
  Prof X Lambin, Dr P Caplat
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Rewilding is a novel approach to conservation that captures the public’s imagination and focuses on ecosystem processes rather than necessarily restoring a system to its antecedent state.
  QUADRAT DTP CASE: Sustainable Resilience to Coastal Erosion: Innovative Approaches to Protection of Assets Along Coastlines at Risk
  Dr D Green, Prof J McKinley
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

All coastlines are subject to dynamic change through wave and wind action resulting in significant loss or gain of land through erosion and/or accretion.
  QUADRAT DTP CASE: The interaction between carbonates, igneous intrusions and CO2 in the ocean system
  Dr D Muirhead, Dr K O'Driscoll
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Contact metamorphism of carbonaceous sedimentary rocks can lead to the release of significant volumes of gases, particularly CO2 and related fluids.
  QUADRAT DTP CASE: Waste to Land - Differential priming of soil carbon driven by additions of organic wastes
  Dr L Mbadugha, Dr P Williams
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The application of organic wastes (from food and agricultural residues) to land is becoming an increasingly popular method of waste management, on both national and international scale.
  QUADRAT DTP: Actions of early life endocrine-disrupting chemical exposure on adult fish health using the zebrafish model
  Prof S Martin, Prof G Hardiman
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Landfills and other legacy waste sites in coastal zones are major sources of persistent organic pollutants (POPs), including polychlorinated biphenyl (PCBs), Perfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs), to transitional waters and marine environments.
  QUADRAT DTP: Assessing the vulnerability of marine ecosystems to climate change in the North East Atlantic
  Dr C T Marshall, Dr P Collins
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate vulnerability is the degree to which a system is susceptible to, or unable to cope with, the adverse effects of climate change.
  QUADRAT DTP: Automated soil profiling: identification of soil characteristics using Machine Learning and image analysis
  Dr Q Gan, Prof J McKinley
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Soil properties, such as porosity, bulk density, soil water contact are subjected to change due to complex interacting process, including physical, chemical and biological process.
  QUADRAT DTP: Chronology and Changing Cultures on the Mongolian Steppe
  Dr J Wright, Prof P Reimer
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Learn state of the art chronological tools in one of the most dynamic archaeological environments in Asia. Aims. Mongolia has been the most rapidly developing archaeological territory in Eastern Eurasia.
  QUADRAT DTP: Climate change impacts on seasonal water storage and flow: implications for environmental management
  Dr J Geris, Dr D Mullan
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Catchment water storage is one of the most important functions controlling water availability and streamflow. Where and when water is stored and how different ’stores’ (e.g.
  QUADRAT DTP: Climate Change in the Medieval Northern World and its impact on Respiratory Health
  Dr R Crozier, Prof E Murphy
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A wealth of research using (Greenlandic) ice sheet cores, dendrochronology and dinoflagellate cysts have identified a period of profound climate change in medieval Europe.
  QUADRAT DTP: Co-evolution of Earth and Life: are land plants good for coral reefs?
  Dr A Brasier, Dr J Sigwart
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

For the first four billion years of its history, the Earth was a fundamentally different planet to that which we know today. the only green covering on land (if any) was provided by mats of microbes.
